Purchase: I bought these from SmartPak for $33. I added them to my order as an "impulse" buy. My old SSG gloves were a bit tired, and I'd had Roeckl's before and liked them.
Likes: I like the grippy spots, as the grip seems better than regular gloves.
Dislikes: Grippy "dots" were peeling off of the rein fingers after two rides on my turbo mare. They do not seem to fit as well as my old Roeckls. I have hard to fit hands- larger but with long fingers. SSG's fit OK, but my old Roeckls fit both issues REALLY well. These just aren't as impressive as I had expected.
Quality: These gloves have grippy patches on them that are supposed to provide better grip without losing sensitivity. These patches are not well attached, at least not for riding a strong horse. Otherwise they are well made. Stitching is tight and even. Fabric is comfy and breathable. As mentioned above, the fit is not as good as my other Roeckl gloves.
Summary: Nice, but certainly not my favorites. I bought them b/c previous Roeckl's fit my hand well and were well made. The grippies are coming off of these after a few months and the fit is not as good as my old pair. Next time, I'll buy another pair of SSG All-Weather gloves. Less expensive with better grip that doesn't wear off!
Usefulness Rating: 2.5 out of 5.
