May have gotten a bad production run?
Bought these a year ago and either I got a bad production run or I must ride harder/more than everyone else here? I can't hardly believe the second one to be true though :).
The fit is fine and I am aware poor fitting gloves on the large side will lead to them coming apart. Stitching in the palm kevlar came apart within 5 rides. On one it is the inside seam, the other the outer seam. The material around the knuckle guard is starting to go on both gloves on the pinky side. it is tearing right where the vent perforation/holes are.
That being said I do want like these gloves...a lot...just wish they were more sturdy. Ventilation is excellent on 90-100 degree days with humidity and the thumb terry as others have mentioned is just the best! I have used Fox Digits for years and loved them so I was surprised when these came apart.
Plus also as they were on sale. It would have been more hassle to return them than the $15 I paid.

What's the palm side look like? How about construction around the finger tips?
All you gotta do is search "fox unabomber glove" in google images and there are tons of pics with the palms and fingertips to check out.
Nice sturdy gloves. Good protection and feel on the bars. Carbon knuckle cover isn't too bulky and is very functional. Like others have said, go up a size.
I usually take an XL. Dead on fit. Long fingers fit perfect. Like the carbon outer knuckle. Makes me look tougher than I am.
Didn't work for me.
These tried to give me blisters after only riding for an hour or so. The Fox digit glove is way better...just doesn't have the knuckle protection I wanted.
Comfortable and Great Protection
I decided after a crash marred my hand that I need some better protection from my gloves. A friend of mine recently bought these for a trip to Fruita and recommended them, saying they weren't as hot as you might think. I'm glad I took his advice.
First, fit: I'm usually on the border of L and XL in gloves, and after reading these run a tiny bit small I went with XL. First ride they were just a smidgen too big, but a single wash shrunk them to just the right size. I agree that you'll probably want to size up if you're on the fence at all.
While these may be billed as FR or All Mountain gloves, I use them for XC just fine, even for racing. They breath astoundingly well for how thick they are, and they're really comfortable with minimal padding and good finger grip. The fingers have just the right amount of pre-bend and they are comfy on the bike for hours at a time in heat and even humidity. The terry patch is also great for wiping your nose or sweat off your brow or gunk off your glasses. Those little touches are always nice.
As far as crash protection, they're great. The faux-carbon plastic plates are in just the right spots and do wonders against not only the ground but rocks and tree trunks (I had wide bars and don't always squeeze quite right into tight spaces). I really don't feel as comfortable riding with my lightweight gloves anymore knowing that they won't protect me as well.
The only downside is they didn't have the black in my size so I got the white, which immediately turned a splotchy light brown. Of course, if I were worried about keeping my white things white, I would go ride on the road and start measuring my power output very carefully.
Very comfortable. I love the Terry patch on the thumb for sweat.
Fox Unabomber Glove
Bought 2 pairs 1 in blk and 1 in white. They are good quality for the price. Love the soft snot whippers on the thumbs. I have washed them and seem to make it through the washer fine. The stiching looks fine for now a few sticking out but no blow outs as of yet. Looks like they will last the summer.
First off, I measured like the chart said and I am a medium, I had tried on fox gloves before and mediums were hard to get on and off, so I got a large and am glad I did. The larges go on easier and fit better, only complaint are the pinkies are a bit long. These glove are well vented and I love the terry nose/ eye wipe on the back of the thumb. The knuckle protection does not get in the way or make them feel wierd and looks like it will offer some protection. I got mine on sale so they are well worth what I paid. Buy some of these.
love the glove but was to small ,returning for xl glove .customer service great!
What I was looking for
Another great glove from Fox!
These fit very well, but do run a little small. I bought white so they would not be hot and these can be worn on the hottest days they vent very well.
Very confortable, I can't even tell that the knuckles have rigid carbon on them.
Comfy & Great
Really great fitting gloves. I got tired of the trees "kissing" my hands while hauling a*s through the singletracks. I haven't bumped with these on yet, but they feel like they could take what the trees dish out. I haven't worn these in the summer yet, but I personally don't care even if they do have a tendency to get hot. I am a massage therapist & my hands are top priority.

In regards to the unabomber gloves, is the large a real large or do they run smaller ?
If you're on the fence for a large and XL, I was in the same situation and got an XL and it fit perfect after the first wash. They run just a tiny bit small.

As far as fit is concerned, is a large a large or is it smaller ?
It's very slightly smaller, if you're on the fence about L and XL, I'd go for XL. (I was in that situation, went for XL and it fit great)

Best Glove ever.
Had this pair of gloves for little over 2 years. I ride every Sunday. Seems are now starting to pop all over and the ends of the fingers are almost worn out. These gloves have been awesome, love them, they have saved my hands countless times. Best of all, the fit. For me the large was a perfect fit and same as the large Fox Dirtpaw glove I had before.
Great Lightweight Gloves
These are great fitting gloves that offer good protection. They are lighter than my previous TLD gloves, but fit a litter better. They are definitely a summer weight glove and one of the best in that category
My second pair
I like the fit and durability of these gloves, the knuckle protection is a little extra insurance when riding tight trees.
Light Glove with Tough Protection
I use these gloves for everything from gnarly downhill to riding my bike to work. They have good breathability so your hands won't turn into sweaty raisins at the end of a ride, and they're pretty burly in case you bif it at mach 1 on some singletrack. They get four stars cause the Kevlar on the outer palm started to come detached. Nothing a little thread and needle won't fix though. One more thing, I have long thumbs. The web between the thumb and forefinger on these gloves is just like many others, too short in my opinion. I tend to blow holes there first, but it hasn't happened yet on these.
