Fantastic Summer Glove
I have been using these gloves for 4 years now. I usually get two seasons out of a pair riding 7-8k miles per season. They are comfortable and lightweight. I like the gel in the palm, it brings the vibration down quite a bit.
I have read some reviews saying this glove won't protect your hands if you go down....Not True. In 2012 I was clipped by a cager on his cell phone, I impacted the pavement at 40+mph hands first. The gloves held together and saved my hands, the gel inserts took a beating but the gloves only suffered minor tears.
I will continue to use these gloves for my summer riding.

Being from a hot city, these gloves are a necessity. Yes i will agree with everyone on here that says they wont protect your hands from a fall. But lets face facts, your hands are getting wrecked regardless of the gloves your wearing.
However, the only real con about these gloves aside, they are amazing summer gloves!!!
They are super light weight. I feel like im wearing nothing at all. (Hence safety being entirely out the window) but they protect your hands from other elements, like burning on hot bars, should you. Not have a covered place to park. Your hands wont feel gross and sticky and sweaty like they do in some gloves after a summer day ride. Or getting painfully sunburnt.
They help keep a solid grip on the bars. I dont feel like I'm grabbing onto my bars through a thich piece of cloth. Again, i feel like I'm wearing practically nothing.
Long story short, these are perfect summer gloves for those who live in places that get hotter than hell.
Ride safe everyone.

More for looks than protection.
Bought a pair of these gloves 2yrs ago. Less than 2k miles and the index fingertips on both gloives are gone and the rest are on their way out.
Pros: mesh backing breaths *really* well in hot weather. They are hella comfortable. They look cool as well - stylish and make great overall gloves for that biker-chic look if that's what you're going for. Not bad for pistol shooting.
Cons: They offer no real protection while riding - palms aren't durable leather so if you go down you'll be picking fabric outta what's left of your hands.
Overall: For someone looking for legit riding gloves, these aren't the ones to get. These gloves are more for fashion and casual spring/fall temperaturs.

Good Gloves But Don't Last
I've had two pairs of these gloves since purchasing my bike 4 years ago. They are awesome for a little while, but both sets have worn down at the fingertips (some fingers more than others) after 1-2 years of riding, and I don't ride very often. I'm now in need of a 3rd set of gloves, which I'm not happy about, but I'm never buying these again.
