Icon Sub Stealth Gloves
Great gloves for the price for summer use.
These gloves were my first set when I started riding. I picked them up because of the relatively low price point while still offering leather palms and some hard knuckle protection. They have lasted me almost two years, but need to be replaced because of a tear at a seam in the palm. The fit is larger than expected, particularly in the little and ring fingers. The leather also has a tendency to stretch over time causing the fit to suffer.

Try them on
Fits small. I typically wear a medium or large glove. I got these in a large. While the finger length and the hand span size is fine, the thumb is very tight. Particularly the seam along the thenar eminence (the meaty part at the base of the thumb). I have seam lines left imprinted on my thumb for 20 minutes after a 30minute ride.
Airflow is excellent. Protection is sacrificed some for light weight and airflow. Would be a great summer glove if it fit me better.

Very decent warm weather gloves for the price
I got a pair of these on-sale, to ride in warm weather, since my other pairs of gloves are definitely for cool weather and are uncomfortable in warm/hot weather. These gloves function as advertised. They run true-to-size, are easy to put on and take off, and seem to have decent protection for a basic set of gloves (haven't had to test them on the asphalt, fortunately). I like them enough that I got a pair for my wife. I'd recommend them as a basic, functional, works-as-advertised warm/hot weather set of gloves.

Nice daily commute gloves.
I bought these gloves for daily commutes. They work well for that in central Texas for the vast majority of the year. They're easy on and easy off, though I'd like just a little more of a pull tab on the wrist. They probably won't provide a ton of protection in a spill, but they keep rocks off of my knuckles while riding without problems. For the price, these are good gloves.

Decent warm weather gloves with protection
These are nice looking gloves with decent protection. The palm tends to bunch up a little on the throttle hand. I've used them in temps up to high 80s with no problems and they would probably be fine into the mid 90s. Anything lower than about 65 and my hands start getting cold. The nylon has already started fraying on the fingers after a few months but it seems more cosmetic than structural. A good pair of gloves for the price.

Great light protective summer glove
These are my first gloves so I cannot really compare them to anything but I can say that they get the job done and are really comfortable as well as aesthetically pleasing.
I live in Tallahassee for school and just started at the end of summer and they were great when it was hot, now it is approaching fall and at nights it does get kind of cold and these gloves are not so good at keeping you warm because of their airflow.
However, these are not advertised for winter riding so for what they are, they are great gloves.

Good, not overwhelming
Good warm to cool weather gloves. Nice protection for a lightweight glove, quality leather on the palm. Good fitting glove, fingers are slightly curved which reduces fatigue.
For the money, I got exactly what I paid for which is not a bad thing.

Just what I wanted
I’m 62 and have an acquired allergy to asphalt, so I always wear reasonable protection – head to toe. These gloves don’t offer the greatest protection, but they will clearly take a lot of abuse before they wear through to my skin. They also have some hard reinforcements in a few key spots. They are very comfortable out-of-the-bag and flow plenty of air. I only bought them for hot weather riding and they work well for me. Great deal and they were at my house the day after I ordered them. Revzilla is amazing!!
