Guess you shouldn't get them wet

40 miles home in a rainstorm today. Hands seem a little different. Guess the joe rocket gloves bleed a bit.

I have some tan Aerostitch gloves that turn my hands orange when they get wet.

if they're newish, send company an email with that pic, they'll probably send you a new set or something. Icon did that for me when I had an issue with some gloves from them in the past.

Better idea. Trash the JR gloves and get something different. Not a fan at all of JR - had them fail big time. And I think what you have on your hand is all the evidence of quality that you need.

The dye stains are normal, ever since the 70's when the EPA made the leather companies quit using oil based dyes. That's why I wear undyed work gloves to ride and switched from riding leathers to textiles. They don't ruin my dress shirts when I get rained on. Socks are cheap, so I still wear leather boots :-)

Only 2 choices at the local store and the alpinstar gloves don't have long enough fingers no matter what size I tried. They seemed to just get fatter but not longer. Similiarly the joe rocket jackets get taller and longer sleeves without increasing around the middle.
