Our Two Cents
The Hydro GT gloves from Cortech have features like a race glove, but are constructed with a breathable/waterproof membrane to make them suitable for wet weather. The outside of the glove is constructed of tough, durable goatskin leather with molded polyurethane protectors on the knuckles, fingers and palm. The combination of all this makes these gloves feel sturdy and secure on the hands. Further protection of the knuckle area is provided by the stainless steel guard set into the PU knuckle protector. The palm and fingers have seams that were stitched on the outside, which makes for a much more comfortable wearing experience; seams stitched to the inside look nicer but can rub on your fingers and hand. The palm and fingers are pre-curved for a more comfortable ride. Overall, I really like these gloves, especially for the price. I think it will appeal to sport/street riders who know they’ll be riding in wet weather from time to time, and who want the protective features similar to a sport/race glove.
