Joe Rocket Women's Cleo Gloves
Short fingers - returned
I tried these on and the fingers are very short. Now, I do have very long fingers for a woman and when I ordered a large based on the width of my hand I expected it to fit as I don't have problems with other gloves when I buy in large or XL. My review is hopefully to influce ladies who need a shorter finger length to order these. They appear to provide a lot of protection and they are as they appear in the pics. I can't speak to air flow, comfort or durability because I didn't use them. Therefore my disclaimer is that I didn't want to sway overall ratings for this product just because they didn't fit me so I selected Average across the board. These seem great for some but not for me.

May need significant breaking in
I bought these after borrowing a pair from a friend and trying on a pair at a local store. Both of those pairs fit great. These, in the same size, came so tight that I could barely get my hands into them. After several hours of use, the left loosened up a bit. The right is still uncomfortably tight to the point my thumb goes numb after riding for 20 minutes. A size up is way too big. Had to get some different gloves. Other than that, I really like these. May keep trying to break them in.

Order next size up
Ordered a medium and it was tight. Had to return it for the next size up.Gloves are not too flashy, simple and does the job. Overall great gloves for a reasonable price.

Great summer glove at a great price
Some of the other gloves I looked at in this style were double even triple the price. My boyfriend picked these out for me after I over looked them for the low price. They are leather palms that in my opinion are a must for gloves and they have knuckle protection that was obnoxious. They are mesh in the colored part too for comfort and breath-ability. They are also not overly feminized with flowers, butterflies and bright colors.
Very modest and good quality glove!

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.
