Good quality grips?

Well I've done some proper testing on my Raleigh Chiltern now, made a few tweaks and got it to a useable standard.

One thing im really struggling with is that it still has original plastic handlebar grips which make my hands numb within about 15 minutes.

I want to put some good quality, comfortable grips on it but don't have the foggiest what's good and what isn't.

Any advice hugely welcome.

    Good quality foam grips such as Avenir, Titec, KCNC or Ritchey, they are nicely shaped, vibration absorbing and last well. Also nice and light and not to expensive.

    My Avenirs have been on my commuter for about 7000 miles now and I use Ritchey on my MTB.
