Furygan AFS 10 Leather Gloves Review
The first thing that struck me about these gloves was that for all-season gloves, they seemed very light. They really don’t look much bigger than many summer gloves, so I was curious to see how they fared against some of the bulkier gloves I’ve tested recently.
And I must say they have a high-quality appearance and feel. The first thing to notice when slipping your hand in for the first time was how soft and plush the interior is, they have a faux fur lining that wraps around your wrist making them snug and comfortable to wear.
They have a tiny amount of room at the end of the finger but not so much that using the bikes controls is clumsy.I have always found the bulky nature of them normally inhibits my movement making me feel like I could lose grip of the bars.
Thankfully the Sparrow gloves only felt insecure in this way for about 10 miles. I think the palm area (a mixture of suede, neoprene and leather) needed to bed in. Now the gloves are as steadfast on the bars as a set of full leather summer gloves.
Comfort and Protection Furygan AFS 10 Leather Gloves
In terms of comfort and protection, the gloves tick all the usual boxes: they are CE approved and feature large knuckle armour and both leather and foam reinforcements for added protection.
The palm is 100% leather and the rest of the glove is a mixture of polyamide and goat leather. There are two Velcro adjusters, on the wrist and the cuff, which help get the perfect fit and make the gloves easy to get on and off.
In terms of warmth I found the gloves good enough for about an hour and a half of riding before the cold began to cause a little numbness. The gloves are noted as being 100% water proof and I can vouch for this claim. Through some truly awful winter storms my hands remained completely dry right the way up to where the gloves ended.
Features Of The Furygan AFS 10 Leather Gloves
The Furygan AFS 10 Leather Gloves have some handy (pardon the pun) features, the visor wipe on the left hand thumb is great and works really well, better than any other I’ve tried.
The whole of the inside of the wrist is elasticated and its extra-long meaning that even the bulkiest of winter coats can be covered and secured. The gloves also feature a special insert on the fore finger to allow you to use your phone or satnav, this worked okay but tended to select the wrong button on my Garmin as the fingertip area is quite large.
If you need a glove for a 5000-mile Nordic tour through winter, a heated glove is what you want, but for an hour or so commute you can’t go wrong with these Furygan’s gloves. Want to purchase the Furygan AFS 10 Leather Gloves cost is $70 usd Free Shipping.
