Strength:

Comfortable, flexible fit, snug but not too tight, ventilate pretty well, very soft

Weakness:

Some loose threads at edges of fingers, sizing somewhat incosnsistent from pair to pair -- try several

The Louis Garneau gloves are among the best reasonably-priced basic warm-weather cycling gloves I've used. The leather and lycra are softer and more flexible than in other brands I've tried, and they seem well built. However, threads at the finger holes do tend to come loose sooner than they probably should. Still, the gloves hold together well, and they served me excellently during three solid months of bike commuting in the city this summer. When the warm weather comes again, they're ready to replace my full-finger gloves for another season. Good value.

Strength:

Great gloves! They are very comfortable and are made with a nice leather. They are great!

Weakness:

Leaned against a tree, tree sap stuck to it, couldn't get it off!

Great gloves made with great-but not heavy duty-materials. Buy them if you want good, inexpensive gloves!
