Diving into a new hobby can be pricey, but with the rewarding miles ahead you charged forth, bit the bullet, and are getting your kit dialed for the miles to come. Not everything you need has to break the bank, though, and Louis Garneau's Women's Calory Gloves put their money where their mouth is, with construction that is built to hold up, and a price tag that doesn't illicit four-letter-word reactions. The gloves are crafted with a synthetic leather palm with integrated Ergo Air ventilation, and foam padding that soaks up the sting from rough roads. Stretchy synthetic makes up the back of the hand, wrapping around you comfortably, and wicking away sweat. Top-tier features like a soft glasses wipe and finger pullers boost these gloves far above what we'd normally see at such an entry-level price.

These gloves are great quality and have all the features you want. My challenge is that I have fairly small hands and I nearly always use a small glove size (ring size 5-6). I ordered the medium and they were a bit tight the first ride (8 miles). The second ride (25 miles) I thought they would loosen up, but I had to take the right glove off at 23 miles because it was cutting into the web between my fingers so badly that my whole hand/arm was going numb. I wish I would've bought the large. Also, probably because of the size, they were EXTREMELY hard to get off. The "finger pulls" seem a little fragile and are hard to grab a hold of. I had to use my teeth to be able to grab onto them and pull.
