…oh wait, they are just that. In 2008 I bought these gloves.  I paid $39 which I considered extravagant at the time. 8 years and 60,000 plus KM and they are still my go-to gloves. My only complaint is that the dye was not water proof and made a mess of my hands after the first rain. 

Odd in that I kept thinking they were elk skin and I just realized they are goat skin. My vegan friends will disapprove. 

I am trying to decide if I should buy another pair in preparation for the day when I finally wear out the the pair I have.
