Default Richa gloves - issues

Have a pair of Richa GTX gloves 6 months now....second pair in fact. Great gloves however this latest pair have noticed the inside lining separating at the seams - gloves have gone back to the shop to be sent away for "analysis". Anybody experienced issues with Richa?

I have seen good performance from Richa gloves. My Cold Protect GTX
are almost four years old and still in very good condition. I don't wear them
every day because I have a pair of Lidl (Crivit) gloves for everyday hacking.

The missus has a pair of Richa Carbon Winter gloves. They still
look like new after three years of occasional use.

I haven't had much success with Richa textiles. Two pairs of trousers
(Everest and Esker) leaked like a sieve.

Jacket zipper pull tab thing broke after two weeks of normal use. Inner membrane zipper broke about 1.5 years.
Pants crotch after the same time now has, lets say, extra venting. Leg velcro is a bit so so no
Boots? Hole in the sole, soles separanted, both bursted to the front sides. Ended up with a zip tie and superglue. The waterproof membrane but I think the zipper leaked in some places.

Overall I find them fair value for money if you are gentle with usage.

Glad you got sorted. Hopefully, this was an isolated issue. Please let
us know how you get on with the new ones.
