Summer Gloves

Looking for comfortable summer touring gloves, good airflow and proper stiching any input would be helpful I have large hands so stiching is important. Thanks in advance

Re: Summer Gloves

I've been wearing HD light weight gloves almost year round, except when it is really cold. At $55.00, I feel like they are over priced, but I've yet to find another pair that are as comfortable. They seem to last several years before the stitching starts to wear. They are fairly thin and probably only provide minimal protection though in a spill.

Re: Summer Gloves

Hey;

I have had the Alpinestars MX6 for a long time, i think 3rd pair, very good, cool, and last a long time. Now on a pair of Dianese air tex. Also great, a tad warmer but not much. Has better protection, 2X cost.90$ to 40$. worth it???? will see, only had them 6 months, everyday riding. 600miles/week.
Take a look.

45 years riding and still more places to see.
