Best Harley Davidson Gloves

Updated for 2020

Anyone who rides a motorcycle should buy and always wear a good, sturdy pair of gloves. Gloves keep your hands comfortable while riding and they protect against the elements and in the event of an accident.

I’m all for finding gloves with the absolute most protection and features like a good gauntlet, knuckle padding, and palm sliders, but understand that not everyone is going to choose the safest piece of gear every time they ride.

At the very least you need to wear some kind of motorcycle gloves built with strong materials that are well-crafted. Harley-Davidson is primarily known for its motorcycles, but the company makes some of the best gear out there, too. Here are ten of the best pairs of Harley-Davidson gloves out there.

1. Peshtigo Leather Gloves

Peshtigo Leather Gloves

If you’re a fan of old-school leather gloves, then you’re going to love the Peshtigo Leather Gloves from Harley-Davidson. It’s the mixture of classic style and quality construction that make these some of the best-selling motorcycle gloves on Harley’s website.

While these gloves are modeled after classic work gloves, they are going to be more comfortable than a pair of gloves you can pick up at the hardware store, the company took pains to make them work for motorcyclists. The shape of the gloves was crafted to be most comfortable while riding, meaning they’re not too bulky or stiff.

Here are the gloves features:

  • Ergonomic shape with a 15-degree curve to the fingers
  • Elastic at the wrist for a comfortable fit
  • Distressed leather for a classic, worn look
  • Laser-etched Harley-Davidson logo on the back

These gloves feature the Harley-Davidson logo across the back of the hand in black. It’s a not-so-in-your-face proclamation of your affinity for the brand, but it is noticeable. Pair this with premium features and you’ll find few reasons to dislike these gloves.

Admiral Under Cuff Gauntlet Gloves
