I'm not convinced their Zone classifications are accurate or even relevant, but that's based on my one accident.

Interestingly, the lightweight HD leather gloves I was wearing were totally destroyed, the fingers on both were just hanging in taters, and I had not a mark or an injury on either hand.

Wondering? I've tested them a couple of times! My shorty Held gloves did an excellent job of protecting my hands when the deer swept me off of my bike except for the deep road rash on my right wrist. Lesson learned, no more gloves that don't cover my wrists. Fast forward five years (the horse encounter) and my BMW summer gloves protected my hands AND wrists. The knuckles are a little scuffed but they're still in use.
