I admit. I don't like gloves. They all seemed like a waste of money, as they rarely lasted more than a ride or two, either from falling apart or getting lost. But, when a clinic tore my hands apart, I needed something quick for the second day, and grabbed these mostly because of the color. And I loved them. They fit very well, very comfortable, and for the NY summer, never felt too hot. I love the grey (I really dislike black and outside of my boots, avoid anything in black). Only 4 stars because they're starting to show their wear and rip a little along the seems after less than 1 real season, and the tech parts don't work well. Maybe 1 in 15 taps will register. Still likely going to buy these again, possibly in bulk, because no other summer glove has ever made me actually willing to wear gloves.
