<p><strong>We loved the original Striker glove, circa 2013. We also loved the Striker 2, which lasted a few seasons before mysteriously going missing in early 2018.</strong></p><p><strong>The third in a series of anything can signal desperation. But in this case, the Striker 3 represents the steady culmination of tweaks and, sure, maybe a few factory changes, that together result in what—for yet another season—makes this one of the best vented summer gloves we’ve ever stuffed a hand in.</strong></p><p>But why exactly did REVIT make a Striker 3, which is pretty much indistinguishable from the Striker 2? Who cares.</p><p>We’ve got this summer favorite in stock right now, in both men’s and women’s, in full size runs. And they’re fan-freaking-tastic for flowing air between the, ahem, <strong><em><a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fourchette">fourchettes</a></em></strong>. Just spread your fingers on the bars a little and fresh air rushes right on in. On the highway, they’re like testing the termperature of a cold pool. And even in the city, the provide wanted relief. Perhaps as well as any vented summer glove we’d carry.</p><p>Note: there are plenty of crap mesh gloves with no armor and questionable provenance that we politely pass on carrying.</p><br><p>But the Striker 3 is no slouch in the protection department. In a notable upgrade between the original and the Striker 2, this <em>threequell</em> retains the supple “SeeSoft” knuckle armor of some other gloves in the REVIT lineup, notably the <strong><a href="http://uniongaragenyc.com/shop/motorcycle-gloves/revit-summit-3-h2o-gloves">Summit 3</a></strong> waterproof gauntlet. This is definitely the softest of the SeeSoft family—totally different material than the SeeSoft brand protectors. It also gets a double-goatskin, temperfoam-padded palm protector.</p><p>Throw in touch-friendly fingertip, a little reflective accent detailing, and not-too-obnoxious logos, it’s a winner. Pay no heed to the fact it’s all-black – that just makes it all the more perfect NYC city summer glove. Or any city where you’re not looking to sweat through your fourchettes.</p><p>This glove excels as a city glove, on the open road, or far from it, in the dirt. This glove is not super-short, but definitely not anywhere near gauntlet-length. Just long enough to avoid sunburnt wrists for those with a <strong><a href="http://www.ape-index.com/">positive ape index</a></strong>.</p><p>The only thing it’s missing is a hard palm slier, like we’ve seen in another summer favorite – the <strong><a href="http://uniongaragenyc.com/shop/motorcycle-gloves/racer-guide-glove">Racer Guide Glove</a>.</strong> But for the relatively lower price tag and slim, supple feel on the bars, this threepeat remains an eternal summer favorite.</p><p><em>* FIT NOTE: These run true to size on the trim side, like most Euro brands. If ever between standard S/M/L gloves sizes, go up a size.</em></p>
