Spidi S-1 Gloves
The gloves are comfortable after wearing and stretching
I measured my hands as described in the Revzilla videos for all gloves and this product. By these measurements, I was a medium. By fit testing in a store, I have always been between a medium and large based on different manufacturers' design and cut. These leather gloves were tight when I received them as was anticipated based on leather. Over the past month they have stretched to a comfortable fit in the areas around the palms and knuckles. The one issue that I had with the gloves was that my thumbs were way too snug based on length; the other fingers were okay. I normally ride covering the clutch and brake by habit. It was actually uncomfortable and a bit painful with the thumbs when manipulating the turn signals and other hand controls. It has taken some intentional, continuous stretching by pulling the leather and pushing from the inside to solve the thumb length problem, but the fit is getting better. The gloves have been comfortable temperature-wise from about 55 degrees and up. The Velcro at the wrists is a positive.

Nice glove for Sport Touring Applications
Looking for a nice lightweight glove for warm, nice weather sport touring. Watched the Revzilla video, wanted an understated style, decent protection, and good fit. Gloves work great, leather feels terrific, overall very pleased. Very nice on the bike.

nice gloves, not too flashy, good value
got these gloves with my jacket a few weeks ago
i've got some pretty long fingers so i went with an XL, so far I'd say the fit is at a 95% comfort level. Obviously its leather so it will adapt, but still, I'm thinking maybe I should have went with a XXL, but thats on me, I'll stick with these XL's though.
Style is great, I like that they're just all black and not trying to look too crazy/badass/iamgoingtopunchyou, if you know what I mean (<cough>ICON<cough>).
Good entry level glove, great features and fits well around the wrist, and not to mention you're getting a high brand leather glove at a good price. good stuff

Comfortable warm weather glove
It's been so hot in Southern California this summer. I wanted a pair of warm weather gloves that still offered some protection. These seem to fit the bill. They are comfortable, true to size, and offer what appears to be decent knuckle protection. I'm not sure how long the palm would last dragging across asphalt and hope to not find out! Ventilation is ok. This definitely strikes me as a true three season glove. I'm happy with it.

Excellent value for money
A well constructed, sturdy glove. More suited for cool weather as ventilation is restricted. Perfect for Autumn (Fall).

Nice glove for 2.5 seasons
Sizing: Video suggested to get a size larger and I got size L although my normal size was M in gloves. I think the fit is true to size, so there is no need to buy a size larger. I returned mine and got M, it fits well now. Keep in mind that I have European hands with 22.25 cm circumference.
Comfort: The leather is neither very stiff, nor very soft. The knuckle protector is not intrusive. What is intrusive is the stitches inside the fingers, towards the tip. There is a significant leather left after the stitches that stick out and pushes between your fingers and fingernails. I got the inside out and cut excessive leather sticking out. It is much more comfortable now.
Value: I used a Joe Rocket Sonic glove before for two seasons, it got ripped in the palm. The leather on this glove looks sturdier and more durable. There is just the right amount of air flow, won't break any records though. Very hot summer days might be sweaty, but there is a liner, so no color bleeding. For the price, I think it is a better value than JR Sonics.
Customer Service: Excellent as always. Return and refund for the wrong size was the quickest I have ever seen.

great summer glove
I ordered medium - normally would order a large or 'ML" in a golf glove but I measured first then used the size chart - perfect fit! Good length, well made and comfortable. Maybe a bit thin - if you want more protection you may want to go up the line.

Great pair of gloves
Very comfortable with just enough armor protection and great grip. Love them.
