Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made I have had these gloves for three months now and have worn and washed them several times. They continue to look new and are very comfortable. Stitching is top quality, as is the leather.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic feel - Order small Once you dial in your size, these gloves feel amazing. Supple, comfy, breathe well. I tried out several brands of fingerless gloves, which can be hard to fit correctly because they have to be snug around your fingers and not bunch up but also not pinch. I first bought them large, which felt right when I tried them out in-store but I found that when riding they stretch out a bit and bunch up. The medium size which felt too small in store ended up being perfect after a few rides. Kind of like buying nice leather shoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely retro look gloves I wore crochet mitts back in the day and have always had a soft spot for them. When I saw these I had to have a pair. I was on the lookout for new mitts anyway as I was finding my other pairs (not Rapha) uncomfortable on longer rides. No such problems with these, the fit is great and the padding works well for me. I bought them in white which is not the most ideal colour but if given the choice I'll always avoid darker colours. I'd like to see more colour options for next year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit, comfortable in warm weather First felt a bit small, but then we got used to each other and they are great. I wear them daily, love the retro look. Metal logo is a great detail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from comfort! I used to own the leather ones which were great to but were more rigid than these. these are very comfy and the lether on the palm is of great quality! Very soft leather. I think they will age better than the full leather ones (which I was able to use for 3 years before they broke).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A modern twist on an old classic. Beautifully made and great performance. Padding in all the right places, the velcro closures work well and the metallic "Rapha" logos are a nice touch. Such a nice product, Bit more expensive that you could get from other producers but will they last so long? My last pair lasted two years of hard use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit, comfort and grip I ride with them for 2 weeks, road and gravel, so far very satisfied. Pleasant materials, seems to last. I have narrow hand, between S and M, but long. Chose M size and fits ok.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Back of the net! Buttery soft leather. Padding where you need it. Could do with a tab to assist in removal of the gloves. The string-backs just give you a bit of extra purchase. Alan would approve.

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.
