If you have extra large hands, these gloves are an amazing value. I have large hands with extra long fingers so these fit OK, not perfect, but I can make them work. If I had xxl palms fit would have been better.
For the price of some throw away mesh you have gloves with a huge feature set and durability to last for years not a season. They are not as cool as mesh, but are pretty good and offer a ton more protection
Yes, I recommend this product.

I ride a FJR in Seattle, commuting on often wet, often bad roads. The prior PR3s impress me so much I thought I would never reccomend anything else. These PR4s seem to turn in quicker and hold a mean lean as well as the the PR3s. I got over 12K on both front and rear on the PR3s (the centers were flattening, but the grip was still better they had a right to be). So the idea of a even longer threadlife is just sweet!
Yes, I recommend this product.

Got these to replace a great pair of tourmaster boots that disinegrated after 2 years full time commuter use.
These don't fit nearly as well. Toe box puts pressure on top of big toe,yet is baggy at top of foot. Boot is too thick to easily use shifter as presently set up.
Hope they break-in and/or I adapt.
These are size 47, so smaller sizes may be OK.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Light weight shoe. Feel like a atheletic shoe, but with real world protection. Size was spot on.

Oblivious Higher quality materials and construction. Initially felt stiff (I mean like Tin Man stiff), for walking around, but still was comfortable for riding. This was especially true with the liner in. The liner does make it a warm jacket though.
After some days wear it seems to be losing its stiffness and the liner is softening (Or I am adjusting to it).
I am 6' 2", 210lb., 45" chest. Ordered the 46.
