Rated 5 out of 5 by SavageDiver31 5000 MILES!!
So I bought a pair of these gloves new the day I picked up my Breakout (2015)... it was late October in Florida and starting to get cooler. The gloves did great keeping my hands "reasonably" warm until I and the bike got shipped to Hawaii that December. Well after riding in stop an go traffic.... and when I say stop and go.... I'm talking, walking the bike using the clutch for 10 miles each day. Well my bike just hit 5,000 miles and the Left hand "Clutch hand" palm has a hole worn in it. If you are not in stop and go traffic like I am every day, I'm sure these gloves would last a lot more than 5,000 miles. But for me... These gloves have been amazing, comfortable and dry easy because it rains a lot over here. I'm about to order a second pair... if i get 5,000 miles out of them, well then ill be a happy camper. These are great warm wether gloves!!!!, but as I mentioned they did ok in temps near the high 40's for shorter "commute" type trips.

Yes, these gloves fit very well! I upgraded after two years with full mesh gloves, and for a small bump-up in price, these really have served well the past three months. The gloves are durable, especially the palm grip, side of thumb, and the stitched-in pads for each of the second knuckles. These are also breathable, with mostly mesh on the back and the perforations on finger tips, second knuckles, and thumb tip.
I like the pre-formed fit with curve already in place for the fingers. I also really like the Skull and Flames logo you can see on the back of each hand!
Would give five stars, though I agree with other reviewers that the selling point here is not the touch screen feature. The extra stitching on the pads of the index fingers is not really helpful for me operating my phone. The selling point for me was the "hybrid" mix of leather and mesh. Perhaps "leath-mesh" may be a new marketing term!
One suggestion would be a special small pad (no bigger than a pinhead) on the very tippity-top tip of each index finger, which the phone screen could respond to, perhaps a rubber material like a stylus found with some tablets or handheld gaming consoles. It'd be important that this small pinhead pad would not interfere with grip or comfort, and would not, if on the actual top point of the finger.
Overall, I really enjoyed the miles that I had with my full mesh gloves, and these gloves were the perfect upgrade for the price. Enjoy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by StumpyFuzzball Good summer gloves
I've had these gloves for almost a year and couldn't be happier. The touchscreen feature isn't terribly reliable, but generally works if you just need to answer a call or other easy function. Being in San Diego, these are my daily gloves most of the year.

Rated 1 out of 5 by GreenRider Blackens your palms if you ride in warm weather
I've had these for about one year now and they continue to bleed black over my palms when I ride in warm weather. Nothing I've tried will stop it. Not worth $55 as I now have to buy a new pair. Tired of having to scrub my hands raw after each ride.
