Strengths:    Ventilation, protection

Weaknesses:    Made my hands numb within half an hour

Bottom Line:   
I wanted to like these, but on my first ride with them (this morning, in fact), I was periodically shaking out my hands to regain some feeling. It was bad enough that I couldn't feel my thumb against the shift lever.

The BG outboard pad, which supposedly helps keep pressure away from the nerve underneath, has the opposite effect, IMO. It doesn't make sense to put a lump underneath the part of my hand that should receive less pressure; I really don't understand why so many gloves are built this way. Instead, make a system of padding that supports my hand elsewhere. Maybe I should wrap my handlebars in Silly Putty and see what shape results.

Get these if you sweat; don't expect these (or very many other gloves) to help on long rides. One ride, and I'm very disappointed. I wish I could have demoed them first.

Strengths:    Comfort, fit, ventilation, looks, DURABILITY!

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
I tell ya, I've been wearing these things for about 2500 miles, and washing and machine drying them regularly and they still look great. I've had lots of pairs of gloves that just wear right through in a third of that time. They'll probably keep going for another year or two. They fit well enough that they never leave lines on my hands like other gloves do--while still fitting snugly. They are also very well ventilated. Very solid product.
