The crochet backs were natural fibre (cotton?) and adsorbent.
The backs of these are perforated goatskin.
I'm sure they'll mop up a fevered brow though, but not as well.

As for sleeping in them, had I been riding for a several hours, I could be too tired to get them off! :D

Now I have a theory that if the mitts had been yellow instead of black, I would have been less likely to ride off not noticing they were still on the rack (I'm entitled to simply forget stuff at my age I think).

Anyone know of cycling mitts with yellow backs?

Thanks - R

PS - good quality, gel padding - I've seen some Pearl Izumi ones on t-internet but its difficult these days to see things "live" so to speak, so any recommendations before I stand in shop queues would be most welcome. Oh, and I don't want to spend more than 20 quid in case I lose them again!

You could sew or get sewn elastic on them, then thread them through your sleeves. Foolproof. :)
