Re: gloves (ccolwell)
another vote here for Held Galaxy gloves. Regarding the earlier comment about Joe Rocket gloves, I can personally share my feedback on them - last year I lowsided going through a turn at roughly 100mph. I was wearing a Vanson suit, Oxtar boots, Arai Helmet and Joe Rocket gloves. When I was done sliding (a long way), the only damage I sustained was on my hands. The suit, boots and helmet completely protected me but the gloves looked liked they went through a shredder. My hands had quite a bit of cuts and abrasions on them. I was incredibly disappointed at how easily the leather shredded. I learned to never go "cheap" again on anything that's gonna protect my body in a crash.
