Summer Mesh Gloves

Hey mates!

So I want to buy some new mesh gloves to be used for street-riding.

I have some perforated leather Alpinestars gloves with plastic knuckle protection which are great for about 60F - 80F, but above that my hands get toasty. I'm looking for some short-gauntlet mesh gloves with some knuckle protection that I could use in the hottest temperatures. It gets to 100 - 110F and super-humid around here in the summer!

Do you guys have any recommendations on what to buy?

Motocross gloves are nice in the summer heat.

I picked up a pair of Held Sambia's last year and love them. The knuckle protection has little vents that pull in air. Pretty decent protection for a mesh glove...has some Superfabric on the part of the palm and the leather is kangaroo leather. Decent price too.

FirstGear Meshtecs if you want protection and a longer gauntlet type glove for hot weather.

Last year I picked up a pair of Triumph Adventure Mesh gloves. They are my favorite gloves in terms of fit. I wear them even when the weather is less than optimal for a mesh glove because I like them that much.

But....they may fit you differently.

Thanks guys!
Right now I'm debating between Held Sambia and Triumph Adventure Mesh. The Held seems to have a little more protection and maybe a bit less airflow, and the Triumph seems to have more airflow and still decent protection, so I'm gravitating towards Triumphs.If anyone else knows of another great option, post it up!

Your advice has been of great value! I wouldn't have found either of these just by looking at "best sellers" or "best reviews" at the online retailers...

RevIt Monster gloves are my hot weather go to gloves. Anything over 100F and I'll just ride naked anyway.

Thanks ATGATT! The RevIt Monster won't get me anymore airflow than my current Alpinestars... Can't commute naked though, pretty sure that's not considered "business casual"

Just ordered the Triumph Adventure Mesh gloves for $60.
Seems like this is the best airflow with still decent crash protection and quality of workmanship.
We'll see how they do for the daily commuting duty.

Alpinestars SMX worth a look ... had a pair for years, really solid build quality. Only problem has been the wrist closure velcro coming unglued from the rubber after about 5 years - easily glued back on. Two workmates have had the same gloves for just as long with the same experiences. Apart from the wrist closure velcro they hardly seem to wear at all.
