Joe Rocket Cleo SR Women's Gloves
Fit is good, little long on my short fingers. So comfortable, don't know they're on while riding.

They're really nice
I bought these gloves last year and I'm still using them everyday. They're really durable. Feel like I could take someone out with these xD But the only flaws are that they're kinda hard to keep clean cause you can't just throw them in the washer and be done with it. Guess that's most ride'n gear though. :p and they go a little small. Guess they figure girls should have tiny hands. I got a medium and the length of the fingers are fine but they are very snug. Don't wear rings with these. Trust me. ;D
I love them though. Wore them through rainstorms and texas summer heat. They're totally worth it. c:

Liked padded knuckles, tight fit and fingers were 1.5" too long. Sent them back.
I loved the looks of the gloves, especially the padding in the knuckle area. They were tight but figured they would stretch some upon wearing but, the fingers were all way too long- like about an inch and a half so had to send them back.

Good glove, Ok for the money, fitment issues
I bought this glove for my wife for some mild-warm weather touring. For this price, the quality is there but the biggest issue has been fitment. We measured the palm measurement given by Joe Rocket to buy a medium sized glove. The MD turned out to fit great in the palm area but about 3/4" long in some of the fingers! This makes it very awkward glove to use. We needed the glove in a pinch so have since kept the size.
Another note. This glove is very much a summer or warm weather glove. It has great ventilation but will not keep your hands warm below 60 deg. F.

Great summer glove; runs a bit small
This glove has a great and functional combination of armor over the knuckles, padding where needed, and combined with good air flow for summer riding. They are comfortable right out of the bag. My hand measures to require a size "small," but that was too tight. The medium size is perfect for me. Good glove. Looking forward to riding with them a lot this summer.

a great glove
I purchased these gloves in June of 2012. I ride pillion with my husband and started riding solo this past spring. I am small-framed, with small hands and fingers (ring finger is a size 5), so I needed pair of gloves that would fit snugly and svelte while riding in order to maximize my use of the clutch and break and minimize hand fatigue. I also wanted sturdy knuckle protection, and plenty of ventilation while also being able to keep my hand warm in the evenings.
I would say the Cleo glove meets all of these requirements excellently. While the mesh on the tops of the fingers doesn't look like much, a nice breeze zips right through (which is wonderful, especially with the hot streak we've been having here). Conversely, riding home at night or in the cooler evenings when I'm wearing long sleeves and the wind layer in the jacket, my hands stay comfortably warm in the wind.
The knuckle protection is injection molded plastic, feels very solid, and covers its respective area well. The joint in between the two pieces helps with fit and comfort, as does the padding underneath the armor.
I ordered a small and they fit perfectly, perhaps a tiny bit tight, which is desirable in a leather palmed glove. I have worn them at least ten different times since receiving them and the leather has loosened up to a kind of custom-fitted feeling. If you're looking for a breathable, streamlined, and sturdy glove, I would highly recommend the Cleo.
