I have been buying these gloves for years now. And the reason being, I love the palm pad it has for handlebar vibration. Very few gloves have palm coverage as vast as these. And they give a Great snug fit and not as bulky as other gloves are. All they need is to be broken in like and leather does. The only con is that they start to tear at about 6-8 months (which has to do with how often you wear them). But I don't mind buying a new pair every 6-8 months because they're are not expensive gloves either. So for the comfort, feel, fit and finish, it's worth it!!! I give them a 3.5 to 4 out of 5.
At first the index fingers and thumbs were a bit long, but they're fine now after using for a few days, weird. I had Olympia Sports warm gloves way back, wanted to try different brands, but now back to these and they already feel better. I'm also been using OS winter gloves for about 7 years now, and they are great.
Was looking for a short ventilated leather glove with no fabric and these fit my XL sixed hands perfectly though a little tight through the palm, didn't need the gel palm but was a nice bonus. Good construction these should last for years but I only do about 20K a year
Medium size - left glove was perfect; right glove was waaaaaaaaaaay too small (tooooo late to return...)
SECOND ORDER - I ordered a LARGE pair - very snug; after a month, they are now comfortable.
Plastic studs have sharp corners ... just be aware.
i've had this model for about 3 years now. like other olympia models, i am not disappointed. the large size fit perfectly. it has a very good grip. breathes well, so that even when the temp hits 90, it is still comfortable to have on. like others have said here, below maybe 55, i would start to look for warmer gloves; these breathe just too well. liked them so much, i am about to buy another pair, to be sure i have a pair when these do finally wear out!
