Fly Street Brawler Gloves
Great protection but slightly dangerous
Purchased these gloves and while they were slightly small, they still fit well enough to use and with them being leather I knew they were stretch slightly. These gloves look awesome and have tons of protection. However, they caused me to lay a bike down do to the restriction of the fist knuckles. They do not allow for full motion at all. Upon reaching for the brake they caught the throttle and rolled it forward causing unintended slipping from the rear tire. They ended up protecting my hands when I laid it down but they also caused it. I thought it was simply me so I gave them to a buddy (he lost his gloves) and nearly the identical situation occured but he was fortunately able to save his bike. With all this being said I CAN recommend this gloves for protection but I CANNOT recommend them overall.

They run just a little small
This glove is well made, the leather is soft, not too thick and is stitched well. There are enough vent holes to give pretty good air flow for a leather glove. Extra padding on palm is right where the wear points are and there is a small pad on the outside of the wrist cuff. The wrist cuffs extend about where one would wear a watch- so if you have to wear a watch you might want to keep this in mind. I have odd hands- usually right between the large and medium but normally wear a medium (9) glove more often than not- but these were tight and squeezed enough to be uncomfortable. I ended up going with a large, which made the finger length just a tad long, but comfortable and still usable. The 'touch' pad' is two silver thread sewn lines on the index finger pad, not on the tip- good for swiping, bad for 'touching'. They work about 50% of the time on my iphone. I would purchase these again as the construction seems to be well made and they have protection in the right places in case of a get off.

Great Gloves For The Price
I've only had two other gloves, both were in the $100 range, and for a glove in this price range it feels very safe. There's padding all over and it doesn't feel bulky or constricted. I have not broken them in yet, but I imagine they would feel even more comfortable then they already do now.
Sizing was pretty accurate, the only issue was that the pinky was 3/8 inch longer, while the pointer and thumb were about 1/4 an inch longer.
The only real issue I have with these gloves are that they are advertised as touch screen compatible, but that function doesn't seem to work for me. I have attached a short video demonstrating that it doesn't work. Tested on an iPad 2, iPhone 5s, nexus7, Samsung Galaxy. Tried both hands and the left hand had a little bit of conductivity, but then again I was pressing very hard through the gloves.
I don't really care about the touchscreen part too much. I purchased these gloves because of the other features and the price point. But this is just a word of caution for future buyers who were looking for touch screen gloves.

These gloves are great. They run small so order one size larger.

Great gloves at a great price, the styling is nice too
Have been using the gloves for about 3 weeks now, picking the gloves my needs were simple, white and red gloves, with solid knuckle protection that were suitable for summer wear, and I got so much more, the price is great they are very comfortable with the pre-curved fingers and they fit very well once on. Now getting them on is a bit difficult, I have what I'd call thin but long hands and getting the gloves past the wrist opening took a harder pull then what I expected but maybe they'll break in. Oh, and that touchscreen thing works, I don't use my phone on my bike and don't really know what this feature is for but it works with my android. Very happy with the gloves, I'd but them again.

LOOK NO FURTHER!!
These leather gloves are AMAZING!!
After having ordered some cheap gloves from some random place on the internet, that didn't last very long, I decided to give my business to REVZILLA & get something that would last.
First things first, the blue on the gloves are a perfect match for any quality blue leather jacket or helmet that you might have.
The ability to use your smart phone while gloves are on is super convenient. Padding is everywhere you can think, knuckles, palm, tops of the fingers... The knuckles have vents so you get some good ventilation in the summer. Being from STL, we have hot and cold days just minutes apart.. They are also get if it's chilly out to say the least.
They have quality velcro straps that are held together with a bit of rubber to add to the durability. There is mesh on the sides of the inner fingers even, which makes for a great fit as well.
These gloves just make you wanna go FAST!
I have even gotten compliments on the gloves from other riders in my group, which just doesn't ever just happen. LOL
The brand is "FLY" and they just happen to have 5 stars as part of the logo... Coincidence? I think not!
