Klim Adventure Glove
Gloves were a little tight to start. However, after several rides they now fit perfectly to my hands.

fingers are too long and skinny on these gloves.. Horrible fit.
After 5 seasons, my Held Namib's needed replacement, but unfortunately, they don't make this model any longer, so I figured I'd try these gloves since they are shorties like the Namibs...
I'm a big guy with large meat-hooks for hands. Not sure why Klim would make the fingers on a 2XL glove long and spindly like a waif or lady. I'm a MAN, baby! ;-)
Wore them once for a 30 mile drive to a friend's house... never again... Surprisingly, my buddy said, "let me try them on" and he loved them... So we swapped - he had a pair of Klim Induction short gloves that he said he hated.. They were 2XL and I tried them on and they fit MUCH better. Ultimately, I will probably go back and find a pair of Held that I like, as the Namibs were awesome.

Best 3 season glove owned. Tested over 12k mi in C/S America.
Best 3 season glove that I have owned. Tested over 12k mi in C/S America over 3 months. It was my go to glove for 90% of the ride. (used the Held Air N Dry Gloves for the cooler/constant rain parts. Not enough time with those to rate, but seem fine).
Size runs smallish, which is not uncommon it seems in many moto gloves. (Seems the USA, in general, has increased sizes in many clothing products, while retaining the same label size.- not sure the have done to gloves also as I don't buy many non moto gloves).
Gloves showing quite slight wear on the palms/finger area that contacts the grips. (after 12k mi, in 3 months, and they got wet a lot in brief showers or high altitude cloud rides- not enough rain to put on the Held Gor Tex), But, overall, still in excellent condition for being ridden almost every day for 8 hrs for 3 months).
Only suggestion is to add a wiper, as I had many days with brief showers, where a wiper would have been quite useful.
I called Klim engineering and requested this feature.
I ride with the Klim Badlands Jacket/Pants. Also highly recommended. (Gaerne Balance Oiled Boots).
Follow up- after 12k scratch/accident free miles through C/S America, I had an accident in the House and lost 7/8 of flesh and c 1/8 bone from my middle finger, left. (luckily surgeon said such a clean cut of the bone, natural regrowth will bring back full functionality, albeit with a little less meat on the bottom and tip). Also, remarkably, he said I was OK to ride a motorcycle after 2 weeks (I didn't mention that it would be from Bolivia to BA, Argentina (or the long way via Chile and up the Brazilian Amazon to Bogota) to get my F800GSA to a shipping point back to the USA.
I called Klim and told them I needed a new pair of gloves with a Modified super big left middle finger. For a modest charge, they modified a new pair of gloves, and shipped 4 days later. Super customer service. (picture of the modified glove attached)

Very nice quality glove at a good price and with good protection
I have been riding with deerskin for years they are fine but don’t offer much protection. I wanted something more substantial but nothing as robust as a racing glove. I did a lot of research and everything I looked at in my price range was a compromise. This is close as I could come to having all the protection features, comfort and style I wanted. The materials construction and fit and finish are outstanding. An XL glove is what I normally wear and this XL was true to size. I ordered the natural tan leather, as opposed to the black, and it looks nice and is aging well. I was out in low 40 degree temps yesterday and with heated grips my fingers were cold. This isn’t’ a mesh glove so it provides some protection against the cold but not much. As for price point I think it is about right, gloves are ridiculously expensive so in comparison I think you get a lot of glove for the price.

Great Fit and Finish
I have KLIM's Badlands Adventure jacket and pants. I have had Klim's gloves before but always wanted something with a bit more protection in a short glove format. I have to say their Adventure glove is just that. MUCH better protection and functionality then what I could find elsewhere. Klim incorporates a pull on tab with heavy stitching to make pulling on the glove MUCH easier. I have big hands and it really helps that Klim has a sizing chart that simplifies ordering the correct size for the rider. The glove is super soft yet tough. Dexterity, function and protection are paramount to Klim and they prove it in this product. SUPER glove. They breath yet wear very well. I should get years of use from these. Highly recommend KLIM products and Revzilla super same day service. Why shop elsewhere.

Great summer value from Klim
The first thing you'll notice on these gloves is how nice the leather is. After many days digging myself out of mud and sand, its as soft as the day I got them.
Seams are all tight after a season of riding. They are dry summer gloves - make no mistake. Even with heated grips, they won't do much for your fingers below 60F. Long rides on the slab will get you too unless its really warm.
My only complaint is that the nylon cord inside some of the piping works its way out by your thumb and tickles a little. Not a big deal.

the Pull handle is the best part of the product
Really, they placed extra leather on the palm side so that it makes pulling the glove into the fingers a easy thing. i liked that and it actually works. the glove fits true to its size rating.
there was a strip of white plastic string that i had to pull out of the glove - it was annoying and was pinching. but everything else is just great.
