Alpinestars SMX-2 Air Carbon Gloves - 2011 version With carbon protection and motocross inspired styling and comfort, the Alpinestars SMX2 Air Carbon glove makes an excellent choice for summer motorcycle riding. Utilizing an advanced leather and mesh hybrid construction, Alpinestars SMX-2 Air Carbon Glove offers the street rider superior comfort and performance while the carbon fiber knuckle and Clarino reinforced palm ensures high levels of protection. Lightweight hybrid leather and mesh upper construction offers the ideal combination of durability, abrasion resistance and comfort. Synthetic leather palm construction with Clarino reinforcements provides extra durability and protection where it is needed most. Reinforced landing zone with built in foam padding offers additional impact protection Sizing Note If you are in between sizes order a size larger, in RevZilla's experience these gloves fit slightly small.

I got this glove because I was looking for a combination of protection, style, and comfort in the Florida heat. I've had them for almost a year now and all I can say is it was an excellent purchase. The fit was a little small in my case, but Revzilla was incredibly helpful and quick about sending me the next size up at no cost. I've even had them save my knuckles in a ~40mph mishap and still use the pair today. Also while they are not waterproof, I haven't had any issues with shrinkage or wear and tear due to the frequent showers I get caught in down here either.
My only observation is that like some other customers have cited the sticky tack at the end of the digits to help grab things basically wears away within a month, but it's more a minor convince than a hindrance. They're already tactile enough I don't have problems fishing my keys or phone out of my pockets when I have them on. Long story short, if you want lightweight and comfortable gloves to wear in warm weather, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better pair!
Yes, I recommend this product.

I live in Florida, where I wanted a mesh jacket that would flow easy and not be too heavy on the wallet. I picked this up, and though it was a little snug It functioned well. I started having issues with the zipper about two weeks in, with it sticking at mid chest where the ICON logo is. But if I pulled it down and zipped it up again it would work. Until today, after owning this jacket for only 4 months, the entire zipper pull has come off the zipper. So basically I am either looking at having this thing fixed by a tailor or seeing what the return or exchange policy is. Overall I like the jacket, but you can certainly see why it's less than $200.
