you're fighting the glove addiction, aren't you? if it helps, I would personally want to try them on, to see how tight the fingers were & what the liner, if any, did when I removed may hand. too may gloves are fine until you want to take your hand out & put them back in

Nope. Swany X-Change gloves have been around in one form or another and under different names for decades. My 20 year old pair are doing just fine and were used twice last week. They refuse to die.

$59 is a great price.

+1 I had them repack my rear hub, maybe an hour tops. The guy looked like he was building and maintenancing summer bikes.

Thanks for the info. I ended up ordering a pair. I seem to always have trouble keeping my hands warm. The X-Change gloves make all my other gloves look like a joke.
