Earlier on, I bought proper riding gloves but I did not like them because the velcro strips had a tendency to hook the inside of my leather jacket and pull the nylon apart. This time, I bought a pair of heavy duty 100% cowhide leather gloves (imported) for RM80 plus. It was originally patch dry, tough and yellow orche in colour. When I took it home, I bathe it in generous dose of baby oil and it immediately turned dark brown and soft just like I wanted it to be. I give it a week to dry on its own. Looks and feels great and no more problem as faced with my "proper" riding gloves. It is easily at par with the more expensive gloves of the RM200-RM300 range.
