    Full-fingered gloves w/padded palms?

    I did a search on this but it ends up with a lot of unrelated results and old threads that link to unavailable products, so apologies if this has been covered to death...

    I've been riding a ton of park this season and I think the part of me that's taken the biggest beating is my hands and wrists. I have some really great fingerless gel gloves that I use for road riding, but all of my armored DH gloves have no padding at all in the palms. Other than a few of the Pearl Izumi options that are more like fall roadie gloves, what's out there?

    Something like the attached pic, but with full fingers and some protection would be awesome. I know it's not going to make a massive difference but every little bit helps.

    Iíve used mechanix wear mpact gloves in the past...not as light as dedicated bike gloves, but nicely padded on the palm, and armored better than most DH gloves.

    I just got a pair of Ironclad EXO project impact gloves which look like they should be similar, but havenít had a chance to ride w them yet....

    Dedicated bike gloves always seem to fall apart on me. I get much better mileage out of these work gloves....

    Full-fingered gloves w/padded palms?-fox-racing-ranger-gel-gloves_black-charcoal.jpg

    I ended up going with these - fox Ranger Gel:

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002Y1AO18/

    Almost perfect, just wish the material near the wrist came up a little further. I'm assuming it's shorter to accommodate a watch.

    Other than that they're extremely comfortable and are just what I was looking for.

    I am using these as well, but have been hoping for a better choice.
    The Mechanix have great padding, and wear well, but the finger tips are kinda slippery, and they don't breathe well. On a cold ride, that kinda sucks.
    You can't have everything though, and they kick ass on long downhill runs for padding, and hold up well in a yard sale.
