For the Storm glove SixSixOne have concentrated on creating a nice thin palm, made from Pittard’s Digital Leather. They’ve made sure the whole glove offers good insulation too though, and so far this pair has fended off the worst of the winter conditions.
The snot wipe is in the usual place and there’s added Neoprene over the knuckles. The Pittard’s palm is quite sticky, so there’s a good amount of control when your grips are wet. The general fit is good too, although the forefinger was a bit too long and the extra material got in the way of reaching for the levers at times.
