Compared to the Klim Induction glove, not even close.
I purchased the Kilm from another vendor and immediately knew something was very wrong, even dangerously wrong. The knuckle protector wasn't centered over my knuckles, and wearing them felt like sand paper. All of us riders understand the importance of gloves, as mandatory articles when riding. Comfort MUST be there. I don't know where Klim sourced those gloves, but they weren't even remotely ready for prme-time.
Enter Held Airstream II. Absolutely phenomenal glove. Fit is perfect, the comfort is just simply perfect, and wearing them makes you not fear long travel.
Clearly Held has done a bit of research on these. This is my first pair of (anything) Held, but I can already tell that I'm a return customer. I just hope they stay in business. Well worth the price, and I'd say to all you sport-touring/adventuring-touring guys, these gloves are MUST HAVES for summer riding.
Anthony knows his gloves. Sometimes you have to call it what it is, and Anthony is spot on stating that the Held gloves are likely the best out there, at least in this price range.
Yes, I recommend this product.

REV'IT! Athos Air Vest In order to remain highly visible in traffic without compromising on airflow, REV'IT! developed the Athos Air vest as the summer edition of the popular Athos vest. The front and back panels are made of fully perforated PWR shell mesh EN471 certified fabric. Stretch panels at the side ensure that the Athos Air vest fits easily over any summer mesh jacket in the REV'IT! collection, so air flows directly to your body through 2 layers of mesh fabric

I use this over a RevIt Air (hi-viz) jacket and it fits like a glove, both are XL. I'm 6'1" @ 220, so a little porky for most motorcycle jackets. This XL fits great, nice and snug. Most vests will fly around when the wind hits them, but because this is made from a heavier material, it stays secure in place.
This item was out of stock for quite some time. Glad to see them back in!
Well worth the money.
Yes, I recommend this product.
