Strength:

Good flexible material, well placed padding, good fit.

Weakness:

Glued on reflective material coming off easily.

Over all I think it's a decent glove. It has a good fit so that I get good tactile feedback through the material to my fingers, which I personally like. There are a whole range of sizes (that I saw at thier Sea Otter booth), so getting a pair that fits shouldn't be an issue unless you have sasquatch hands (no offense to the sasquatch lovers).

The only observations that I would make would be:
1.) Make the padding across the palm go a little higher toward the center of the palm. (more of a personal preference)
2.) Use better glue for the accenting material and the reflective material as it starts coming off after a few trips through the clothes washer. Better yet, stitch it onto the glove instead of using glue. (It doesn't ruin the look of the glove when this stuff comes off. I barely notice it at first and forget about it later).

I will be buying another pair of these gloves when the current ones wear out.
