Love these gloves, and I'll be sad to bin the old ones - all the more so because the leather padded palms are still absolutely sound - but there's no getting round the fact that the webbing is shot to hell and the velcro straps barely grip at all.

Fingerless mittens in December
 
Where did you get them?
I'm struggling to find crochet back mitts now to replace my Bontrager pair which are no longer made.
Are they cycling specific or also for other things like weightlifting and stuff? As that can make the design less good for cycling.

I got them from these people - they're sold as wheelchair gloves, but I find them great for cycling.
