These Gloves are like Motocross gloves on steroids! I had been looking for a short cuff gloves to wear under the sleeves of my Klim Badlands Pro jacket. Those sleeves are LONG and it's tough to get a long cuff glove under them. I tried so many different gloves and I felt these were just awesome! I usually wear a size 9 in Held gloves. So I went with the large Rukka Vauhti gloves and the fit was almost perfect--the thumbs a just a bit long. The material allows for great dexterity and makes the gloves very comfortable. There was almost no break in time. The padding behind the Super-fabric is much softer than my Held gloves. So far I have worn these in temps ranging from 40-67F and my hands felt fine. At 67F my hands were almost too hot! While they do breathe a little but the Gore-tex stops any air from flowing through them. Overall, I think these are great. Just don't expect them to replace your summer gloves. Think Spring-Fall-mild winter. Although, along with my Hippo Hands I'll be wearing these all winter!

I want to first start off by thanking Anthony for doing such a great review. Really, no one does reviews like Revzilla.
Anyway, after being a long time Aerostich fan, I wanted something different. The Badlands Pro jacket fit the bill! While this is a heavy jacket, once you put it on it almost feels weightless. This jacket just feels so comfortable and safe when you put it on. I have wore it down to 50 degrees with only a T-shirt underneath. My only complaint is that it is expensive and has way too many logos on it.

fits great. also it has great ventilation. after reading mixed reviews about the visor, i decided to try one out.
on my 07 bmw 1200 gsa the visor is fine under 80mph. after that it starts to vibrate a little. great helmet!
