Gloves Recommendation

Pls recommend a good pair of gloves. I was thinking of the MV Agusta gloves but have not heard of any feedbacks on that gloves.

First priority is comfort, waterproof, washable, etc

Sounds like you're looking for an all weather glove. I can tell you from experience if you're looking for race style gloves to go for the HELD PHANTOM gloves. Best gloves for safety I've ever seen. As far as a washable waterproof glove, I say keep the MV in the garage when it's raining!

Let us know what you pick.

Alpinestar makes good gloves. Great quality.

IMHO....Dont get cheap when it comes to gloves. Pay up for quality & protection.

I have the Held Phantoms, they are great.

But not waterproof. There are Held Akira Tex 2 that are waterproof and similar to the Phantom. Shameless plug: I have a pair for sale in the For Sale section. 1/2 size too small for me.

I haven't seen Held phantoms but for my money Kushitani are the best quality glove...much better than Alpinestars IMO and even the Dainese speed knuckle.

My next gloves WILL NOT have hard plastic or CF knuckle protection.

During my track misshap, I landed on my hand and the knuckle protection dug into my hand (sharp edge) most likely breaking my 5th metacarpel bone in my hand.

I have heard this from others before.
I'm looking at gloves with foam padding for fingers and knuckles.
Hand injuries really suck.

Look for protection first, looks last!

The gloves were Held Akira BTW.
