Gloves? Which ones

Hi everyone. So im in the market for a new pair of gloves and would like to hear some opinions. Ive previously only had cheap gloves which, to be honest, havent been all that. So i would like to splash out and get a nice fancy new pair which dont have to be waterproof as I will probably get a water proof pair as well. I like the new Alpinestar GP Pros, any other recommendations?

I've got a couple that I like.

Dainese Full Metal I like, very comfy. Quite expensive, got mine in a local dainese sale. Still pricey.

Kushitani GPR:
These are pretty nice as well. I wear them about as often as the dainese.

I tend to wear these the most though, for some reason. Joe Rocket GPX 2.0


Mind you, I've been lucky enough to not have crash tested any of these, so can't comment on that.

I like the Lee Parks Design.

Get the ones with the outlast fabric, you can wear them all year.

No fancy carbon fiber to cut you knuckles open when you fall. (Ask Airfuel)

Lee Parks Design -- they are true to the website information. Check'em out. When searching keep in mind trends saturate product development. --and thanks CAG for your previous LPD post.

HELD
good stuff.

A gun is not a weapon. It's a tool, like a butcher's knife, or a harpoon, or an alligator.

I have crashed on the older GPR's they are a dream, fit and function. If money was no object, I would use them. I use them now because I love keeping my hands safe. (They are not cheap)
