Icon Overlord Resistance Hi-Viz Gloves
Decent warm weather glove. Size runs big, tabs too small.
The only serious gripe I have with these is that the velco tabs are too small. Trying to grab one with a glove on the other hand is like trying to remove a splinter with your fingers. The style designers won out over the "function" designers on this one. The size runs a bit large - why can't glove manufacturers all follow a strict standard for sizes? I would recommend this item but only to someone who would compare it to others for evaluation.

Made in china / Glued portions come apart / velcro strap never stays on
i have put 5000 miles on these gloves & still ware them for now but honestly i wouldnt recommend them because the glue comes apart on the finger tips so they peal back. I've got the icon motorhead jaket & the cuff zipper is positioned so i cant move my wrist with out the strap coming undone & there made in china but all that aside they look great feel great

Okay product, nothing fancy
Have had these gloves for a little while, I use them for riding everyday. First off remember they are leather so they'll stretch, I ordered large which I normally wear but these feel a bit loose after some time. I'm constantly adjusting my gloves during stops. Looks are good, they breathe really well and I ride in average of 94+ degrees everyday. Biggest complaint is the vi-viz yellow doesn't look like it does in the picture. The yellow leather around the knuckles guards is nowhere close to hi-viz yellow like the rest of the glove even fresh out of the box.

Not ready for prime time
1/2 size oversize fit; flat yellow but NOT Hi-Viz, tiny hook and loop wrist tab is a pain. Pretty good hot weather glove. I wanted to like this glove but design shortfalls like these make it a "meh". I'd send them back; but I've worn them on the bike. I wear a standard large in most American fit gloves, but the sizing and size chart are off for this glove.

Runs a bit large, comfortable, not touchscreen-friendly
I'm replacing a pair of well-worn Icon Stealth Pursuit gloves, so I got the same size in these as my current pair of Icon gloves (XL). They're a bit on the large side, not as much as a full size too large, but enough to be noticeable.
They are comfortable, the leather is soft, which makes manipulating the controls easy. They're also perforated, which is great for summer riding. The color stands out nicely, although it's not quite as high-viz as the pictures indicate.
I do note that they specifically are NOT designed to be touchscreen gloves, but I used to cheat in a pinch by wetting a finger. That doesn't work with these, unfortunately, but there are options out there to add the functionality.
Overall, I'm pleased with the look and feel, if a bit concerned about the soft leather holding up in a slide.

Nice looking gloves
NIce looking product. Not as comfortable as I was expecting.

These are some really nice, cool, protective gloves. Personally, I always prefer Hi-Vis for increased safety and these don't sacrifice aesthetics for protection, on the contrary, they are really cool looking and have TPR knucles and nails, which is important. My only motorcycle accident resulted in my hand going through the other driver's window: I was OK, except for my hand which got covered and cutted by glass. Trust me when I say it wasn't a good picture. That's when I decided to wear gloves with some protection. After some research, I went for the Overlord Resistance Hi-Vis and was not disappointed.
The gloves have a leather palm and a leather/mesh combination on the upper part, where the TPR is. Sizing is true, however, if you're using the size chart and fall between sizes, go a size down. Remember that leather expands a bit so don't make the same mistake I did by going a size up.
The only reason I gave it a four star rating is because the Velcro (loop part) beneath the cuff of the right hand glove did not have enough glue and started to separate from the plastic. Had to have it glued. I figured it was just bad luck because the other one was flawless. I would still highly recommend it and got several compliments while wearing the gloves.

Comfortable no BS glove
I can feel all my controls, unlike the Icon Field Armor Boots. These are comfortable, cool gloves that do the job.
