Claw your way to the top
Giant Maine lobsters have claws so big they can likely break a man's hand. While we don't recommend you shake your competition's hand quite that hard, the Capo Innesco OD LF Gloves keep you training all winter so that, come spring, you have the top step advantage. And then it'll be hi-fives rather than handshakes.
Capo designed these gloves a bit differently than your standard lobster gloves. Rather than the sci-fi salute, Capo pockets middle, ring, and pinky fingers together while leaving the forefinger and thumb free to grip the hoods. This larger pocket keeps your less-often used fingers warmer, while allowing you full range of motion for shifting and braking.
The exterior membrane is a fusion of Neoprene and OutDry. While Neoprene is windproof, it is not waterproof. Using it in conjunction with OutDry, a waterproof fabric, creates a barrier between the cold and your hands. The insulative properties of OutDry keep body heat near your skin, while its ability to breathe means that if your hands tend to get a bit clammy, moisture wicks away to the surface where it evaporates. Ripstop material minimizes wear.
The Capo Innesco OD LF Glove is available in sizes Small to XX-Large and in Black.

- Q & A
Great cold wet weather mitt
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I'd like to second the other reviews comment about the finger length. They fit perfect when wrapped around a bar a tiny bit short when fingers are fully extended. In my opinion this is perfect. One think I didn't see in the description is that there is a glove liner built into the mitt. This has some advantages and some drawbacks. On the up side the way the glove/mitten is constructed keeps the mitten section under control. It won't flop around or get caught in road bike shifters. On the down side using your own liners is very difficult and you can't turn the glove inside out to dry. Overall great product.

I have size xxl hands in most brands, xxxl in Gore gloves, and this fit right at the edge of too tight. What saves it is the pre curve of the glove. If I were to straighten out my fingers, they would be too tight but for riding, putting the wheel on, shifting or breaking, they work fine. I like to ride in the rain and these have kept my hands dry consistently over the last year or so that I've had them. They also keep my hands warm down to 45-50 C. Tough to get on but they are very effective and well worth the price.
