The award-winning Leather Mitts are a true warm-weather all-rounder. We designed them to look good with anything, to be silky-soft on the hands and to be tough enough to last for years.

If you enjoy taking care of the details, you’ll love the Chapeau! leather mitts. With classic styling to complement any kit selection these gloves are more than mere accessory, engineered to perform to the stresses of riding in any condition.
Constructed in the very best water and sweat resistant Pittards leathers, a soft feel and form fitting sheepskin, the mitts feel as good as they look. Whilst the leather resists the absorption of moisture from rain, sweat and humidity, breathability and comfort are not compromised.
A textured pattern on the palm leather increases grip and provides abrasion resistance with 3D meshed palm for extra comfort and increased air flow.
Finished with extra-soft binding around the thumb at the all important contact point, these mitts are going to become to your cycling like a hand to a glove.
We wore the gloves all Summer and found the best way to take them off was to place the opposite thumb inside the palm and effectively roll the gloves off then turn right side out when off the hand.
For our leather mitts taking extra care will help to extend their life. A good leather conditioner can help to keep the leather supple as washing can damage it.
1: Use lukewarm water and mild soap to gently wash the glove (we've found wearing the glove allows you to keep its shape and make cleaning easier).
2: Gently pat the mitt dry with a towel to remove excess water.
3: Once the majority of the water has been removed then put the gloves on to give them shape, and then gently remove them. Make sure they are laid flat.
4: Hang to air dry away from heat or direct sunlight. From previous experience putting them on a towel rail makes them kind of unusable
5: You can also gently rub a good leather conditioner into the leather to help keep it supple. This is however optional and not something we've had to do yet.
NOTE: Never dry clean, bleach or tumble dry! We've learnt the hard way!
