River Road Outlaw Vintage Gloves
great style great price
These gloves were a great buy. I love the distressed dark brown leather and for less than $30 it's a no brainer for a summer glove.
I like to wear gloves even in the summer heat and these provide good ventilation. Naturally this comes at the expense of protection but there is a good pad on the palm that I hope I never have to use.
About the fit...I bought the large and I feel as though this is the right size for me as anything smaller would be tough to pull over my hand especially if it were hot out. The fingers are just a bit long for me in the large size but that is likely due to my hand size and shape. I have somewhat webbed fingers which makes it hard to pull the gloves down all the way. In fact, I buy Medium/large "cadet" sized golf gloves for just this reason.
Only had them for a couple rides thus far so can't speak to the durability but I can't imagine they will fall apart on me.
Bottom line, great bang for the buck so don't stress the fit so much and just buy them.

I wanted to like them.
I was looking for a set of gloves with some ventilation. These looked to fit the bill with not a big price tag. I like the gloves except for the Gel in the palm. At first I thought the gloves were uncomfortable but I just need to let it break in and for me to get used to it. I couldn't. I took a razor blade and removed the gel from the palm. The gel is just a flat square of gel (nothing special).
The gloves are much better now and I like them much better without the gel. The gloves are unlined so you can feel the seems and seem overlaps in the fingers. There are better options out there for light leather vented gloves.

Excellent Quality Glove
these are a perfect Summer Glove, high quality, comfortable - I have had these for 3 years (the set I ordered are a backup) this means I don't want to be without them.
I highly recommend these Gloves

These run slightly larger than I expected. Per the measurements on the sizing chart, I needed (and ordered) a large. The fit is a bit loose so I probably really needed a medium. These are a very thin, lightweight leather which is what I was looking for. Very comfortable to wear and so far, I haven't had the issue of the leather bleeding as another reviewer had mentioned. Overall the quality is great especially for the price.

Basic but great
I bought these to take my rider education course just so I didn't have to spend a boat load up front. They are made of a thin leather with a gel palm pad and thats basically it. Great flexibility and air flow but if these things touch the ground they'll basically disintegrate which you should be expecting for the price. as a basic cheap glove, they're great

These gloves are fantastic, especially for the price. I found they do fit a little snug, but have stretched out a bit. The holes in the tops of the hand and fingers allow for great ventilation when you are moving. They are a bit warm when at a standstill, but you'll have this with leather gloves. The padded palm is a great touch and protects my hands, while keeping me comfortable.
I would say there are only two drawbacks:
- They are a bit snug, especially at first, and leave goofy patterns on the fingers when removed. The next size up would be too large, overall. The finger length on the pinky is about 1/2 inch too long, while the others are perfect.
-The dye wears off onto the skin. I was wearing them on quite warm days, which could have contributed to it leeching. (Sweaty hands and so forth). My hands were a bit brown/red and smelled like jerky. The dye did wash off fairly easily.
Because of the tight fit on the fingers and dye leeching, I opt to remove my engagement and wedding bands. Once they are broken in all they way, I imagine I'll stick the rings back on while wearing the gloves.
All-in-all I absolutely love these gloves. The price can't be beat, protection is there, and they are very stylish.
