BMW Airflow Gloves

I absolutely love my BMW airflow gloves. They keep my hands cool without compromising protection. I've been very happy with them. If you have 70 F temperatures and below during summer, the Held "Steve" gloves aren't a bad option either. They do have a lot of padding on the tops of the hands, but are a nice mid temp glove.

Agree.
Great glove, and I live in the tropics, and wear mine almost every day.

Subscribe. Top class sensitivity/feedback and noticeable "refreshment" even in very hot climates. Not cheap, but BMW stuff rarely is - both in price and in quality.

I'd settle for nothing less than the summer weight gloves by Held. Of course, a bit pricier that most other summer gloves, but Held products are better contructed and offer much better protection others. If I recall, there is a vendor on this board that offers a discount for Held gloves. I'll see if I can locate the address.

Thanks for all the feedback!!

One more question the held gloves do they run a little small like most of the motorcycle gloves I have tried on?

Thanks in advance
