Great value for the build quality and protection. All the sticking is consistent and looks top notch.
The finger deflection and protections is all there, but feels very comfortable. The only drawback is that after hours of riding the pinky starts feeling tired from having to deflect some of the protective plastic. But this might be less of an issue after it gets worn more. Regardless the glove fit great and were soft and comfortable right out of the box.
I got these to replace a pair of Revit gloves that fell apart in a few months. Revzilla was great in getting the warrantly and had the money in my account in just a few days.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This tire is great for my application. Only need enough to handle graded dirt roads. With a lower pressure they do much better than the road tread. Also much better wet performance for commuting.

The ride started with a nip in the air. Thirty miles later it is sunny and warm. Like a chameleon, the Dakar Pant, with its controlled ventilation chassis, changes to meet the demands of any condition with little adjustment. The Dakar can adapt with the help of 20 inch mesh-lined zippered thigh vents and a mesh-lined rear leg vent. Adaptation does not come at the cost of performance and durability. The Dakar Pant is built with TNP heat and abrasion- resistant leather panels on the inner legs, Cordura fabric for strength and highly reinforced knees and seat. Be ready to take the lead no matter the condition with the Dakar Pant.

Great value, specially with the option to add protection. I found that they fit perfect to size if and there is enough room to wear some insulation under on those really cold days.

Has good protection and is a very minimalist. The only problem I have with it is that the torso is very short. The only thing that saves it is that it brings some loops you can clamp the back to your belt.

Like most security devices, this is just a deterrent, but it gets the job done.
IT give you an loud been when armed and any movement sets it off. Just like others have said, learn how to take it off quickly so the alarm is not blasting.

Used them on about 10 rides and they are great. Did not take long to break in and are super confortable all day long. For me it is important to maintain dexterity so these are great. Materials all seem to be very good quality.
I used them in 40 F weather and they were cold, but provided protection for a quick day full of errands. Used them at 75F and although you dont feel ventilation, they stayed dry from perspiration.
