Icon Women's Pursuit Stealth Touch Screen Gloves
Good summer gloves
These are not well ventilated but are comfortable for summer. They stretch a great deal after a few wearings. The sizing advice runs to the large end. I measured and ordered a medium, as per the sizing chart. A small would have been a better fit, I think. The knuckle protection was not uncomfortable as previous reviewers have noted

Before I bought these, I tried on a pair of the Stealth pursuit gloves in large at a local store, which fit perfectly. I liked the perforated style more. I ordered the same size, which is slightly baggier, which isn't a huge deal (The width of my hand is almost 3-1/4" so I think sizing down would be too small.)
The touchscreen feature definitely works, I've used it to browse the web and taking photos. I'd still take off the gloves to text, though. The fingers are definitely too bulky to be very accurate.
Overall I'm very happy with these. They stay fairly cool for being summertime in South Florida and the armor is pretty solid.

Pursuit touch screen gloves
I measure 7" all around and got the size small perforated black. After 3 rides, the gloves have broken in comfortably. They even fit well with my glove liner now. There's decent air flow on what was an 80 degree day. The touch screen feature works, but since the fingertips are a wee bit long for me, it isn't as accurate at times to text but good enough. I've only had them for a month so I can't rate their durability and overall protectiveness. Although they're esthetically pleasing and stylish, not much of wrist protection. Overall, love these gloves and how they pass as regular gloves. The leather is soft but sturdy.

Nice looking gloves for the wife
My wife loved the look of these gloves and so did I as I have the mens version.

I love these gloves
This is my 4th pair of Icon Pursuits. They are comfortable, just the right length and I feel protected. I'm also surprised that they actually work as advertised on a touch screen. The only thing is that I still typically take my glove off to txt because the fingers are too bulky for the little screen. Great gloves.

Nice design, quality control problems
I've been wearing these gloves for months now, and I just can't keep using them. I have another pair of non-perforated Icon Pursuits which are really great, but these have a build quality issue that makes the knuckle armor on the right hand sit in the wrong place. If I wear them for more than 40 mins or so, my right knuckles get so sore, and the armor isn't even in the right place to provide the intended protection. I thought it would go away as I broke them in and the leather molded to my hand, but it didn't. I've had them too long to return them, but I'm going to find something to replace them anyway.
Other than that quality control problem, they have a good look, good protection (for a short glove) and do work on touchscreens as advertised. I wish I could love them.
My advice is buy them if you like them, but if the armor sits wrong exchange them right away instead of hoping it'll get better with time!
