Fit is small but ok when riding, great features. The Motorcycle Superstore is the best online store.
Decent short glove

Despite the product description, these gloves do have a small amount of real leather on the bottom of the pinkie and ring fingers and that side of the palm. Don’t know why Alpinestars put the leather there or why they used such a small amount of it and didn’t note it in their description, but they did. Otherwise they fit really well and might protect in a lower speed crash. Just feels like they need some reinforcement in the palm near the thumb.

Been looking forever for gloves that are cool, but protect. I finally found them.
Great Gloves, for a couple months

As stated, gloves run a little small... I would normally wear a XL, and these are way to tight. I thought they would stretch, but nope... Also, after a couple months of weekly riding, the Velcro on the wrist doesn't stay anymore..
Seams ripped in 2 months

I had this glove for about 2 months. The stitching that joins the cloth and leather at the web between the thumb and index finger went loose. The Velcro that keeps the glove on your wrist isn't very well designed either. It would always come loose when riding.

like the way they fit the only thing that has happened is the pull tab to help put them on has already ripped off of the right hand glove. i also like the fast service got the in two days.
Good fit, comfort.

It came out of the box with a small frayed part on the thumb, despite being brand new. I'm also noticing a few spots where you can see thread sticking out. I've used it for 2 weeks now, so I'm hoping these don't fall apart. They are great gloves, and a nice fit, but again, I'm hoping that the thread doesn't loosen up.

way way small so get size larger. They look well-made but too new for me to tell, I have many years riding and like the overall make. If you have large hands or thick fingers u r going to need 2 sizes up. I have normal-to-small hands & needed large, and still breaking them in. Love the look & finish of these.
Nice gloves when you break em' in

Overall these are nice gloves. When you wear them you'll feel protected. As soon as you put them on they feel a little tight against the knuckles, and for the first couple of rides with them you sort of think you should have bought something different. However after a few rides they begin to feel more and more comfortable. I'm glad a bought these. Great style and great protection.

Overall great gloves. Perfect blend of protection and comfort/flexibility. Size runs a little small and after a couple weeks the mesh material at the end of both thumbs has started to fray.
