Shortly after I received these gloves a motorist decided to ignore my turn signal, and zoom past me while I was making a left turn. My bike collided with her car and these gloves took a decent impact from the collision.
The cow hide at the knuckles was damaged a little by the impact, and I slid a little on the rey skin. Nothing made it through the glove, and the impact didn't feel significant.
While maybe not as breathable as I would love, these gloves are exception for protection and water resistance. The GoreTex really helps the hand not to feel sweaty.
I would recommend these to anyone.

Shark Evoline 3 ST Hakka Helmet Sharks masterpiece continues on its evolution. Never has a helmet given you such options between street/road riding, open or full face. Improvements to the Series 3 include Easier manipulation of the chinbar thanks to the Auto-Up system. The unique motion of the Evoline remains unchanged and has become even more natural with the Series3. The Auto-Up system has been simplified - chinbar and main shield are now united in a single movement. Fabrics, finish and style. The interior of the Evoline Series 3 has been totally redesigned and is softer, better and more comfortable. Brand new ventilation design fore and aft. Overall lower weight has been decreased by approximately 200 grams. Features Lexan Polycarbonate shell Shark Easy Fit system for comfortable use with glasses Sharktooth ready Integrated drop down sun shield Removable and washable CoolMax liner ECE 2205 approved with chinbar in both open and closed position ECE 2205 and DOT approved

So I was making a left turn and this lady came trying to force her way around me from behind. You can guess what happened next. I hit her door during the turn, and went down. The Evoline hit the pavement, and kept me from injury, but in the impact the face shield popped off, and the helmet popped open turning from a full face to the 3/4 face format. Don't get this if you expect even partially close to full face protection. It ain't going to happen.
For what it is worth, the impact didn't hurt, and my head and neck are still intact, but I hate to think what could have happened at a different angle, or with a faster rate of travel.
Get this if you want a 3/4 face that cuts wind down on command, not for the protection of a full face helmet. The chin bar is a glorified wind break.
