These gloves are consistent with the major American based brands we carry such as FirstGear, Tour Master, Joe Rocket etc, so hopefully you’ve had some experience with buying gloves and can choose based upon the fit of a previous pair. If you have no previous experience with glove sizing, go here for help.
Just as an FYI, you may have previous experience with European designed brands such as Alpinestars and REV’IT! which run about one half size smaller, size-for-size, than the American brands. It is not a universally true fact, but generally holds for most styles. So if a particular size in either of those brands is roomy on you, then you may be able to go down one full size in this style.
Our Two Cents
Need a very well vented full gauntlet glove with plenty of protective features? This would be one of the few!
This glove incorporates some smaller panels of breathable mesh material just behind the knucle protector and on down the side of the wrist under the Velcro-close gauntlet closure. And while there is no particular venting features in the front of the hand, you’ll at least get some flow around the back and side. This would be an improvement in venting over most leather race-style gloves. And because of how the mesh material is positioned, I really don’t think it being there will degrade the overall armor and abrasion resistance characteristics.
Overall, the gloves have a nice feel. The leather is soft and of high quality and the hand is decidedly “pre-curved” to the grip position. The fingers are sewn with external stitches which is the most comfortable method of closing the fingers. I also like the stretch leather section at the base of the thumb which gives a lot of flexibility.
Other features are the usual ones you’d find in a street/sport glove like this… Velcro straps at the wrist and to adjust the gauntlet. Some padding in the palm (wish they had a hard slider, but oh well), and some additional reinforcement in the palm and alongside the pinkie. The knuckle protector is very robust, but comfortable to wear.
For under $100, I find this glove to be well equipped and of high quality for the money. I’d recommend them. :: Paul, 11-23-15
