Designed for under-cuff use and constructed from leather, the KLIM Quest Short gloves offer all the desired detail-oriented and high quality features we’ve come to expect. Starting with the hard knuckle protection (made from Poron XRD protective foam) on top of an under arm palm slide pad. Fitting true to size, the gloves are fully waterproof with GORE-TEX, windproof and breathable giving ample comfort in a wide range of temperatures. Moreover, they seem to revel in top touch sensitivity for control with GORE-TEX grip and come complete with 3M Scotchlite reflective detailing.
Further features erring on the considerate side include a moisture wicking liner material stitched into the glove to prevent it unfurling on the outside upon removal. When your hands are damp, feeding the liner back inside the glove is the height of annoyance. As well, there’s a Velcro cuff closure and a well-situated entry assist loop. As three season riding gloves go, they do the job amply. The finger-hugging houses do exactly what they claim: ensure optimal hand-to-bike dexterity while riding on the most lively of roads. With average sized hands and skinny fingers, the size Small fit like Cinderella’s slipper.
