Ok, I am getting serious about buying gloves. Do any of the Houston dealers stock Held gloves? It would be best to try on various choices before spending the big dollars. More of my A-stars fell apart last Saturday.

Not that I know of. However, their sizing chart is very accurate.

I got Icon Justice Touchscreen so I can use them with my iphone... Pretty good so far! They also have more knuckle protection but are as comfortable as the Pursuits, IMHO...

I recently purchased some Knox Handroids and they fit and feel good. I still have some Held Phantom gloves, but I don't wear them anymore. I like the feel of the Handroids better.

I noticed you said you use glove liners. My opinion with that is if the liner fit well inside, then you are wearing gloves that are too larger for you. Or... if those glove truly fit well, the liners will be compressed to a point of cutting off blood circulation and defeating their purpose. If they are fleece liners, they work by trapping air inbetween the glove and your skin. That can't happen if your gloves are already snug fitting, which they should be. You'd be better off buying different gloves for different weather conditions.

Whatever gloves you get, make sure they fit well and are comfortable. All the protection in the world aren't worth squad if they are a pain to wear and a hinderance to proper controls of the main bike functions.

I've has good results with the Icon Pursuit gloves.
They're well made, extremely comfortable and breathe very well.
Mine have seen 1 season and a half of riding time and are still holding up well.
