Icon Pursuit Stealth Gloves
Good style, Could be more durable.
I bought these for a long trip from Michigan to Wyoming. They held together, however some of the stitching started to come loose. In addition some of the velcro on one of the straps became frayed after only a few wears. It still held down the strap, though.
As I said before they held together for the entire trip (about 2 weeks 4500+ miles), but the quality of the stitching could have been better.
They fit well. I wear a small and they were a bit snug to start with, but after a few times taking them on and off they started to fit a a little better as the leather started to form.
Luckily, I haven't had to test the durability of the knuckle protection, but they seem sturdy enough to take a fall.
These aren't the perforated kind so there wasn't much airflow, but I never felt like my hands got overly hot, even going through the Bad Lands and High Plains. They kept my hands fairly warm in some of the cooler weather when it would get down to the mid 40s in some of the mountain passes.

Nice but won't last.
Pros: This glove is super nice. It is sleek and allows me to put my hands into pockets and bags easily. Feeling the instruments on my bike is easy. It has decent protection overhand.
Cons: The leather on the fingertips, especially on the thumb, stretched out in less than a week from using the turn signals and such. It is perforated on the fingertips and the holes have become ovals revealing the skin on my fingers.

Great Summer Glove
Excellent quality. For me, many gloves are too long in the fingers. These fit really good, almost too good. I do feel the seams in the finger tips, not to the point of discomfort, but noticeable. This is much preferred to having excuses finger tips. Excellent airflow. Easy on, easy off. I put a very small piece of velcro on the end of the wrist strap to prevent the strap from laying flat to make it easier to grab with a gloved hand. Otherwise, stylish and well made. Would definitely buy again.

It fits like a...*ahem*, glove.
There isn't really much to say. Upon moving back from overseas I needed something study yet a little stylish to go with my 600RR (also black).
The knuckle armor is both stylish and protective, as well as unrestrictive. At times I have to travel for as long as two hours at a time to visit family, though at the end of the ride my hands still feel cool.
Initially the size felt slightly big in the fingers, though after a week of riding they conformed to my skin and now feel like a second skin.
For the price I paid the product is totally worth it. I wholeheartedly recommend this product and hope you make the right (obvious) choice.

Icon all the way
I have worn these Icon Pursuit gloves all summer, and really appreciate the comfort and quality of all my Icon gear. The perforations let a substantial amount of air through, so as the weather starts to turn, they are a little cold for the PNW. My only gripe would be the velcro closure. The angle is a little awkward, but you get used to it quickly. I wish these were available without any closure, as these short gloves would be fine with just a little elastic.

Great riding gloves for the summer
I ordered the small and they fit great. Air flow is excellent and I think these are great gloves.

Decent summer glove
These are pretty decent for a minimalist summer glove. The mesh seems to do it's job well. I can't speak to the protection other than to say it appears about the same as other gloves in this style. They bunch up a little around the inside of the thumb, but that seems to be getting better as they break in. My only real complaint is how easily the outer black layer gets scuffed- and shows the light gray interior.

Great Warm-Weather Gloves
I needed a nice pair of armored gloves for use in the warmer months, and these fit the bill perfectly. The ventilation keeps my hands cool, and the armored knuckles feel solid.
I purchased a Large pair, despite usually wearing small or medium everything else (5'9" 135lbs). I used the size chart and, though skeptical, ordered the large. They fit perfectly, so keep that in mind.
