I have been using these new gloves from Chilhowee.
After my recent experiences I started to seek a new pair of gloves. These may look simple however are anything but. Made from Deer skin and with a cotton lining they are incredibly comfortable, like no other glove I have ever worn.
The makers say Deer skin is more abrasion resistant than cow hide and also can be washed unlike leather gloves. The washing now and again is a probably a good idea in these days of pandemics however I would buy these again just for how they feel. They delivered a new level of comfort on that 800km ride I did recently.
They will be too warm to wear in our summer however now that I have experienced Deer skin I am going to look at the rest of the gloves on offer.
I think this is the turning point for me with how I shop for motorcycle rider apparel, I really need to take in to account my special needs for ultra comfortable gloves that do not irritate my skin - harder to get right than I realised.
These gloves cost me $29.95 US (+ shipping) and are really great values regardless of the exchange rate. Good service, good communication. For more info have a look at Chilhowee Motorcycle Leather
Despite some home renovation work I need to work on if we get a fine Winters day this weekend I am going to head out for a ride. I think the Tweed Valley might still be recovering from the recent floods so I may take another ride around the south west area and try capture some of the mountain views in the early morning. Should be clear air if this rain stops.
On my last trip south of Beaudesert I saw the skid marks where a Motorcycle Paradise reader was nearly wiped out by a drunk in a car. Keep alert and stay safe this long weekend. Regards IC.
