Womens fingerless gloves

Can anyone advise me of a good pair of summer fingerless gloves that have a good gel patch on the palm and thumb pad?

I like Spesh body geometry.  I go through a pair every couple of years in whatever colour combo they're doing at a particular moment.

I just use the cheap Aldi efforts, but I'm not reliant on the gel for comfort - just grip, sweat-wiping and crash protection.  I only find women's-specific gloves helpful when they have finger length, so the smaller men's sizes are fine for mitts.  I did have a pair of BG full-finger gloves at one point, and they were quite nice.

Aldi ones for me too, and I also don't pay much attention to women's-specific types (except that they're more likely to come in purple than men's ones ::-)). May be more of an issue for people with smaller hands (I generally take a large in Altura women's ones, and a small in men's).

Being long of finger, I find the larger women's gloves a better fit that the equivalent men's, on account of not having a surplus of material around the plam area.  More important on thinner gloves than the chunky winter ones.
