    riding gloves?

    I figured this would be the best place for this question.

    My grips wear the inside of my thumb away a little bit after holding on for a while on rides, so I was going to get some nice gloves to use when riding. What do you guys wear? A link to purchase or place you picked them up at would be helpful also

    Edit: I bought some slippery matrix gloves

    I used to always buy watercraft gloves but this last time I bought some motocross gloves. They feel great look great and provide a good grip on the water. They also do fine when they are wet. Give them a try at your local motorsports store.

    I wear a pair of neoprene fishing gloves from Bass Pro. My wife and I bought a couple pairs for fishing; we liked them so much that we went back for two more to keep in our skis. They're cushy, waterproof, warm enough for cold morning spray, and cheap enough (10 bucks) not to worry about losing.

    I prefer wakeboarding gloves with wrist closures. I like a leather palm and usually buy the gloves one size smaller so they fit well when wet. I do not like the finger tips being too long as most PWC gloves are flat cut, I like secure fit. I also like that the wakeboarding gloves are curved to normal hand positioning, so that works well on the handlebar grip.

    I wear the slippery gloves and work very well. So far the only ones i have found that are big enough. I tried the pilot gloves but even the x large want even come close to fitting.

    I prefer surfing wetsuits, they are designed for water submersion whereas PWC wetsuits are for surface, depending upon the cut of the suit, they may not be using the latest technology in stretch materials or warmer type of materials such as are provided in wetsuits for submersion.

    I have 2/3, 3/4 and 4/5 mil thickness suits, some with hoods attached, most are front entry. I like Xcel suits, but most are really good.

    Jet Pilot makes 'surfing wetsuits' that are really cool looking and is now pushing thier line in the surfing community, but I think they should change their name to really get the mystique of the product into surfing better...

    A good wetsuit is form fitting to the body, doesn't have drag or excess material, it should fit like a 'second skin' so that a layer of warmth is trapped, and the best suits have glued and stitched seams. Just stitched seams will seep water which makes you cold, but then again it depends upon the weather/wind and the physical ride you choose to execute...don't want to be too hot or too cold!
