These are the most comfortable gloves I have used. I use to have hand and finger numbness when biking. I did a 20 mile ride non-stop with these new gloves and I had no numbness or discomfort. Great gloves, sturdy, well-made and highly cushioned, the padding relieves most of the stress of gripping during long rides. helps keep my hands from going numb.
I ordered 3 pair as they where on sale. I don't know how long these gloves will last but I am expecting them to last a while as they seem very durable, So I should be covered for years to come.
I like the gel padding on the palm portion of the glove. The overall fit is firm, but not too tight. I like the terry cloth area for sweat or nose wiping. The only negative is when washing make sure the velcro tab covers all of the velcro, otherwise it sticks to everything in the washing machine.
Seams, Velcro closure and wiping surface are excellent. I agree with another reviewer that the gloves are stiffmaybe they will soften up after washing. Lastly, my XL size appears to be slightly smaller than my old pair of XL Pearl Izumi gloves. I wish they had a XXL.
I have worn Pearl Izumi fingerless gloves for years and simply needed a new pair. I decided to get a cheaper pair, but immediately regretted it. This pair was very stiff, uncomfortable and seemingly hard to break-in. I still will consider the brand, but would suggest spending a few more dollars for a better style that is softer and has more breathablestretchable fabric on the top of your hand.
