The negative reviews say it all about this product and I should have listened to what they had to say. However, I bought the product anyway. Why? The description by Anthony made me belief that I was purchasing a great product. I should have been more careful, the product looks good on Revzilla's website, however, just like everyone stated the gloves do break at the seems very quickly. I bought the gloves on May 31, 2014, today is June 29, 2014 and yes people, they have already torn at the seems. Now, you are probably asking - how many time have you used the glove and what kind of ridding do you do? Great questions; I ride a sport touring bike and I used the gloves 4 times, before they tore. So as you can plainly read, you need to stay away from this gloves. I am glad that they are not the only pair of gloves I own. So what is next? I will call Revzilla and see if their customer service is as good as they claim on the website. Folks, you can go ahead and make the same mistake that I made and get the gloves, however, I would suggest that you find another pair of gloves that has a better rating from other reviewers. I hope this review is helpful.

As all Dainese, the gloves are great looking, and they have many safety options at this price range. Make sure you have the fit correct, as in my case they were a bit smaller than expected.
In the video it states that they are true to size (XL in my case), however, they were a bit smaller.
I would still recommend the gloves as sizing is more a personal choice as to what fits well on your hands!!!!!
Yes, I recommend this product.
