I don't know if any of you are aware of Armadillo scooter gear, which is a new supplier of funky looking scooter clothing here in the UK.
I have (or had) a pair of their gloves. On locking up today, I threaded my security chain through the back wheel, still wearing my gloves in order to avoid burning my hands.
The gloves touched the exhaust briefly while I was doing this and melted and right down to the finger! If this is any indication of quality overall, I'd give Armadillo a miss. Tearing or loose stitching can be dealt with. But when your kit melts on you, it is time for leather!
