Buffalo Ostro Gloves - Black
Customer Product Reviews
Good for the price
Comfortable. Nice temperature for all but winter riding, although I run pretty hot so some people might find them cooler than I did. Sizing was spot on, giving a good fit and being easy to take on and off. The cuff is a nice length for me, but the velcro strap is thin and as a result it doesn't close at quite the right angle/ tightness. The first time I wore them in the rain my hands were covered in dye, but it washed off easily enough.
Great for summer
I've worn these gloves quite a lot since I started riding again this year. Although they aren't really suited for the milder weather at the moment, I know they will be perfect for riding with in the summer. Great quality, they fit really well. Awesome service from SBS as usual!
Buffalo value as always
Great gloves, nice feel on the levers, good protection and nicely lined. XL fit me well, I would say size up if in doubt as they are snug on fit. For the price they are excellent and I have a Buffalo Jacket and trousers as well that have all been first class. These gloves are suitable for spring to Autumn I think, with the perforated leather. I have Buffalo winter gloves for chilly days. If there is any criticism its that the wrist fastening could be tighter and I can just feel the knuckle armour a little despite the padding and lining. I ordered some more expensive Weise gloves at the same time which were not as well made and had loose stitching. As always SBS are simply superb on returns and refunds.
Quality Summer gloves
Lightweight and comfortable. No bulky inner seam to irritate fingertips. Perforated fingers actually allow air to circulate. Plenty of feel so you get a sense of what's going on through the bars. Unlikely to stand up to a high-speed slide but for the price offers decent protection around town.
Cool, comfortable and easy to get on and off
As my first pair of short cuff gloves, these were a great choice and so far haven't failed in feeling sturdy, yet still are easy to move around and use my motorcycle's controls. The touch screen compatibility was perhaps slightly lacking, as it is only the thumbs, but still worked fine.
I bought these as summer riding gloves and they have proved excellent. I had to send the first pair back as they were too small, but quickly received a replacement. I thought that these were also too tight especially between the fingers, and nearly sent the back, but I kept them for a week and tried them a couple of times and they softened up and moulded themselves to my hands. So if you buy a pair, just because they are uncomfortable first time on, persevere and wear them for a wee while and they will bed in. Thanks Sportsbikeshop.
