Lasted in decent shape for about 4 years. Three different cities: Long Beach, CA for about 75% of my time with them, Texarkana, TX for 6 months (which is where they really deteriorated), then about 3 months in Vancouver, WA. Picked "yes" under "recommend" because they are fine for warm climate places. But "no" for cold climates.
Definitely not for any type of cold weather. Had to wear mittens underneath them to help, (decent for 60f, but still near frostbite pain in 50f). Holes formed at around...Spring or Summer 2015 in one glove. Then formed rapidly on the other glove in Fall 2015 (I think it was the TX cold).
I suppose the price is decent for not falling apart for first three years. But at this price, it should stand better in cold weather I think.
I only just bought a new pair last week: Rev-it kryptonite gloves. Definitely can tell the quality difference. But will save a review on that until I break them in.
Rides: 2007 Yamaha YZF-R6
Yes, I recommend this product.
