These gloves have ample padding in all the right places and are well put together. I can see these gloves lasting for a long time.
The glove size to hand measurements was spot on. I got an XL and they fit great.
The reason for 4 stars was I had a huge blister on my left hand under my ring finger where you get callouses. It may have been because my hands are not used to riding, but I thought wearing gloves would prevent blisters.
I still love them because of all the padding they provide while still having a slim fit.
