Joe Rocket Speedway Gloves
Great protection but short fingers
For the money, these are well built and fairly comfortable. The armor seems protective though I luckily haven't had to test that yet. The fingers are slightly shorter than other gloves in the same size, and the seams on the inside of the finger tips can get annoying but not super uncomfortable.

Good glove for the price
I have fairly long fingers and most gloves require a size up - after wearing these around the house I was almost about to send back to Revzilla for an exchange to the next size, but decided at the last minute to wait. Glad I did. They are a bit tight for me in size Medium - basically due to finger length, but like a lot of good gloves they stretch out a bit after some use and fit great now. Really comfortable glove and fully confident they will keep my hands protected.

These were my first gloves. I grabbed them because they look totally awesome, and found that a small fit me perfectly (I am normally between a small and medium). I think a medium might have been a better choice, because a glove that fits perfectly when relaxed will be too tight when gripping a handlebar. Still, after a few hundred miles, they've broken in nicely, and the dexterity is good enough that I can put in earplugs and fasten my helmet strap while wearing them.
Ideal temperature for these gloves is low-50s to mid-70s, maybe a little outside that for short rides. The protection seems very good, although the palm rivets make me afraid I'll scratch my tank. It would also be nice if they used micro-velcro on the closures, as the cuffs like to snag on each other.
All in all, these are killer spring/fall gloves for the money.

Great glove. Possibly slightly short fingers.
Love this glove. I might have slightly long fingers though as pretty much all gloves are a tiny bit short on the fingers for me unless I get ones that are too large for me. This might stretch in after some more use though and be perfect fit. As is, it is very good fit. I don't notice them being on while riding, which means they're doing their job great. Could use a bit more palm padding for longer rides but I don't think this is intended as a touring glove. And I'm a newer rider so likely apply excessive pressure on hands vs legs for support.

Great glove and great price
I used these gloves in the summer and they work great, there's nice air flow. However, that means that they're not good in the cold. I live in Maine and decided to take my bike out for a ride one last time. These gloves offer no warmth at all. But again, they're great for summer. I've yet to crash in them, but they seem to be very rugged and offer good protection

Like a glove!
I got this for my motorcycle riding course and it was great! They were really comfortable to wear, no problems handling the clutch or brake, controls with them. Airflow is decent around the material, and the protection is really good, although I haven't done anything to test THAT out, and hope I don't!

Good gloves for the price
My only issue with the gloves is they run big, I ordered a size smaller than the chart said to and still feel the gloves are a touch too big, Other than that the gloves are well built and seem to be a quality product.

Inexpensive, NOT cheap.
These gloves fit just the way they're sized and they look great in person. Sometimes things are inexpensive, but not cheap, and these are just that. The wrist velcro rubs a little at first but after a wear or two, it goes away. I would recommend these to anyone. I haven't had the misfortune of testing out the protection, so I can't speak for that, but I wouldn't expect a product from this site to be sub-par in that category.
