These are nice warm weather gloves. I went up a size and they fit great. Very comfortable and they look good. They're fairly light and thin, so they probably won't stand up for heavy use, but they are just what I need for riding in the heat. And at a great price. Excellent value overall.
I bought these to replace the Joe Rocket Phoenix pants I've used for 13 years that finally wore out - by the way, they had a plastic clip closure that worked very well. I was impressed by the fit and the finish (except the snaps) on the new pants, but I find it hard to believe that Joe Rocket hasn't addressed the problem with the ineffective snap buttons that don't stay done up. When I tried the pants on, I found the buttons would pop open with any movement I made even though they fit well in all other aspects. I was leaving on a 2 week ride a few days after the pants arrived, so I didn't have time to send them back for a refund or exchange. I hand stitched a buttonhole and button to keep the pants from falling down around my knees and set off on the ride. Throughout the 2 weeks, the "popping button snaps" were a constant source of frustration any time I tried to move, but I was able to salvage my dignity because of the button I'd sown on. After returning from the trip, I researched the snap button problem on the internet and tried tapping the "male snap" with a hammer to make it fit tighter. This provided a partial solution as the snaps don't pop open quite as easily but they are also much more difficult to close.
