    Gerbing Glove Damage - Melted

    Guys, my left Gerbing T5 glove feel off of the seat and onto the left exhaust. It melted the nylon covering on the top/back of the wrist (it's gone and had stuck to the exhaust). It also got into the Goretex lining, so my rain-proof glove is no longer so rain-proof. The glove functions heat-wise, it's not pretty, and I can't simply sew a new covering on it. Gerbing will not sell me 1 glove nor will they repair this one at any price. Gerbing's customer service sugested I have to buy a new "pair".

    Does anyone have suggestions or know of someone who can sew a new covering onto my glove?

    I don't have a photo and the gloves are in the bike.

    Inputs appreciated.

    Thanks, Gordon

    What about something like this. Triple Digit Glove Shells

    It isn't ideal but may be a solution. I have a set of them that I wear over my fall gloves if it is raining.

    Too many Farkles to list. Take a look at bike mods in my profile.

    I do have a set of those that I carry for rain emergencies, but I was looking for a way to replace the covering on the glove itself. I added clear silicone sealant to the palms of my 3-digit covers to make them sticky in the rain - it works!.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Find a fabric store in your town. Last time I was in one with my wife, there was a bulletin board with ads from locals who offered sewing services. Worth a shot.

    Yeah, that is what I kind of figured. I Thought it was worth mentioning in case you didn't know about them.
