Time for new gloves, need rec

Hey gang, I haven't been on here much lately with school and all. Santa didn't bring me new gloves so I'm in the market for some new ones. Looking for gauntlet gloves that have the bridged 4th/5th under $150. Recommendations? Umayr (if you're not banned), I tried some gloves on that you had at TWS (Texas World Speedway) when I went down, forgot what they were. Thanks in advance for any input.

FYI... local motohouston alteration peeps can bridge any leather glove you like.

So, don't limit your selection by that. Get your favorite, then consider the bridge.

If you can find them on sale, I recommend Held. As long as I have been riding, I haven't been willing to spend the cash on them. I finally did and couldn't be happier; kicking myself for waiting so long to by a pair.

They aren't cheap, and you may need to up your purchase price, but everyone I know that has bought them get much longer life out of them. I've had to toss countless pairs of 125-150 dollar gloves due to wearing out in various areas.

Although I haven't had mine long enough to judge, I hope my Helds will last as long as friend's Helds. If so, I'm ahead on the money side.

Edit: quick look and found this. If they have my size, I'm going to order another pair.

I have a pair of these and really like them. They have held up well for over a year but I rotate them out with other gloves...

Can't say anything about the the seller, it was just a link I found. Talk to Patrick @ Motorcycles Unlimited, he will steer you in the right direction and can get you whatever you need.

On further research, apparently the gloves I mentioned are no longer available. Sorry, carry on...
