Aerostich gloves

Not a normal place for me to post, bare with me

After looking long and hard for a quality winter glove that wasnt so thick i couldnt feel anything, I went to my local BMW dealer (seems they have a lot of light and warm clothes lol) they pointed me toward Aerostich.......ran in to a few guys in the parking lot on the way out, they were all wearing 1 and 2 piece suits maybe by these guys, all with great things to say. So i went home and did a bunch of reading and figured for $130 it was worth a try, since I've already bought 4-5 pairs of $100 gloves over the years lol

I ordered the Aerostich Insulated Elkskin Gauntlet Gloves, they showed up on Friday and put some miles on them this weekend. I F-ing love them, when we took off this morning it was 37* and not once did my hand get cold. They're thin enough where I didn't have an issue with controls, helmet buckle or zippers and still more than warm enough! I'm couldn't be happier for the money

I'm not into heated grip or gloves and never had them, don't want them

If anyone is interested in taking a look, here you go:

Aerostitch has been around quite a while now. They make a quality product in all of their clothes line from what everyone says. Their one piece suits are legendary among the long distance crowd and those die hard riders who try to ride more or less year round, also they're very popular with the BMW crowd, as you already had noticed. Thanks for the review of the gloves. I also have been looking for some gloves good for 40-50 degree weather but aren't too bulky. I can't stand to be 'bound-up' with any article of clothing. I'll check out those Aerostitch gloves.

I started out with nothin' ... and I've still got most of it left.

These things are great.......and I don't say that about "clothing" to often LOL but for the money I don't see them being beat. Makes cold weather riding enjoyable

It says to Order 1 - 1 sizes larger than non-insulated version to ensure proper fit. Did you do that? Did you go with just an inch bigger or 1 1/2?
Thanks

I ordered one size bigger......my summer gloves are XL so I ordered XXL

They were a little snug at first but broke in and are now a perfect fit

I'm not one to usually put a little of time/money into "clothing" but these suckers were honestly worth every damn penny.
