Joe Rocket Fan
In ten years of riding, I've bought (2) Joe Rocket (JR) jackets, a ballistic touring and the Phoenix mesh, have gone through (3) pairs of Phoenix gloves, and have had the same pair of cold weather gloves for 8 years (which include a squeegee on the back of each thumb to clean your visor in wet weather, brilliant!) and they've just gotten two old to keep me warm when I ride to work from 35-45 degrees mornings in the winter. I ordered these gloves as a replacement for about the same price point and I'm a bit disappointed. The size runs a bit small as the bend of the fingers restricts the operation of the clutch and front brake a bit, and I'm hoping they loosen up with break in. Missing with this model are the extra goodies in design that I'm used to seeing from JR. I expected better protection and little bonuses like the squeegee for wet weather. The gauntlet is huge, as expected for cold-weather gloves, but there's no means to close off the gauntlet around the forearm. There's a velcro strap around the wrist, but that's the wrist. There is little protection for the palms and none for the knuckles and back of the hands as I've come to expect with most motorcycle gloves. I haven't worn them below 45 degrees yet, but they've been warm so far in short trips around town. I'll be curious to see how they fare in my 25 minute ride to work at 6:30 am at 50 mph when it's 35 degrees out . I'd have bought the same make and model of my old JR cold-weather gloves without hesitation, though JR doesn't seem to make them anymore. I wouldn't spend another $50 on these without looking for something better when it comes time to replace them.
