I find they run a bit on the loose side but overall a great all around glove. I can definitly feel the air flow through the top of the glove and keep my hands cool. They also look awesome and match the Sand jacket/pants (as they should!). Only downside is the price.. ouch!

Icon Pursuit Perforated Gloves Fits like a glove... Youve heard it a thousand times, so have we. What actually defines how a glove should fit We think the new standard is Icons Pursuit glove. Supple sheepskin leather conforms to your hand. Plastic knuckle armor for protection, but hidden for a refined look. All over perforation for all day comfort. Reinforced goatskin palm to combat those nasty encounters with the asphalt. Try it on for yourself and then decide. This is what a glove was meant to be. Pittards sheepskin chassis for great fit Goatskin leather palm overlay for durability Integrated knuckle armor for protection Secure wrist closure keeps the glove in place Expansion gussets to improve overall flexibility Snap to keep gloves together while not in use

I've had about 4 pairs of gloves over the past few years and these are by far my favorite. They actually fit 'like a glove'.. I hate bulky feeling gloves, which is why I love these.. I hardly notice them.

I use these with my Sand 1 jacket and they are great. They certianly seem more 'American' sized #AKA bigger#. I was initially worried that a size small might be too tight but they are actually very roomy. The cargo pockets are a nice touch but I'd like to see them a bit bigger.. anything bigger than a thin wallet will feel tight in them.

 Powerlet rapidFIRe Jacket Liner With Dual Wireless Controller Package
Powerlet rapidFIRe Jacket Liner With Dual Wireless Controller Package
Powerlet Rapidfire Jacket Liner With Dual Wireless Controller Package Powerlet's RapidFIRe Heated Jacket Liner packaged includes the Dual Wireless Remote Heat Controller. Controller receiver is pre-installed and Pre-synced for your convenience. Powerlet's RapidFIRe Heated Jacket Liner with CNC (Carbon Nano Core) heating uses Far Infrared technology to provide fast, deep, soothing warmth. Now the warmest liner on the market at 105 watts! Built in stuff sack and no annoying heating wires of any kind! Stay Warm While Riding Powerlet's 105 watt RapidFIRe heated jacket liners pack down to a very small size to fit on the bike when not in use. Not only the warmest heated clothing available, but ProForm stretch panels also make them the most comfortable. We recommend using the temperature controller with the RapidFIRe 105 watt jacket liners. The RapidFIRe Advantage The most unique feature is the heating system that is incorporated into every liner. Using the latest in Carbon Nanotube technology, Powerlet's Carbon Nano Core panels heat quickly and evenly without the hot spots or long heat times other conventional wired garments require. Additionally, Powerlet is the ONLY manufacturer to offer a dual heat setting that permits you to switch the total consumption to not exceed 60 watts. This means those of you who have bikes or vehicles that do not have the electrical output capacity to power a traditional or competitors liner can rest assured that the RapidFIRe line will get powered without draining your battery and leaving you stranded. Additionally, Powerlet once again incorporated the ProForm stretch panels that provide three key advantages non-binding movement, maximum heat transfer and simple sizing. While all three are very important, maximum heat transfer is perhaps the most important. For maximum heat transfer the heated garments must be close to the body. A long sleeve T-Shirt is recommended under the heated liners. A heavier layer can be worm over the garment. Other heated clothing manufacturers provided many sizes to attempt to create a snug fit. This often leads to a more complicated purchase and the potential improper fit if your weight changes. RapidFIRe 105 Watt Jacket Liner Features Dual Heat 105 / 60 Watt convertibility by a simple cable disconnect Wind and water resistant Polyurethane coated nylon outer shell ProForm stretch panels provide comfort and simple standard sizing Ultra thin design provides comfort and small storage Comfortable heated Polartec fleece collar wicks moisture Zippered pockets manage power cables Handy built in stuff sack allows for storage on the vehicle Unique sleeve finishing reduces bulk around wrists Glove connectors are located at the ends of the sleeves Heated on the front, back, arms and collar - full heat coverage Quick heat time of 20 seconds or less on the jacket liners Designed For A Lifestyle Powerlet designs heated garments for people who rely on their heated clothing for both comfort and safety. Like their customers, they enjoy a lifestyle utilizing convenient modern electronics and wear our heated gear for commutes to work and trips across the country. Built For A Lifetime Powerlet seeks the highest quality materials and craftsmanship. All of their heated clothing products are developed and tested in the USA by people who ride regularly. Quality components and attention to detail ensure Powerlet products resist wear and corrosion to last a lifetime. All Powerlet RapidFIRe heated clothing carries a lifetime warranty on the electrics and a lifetime warranty on manufacturing defects.

I was never really sold on the idea of heated gear until I bought this jacket.. Totally a must have! Warms up instantly and can get baking hot if you want it to. The wireless controller is an awesome idea. I added a piece of velcro to the bottom of it and 'stick' it to the top of my tank bang where the map case would go. I also love the fact that it can store in it's own incorporated pouch which makes travelling with it easy. I bought this jacket along with the heated glove inserts but actually don't use them since my core temperature is now much warmer, thus my hands no longer get cold even when riding in the 30's-40's F.

Provide a perfect combination of protection and 'walk-ability'. Fit great and have a fairly low profile toe for easy shifting (compared to other boots). Excellent choice for adventure/dual sport riding.
Pros Fashionable, Comfortable, Rugged
