Strengths:    Lasted through lots of laundry washings
Little bit cheaper
No major stitching failures
Leather palm is durable


Weaknesses:    Foam fails to provide any cushioning (flattened out) after so much use

Bottom Line:   
Foam is now worthless, and wears like a thick leather glove now.

Strengths:    
Cheap!


Weaknesses:    
They dont hold up for Crap!


Bottom Line:   
They suck. Even for an entry level glove. I wouldnt recommend them. Spend a little more dough and buy a pair that will last more than 3 months. On the other hand, their bikes kick butt!!

Date Reviewed: April 6, 1999

Strengths:    
Comfort, Padding, and Hand Mobility


Weaknesses:    
Ventilation


Bottom Line:   
This is a decent moderately priced glove. It tends to get a little warm, but if you can get past that it does its job nicely. I haven't used it enough to judge its durability, but early signs say it is a good durable glove. I would actually give it 3.5 stars 3 being average, but like cellular phone companies I will round up to the next flaming pepper and give it four. All and all a good quality glove and I would reccommend it to the average recreational biker. I have seen them ranging anywhere from $15-$19.
