Five TFX-2 W/P Mid Season Adventure Gloves

Five are a brand that specialise in motorcycle gloves, so the expectation is that there gloves are going to be pretty good right. We grabbed ourselves a set of the TFX-2 mid season adventure gloves for our trip to the Himalayas to find out exactly how good they are.

Now the first point we are wondering is what exactly a mid season glove is. Well as the name suggests it is not a summer glove and not a full winter glove, it is indeed an offering that sits in the middle. The predicted riding conditions for our trip were set to be in the early to mid teens so the mid season glove seemed to fit the bill.

For us this was the most impressive part of these gloves they were toasty warm and the insides were pretty scmick, it was like sliding your hands into a nice warm bed with quality sheets, not to harsh – nice and soft and they felt quality, indeed high quality like there was no other place your hands would rather be in the chilly Himalayan mornings.

We liked the fact that they were not super thick and allowed great throttle feel and grip. We are not fans of super thick and chunky gloves that take away rider feel and for us the Five mid season adventure offering struck a perfect balance between summer and full on winter mits.

Constructed utilising stretch water-repellent fabric construction on the topside which bodes well for dryness and comfort and on the palm full-grain goat leather. There is also protective foam reinforcement on all knuckles and soft TPR index and middle-finger knuckle protection for added rider confidence and safety.

The TFX-2 mid season adventure gloves offered good water proof protection and during our water crossings there was no evidence of any leakage through the gloves. The long cuff also offers forearm protection with integrated memory foam.

Fit was very good and riding all day was an absolute breeze with absolutely no feeling of discomfort or annoyance at all. The gloves are adjustable via an adjustment tab on the cuff and also the main wrist strap.

Other nice touches on the Five TFX-2 mid season adventure gloves are the clear vision pad visor-cleaning system on the left-hand side and the Touch Screen system on the index finger for handling and driving electronic devices.

The Five TFX-2 mid season adventure gloves come in two colour options Sand Brown as tested and Black/Grey with sizing available form small through to 3xl. Priced from $199.95 these gloves are a must to check out if you are in the market for a new set of adventure gloves or a mid season touring glove.
