It's interesting. Gauntlets are becoming less available than they once were. The Europian (and racing crowd) is leaning towards glove in jacket over jacket in glove lately. This was discussed in a recent motorcycle magazine. One of the reasons being the racers are having more crashes with their hands behind them than in front (remember the studded palms that all but went away?). Problem is, you have to have a jacket that is made for that style glove.
Me... I prefer a gauntlet almost always. But, they are getting harder to find.
