Well, my quest to find decent/adequate summer gloves for an honest price came to and end about two weeks prior to Christmas. and i recieved them in the mail about three weeks later...did'nt recieve any confirmation e-mails, shipping, tracking etc...so kinda thought aah crap just blew my dosh on the dodgey interwebs...but hooray they arrived and i was happy! and so i've been wearing them about three weeks now and it's taken that long to break them in...riding in light rain a couple of times helped. can't give a long term review as yet, but they are made tough and i think they''ll go the distance....as a matter of fact i'm wearing them now...and i feel sexy...what are you wearing?...oooh really, what colour?...perhaps we should continue this via private msgs later?...for now i must press on with my review. (but hold that thought of me) for a 'summer' glove they are meatier than any others i've seen, but the venting works very well for me...they are a good fit for me and yet i still seem to get a lot of airflow circulating...the lining, whatever the hell fabric it is, appears to play a part in keeping the hot exterior separate from the interior....anyway, despite appearances they do work for summer. sizing i found accurate, but based only on maybe half a dozen pairs of gloves i've owned ...one review i read said the sizing ran large but i'd dispute that...and being leather you don't want a loose fit first time you put them on. the 'short gauntlet' is un-obtusive and will fit under your sleeve no probs if you have that type of jacket, or over if that's your preference. the protective features are awesome for the price, see link for details ...fingers are slightly pre-curved which is also awesome ...especially for me because i'm missing a couple of fingers so the loose digits on the gloves don't get in the way of levers so often...but it's also an awesome feature in a hardy glove because you've got more of a natural gripping shape with relaxed hands. probably the most important feature i looked for in a glove when searching/browsing/comparing etc was they stay on when you try to pull them off...when fastenned over the top of the wrist and then another velcro closure beneath the wrist on gauntlet, thers no way you can pull these things off...try as hard as you want! , you''ll only succede in making me fart a lot...i mean if you can pull them off then they sure ain't going to be on your hands when you need them to be...why bother wearing them at all. this is a propper review of the gloves worth reading> http://www.webbikeworld.com/motorcycle-gloves/velocity-gear/exhibition-pro-gloves/ this is where i bought them on-line> http://highvelocitygear.com/exhibitionpro.htm#top FAQ: qu1.)
