    I have these gloves, had them for two years, best glove I have ever worn. Mine did the same deal it's just part of the breaking in of the glove. Don't worry about it
    Enjoy them they are great

    Same here, best gloves I have ever had, and they did the same thing.


    OR, you can ask our resident idi..Expert, on all things gloves. He will help you out with all sorts of expert knowledge. Or not. Ask him about helmets too. He started another thread about his gloves recently.

    We recently issued them here as well - they are pretty decent gloves - no complaints. As with any leather glove they took a little while to properly break in, but afterwards I am quite happy with them.

    That said, I totally didn't take them home, tie knots with them, and destroy them. If I did, I would have started a thread about it, and slagged everyone who tried to help me.

    :)

    You know, on those sub-zero nights, gloves with pockets to hold those handwarmer packets might be rather welcome....
    Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

    You can get the same glove (if not better & cheaper) by buying the ProTech8. Hands down best glove on the market...IMHO
