Alpinestars Corso Drystar Gloves
Good for the price
These gloves are low-profile, more classy than flashy.
They are not meant for high-level protection, so if your looking for something that will protect your ulna and pinky, these are not for you.
Read the description, they do what it says.
Super comfy. Snug fit.

Good glove for fall
With the temps dropping into the 40's, I needed a glove that wasn't too bulky, but still have some protection. I purchased the Corso and was pleasantly surprised. The lining was adequate down to 40 at long distances, but I radiate heat. It does have a snug fit, but I like that. The small gauntlet was just enough to cover the cuff of my jacket and not look like I was going into battle. The only issue is when you remove the glove. You can't just pull it off. You have to work it off from each finger or the liner will try to follow you fingers out. Once you get used to this, the glove is great and good looking! Overall, I would say this is a good glove.

Pretty good all around save the issue of grip
Well made, stylish, and having taken them on my first run on a cool day, they have good insulating properties. I agree with the other reviewer with regards to throttle. I somehow feel the grip is not "sticky" enough so one feels the throttle wants to slip, and so I grip harder. Because the glove is form fitting, I feel like I put a bit more effort into squeezing. I noticed the leather grip area runs the arc from the thumb to the base of the knuckles on the hand, no further up the fingers so the friction surface is limited. I'm tempted to scuff and dampen the leather in the grip area to see if that helps. The gloves may just require a bit of breaking in so the best review will come in after some use.

I bought because its waterproof, and to match a Verona WP Jacket. Its also good for cold weather, but on hot days the hands gets sweat inside.

I Like the rugged color
They are nice gloves. I like the rugged raw flavor. They get the job done. Im ready for winter.

layered but subtle
These have layers and those layers are not always stuck together firmly, so you can get wrinkles. They are subtle and good for the cold. They may be a bit smaller than normal, but not terribly.

decent gloves for 45-65 Temp @ 80 MPH for 20-30Min.
Gloves are well made, stylish, has good fit... although they bunches up on the palm at times. I will not wear these pair outside the temps and ranges I have indicated because your hands will feel uncomfortable!
