Nothing quite says ‘Merica like some good old camouflage. Making a name for themselves with bold colors and wild designs, Handup Gloves is continuing on the path to manual domination with additional designs rather than completely new models. According to company owner Cody Wallis, Handup was started to combat the rising cost and complexity of most mountain bike gloves.

Harnessing design inspiration from his motocross racing days, Handup gloves are meant to be simple with no padding and a slip on design. That results in a glove that will protect your hand, provide adequate grip on the bike, and won’t slip on the post ride beverages either – all at an affordable price.

Since the basic design of the glove remains unchanged, Handup is free to concentrate on fun new designs that may or may not include camouflage…

Joining the ranks of camouflage offerings from Handup, the new Green/Orange Camo ‘Merican Will be sold alongside the Grey Digi Camo gloves. All Handup gloves use a four way stretch, light weight mesh on the back of the hand which is mated to a single layer Clarino leather palm. Along with laser cut ventilation holes, the palms include huge silicone printed graphics which form a single image when the two hands are placed together à la College football.

The gloves use a stretch cuff for Velcro-less security and offer a large absorbent sweat cloth on the thumb to help keep things dry. Like every pair of Handup gloves, the camo ‘Merican models sell for $26 in small through extra large.

Also new to the range is the Reeb model which should be popular with anyone who likes good beer. With Oskar Blues on the palms and their Reeb bike brand on the tops, the Reeb gloves take things an extra step with a tiny little rider in silicone on the index finger for added grip. Like the other gloves in the line, you can put on a pair of Reebs for $26. Distributed through Torcano Industries.

Nothing more American than China made gloves that say “Merica”

I have been using their blue “mug glove” for a while now and love them! They’re the perfect lightweight layer for brisk mornings, and offer fantastic grip on the hoods of my ‘cross bike. Also great for grabbing beers. CHEERS!

Where are these made? If these are not made in the USA, shame on REEB, given their stance on US sourced and made goods.
As for “merica”. Always thought this was poking fun at an American subculture and not really a way of honoring a country.

“merica” is not a country but a “ontinent”. “nited tates f merica” would be more precise! By the way, nice affordable gloves, love it! Take that Kitsbow!

I can’t be the only one that is still perplexed by the idea of spending money on gloves in which their strongest selling point is the palm graphics.

Are these really made in China?

And who is wearing their riding gloves to drink post-ride?

Bought a pair of the stars and bars a couple months ago. Here is what I can say about them,

Awesome fit, and very comfortable.
Love the design, as well get a lot of riders on the trails asking where I got them.
Because of the amount of silicone, they stick to my grips, minimizing the amount of effort in gripping the grip.

For me, best pair of gloves i’ve ever bought!

Nice look’n gloves. Did you know most American flags are made in China, oh the irony. Can you imagine going to work every day to make Chinese flags all day long? Boy, did they see us coming……..

These are perfect in every way. Pure win. I’d be disappointed if they were not made in China or someplace outside

97% of the bike industry is made in Asia. Either start your own domestic Co, or get over it.
