Spidi Jab-R Gloves
actually these gloves are great for everyday use, not being completely in leather allows adequate ventilation on hot days in style are perfect, I have the red and I'm not complaining, I recommend it for anyone looking for quality at a good price

Great gloves for the money
These gloves were true to size, and very comfortable on my first test-ride with them.

This product has great quality and definitely worth the price
This is my first pair of riding gloves and I am completely satisfied with it. Although, in the picture it's a little more gray where the black area supposed to be, but it's all good since I prefer black. It gives really good air flow, but also will keep your hands pretty warm in the 50 degree weather. Not sure about lower. But who uses something other than leather in cold weather. Overall good gloves.

Good pair of gloves for the price range
I got a medium based on this size chart http://sportbiketrackgear2.homestead.com/SPIDI_APPAREL_SIZE_CHART.html with the following measurements A) 8 3/8 Inches B) 8 1/4 Inches.
With RevZilla's Spidi size chart i was a 21.5cm. The medium fits me perfectly apart from a minutely longer index finger bit.
I wore it for a short while to try it out the other day and the thumb sections gave me minor abrasion on the joints when I bend them.
The gloves are great looking and for the closeout price, an awesome buy.

Great glove, Closeout is a deal!
I ordered a XXL based on measuring my hand and the euro sizing. The fit of the gloves is great, though the pinky and pointer finger are a little long. They flow a lot of air, and provide a good amount of protection. Obviously since part of the gloves is mesh you can't expect the same level of protection as a full leather glove, but I think these gloves have leather in all the right places. Overall I am very happy with them!

Best summer gloves I've ever worn
Typically, I will wear out a set of summer gloves in a year or two. This is one glove that I suspect I will have for years to come - they're extremely well-made, unlike a lot of gloves I have bought in the past. Being Italian-made, you would expect them to be expensive, but they're not! I picked these up for just over $60. This is a steal! Why?
Because this is a fantastic glove! It fits, well, like a glove. Snug, but not too tight, and without seams in the ends of the fingers to jam up against your fingers. The palms are covered in large pieces of real leather - good for sliding on the ground, but also good because without seams in the palms, you don't develop calluses. The top is made of mesh, with hard plastic vents over the knuckles and forefinger first joint, which double as crash protection. There is also a hard protector over the ulna (wrist) bone. Those are all great features, but they're not why I love these gloves.
What's great about these gloves is that they are (at least for me) supremely comfortable, fit perfectly, and flow a lot of air. They keep my hands cool, but provide enough solid abrasion protection that I am happy wearing them all of the time. The cuff is a bit longer than my old summer gloves, which I also like. I don't develop calluses wearing them, which has happened with every other summer glove I've owned. The fingertips are well-made, and allow me to easily press the various buttons and GPS touch-screen on my bike.
The only thing I don't like about them is the rather small piece of velcro used for the closure. I wish it was a bit larger, so I could adjust it more or less snug at the cuff.
To my surprise, Motorcycle Consumer News featured these gloves in a review this past month, and they came out on top. So I obviously made a good choice.
My verdict: recommended.
