Man-made fibres may not offer the lovely feel of leather, but they last longer and cost half the price
12 new synthetic gloves that could warrant a place in your bag.
Some tour pros go through four leather gloves in a single round, especially in warm, sweaty conditions. But for the rest of us, who need to pay for our gloves, synthetic versions can be a much sounder investment. Synthetics are generally cheaper, last longer and perform better in muggy or damp conditions. Picking one that offers a decent amount of grip, along with a great fit and feel and sound life expectancy without a wallet-busting price tag, can be a challenge. Here are 12 of our favourites.
