Icon Pursuit Perforated Touch Screen Gloves
Does the Job
Great fit and very comfortable. The ability to use a smartphone or GPS device while gloved is extremely handy. I definitely recommend this product for that reason.

Protection, but not super durable
I bought these this summer, and they are very cool, and fit well. The ability to use my phone while wearing them is also very nice. The problem came when I lowsided my bike at about 40, the leather in the palm, adjacent to the extra protective panel tore apart. I think this was due to the perforations making it weaker. I did not get more than a few small scratches on my hand, but it is something to note.

Love the fit and style but quality is not there.
I have these in both perforated and non perforated and while I love the style I the quality is horrible. After having taking two shipments to get a pair that match properly and after the first ride the snap that holds them together fell off on both pairs. Fast forward a few months and now the velcro is separating on one pair. Poor craftsmanship.

Great style, comfort, and touchscreen capability.
As a relatively new rider I feel like these were a great purchase for my first set of gloves. They offer decent protection, but also don't look like you are about to fight someone either like some armored gloves. I find that they are a very good fit and were exactly what I was looking for as a commuter.

Bad Velcro, Good Leather, and Touch Screen works
I've been wearing this product for around a year now.
The Velcro won't last for more than six months. The gloves does what is says it will do, and the leather feels good for about a month. After that it becomes too loose and you want to take your gloves off to unzip a jacket or use for touch screens. The technology would be put to better use in a textile glove that incorporates the touch screen feature in the necessary fingers.
Bad Velcro is a deal breaker for me.

Had a pair of these gloves. Gave them away. First replacement pair had wrist strap Velcro separate from leather after two uses. Refund under warranty. Ordered another pair and was back ordered. On arrival the wrist strap failed the first day I wore th. Going to return them again. Icon had serious production problems with there gloves. Too bad I loved them but quality issues are serious. Won't buy them or other Icon products in the future.

A hot weather must have
I bought these at the last minute before a cross country ride (KC to LA). So glad that I did! In warm conditions they offer comfort, protection and style, but when it gets hot they are really at their best. Great breathability and comfort. I rode in temps upto 110 degrees and while everything else was hot, my hands were cool, comforatble and protected. The ability to use an i phone while wearing them is also a super nice benefit.

Very pleased, exactly what I expected.
This is a nice pair of gloves for me. I ride a GL1800 and wanted a nice pair of summer gloves with decent protection and airflow without being bulky. The Icon Pursuit gloves are just that. A good value at a reasonable price and comfortable to ride in. I like where they hit on my wrists and the pull tab for getting them on easily. The sizing chart was dead on. I rated them slightly small because I normally where a large and the size chart suggested an XL, which I ordered and they fit perfectly. If you are looking for a good summer glove with good balance between comfort and protection I definitely recommend these.
