Joe Rocket Classic Gloves
Perfect Cruiser Gloves
Gloves are the gear item I had the worst luck with. I purchased 10 different pairs before finding these gems. Not only are they the most comfortable gloves I've worn, they also helped increase time before my hands went numb. Great style for a cruiser bike as well. Palm padding is fantastic with its gel insert.
Only drawbacks are breathability in summer (which is honestly not too bad, but certianly not as breathable as mesh) and that it doesn't have much padding for knuckles.
Overall, I will absolutely purchase these again. Can't imagine wearing a different pair now.

A basic glove that's a phenomenal value
I wanted a decent leather glove without over-the-top gaudy armor, that had a subdued look to it and this is exactly what I was looking for, for my v-twin riding. It's simple in design and very comfortable. It has a very generous gel palm that's not overly thick, so there's still good feedback through the glove. It literally "fits like a glove" with no uncomfortable stitching at the knuckles or anywhere in the fingers. I would say they're not very heavy in the protection department, but I'm sure they would save my skin if they had to. These gloves aren't for hot weather riding, but they're not insulated for extreme cold weather riding either. I find them to be a very comfortable mid season glove up to about 75 degrees. I think these gloves are fantastic for the money!

Picked these up for a warm weather glove that would help mitigate some of the vibrations I felt in my hands after longer riding. The gel padding on the palm completely neutralized all vibrations. Gloves are comfortable and thick enough should I go down but still allow me to have great movement to work controls.
I do wish the gloves had a dedicated pull tab to get them on, I worry about the seams being the weak point and excess pressure on them causing them to come undone to quickly.

Nice fitting glove with great feel
Nice daily riding glove. Excellent padding yet good precise feel. High quality leather should age very well. I would want longer coverage for my wrists on long rides but not a big deal most of the time.

Nice snug fitting leather gloves
Gloves fit snug but will stretch out just enough to have dexterity to operate controls. Very comfortable in 50 degree range.
Not a cold weather glove but will be using them in mild weather which was my intention. Good quality product.

Joe Rocket Classic Gloves
I bought them for my daughter's boyfriend, and fit them, according to recommendations in the video, and they were perfect! He loved them!

good quality for the money
I wanted an all around glove that I could wear most of the season, looked great and was around $50. This glove delivers. I would say if you are between sizes, go for the smaller size. Mine were a little long in a couple of areas and they will probably stretch out a little more over time.

Great leather gloves
After watching Anthony's review, I was concerned about sizing. I too wear large size gloves most of the time, but Anthony suggests these fit a bit large and one should order a size down. I did not want to order a medium and have to return them.
My hand measures right under 4 inches, for which the Joe Rocket size chart lists size large. I have a pair of Joe Rocket gloves in large and a pair of Tour Master gloves in size large. I decided to go with the size chart and ordered large in these gloves as well.
They fit and are extremely comfortable. There is no built-in liner, and I have had success fitting a silk liner as well as a thin thermolite liner. Dexterity is great with and without the liners, though wind flow is a little high without a liner.
The Joe Rocket label is not as prominent as it looks in the photos on the site. It's a bit more subtle; noticeable, for sure, but so is the fact that I'm on motorcycle and wearing a helmet.
I think these will be great spring and fall gloves; they might be good in summer too. I hope that the addition of a liner will take me into late fall with them as well. In Chicago, there is no winter riding season – not for me anyway.
