How is the ventilation in those Sullivan's? I have two great pair of late fall to early spring gloves, it is the summer months that I am looking to get covered.

The model I bought is the unlined deerskin gauntlet. Not sure if they have any perforated deerskins but for me the unlined deerskins are fine in summer. Have been wearing the Rodney gloves this past summer and while they are fine and offer the ventilation ... for ME they are not as comfortable as my regular deerskins. I also have a new pair of these I have not yet worn.

Sorry for the delay on response everyone.
Selden:
Thank you for website and discount codes. I have the site saved...and unless Revzilla or another site has stupid prices, FC Moto will probably where I will get my gloves from. After hearing about the Sambia's, the debate has now started between them and the Rodney's. I agree, black for a summer glove makes little sense.
Thank you everyone for your honest opinions and suggestions

Mike

I just purchased a pair of Lee Park Deer Tourers to replace my Aerostch elk skins Ropers. The Stich gloves were my go-to for 5 years. Unfortunately, after getting drenched a few times they became stiff even though I had treated them with a high quality leather dressing regularly. Made my hands cramp after a while so retired them.
Just returned from a 600 mile trip & can report the Deer Skins were everything people & reviews had said. Very luxurious & comfy. Supposedly they will not stiffen up after repeated washings in the rain. Definitely worth a close look as a touring glove...

I'm sure that the Lee Park's are good, saw them at the Chicago Show. Also saw the Gripswell gloves and liked them for their anti fatigue padding, plus the leather was ultra soft. Had them for about 6 years and decided to get some new ones as I'd had them for about 50K miles. $59.... great deal.4


Don't sweat the small stuff.... and it's all small stuff!!!
