Icon Pursuit Perforated Gloves
great warm weather glove
wore these on a 1000 mile ride in weather from
about 65 to almost 90 degrees. hands were both warm enough and cool enough as needed. they seem to let through a good amount of air and yet the leather is warm enough if temps drop a little. my first order was a medium which I usually wear but I felt the fingers were somewhat long so I exchanged for a small assuming the leather would stretch a little anyway. they were really comfortable for the entire ride. seems like good protection, too.

Great short glove for summer
I bought this to supplement my warmer spring/fall gloves having recently moved to the DC area and dealing with the humidity and more traffic. These gloves took a week or so to break in but offer great air flow, feel good on the throttle / bars, and have okay protection should you go down. Chose these over cheaper shorty gloves based on recommendations on their quality and likelihood to last more than a season or two.
So far very happy with these. Size L fits great (bit snug at first until breaks in). Hands are 9" around palm w/ long fingers. Zero complaints.

Great as a starter Glove.
First pair of gloves I bought when I started riding and have held up great.

Nice glove with good protection
I bought these after trying on several pairs. I can fit between a medium or large glove depending on the manufacturer... I have long fingers so I opted for the large in this glove. At first it fit kind of small... but after I wore them several times, I feel like I've broken them in and gotten a little more wiggle room.
Overall the gloves are pretty comfy, tons of air flow and decent protection. The only thing that I'm unsure about is how long these will last. The leather is pretty thin on the palm side of the glove around the fingers. I could see them tearing pretty easily if you put your hand down.

Some pros and cons
I've only had the gloves for a few weeks. But, I did wear them on a 1200 mile ride through some record hot temps. The gloves breathed well but seemed to fit just a little on the small side. They appear well made, but I won't know the answer to that until I've taken them on and off a couple hundred times. The velcro attachment seems a little suspect, as it is small and has very little surface contact.
The "hard" knuckles are not hard. It feels like they have some thin plastic covering the knuckles, which may provide some protection in the event of a crash.
All and all, a good product, but I was expecting a little more for the price

Great gloves that look sharp and breathe well, a little short in the fingers.
These are great gloves, they look and feel good and they breathe really well. I have the white gloves and I've used these gloves to commute on 100 degree days and it was amazing. It's nice having the comfort and style of leather without the heat.
The fingers are a little short and a little wide for me but i have long skinny digits.
These are perfect summer gloves, I haven't used them in the cold but I imagine i'll have to hang them up in cooler (40º) weather for something warmer because they're so ventilated.

Overall a decent glove. The price seems to be a little high for the quality, but the glove is still has good value. the inside seams can be a little rough, but they did mellow out after a few hours of wearing. The quality and sizing is consistent through both gloves. The only complaint I have is that I would probably expect these to be deerskin at this price point. It may sound silly, but the leather has a plastic like stink to it, probably from the pressed knuckle shielding.

Well, they're gloves man, what do you want? As far as bang for buck goes; these are pretty expensive for some pretty normal full leather gloves. The fit on them is American, so I wear a 2XL in these; while I'd wear XL in Euro.
Tons of airflow; go on easy.
Biggest gripe, in my left glove the seam, which they sew inside bothers my pinky, which becomes annoying and I have to constantly change up my hand position. Sometimes I get it just right and it's never a problem.
