So I stupidly did not send them back! I downsized the fingers, intending to use them as hiking gloves, particularly for heavy bushwaking.
They deteriorated quickly from the work, the stiching unraveling. Then they shrunk in the rain. When I pulled them off, they ripped. And these gloves were supposed to protect your hands from roadracing falls? They were very expensive!
They were not just a product misapplied and abused. They were criminally negligent in size, use, and durability.
I recently read his book on riding, which was just a repeat of everything any motorcyclist already knows ...
So be aware of this profiteer.
How do you really feel?
