This is the best value I've found in a racing-oriented glove. This is the only glove I found in this price range with advanced features such as pinky bridge, knuckle protection, air injection, and finger sliders. For the glove to be perfect I think it should have plastic wrist protection on the gauntlet instead of just a slider, but at the price range I can live without it.
The only issues I've had are 1.) double closure on the gauntlet is too narrow for use with my textile jackets. Single closure would be better. 2.) Sizing is larger than expected--medium is about a half-size too big 3.) Leather is thick and takes a while to break in.
Overall I'm very impressed with all the AGV Sport leather gear I've purchased. I'm planning to buy another pair of the Raptor gloves as soon as my size is in stock again.
Yes, I recommend this product.
