Strengths:    Very strong, they will stand up to pretty much anything your going run into. The carbon fiber knuckles are awesome. They also look very cool.

Weaknesses:    If you don't take good care of the Velcro wrist strap it doesn't stick as well as it should.

Bottom Line:   
Awesome performance, awesome looks= sheer awesomeness.

Strengths:    Good protection, well ventilated.

Weaknesses:    Not much of a liner to protect the sensitive areas of the fingers from the plastic pads.

Bottom Line:   
These are nice gloves with good protection from hard hits, but they are a bit uncomfortable as there is not much lining between your fingers and the plastic pads on the knuckles. I find that I get hot spots on the backs of my fingers. I'll give them 4 chilis for value as the price was good, but 3 for my overall rating, as the thin liner feels cheap, uncomfortable and suggests that they may not last.
