Furygan Cordoba Motorcycle Gloves
Gloves have a big impact on our riding. I’ve worn gloves that simply did not fit properly making them uncomfortable. The wrong gloves in the wrong conditions leave you with sweaty hands and you can’t get them back on after you stop, or wet and cold hands in the rain. Gloves are one of the most important pieces of kit.
This summer (if you can call it that) I’ve been wearing the Furygan Cordoba gloves in black. They are mid-season motorcycle gloves, designed for comfort and protection, made from a combination of leather, polyester, and Ripstop material, making them durable and abrasion-resistant. The gloves also have a waterproof and breathable membrane to keep your hands dry in wet weather.
The Cordoba gloves have a number of cool features that make them a good choice for all-year-round riding. They have a reinforced leather palm and little finger for impact protection, and a metacarpal shell protector to protect your hands. The Furygan Cordoba gloves also have a palm slider to help reduce the risk of Scaphoid fractures if the worst happens.
In terms of comfort, the Cordoba gloves have a neoprene inner cuff which helps prevent drafts, and a large wrist closure to give a perfect fit. The neoprene is great when you are dry, but is annoying when it’s damp. They also have Furygan Sensitive inserts that allow touchscreen use without removing your gloves. This works really well, even on a smartphone.
Overall, the Furygan Cordoba gloves are a good choice for riders who are looking for a comfortable and protective mid-season glove. They are well-made, feature a good level of protection, and are comfortable to wear. Gloves will always be a compromise; I have some great winter gloves that are completely waterproof and heated, but they are bulky and heavy. I also have some lightweight summer gloves, but they don’t offer much in the way of weather protection, and on a cool summer evening your hands get pretty cold. These Cordoba gloves offer a great balance of weather protection and hand protection and they look great in this colour. Who knew mid-season leather gloves with a lining and membrane could be so flexible?
I find that when I take them off, if my hands are damp or sweaty, or the gloves are wet, it’s hard to get them back on. I find them a little tight to get anything other than a dry hand in there. Then again, I have farmers’ hands with fat fingers, so a slimmer hand would be absolutely fine.
Overall, the Furygan Cordoba gloves are a good choice for riders who are looking for a comfortable and protective mid-season glove. They are well-made, feature a good level of protection, and are comfortable to wear for long periods of time.
In summary; The durable and abrasion-resistant construction and the waterproof and breathable membrane mean they offer a good level of protection from a potential spill or from the weather. The gloves are comfortable to wear and are touchscreen compatible, and they look great.
