Speed and Strength Rage with the Machine Gloves
I typically wear a medium glove but these in medium were too tight. I like my gear to fit snug so I thought the mediums were fine until I wore them riding and realized they were too tight. So I bought them in large and they are perfect. They have great looks and seem to be made very well. I recommend them but in my experience they run just a little small.

Good product, though I may have gotten a lemon
Overall, fantastic product.
I did mark the comfort down a few notches due to the following issue encountered with the product.
I believe my particular pair may be slightly faulty in the left pinky area. When clenching a fist (as one would while grabbing the clutch), the leather lining crinkles and digs into the center joint in the pinky finger.
At first it was an 'ouch'. After a day of sitting in a traffic jam with a ton of clutch grabbing, it escalated from 'ouch' to 'holy @$*! my finger is infected, swollen and could be mistaken for a red balloon animal by small children'. That lasted about a week, resulting in a small scar on the knuckle.
I still use the gloves and love them. They definitely kept the hide in right place when I had a very low speed dump in gravel last week. However I do have to remember to not curl my pinky up all the way when depressing the clutch so as not to repeat the aforementioned scenario.
Overall, very satisfied with Revzilla, and the purchase, I simply believe I may have gotten a lemon on the stitching of my pair as I've not heard of this issue in other reviews.

One thing I didn't think about before buying these gloves was safety. It turns out that because of the curved racing shape these gloves are made with, you naturally cover the break and clutch while riding. These gloves changed my riding style for the better, made me a safer rider, and eliminated hand fatigue.

This product is worth it's weight in gold.
The Speed and Strength Rage with the Machine Gloves provided extraordinary amount of comfort while riding. For the price I couldn't ask for a better pair.

You Get What You Pay For
I bought these because I wanted quality protection and still be able to use my Android smartphone without having to remove my gloves. I'm pretty satisfied with my purchase. The build quality is great, the knuckle, palm and wrist components provide great protection, and I'm able to very basically navigate my phone.
The comfort and fit are fantastic, and while I can't type fast or very accurately with them on, one handed "swyping" works pretty well and is enough to quickly adjust Google Maps or click an "X" to get the screen you want to see. Just don't expect to compose an email in them.
Overall, if you're willing to pay the premium to have a short glove that you can use with your phone, this fits the bill.

I wear a 2XL in gloves and I ordered my size in this glove and it fits perfectly. I like the comfort of the glove, very snug on my hand, and the protection offered is very good. I like the padding on the top of the knuckles, in particular, along with the knuckle and side wrist protection. In addition, the glove has a funky, aggressive look, and that combined with the yellow-like palm appearance makes it standout out significantly.
The glove could use some more protection on the top of the wrist, as there appears to be none there, and a portion of the wrist is not leather but like a stretchable neoprene material. The only drawback to this is when your pulling on the glove, you have to pay particular attention not to pull on this material, as it appears this could result in premature wearing/tearing and affect the integrity of the wrist protections.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this glove.
