    Right now I just wear leather gloves, insulated if needed. I am planning to get some better riding gloves with knuckle and finger guards, but no store in the area sells them and I'm apprehensive about ordering them on line without trying them on.

    Revzilla is great with returns. I've returned boots and pants and only had to check the "too large" or "too small" box on the return form, which I think they use to help tune their sizing recommendations. Return shipping is on you, but it's usually pretty cheap.

    As for gloves, I was wearing Cortech DX when I dumped it in December, no knuckle protection because I figured if I'm going down, I'm putting palm down first. Nope, ate through the top and left a nice little scar on the top of my hand. Switched to Rev'It Striker 3 this spring, great knuckle/top protection, but too damn hot for summer use. Currently using Tour Master Airflow gloves, minimal knuckle/top protection but slightly more than the Cortech.

    I chose the Fox Bomber S because it fit like a... umm... Glove. Lol

    I tried several types that came recommended by vloggers, reviewers, etc and none of them fit me quite right.

    I just use mechanix mpact gloves. Not the best protection but it’s better than garden glove specials or something from the Home Depot bargain bin

    I have two pairs (in the event that one pair gets wet or sweaty) - white, for visibility when giving hand signals (Sandue knows what I mean)

    I do have another pair of longer waterproof "robo-cop" gloves, but frankly, haven't needed them .....

    I just bought a two-pack of some really nice, soft but structurally sound, leather gloves in Sams Club. I have "somewhat" larger hands so, fitting gloves is often difficult. I don't even classify my hands as being all that big. I've seen and shook hands that were larger than mine. But, often, when I try on gloves, no matter what store, no matter what type, the "XL" are often too tight for non-restrictive movement, as in controlling motorcycle hand operations, i.e. clutch, brake, throttle etc. and yet still feel comfortable and unrestrained.

    But, these XL I tried on at Sams Club in Bullhead city AZ, fit very, very nicely and, they'll get even better with a bit of break-in. PLUS, they're not the traditional BLACK. I'm so tired of BLACK.

    With the majority here leaning towards road type gloves, I ordered Alpinestar short cuffed gloves. Road rash is the worst. I'm not like Chuck Norris. I won't be doing a karate roll up to my feet. I will be putting my hands out if I wash the front on pavement.
    I chose alpinestar based on how amazingly happy I am with my Alpinestar A10 mx chest protector. I figure I'll carry my mx gloves when I switch to dirt
    I very much appreciate all your opinions
