There was a time when I had only two options for perforated motorcycle gloves – either wrap 'em in duct tape until I could afford a new pair, or toss 'em out. Well, technology is a wonderful thing, and we can now buy new perforated gloves from behind our computer!
I'm interested in two things in my motorcycle riding gloves: function and form. In the colder days around December, which can be more than a challenge to riders in the early morning, perforated gloves would provide just enough warmed to keep riding comfortable. But once it gets the normal temperature in tropical Thailand, the same perforated motorcycle gloves are a great option.
I want gloves that will protect me form the elements, bugs, and small flying debris. They should fit snug but not tight. The seams should not rub against me and I prefer a way to cinch the wrist. River Road Swindler Leather Motorcycle Gloves meet all of my desires and, thanks to the perforation, offer the best cooling possible without fingerless gloves, which I personally don't care for. River Road Swindler leather motorcycle gloves are also light, soft, and well made. I like the light padding where your hand contacts the handlebar grips, which lessens the vibration without adding much in build. The strap at the wrist offers just enough structure without stiffness.
If you're looking for a set of warm- or hot-weather motorcycle riding gloves and you want your entire hand and fingers covered, the River Road Swindler leather gloves are a set worth checking out. Motorcycle Gloves
