Great blister and sun protection, but the palms "pill"…
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $24
Great blister and sun protection, but the palms "pill" quickly.
- Blister protection
- Sun protection
- Fit nicely
- Palm material could be better
- I wish the palms weren't white—show dirt easily
- Don't dry quickly
I like these fingerless gloves a lot, but I'm not sure I will buy another pair when these wear out. They do keep my hands from getting blistered, and the fingerless design allows for good digital dexterity. However, I don't like that the material on the palms is white—after one use they looked pretty grubby, and the suede was "pilling" (like a sweater).
On hot days, it is nice to wear these because you can dip your hands in the water and the fabric retains it so it keeps you cool. Transversely, that same quality is not so great when you'd rather be warm and dry!
I would recommend them if blisters are a big problem for you. They are better in hot weather than cold.
