Icon Compound Mesh Short Gloves The Compound Mesh Shorty is all businessin a wrist-length package. Built of a durable mesh chassis and neoprene flex panels, both the fit and function of the Compound is beyond reproach. Add in dual compound main knuckle armor, finger armor and a Battlehide goatskin palm and the results are clear. Compound your expectations from a mesh riding glove. Features Abrasion resistant premium grade Battlehide goatskin palm and finger gussets Padded double layer abrasion zone palm construction Pre-curved palm and finger design Thermoplastic knuckle Embossed neoprene flex panels in critical areas Hi-flow backhand mesh for ventilation

I have had a hard time finding a pair of street gloves that fit right. I am a perfect Medium in Shift motocross gloves, but they have a little more stretch at the opening than most street gloves. Alpinestar's in size Large were difficult to put on and were too tight around the palm. I tried the A-stars XL and the palm almost felt the same, but the fingers were too long. After hearing that the Icon gear is sized more "American," I tried these gloves in a Large. Overall, the fit is nice. Palm is not too tight and not too loose. However, the fingers are too long and catch on my levers whenever I reach for the brake or clutch. I think I have enough room in the palm (and the leather should stretch a bit over time) to move down to a Medium.
