I love these gloves: they fit perfectly (I wear small), breathe very well (fine in 90F) weather and have excellent feel. I can't attest to their crashworthiness (let's hope I never have to!) but they are a really fine pair of gloves. I have owned some cheaper pairs and my only advice to others is to buy the brand name gloves and avoid the generic and lesser brands. I think if you stick with Astars, Spidi, Dainese, etc - you pay more initially but the higher quality and superior functionality makes for a better value in the long run.
