Does anyone here have any experience with either of these gloves? I'm starting to look for a new set of gloves and the designs from both companies look very close if not identical. They have elk and deerskin, I'd be looking at something with a long cuff to cover the sleeves of my jacket. They look well made and comfortable, my main concern is that they are not pre-curved at all and I find that most gloves that are tend to be more comfortable for riding.I have two pair of Lee Parks gloves. Both going on eight years old. They are amongst my most cherished possessions!
Thanks in advance for your info,
They're both the regular length ones with the seams on the outside. Unlined.
If you've never owned a pair of deerskin gloves, you don't know what you're missing.
Deerskin is so supple, that you can reach in to your pocket (with jeans on) and pick out exact change. The tactile sense that you retain with them on is astonishing. And it stays that way no matter how many times you get it wet.
I wear my Lee Parks day in and day out all year long, on the bike and off. Not so much as a loose thread has developed. They are THAT well made. Pricey but worth every penny considering that they'll likely be the last pair of gloves you'll ever have to buy.
Can't comment on the Aerostitch gloves but I've been wearing their AD1 pants for two full seasons now and I love them as well.
Just bought a pair of their Combat Touring boots. Can't wait to start breaking in those babies.
