    Question Favorite gloves for the jumper ring?

    I use Heritage (don't know which model) and some grippy leather Ariats, but am on the hunt for another pair.
    Which do you use? Which do you think is great to use with wet rubber reins (to get a better grip when it's raining)? They don't have to be traditional or dark (I actually prefer the more technical type even if they are colorful or funky looking..).
    TIA!
    Over what hill? Where? When? I don\'t remember any hill....

    I have both pairs of Roeckl gloves listed on this site.

    I just purchased the Hyperdurability gloves with high expectations and love them so far! Nice and grippy but thin. I have them for schooling in, hoping they last a while (I tend to wear through gloves very quickly!). I have the Chester model for shows and also love them! Prior to buying the Hyperdurability gloves I used SSG's and they were good but wore through them pretty quick.

    Hope this was of some help!

    Roeckl is a good choice, some models are designed to have an excellent grip when it's raining.
    You can find all their models here: http://www.roeckl.de/en/products/riding/

    I had SSG gloves for a long time that had little rubber nubs all over. They made hanging on to my reins pretty easy, but I wore through them really quickly. They were only about $7, so I didn't mind replacing them, but it was kind of a pain. Now I have these Roeckls, which seem to be lasting longer and still have the grip effect. http://www.smartpakequine.com/roeckl...ove-2212p.aspx

    Thumbs up Seems like Roeckl outnumbers Heritage and SSG...

    Thanks for the website Andy. I saw a couple that look great there.
    The Hyperdurability look interesting, Kate. Are they thin, too?
    I also wore through my SSG in a couple of months, Supershorty. I guess my deathgrip should be used for quality control in SSG... . I'll look into your Roeckls, too.
    Anyone else have more suggestions?
    Thanks!

    Yes, the Hyperdurability are nice and thin... I wear through right on my ring finger (where the rein passes through) I also have a deathgrip on my reins so I will be interested to see how they hold up! Very grippy though and not too bulky! I am very pleased with mine thus far, although my horse is lame so they only have about a month's use on them...

    I don't do the jumpers, but I school in these and so far they are great with my freight train of a mare I'd had other gloves and when the reins would get sweaty from her neck, they would slip, but with these I don't seem to have that problem

    SSG Digital or SSG Technical. All I ride in now. The wetter they are, the grippier they get! At $30 a pair I don't really mind replacing them every few months.

    I second the Neumann's! I each pair has lasted over a year of riding 5x/ week, plus a 2nd pair just for shows.
