FXR 300 gram thinsulate cold weather gloves
I bought a set of FXR Gauntlet 300 gram Thinsulate leather gloves, these are moderately expensive at 90.00 per pair. After riding for about ten minutes in 6 degree cold my hands started getting cold, after twenty minutes my hands felt like needles were piercing my hands. I exchange the leather gauntlet for a set of Nylon FXR Fuel gloves, smame model I bought for my wife. These are 250 gram thinsulate gloves. My wife says they keep her hands warm in colder riding conditions.
I bought my gloves through First Place Parts, a snow mobile gear supplier. I would recommend that you shop elsewhere. First Place Parts is more than happy to talk with you if you are buying their merchandise but once you have paid they will not answer emails queries regarding the status of your shipment. My gloves took about three weeks to get. When I requested a RMA on the gloves they responded only after I physically called their phone number. I was told that they would immediately order replacement gloves so shipment could be made as soon as they got my returned gloves.
After several emails in an attempt to determine the status of my RMA I still have not heard from them. They have not acknowledged receiving the gloves. If you like being left in the dark and not getting any response from the vendor I would find another vendor to order from. As for the FXR gloves, the leather gloves are stiff, difficult to ride with and do not keep your hands warm. The FXR Fuel gloves will be tested as soon as I receive them.
