After reading reviews about how soft and supple these gloves were, I had a difficult time deciding to buy them. I mean… I'm the kind of guy who wants the thick tough macho leather protecting him, not soft sissy leather these gloves sound like in the reviews.
In just a few months and 6000 miles later, these gloves have changed my mind about what I need in a glove for protection. I still have to remind myself that these seemingly thin gloves will protect me better than thicker cow skin, but I'm now able to enjoy all the dexterity and control that I was depriving myself of.
I no longer loathe toll booths. Getting the ticket, your wallet, and money from your pocket is not the chore it once was. I can do it all with the gloves on!

I really could not have appreciated the quality and feel of my new gloves without putting them to work. They are fantastic, and you can immediately tell the difference between quality and economy. My physician is a bike rider and he highly recommends gloves at all times (he has picked out his share of asphalt in the ER). I would also highly recommend the DeerTours and plan to always have a pair on hand! Fox Creek is the best at price, guarantee, and service. Thanks a million!

I bought the Tan Deer Tours, and have worn them for just over 2,000 miles in mild to warm weather, here in Oklahoma.
I really love the feel of the gloves and my hands stay fairly cool even in warm ( 80deg F ) weather.
Very comfortable and I really like the velcro strap. Worth every penny in my book!

I don't want to repeat what everyone else has said ( great gloves etc) I only would add that if I ordered another pair, I would get the outside seam type. They fit tightly(which I like) but the seam on the thumb presses against my finger tips . Other than that they are the best motorcycle gloves I have had in over 35 years of riding !!!
Gloves a success on cross-country trip! 2004-12-24

I bought a pair of your black touring gloves in the spring of 2004 at the same time as I purchased my new Nomad. This first summer, they have survived 12,000 miles of travel; 7500 of that was during an international trip this past summer through all kinds of weather imaginable. Not once did I think fast enough to protect them from the elements. From British Columbia to Quebec to Memphis and back home, they performed flawlessly. I often ended up wearing them through pouring rain with no problems. With a little help they were dry by the next day and just as flexible as ever. Other than a tiny hole at the end of one thumb and a lot less black dye thanks to the constant rain during the trip,they are as good as new. I would definitely recommend these to anyone for any trip.

Without a doubt, these are the best gloves I have ever owned. Super soft and flexible,strong and gorgeous. I was a little apprehensive at first to invest this much money into a pair of gloves, but, now that I own them I can understand the old adage of "you get what you pay for". My only niggle is perhaps the sizing is a bit large. I always wear an XL so that is what I ordered and they are just the smallest bit too large, something I can overlook as the rest of the glove is fabulous. I am even able to reach into my jeans pockets and retrieve change. Now that is a glove.
They're comfy.....but, 2006-04-11

These are some of the most comfortable gloves I've worn. My wife bought them as a present sometime back and obviously did a good job selecting them. However, I have one issue with them. Anytime my hand sweats bad or I get the gloves wet while wearing them, my hand turns black. Must be the dye in the leather, but either way, it's a bit of a nuisance and will not immediately wash off.

When I need light duty protection, I like the way deerskin gloves feel compared to cow or goatskin gloves. They protect without providing a barrier to feeling what you are touching.
I bought the DeerTours gloves for riding the bike in the warmer weather and they mostly give me what I expect. Another reviewer mentioned the black dye bleeding and I would have bought the natural color if I had read the review ahead of time. They do bleed black dye.
If I were to redesign these gloves, I would put the Velcro strap across the back. It just seems to belong there.
Online sizing charts are a problem when buying motorcycle gloves. I used the Parks chart and bought the XXL size thinking it would give me the relatively loose fit I like. My advice if you buy them is to try them on and if they are tighter than you like, send them back for a larger pair. After waiting six months for mine to stretch to where I like them, I know it is time for my first pair of custom-fit gloves. I own too many pairs of gloves that do not fit well.

I have had my Deer Tours now for 1 full riding season and I must say they are wonderful. The fit and feel are better than any glove I have tried on. They are great looking, top quality gloves and I can literally feel the controls of my motorcycle with them on. Great looks, great protection, great product - you will NOT be disappointed with these gloves.

I purchased my Deer Tour gloves from Fox Creek Leather on April 7, 2004. When they arrived I started to return them because they looked so flimsy. My wife actually talked me into keeping them so you have her to thank for my review.
Since that day I have traveled over 36,000 miles in them and other than natural fading that resulted from multiple washings and exposure to the sun/rain, there's not so much as a rip or tear in either glove. I'm starting to wonder which one of us will wear out first, me or my gloves?
The Men's DeerTours Motorcycle Gloves are one of our best selling motorcycle gloves.
Designed by a professional motorcycle rider, these motorcycle gloves are an ecstatic marriage of form and function. You can feel what you are doing - dig in your pocket for keys and change or adjust a carburetor.
Anyone who has gone down palm first will appreciate the extra padding that in no way limits your dexterity.
Every time I put these motorcycle gloves on there is always a brief moment of appreciation... Grateful that someone took the time to design and make something this nice. I flex my fingers inside the soft leather and a little voice inside me says, "It's not too late to be a contender on the racing circuit."
