While we work out how to get gear to review from the various manufacturers, we’ll share some insights into some of our favorites. Let’s start with gloves. This is the bane of most riders existence since like bikes, there’s no perfect one and no glove that fits like, well, a glove for everyone.

But while these three season gloves from Frank Thomas have seen their share of wear, they’re broken in but not broken down. They aren’t the best made – we had to redo some bad stitching and use fabric glue to make sure it stayed stitched. But they stay pretty cool in hot weather, and we’ve worn them in weather that hit the 50s with no complaints.
