661 SX-1 Gloves '06

Not a product review yet, but I just ordered 2 pair from JensonUSA for $14 each, down from a list price of $37.

http://www.jensonusa.com/store/produ...+Glove+06.aspx

I'll do a review when I receive them, or if anyone has a pair, I'd like to hear your opinions.

Thanks.

What's the sizing like?

e.g.: what size did you get, and how big are your hands?

I ordered Large, and usually wear large gloves from Fox, Mechanix, etc.

I'll do a comparison once I receive them next week.

I actually ordered some yesterday. I ordered extra large because I'm 6'6", and so, I figured, the bigger the better.

Well, the large are not large in my opinion. These gloves are cut really small, so I have to return them for XL, or just sell them if I can't return them (or it cost too much to return).

My hand measures 4" at the widest spot (just below little finger to just above thumb) and measures 7 1/4" from wrist to top of longest finger.

The gloves look pretty well-made, with a lot of padding, and webbing on the backs of the hand and fingers for ventilation. The palms are padded, and the first 2 fingertips are coated with a plastic-like substance for easier "stiction" on items.

If I can't return them, they will end up here for sale.

Can't seem to edit my own post.

Anyway, Jenson is sending me an XL in place of the back-ordered pair, and gave me a RMA number to send back and replace this pair.

this may be a weird Q ... but why would a unicyclist need gloves?

or, did you just buy them for other biking?

I use mine when i'm riding my coker and holding onto the handles. It makes me feel unstoppable at best. Well that's just me i guess.

they protect your hands when/if you fall. And sometimes my hands get blisters when I am doing the little street stuff I can do so I wear them then.

to prevent blisters from the friction and such, and to keep your hands from getting hurt when you UPD and stuff.
