Dainese 4 Stroke Gloves This short summer glove has been designed for the most demanding motorcycle riders in terms of ergonomics and performance, but also features technical content and assertive design.

Tried on a ton of different dainese gloves and none of them fitted over my dainese jacket correctly so I ended up getting a short glove... but i still wanted a 3/4 style glove in case my sleeve comes up a little in a crash. Anyway these gloves are great... look awesome, but defiantly need some break in time - ver hard to get them on when your hands are sweaty, but order them accordingly or the fingers will be too long. only complaint is pinky is really long, dont get it - it gets squeezed between my brake lever and handlebar sometimes which is kinda dangerous, but that was my first day riding with them. wish there was just a little bit of stretch in the palm so you can get them on my hands easier when its hot out. Honestly, I should of went with the icon overlord short. Tried these on in the store and they were AWESOME, just because its dainese doesn't mean its simply "the best" (btw I hate icon) :)
Yes, I recommend this product.

I researched, researched, and researched some more. I went from a riding "shoe" to a full length race boot. At first I picked up a pair of A*s SMX-5's because of the price. They were super comfy, and fit well.... I ended up returning them because they weren't vented. Anyway, I picked these up and don't regret them at all. SO MUCH MORE PROTECTION THAN A*s ... Please realize that these are one of the ONLY sets of boots that prevent your foot from being crushed, twisted, and extended too far forwards and backwards (for $300). Now I realize when you get to this caliber of "safety mechanisms" boots because extremely uncomfortable, bulky, etc - NOT these. These are extremely comfortable because they have a inner booty design (although no lace up) but its not needed. Finally sizing, width is regular. I am a US 9.5 and went with a Euro 42 (US 9) and they fit like a glove. DONT go up a size, they will be too big. Go down a size if you a 1/2 size. I even tuck in my SHIFT riding jeans (baggy) into them and they still aren't too tight. LOVE THESE! I Wouldn't ANY other boot brand over these, period. Oh, these are the air version and they do flow better, but nothing insane. Airs are the way to go. Perforation is so tiny I doubt if you get caught in the rain your foot would get wet anyway.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Everyone should definitely pick up a pair of these for the price. I love expensive designer jeans (true religion, 7 for all mankind, rock & republic) and these honestly fit and feel nicely like they do. In ALL my jeans I am a 30/31 depending on the style of them. 9 out of 10 times I am a size 30 waist. FOR THESE, I BOUGHT A SIZE 32. Trust me, size UP one size. I tried on a size 30 and they fit so snug (around the waist) that I wouldn't need to wear a belt ever, and they wouldn't be comfortable on OR off the bike. A 32 fit perfect. I also got the dark, as the lighter color just come off as "cheaper" looking compared to the darker color which looks a lot more fashionable. Oh, I had AGV sport camo kevlar pants prior to getting these, and they were so baggy I had to sell them to a friend. Most of these "riders pants" are super baggy and just look silly off the bike. These jeans are a typical regular fit so you don't look dumb. Great buy!
Yes, I recommend this product.
