They had the best and most correctly placed padding of any I tried on in a store (then bought online). I thought they could use more padding on the palm, but so far they've been fine.The seam that meets at the base of the thumb to palm and forefinger on right hand is a bit thicker, or sharper, than left hand one. Maybe there are inconsistencies in the make of the product. The more I wear them, the more they conform to my hand and become even more comfortable. Take the fit guides with a grain of salt. I have petite hands and knew I'd have to order smaller than it suggests. Worked out perfectly. I've had them for months and would definitely buy another pair. I don't usually ride over 50 miles (yet) in a single go and have had no problems with padding.
