Right out of the box I was impressed with these gloves. The overall look and feel is very nice; I love the style and the quality seems very good. I was looking for a nice full gauntlet race glove with the protection that would make me feel confident at the track but wasn't ridiculously expensive, and that is exactly what I got. Originally I ordered the Scorpion SG3 gloves, however I was disappointed in the overall look and feel of the gloves: the stitching looked sloppy, there were several loose threads and they just looked and felt cheap in my opinion, not to mention uncomfortable. I was really hoping that these gloves weren't going to be similar in that regard, so I was very pleased when I first put them on. They were comfortable right away and the protection seems very substantial: I really like the two palm sliders, and frankly, even higher end Alpinestars and Dainese gloves don't have these, I don't know why. As far as durability goes, I can't really say for sure because I have only had them for about a week and haven't even had a chance yet to ride in them because of all the snow, but they seem like they would hold up pretty well, I hope they do because they look great. Overall they seem like a lot of glove for $150. As a side note, I wear a medium in Alpinestars gloves and ordered a small in these and they fit perfectly, just a bit snug, which is what you want in a leather gloves that will inevitably stretch.
Yes, I recommend this product.
