Guys and Gals - Am trying to source a nice pair of driving gloves to replace current pair. They are getting pretty old and two fingers are split open and the leather is deteriorating on the other side.

I have not been able to find any except the ones in the Moss Motors catalog, which I don't want to order again 'cause these are the (low quality) ones that are now falling apart (admittedly after a few years use.)

I'm really looking for a pair of pull on, vented back (cotton) thin leather palm and finger, like in the attached picture.

Has anyone got a lead on an alternative source for these types of gloves???

thanks in advance...ws

Try AutoSport at http://www.autosportcatalog.com/. They have several style and grades, I have the $40 pair and have given a couple pairs as gifts, seem to be holding up well and are quite comfortable. HTH.

If you have any local motorcycling or performance bicycling shops, they're worth a looksee.

I like the ones sold by BMW under their Lifestyles catalog.

Not cotton back (never liked those personally) but vented and cool. Leather front and back with a fabric between the front and back.

YOu can check them out at most BMW dealers.

I have a pair of golfing gloves which i really like. You can poke some extra holes in them i suppose if you want more ventilation.
