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: The Warm ‘n Dry is just the thing for those wanting a very high end glove for cold and/or wet weather. From the outside these look like a very nice street sport glove; full gauntlet, molded knuckle protection, palm protection, etc, but when you slip them on, you get that warm soft cozy feeling you get from very nice winter gloves. In part, this “best of both worlds” situation comes from the way the Gore-Tex is incorporated into the glove, which is new technology from the makers of Gore-Tex . The lining is bonded to the glove’s leather shell using a new process which results in a much thinner glove. So the overall feel for the controls is better in this glove than most other waterproof gloves. And in addition to the waterproof lining, this glove has an extra measure of fleece insulation on the back of the hand. The palm area of the hand is not insulated to improve feel of the controls and to make the most of heated grips. Overall, a very nice, comfy package. And it should be at this price point, right?!

Nice gloves. Fit normal size. I read though and confirmed knuckle protectors could be plastic. (Read more...)
