Strengths:    Great fit and grip. Just the right amount of padding and your hands don't get too hot. Durability!

Weaknesses:    have a synthetic feel

Bottom Line:   
I like these better than Fox sidewinders Because they are fingerless but other than that i find them pretty much the same. As they were $15 AUD cheaper i was sold.
Overall these are good gloves and i highly recommend them as a XC Glove.

Strengths:    Fit, feel, great looks, and I would say over all durability. My current pair has seen better days, soon I'll be replacing the old Fox's with a new pair.

Weaknesses:    None. Maybe could be a little cheaper.

Bottom Line:   
Overall I'd say great gloves. Not too hot even in the summer. They are very comfortable. I love the full thumb. Helps to eliminate painful blisters, and raw spots. Not really a down hill type glove (obviously), but excellent for xc. These rock!

Strengths:    Great fit, feel and look

Weaknesses:    Wish it had a full thumb and they really start to stink

Bottom Line:   
Great glove. Worth every dollar. The only things is I wish they had a full thumb because the cloth arount the thumb rolls back and rubs the inside of my thumb, They also relly start to stink after a couple of hot rides in Texas.

Strengths:    Tough, great moto type looks, machine washable, sweat absborbing wipe nice feature to have.

Weaknesses:    Hard to find a perfect fit when you mail order, but I had a discount coupon that I needed to use.

Bottom Line:   
These gloves rock, was looking at Foxe's for awhile but I feel that full finger/full thumb is unecessary for cross country. These really fit the ticket. 2 years stuffed in my helmet and occasionally washed and they are still going strong. Plus you get to rock that trendy "Fox" head logo that all the fake moto rednecks have on the rear windows of their trucks! Now if only "No Fear" made bike gloves I'd be all set.

Date Reviewed: January 10, 2002

Strengths:    Strong Palm
Comfortable


Bottom Line:   
I find these gloves to be comfortable, not to hot, not to cold in average temp riding. The fingers are cut at the right point to allow uninhibited access to the controls. Get's kinda cold in really cold weather, but what do you expect for a half-finger glove? These have saved my hands numerous times and still look great... Keep up the good work Fox!

Weaknesses:    get a little hot on long summer days

Bottom Line:   
Fantastic product. Great for summer riding, and I have some new dirtpaw full-finger gloves for colder or hairier rides. Bottom line, mesa does everything a glove should do and then some. Have saved my palms from serious abuse during urban assault endos. Definitely worth getting a pair yourself.

Date Reviewed: February 14, 2001

Strengths:    Very comfy. Terry cloth over thumb to wipe sweat is nice.

Weaknesses:    I have a wide hand and they fit great. Might be a little roomy for thin palms.

Bottom Line:   
The bottom line for any glove is personal fit. Go to your LBS and try some on. This is a good pair of gloves for a wide range of temps. They fit my wide hands perfectly.
