The gloves are consistent with the major brands we’ve carried—Teknic, other Joe Rocket or Olympia, so hopefully you’ve had some experience with buying gloves and can choose based upon the fit of a previous pair. If you are sometimes between sizes, I’d suggest trying the smaller. If anything, I found these gloves to be roomy.

Our Two Cents
The Joe Rocket Velocity 3.0 gloves are a light weight glove for summer street riders. These gloves are very inexpensive but offer good quality.
I’ve always cautioned riders about light weight, inexpensive gloves like the Velocity 3.0 which don’t have significant protection features. But if you really like a minimalist style like this, these gloves are pretty darn nice. While they lack armor, the rubber overlays on the back of the fingers and knuckles feel more significant than you might expect. And the man-made suede material in the palm is thicker and sturdier feeling than many similar styles. There is just a bit of padding in the heel of the hand and across the palm. I wouldn’t call it “protective”, but it might help with comfort. The strap across the wrist will keep the gloves on your hand in case of a fall.
The back of the hand is mostly a stretchy fabric that allows air to flow through, so consider this style for mild to hot weather use. For just over twenty bucks, I think these gloves represent a good value. :: Paul, 11-14-19
