I bought one pair of long finger and one pair of short finger Pearl Izumi gloves. On the palm of my long finger glove the seam is now unstitched. My short finger glove the stitching is starting to fail on the finger open end.
The Pearl Izumi Gel and Gel Vent gloves have been my go to gloves for years now. We had a colder than normal winter in SoCal and my son needed some full finger gloves. I gave him my old pair of Pearl Izumi full finger gloves and ordered this new pair. I am very happy with the purchase. The padding is comfortable. They fit well and they keep me reasonably warm on the coldest mornings.
These are comfortable shoulder-season gloves.
The velcro closure works well, but it's a mirror image of the closure on my winter gloves, so it always takes me a second to orient the gloves correctly. But that's hardly a major issue.
I purchased these gloves for trail use but a colder winter has also made them my primary road glove. Even after repeated machine washings they look and function like new. Fit was true to size and the finger swipe works well. I highly recommend these gloves. The sale price made them an even greater value.
These are light-weight gloves that fit and feel good. Typical Pearl Izumi quality. But they offer little warmth (if thats an issue for you) theyre not very tactile for touchscreen devices.
