Good Points:
*Size and fit is perfect for my hand according to sizing chart.
*Great features and plenty of protection for fingers, knuckles, palms even wrist and forearms.
*Lots of features for the price - great value.
*Good enough fit and finish to keep me happy. All the stiching and joins look sturdy enough that I feel safe wearing them.
*Inner lining feels sort of like suede/velour and feels very nice and comfy on my skin.
Not So Good Points:
*The wrist protection makes it too thick to fit under the sleeve easily. When the glove is fully open, it isn't quite that big so it takes a bit of fiddling to get it to fit over the sleeve of a thicker touring style jacket. It would easily fit over racing leathers though. I first tried it with the AGV Sport Tempest Jacket and with some fiddling, got it fitting under the sleeve.
* The thumb and heel of the palm near the thumb feels rather tight but that could be down to just the shape of my hands. I have big palms. I've only just got it, so it may just need to get worn in a bit.
* The thumb doesnt have stretch panels or separate hinging panels like the fingers and knuckles do, so it feels tight/uncomfortable when flexing my thumb to grip something. Sort of like a pulling feeling on the area near the wrist and back of my thumb.
*Fit and finish is good but not anywhere up to the standards of some more expensive brands like A-Star.
Overall I am happy with these gloves and would recommend them. They're not perfect, but you cant be too fussy considering price and the features it has.
Next time I'm shopping for gloves, I think I'll spend a bit more on something that feels more comfortable on my thumbs.
Yes, I recommend this product.
