My father asked for a pair of gloves for Christmas, so I gave him a pair of the elk skin ropers. I have three pairs of them and they have been excellent for chopping wood to motorcycling. Excellent fit and protection. My oldest pair is pretty rough now but I bought them in 2008.
I used the chart to get the correct size. When they arrived they seemed a bit too snug. After a few hours a day over a few days, they stretched out and are just right. They seem like they will be awesome gloves.
I bought my elk ropers, in black, for wearing when riding. They’re soft and supple but still robust enough that I can tell they’re still breaking in, so they’ll fit “like a glove” even better over time. Good purchase.
Excellent motorcycle riding gloves, fair price.
