ICON Rimfire Gloves Icon knows you like to ride fast. They know you love to live dangerously. And, like speeding bullet, you always hit your target. The Icon Rimfire Gloves definitely hit theirs. The mix of old-school style with modern protection and a design only Icon 1000 could come up with, these gloves are full throttle cool. Pre-tensioned elastic in the palm reduces bunching. Integrated floating D3O knuckle armor and a cadre of metal palm rivets provide a roadworthy pedigree. The Rimfire is a riding glove that captures the fortitude and grace of a more civilized era. Features: D3O armor in knuckle Abrasion resistant premium grade french cowhide chassis Floating knuckle construction for flexibility Secure wrist closure keeps glove in place Pre-curved palm and finger design Riveted palm has nomex heat-resistant backing

These gloves fit true to size based on the Icon sizing chart and are very comfortable - even straight out of the box before break-in.
THINGS I LIKE: Hands stay cool in >90F degree weather, very comfortable, fits very well, unique styling, seems to have sufficient padding/protection in the right places (I only say seem since I have not tested this feature, thankfully), Nomex behind the rivets. So far the rivets have not torn into my grips as some co-riders have suggested they may.
SOME MINOR THINGS I AM NOT KEEN ON: Some of the stitching is coming lose, one of the stamped Icon symbols on the glove is deformed and some of the rivets on the palm have mis-strikes during installation. Loose stitching is easily fixed with a lighter and the deformed symbol? I chalk it up to giving my gloves that additional character. And the rivets with mis-strikes on them? They seem solidly in place so I am not concerned, although they are no longer as smooth due to the indents from the mis-strikes.
CONCLUSION: I would purchase these gloves again, they are a great deal for under $100 glove. Very comfortable and cool, even when approaching triple digit temperatures. As for the flaws, fundamentally, I classify them to be aesthetic in nature and do not believe they diminish the function of the glove; I tend to be more on the practical side of gear, but these gloves DO look great!
I would recommend for the reasons I and others have stated.
