Joe Rocket Superstock Gloves
Solid bang for the buck--Great first glove
When I was a noob I tried on a LOT of gloves, and ultimately I settled on this one. There was enough tactile responsiveness to it to get a good grip on the controls, and yet I felt very protected. It's a summer glove but I made it stretch most of the year in SoCal, but it will definitely not keep your hand warm in the chillier times. But for the price, I feel it's a great buy.

I have had these gloves for 4 months now and the stiching is starting to come apart. At the store where I bought them the only pair in my size had a sewing defect also, the velcro piece was coming off. On the ones I had ordered and have been riding with the sewing on the side of my right thumb is starting to come apart and it hasnt even been a full riding season yet. So these gloves look and feel great but in reality they run small and never break in and the quality of sewing is extremely sub standard. Do yourself and favor and find another brand.

RUN VERY SMALL. Great gloves.
A week after getting these I ended up falling off the bike. The gloves protected my knuckles very well. They are still usable, feel great and look great. I have small hands and normally wear a small or medium but these gloves were a large and fit snugly. I would recommend this glove to friends as long as they aren't too big of a build.

After 1 Season, palm grip is coming off
Got these gloves last fall and rode a lot during the fall and then we had that long winter where I road here and there.
It's now April and I've only ridden a handful of times and my left palm grip is coming off.
The fit was awesome, the price was great, but these are definitely not to be worn in cold weather or slightly cold weather. I think I'd rather have sweaty hands then frozen hands.
I got these because my jacket was Joe Rocket and were impressed with the fit and feel but durability I'm kind of disappointed in especially since I didn't get a full season of wear on them.

Good full leather, protective and comfortable short-cuff glove!
I was looking for something that I could commute with, but wasn't cloth or ridiculously expensive. I was also looking for something that would give me good dexterity in my digits. These fit the bill nicely.
I have roughly a medium-sized palm but longer, skinny fingers, so I ordered a pair in Large. I was surprised when these Joe Rocket gloves fit as well as they did; they don't have much extra material in the fingers to get in the way, and appear well put-together. They fit nice, and the extra padding on the wrist is well-placed and unobtrusive. They did not take very long at all to break in.
I have not crashed in them, so I can't speak to how well they would hold up, but they appear to be a higher-quality than my old Shift gloves, which finally wore through and started ripping after 3 years of heavy use. I'm very happy with these gloves!

This product is very comfortable
Shipping was very fast so thank you Revzilla. When I first got the gloves they fit really tight only because of the leather. Once I got them on and stretched them out they fit perfect now.

Killer price for some quality leather gloves
Alright, I wanted to wait a bit before leaving this review, and I have worn these guys for about 5k miles, now.
The construction quality of the gloves is great. Solid stitching, no excessive stretching or frayed stitches at all. They have decent flex, but do run a little small like others have said. I really like that the stitches are on the interior of the gloves and not exterior like on the a-stars and many other brands that I checked out before getting these. When I think Joe Rocket I do think cheaper, but that is not the case here. My only gripe is that the pinky is slightly longer than what my hands want (maybe i'm physically deformed?) and after riding for a bit I notice that there is some extra fabric on the interior edge between my index and middle fingers. This doesn't cause a huge fuss with me because I usually use the two together for clutch or brake, but I would never consider other gloves if this weren't the case.
Good breathability (is that a word, spell check?), they don't wear down my hands and make them tired, knuckles are nicely covered but not excessive, construction is great and so on...these gloves rock.
