Icon Justice Touchscreen Gloves
I REALLY wanted to love these gloves, but I can't.
The gloves are ill fitting and uncomfortable. The overall sizing was fine, i.e. the gloves fit my hand and around my fingers just fine, however, it seems like they used Skeletor to model the finger fit, because the fingers are far too long leaving a lot of excess.
Due to the excess material, it makes using the tech bit of the gloves difficult, though it does work if the fingers are pulled tight.
The overall feel of the glove wasn't comfortable either. They felt what I imagine wrapping your hands and fingers in duct tape would be like, although I have to assume these gloves are easier to remove.
Overall, I really wanted to love these gloves, and I tried, but I absolutely hated the execution.

Exactly as Described
These gloves are Great! I wear size large and they fit perfectly. Quality is excellent! They work perfectly on my touch screen GPS and iPhone! Look great too!

Spendy,... though, great features and super convenient !
Definitely didn't want to spend +100 bucks for short gloves, however, the touchscreen is new, & I guess they can charge for it. Cuz is worth it when you have to use an IPhone, GPS, etc. while stopped during your ride, just keep these on, since once you break the quality leather in, they form fit well enough to your palm and fingers with nice ventilation. AZ is warm and I needed new xcuffs for the coming Spring and 100+ degrees summer night rides. Never Squid your gloves! Speed Safe & Ride On!

Great function with the touchscreen ability.
The ability to use your phone with your gloves on is nice, you don't realize how handy it is until you get a text after you get your gloves on and remember you can still respond.
There's a little too much room width-wise in the fingers for my liking. The length of the fingers of the gloves are perfect though. Lots of unused room in the palm of the hand, which is sometimes uncomfortable on the grips. Alpinestars fit much better overall in my opinion. For reference, I wear a Medium in Icon, and a Large in Alpinestars.
The gloves have held up extremely well though, had these for about 5,000 miles and there's no stitch undone. The leather broke in nicely at first and after washing and conditioning them at 3,000 miles they are extremely flexible and comfortable.
Not much in the way of airflow even though there are vents and what not for cooling and ventilation. I live in Phoenix, so during 80+ weather your hands get sweaty pretty quick with these.
The metal Icon badge on the top is good looking and provides some added protection - scraped my handed against a block wall and it didn't faze me or the badge/glove.
Selling point is obviously the touchscreen feature - which is great, but beyond that, I'd go with something like the Alpinestars Octane-S Moto or SP-X instead. I won't buy them again (or another Icon glove) because of the loose feeling fit.

These glove are the first set I have bought and they instantly made me want to only wear icon products. A very nice glove worth every penny

Great Look/Touchscreen Yes/Icon Please Execute Better!
Really like the look of this glove and most everything Icon does. They have a great aesthetic. Also, the touchscreen technology really works, works well and is very useful.
The cut of these gloves are bizarre, unless you have unusually long thumbs! Very puzzling. Also, the inside of these gloves feel cheap, uncomfortable and faulty. There is a scratchy material lining the inside of the glove that has not worn in. Also, there are two fingers with some sort of ball at the end that hits your fingers and is, also, very uncomfortable.
Unfortunately, Icon's production quality is not up to par with its design talent.

Great Summer Gloves
Have been using these gloves all summer and I quite like them. Very comfortable and they are quite cool. They are also very stylish. And they do, in fact, work on every touchscreen service I have tried them on. Overall, I'd recommend these gloves to anyone looking for some good summer touchscreen gloves. Would not recommend them for winter use however.

Good for short distances/commuting. Touchscreen tech works.
Good for around the town, daily commuting glove. I got these for using my iphone (GPS/Music) while the phone was in a Ram mount on the bike. Gloves touchscreen tech works with the iphone but due to the width of the glove fingers, you won't be typing text messages @ lighting quick speeds. In fact you will have to be deliberate in finger placement on the screen, but it works and is better than taking the gloves off at a stop light, trying to work your phone, and then put then back on before the green light.
I got blisters on my palms when I wore these on a fly-n-ride from Detroit to NYC (1100 miles/2-days/not straight line ;-). So I would not use these except for daily commute/short distance. And I just bought a Garmin Zumo GPS which works with any gloves. So personally I would not buy these again. For others it depends on your intended use.
