Our Two Cents

About this sale and warranty: Held gloves (and other apparel products) are made by Held GmbH in Germany and have been distributed in the US for the last 10 years or so by Held USA, which is a small “mom and pop” out of North Carolina. In mid-December, Held USA announced they were quitting business. And at that time, we bought their remaining inventory of Held gloves in the US as a closeout/liquidation. Other retailers may also have some gloves in their stock as well but there has not yet been a new distributor established and therefore no more stock is currently available. We are hoping for the announcement of a new US distributor because we think they are a fine product line, our customers enjoy them and we experience very few warranty issues. And speaking of warranty, since there is currently no US distributor to inspect and repair/replace gloves as a result of a warranty claim, there is no way for consumers to exercise a warranty claim. We will of course still accept returns of new/unused gloves within 30 days of your order (just like any other product), but we will not offer any warranty whatsoever on any glove that has been used or not returned during that time frame. We are hopeful a new distributor will be announced and they will provide normal warranty coverage, but right now, we can’t tell you when or if that will happen.

About this product: Well, hmmmm… the name of this Agadir glove by Held is unfortunately the thing I like best about it. Reminds me of the Agador Spartacus (close enough in spelling) character in the Bird Cage movie. What a hoot! Anyway, back to the gloves. These gloves have internally sewn finger seams and those seams are really bulky especially at the ends of the fingers. Every time I make a fist, my fingernails catch on them which would get sort of maddening. Also, the materials of the gloves only seem “ordinary” in quality to me. Held gloves generally give me a lot more glow than these do. If you want a pair, we’ll sell them to you, but I won’t recommend them to you. Paul :: 03-25-12
Since I wrote my initial review, I received more information about this gloves from our capable US Held distributor Tommy Kincaid. He is quite “sold” on this gloves obvoiusly, and the information about the Kangaroo leather is relevant. My dislike for the look and feel may be born from lack of familiarity of the material’s properties. So in the interest of “equal time”, please consider this: “The Agadir glove is full Kangaroo leather; the only other gloves that use all kangaroo leather are the Titan and Phantom race gloves. Held used Kangaroo leather because they wanted a fully perforated leather summer glove and anything other than Kangaroo leather becomes too weak when perforated this much. If you look close, even the kangaroo palm is micro perforated. The 2 small fingers are double layered, padded, and has Superfabric in these critical crash areas. The other fingers and thumb are absent of padding to allow more air to flow through. About use…the Agadir is a super heavy duty perforated summer glove. The Kangaroo leather will give it good road protection.”
