Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected Great fit and soft supple leather. My only hesitation is that the Rapha logo is proud of the fabric as it is made out of metal. Comfortable and look far better than any mesh back gloves I've ever owned.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the retro styling Had the white leather fingerless Rapha gloves prieviously, and whilst looked lovely to begin with they quickly became dirty. These are more comfortable having a bit more give in the crochet side, and very soft leather on the palms and don't show the dirt which is a bonus

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love the mitts. rode with this mitt twice on a hot humid condition, and performed very well. the knitted top is very well made and the leather pads are very nice. only little annoyance would be this: can't really wipe face with the leather pad on either thumb pad during hot rides. but i got used to wiping the leather material to the sweat, so just have to adjust.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfiest gloves ever Rapha gloves can be a bit hit and miss (e.g. the lovely leather gloves I got last year and which I wore only once because they were so uncomfortable around the knuckles), so I was pleasantly surprised just how supremely comfortable these were. I've had a lot of cycling gloves, and these are by far the comfiest of them all. Liking them so much that I went and ordered another pair as spares.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, soft and very comfortable. Only worn these 3 or four times since I had them and although very nice to wear I'm anxious to see how they are after a few washes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super style and performance Bought and worn. Love these, really comfortable and no anoying seams to rub like some of raphas previous glove attempts. Easy to get on and off breath well and of course they look cool . Highly recomend however not for the really hot days

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best gloves ever! I love the comfort and overall feel of these gloves. Very good support and they really help avoid tired hands on longer rides. I also love the style and color - real classic gloves. They soften and somewhat mold to your hands and I love that you can adjust the wrist strap as needed.

These gloves seem VERY snug. Do I need to "wear" them in or should I order the next size up? I went by the size chart.

Asked by: Himatt68
If the gloves feel too tight and uncomfortable then please feel free to exchange these for a size up.

Do you need to apply a conditioning cream to the leather palms after you wash the gloves?

Asked by: RaphaCust
Hi, applying a cream onto leather when new will help maintain the life span and suppleness of the leather. The cream gives the leather a natural stain and water repellent finish, so do be prepared for a slight change in colour in light coloured gloves. Most importantly - If your gloves get wet, allow them to dry naturally at room temperature and away from any external heat source, such as radiators, tumble dryers, hair dryers or direct sun light. Direct heat can dehydrate and crack the leather!

If one is between sizes as I am (9" around the knuckles) do you recommend sizing up or down?

Asked by: MrEv
You should go a size up in these circumstances. If the garment does not meet your specifications then you can return these under the 90 day returns procedure.
