ok so the time has come again
(gloves have lasted 10 months! :roll: )

im looking for full fingered, ultra cheap(ish, ebay styleee?) ultra cool

comfy and lightweight
never really bothered about waterproof so i dont think its a factor here :?

my past gloves were sombrio forensic and jon taylor 661 gloves

like them both
but the 661's got holes at the tips of the fingers
and the sombrios have recently worn through at the finger tip(finger print part not end)
(but i think the 661's held up better for wear apart from that flaw - i had to sew them :lol: )

been looking at 661 raji, 661 comp and 661 401's
but wondering what else is there
as before i have just bought gloves i like the look of etc.

some opinions and what not what be good

generally my gloves wear on the underside of the fingers most if that helps

for summer I have some Dakine Ventilator gloves, which iirc were less than £20 from CRC when I got them last year. Lightweight, minimal, full finger summer gloves.

I wear 661 comps. Comfy, cheapish, hardwearing.
