    Hand pain - My new riding gloves

    I have actually been using these for over a year. So far they are the most effective solution for hand pain that I have tried. They are industrial work gloves intended to relieve carpal tunnel symptoms. The good news is they are fairly cheap. The bad news is they are not too stylish, although they also make a fingerless version in black leather and spandex just in case your other ride is a Harley:

    Stylish smilish. Who cares what they look like if they work. Only thing wrong with the gloves in the photo are the gauntlet is too short. Need some length above the wrists for protection in the rain and in a bug shower.

    If you want motorcycle specific gloves try these from Klim. Very comfortable, they have Poron energy dispersing foam, are of proper length, and have a velcro closure.

    They look just fine; a clean, minimalist, design.

    I should have mentioned. The Impacto Carpal Tunnel gloves cost about $30.

    Carpal Tunnel Surgery Was Effective for Me

    I'd like to mention that Carpal Tunnel Surgery is safe and very effective, and can help for other situations where one experiences carpal tunnel pain: for example bicycling, using hand tools, using climbing ropes, sometimes driving a car or truck, etc. Tests are readily and cheaply available to validate the need for surgery on carpal or ulnar tunnels - for satisfying insurance authorizations. If this bothers you in multiple situations, it's probably worth considering the surgery.

    I just bought a pair of those Impacto gloves for $12.50 plus free shipping on eBay. Brand new. Haven't received them yet but hopefully they'll be no surprises. Coming from Nebraska.
