Our HiLine Leather Glove uses the best leather Mechanix could find for riding bikes. With Mechanix's experience in making all types of gloves, they knew just what to do when we wanted to make a more durable, still supple riding glove.
With a fashion form-fitting wrist strap to firmly place the glove on the hand, and a durable protection pad on the palm, the leather we used for this glove will form to your hand over time.
I hit some high winds and some blowing snow on Friday. These kept my hands warm and the padding kept my grips comfortable.
The fit and finish of these gloves is incredible! Really comfortable for all day riding.
These gloves are so awesome, I ordered a backup pair in case Kitsbow stops making them. They are perfect for all but the coldest days. Comfortable and good grip texture.
Materials and construction of this glove are top notch. Sadly they are a VERY awkward fit for my hands. For reference FOX, Pearl Izumi and Giro brand gloves (size XL) fit my hand perfectly. According to Kitsbow measurements I was in between L and XL. I opted for size L. Then it got weird... The three middle fingers are very long to where there is excess material at the finger tips. The pinky and thumb were way too short. This glove is so disproportionate compared to many other brands that they seem irregular. I like the construction of this glove enough that I will try to stretch the thumb and pinky fingers and just live with the length of the three middle ones. I wish these gloves fit as good as the Kitsbow shirts as it would have been the last glove I ever buy. I checked runs too small as there was not an option for irregular fit.
Been wearing the HiLine glove for a bit now, and I can say that they're the most comfortable bike gloves I've used to date. Took a reasonable spill in a wonderful piece of granite and nay a scuff on the palm
