I have used these gloves for two years now and find them excellent. They are thin enough to do everything, from tightening the girth, altering stirrup leathers etc. In both very hot, and wet weather they make it possible to keep a grip on the reins and in hot weather save fingers from blisters. I have used the same two pairs for two years and am only just thinking about replacing one pair, I ride four or five times a week.
these gloves are thin enough to wear whilst doing up buckles ,and pretty warm as long as it's dry. however when it rained they were soaked through in seconds and did not dry out anything like as quickly as as - advertised. I think they were expensive for what they are.
