The picture above shows a glove lined with Schoeller Keprotec. What is this mysterious fabric? Simply put, this fabric provides extra abrasion and tear resistance in gear. Read all about these properties here.
If you find yourself contemplating why you should spend more than $40 for the plain leather gloves, or the $100 pair lined with Schoeller, hopefully that will convince you to spend a little more. :)
