    Just curious...have you used any leather conditioner on the gloves during the time you've owned them? Just wondering if that might help offset the fading effects of the sun.
    Thanks!

    I have a set of deer skin gloves I've been wearing for ten years. I paid around $30 for them at an independent Harley dealer in Fairbanks; they have no brand markings. Except for some fading and scuffing they are still as good as new. No doubt the Lee Parks gloves appear better designed and constructed, but deer skin seems to be inherently more durable than cow hide.

    I've been wearing deer skin gloves I bought at Tractor Supply for the last two years. Deer hide can get wet and stays flexible unlike cowhide. I soaked mine 2x and wore them till they dried while riding, they form fitted to my fingers. Can't do that with cowhide. I've got some high dollar riding gloves, the 22.00 I spent on the deer skin gloves have kept my other gloves stored.

    I feel the same about my elk skin Ropers...soft, tough and all day comfortable. I also completely wetted them the first time of use...they formed to my hands and are pretty much the only gloves I wear when street riding now.

    The ropers are very nice gloves.

    I have a couple of riding buddies that swear by them and have worn them for years. When I was finally due for some new gloves, decided to give them a try. Wow, now I know why my buddies loved their Ropers!

    Thanks Moshe
    I like gloves with armor so I'm looking forward to your review on the Sumo Lee Parks.
