River Road Twin Iron Gloves
Great for two season riding
The gloves are a great fit and good quality for the price.
However, they are two seasons, not three.
Riding at higher speeds (>30mph) in weather below 50F for more than 10 min will make your hands really cold. The airflow is good, making them good for warmer temperatures, but not for the spring / late fall.
The range of motion of the fingers / thumb is really good. The little gel patch doesn't do much, but if you ride relaxed, it does seem to help a tiny bit.

Comfy, protective, velcro closure is unneccessary
These gloves are comfy, the gel pads are very nice and the knuckle protectors are extremely comfortable. You don't notice them. They don't breathe very well but what can you expect from solid leather. They do not discolor my hands or shed any sort of leather crumbs, and seem to be very well-made for the price. Please note they are quite short (reach just up to the wrist, no wrist coverage) and the tab closure is unnecessary and tends to rub up on the cuffs of my jacket. They would be better without the velcro tab or with a more flat-lying closure but overall a steal for the price.

Good Price for a step above basic
I got these to replace the free gloves I got with my ride.
I wanted a glove that had a little more padding and some basic knuckle protection. This has both.
I feel less vibe in my hands which helps keep my hands from getting tired.
I usually wear an XL, but this glove's XL is a little loose. noting that would compromise my control, but enough to want to try the large to compare the fit.

This is a simple no nonsense glove. It is great to be able to get a full leather glove with hard knuckle protection for such a reasonable price. The thread and seems are not sewn fantastically, but otherwise a great product.

Great Gloves-Worth the purchase
Unfortunately I don't have these gloves any longer. When I got them they fit great and broke in fast. The only size problem I had was right where the knuckle protectors were felt a little tight when I gripped the bars. And then, on one of the gloves the knuckle protector had shifted just a tiny bit so the edge would rub up against my knuckle. Other than that I thought that they were great gloves. The anti-vibration gel feels amazing and really does help. I plan on purchasing another pair when I get new gloves. I will actually getting a pair of these and a pair of the shorty fingerless style ones.

Bad closure design
Besides running on the small side, which it took a couple weeks to break in -- the closure ripped from very mild use. The stitching is all bad that connects to the closure.

No frills leather gloves at great price.
I bought this gloves while it was on sale and for the price I paid, I believe it is a great bang for buck. It's an all leather glove that is soft and thin but protective. It has a thin soft liner which helps with the feel of the glove. It has molded protector on the knuckles and reinforced joints for protection but without sacrificing articulation. It has good padding in key ares but I just wish the gel palms covered more of the palm area for a more comfortable grip. I have never had leather gloves before as most of the ones I have tried felt like boxing gloves thus severely limiting my dexterity and this is the first ones that actually really loved! I've put a couple hundred miles on these gloves and so far they have held up. I've gone freeways speeds at 40 degree temp for about an hour commute and they were a bit cold especially along the perforated top, note that I don't have heated grips or hand guards. So anything lower would freeze your hand, which I've also tried in these gloves.
