The DIRT summer glove offers the perfect balance between protection and ventilation. Lightweight mesh and perforated leather parts allow air to flow freely along the hands, keeping you cool. The level of safety is exceptional for a mesh glove, thanks to high-quality leather, dual-comp palm slider, Albany cowhide hard-shell knuckle, and PU-injected finger knuckles. The DIRT is comfort and safety rolled into one glove.

I love the look of these gloves and they breathe like crazy. The venting really makes these gloves. There is good protection from the knickel guard and the palm sliders. Other parts of the glove feel a little thin, but I think that's what you get when you want to keep cool.
I got a XXXL based on the sizing chart but I find them a little too large for me. I think XXL would be better. For reference I am 6'2" and my hands are large, but not freakishly so.

Bang for the Buck
Protection & Durability
This product is great! I used it on my commute to listen to music for a few weeks then recently used it on a week-long trip with a buddy through mostly rainy weather. The unit is reliable and clearly waterproof because we were riding through steady rain that was pretty hard a times. It's easy to pair between headsets and devices. I was using it with my iPhone 3GS and my iPad at various times and never had a problem pairing with either. On my iPhone it even lets you use the voice commands.
I chose the snow mobile unit becasue there is very little space between the chin guard of my modular helmet and my face. I'd be chewing on the boom mic if I had to use it, but the wired mic is great for me.
I highly recomend this easy to use and reliable unit.

Overall I am really happy this jacket. It is very comfortable and breathes well with the vents open so it is even comfortable in hot weather.
I recently tested it on a week-long trip from Ottawa, through Quebec, New Brunswick, New England and New York, mostly in the rain. The rain was releentless for most of the week and quite hard at times. I ended up wet, but I think there was so much rain that just about any jacket would have failed in some way. The weakest points were the vent zippers at the elbows. The zippers are "waterproof" YKKs but given that yor arms are genereally bent there the rubber seals are pulled slightly appart. I had a similar issue with the main zipper about midway down. Being cold and soggy I was hunched down causing a bend in the zipper as well as a fold that collected some water. Apart from that I think riding in 8-10 hours of rain just saturates things beyond control. I didn't treat the jacket at all but I would recommend a healthy dose of silicone water proofing spray for insurance.
Overall I am pleased with the jacket but thought I would offer my rainy experience for those really concerned about staying dry.
