Icon Pursuit Perforated Gloves Fits like a glove... Youve heard it a thousand times, so have we. What actually defines how a glove should fit We think the new standard is Icons Pursuit glove. Supple sheepskin leather conforms to your hand. Plastic knuckle armor for protection, but hidden for a refined look. All over perforation for all day comfort. Reinforced goatskin palm to combat those nasty encounters with the asphalt. Try it on for yourself and then decide. This is what a glove was meant to be. Pittards sheepskin chassis for great fit Goatskin leather palm overlay for durability Integrated knuckle armor for protection Secure wrist closure keeps the glove in place Expansion gussets to improve overall flexibility Snap to keep gloves together while not in use

These are terrific gloves! They are extremely comfortable - the parallel that immediately came to mind was they felt as comfy as Cabretta leather golf gloves. Unfortunately, that means they seem quite thin but for the price, I wasn't expecting a heavy duty race glove. I can't speak to the durability yet but it seems an additional layer of leather wouldn't hurt. A final point worth making is that the cuff is not only short but low profile too. It fits perfectly with my Dainese Razon jacket. The same cant be said for other gloves I tried.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I purchased the RST Silver only to find out after the fact that it is not 100% UV resistant. I would still recommend this product simply because it does provide better protection to sunlight than the clear lens however I was disappointed to see that the lens did not offer 100% UV protection.
I expect a helmet to provide me with the utmost in protection and when I buy a full-face with a tinted visor, my expectation is protection not only in the event of a crash but also against harmful rays (which is the primary reason why I bought the tinted visor in the first place).

Dainese Razon Leather Jacket The road flashing beneath your saddle, the wide open spaces of the prairie, the pulsing of the pistons you can feel in your arms and everywhere else as sunlight glints off the engine chrome, and choppers riding in formation roar down the road. Constructed in leather that is both thick and soft at the same time, the Razon jacket combines innovative technical solutions like patented Microelastic inserts with the essential style and strong character of the bikers who wear it. Provided with removable composite protectors, ventilation, and removable thermal lining, this jacket is also available in a Women's version. Protection Composite protectors certified to Standard EN1621.1/97 Ergonomics and Comfort Microelastic elasticated inserts Inserts in elasticated fabric Neck adjustment Waist adjustment Jacket-trousers fastening system Air inlets on the chest Removable thermal liner Sanitized lining Other Pocket for G1 and G2 back protector Pocket on removable liner 2 outside pockets Internal pocket

Fit: I'm 5'8, 200 lbs. I wear size 42 suit jackets. Waist size 36 for jeans, 38 for dress pants. My size in this jacket is 54.
The waist on this jacket is a bit snug, even when compared to other Dainese model (Avro textile, for instance).
The front armpit seems are somewhat constricting. Not enough to restrict bloodflow but enough to notice. I'm hoping the leather will break in and stretch out a bit.
Ventilation is good - I was riding this past weekend in 11-Celsius weather and had the close the vents. How well it will fare it warmer weather is yet to be seen.
Warmth: solid. Wore it with the liner, a t-shirt and a thin merino wool sweater and was just right (again, 11-Celsius weather = 52F).
The leather is amazing, the style is classic yet somewhat aggressive and the details are sweet (reflective logos, zippers, gaiters, snaps, etc).
The style will go with any kind of bike - perfect for a newbie rider like me who isn't sure what style of bike I'll end up with long-term. For now it's a Suzuki Bandit but I bought this jacket knowing it'll look just as good on a Bonneville or a Sportser.
Minor complaint: asymmetrical armor should be labeled left and right. I removed the pads without paying attention to which side was which... Not the end of the world but for a company priding itself on the small details, this is one you'd think they would've addressed.
Overall solid jacket that is worth a full 5/5 if it were sub-$400.
Yes, I recommend this product.
