HELD gloves.

Looking at possibly purchasing a pair of HELD gloves. My go to, Revzilla, is out of stock on all of my options. The HELD (USA) website does not seem to let you buy from the site which of course seems strange. If I am wrong, do tell.

FC Moto online has all the HELD gloves available however, never used them, not comfortable because out of country. Anyone with high regard/experience for/with FC Moto?

Bottom line, if you have purchased HELD gloves, do you like them and where did you buy them online or otherwise? TKS!

I have a pair of Rodney summer gloves and a pair of Air and Dry and I love. They're pricy, but quality and comfort is top notch. If I remember correctly I ordered a pair from FC Moto and the other pair from Amazon or Ebay. FC Moto is definitely legit....I've ordered other stuff from them before.

We have a few pair of Held in our household. We’ve found them to be good quality, and worth the $$$. Unfortunately, we’ve purchased all ours from Revzilla, so if they're out, I don’t know where else to send you.

I have a pair and I really do love them. I have the kangaroo leather. I found them by internet search looking for the specific model after trying on a boat load at a dealer. Can't find my receipt, but I know it wasn't RevZilla.

Edit: I just received a new pair of Held Satu II gore-Tex rain gloves. Also have Held Air-stream and Steve classics. All were purchased from Revzilla or EBay

Held make a good product. I have rather large hands and so have tried several manufacturers including Rukka who are supposedly one of the best. Purchased there best Gortex Glove. They leaked from the get go and infuriatingly the lining come out of the glove with your hands and are impossible to get back in. Wrote to them, no reply....needless to say I will never buy there products again.

On the upside some years ago I discovered IXS who I understand are a Swiss manufacturer. The quality is excellent and unlike Rukka their products do what they say on the wrapper. Complimenting a pair of their standard unlined leather gloves I recently purchased https://ixs.com/ixs-handschuhe-arcti...r=X41016-003.8. Superb quality Gortex, very comfortable. The liner stays put and the gauntlet makes a good seal eliminating all the rain and cold air.

I've also tried Klim, they make excellent products. I currently own their Hardanger and a set of mid layers from them to go with it. Their gloves unfortunately are too small.

Good hunting and safe riding.

I purchased a pair of these https://www.amazon.com/BMW-Genuine-M...%2C186&sr=8-12 at the MOA rally last month for $149. I haven't torture tested them yet but I heard from at least 4 people that have owned them for years who told me they really like them. I'm told they are made by the same place that makes Held's version.
I did wear them in heavy rain for about 1/2 hour and they kept my hands dry and the lining didn't pull out when I removed them. The Kangaroo palm leather dried out fairly quickly after the rain quit. I like the 2 in 1 feature although they are bulky and probably not for hot weather so a 3 season glove.

I bought mine from F.C. Moto and am very happy.
