So I've recently purchased a pair of Takamii's Gloves, for use as a summer glove, and am very happy with them. Thought I'd do a bit of a review. I don't really know what I'm doing, so I'll just write some stuff and hopefully somebody finds it useful at some point. First off, some pictures I took: (Apologies for the iPhone camera, it doesn't do the gloves justice - they are very pretty ) http://img846.imageshack.us/img846/8862/img0685w.jpg Sitting on my desk, unworn - looking a bit flat as they are straight out of the box and not worn in at all. http://img705.imageshack.us/img705/7114/img0686ai.jpg First time putting them on, hand is loose - fair bit of precurve. http://img268.imageshack.us/img268/1329/img0687pe.jpg Bit of a close up of the leather, note the stitching is on the outside to ensure a better/more comfortable fit. I can attest to just how comfortable these gloves are - extremely. Stitching also appears to be high quality. http://img30.imageshack.us/img30/2333/img0688tn.jpg Finger holder together thingy - safety first! http://img10.imageshack.us/img10/1995/img0689xt.jpg Perforation between fingers - picture is of the right side of my 2nd from left finger on left hand - although you can't see it, the perforation is the same on the left side of my 3rd from left finger too - and the same in all the gaps between fingers - excellent air flow. http://img155.imageshack.us/img155/7443/img0690m.jpg The wrist tightener velcro thingy also pulls the top of the glove flat against your hand. Most gloves (my Alpinestar winter gloves included), are just velcro fed through a 'static' loop, these gloves not only pull the 2 sides of the glove together, but pull the outer and inner palm sections together as well. Not sure if this makes sense, but it works out giving you a MUCH snugger fit - extremely comfortable. http://img706.imageshack.us/img706/6328/img0692u.jpg Exhaust venting on the gauntlet section of the glove to assist airflow. Plus it's a cool thing to point out to people to show how high tech they are Some arbitrarily generated criteria I managed to come up with to judge the gloves on, in no particular order: Fit - 9.5/10 Absolutely amazing, at least for my hand shape - which I'd consider normal I guess. Nothing more need be said. The only reason these don't have a 10/10 in this category is because I don't have enough experience with other gloves to know if they're actually perfect or not. In my eyes they are though. Venting - 8.5/10 Excellent air flow while gripping controls - if your hands did happen to overheat on an extremely hot day, can just spread the fingers apart a bit to get what basically amounts to a flow of air all the way through the glove. Dexterity - 9/10 Again, amazing. No issues at all manipulating controls. The snug fit of the glove means it may as well be a second skin, so there is no slipping of glove against skin when manipulating things like turn signals. Levers are also extremely easy to access. Looks - 8.5/10 Personal preference really, but I think the white/black design is pretty ****ing sexy. I'd prefer less visible stitching, but that's a sacrifice I'm willing to make for comfort/dexterity's sake. Overall a very very nice looking glove. Safety - 10/10 If you check out Takamii's crash thread, you can see for yourself how well these gloves stood up to a freeway speed grind against tarmac. They inspire confidence when worn. Build Quality - 9/10 Gloves feel like they will last a very long time, not sure what else needs saying. All the stitching appears of high quality and just a generally well laid out glove. Takamii Customer Service - 10/10 Perfect. I pestered him with emails for days, and was met with quick responses every time . Overall - 9.2/10 Closing thoughts: If you need some new gloves, or even if you don't - get some.
