Just got these gloves today, out of the box they look sleek and feel nice. About me: I'm in the process of getting all my riding gear before I get my first motorcycle, these Fieldsheers are the first thing I bought.
I know these gloves have excellent air flow because I have sweaty palms when wearing other gloves and my hands are completely dry after 10 minutes of wearing these.
It seems my left phalanges are shorter than my right because my right glove fits perfectly but the left fingers don't reach the end. My fault, not the gloves.
There is decent padding over the knuckles, over the wrist bone, bottom-inner palms, and the outside-middle of the pinkies. I thrashed my limp hand up against the edge of a wall to see how effective they are and, well it hurt. The knuckle padding is solid but the others seem useless to me, not cumbersome though. However, there are some weird diamond-shaped thin leather padding above the nails that are completely useless. The gloves are pre-curved.
The leather feels nice, seems like a decent quality, still not use to the bulky feeling of them. The tips of the fingers on the gloves seem squared and the space between index and thumb is semi-webed in that you can't open your palms completely. Velcro wrist strap is nice.
For $45 I would have like more padding in the wrist and side as well as less clutter to allow better hand dexterity. also a more narrow "finger tunnel." I don't have sausage like fingers (I think). They are a bit on the small side so I won't be trading for a medium.
RevZilla was great with shipping(free) and I feel confident buying again.
