Dainese Essential Gloves 4.2 5 13 13
Great looking glove, airflow is non-existing I bought these gloves about a month ago and they felt a tad small, seeing as how I fit other small gloves, guessing I should have went a step up for the medium. That's my fault. They did break in well and I enjoy the feel of them. The leather is supple, which I expected no less from the Italians but the white really starts to "discolor" after just half a month. These being a replacement for my Alpinestar summer gloves though, these Essentials seemed to flow no noticeable air onto my hand. Being in this summer heat, with my jacket, and Ogio backpack really causes me to sweat, and in less than a month, the gloves are already in terrible shape. I don't think these will be terrible in the fall, winter, or spring, but the summer will definitely require something breezier. Gloves look great, will definitely protect me in a fall, but they just aren't what I was hoping for during these hot days. July 31, 2016
Good Summer Glove These gloves meets my needs of good air flow for summer glove. They are not too hot and protect my hands. Follow the size guide and you will be fine. June 28, 2016
Great product. This is my first pair of gloves I purchased, at first they were a little snug but after a few weeks they became more comfortable to wear. The protection on them is really nice. January 19, 2016
Comfort These are the most comfortable gloves I have ever worn. Look great too. November 30, 2015
Worth the $$ I spent around 60 dollars on these gloves. I was looking for something a bit more breezy for the summer weather that I live in almost year round, and they do fantastic. Though they don't have the most protective features, they definitely make up for it in comfort and aesthetics! My only issue is that the white leather that covers the palm under the thumb area isn't covered as the rest of the palm is. This made my gloves quite dirty looking after only a few rides. Regardless, definitely worth the purchase. October 6, 2015
Great summer gloves These gloves are pretty nice lightweight summer gloves. Still tons of protection but a step down in that respect in the line Dainese sport gloves. Great fit. Very nice materials. In the Revzilla video, Anthony mentions some trouble with the cuff being a bit loose. I see what he is saying, however, after wearing them for about a week or so things seem to tuck in much better. My only gripe on these is that the outer material on the inside of the fingers was a little slippery at first. Not too bad, but if you're a stickler for grip, give these some time. August 24, 2015
Very good gloves. In a ~25 mph low-side fall I had zero hand damage. Rest of my body was fine, but hurting from impact bruises - my hands were unaffected. Knuckle protection is tough, palm protection is very good for no-race glove. Didn't even scratch leather much in my minor accident. Flexibility is okay, which is what you want, protection takes layers. They broke in after 5 -6 hours and are now adequately flexible. Overall I'm very confident wearing these gloves. June 8, 2015
Good for commuting (city usage) Thsi is ok for daily comute. Not recommended for roads. Minimum protection. But very comfortable. May 25, 2015
