River Road Twin Iron Shorty Gloves
Really nice gloves
These fingerless gloves seemed to combine all the features I was looking for in a shorty: light weight, breathable, and comfortable, with hardened knuckles and padded palms. They fit true-to-chart measurements, with convenient pull tabs for easy on/off. Construction is a 100% cowhide outer shell, and a 100% polyester inner shell that may help prevent black-dyed fingers after a long ride. Stealthy reflective piping adds a little visibility with headlight illumination, and stitching seems good. Longevity may increase by keeping them supple with leather conditioner.

Cheaply made gloves
These gloves only survived 2 times out with me on my bike and they are already tearing at the seams. I was hoping for a better made product that could last a little touring, but that simply is not the case with these gloves. I will not be purchasing any other products from their company.

Slow on/off at first but breaks in quickly.
I have needed new fingerless gloves for quite a while, but wasn't finding any that I liked. I came across these and figured I would give them a try. I have large hands and ordered 3XL and they fit perfectly, but were a bit snug at the wrist opening putting them on and taking them off. They are breaking in nicely. I may order a second pair to keep on hand.

I have Dianese full finger gloves for cooler and colder weather and for complete hand protection. However, I was looking for a spring and summer glove that offered better tactile feel of my bike's controls and more skin exposure than a full-fingered glove. This glove meets those goals as they are not a full finger glove and is very comfortable to wear. The leather glove has knuckle protection and ample skin protection of the covered areas. Fingers are about half exposed. It's nice to have options depending on the type of riding you're doing and the weather conditions. Having two different of gloves at your disposal I find very helpful.

Comfortable shorty gloves
Have to say that I'm pretty happy with these gloves.. Two things stand out. The pull tabs are very handy when taking the gloves off and the gel palms are comfortable on long rides.

Quality grade rich leather with Great knuckle protection
I usually wear a size medium to large in a full glove but since open finger glove are a pain to remove I opted for the extra large from past experience, and it was a good thing I did because it was initially still very tight.
Currently winter weather prevents m/c riding so break-in time for these open finger gloves are limited to wearing them in house watching TV, etc and while driving my truck, so after a few days and many hours they have loosened somewhat.
But I still struggle to remove each glove taking about 20 plus seconds each to remove which seems actually longer than 20 sec's, even with the finger pull tabs they have compared to the quicker 3 to 4 sec's it takes for my other worn pair of 17 yr old open finger leather gloves I have that also once took probably as long to remove when they were new.
Overall I like the fit - feel and looks of these gloves and look forward to them becoming my new warm weather riding gloves, and never need to really use the hard knuckle protection they offer except if I have to knock someone in the mouth?
