Travel Gadget Review: Driving Gloves from Bionic Gloves

Driving Gloves from Bionic Gloves

Six months ago Bionic Gloves sent me a pair of their driving gloves to review and write about.  Bionic's parent company is famous for making the world famous Louisville Slugger baseball bat and ball gloves.  I never thought I needed driving gloves for my travels but I'm surprised how much I have used them. 

They came in really handy driving in snow and heavy fog in the mountains near Lake Arrowhead California.  During a long trip across the desert to Las Vegas Nevada.  I also used these driving gloves for several other extended drives.

I'm not sure what the effect is, but they feel really good.  Better than just wearing a pair of standard gloves.  As you can see in the photo the palm and fingers are not just flat pieces of leather.  Bionic Gloves calls these "anatomical relief pads" that help reduce hand fatigue and improve comfort.  And I agree that they do help a lot.  These gloves also protect your hands from sun exposure and provide an increased grip on the wheel.

You can find more information on the Bionic Gloves website .  A good video on the site describes the technology behind these gloves.  They are also known for their golf gloves.
