Use the Klim site for sizing
I used the Klim site for sizing as the instructions are just a little different than RZ. They seemed to fit good from the start but I did get a little of the 'pricking' at the knuckle that others have mentioned. This only went on for a couple days. I really like the feel of the gloves, the quality of product, the flow of air and the overall comfort is superb.

Great warm weather gloves
Had a pair of Alpinestars but didnt really care for the fit of the fingers. Bought the Klim induction jacket and then ran across a review of the induction gloves here. Decided to check them out and I am glad I did. The feel of the leather is so much better along with the fit of the gloves. Its kind of funny in the alpinestars the pinky finger is really long. In the Klim the thumb is longer than my thumb so depending on the glove maker different parts of your hand are mis-sized! These things breat great, the webbing between the fingers is genius and the tactile feel is amazing, I know exactly what I am pushing or turning on my intercom, bike, garage door opener, etc. Overall the only drawback is the fact that the seams are all internal, I wish a high end glove maker would realize that comfort and lack of seams are more important than aesthetics. Take a cue from sparco and other high end auto racing glove makers and make a glove with all external seams.

High-Quality Construction That's Worth The Price!
This is a great glove for warm weather and a perfect complement to the Induction jacket . There is light, soft padding in the palm and none on the back of the fingers and are extremely well constructed (as you would expect for the price).

With summer-weight gloves there is a trade-off between comfort and breathability or more substantial protection found in a racing-type gloves. This is the most substantial leather glove I that is practical in the Florida heat (except on track days) and KLIM did a great job finding the perfect balance between summer usability and protection. I would rate the protection to be a (7 out of 10), the breathability to be an (8 out of 10) and the overall construction to be a (10 out of 10). Understanding these trade-offs I would highly recommend these summer-weight leather gloves to someone looking to increase their protection over gloves constructed with large amounts of mesh. Based on the quality of construction I would expect these to last for many years.

I typically wear an X-Large in most brands, but this glove fits noticeably tighter than most across the width of my palm/knuckles. Since this is a leather glove, it will break fine and end up being skin tight but comfortable. That said, if you don't want this type of snug fit, it you might consider going up one size.

Fit sizing is similar to other brands
Well-made and high quality gloves, which you expect for the price. As far as sizing goes they fit true to other gloves I've purchased - I usually buy a 2XL, ordered the same here and these fit me.

A very nice lightweight summer glove, flow tons of air so I don't think you'd want to wear these for too long in temperatures less than 70 degrees. The leather seems quite thin on the bottom, giving great feel for the controls but I'm not sure how well they'd hold up if you were sliding down the pavement. Not a lot of padding under the glove, for most of your hand it's just a layer of leather.

The inside seams issue (you can feel where the material overlaps on top of your knuckles) is there, taking away slightly from my comfort rating. Not uncomfortable, but definitely noticeable - luckily the material is still soft and flexible, any stiffer and I can see how it would make these gloves uncomfortable for your knuckles after a while.

I'd recommend these for hot summer riding, I'll be wearing these in anything above 75 degrees and they're great in the current 95 degree weather.

Great gloves!
I purchased these gloves a few weeks ago and have got plenty of miles in them already to ensure adequate break-in. I was a little anxious after reading some of the other reviews but can't say I have the "1000 tiny needles" problem other reviewers state. With that in mind they are quite comfortable but do however fit VERY small. I typically wear a large in Alpinestars gloves but had to get a XL in these ones.

There are a couple of seams in the joint for the thumb that are quite unfortunately placed although they have gotten much better after break-in. I don't feel any poking or pinching either. Airflow is quite nice especially with the mesh in the joints of the fingers and all the perforated leather.

They do seem to be quite durable and feature great feel as well as a slightly sticky grip. I'm willing to bet that's a result of the top-shelf materials they used! Putting them on under a jacket while wearing a wrist watch is a bit pesky but totally doable.

I would definitely recommend these gloves just make sure to test the fit before you give them a go!

Great glove. A bit expensive but has a ton of great features and looks cool too. If you have chunky hands I wouldn't recommend as they fit a little tight but if you have skeleton hands like me they're great. Would buy again.

Protection AND venting!
Bought these for summer commuting and dual sport riding at speed. I wanted the most vented glove possible while still providing slide protection on the street.

Size/Fit:
I'm an XL in most gloves on the US market. XL Klims were too small. I went with 2XL but they are still very snug. The wrist is especially tight to get on and the wrist closure strap makes this worse. The palm fits well but the fingers are skinny and slightly short. After a few weeks the gloves have stretched to be more comfortable but they are also showing wear at the fingertips due to the tight leather. Next time I will try the 3XL. This is all very frustrating because the Klim size chart indicates my hand size (10.5-11") should fit fine in an 2XL.

Construction:
Super complicated construction. 30 something individual panels. Excellent articulation. Excellent venting through perforated leather and mesh finger inlets.

Protection:
The main reason I chose this glove (other than venting) is that it offers a significant level of protection. There is Armortan leather on the palm and fingers, a Carbon/Poron knuckle guard, a Poron pad on the thumb and a Kevlar/Poron pad at the wrist. NOTE: The leather on the thumb is MUCH thinner than the rest of the glove but that's OK because it allows me to work a smart phone.

Comfort:
As other have noted, these gloves have a LOT of internal seams and they are noticeable. I think some of this stems from the fact that sewing ventilated materials requires thicker seams and you don't want a thick lining in a vented glove. Are they uncomfortable? Not really for me but they definitely could be more comfortable.

Summary:
A summer glove for pavement and dual sport use that provides excellent venting and protection. Fits one size small in my opinion.

Good quality but uncomfortable
Sizing. I wear an XL on scorpion gloves. I got the 2XL and fits just right. A bit tight but I am hoping that is will loosen up. As other reviewers mentioned it is a bit hard to put on but again I am hoping this will not be a problem once they are broken in.

Quality: They seem pretty solid and flow a good amount of air.

Comfort: The stitching inside the glove in weird. It feels like a set of small needles rubbing against my skin. Unfortunately, they way the gloves were packaged I had to remove the plastic that keeps them together to try them on. Otherwise I would return. Unless your hands have very very thick skin I would stay away from these gloves (which is a shame). I will try and ride in them for a while and see if the pain goes away although I doubt it.

pricey but very good quality
I bought these to go with the KLIM induction jacket. I was a little worried about sizing and what others said about the seams. I measured my hand according to the sizing chart and they fit perfect. When I first put them on I did notice what Anthony and others said about the internal seems, but seriously after less than 50 miles with them on, that went away and they are fine. These gloves are very well made, look great ( i got the white ones) and flow a lot of air. I live is south Mississippi, and these gloves in combination with the induction jacket are about as good as it gets. I love the palm material, very thin but durable and feel great. I look for these to last a long time as do I expect the jacket to do the same. They did run just very slightly small, but will break in. Go by the sizing chart, measure your hand, and you will be fine. Have just recently go turned on to KLIM when I saw some guys at TWoS with this stuff on. Real gear.

I own the Klim Element Short and I really like the gloves. It fits well and I really like the thickness the gloves have, this allows me to feel the controls a bit better without material feeling lose in my palms as I use the controls.

In comparison to those, how are these gloves in terms of thickness in the palm area? I basically want the element version but with airflow are these those gloves?
