    whats a good xxl full finger glove

    ive got a pair of fox dirtpaws but all the sticky stuff wore off the fingers after maybe a hundred miles. i like the thin palm because i have some ergons so somebody give me some ideas for some better gloves for us guys with big hands.
    thanks in advance

    I have pretty long fingers and the only XXL that fits is a Pearl Izumi. Nice and cool too.
    All you need is love... but Scotch'll do in a pinch.

    +1 for Dakine and Fox. A darkhorse candidate you might consider is also the stuff from REI (Novara) though for me it's been hit or miss depending on each glove, but the ones I've bought are lasting and comfy. BFE, what the hell are you doing over here you skinny bassturd?

    Are the wheels roundish? Ride it.

    I have run Fox full finger gloves of multiple varieties over the years. I like them, and they are easy to find in XXL, XXXL and more.

    Not a clyde but you should try on the Giro Rivet. I wear it in XL. It fits awesome and it doesn't have that stupid velcro strap that I hate. Just pull it on and ride. I tried other gloves but they either had the strap or the palm would bunch up when I would close my hand.

    MetalJesticator, BFE=BIGfatED. Glove opinion(s) were for you; grief was for my brother in dirt. He's a freaky tall, super skinny, bike riding machine with a wicked sense of style and a morbid sense of humor...nice guy to boot. Don't tell him I said that though. I have a rep to maintain.
