When the weather’s warmer, short gloves provide a great way of keeping cool. I’ve been testing RST’s Tractech Evo 4 Short leather gloves through summer into autumn for several thousand hours of riding to see if they’re any good.

They look smart, and fresh out of the pack feel premium, mostly made from cowhide leather but with a kangaroo leather section on the palm. There’s armour for the fingers and a substantial carbon knuckle protector, and the whole lot is stitched together with Aramid fibres, known for strength.

There’s a sturdy-feeling palm slider which is neatly embossed with the RST logo, and inside, there’s a Kevlar lining to protect the top of your hands. We also like the 3D-effect RST logos dotted around the gloves – neat touches that smarten the gloves up nicely. 

As is commonly seen on motorcycle gloves, the little and ring fingers are conjoined to prevent the dreaded ‘finger roll’. The cuff is elasticated, but not tightly, with a velcro tab used to adjust the fit. The gloves provide CE Level 1 protection rather than Level 2, which is pretty normal at this price. 

I tested a size large, which fit as expected, and the gloves are easy to get on and off. Even on longer journeys, comfort hasn’t been an issue, with no awkward joins or rough stitching causing soreness. Your range of motion doesn’t feel significantly constructed with the gloves on, making for easy operation of your bike’s controls.

  • I feel the connection between the colorful visuals and the magical vibrant world I’ve created in my writing. The pictures reflect who I am as a creative spirit.
    This process has nudged me back from the ledge of self-loathing, especially where photos are concerned. Going forward in my life necessitates being seen in person, on paper, and perhaps even in some forms of media.

    • I knew I couldn’t take away the invasive loneliness of a stranger, especially if it’s lying dormant beneath the bark. But maybe I could distract him from it for that moment like a bird alighting on a branch, catching his photographer’s eye.

  • At the bottom of the mountain, my legs shaky, my face gritty with dust, I could still enjoy the beauty of the clean mountain stream pooling around me. I could laugh with my friends. Life flows. I flow. A real mountain and a metaphorical one are the same. We go up with a certain understanding of ourselves, and come back down changed.

      • I thanked him, and at his direction joined the members of his staff. After the ceremony I returned my machine to its quarters on the roof of the barracks of the air-scout squadron, and with an orderly from the palace to guide me I reported to the officer in charge of the palace.

  • I employed sometimes, a girl carrying a baby, Gregg the butcher and his little boy, and two or three loafers and golf caddies who were accustomed to hang about the railway station. There was very little talking. Few of the common people in England had anything but the vaguest astronomical ideas in those days. Most of them were staring quietly at the big table like end of the cylinder, which was still as Ogilvy and Henderson had left it.
