I wanted a summer glove that had fairly good overflow with good knuckle protection, padding in the palm. Gave it a 4 for the bang as it was slightly over my $100 limit, but tried 3 other gloves before I tried this one. I have really long fingers and thumbs which are skinny, narrow palm. Hard to find gloves to fit my fingers which aren't a bit loose across the palm which these are. It helps that the top of the wrist has some elastic sewn into it which cinches it up a bit. Also nice velcro wrist close, gauntlet style. Luckily my jacket is big enough to go over the top and can be velcroed down to keep out the bees. If your jacket sleeve can be tightened then the guantlet would go over it. Rode in 93 degree wheather so far and was not sweating in them, but then again, I have cold hands all the time.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I normally wear a 10.5 shoe which is what I ordered. The boots were a bit loose for me as I have very narrow feet and high instep. I had the same issue with my harley boots which get too hot for weather above 80 degrees. once I put in a heel insole and another full insole over that, both boots fit nice. They have excellant airflow thus will be much appreciated in 80-100 degree weather I ride in during the summer. They have better ankle support than the Harley boots. One would not want to take any hikes in them, but are comfortable enough to walk around short distances in them. The only thing I dislike about them is the top is rather flaired out versus be slim. Can't really slip any type of riding pants over them that unless you buy more of a racing type of pants. These boots are designed more for that. I will still keep them for my cruising style just need to roll the pants up.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The medium size is just a shade large around the waist and the inseam a shade short, but this is due to my size of having a 30" waist with 34" inseam. I have added pads in the back pockets to be similiar to the Bohn Armour system.
Yes, I recommend this product.
