I exclusively wear Held gloves with the exception on my heated gloves (Warm and Safe) and have for many years. About 3 weeks ago I hit a oil patch on a downhill off camber left and ended up over the handlebars. was wearing Held Titan gloves and though I almost went through the titanium knuckle protection my hands didnt have a scratch on them. Those gloves werent cheap but as I sit here and type with zero issues with my hands they were worth every penny! I bought those gloves over 5 years ago which shows how great Held holds up (pun??)..
no issues buying from FC Moto. I asked Revzilla about lack of Held and they told me that the US importer had lost their license from Held and company was working on an alternative. Could be a while

Love my Rodneys - best summer glove I've had in 47 years of riding.
At that price it's almost worth getting a second pair for the closet. Great gloves.

PROOF that great minds think alike...

My current pair is about 4 years old, and has probably 60,000 miles, and will go another year.

Held gloves are top-notch. With proper treatment (sporadic leather cleanse and treatment once or twice a year) they last and last.

BTW, it's easy to leather treat gloves. I use Skidmore's. Just put the gloves on, get the dollop of Skidmore's on them and act as though you're washing your hands.

I've had Held Air Stream II gloves for my wife and myself for a few years now. Great summer gloves with the perforated leather. Almost race glove like protection in a summer glove.

Thanks again to all who have put effort in here on the HELD brand/various purchasing options other than Revzilla. Putting it all together I'm about to go with the Air Stream II and order from FC Moto. This entire pursuit is a result of purchasing a pair of REV'IT Cayenne (all black) for a recent trip of 4,350 miles where the black suede/nubuck portion of the glove faded enough for Revzilla to step up and warranty the product using the REV'IT warranty (I have $200 credit).


motardinn.com had a nice video on the Air Stream II glove, not my size though, motorcyclegear.com had a nice size chart.

My Held Rodneys faded pretty well too - after about three years. I just used black shoe polish on them, and presto... looked brand new.

The size selection is poor. Many of the gloves I looked at weren't in stock.

Depending on the return policy wherever you get them, you might want to order the size you think you wear and the next size up as well, keeping the ones that fit best. I find they are are little small per listed size. If you are between sizes, go up for sure when you order. You'll love them for warm/hot weather.
