I have only used these gloves once,and now its to clod for them.that being said , on my one ride with these gloves, the fit is great, the air flow is shockingly good. Its like a second skin.

"I purchased these because I currently have the Ram mount which i Love, however, anytime i get a text i can't see what they said until i park, so when i'm at a light or even parked, i don't have to take off my gloves anymore. I know it can wait, however, i'm not purchasing it to text. i'm purchasing these to be able to just see if something is important and the convenience of not having to take off my gloves every time. "

Exactly what I was looking for
I purchased these gloves to replace my Olympia 734 Digital Protector Gloves. The Olympia gloves were great summer gloves, but I was looking for something full leather construction and touch screen capable. The Icon Pursuit gloves have answered that need perfectly. Unlike the first set of touch screen gloves I ordered (Fieldsheer Soul Ride Gloves) the Pursuit gloves don’t just have contact pads on the thumb and index, in actuality all of the ventral (palm side) contact surfaces are touch screen capable. That’s particularly nice when you have a bulky phone case like I do, that way you can use your pinky to get to those buttons on the extreme left and right of the keypad. I purchased the perforated model considering I was shopping for a summer glove. At first I was concerned that the all-leather construction would be significantly warmer than the mixed leather textile gloves I was replacing; however I was surprised to find that the pursuit gloves are every bit as comfortable on the hottest days as my Olympia gloves were.
I like how well the gloves form to my hand, as the fitment seems true to the measurements guide. I also like the styling, the knuckles are armored, but not overly obtrusive like some of the more aggressive riding gloves. The icon badges are also subtle, yet recognizable. I would definitely recommend these gloves to anyone looking for summer weight gloves, especially touch screen.

good airflow and held up in a lowside
Purchased these gloves for the touch screen feature. I live in So Cal so the yearly temperatures except for the most coolest of winter mornings allow for perforated gloves. These are my daily "go to gloves. They are little snug but you want snug gloves when using a touch screen device. These are my second pair as I had retire the first set after a low side crash. The gloves did their job allowing me to ride 70 miles home with no hand or skin injuries. In the crash my jacket took the brunt of my impact to the road but I did tear up the outer layer of the reinforced palm on one hand but did not go through the second layer. I was so impressed I purchased a second pair.
When you first get these the seams at the end of the fingers are kinda annoying but trust me they will break in and stretch and you won't notice it once they break in. One thing to note is these gloves have minimal wrist coverage. It slightly covers the underside of the wrist but top of the wrist is almost non existent. They are great for allowing airflow up through the cuff of a jacket but these would not ideal in colder weather where you want the glove cuff to go over the jacket cuff.
Looking to purchase the non-perforated as well for the those cooler months.

Comfortable glove with good bang for the buck features
Used these gloves for a 3500 mile round trip ride to Sturgis SD. Gloves kept my hands from sweating in 90 degree temps. They broke in well, and now feel like I'm not wearing gloves at all.

I have a pair of regular Icon Pursuit gloves that are my absolute favorite gloves of all time. I bought these for the touch screen feature. The only reason they didn't get a full 5 stars is because they are not quite as comfortable as the regular Pursuits. Still they are a top quality product and I have yet to find another pair of gloves that are better all things considered. When I don't need the touch screen feature, I wear the other pair. Both great gloves. The touch screen aspect of these is excellent.

The only gloves I've worn since I bought them
As a Harley rider I was a little reluctant to go for the big knuckle, super hero looking gloves, but I wanted the airflow that these provided. I trusted the Icon brand since buying a jacket a while back. It was a bit of a hard pill to swallow, to put down the cash for these, but it was worth it. Very comfortable and great airflow. Very happy with them. Now I just need to discover my super powers!

Nice construction, some air flow, great protection, good looks!
I've owned Icon Pursuit gloves before & I like them. I like the level of protection they provide, while still looking good. Comfort is always subjective to the rider, but these fit me well in the past so I bought them again (this time with touch screen capabilities). Air flow is not as good as a textile mesh, but if I take a slide down the road I think I'd prefer something like these over something that might shred on first contact. Flexibility of the glove is good (and gets better with age) & the touch screen feature is great to have. The only complaints are that they removed the snap that held the gloves together when storing & and they only come in black.
