Strengths:    I'm still using them...

Weaknesses:    The full finger thumb.

Bottom Line:   
I just now ordered new gloves and am still using (for five years) these gloves. They are still in reasonably good shape. I don't ride everyday, but at least a couple times a week. They are faded and worn, but still together and definately usable as a glove. I still don't care for the full finger thumb, which is why I'm not going to purchase these same gloves again, but if they have the same glove without the full finger thumb, I would be sold for life. These things have adequate padding and have maintained their integrity for longer than any glove would be expected to. Five chilies for the durability and longevity.

Strengths:    Well constructed.

Weaknesses:    For my use, none.

Bottom Line:   
I've used these gloves for about two years now. They haven't fallen apart like the other "cheapo" brand gloves I'm used to using. In fairness, the cheapo gloves still lasted at least a couple years each (although they were in VERY poor condition). I don't really understand the need for a full fingered thumb. I feel the glove would be better with a half-fingered thumb, but it is just my opinion. These gloves have minimal padding in the palm area which might be a turn-off to some, but hasn't been a problem for me. Overall, these gloves work fine. I got them on sale, so they are a good value for me, and overall, I'd say they are good, but not great.
