Decent Lobster Gloves

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Decent warmth gloves for general winter use, though not ideal for extreme cold. The lobster gloves themselves have a very tacky grip on them, which can be a little too grippy when cycling. Sometimes it makes it hard to quickly move your hands around on the bars, since the grippy-ness catches on things. Perhaps that will wear off over time.

Liners are separate gloves that can be worn on their own, which is useful. However, the liners are incredibly velcro-loving, and stick tightly to anything with velcro. Which means if you're handling something with velcro then you need to remove these liners. You realize how many things have velcro when you wear these liners. :) Also, the liners when worn with the lobster gloves are a little tight, so they can actually be less warm with the liners.

Move up a size if you always want to wear the liners.

Overall decent gloves, better than some lobster gloves I have used (Louis-Garneau) but not as good as others (SealSkinz and legacy PearlIzumi).
