Tour Master Summer Elite 2 Gloves
Good price, poor quality. Chinese syndrome.
I liked the gloves for the first few rides, then noticed a opening forming between the thumb and wrist of the right (throttle) glove where the stitching has apparently failed. the opening is getting larger and larger.

Highly do NOT recommend
I have owned several excellent products from Tour Master over the years. Their Summer Elite gloves are a poorly constructed, ill-fitting, uncomfortable disappointment. So much so that I will shy away from Tour Master products in the future.

Way to small. go up two sizes. Plus if you like black hands this is the glove for you and that's in perfect conditions. Started after riding 5 minutes , I hope it stops. See how long it takes.

Many miles and they still hold up.
I bought these gloves before going on a cross country road trip over 5k miles and camping just about every night for 18 days and these gloves are still what I wear everyday commuting to work. They're sun faded on the top a bit, but no signs of holes, and very little visible wear.
They are really great feeling gloves and didn't take long to wear in. There are only two things that I will mention that may or may not matter to you. 1.) When I first bought them and got stuck in a rain storm from NYC to D.C. when I took them off my hands were dyed black. Came off with some soap and warm water, but just something to know. 2.) When riding on the interstate for long distances, the sleeve of my jacket would get blown back and the skin between the gloves and my jacket got sunburnt. Tied some bandanas after I noticed it, and it was smooth riding from there.
I knocked it down a point on comfort and features, since there was less padding on the palm than I was use to with the fall/spring joe rocket gloves I have, but it took 1 ride to not notice and feel comfortable.
These are my first pair of summer gloves, so I'm by no means an authority on the matter, but I definitely feel I got my moneys worth, and think they'll make it another season of riding after I have to put them away for the fall.

Overall a very nice glove.
Nice looking quality gloves for fair weather riding. Good air flow. Size seems to run a little small. I had to step up a size.

Nice but Snug
These gloves seem well built with adequate airflow. However, the wrist opening when putting on the gloves are very tight. Once on it seems fine. Might consider getting a size larger than normal.

Decent but not outstanding for the price
Wanted a summer glove with ventilation for hot (80-100+F) California days.
The Summer Elite 2 look nice but fit me a little tight across the palm as compared to other brands. Finger length is good. The only area of disappointment is that the gloves are very thin and the stitching does not seem very robust so I wonder how well they will protect in a fall.
