Sugoi Firewall GT Glove
$50, Sugoi.com

The Sugoi Firewall GT provides a good level of wind and moisture resistance while still providing good dexterity. The silicon pattern on the ends of the thumb, index and middle finger provide good shifting and brake control, while the material used in the palm provided a sure grip on the bars. The cuff, however, was cut slightly short and didn’t provide a complete seal between the tester’s jacket and glove. The S3+ material used in the Firewall is designed to keep body heat in while keeping out the cold and wet. The Firewall GT became the tester’s choice for windy days, as the material showed excellent wind stopping capacity. While the Firewall GT did not handle cold temperatures as we would have expected, the combination of good dexterity and wind resistance make it an excellent choice if the climate offers prolonged periods of windier weather in the fall or spring.
