Gloves that DO NOT BLEED in the RAIN?

Please post information regarding gloves you have worn in the rain, and whether or not they bleed -- might save someone the heartache.

My first pair of gloves were red Icon gloves. At the moment, I cannot remember the model. I was caught in the rain one day, and the gloves bled all over my khaki pants.

I've worn my red Icons and my black Alpinestars SMX gloves in the ran on several occassions and have never experienced bleeding. I forget the model of my Icons but I can check later. Both were short cuff gloves.

you cant go wrong with any of the higher end alpinestars gloves from GPX to GP-PRO, IMO they are the best!

all gloves will bleed a little.

If they strained the gloves like pants, the color wouldnt be as strong.



After what RacerX mentioned, put a leather conditioner on the gloves and work them out.

Inexpensive gloves bleed. Good ones do not. Simple as that.
