They aren't all "period-correct" and stuff, but I like my Icon sub-gloves. Anything that offers protection while keeping your
hands relatively cool is good in my book. Reasonably priced is an important feature to me as well!

Buy whatever gloves you like that fit well, and will hold up in a fall. Fuck fashion.

I was looking for gloves with knuckle armor, that didn't look like I was suiting up in an exo-skelaton to fight hand-to-hand against robot-aliens.

Add to that the fact that I have long skinny fingers, and HATE wearing gloves because they're too bulky, and I got these:

I've got two pairs of deerskin gloves that I got at a swap meet. One is insulated, one not. Both have wrist and knuckle padding. They patina well over time.

I get not knowing, but I can't for the life of me understand not trying. It's only metal it can be fixed. Man up and risk a mistake in exchange for a lesson.

+10 same thing I ride with...
That's what I used to use. Now I use them for work gloves. Gotta love elk-hide/deerskin for the flexibility even after they have been wet.
