Note on Availability: We advertised these on 4-8-14 and sold out of what we bought initially almost immediately (oops… by bad). But I’ve got more on the way, so if you don’t mind waiting a few days for shipment, then tee’em up!
These gloves are consistent with the major brands we carry, so hopefully you’ve had some experience with buying gloves and can choose based upon the fit of a previous pair. If you have no previous experience with glove sizing, go here for help.
Our Two Cents
What in the world is a wind-proof mesh glove you ask? Well, it’s actually a pretty neat concept. The Joe Rocket Hybrid gloves have all the features of a nice mesh summer glove, with a hidden liner that will extend their usable range down into cooler temperatures. These gloves have a thin leather palm with some reinforcement at the base of the palm and at the inner thumb. External stitching on the fingers keeps any seams from digging into your fingers, and the thin material allows for a good feel of the controls. The windproof liner is stored in a pouch on the back of the hand, and is easily deployed if the weather turns chilly. The liner does look a bit funny on the fingers, but it shouldn’t impair your ability to control the bike and those of you who live in areas with dramatic weather changes will appreciate the versatility. We have taken several pictures of these gloves here in our studio, click the “View Larger Images” link above to check them out.
