Icon Pursuit Perforated Touch Screen Women's Gloves
Women's Icon black leather gloves ROCK
Great pair of gloves for warmer weather riding. Knuckle protection fits great. Gloves look good. They do run smaller, but leather does stretch.

Great gloves, but a few mean seams
I have these gloves in the non-perforated, and I bought these as a warm weather glove. I bought the touch screen version, as I had done before with the non-perf. I have ridden in them a half dozen times or so at this point.
Fit is reliable, the gloves are attractive and minimal while offering reasonably great protection for a warm weather glove.
There is a seam that lands right on the joint on the inside on one's thumb. I may still be breaking these gloves in, but this seam is my mortal enemy. After a handful of minutes riding, my throttle hand's thumb becomes irritated, as the seam rests right where the majority of pressure from holding the throttle pushes. It's never caused a blister for me, and I hope it continues to soften and improve, but it's currently the biggest annoyance with these gloves.
Finally, the touch screen feature is sometimes a bit frustrating. Because of the perforated material, it means an inconsistent material. I don't do a ton with my phone while gloved, but I do start music and take photos before I hop on and go, and I found this to be mildly frustrating. One can still use a touch screen, but the functionality is less compared to the non-perf glove.
These are good gloves, and I'm not trying to scare you off of them, I am just pointing out the two flaws I've noticed in the time I've ridden with them. Fingers crossed this seam only gets better!

Get this glove!`
Icon gloves are slick. Fit is snug and comfortable giving you excellent feel for controls. Ventilation and touchscreen usability are nice added features. On my second pair. They feel great. Don't bother with cheaper knock-off versions...you get what you pay for.

Just what I was looking for!
First, let me say that I now own two pairs of these gloves: one perforated and one non-perforated. I love how they fit, and found that little extra material on the inside of the wrists quite helpful for pulling them on quickly.
The non-perf gloves are fabulous! The touch screen feature works well (both pairs that I bought are the women's touch screen capable option), and the gloves are comfortable and look quite good. Non-perf got a bit chilly when the weather hit 40 degrees F, and riding on the freeway on an overcast day leaves my hands uncomfortable after a half an hour, but that's normal for me in colder weather. I've ridden in them in as hot of weather as 85 degrees F, and they were okay, if I bit warm.
The perforated gloves are also fabulous! I rode to work this morning in 55 degree F weather, and it was chilly, but great staying under 35mph. I got the perf pair to be my summer gloves, and for when I tour to hotter places. I am thrilled to have both versions!
My biggest annoyance with these gloves is minor: the break-in period is basically entirely for the seams, and they're not amazingly comfortable the first few rides. Nothing bad, but I was worried the first time I threw the gloves on. After a handful of rides, they're only getting better and better.
Great gloves at a decent price, and from a brand that I trust.

Would buy these again
These gloves were a nice middle ground between my textile street gloves and my gauntlet track gloves. They fit true to size. The width of my hand is a hair over 3" and the large fit fine. The leather is supple and of good quality on most of the glove. The perforated leather on the thumb is thin though and might rip if caught on something. They have good airflow. The gloves are short and don't cover the wrist bones.

I bought these for my girl friend.
The service from revzilla is awesome and
the gloves fit and look exactly as advertised.
Not much use yet to speak to, but a very nice
glove for the money so far. recommend.

Comfortable enough for me to want to keep them, but not as comfortable as my last pair. Takes time to get them softened on the inside (knuckles). Long term they will be great.

good glove but break in needed
I needed a glove with more protection and this one certainly fits the bill but it really cuts into the areas between my fingers and makes my very few an non-bulky rings uncomfortable. I believe this glove will grow comfortable with time and break in. Or perhaps purchase a size a little larger than what you actually need.
