Really like these gloves. Have basically everything I want in a protective short cuff glove. Really like the styling and perforation. Didn't think I'd be a fan of the external hard-part finger vents, styling-wise, but they don't bug me as much as I'd thought. Been riding in hot and humid weather (during the 90-100 degree heatwave in New England this summer) and while I don't notice the venting being outstanding, they've also kept my hand comfortable, so I guess they're doing their job well.
Only issue is the fit. I'm 6'2 with large palms and average-length fingers, and I find the fit quite particular. I started with an XL and the webbing from thumb to forefinger was way too short. I returned them for an XXL and the left hand fit is perfect. The right hand webbing between the 3rd & 4th fingers presses into my hands and can be irritating, but if I back the glove up a bit so my fingers don't hit the end that goes away. It's not a real solution, though, but over the past 2 days as the glove has broken in, I've found it's bugged me less and less.
Overall, it's a great glove, but if you've looked at past reviews you'll know webbing between fingers can be an issue. They fit small, in my view, I usually fit an XL glove in Dainese or A* and I ended up in an XXL in this case. Try them on before you buy if you can!
Would be 5 stars, but minus one star for the hard finger vents and fit issues.
