Lookin for deerskin glove recommendations

I want another pair of deerskin gloves. I prefer no finger seams on the palms. Any recommendations?

Wells Lamant Grips will meet you specifications and for under $12. The back of the glove is fabric to help it breath.

Re: Lookin for deerskin glove recommendations

Another source is www.foxcreekleather.com. I have a pair of their deerskin with the seams on the outside and I like them a lot. The only thing I don't like is that they are vat dyed and bleed black for awhile when you sweat in them.

EDIT: Oops that's Drum dyed.

Re: Lookin for deerskin glove recommendations

I am actually able to get coins out of my pockets for the toll roads and the CC at the gas pumps with the gloves on. They are just a tad warm here with our humidity and my hands sweat in them causing them to wear out faster(1 year)

Re: Lookin for deerskin glove recommendations

I primarily use the Advanced Auto Mechanix gloves (about $12-$14) for warm weather, the Cabela's #56835 (about $25-$29) for all but cold weather, and the cold weather gloves (about $45-$50) are in storage..also from Cabela's. All VERY comfy!

I usually need an XL or XXL, and will try on 15+ pair of gloves until I find one to fit each hand. Took at least 8 visits to various stores looking, and four to the Cabela's store to find the last pair. I then had to take two of the final pairs to customer service (one glove fit nicely from each pair), have them take them apart so I could buy the two gloves that fit right.

BMW had a pair I wanted in the worst way, but could not warrant spending nearly $90 on one pair of gloves.

Re: Lookin for deerskin glove recommendations

Put me in the Lee Parks camp with D. Kinsey. A tad pricey but worth it.

Re: Lookin for deerskin glove recommendations

Looks like I may need to start saving for a pair of the Lee Park's gloves.....very nice looking indeed!

Do they run true to size, based on other glove purchases?

Re: Lookin for deerskin glove recommendations

Thanks. The DeerTours look very nice. I saw these earlier but thought I'd check to see what else is out there. You can tell the difference, in appearance, in these compared to some of the less expensive ones. I shouldn't complain about the price- made in USA. If I always buy on the cheap, I guess I shouldn't be surprised when all the jobs will go elsewhere.


Thanks again.

Re: Lookin for deerskin glove recommendations

There's a glove size chart you can print out on their site. I imagine you could send back for an adjustment if you found them to not fit just so.
