Haven't been down in them, so can't comment on how they hold up. Been riding in them for a week, so can't comment on longevity. Otherwise, they're my favorite pair of street gloves, even compared to some alpinestars and Racer (the company) gloves. The leather is reasonably thick, but pliable and comfortable. The protective features are roughly equivalent to my track gloves, but without the gauntlet, and they still breathe reasonably well. Sizing is weird. I wear a large in other brands but the chart said XL for me (little over 9" palm). They feel ever so slightly big in the finger girth, but finger length is spot on while riding. They don't feel "snug" like my Racer gauntlet gloves, but they are still comfortable and don't bunch up. There are a couple loose threads sticking out on the fingers, but I burned them with a lighter to prevent fraying. They're fantastic gloves so far, and the sub-$100 price is hard to beat for what they offer.
