I've had these for a few weeks now and figured I could help out anyone shopping for them. First, I have tiny hands (for an adult male!). I bought a size Small because my previous 4-Stroke Mediums were too big. I also have the Hellfire Evo in Medium which seem to fit perfect though....
Anyway, at first, these were very tight and uncomfortable. The sliders/protection on the individual fingers hurt and made my hands sore after just a half hour. After the past few weeks they have finally started to break in nicely and are very comfy and easy to get on and off. I would say they broke in quite a bit from new, so keep that in mind if you're in between sizes.
My main gripe with these though is that the thumb and pinky are way too long. The thumb being the worse of the two. and since they are short cuff, the velcro strap doesn't really help to hold them in place too much, so I have to frequently pull them back into position at stop lights. I don't know what it is, but you'd have to have some funny looking hands for these to fit perfect on all fingers.
The venting is pretty good, simply spreading your fingers lets in a nice breeze. The overall construction of the glove is solid and the leather feels very nice now that they've started to break in.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I wear a Medium in Alpinestars (could wear a small though) and I got these in Medium. They fit great, the pinky is a little big but other than that the fit is perfect.
I got these for cold weather riding even though they aren't specifically meant for it. I have ridden ~500 miles so far with them in 45-70deg weather without problems. I am good for hours in the 45-50 deg range.
Nice gloves overall, they are breaking in nicely and feel great.
Pros Great Value, Comfortable
