Held Rodney Leather Glove - Natural
Customer Product Reviews
Light and airy
These unlined goat and kangaroo skin gloves are sized accurately and have allowed great ventilation during the 2018 heat wave. Easy to pull sweaty hands when the temp increases. The dye does leech a small bit when damp with sweat. Highly recommended.
A nice addition for retro riders
When looking for a more retro styled glove I came across these Rodney gloves online and have been very pleased with them so far. I've used many other models of Held gloves in the past (the air n dry are a particularly good touring choice) and the fit and finish of these lives up to the brand's reputation, nice and soft with some good technical touches. These should definitely be a contender for those looking for comfy summer gloves.
Excellent summer glove
I looked at several different incarnations of a summer glove and Held Rodney ticked all the boxes. After doing a 3000 mile Europe tour that involved riding in >25 deg C heat a lot of the time (40+ in Paris!) I can say they were brilliant.
I spent a good deal of time looking for a glove that offered adequate protection without the Robocop look. These guys have a one piece kangaroo hide palm with some sliders so the chances are good that they'll hold up to a bit of sliding. Dexterity and comfort are top notch and there is plenty of ventilation to keep the sweaty hands at bay. Brilliant glove, just don't get them wet unless you have 100 years spare to allow them to dry.
Perfect summer glove
This is my second summer time glove and I am absolutely satisfied with it. My previous glove was the Weise Airflow Glove, which I used for 2 seasons. They were good, but this glove is a different level. The quality is outstanding. All details the stitching the visor wiper all very high quality. The glove is thin, so you can get things out easy from your pocket or from your valet. The glove is very well ventilated, although there I have not wore them in super warm weather yet. So far I am very satisfied.
