Alpinestars Stella SMX-2 Air Carbon Gloves
My husband and I started riding several months ago and I purchased these gloves. They fit a little small so I had to send back the mediums and go up to the larges, I would go ahead and order a size larger than you normally would. These have great protection and feel amazing when riding, with good airflow to keep your hands cool during the warmer months. The only thing I have noticed is they tend to fray a little around the fingers and since these are the first pair of riding gloves I am not sure if that is normal. Overall, I would highly recommend the Stella SMX-2 gloves.

I used the measuring guide and found Medium to be true to my size. I am 5'6", 150 lbs. The difference from my leather gloves is immediately noticeable, much more breathable in Central Florida. I especially love the padded thumbs which is one of the main reasons I chose this glove.

This product has great style
This was my first pair of motorcycle gloves for the street and I love them! I like the protection they provide and love the style with the splash of baby pink. The only complaint is they are very snug fitting. I measured my hand according to the chart and fell at the high end for a size small, so I ordered the medium thinking that would allow a little room. They fit fine everywhere except the thumb area. But they are not so uncomfortable to return them. After 2 weeks of use, they are starting to relax and mold better to my hands.

Great looking gloves.
I bought these gloves because there is no white/black option in the men's. I like the styling of these gloves. They are pretty comfortable right of the bat. The only issue I really have is that the thumbs are tight. I originally ordered a medium and they fit perfectly until I tried to go riding with them. The thumb being tight cut off my circulation and I couldn't bent my thumb to use the signal. I returned the medium and got a large. With the large the thumb issue was resolved but the fingers are a bit too long. But I can deal with it. Overall they are really comfortable and look good. I would recommend them for a summer glove since the airflow is really good and the cold air during my ride froze my hands.

Overall good comfort.
For the most part, this product has been my favorite. I've purchased multiple brands and this has offered me the best comfort and durability. Although airflow is simply okay, the overall look makes up for it.

I like the gloves for summer
Great airflow, excellent nuckle protection, however velcro fastener at wrist could be better, it comes undone by the edge of my jacket.
