I was 9.5 too. Cool, good to know you like your hungarian ones as I guess that is the issue. I figure, how bad can they be?

My Steve gloves are Hungarian.. The first pair I got had a twisted right hand index finger. Not much, but enough that an expensive pair of gloves that should be perfect enough.
I sent them back to Held and got a replacement pair in just a couple days, which were perfect.
I've now been wearing that pair for 1 1/3 seasons and they really don't look much different than when new..
They're wonderful in fit and finish.. The rubber wiper dohickey is also wonderful!!
The fact that they have 1/2 sizes is also a huge bonus, as I wear a 9.5.

Well, I now know more about motorcycle gloves than anyone should. And I am glad I am getting some decent gloves finally...for a guitarist and writer, I should probably keep my hands serviceable if possible.
I looked at a BUNCH of gloves including all the ones recommended here, and I decided on the Held Steves. Why? The rivets on the palm make a hell of a lot of sense to me. All the gloves mentioned seem super nice, though.
Thanks again everybody.
And I got to do business with newenough. Great folks. They have some good stuff on closeout...worth a look. Although there is going to be red on my gloves...gonna have to get em dirty quick.

Been doing some reading and a lot of folks seem to think the quality of held gloves has gone down. Now I'm back where I started. Was looking at Helimot, but they are REALLY expensive.
Dan, how long ago did you get your Steves...before the move to German/Hungarian production?

Yeah, the Held and Dainese stuff is very nice. I looked at a pair of these http://www.revzilla.com/product/dain...leather-gloves and was drooling. But, the pair of gloves I wear the most are these.....
I bought them at freakin' Wal-Mart on a lark for 30 bucks. Branded by Bell and probably made in Poonjab, India. They are leather, may not be cowhide, maybe Yak or Wildebeast. What can I say.....I have others that were much more expensive but they are the ones I always reach for.
I messed up and actually tried on a Dainese leather riding jacket the other day at Cycle Gear in Dallas. WOW. I've been looking at leather jackets a while and this was it! However, $800.00 is way too steep for me. Any others comparable at a workingman's wage?

I have a pair of Held Steve gloves.. When these wear out, I'll order another pair of Held Steve gloves.. http://www.newenough.com/closeouts/g...le_gloves.html
And I paid full price..
