My hand measures 8 12 so as per size chart I ordered size M. They fit like a glove. Easy to get on, facilitated by an integral pull tab, and are so comfortable that I forget that I'm wearing them. They are a bit of a chore to remove, but did I mention that they are comfortable? The padding thickness is light to medium I would say but just the same, they are quite comfortable.
Got these for
My wife because the listing strongly suggested they were womens gloves, she needed a pair and red is her color. She likes them and will use them
But they fit life, suggesting theyre either a unisex model or I misread the product listing (doubtful, they were under womens gloves ) Buyer beware on sizing!!
Bought the 2014 version and loved them, not too padded.
So I bought a second pair...These are the 2015 version (which is what I'm rating lower).
They have added gel inserts that are too thick and bulky, affecting grip on the bars.
As others have mentioned, they run a bit small, too. But I believe they will stretch out a bit after wearing them in.
Loved the 2014's with less padding, not in love with these 'new and improved' gloves.
I have used nothing but Giro gloves all my life while cycling. These are well made, yet they seem to run a little small in size. When using the terry cloth part to wipe away moisture, the top Velcro straps seem to get in the way. Overall, great product for the price.
THE GLOVES ARE GREAT! THEY WERE A LITTLE TIGHT INITIALLY BUT BECAME COMFORTABLE AS THEY WERE USED.
THE ONLY MINOR NEGATIVE IS THAT THEY ARE A LITTLE DIFFICULT TO REMOVE. (NO BIGGIE)
The only reason I didn't give them a 5 was the size was a bit on the small side. I would order up a size. I'm an avid rider and ride almost every day. They seem to be holding up well.
