    Hot Weather Full Fingered Gloves - Recommendations?

    There seems to be a lot of threads on cold weather gloves, however, here in the southern hemisphere it's summer and pretty hot...

    What I'm after are some recommendations for full fingered gloves to use in these warmer climes... I don't need any padding as I use Ergon grips, but want something that's well ventilated plus a terry toweling bit for wiping away sweat and snot...

    Any thoughts on a decent set appreciated...

    TIA

    I have these Fox Reflex, they do the job.. I've had good luck with Fox gloves.. even if you don't need the gel, you won't notice it unless you crash, then it'll offer more palm protection. These gloves ventilate almost too good, the deer flies (flyng piranha) bite right through them..

    I like the Endura Elite Gel-vent FF gloves. I wear them all year riding in Texas. What seems to work best is the venting across the palm and pads.

    It's not enough that we do our best; sometimes we have to do what's required.

    I really like my Race Face Deus XC Gloves Very light, good grip. The entire back of the hand and fingers is a tight mesh with a terry cloth thumb. Seem to be holding up well. I'll order another pair when these wear out. Be sure to order a size up.

    Fox Incline are a good choice. No padding and lightweight, last a long time as well. Inexpensive too, at least here in the States.

    These are what I settled on, they are inexpensive, they wear tough and they breathe really well. I tend to sweat like a hooker in a sausage factory during weather warmer than 65 degrees so, take it for what it is worth.

    I like any of the several Spesh BG full fingered gloves. I "need" that hand-heel pad.
    Nobody cares...........

    I like the look of the HE2 gloves. I wish they were out now. Any idea of the retail price when they do get out here? The problem I find with gloves that are too flimsy on top is that the Cholla cactus will get you if you even brush them lightly. Not fun. Here in Tucson you need a bit more protection.

    I've used the Fox Digit and the Fox Dirtpaw. I ride in NC and sweat like a fat man. Going for a ride in the heat doesn't bother me. I'm going to sweat in 80 degrees the same as I will in 98 degrees. My hands have never been a source of sweat, though, with either of those gloves. Most of the full-fingered gloves will have a very thin material or mesh between the fingers, allowing airflow.

    Bike shops are good places to look for full-fingered gloves, but you can also check out places that sell dirt bike gear. I got my Dirt Paw gloves for $20.

    I live in singapore (24-32c weather). I have sweaty palms too.

    Troy Lee XC gloves are great.

    Dakine ventalators have been the best I have used. I use them for DH, Xc ect in the summer and they work great. I should add that I live in Kamloops B.C and during the summer it will be 40 cel when I go for rides. Even night rides at 3 in the morning are still 28 cel

    x2 on the dakine's. I ride with them from 90's down to the 40's and have no complaints. They also seem to dry out quickly.
    ...don't worry it's coming...

    Pearl Izumi Elite MTB Gloves

    Been using these for a season. They don't get crappy on the palms like some old gloves I have with real thick leather. I notice when you sweat that area becomes soggy, but not on these.

    Giro Rivet
    Great gloves with no cuff velcro. I've tried a bunch, dakine ventilators, etc and used to like Troy Lee gloves but once I tried these Giro Rivet's I have a new favorite and now can't stand annoying wrist cuffs.
    They are thin with no padding and come in white.

    I used Fox Digit. They are about done with now, but there is a good chance that I will replace them with the same thing.

    I tried the Fox Incline gloves but they were still too hot for me here in Phoenix. I picked up a pair of Mechanix Vent gloves and love them. They breath a lot better than the Fox gloves do.

    Vote 2 for the Specialized BG gloves - BF and I both wear them although he's brought a pair of Mechanix gloves into his rotation too.
    Try these on if possible - I've found different colors actually fit differently.
    Women's run a bit narrow through the hand - I'm in a men's small and it fits better than a women's medium.
    Great suggestions from other posters, I'm looking forward to checking some of these out!
