Great style, so-so quality
I'm an unabashed Roland Sands fan. I wish he'd design home furnishings so I could really decorate my man cave! My Roland Sands Hesher jacket is my favorite, go-to jacket. My parts wish list is several pages long just from all the Roland Sands stuff on it.

That's why it pains me so much to write a review of a Roland Sands product in which I do not recommend it.

As always the styling is spot on. If it were simply about looks I'd give an enthusiastic thumbs up to the Barfly gloves and call it a day. My tobacco brown gloves look awesome...I so wish I had a Ronin jacket (in tobacco, of course) to go with them. Unfortunately it starts to fall apart once you look past aesthetics.

The leather itself seems to be of a good quality and feels soft and supple. The stitching and seams, however, are barely adequate (at best). I've had gloves costing less than half of what the Barfly gloves cost that impressed me more in this area. The quality of the stitching isn't even uniform throughout the same glove, especially around the knuckles. In the attached picture you can see how the knuckle material on one finger is stitched down securely while the material on the finger next to it almost appears to be coming loose. This doesn't bode well for the long term durability of these gloves and is, frankly, unacceptable at this price point.

Worse is the fact that the gloves are not a uniform size. I had to check the tags to make sure I had two size large gloves. The right glove fits like, well, a glove. The tip of my index finger just barely reaches the top of the glove and is just where I like it. The left index finger is much longer, with at least a quarter inch of extra space. I'd almost think I had two different sized hands were it not for every other pair of gloves I own fitting fine. Some people might never pay much attention to a little extra slack in one of the gloves but I find it maddeningly irritating every time I put it on.

This all leaves me in a bit of a pickle. I purchased these gloves based on how they look and shoddy quality and uneven sizing won't change the fact that they are gorgeous. However, will I be able to put up with subpar gloves just because they look good? I don't think I will bother with exchanging them (unless Revzilla wants to try sending me a left medium and right large) as I doubt that my issues are isolated. No, I'm resigned to keeping them with the understanding that they are the glove equivalent of a trailer queen: Seen more than actually used.

Such a pity...who would have thought Made in Pakistan wasn't synonymous with high quality?

Disproportion
Notice when trying on the glove the thumbs were not the same length. Lined them up together and there is a noticeable difference in the length. The stitching are not symmetrical comparing the left and right gloves. Figure this should be accounted for since you pay a premium price, you should get premium quality.

Hope you have better luck than me with these gloves
First pair size M right glove was noticeably smaller than the left so ordered a L. Second pair stitching was coming apart on the one glove so ordered another pair. Third pair one glove had a totally different stitch pattern than all of the other gloves, looked like a different style. I returned all of them. I thought Roland Sands was top quality, it's not. P.S. Revzilla was great and accommodating as usual. Just hated paying to ship them back.

Fits like a glove
This is beautiful, what is it? Velvet?

While the exterior is tough and sturdy, the inside is lined with a very soft and *very* comfortable fabric. No break-in period seems to be required whatsoever. The fingers are flexible right where you need it on that first ride out.

I normally wear a large, and the large fits perfectly, so sizing is spot on.

I've never worn a more comfortable glove for any sport. Even the velcro has just the right amount of retention to make it easy to slip on and off.

Quite a bargain for the price, and they look and feel better in -person.

Good protection
Planted my palm on the asphalt at ~30 mph. Palm of glove came apart, but not a scratch on my hand. Sprained wrist pretty good, but again not a scratch. I ordered another pair the next day had them in three days. Worth every penny.

Good quality, good fit
I bought the black Barflys (size small) about 6 months ago after my previous gloves started falling apart. I'd had difficulty finding gloves that fit well because the fingertips, especially the pinkies, often tend to be too long for me. The Barflys, however, fit great. They're very comfortable and are easy to pull on and off, as well as to adjust with the wrist velcro patch. Air flows through them nicely.

So far, they're also holding up well with no signs of loose seams or other problems. My only complaint is that the tops of the fingers have some padding to them but no armor, which would have been nice.

Good glove for a great price
I bought these in brown for $70. Great price. They beat anything in that range at cyclegear. The leather is soft. The gloves have a nice look, and meet my needs. Not a lot of protection, and they fit a hair small. If you are past the middle of the size, go 1 size larger.

Just not what I expected...
I picked up a pair of the Barflys in tobacco to match my Ronin jacket. I was a little disappointed.

I wear an XL in American gloves and the fitment is true to size if you ignore manufacturing errors. In my case, the right index finger is longer than the left (which fits perfectly) by about a quarter of an inch. If you look closely at the "action shot" for the product above, you can see the extra length in the model's left index finger. I'm assuming (from this and other reviews) that Roland Sands has been having manufacturing issues overseas and quality control is lacking.

The design of the glove is spot on and looks good.

The leather quality appears cheap and thin. It doesn't match the color and quality of the Ronin. I have inexpensive driver (not driving) gloves that offer more protection.

The price point isn't exorbitant for riding gloves, but it's definitely getting up there. Certainly for this price I expected better all around quality. Having said that, I wasn't so disappointed that I returned them. I've been on the hunt for a pair of dark brown driver gloves that would suit, but haven't had much luck. These will do in the interim.

If you're considering a black pair of Barflys, I would recommend taking a look at the Speed & Strength Stars and Stripes gloves. I was happier with the quality and apparent durability of these gloves and they're considerably less expensive.

Terrible Quality - Don't bother
I've been riding with these glove for about six months and there are so many weak points. The seems in the knuckle went out after about four months. Now the stitching at the bottom of one the gloves has come undone so ever time I use the velcro strap to secure the gloves on the velcro pulls away from the gloves.

Looked like a well made, stylish summer riding glove. Finding understated riding gear is surprisingly hard, either you look like a Power Ranger, a Son of Anarchy or some throw back cafe racing hipster. These goes seemed to ride the line between all three of these stereotypes.
Ivan T on Jul 26, 2015
I was looking for a vintage brown glove to go with a jacket I use under certain moto/weather combinations. I don't usually fit gloves well off-the-rack, and I am particular about fit, so I'll not know the specifics until after they arrive. I was skeptical because a great deal of the feedback I read was negative about quality...I'm kind of particular about that, too; we shall see.

Thought about going with the Dezel/Diesel but the reviews on the Dezel made me think the zipper might be a problem, and since this one doesn't have a zipper I thought it might be able to take a little more abuse.
Shannon P on Apr 29, 2014
love the simplicity and color of these gloves. i'm not planning to race around so it didn't make sense to wear something too heavy duty. have really high expectations so i'll be sure to write a better review once i have a few days with them.

Scott L on Oct 25, 2016
If I measure about 8 3/4 inch which size do you think would fit best? I was thinking large but I don't know if that would be a little too big once they were broken in. Thanks
A shopper on Sep 3, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Depends on which hand you are talking about. Large should work but don't be surprised if the left glove is larger than the right one, especially in the index finger.
