I live in Southeast and the sun is relentless. I have a pair of thick leather gauntlets for cool weather riding that just don't cut it for summer riding. I heard about Churchill gloves from an HD Forum and decided to give them a try.
They definitely let the air in on the ride and keep my hands from burning when I touch the controls and protect them from the sun!
I had to go to Churchill's site to get size measurements, but even then they are a little large in the fingers (not as form fitting as I would like - and are a little short on the fingers (I have big palms and long fingers and have always had trouble finding gloves that fit right). If I had gone larger, I think the gloves would be too loose to operate the controls safely - and smaller would be too small.
The sewing looks to be good quality and the leather is soft and supple.
All in all, they serve the purpose for which I bought them and only time will tell if they last for years (like the review I used claimed).
These gloves are nothing more or less than the description says. The entire back is perforated and they're thin so cold weather usage is out. They are very short, barely covers my wrist bone. Very comfortable and was surprised as to how soft they were. Not to mention they smell great out of the box. I can't imagine them being very good for protection but for the money you can't beat them.
Love everything about these gloves: really soft leather, comfortable, they look awesome, made in the U.S., ventilated for summer riding. I've had these two seasons now, wear them every time I get on the bike, used them on long road trips. Only pair I wear. Would buy these again and again
I bought these gloves because my gauntlet style gloves were just too hot for Summer riding. The fit was a bit tight at first, but they have stretched enough now to fit comfortably. Air flow is good, which I didn't really notice how much air flows until a morning ride to work in 60* weather. My hands got a little chilly!
