I had the old GPX 2.0 gloves which were in a similar price bracket as the new GPX gloves. They were great quality, especially for the price. My first impression of these GPX gloves is that the quality went backwards a bit. They feel lighter and thinner than the old ones. Fit also seems a bit smaller even though I ordered the same large size as my old ones. They do feel great right out of the box but I'm a bit skeptical how well they will hold up long term. All in all, still a nice pair of gloves with decent protection for the price but I wish the leather were a bit thicker (especially for track use).
