Durable and comfortable
on July 15, 2012
At any given time, I usually have three or four pairs of gloves. All of mine are Pearl Izumi.
These are durable summer-weight gloves. There's enough padding to reduce road buzz and make leaning on you brake hoods painless, but not so much that you feel you're wearing mittens. They're well-sewn, too. My non-Pearl gloves used to fail when the palm came apart. My Pearls last until the back of the glove gets thin with use. That's a lot of miles.
SIZE UP. I always buy the XXLs, and I don't have a particularly broad hand.
Don't be afraid of the screaming yellow color. Yeah, they show dirt a bit. But they're very visible on the road, and you want drivers to notice your directional signals.
