Our Two Cents
The Baja mesh gloves give just a little more coverage and protection than most summer gloves. The palms of the glove are made of what feels like leather. It is light grey with a dot pattern printed on it. FirstGear calls it “Amara”.
There is some additional padding and a second overlay of leather in the upper palm area which feels nice. The back of the hands have some mesh to let air flow through. And then at the wrist is a larger than usual neoprene cuff. The longer cuff is a bit unusual for a summer glove, but I’ve heard lots of people say they’d like to have a bit of a cuff on a summer glove to keep the sun off and give coverage between their jacket sleeve and glove cuff, so here you go!
Overall a very nice looking and nice feeling summer glove… especially for the price! Take the “View Larger Images” link above to see some more close up pics of the leather, cuff, etc. :: Paul, 04-07-15
Happy Customers Who Bought This Product
I bought both the Baja and Sedona Mesh gloves on closeout. They are great summer gloves. Some other Firstgear gloves have a very tight opening at the wrist. (Read more...)
I just ordered one pair of Sedona gloves and one pair of Baja Mesh gloves with mountain biking in mind. First off, my order shipped amazingly quickly and the price was fantastic compared to what dedicated bicycling gloves cost. The fit is true to size, wrist is a little tight getting over the hands, but I consider that a good thing. (Read more...)
