After my first three months of riding, I’d gone through two sets of gloves, a Japanese brand and famous American brand both costing around 5,000 yen each.  After this wallet eating adventure needed something better, and after a few google searches and I had stumbled on Lee Parks Design gloves.

Now These gloves have gone through 67,000km (416,318 miles) and spent three months lost in my front garden during one winter after I put a rock through my shin on a hiking trip (long story)

I have used them while bee keeping and when weed eating the apiaries.

Now there are a few problems with them.

  1. Not waterproof, I use Montbell (see below) over gloves to combat this.
  2. The tanned part stains your hands yellow when wet.
  3. Not warm in winter, even with grip heaters (Lee Park Designs have a lined version too)
  4. Can only buy in the U.S. 🙁 I live in Japan and need another pair soon.
