Strengths:    Great looks, function, fit and value.

Weaknesses:    None.

Bottom Line:   
I got these gloves back in 1997 for use with my 1996 GT Ricochet. Great styling, I put thousands of kilometers on them from 1997-2001. The graphics started to fade and came off after many washings.
Bottom Line: They never let me down while cycling. I still have them and use them when using a drill and circular saw.

Strengths:    I guess you could say they're light, but other than that I can't find anything too strong about them.

Weaknesses:    I've used them for less than two months and they've already come apart at the seams, along with holes from passing branches and stuff. My last pair of gloves lasted 3 years, but they don't make those anymore.

Bottom Line:   
I've never bought an answer product before this and I don't think that I'll do so again.

Bottom Line:   

Overall I like the gloves, They fit well and are cool looking. I like the way that the velcro straps go under the wrist. My problem is after a week of hard riding I noticed that the Velcrostraps have been coming un-stiched. It realy bothers me that you pay so much money for a good pair of gloves and the stiching just cant hang with the rider.

Bottom Line:   

I got these gloves from Nashbar about a week ago and I love them. I used them for mowing a lawn the size of Rhode Island and my hands don't hurt. I recomend these to anyone who does the activities other than mountain biking; lift weights, mowing and driving.I also like the armour on the outside. I crashed and I didn't lose even 1 finger. These gloves are worth every pennie.

Bottom Line:   

These gloves are good ones for a reasonable price. I would recommend free-riders like me to own these superb gloves. Washing these gloves
are easy( you just have to dry clean them or another alternative is that you just have to toss the into the washing machine ). Maybe, more padding is needed.

Bottom Line:   

I bought answer gloves, the STRATOS ones, and I wore them every time I
got on my bike! They lasted me 2 whole years!!! I was damned surprised!!
They are good gloves especially for the money (around 25$ U.S.) cuz
they are old models!!! An improvement would be grip shit oh, sorry
grip shift padding on the sides!

Bottom Line:   

These gloves are pretty cool. The armour works well, and they haven't ripped after several stacks. The only thing I would do to improve them would be to put gripshift friendly pads on the thumb and fore-finger. Apart from that, they work fine.(and smell if you can't be bothered to wash them!!!)

Bottom Line:   

I purchased the Answer's because they looked the part, had the armour in the right places, fitted well and the neoprene/velcro wrist allowed me to wear my watch under the glove.Sweet.
They are very comfortable to ride in. But after three rides I discovered (much to my horror) that there was a BLIMMIN' BIG HOLE IN THE LEFT HAND GLOVE!. The stitching had came apart and it looked like it would only get worse with time!
This isn't what you'd expect from such an expensive and well branded glove. But then again brand names don't mean perfection. They just mean hype. The hole wasn't due to a crash either. Just poor stitching. Some double stitching may have saved them, but no, Answer had to skimp somewhere, but why on the there? Come on guys. Double stitching for anything that's gonna take an impact eh?
Great looking glove, but my budget Fox Pawtectors lasted waaayyy longer.

Bottom Line:   

I bought a pair of Stylus for about $35. Overall ... I am happy with the performance. It's lasted for about half a year now but some stitching is coming out. I don't like the fact that it's pretty hard to wear the glove cause the velcro strap seems to stick to the other fingers on your other hand while wearing. Heavy duty protection and bright colours. Pretty good.....

Bottom Line:   

I have had my pair for a few weeks and have not had any problems.
We have had quite a bit of rain and the gloves are holding up
great. They are a little warm for the Miami weather though. Over-
all I am very plased with them. One of the best full-finger
gloves I looked at, a steal at $25.

Bottom Line:   

Answer Gloves Rule. Mine are a year old and I still wear them, even though my middle finger sticks out
of the front of the glove. Too bad that I can not wear the 97 models because
I can not get them too fit snug enough because I have thin wrists

Date Reviewed: February 11, 1997

Bottom Line:   

Gloves are holding up very well--10 months old and washed once a week. They are not very well ventilated making them a sauna on warmer days or long climbs. They do protect very well and have saved my skin on more than one occasion. The cuffs are a little too high to allow for a watch to be worn, but overall they are very comfortable and a good buy.
