When you are out over 4K miles on the bike in an 8 or 9 month period, you are going to need great gloves and these fit the bill. All gloves are NOT created equal. Your hands are busy during a ride, so, give them and your associated nerves the comfort they need!
Very well constructed. Most comfortable glove Ive owned. Love the design and materials, but thats expected from anything Pearl Izumi. The heat transfer reflective material came loose on my first ride, but I wasnt really looking for reflective properties anyway. I think it was just a fluke, but thats why I didnt give 5 stars. Price is up there, but worth it. They really do feel luxurious on my hands. The fit was spot on for me. Im not a small handed person. My hands are average, possibly slightly larger than average. I bought size large.
Red gloves. Nice color and matches some accents on the bike. My previous gloves had a leather palm. The padding appeared to have totally compressed. I would occasionally get numb hands. I am hoping these new gloves will help alleviate the issue. Even with fresh padding, I think gloves only go so far in that department. My issue is probably more my posture, etc. The gloves are comfortable. No chafe. No heat build up. Usual difficulties in removing the glove but two of the fingers have little grabber pockets to help you pull the glove off. Rarely use those grabbers so I don't tear anything.
Sizing no abnormalities with sizing. Seemed a little tight at first but the stretch is fine.
Gloves fit very well, and are true to size. Bought a medium, and the fit is very comfortable. Padding is where it needs to be, and there are no pinch spots anywhere on the glove. Nice value for the quality that you get.
I have two pair of older style Pearl Izumi gloves in size medium. Perfect fit, favorite gloves. I saw these on sale at Western and bought them to work into the rotation. These are tight. Thought they would stretch a bit. They do not. They put my hands to sleep and I have to undo the Velcro and slide them toward my fingertips on rides to keep the blood in my hands. PI must have changed manufacturers or something because ALL of its apparel is now so variable in size you cannot trust them, and cannot afford return shipping. I tried to give these a chance but cannot wear them. Money wasted. Going to other manufacturers I can trust in sizing. Too bad.
