River Road Laredo Women's Gloves
I took my scooter class yesterday and brought these gloves with me. When i open them in my class, both of them were for my LEFT hand! Also the glove itself runs on the smaller side, but the fingers are pretty long. I have extra space even that i have long fingers.

Not Very Comfortable
I bought these gloves because I wanted something simple to wear for chilly days, or for riding home at night when it cools off. Just something to keep the wind off my hands and add some protection. These gloves do a decent job at that. They also fit me pretty well. I usually wear a medium in gloves, and these were right on the money for size. My complaint with them is that I don't find them comfortable. The stitches are on the inside of the glove, and "poke out" quite a bit. After some time on the bike, they would begin to dig into my hand and really get annoying. Also, the gel padded palm seems like a really nice feature, but it doesn't flex as much as I think it should, therefore making the feel of your grip very awkward. Not sure how else to put that. I was much more comfortable riding with no gloves than with these on. I finally got fed-up with them during a bike trip and bought another pair of gloves made by a different brand to replace these.

Bought this gloves along a River Road leather jacket, overall they are good but I was expecting them to be a little bit longer on the wrist area, now that I put the jacket and gloves on there is a gap in between that air gets into it, had to get longer gloves later on, but besides that you can't beat the value Revzilla is offering for this leather gloves.

You get what you pay for
I purchased these gloves because I didn't need a ton of protection, and wanted a simple look. I have worn them at most six times, and just blew the stitches out of one of the gloves between the fingers. Not durable at all.

Proper fit except for fingers
The leather on these is not nice. They are not asthetically pleasing. The gel pads are thin. Almost pointless.
Despite these things, for a $30 glove I would have kept these, but the fit is all screwy. The gloves fit my palm correctly and in between my fingers comfortably, but the finger length is way too long. Unless you have ET probing fingers, these are poorly designed gloves. These were a return for me.

Real Good Buy
Excellent design and quality; I bought the "M" size and the fit at the tip of the fingers is a bit too long. Other brands fit better. The gel at the palm of the hands provides good comfort, however I feel that gel beneath the knuckles would provide better comfort.

Seems to be just what I was looking for.
These are replacing a simple leather pair of gloves that I have used for 20 years and these seem like they will be just as good. Size seems correct except the fingers are just a tad long but I am sure they will mold to my hands through use as the others did.

Great deal for a $30 pair of gloves
I bought these gloves because I'm currently on a tight budget, but still wanted a quality leather for protection. These gloves did not disappoint. The classic leather design means they will go with pretty much any style of bike your want to ride.
The weekend I first wore these, it was 100+ degrees both days, and I had no trouble with sweating like I thought I would. At some points in the weekend, my hands were hot and I wished I had bought perforated gloves, but even a better ventilated pair of gloves would have had their share of discomfort in that type of summer weather.
The glove fit exactly as advertised, although if your hands do get sweaty, you may need to tug on them a bit because they are snug.
The only dislike I have for this pair of gloves is the strap that secures them. The leather bad is too skinny and the design wraps around half of the glove, which means the strap may end up on the wrong side after you take them off. Every time I stopped and took the gloves off, I ended up fidgeting with the straps before putting the gloves back on.
Overall, a great value for $30.
