Are these ok for track?

I am planing on doing some track days next season, so I can actually get some skills, so I am starting to pick up some gear.

I need a warm pair of gloves for winter anyways but was wondering if these are long enough to wear on the track.

They look good to me. Full leather with strap. Double stitching in the right places, knuckle protection, and they look "cute"

But this is coming from the man who wore "shorties" at the track

Nice gloves but definitely not track worthy. They barely cover the wrist and the stitching, while up to street use, is not something I'd trust for my hands on the track.

Technically you can use those, but like Patrick said, get something better.

I want to say that the CMRA requires wrist protection, I'm unsure of the TD orgs.

I am a newb and learing. Thats why I am asking opnions.

When I was brand new some goober at Stubbs was like yeah anything will do and I eneding up with a pair of Alpine stars that are comfy but have like zero protection. So I am used to riding in really thin gloves so I am having a hard time finding something comfy.

Dont buy it off the Internet then. Go to the Shop Sponsors and try on the glove to make sure it fits and feels comfortable. I made the mistake on getting the "internet" deal and buying Gauntlets that sucked. Learn from my DUMMY mistakes

Thats just an adjustment that takes time, I use a* sp2's...some people don't like them bc in the event of a crash they could possibly slide off easier than others. They are great gloves for the price though.

Once you get adjusted to gloves with actual protection, you will just feel weird riding with anything different.

fit in the finger tip is key for me. when they stretch they get bigger so i wear 1 size small for when they stretch. i would treat it like buying a helmet. gotta try it on, they all fit different. patrick has it all tho. field sheer and a*

Most places dont have a large selectin of womens gloves to try on and the ones that they have are normally curbmonkey gloves. I kinda know what I want but I am just fiddle farting around on really looking and then ordering blindly.

Andrea had me hooked up at Stubbs but now that she is gone...

I love the A* GP series. Started off with the 2006 GP Pro's, and when those wore out 2 years later I bought the GP Techs. I'll go back to the Pro's when these are done though.

Yeah i didnt think so either but the even though I have bigger hands the guys gloves look and feel massive on me when you get into all the armored ones.

Maybe its because I'm not used to it but Andrea was laughing at me in Stubbs bc the guys ones I ordered to try out looked freaking rediclious on me. They fit but looked like I had Hulk hands on.
