I currently wear Teknic Speedstars and like them. I have had Held gloves in the past. Although they were comfortable, I had problems with the stitching coming apart.

Helds are okay. The stitching on the fingers is external which is a deal killer in my book. Same with Alpinestars.

I got a pair of Held's from a buddy of mine on HSN later last year super cheap, they have been absolutely awesome and the only gloves I'll get again. They are definitely pricey, but well worth it if you ask me.

I believe the model I have is discontinued, but this is the closest model I could find. Funny thing, the name of the glove is the Held Steve. :icon_bigg

The high end HELDS (Akira & Phantom) have both internal and external stiching. The basic glove - including the fingers are assembled with internal stitching - the doublers - such as in the palm, and on the inside of the fingers are attached with external stitching. All gloves I have ever seen have the doublers attached with stitching that is exposed - doesn't seem there is any other way to do it. If that were to fail, then the fingers - etc. are still in tact with internal stitching.
