Thumbs down FXRG riding gloves. The "G" stands for Garbage!

I'm so pissed!:
Was oiling up my 10 day old pair of FXRG gloves this morning and noticed that the lining is coming out of them!

I bought a pair of the old style FXRG textile gloves last year. These looked like well built gloves. Until the outside seams came apart.
On the first ride!

I also have the middle weight textile jacket. A nice jacket except for the fact that the snaps for the liner keep falling off. Took it back to a dealer and they had to send it in to get the snaps replaced. Between shipping and logistics, I was without a jacket for over 4 months.

This second pair of FXRG gloves (the new "improved" leather ones) are only 10 days old.

This is the best gear that the MOCO makes?:

That stinks Vettster,

I do own one pair of the FXRG Gloves. I'm not sure how many ones there are but mine are the leather winter weight gloves. So far the leather is staying soft and they are staying together after two winters.

Thanks for the heads up. For the price these items should be the finest that there is.

RIDE ON!

Why oil 10 day old gloves, or any gloves?

Thanks for the Information. I am looking for Cold Weather Riding Gloves. Been looking every where and can not find a pair that is comfortable that still gives you the dexterity needed that are warm enough. If any one has any more info on winter riding gloves please let me know. I want to try and stay away from the heated gloves.

Thanks
Mike

Because they are made of leather.

The address below is for battery heated gloves. Not by bike battery but lithium ion packs on each glove. They are not leather but they are the warmest gloves I've ever worn, even with the heat off. Rode at 22 deg F and hands were toasty.

Bought mine at twomorrowssupply.com
