Icon 1000 Beltway Gloves
Great glove, has its quirks.
I'm almost always a size medium in gloves, so I bought the mediums. Turns out they fit really big. Thanks to Revzilla's awesome return policy, I returned the mediums and got smalls. They fit perfect now. They take a while to break in. They're a little thick but very comfortable. The openings are a little small and at first it takes a while to get the gloves on. They do stretch out a little. Great protection and great style.

Stylish and protective
I had originally bought this product for of course the style, the red color just pops and adds personality to the rider.
I recently had laid down my bike, while scraping the ground my hands were 100% protected from any harm vs my jacket which is torn.
the glove is still in excellent condition after the abuse its been through, would def recommend to anyone!

Great protection with good design, but bulky.
Great design for the offered features and protection. Though it is bulky and slightly difficult to put on and pull off.

High on style and protection
Good fit and very comfortable. Nothing else looks like these, so you probably love them or hate them, but the D3O protection is high tech stuff.
Only bad thing I have to say is they are not ventilated nearly as well as the appear. The perf on the fingers isn't very effective and they are fairly heavy leather so they are warmer than I expected, not a Florida summer glove!.

Super Soft Glove
The glove feels amazing to the touch, period. I usually wear a size medium glove, but after reading reviews I sprung for the size small and I'm glad I did they fit perfect, the finger length is really good I have long skinny fingers and thinner hands. As my hands are small the whole "wrist opening is to small" problem is not an issue. these gloves look great with more subdued riding close and the red leather is awesome looking. Not to sure about the D3O armor but I really hope to never test it and find out.

They almost feel broken in right out of the bag. Super soft leather... an excellent compliment to my Roland Sands Ronin. Beware if you have large wrists though, the cuff opening is extremely small. If you have small wrists or can manage your way through it, they feel perfect and fit true to size. The only reason I don't recommend these gloves is that they are too expensive IMO.

Cool looking gloves!
Gloves look amazing. They take about 2-3 hours to break in. Make sure you get you the exact size. They are pretty true to size if not a bit larger. I'm an alpinestar medium and a small in icon for reference. As far as protection I think there is plenty. I think it's more important to have thicker material than hard material. This glove does not have a hard knuckle protection but it does have thick foam and thick leather. I would feel total confident that it would be sufficient in a crash.

Stylish but not much protection
Overall I like these gloves, they're super soft, comfortable and they look good (I bought the red version). That said, don't expect much more protection then a normal un-armored deerskin/leather glove. The 3DO knuckle armor will help a little, but if you hit it with something hard you can definitely feel it on your knuckles. It won't protect them nearly as well in a crash as hard plastic or carbon armor.
Sizing is about spot on but it's a tad small at the wrist, so if you have a big hand it will take some breaking in before they slip on easier.
They are definitely not a winter glove, but for spring/summer/early fall they should serve you well.
