My Gloves are getting wore out

How long do you guys usually keep a set of gloves before they are worn out?
I have a pair that I've been using for about 1 year or less. I just noticed that I'm getting worn spots (some holes) in the left hand palm.
I thought I'd be able to get more than a year in the gloves for the price I paid for ém. :eh:

Although, I do ride with them almost every day and use them for trackdays too.

How long to a pair of gloves last you?

Usually last about that long if you ride alot. Leather dries out and cracks if you dont use some type of conditioner on it. Most people dont take the time to apply it on riding gloves.

I suppose the glove issue depends on the kinda of gloves. I've had a couple pair of leather roadrace gloves that lasted about 2 years, but one pair went to after5 months, but that was because the bike was all the transportation i had during the rainy texas "winter."
If you have leather palms on your gloves try some leather conditioner starting when they are new. This will add some longevity.

Check and see if they are still under warranty. I had some cheap JR gloves that ripped at one seam, they sent me a new pair about a week later. The low end JR gloves are a joke.
