River Road Outlaw Vintage Gloves
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.

awesome gloves. awesome price.
I've been wearing these gloves for about a month now. I have absolutely no complaints at all. Its a bare bones glove that has a comfortable gel pad and feels great when riding long distances. The perforation allow for maximum air flow and are fantastic on warmer days. I would recommend these for somekne looking for a great everyday glove in spring, summer and early fall. These are absolutely not winter gloves. Also, did i mention they are affordable as all heck. Highly recommend.

Comfort and classic style
Vintage look with modern features. The padding in the palm makes even skinny grips comfortable and helps to absorb vibration better than any other glove i've used. Perforated leather looks good and lets the hands breathe. Only thing is the thumbs are a hair long, but not enough to be a detractor

Great Gloves, Great Price
I bought these gloves for summer riding and they haven't disappointed yet! I took an ABATE class to learn some better riding skills and wore these gloves. All three days were high humidity and high 80's but the gloves never gave me any problems. The air holes really help with ventilation. It also rained most of the second day and the leather withstood the beating. I wore these gloves over 8 hours each day and the padding in the palm really helped with grip and vibration control. There probably wouldn't be a lot of protection in the case of a major crash, but it would be better than bare skin! I would recommend this to anyone who is price conscious but also wants a great-looking pair of gloves.

buttery soft, and that's about all...
Beautiful gloves, don't think there is any protection... if the big holes don't give it away boy are you in trouble... The holes sometimes line up with my knuckles, unlike other reviewers... WHO AM I KIDDING!!! no one gets these suckers for anything other than a little proetction from bugs and grit! And they are GREAT for that, they flow a ton of air and look great to boot!
