Icon Justice Touchscreen Gloves
I also really wanted to like this glove, but...
... the sizing is strange. I fall exactly between L and XL on the size chart, so i ordered the XL. They were a bit tight on the base of my hand (so I imagine that the L would be way too tight), but certainly would break in a little. If only the fingers were normal size. They were much too long, and I have "normal" hands that fit a size 10 glove in all other applications. The extra material at the end of the fingers made it impossible to use this with my iPhone, so it defeats the purpose of the Touch Tech material. Also, the metallic logo on the wrist was pretty uncomfortable to me. I had to send them back and will try something else.

exactly what i was looking for, very comfortable, a moderate amount of air flow making it versatile temperatures and the touchscreen touch feature works well. very happy with them, id recommend them to a friend

I just wanted a basic glove that had the ability to use a touch-screen. These gloves worked as advertised. As other reviews I've read stated, these gloves run small -- so buy a size larger. I purchased XL's when I normally get L, and even with that they are fairly snug, especially around the base of the thumb. Overall I'm satisfied.

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.

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
