perfect for price / comfort / function

cheap. soft and lightweight. I normally get a small or medium in gloves, depending on brand. I like gloves to be tight, it annoys me when gloves are too big and bunch up in the palm area. I ordered these in small and found the fit to be perfect. they were my first gloves with finger loops, and once you use the loops, you may not want to go back. easy to get off, dont get in the way of your fingers during use. As one reviewer stated, these are not body armor. they are pretty thin, and felt great during warmer rides. The printing on the knuckle area started to wear / crack after a few months of use, but is still there 6+ months later. I found a size XS pair on clearance at a LBS and got them - they also fit well (my hand measures about 7-7.5in in circumference). They arent as flashy as some of my more expensive gloves but I like them just as much. the terry cloth thumb area wipes snot as good as any other.
