Roeckl Summer Chester
New Favorite XC Gloves
Cute, light, and grippy - I forgot I was wearing them, now that's a compliment! During an otherwise-sweaty event, my hands were cool & dry. I already rode dressage in the traditinal Roeckls, and was tired of wearing through cross-country gloves like they were disposable, so sprung for these and am delighted. Now we'll see if they hold up as expected! I ordered a half-size down from my usual, based on the comments, and that worked perfectly for me.

Perfect Summer Gloves
I usually hate riding in gloves because they make my hands even more sweaty in the summer. Not these gloves! My hands stay nice and cool and maintain a grip on the reins without being overly sticky or tacky.
The color does not leave my hands black, even after multiple rides. After two months they still look as nice as they day I got them!
On top of that, you just can't beat the cute patterns.

The gloves are nice and look good but seem VERY expensive for what they are. I was expecting to be dazzled for $50 gloves and I just wasn't.

Good for the summer
I live in Florida and these are really comfortable cool gloves. They are new but it appears they are much more durable than the other light weight Roeckl gloves. I have washed them a few times and they launder nicely. They run about a 1/2 size large.

Love these gloves!
This is my second purchase of these gloves. The last pair had held up for at least 2 years, but I unfortunately misplaced one of them.
They are soft and durable and I absolutely love the mesh top....keeps your hands so cool in the heat of the summer! Love the fun argyle colors, as well.

I was glad to see that Roeckl has put out a Summer glove which appears to be slightly more durable than the Solar glove. While I LOVE my Roeckl Solar gloves, they do wear out QUICKLY. The only questions here are: Will this glove be as comfortable/cool to wear while riding in the summer? Will they hold up better than the Solars? Will they prevent the dreaded "glove tan" as well as the Solars? I guess time will tell. I do find that I have high hopes for these gloves as they are considered to be in the Chester family of Roeckl's gloves. The Chesters are my go-to riding gloves! LOVE THOSE!
