I've had a pair of these for 18 months and they are the best summer gloves I've ever had, and appear to be tough and hard wearing. Waterproofing is still 100% and if anything they have got more comfortable wit Continue reading...
If you can stomach paying over £100 for a pair of gloves.. if having them totally waterproof matters to YOU. Then you can't get much better - there are other brands that offer the same qualities - Held. Dainese Continue reading...
For a pair of gloves that cost £170, I wouldn't expext the liner to come away from the outer leather every time the gloves are removed, these are a pain in the butt and I have better goretex gloves for a third Continue reading...


Held Race-Tex gloves would be hugely better quality and spec.

Hmm.  Despite what you think, the Apollos are not racing gloves: they are just very good summer gloves for general purpose use, so the heads are not a great comparison.  A closer match from Held would be the "Touring Star", but that one is not waterproof, nor has XTrafit etc. and so unsurprisingly is cheaper.
