    Padded gloves?

    Any DHers using some good padded gloves that you can recommend? I've taken a few hard falls and seem to always damage the palm/heel of my hand. Is there anything out there that is tougher than most normal DH gloves, perhaps with a gel-padded palm?

    I've heard pretty good things about the Rockgardn Fate Carbon Gloves. Looks like they've got awesome knuckle and forefinger protection, and sounds like they should have some pretty burly palm protection. You should be able to pick up a pair of those for $45. I'm using those 661 Cedric Gracia gloves, only had 2 rides on them but they work for me. No gnarly wrecks or anything yet, though. The 661's are a little cheaper at $40.
    Enjoy yourself, bi***es.

    Try the Specialized Fortress gloves. They have some of the best hand protection available as well as a padded palm. I've had gloves from Oakley and Fox but the Fortress offers the best protecion.
