    Excellent Glove

    I wanted a pair of quality winter gloves that aren't too bulky for me to feel my controls, that didn't break the bank, and wouldn't fall apart after the first couple rides like my last ones did. I got these last fall, it's now late spring and they've done what I expected. They look nice, material and stitching are quite good, and they're even armored. Use of the controls was not as perfect as with my summer gloves, but I could still easily feel the tiny controls on my old '87 XL600 dual-sport, which is far better than most winter gloves. I have short fat fingers and though tight, generally wear a size med because I hate bunching at the tip of my fingers. They are true to size. I ordered both sizes L and M just in case, and ended up keeping the medium. While trying the size L, an old lady was coming at me in my lane and I couldn't even find the horn in time because the bunching in the finger tips. That day they were packed and shipped back. Please note that these gloves are a trade-off. Below about 45F can get uncomfortable for anything but short local rides. I added silk liners but all they did was make the gloves much easier to take on/off, which was worth it on it's own, but didn't really help with the cold. I pleasure ride in the pacific northwest (Portland, OR). Gloves do not leak. Rain showers are a part of life here, but I avoid heavy rain. I made several 4-6 hour rides while the roads were still iced over. Don't do this in these gloves unless you can take the pain. Many stops to warm hands over warm motor. For me tactile feedback wins over comfort at temps below 45F. If you are a daily commuter, you might want a different glove. Overall very satisfied with quality, features and price.
