Overall Review:

I have been riding Dakine's Covert glove for several seasons now. Here is my experience with them.

Initial Impressions

I picked these gloves up first in 2015. I was visiting some new biking areas and using Trailforks and my phone a lot more on the trail.  They were advertised as touch screen compatible so I made the purchase.  Dakine has satisfied me with their quality products before so it was easy to go with them again.

Function

The Covert is a pull on glove.  This equals a minimal glove that looks great on and doesn't have any chaffing points on the wrist.  There are small pads on the knuckles.  This does not offer that much protection but it is the perfect amount for a glove you can wear all day even when the weather gets warm.  Dakine put a stretchy material between the fingers that make the glove breathe well.  They dry quickly which is a must for me.

Durability

My first pair lasted me two and a half years.  The screen print came off soon after purchasing them but the gloves have stayed together well.  What made the glove unusable in the end was the wrist area came undone from all the pull ons.  That was after around 370 rides/uses.  They held up to a lot of abuse.  I did not have any really hard hand dragging crashes so I cannot comment on their durability in that arena.

Bottom Line

For $25 (or less if you can snag them on sale) these gloves served me well.  I will be getting them again for sure.
