Firstgear Mesh Tex Gloves
Inner stitches are uncomfortable to finger tips
Overall this is a good glove for the money, I just purchased at a local bike store. Unfortunately I the ones I purchase is bothering a lot on the fingertips. The stitches are very elevated and bother a lot, I only rode 45 minutes with it and I'm ready to return. If was a $20-25 bucks glove I would probably keep it but since I paid almost $50 for it I'm sure there is better options here at RevZilla. I just ordered the Icon Sub Stealth Gloves, lets see.

A little snug, but good gloves
I bought the XL size after following the measuring guide on the site. i think 2X would have worked better, after a 2 day break in period i could swear they actually got harder to get on, takes a bit of work to get my hands in there, but once they are on these gloves feel great!

Good first gloves.
This is my first pair of gloves and my first review. The gloves looked nice and thick when I ordered them. When they arrived, the first thing I noticed was how thin the palms felt. I say this in comparison to a full leather pair that my co-worker had me try on when I took the MSF course. I have never fell off a bike (new rider if it isnt obvious), so I dont know just how thick gloves in general should feel considering they are made to protect from high speed falls, but that was just my impression when they first arrived. I ordered a large and it fits perfect. The knuckle protection feels really solid. I used their size chart to size my hand. Some reviewers are saying its sized small, but a large fit me fine and I am a bit on the skinny side.

Good for multiple seasons
This is my first riding glove, so I don't have anything to compare it to. But it is decently comfortably and seems durable for the price.
By the measurement chart, a Large would have been too small, so I got the XL. This size is a little big, but that's kind of what I was looking for. The glove does not overheat your hands in the summer (have used it on a couple 90 degree days), but is thick enough to keep em warm in 50 degree weather. The reason I wanted them slightly large was so once it starts getting even colder, I can put my thin under armor gloves underneath.
Overall, it seems like a good buy

I bought these gloves because I've been so pleased with other Firstgear products. These however are a disappointment. I've used them for just over 500 miles of riding (about a month) and they already look old and ready to be replaced. The seams on the back of the hand and the fingertips are fraying. There's padding in the palm which would be great if it didn't bunch up in all the wrong places. On a positive note, they look pretty cool when they're new and they aren't very expensive. They do run a bit small so order a size up if you plan on buying them but I would recommend spending a little more for a better product.

These gloves have a snug wrist and run a tad small, which causes them to chafe under normal riding conditions. I did use their sizing chart and rounded up, but I still needed one size larger.

Cool for summer
These gloves have been cool on a hot Georgia day. The mesh design keeps things cool. Protection seems adequate. My only complaint is they are a bit tough to get on. The opening is a bit constricted. They are comfortable once on, but take a bit of work to get on. Otherwise I am very happy with my purchase.

Very comfortable glove
These gloves fit great once they're on the hand. The cuff is rather small, so it can be slightly challenging to get them on.
The gloves run small - I usually wear a L/XL, but these gloves fit me in a 2XL.
The gloves are light, but they look and feel like they would protect well in a fall. Parts of the palm are padded for extra protection.
