I got these because I plan to do some track days and they require full gauntlet gloves. The gloves keep all of the wind from going up your sleeves which is great The fit is spot on and the gloves feel broken in right out of the package. I had tried a few different gloves on in the store and those were all more expensive and felt worse. And don't forget about state sales tax! these come in at a great price and are very comfortable.
As far as air flow goes, it's certainly relatively low. They're full leather and keep your hands comfortable in 65-70 degree weather. I would imagine they might get a little warm in the summer. But that just means that this glove has a warmer temperature range, it doesn't take anything away from it.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I got this jacket because I tried Joe Rocket stuff on in the store and it had the best fit. The length is adequate, movement is very comfortable and there is lots of adjustability. The thing that surprised me most was how it handled the wind. It really is just the right amount of air flow. I've been riding around on mid 60's days and nights with the windproof liner out. The mesh part flows a fair amount of air and the leather doesn't. When you posture up you get a relaxing cool, and when you tuck you stay nice and warm. I can't say for sure but I can see the wind-proof liner getting me into the low 40's with this jacket. I was sweating bullets when I had it in for 10 minutes on a 65 and sunny day.
The fit is great, it has all the bells and whistles and is affordable. Highly recommended.
I read one review that mentioned feeling like a space-man with the back bump. If it didn't have it, I would probably like the jacket a little more. But to be honest, no one has given me any looks, no one cares, you're getting the jacket to ride your motorcycle and be safe not impress the cool kids. The fact that you ride a motorcycle makes you cooler than any of them any way. Also of note, you can still wear a back-pack with no issues. You really don't even notice it's there, and neither does anyone else.
Yes, I recommend this product.
