I bought these gloves on the thought that I live in a very hot town, and sun light would easily ruin my skin (I’m a fair-skinned Asian who’s afraid of being dark-skinned... lol..). I often travel from one place to another with my motorcycle so these gloves help me a lot prevent those evil sun beams penetrates through my skin. These gloves are branded Repsol, a quite popular brand for motorcycle stuffs (I’m surprised that they produce gloves too). Because the only available colors are blue and red, I prefer the red ones. These red gloves work great in covering my hands when riding my motorcycle (I would normally be wearing jackets, helmets, and boots too accompanying these gloves.. lol..). The fabric is pretty thick so it completely prevents the sun beams get into my skin (for best results I would suggest to apply a little skin lotion with SPF before wearing these gloves). Although it’s thick, it’s comfortable to wear, and doesn’t make my hands sweat. There a strap to adjust the hands size (I think it’s designed for women because it doesn’t fit my hubby’s hands). It’s washable too, but I usually wash it manually and not recommended for machine wash. In summary, I’m very excited to have these helpful gloves to help me avoid the sun light on my hands.
