    a great glove that is expandable and very confortable and padded in the right places. great for riders that ride alot but not over 15 dailly or 20 dailly and riders that ride for more than 2 hours shouldnt get this glove because their not paded that well for that long of a distance.

    Strength:

    comfortable, great protection, reinforced on palm if you land on your hands.

    Weakness:

    lack the protection of full fingered gloves (duh)

    I like these gloves! My problem with the accel. full fingers are how hot they get in the summer, and lack of an area to wipe sweat. These address both issues. The terry patch goes all the way to the end of the forefinger, which is a great detail and makes it easy to get under the helmet. I've had three minor falls so far, and the stitching on the palm looks fine. Not much else to say really. Riding gloveless in the summer is not an option for me, and these seem to vent heat very well. For $12 how can you go wrong?

    Strength:

    Cheap, large terry cloth area.

    Weakness:

    Stitching on palm has loose threads right out of the package. cheap quality leather under the "nash" palm, after one ride in a light rain shows signs of bunching and is starting to rub off.

    Cheap product to purchase but also cheap quality. I doubt these will last more than 1 riding season and many washings like my two years my Pearl Izumi's have lasted. Next time I'll save my money and buy Pearl's. I got my last pair of Pearl's for $9.00 shipped but that deal is history.

    Strength:

    Comfortable. Breathe. Well padded for the amount of light weight riding that I do. Would not mind wearing them for rope rescue work that I do as a firefigter. Might even try them for rope rescue. Fit like a glove-Really!

    Weakness:

    A bit hard to take off the hand.

    Good glove. Fit well. Comfortable. Like them. Would buy another pair. Just might purchase another long fingered pair for this winter.

    Strength:

    Form, fit, style.

    Weakness:

    Difficult to find in "Red." Maybe they're being discontinued?

    Great glove. Easily the most comfortable I have used. Just enough padding but not enough to make it feel like you're wearing a baseball mitt.
