I know they're not the sexiest name in motorsports apparel, but you should find a pair of TourMaster Roadrace Comp Carbon and try 'em out. My pair are the best gloves I've had for 68 degree and above temps.

The leather is so supple and comfortable when broken in that even though they're less than 70 bucks, you'll make sure and lock 'em up. They've got the long gauntlet style you want.

The Cortech Comp Carbon II should be an updated version of these excellent gloves.

No way a joe blow or alpinestars glove will compete with this glove at this price. YMMV, though

The TourMaster Comp Carbon is perforated between the fingers, which is really nice. Looks like the Cortech examples are as well. The more I look at the Cortech the more I like it. I think I'll get a pair to see if they're even better than my TourMasters.

Large Gericke = Large Held = Large TourMaster has been my experience.

Order the Large Cortech's and see what happens. Ask about teh return policy...

Frankly, I'd look at the Cortech jackets and pants, too. Excellent prices and I've had nothing but good luck with the TourMaster quality.
