Mens 6000 Winter Series Mustang I Gloves
ITEM CODE: PG32143
| These are nice gloves. Not great but good, especially for the price. First the good. The size seemed spot on and the finish is excellent. The palm grip is very good. No slipping. Very comfortable and not very bulky. Easy to put on and take off.
Now the bad. With the materials they use (nylon shell with 100g thinsulate), they are not going to be all that warm and it is very noticeable on the highway in cold weather. These are not really any warmer than some inexpensive ski gloves but certainly a little less bulky. Below about 45 degrees, you start feeling the cold in only a few minutes of riding. I was expecting them to be warmer based on other reviews I had seen but I couldn't find anywhere what weight of thinsulate they used before I ordered them. Olympia would not return my email. The insulation in the long gauntlets seems heavier than the glove itself which is kind of a waste since that is all just covering your jacket sleeve. It would be better if they put that insulation that's in the gauntlet into the back of the hand and fingers. But I guess they were trying to limit the bulk which they certainly did. The "windproof" liner doesn't seem to work very well. Liners underneath do help but that would be the case with any glove. I also noticed that it does take some effort to spread your thumb due to the cut being just a bit short between the thumb and first finger.
So for the price, I'd say this is about as good as your going to get. If you need something warmer, it'll cost you.
