Joe Rocket GPX 2.0 Gloves
Roomy fingers. Great airflow.
These are my second pair of gloves after buying a size too small in some non-gauntlet Joe Rockets. These are a little snug in the palm. While breaking them in, they would leave impressions in my thumb, palm, and back of my hand. In contrast, the fingers seemed a smidge too long and loose. Just struck me as odd my fingers wern't snug against the tips. Airflow is perfect as far as I'm concerned. I've ridden in 90 degree F weather and 52 degree F weather. My hands have been just fine in both. In cold weather, the gauntlets prevent air from going up your jacket sleeves. In warm weather, my hands never got too hot. I plan to wear them all weather until they fall apart. Definitely a good buy for me. Highly recommended.

Best bang for the buck out there
I made the mistake of buying these guys in M, where I'd usually be an M with Icon and an L in A*. Initially I'd get pain the the knuckles and thumbs from the fingers being too short, but after I soaked them in water and rode with them all day they loosened up and while the fingers are still a small bit tight- the rest fits excellent and is comfortable. I feel well protected, not too bulky either. For me these are great in 55-85* temps in street riding.

Gloves fit well and are comfortable for all but the thumbs.
The gloves are comfortable for the most part. My only issue, the seams on the distal end of the thumb on both gloves. After forty-five minutes or so, my thumbs tingle and go numb. All other digits are good. To stop this problem, I can't pull the thumb of the glove on tight. The pressure from the grips pulls the seams too tight, so I have to leave room to compensate. Too bad the seams are not finished better. It's too soon for the durability question and I do not want to test the Protection question.

Good product, large sizing
Purchased this product on sale, good bang for the buck, seems like a good glove, however as other reviewers said the sizes run large. I am an XL in most brands of gloves eg. icon, scorpion, and ordered the XL in these gloves and they are very large, I'm still using them but consider going a size down in these gloves.

For the price, I am very happy with these gloves. The first day, they pinched in a couple of spots, but the second day they were broken in and so comfortable I forgot I was wearing them. Good protection for the price and comfortable after break-in.

Good street glove
Third Joe Rocket glove I've owned. Previously owned a pair of speed master gloves and the first edition GPX gloves. Old model gloves had the separate knuckle guard which reduces tension across the knuckles, increasing comfort a little. The new gloves have the knuckle guard stitched in. That's not a huge deal but the old glove won that feature. Old glove knuckle guard was a hard piece of plastic with very little flex. New glove has a piece of flexible plastic over the knuckle. Old glove wins on knuckle protection. Old glove had internal stitched seems. The new glove has external stitched seems. The inside of the new glove is much smoother and comfortable due to the external stitching. The fit and finish of both gloves are good. The palms on both appear equal in quality. The rest of the gloves appear top be equal in quality. The old glove Velcro closure over the wrist were not the same length. Velcro closures appear to be equal length on the new gloves. Minus the knuckles and slightly different features they are essentially equal in quality, fit and finish, and protection. They are more comfortable which makes up the differences. If they could have the old knuckles on the new gloves they would be really good gloves. Don't hesitate they are great street sport gloves.

I bought these because of the price and style. Those I knew were good before they came in. After I received these, they exceeded my expectations. They have held up really well and have not disappointed in the least. they stay rather cool with the vents, and the grip is excellent. Haven't had the need for "protection" yet, give thanks, but with the substantial construction, I have no doubts they will work as designed.
