Q: What is the difference between the Akando Classic Black gloves and Akando Pro Black gloves?
A: Difference in classic and pro models is in type of leather used. In "classic" model we use sheepskin - white and in "pro" model we use cowhide -black. Besides colour, sheepskin is thinner thus giving you more feel. Cowhide is a bit thicker thus more durable. Regarding warmness "pro" model is only slightly warmer.
Q: Should I buy the “Akando Windstopper gloves” for the summer season? I fear that they will be too hot during the summer?
A: PRO and CLASSIC models are designed to be used during most of the jumping season, except winter or very cold jumps (ground level temperatures below 10 degrees Celsius). Backside of this models is made of stretchy fourway spandex material which breathes much better than the windstopper gloves. Windstopper gloves are designed to be warmer and they can also be used on motorcycles, as they are excellent in preventing wind from coming inside the glove from the backside. Most people use pro and classic models and they are our best sellers.
Q: Are all of your gloves washable and dryable?
A: Since our gloves are made with real leather, you should treat them as any other leather garment. Real leather has many advantages for this purpose compared to artificial materials, but they should not be washed or tumble dried.
