    gloves?

    Does anyone know a good website or company to get some quality gloves from other than Rolli which carry Hatch corp gloves? I like the half finger, full thumb. I used to have ones made by push ease, but it seems that they don't make them anymore because I can't find them. The Hatch gloves I don't like because I find they are uncomfortable and the material does not have good grip and they suck if they get wet. Any clues?

    yeah mechpro bought push ease and dropped the full thumb along with the tan colored gloves. i had to switch to the half thumb which took a few days of getting used to.

      that sucks because the full thumb is key. That is one of the most important spots I need protection. My thumb is what gets all cut up. No luck finding some good full thumb ones elsewhere?

        yeah my thumbs took a beating at first but now the skin has toughened up. i tried the hatch and a few other brands but couldn't get the grip the pushease gave. i was buying the full finger gloves and cutting the fingers out.

          I just found this site that looks like it may have some different gloves to try. I guess I might order a pair and hope they are like the push ease used to be. check it out. http://www.celticware.com/acatalog/G...ssories_2.html

                Has anyone used the wet weather gloves? My current gloves suck in wet weather.

                  The best thing ive found for wet weather are the foam pushrims.Im able to get a way better grip on them in rain or snow than i could with plastic coated rims..

                    Shaun do you use gloves with the foam push rims? Do they tare up easily? My coated ones are less than 2 moths old and messed up already.

                          Pita? Your rims turn into a soft greek bread when they get wet..do you stuff them beef or chicken before you eat them

                          Aly i use the Hatch gloves..ive got some small tears and dents in them but i thought they have stood up will considering how soft they are.Ive had them for a year and they show the wear a little more than the plastic coated but after using them i'll never go back to the plastic...

                            I have the plastic coated and my Hatch gloves have been all shitty. This is my third pair and a weekend in Vegas put two huge holes in them. I found the Hatch to be even worse when they get wet. You can't stop at all!

                              Once in a while, you can find gloves like you are describing at a bicycle shop. They are also cheaper than buying them from a speciality wheelchair shop.
