I choose these gloves for wearing in dry cold weather, but i got caught in a soaking rain and they performed very well. My hands were always dry and warm, the gloves didn't took much time to dry later.
The styling is awesome, they are good with leather(icon chapter jacket), adventure(alpinestars lucerne) and tech-touring(Klim Latitude). Let's not kid ourselves, if you are spending this much on a pair of gloves, you do care about how you look on wheels.
The cuffs can cause some problems if you need to wear them in the sleeves of a jacket. the woven part should be inside and the textile part should be over the jacket and sometimes it could be a difficult process depending on the jacket.Other than that i am pretty happy with these gloves.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I had the V35 side cases on my NC700X for over 2000 miles. I usually commute and did some touring with my wife. The installation is easy and the looks are good. I had a small crash and my bike landed on one side. Since there is a colored plate part that can be changed with screws, just change the plate, voila no crash marks.
You don't feel like there's 70 litres of side cases when you are commuting or touring both from weight and aerodynamic perspectives.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I have 2012 Honda NC700X, have installed V47 with V35 side cases. Now my bike has a total of 117 litres of luggage. I have done some trips with my wife and very happy with these products. V47 takes two full size helmets, you don't need to carry your helmets when you get off the bike while commuting in the city. Installation is very easy and easy to put on and take off the cases. Original Honda cases needs some cutting (really cutting) for installation of racks, these don't. You just bolt on the racks.
Had a little difficulty when getting on the bike with the sidecases, but it's no deal breaker. When commuting and lane splitting you almost forgot you have 117 litres of luggage on the bike.
Definitely the best option for cases on NC700X.
Yes, I recommend this product.
