Icon Pursuit Stealth Gloves
The perfect glove
I have had these gloves for about 9 months.
What I have liked the most about these gloves is the simple design that isn't too showy. They are also very comfortable. I rated the air flow as average because with these gloves you don't get too much air flow. This, however, is actually just what I wanted. (I purchased the non-perforated pair) I usually can get cold pretty easily so wanted the extra warmth. I actually occasionally wore these gloves last winter when I wasn't riding and they were more than sufficient, although the knuckle armor wasn't necessary if I wasn't riding. (Winters here are usually around 20° F.) If I was riding in those temps, they would not be warm enough at all. This summer, I've worn them in 90° weather and that's been ok for me, although I do get pretty sweaty palms then. I've used them on and off the bike, even in winter to clear my truck of snow, and have noticed no significant wear and tear yet and that's with snow, ice, and salt.

Fits like an......Icon Pursuit Perforated Glove!
I normally wear a 2XL, but most reviews said these gloves were on the smaller side, so I went with 3XL. They fit perfectly. The left is a little hard to get on, but once on, I hardly notice them. 3 hour ride on a 95° day, and my hands weren't even damp. The knuckle protection could be a little harder, but compared to my old $40 perforated leather gloves, it's a big improvement. Price is high compared to some, but very happy with these gloves.

Fit and look good, nice protection and air flow.
The size is good, maybe on the slightly smaller size but I think they will stretch a little with more use. Protection is where you want it and seems durable.
They do not work at all with touchscreen phones. I knew that going in but some of the alpinestars I had weren't made for it either but they had a small patch of leather on the finger tip area that actually worked. No biggie, next time I might think about the touchscreen version if the price comes down.

Had to get another pair.
I have had a pair of Icon Pursuit Perforated Gloves for at least 10 years and finally wore them out. The perforated leather on the inside of the gloves, near the thumb on the palm, wore thru. It was worse on the throttle side. I cannot complain because of all the miles I have put on these gloves over 10 years in sweltering heat. I am sure all that sweat helped weaken the leather. I did treat the gloves with leather preservative. So, even though the price has gone up on the Icon Pursuit, I could not find another glove like this one. The fit and feel of these gloves are like none other. I can only hope this next pair will serve me just as well. They don't offer the maximum protection, but in extreme summer heat, a little compromise is in order. After much research, I decided to order from Revzilla because of their great web site and videos on just about every product.

Nice addition to the glove collection
As any long time cyclist understands, if you are going to ride all year in all conditions, you are going to need to build a collection of gloves. I recently completed a long multi-day ride where I collected a number of blisters due to a combination of heat, sweat, and vibration. So I decided I needed a glove that was going to have better ventilation. I just completed my first extended ride (200 miles) with these and I have to say they performed well given the conditions (60's and misty at the start, dry 90's later in the day). The ventilation was very good and I had good dexterity with the glove on (helmet strap on and off with the gloves on). The fit is excellent, I have long skinny fingers and the XL is snug all around the fingers and hands which means they probably run small for the average XL hand. My only real issue is that I would say that palm protection is modest at best and wrist protection is non-existent (not really a surprise given the design). I will be wearing these for warm days of touring on the road but I will be pulling on something else for days where there is more likelihood of the rubber side not staying down.

Great Summer Gloves
This gloves looks great and fits well. Since I'm only riding when the weather is warm I would like to get something that has ventilation and protection. Ventilation part is great but protection part feels little cheap. I have this gloves for a month now and I really like them. I would recommend this product to everyone who is looking for a protected summer gloves.

Cool Summer Gloves (pun intended)
I have used around a dozen Summer gloves over the past 30 years. These Icons are the best I have experienced so far. They are as cool and comfortable as can be achieved in Mid-Atlantic Summer weather. The Pursuits appear to have a bit more strength and protection than my previous "favorites" but I have not met ground to verify this...yet.

Perfect fit, very comfortable and does the job.
Needed a new pair of gloves for this seasons riding. After searching and watching the awesome videos, decided these were for me. Arrived quickly, and have not been disappointed..
