I purchased these gloves to replace my old Dainese Hellfire Evo's that I loved. I was looking for a similar fit, protection and comfort in my next glove and I went with the Pro Carbons. The fit is very similar to my old gloves - just a tough larger, but as it breaks in it should be perfect. The elasticated panels work great and right out of the box they felt 'just right.' Leather is soft, 1 piece, and has just the right amount of added protection panels. Glad this glove can get me through daily touring as well as an anticipated track day.
The knuckle protection stays right where I want it and the padding (palm and gauntlet) seems better - thicker - than my old ones - yet I had no trouble fitting it under my jacket sleeve for the rain.
I have very short pinkys - and the additional protection on the pinky doesn't bind or chafe... my main consideration when buying gloves. I'm usually a large in all gloves and so I was with these as well.
I haven't yet been on the bike with 'em thanks to the snow - but wearing them around the house has proven a great tactile feel and sensitivity that I wanted. Thick gloves suck for signaling, horn, GPS use, ect.
Primary use intended is 3-season and I can't wait to try them out. I'll update my review after my 1st ride.
