Icon Overlord Long Gloves Strong, light, and ready for duty - the Overlord glove is the finest glove Icon has ever offered. We started with a Kangaroo palm - thin for ultimate feedback form your controls yet more abrasion resistant than cowhide. Critical impact areas were treated to reinforcements of Pittard's Keratan - a flexible yet significantly enhanced abrasion resistant goatskin. The backhand is constructed from Icon's Battlehide goatskin - forming a tough yet lightweight barrier against asphalt incursion. A full compliment of injection molded armor plating provides additional defensive measures. The Overlord also features a floating knuckle design which allows for maximum articulation while reducing hand fatigue. The overall effect of these materials choices and pattern engineering is instant comfort, protection, and mobility. If you're in the market for a full gauntlet glove slip on an Overlord and judge for yourself. Abrasion resistant premium grade Battlehide goatskin backhand Kangaroo palm Pittards Keratan abrasion zones Injected thermoplastic knuckle and wrist protection Injection molded wrist plate Precurved fingers Aramid stitching

Purchased these gloves based on the materials and feedback of other users. $155 is a lot to ask for these. The materials are top grade but the quality of manufacturing is missing. Stitching was very poor.. Lots of hanging threads. Some of the internal stitching on the small and pointer fingers was very uncomfortable. The roo palm was nice, and the gloves allowed for very free movement. Judging by appearance alone I would not expect these to last more then a season. These just don't belong in the $155.price bracket and I don't think I would recommend them at any price point. I ended up returning them and going with the Cortech Latigo's instead. Half the price and twice the quality!
No, I do not recommend this product.

I wanted to purchase a nice set of gauntlets for street / track use. 200$ track gloves where out of the question, a more realistic budget was around $150. I Purchased these after trying the Icon overlords ($155). These gloves are AMAZING and easily compete with gloves that are twice as expensive. Compared to the overlords these gloves have a much higher attention to detail and quality. Fit is true to size and they are comfortable. To be honest these gloves blew the overlords out of the water and at half the price! A little stiff at first but they break in quickly. Not a single thread out of place. The stitching is perfect. Protection is comparable to gloves in the $150 range and more then ample for street use. I would have no problem using these on the track.
Yes, I recommend this product.
