Since I splurged on my new head protection, the kuripot in me felt that I needed to off set the money spent by saving on other areas of protection.
I was looking around my favorite hardware when I saw these affordable half finger bike gloves.
The top mesh provides good protection from the sun while letting my hands/palms breathe.
The underside provides good grip and absorbs sweat well. I should know as I have sweaty palms.
There are also small reflective strips on each knuckle that provides added visibility during night rides.
I got them for only 180 pesos at Ace Hardware. 🙂
