Review: Candygrind The CG

I promised I'd do this, so here it is.

Wow, they gloves are pure steez ... seriously, look at them:

They even make a Coloradan version for those of you lucky enough to be local to such an awesome state:

But enough about looks, how do they work?

Well, after the first day, I was somewhat disappointed because the fingers started peeling material and wearing off. Ok, just cosmetic, I thought. The leather still seemed to be quality and in good shape. They kept my fingers warm as long as I didn't abuse them and let them soak up water and freeze. I did get some coldness in the fingertips and this is where I thing the Handbag Mitts would beat them as Cr0 recommends.

Overall, after nine days in a row of (ab)use, the leather held up terrifically and broke in nicely and there's not a single stitch blown. I was very surprised. Don't mistake these gloves for true Gore-Tex mountaineering gear like Mountain Hardware. They aren't. But for inbounds riding on just about all weather days, these things work like champs for park gloves. Throw in a liner and you got yourself resort gloves for a season.
