Nice Glove This is a great inner city commuting glove but I wouldn't trust it at higher speeds. Which is why I kind of regret this purchase. Not sure what I was thinking when I purchased these because all I do is ride at higher speeds. Anyways they're comfortable and fit well and will keep your hands warm maybe 40's and up. June 15, 2015
Comfortable gloves I'm between L and XL in glove size, and the L Alpinestars fit me. These are easy to take off and put on. They're good for sliding under your leather jacket sleeves. May 22, 2015
Nice comfortable fit but not suited for cold temps. This is a nice lightweight glove. It fits great and does break in after a few uses. The styling of this glove is great and the knitted cuff makes it easy to fasten my jacket over them for a clean look. The only downside to this glove is that it is limited on when you can wear them. It's really only meant to be worn on days with a specific range of temps because if it is too warm out, your hands will sweat. But if it's too cold, your hands will freeze! I would say this is a good spring to early fall glove. Anything below 46 degrees and my fingers get a little cold. December 29, 2014
The fit is perfect. I bought these for my son, he loves them, they fit perfectly and they feel good. I love the knuckle support, it is very sturdy, in case of an accident he would be well protected. December 29, 2014
Just what I needed I wanted a glove with minimal air flow and good protection. This glove was right on and the price was great! The rating scale requires me to judge air flow. I said excellent becuase it's excellent at NOT allowing air in. That category is not really set up for winter gloves. Anyway, nice fit, nice size, not a bulky glove. I am very satisfied.

A Good Glove This pair of gloves is great and ideal for summer riding. I have them now and since it's getting colder the air flow in these gloves does make it a little chilly. But if you can handle a little cold for short 20-30 minute rides into work then these gloves are great! Once they have broken in they tend to be just a little big if you like that really really snug fit in a glove. Overall they feel great and look awesome against black of any color jacket you're riding in! October 13, 2014
Good lightweight cool weather gloves I was looking for something that would keep my fingers warm without much bulk and that didn't have a gauntlet. These Alpinestars C-1 Windstopper gloves fill that bill perfectly. They are just right for temps from 40F-70F and keep the wind from chilling my fingers to numbness perfectly. My only complaint is that I have a fairly wide base of the hand so the wrist/cuff seam on these gloves is a struggle getting into (as on many other gloves for me), but they run pretty close to size otherwise (XL, matching up well with other make/model gloves). May 20, 2014
Not such a good value... These gloves are extremely comfortable and block the wind rather well, unfortunately even wearing a glove liner my hands still froze as they have no insulation. As far as comfortable temperature range it feels exactly like wearing a non-perforated leather glove, those block the wind equally as well. Not recommended for winter. I ride a street-fighter, with no hand wind protection. Sizing is very standard "American", I wear a medium in work gloves, the medium fit perfect. The hard knuckle protection is nice, and it does have a synthetic leather palm, but it is very thin, I'm not particularly sure they would hold up well for any amount of time sliding on blacktop. The packaging arrived with the picture of a scooter across the top, not very reassuring. The cuff band aids in comfort, but it isn't very tight, not random fly off loose but I could see the possibility in them slipping off in a slide. They look great, feel great, but I wouldn't trust them in a crash and I wouldn't use them for anything less than 40 degrees Fahrenheit. There are far better options out there that will do a better job in safety, warmth, or both. Bottom line, these are not worth the price. March 20, 2014

A shopper asked: Looking at this glove as well as the Orion GTX glove for late season commuting. I'm wondering how they compare for warmth. Also, now using an Icon mesh glove, and wondering if sizing is about the same? I do have long fingers, and am curious if finger length varies between gloves much. Sep 16, 2013

Rossen C: Very comfortable, light-weight glove, I'd say it fits the same as the Icon mesh, maybe a bit looser due to its design. I used it commuting to college over last "winter" in Los Angeles and most days it was perfect, even repels light rain, but as a previous poster said, it's not the warmest glove and in cooler mornings/nights my fingers would freeze, especially at speed.
