Icon Pursuit Stealth Gloves
Decent bang for your buck, but you get what you pay for
My first pair of gloves were also Icon, the twenty-niners.
They were cheap but worked for awhile. After some time they started to fall apart, and while I still have them, they are full of holes. It felt very unsafe to use them as my main riding gloves.
The Icon Pursuit gloves are noticeably better. They have a more snug fit, have upgraded knuckle protection, and feel thicker overall. The 29'ers felt like wearing nothing, whereas the Pursuits feel like they actually offer some protection. While they feel like a very good glove, especially for only $75, I have noticed 1 or 2 areas in the sewing that are already falling apart. I'm not sure if this is just a characteristic of Icon equipment, or if it's just because they are cheaper gloves. Overall I was instantly happy with my purchase of these gloves, but the question is; how long will they last? I am worried they might fall apart as quickly as the other pair did.

Reeally great looking gloves. Very confortable, slightly large for my hands, but the chart is very helpfull. I´m thinking in ordering the perforated ones.

I have worn these now for a few weeks in the sun and in the rain. I hardly feel them on my hands. As a new person to the sport I was very reluctant to dish out the $$ for these gloves, but I am glad that I did. Great service and fast shipping from Revzilla.

You can't go wrong with these gloves. I have had them for over 2 months with very hot days, and mornings in the 50s. They are comfortable and cool. While in a rainstorm they performed well, dried fast and will keep your hands somewhat warm when needed.

Great Look - Great Airflow - Great Fit
I REALLY like these gloves. Besides the menacing look, they really allow air in. I love that they're pretty low profile and not puffy.
I ordered Medium and they're a tad tight, but I much prefer that over a tad loose. I'm sure after several wears they'll break in perfectly.
The ONLY thing I could say that is somewhat bothersome is the stitch that is around my left thumb. When gripping the handlebars I have to make sure I've adjusted that stitching first, or you can feel it.
Overall, great glove!

Great glove with one annoying feature.
Fit and finish on this glove certainly met my expectations (which were high due to the price and positive video review).
My one and only complaint is; I wish the manufacturer had left off the protrusion on the palm side for the storage snap, which attaches the gloves to each other when not in use. It ruins the appearance of an otherwise beautiful glove for a feature I'll never use. If Icon made this glove without the storage snap/tab, I would have given the glove 5 stars instead of 4 stars.
