I'm quite pleased with this glove for touring. They keep you quite warm, and well-protected. After my last crash, I now ensure every glove has some outer-palm protection (ask me why).
My few gripes:
* Slightly chilly at mid-40F, 50+mph, >30 min. (otherwise perfect under different variables; e.g., 50F, <50mph, <30mins.) Other group riders suffered worse.
* Actually can get stifling at over 50F.
*I nner liner shifts at higher temps (likely due to sweat), making putting on about 2x as long as say, non-insulated non-gauntlets
Those gripes are minor overall, but I thought I should note them. I have had these in rain and they performed fine. No apparent leakage.
I love Spidi gear. Their fit works well for me (thin-atheletic). The retro and collaboration gear they make are stunning.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is a true-fit jean, except of course the extra length they've added to accommodate motorcycle riders. These are 32 and fit me exactly, as well as a 34 in. length (which is about 3" too long for my 30-31 legs). The fit is slim to regular, and a little more wide at the openings for boots (but thankfully not a flared boot-cut).
It's not as apparent, but there is a soft-patch area in the knees to allow hook-and-look stuck on to some knee pads for extra impact protection.
Yes, I recommend this product.
