River Road Firestone Gloves
First Set of Gloves - Comfortable, but the velcro isn't great
Bought this as my first set of gloves, and they fit a little tight when I got them. They've since broken in very well and are very comfortable now. My only real complaint is that the velcro feels like it has no grip after only a few weeks of weekend riding, it just peels right off.
I lowsided with them late this summer, and they stood up very well, saved me from some scrapped up knuckles, the armor is well worth it. Never noticed my hands get hot or sweaty, and the gel helps with the vibration. The only hole worn in them was where I was wearing a rather massive class ring underneath. 7/10, would recommend for a new rider, but don't expect years and years out of them.

Padding on palms
I did not like the padding on the palms. It was counterproductive.

Quality product for the price
These gloves are great summer gloves given the price point. The air flow isn't the best for temperatures above 70-75F, but they are light and protective.
They do need a couple hours worth of time to break in, as they are leather. During the break in period, the armor on the knuckles dig in a bit, but that goes away.
Very comfortable after breaking them in. Very glad I purchased these as my nice weather summer gloves.

Not too heavy, enough air flow but three season and good knuckle protection

Any excellent, semi-retro glove with solid protection
I'm very impressed with the gloves. They fit well and are quite comfortable for a full leather with armor. I was expecting them to be more stiff and a bit bulkier but I was pleasantly surprised to find that they are soft, supple, and pretty minimal in size considering their protection.
They do not at all inhibit my use of the controls on the bike.. It feels very natural as if I had on my shooting gloves. Freedom of movement is excellent.
I like the simple clean look. They go great with the rest of the somewhat retro gear I bought from Rev.

very stylish and comfortable
I love these gloves. They are very stylish and look great on just about any bike you want to ride. They are very comfortable and the reinforced knuckles are great. The one complaint I have is that there are small reinforcements down on the fingers that like to shift around. But overall an excellent product

Excellent for the money
I am very pleased with this purchase. The gloves are very comfortable and the fit is perfect. They were less expensive than many of the gloves I looked at but they have the extra padding in the knuckles that you may not get with other less expensive gloves. The style is simple which I like. If I was being very critical I guess I would say they could be more breathable.

Great reinforced glove for a great price
Bought this product for my dad and he was very pleased with the gloves. Our only concern is some of the knuckle reinforcements can get slightly misaligned making it uncomfortable when you make a fist/grab handle bars, etc.
