As far as I know BTP is no longer in business and has not been for more than a year, so it may be difficult to find them.

Thanks for that! Their website is still up and looks like you can still do orders through it?

I've been using my hoods for around a year, and they've survived fine. They're obviously delicate weenie stuff, but I like them.

^ agree. Light, delicate and stain quite easily but LIGHT <------note.....they're light!!
Good if you have small hands btw....I like the fit. I have a couple of pairs but generally just leave on what ever I last fitted as they aren't the most flexible. I'll fit the uber light felt hoods weenieracer made me on next rebuild, not these. They can be recoated with spray-able plastidip most likely, so longevity could be enhanced if you chose to do maintenance.
(some btp parts are available from Dulight .fr still, I think :) )
