I wear a 9-91/2 "medium" glove (BMW) and had heard that I should opt for one size up in Held gloves, so I ordered size "10" which Held calls "XL." They were not just a little large, but way too large. I returned them (thanks, RevZilla) for a size 9 (large) and the 9's fit fine, but are difficult to get on and off. I'm hoping the stitching around the wrist area holds up, as this is the tight spot when putting on the gloves. As for their performance, I've ridden them at SoCal freeway speeds in temps up to 99 degrees - no sweaty palms and the top side breathes well. Tried them in the high 60's and had to change to a heavier glove. Would guess they are most effective from 75 and up. Comfortable (after the struggle to get on), have reasonable padding for such a light glove and grip well on the hand grips. Overall, I'm very happy with them - just know there's a major size difference between large and x-large.
Easy to use and accurate. Easy to maneuver through spoked wheels for proper seat on valve stem. Relief valve makes adjusting pressure a snap. Easy to read dial. For no apparent reason, I prefer the analog gauges over the digial readout gauges. Hoping it's durable - too new to tell.
Pros Great Value

These are the second pair of Olympia pants I own, the first being the Air Glide 2. The Recon pants fit true to size and need no alterations - I bought a size 34 and have a 34 inch waist and am 6'2" - length is just right. Lots of handy pockets, good ventilation and well-made. I've worn as an overpant, as well. Only issue I have is that the knee protection at times will ride up and not stay centered on my knees, even with pads in lowest position.
Pros Fashionable, Comfortable, Rugged, Great Value
