HMK is a company designing and manufacturing gloves at the base of Mt. Hood, Oregon. They're well known for their snowmobiling gloves, and these are the first pair of motorcycling gloves we've gotten from them but we love them so far! The molded fit of the knuckle protection and extensive elastic bunching make for an easy fit with no stress points. The tall gauntlet fit reinforces your wrist and also has two large Kevlar scrape pads. This seems to be a very well made glove, certainly well designed, and we can't wait to go put it through the wringer!
