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 need 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.
- Not waterproof, I use montbell (see below) over gloves to combat this.
- The tanned part stains your hands yellow when wet.
- Not warm in winter with grip heaters (Lee Park Designs have a lined version too)
- Can only buy in the U.S. (Boo Boo) I live in Japan and need another pairs soon.
Montbell over gloves for those wet and cold days
