    Gloves in 2009 gift guide, December ON - looking for the brand

    It must have been in the December issue of the ON magazine. It was some gift guide anyways. They presented gloves, and I forgot the brand. They are supposedly designed by a neurologist and superior when it comes to handling vibrations and the effects of pressure on the hands.
    If you still have this issue, would you be so kind to look up the brand and let me know.
    Should someone actually own these gloves, could you share your experiences?
    Thanks a bunch

    I bought them at the Rally with a money-back guarantee. Used them from Gray to Scottsdale, AZ, and returned them - no good for me!

    Qwi

    I also bought a pair at the National and should have sent them back. They are ok but I don't really feel any relief like they say and they are not very comfortable to wear. Feels like you have a wad of wet paper towels stuffed in your gloves. I alway go back to my almost worn out BMW vented gloves.

    Here's another opinion..

    I have a pair and like them a lot...They are extremely well made and well thought out. I've also dealt with customer service there (the owner) and he was extremely helpful and went out of his way to make sure my gloves were sized right.. I have a tendon problem with my left hand, below the middle finger which at times makes it painful to squeeze the shift lever... The gloves seem to be padded in the right place, so for me they work and alleviate some pain..

    The company has a no questions asked policy for return so if you think they might help, give it a shot..

    I've always gotten numb hands while riding and bought these for a trip that I just went on. You get used to the feeling of the padding and I must say that they worked great for me. They do say that they are not for everybody but I am glad that I made the purchase.
