These fantastic gloves with great styling that will be good for cruising around town in a variety of weather conditions. I wore them in 80+ weather and the amount of cooling was more than adequate, they won't flow as much as mesh gloves will but that's the trade off for the added protection the leather provides.
The wrist strap can tighten up to go under under the sleeves of just about any jacket but they also be worn over (they fit fine over my RS-Taichi).
I own a pair of A* GP+ for which I had to go one size up and these seem to be cut the same way, so I'd recommend you go one size up than your regular glove size.

Yes, I recommend this product.

Rather than wearing my track SMX+ on the streets I decide to look for a more comfortable riding shoes, the styling and amount of protection put these at the top of my list.
They offer great styling and lots of protection features (ankle, heel, too box and sliders), the sense of protection is undeniable once you have them on your feet.
Now on to the not-so-good
Right out the box they offer a good snug fit but after walking around in them I quickly realized that no amount of stretching would fix the issue I was having. It could be the shape of my foot but the combination of the leather that covers the laces and the reinforced toe box pinched the top of my foot every time I took a step. The discomfort was pronounced enough to defeat the purpose of wearing these as supposed to my more protective SMX+.
I've returned the Dyno and went with the Asphalt and am I glad I did! They offer the just about the same amount of protection as the Dyno minus the toe sliders (which makes 'em look more like regular shoes). You can't go wrong with either these or the Asphalt, both offers lot of protection and styling, it all comes down to the shape of your foot.
