Joe Rocket Women's Cleo Gloves
A little wide for my mutant hands
I have long but narrow hands, so it's just hard to find gloves. I had tried these on at the local stealership, so I knew what size I would need to get. I needed a M for the finger length, but my hand width is probably a S (if not XS!) So, the fingers fit, but I had to take them in along the outer edge so there wouldn't be as much bagginess in the palm. Once again, I have mutant lady hands that are long and narrow.
I ordered the gloves in white/black to coordinate with my white Alter Ego 3.0 jacket. Other than my weird size issues, these gloves are pretty and stylish. The gloves breathe very easily so I don't end up with hot sweaty hands during summer riding. The gloves are comfortable and soft, and seem to be pretty durable so far (hoping I never have to put them to the test, though). I like all the extra protective padding on the knuckles. For the price they seem to be a great glove for warmer temperatures.

I bought the cleo 2.0 to wear with my jacket and to not have sweaty hands while riding. The fit is small. I usually wear a small to medium if they're running small. I ordered medium after reading the reviews. The medium was quite snug. After a few wears, they've relaxed and are a doable snug. I have the pink jacket and gloves. Unfortunately the gloves are the hot pink color and not light pink to match the jacket. Well made, good airflow, comfortable after breaking in. Not wild about the thickness over the knuckles, they look sort of like racing gloves.

Inexpensive glove option.
For the money, these are a decent pair of gloves. They fit snugly at first, but the leather has stretched slightly in the few times that I've worn them so that they are just about perfect now.
My only complaint would be the velcro adjustment at the wrist. I apparently have very narrow wrists, in that once I adjust them to fit, they bag and bunch a little oddly. Not enough to be an interference, just a little annoying.
Overall, they seem fairly well made, provide enough ventilation that my hands don't sweat, and fit decently well.

NOT TOO GIRLY :)
I really like these. Quite comfortable and good looking. I wear them for hot weather only.

Needs more color choices
I purchased the gloves to go with the Joe Rocket Cleo 2.0 mesh jacket. I would of liked the glove color to match the color of the jacket purple/black/white but had to settle with the black gloves with white trim. The size runs 1 size smaller so I had to return them and go up one size.

I bought these for the protection and for that reason they're good. According to the chart in the package I should have ordered a large. Typically I am small in jackets, so I thought a medium would be good for gloves. Anyways, protection is good or decent. The only real negative is the horrible flower logo with glitter on the top of the glove. If I keep these I'm ripping the sewn on logo off. Also the wrist is not tight enough . If I close it all the way the velcro doesn't fully attach. So maybe these just aren't the gloves for me.

Great look, tight fit
I ride in So Ca where the weather is mostly warm. I wear these gloves all the time. They are mesh so in the dewy winter mornings I wear a glove liner. By the afternoon, however, I don't need the liners and these gloves are perfect. They are not to hot in the summer either.
I did order a large at first and the fit was too tight. I have long fingers so I ended up exchanging for an XL. Those were still a little snug but have definitely stretched out since I have been wearing them.
The length of the glove is nice. It's long enough to go over the jacket sleeve or under it. The gathering at the wrist helps keep the heat in as well.
I have the black and pink, very stylish without being too girlie. I'd definitely recommend these gloves.

Great gloves, but a little tight
Lovely gloves that match the cleo jacket perfectly. They are a little tight and I have to take off a ring or two when I ride.
