    Advice on gloves?

    Im looking for a pair of gloves that provides some knuckle and plam protection and are durable. Does anyone have suggestions? I have looked at the oakley factory pilot, but they seem to lack palm protection, fox bomber and unabomers seem to lack durablity as do the rock gardn fates. Has anyone tried the scott DH Xtreme III?

    Thanks

    Glove selection

    I find that most dirt motocycle shops have a variety of very good gloves that offer good protection yet are light and flexible.

    what kind of palm protection?
    Padding or skid-proof?

    DH gripper

    a few years back Race Face had the "perfect" MTB glove called the Race Face DH Gripper.

    perfect fit
    rubberized fabric on the palm
    very little padding - I hate over padded gloves

    sadly they updated their design. doh! Good thing a picked up about 4 pairs on closeout!
