Strengths:    I'm still using them...

Weaknesses:    The full finger thumb.

Bottom Line:   
I just now ordered new gloves and am still using (for five years) these gloves. They are still in reasonably good shape. I don't ride everyday, but at least a couple times a week. They are faded and worn, but still together and definately usable as a glove. I still don't care for the full finger thumb, which is why I'm not going to purchase these same gloves again, but if they have the same glove without the full finger thumb, I would be sold for life. These things have adequate padding and have maintained their integrity for longer than any glove would be expected to. Five chilies for the durability and longevity.

Strengths:    Well constructed.

Weaknesses:    For my use, none.

Bottom Line:   
I've used these gloves for about two years now. They haven't fallen apart like the other "cheapo" brand gloves I'm used to using. In fairness, the cheapo gloves still lasted at least a couple years each (although they were in VERY poor condition). I don't really understand the need for a full fingered thumb. I feel the glove would be better with a half-fingered thumb, but it is just my opinion. These gloves have minimal padding in the palm area which might be a turn-off to some, but hasn't been a problem for me. Overall, these gloves work fine. I got them on sale, so they are a good value for me, and overall, I'd say they are good, but not great.

Anna Cortez's Juicy Sampler Plate

Anacortes Community Forest Lands or ACFL is one of my favorite places to ride. Divided into 3 sections you can buy maps at many places within the city. Years back Little Cranberry Lake was a staple ride. Heart Lake inbetween, and Whistle Lake a destination for the heartier riders who don't mi ... Read More »

Durango Weekend: Farmington, Durango, Cortez...Epic Downhill to Epic Fail

Met four of my friends in Farmington on Friday to check out "whoops" prior to heading into Durango. Put in a quick 12 mile loop after the 8 hour drive. Nice high desert single track trails. Worth checking out if you are in the area. After making the short drive into Durango and checking into o ... Read More »

Cortez Riding In February?

I have a buddy moving to Cortez at the beginning of the year, and I'm planing on visiting him the first week of February. I know Cortez sits at 6000 feet, so I'm wondering, what's the snow fall like, and are there enough trails open to get some good rides in? I got a chance to ride Phil's World ... Read More »
