Every pair of full-fingered gloves I’ve owned seems to wear out pre-maturely in the same way: a hole forms at the tip of the index finger, then rapidly grows. I’ve done this to several pairs of Fox Dirt Paws and a pair of REI gloves. Its kind of annoying as the rest of the glove is still in good condition and only a few months old.
Maybe I expect too much from my gloves, but I would have thought they’d last a little longer before getting holes in them. It seems to me that this problem could very easily be fixed by making the fingertips completely out of leather or synthetic leather as its always the lighter fabric around the fingertips which tears first. Does anyone know of full-fingered cycling gloves like this? Or other ones which don’t wear out really quickly?
I suppose I could try getting the next size up in gloves, though they would probably be less comfortable to wear… Or maybe my hole-ripping fingers suffer from some kind of odd digital geometry.
