Gauntlet glove recommendations?

Hi,

I've been wearing a pair of gloves (Brand? Don't know off hand - not one fo the majors.) that leave my hands black whenever I come across rain. Not only are they not waterproof, the die runs like blood, even after 6+ years of all-weather riding.

So I'm looking for recommendations for new gloves that have some protection, gauntlets, and that won't bleed in the rain. These would be used from late spring into the fall, not winter. (I have a nice pair of Dainese taking care of that season.)

Thanks for the help.

Might take a look at Texas Good. Has a selection of USA made gloves and a variety of leather types.

Thanks for the suggestion. They look like general work gloves rather than motorcycle specific gloves. I'd like gloves with the 'protection' we've come to expect with moto-specific gloves.

I was always happy with my Held Steve gloves, and felt them worth the price. Bought my last ones from http://www.newenough.com

Thanks for the suggestions!

Anyone try the Cortech Latigo gloves? I recall a magazine review of Cortech gloves that was very positive.

I am also looking for gloves with similar criteria. I am considering the Motoport Kevlar gloves - they look pretty ideal.

Okay, summer gloves that are water resistant and don't cost $200? Recommendations?

Which model of waterproof glove? One review of the PDX said it sucked.

Anyone riding with Aerostich rain covers? They look kinda clumsy to me, but maybe it's worth the water protection without buying new gloves?

I have them, and the keep your hands dry even when it's pouring. The downside is there is no dexterity whatsoever. I was riding to VT a couple of years ago in pissing rain when a deer jumped over the guardrail a couple dozen yards in front of me at 45. If it had been any later, I would have nailed it, having no chance at panic braking. So, I would get some good gloves that allow you good reaction time.

I've not had a pair of black gloves yet that doesn't bleed when they get wet. You can wash them a few times with some woolite and it will stop most of it.

I like Dainese and now Rev'it.
A* never seem to fit me correctly.
Held look nice but nowhere to try them on that I've found.
