Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sturdy palms I've used these mitts on about 10 rides over the past two months (strangely warm Jan/Feb, global what?). I have median nerve issues and constantly look for ways to relieve palm/wrist pain so I can continue cycling. These mitts are the best I've found for reducing median nerve pain. The palm is tough leather backed with sturdy material. It's hard to call it padding as it's not soft or squishy. It seems to diffuse impact rather than absorb it, so you maintain better feel and control of the road. What sets these mitts apart for me is the palm is broadly supported, not marked by gel nubs like most other cycling gloves. There's just enough tackiness to hold but not stick to the bars. The only negative is a lack of attachments to pull them off. However I've found slipping one or two fingers from the opposite hand inside the palm of the other glove allows me to slip/push the mitt off rather than pull it off like other gloves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No brainer Don't ponder - just buy them. Look good, compliments any kit and are very comfortable. The padding is perfect. What's not to like...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made with full palm padding At this point I've only had these mitts a short time and have ridden about 80 miles in hot weather. They are nicely finished and I'm please with the overall plush feel on the full palm padding. My hand measure 8..5 inches so I ordered medium. They fit tight so if your hand measures much bigger they might be too snug.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have! Decided to treat myself to the classic mitts. Glad I did, they are great fitting and feel very comfortable. While they are the most I have spent on gloves they make the world of difference when on longer rides.

Hi, I measure small for knuckles and large for hand length (slender lady hands) what size is best for me? 

Asked by: Rutherford
Hi, this is difficult due to the difference in your hand measurements but we recommend you try a medium. As always we do have a free 90 day returns policy if needed.

Classic mitts can be machine washed? Never heard of machine washing leather. How is that possible? Doesn't that dry out the leather? What other leather care tips do you have to keep the mitts soft and supple. Thanks.

Asked by: jeffbeckfan
Hi, these mitts can be machine washed. It is important not to wring them out afterwards and or dry them in direct sunlight. We do sell a Leather Glove Balm which can be applied to the pad to keep this supple.

compared to GTs, is the padding in classic mitts as dense and cover the same hand area?

Asked by: jeffbeckfan
Hi, the exact distribution of the padding is slightly different on the gloves due to different materials. However, the padding is as dense and covers the same hand area on the Classic Mitts.

Are the "sweat pads" the same on both hands?
