Glad I read other reviews before buying these as they definitely run small! I ordered mediums instead of small and they are perfect. The only thing that bothers me a little bit is that I specifically bought these because it was getting cold, and they don't really keep my fingertips warm unless it's like 8-10 degrees (celcius!)
But overall I really like them! Plus they're so nice that when they arrived and my non biker friend saw them, she immediately placed an order as well!
So they dont offer much protection... just the palms.. the airflownis great. My favorite gloves, but can only use in summer. They were tight at first.. but after break in.. ooohh these gloves just feel so good! A little pricey for what you get.. i have the older red color and paid 1/3 of the price... best $10 i ever spent.. now its fall and cold... i miss wearing these.
I got these as my first pair of gloves when i was riding on the back of my father's bike. I got them in a medium and at first they felt fine, but as i started to ride my own bike i realized they were way too tight. Every time i would take them off after any length of riding, i had indents in both hands no matter where my hands were or how tightly i was holding on. I also noticed that they offered little in terms of wind breaking. My hands were frequently getting cold from the wind even though it was a nice warm temperature. I wore them for about 2 years before i got new ones, which i am extremely happy with.
