1. Though Belstaff’s Rapido gloves are a little wild for our particular tastes, they definitely make you feel safe (even if you also feel a bit like RoboCop). Made of leather, they feature molded knuckles, side palm reinforcement, silicone grip on the thumb and forefinger, cooling vents on the front of three fingers, and both a hook-and-loop wrist adjuster and a double-cuff adjuster. Available in black and red, the Rapidos we sampled broke in quickly and comfortably. The look and feel is a bit “boy racer,” but if you still happen to ride like one, you’ll appreciate the extra protection they offer. The double cuff is a little cumbersome, but they secure over your jacket sleeve nicely. Price: $79.

2. Possibly the slickest looking gloves here, REV’IT!’s Club H20 gloves are great for touring, offering a breathable and waterproof membrane that keeps hands dry while allowing moisture to evaporate. The tri-fleece inner lining adds a soft and comfortable feel to the gloves, and a bit of insulation for colder conditions. The outer shell is buttery-soft goatskin, and though the insulation makes them a bit warm for summer’s hottest days, these are very attractive gloves for the other nine months of the year. Price: $79.99.

3. Straight from Hugger Glove Co. come these lined Classic Gauntlet gloves. Made of premium waterproof Technaline leather, they feature a padded palm, elasticized wrist, and Hugger’s Wonder Dry Insert, a material the company claims “absorbs moisture from the palm and releases it when the gloves are at rest.” We found that the insert works great at keeping your hands from getting sweaty, but in 90-degree-plus weather they still get hot. But on cooler days, these gloves are a prize. Their plush liner, supple leather and great fit make them a favorite right out of the package, and at less than $50 a pair, they’re a bargain too. Price: $46.
