gloves for those who hate gloves

Most impressive and telling about the Xenon glove is how even with its superlight construction and subtle padding, it's still remarkably durable, supportive, and surprisingly easy to remove. Lesser gloves leave hands numb after long hours, don't ventilate well, or simply fall apart after the first few rides. And it strikes a fine balance between 'just enough' padding in the right places so as to not compromise your feel on the bars. Cycling gloves aren't for everyone, but that's simply because not all gloves are created equal.

* wear a Large size glove across the branding spectrum, and these are no different

Love the Xenon line-up in general. How would you compare these to L.G. Nimbus or the L.G. Mondo summer gloves?
Wish they made these for women...may give them a try anyway if you think they are better than the L.G.
