Ladies Glove Suggestions?

I'm in the market for some new gloves - any of you ladies have input on what kind you have and how you like them/recommendations? I am looking for to the wrist style, and gel palm.

I just picked up the new JR Phoenix a few weeks ago. I had the previous ones, and LIKED them, but ended up with some soreness in the palms due to not enough padding. Also, they were men's, so they didn't fit quite right. The NEW ones are far and away a better glove... the breathe wonderfully, they have a nice hard armour on the exterior of the knuckles, and they have a neoprene cuff that tucks nicely into jacket sleeves.

I also LOVE the perf'd Icon Pursuit gloves, BUT didn't find them to have very much padding in the palms.

I also have (for winter) a pair of Teknic Chicane leather gauntlets, which I scarecely had enough time to break in this past winter.

Pippi, are you looking for a lady specific glove or any gloves that will fit your little hands?

Pippi, the best gloves I've ever worn are made by Frank Thomas. Not only are they comfortable, but they breath, fir my small hands very well, aren't that expensive and I've had mine for years. I'll never go back to another brand. Here's a linky poo to the ones that I own.... http://www.frank-thomas.co.uk/product/wgl/seg129.html these are the other style that I just ordered...http://www.frank-thomas.co.uk/product/wgl/seg134.html They're made of Roo and are just yummy. A lot of places here in the states sell um. I just buy mine direct from the UK. Hope this helps!

Cycle Gear (both the stores and online) carry a bunch of the Frank Thomas stuff, including ladies gloves.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone! I'm going to stop in to the local bike store today to try some on and see what feels good and then order. They dont have to be lady specific but really like a cushy palm and good fit.

You'd be really surprised what a difference Lady-specific gloves make. I don't have small hands (wear a Medium in Men's gloves, and an XL in ladies)... my previous Phoenix gloves were men's... they FIT just fine. Were comfy... but a bit broad through the palm (I guess my hands are more long than they are wide)... just enough of a fit issue that sometimes (if I didn't get them secured just right before take off) they'd bother me on the ride. No such problem with my new ones, though (which are the ladies fit).

Good luck! I hope you find something!

i just received a pair of joe rocket phoenix gloves today. i tried them on and am pretty sure i am gonna love them. tonight i'll try them on the bike. what i like is that there is enough room in the finger that i can wear my rings. my wedding ring kept getting caught in my old ones, and it was tight and uncomfortable (damn big rock i got ). these gloves are even pre-curved a bit. i like that.

only one downfall so far...they are a bit short in the index finger, but plenty long enough in the other ones.

Well, I ended up with some Olympians and dont care for them (thats what I get for waiting till 2 days before my trip to the Gap). I think I am going to look into a pair of Helds.
