This is my second pair of Fox Reflex gloves. I bought a previous model a few years back. I still use them as my everyday commuting gloves. They are holding strong with what I would consider normal wear and tear. I am really impressed with this new model. The gel pads are more strategically placed a shaped for greater comfort. The styling has been updated and improved as well. The faux leather is awesome. It is great at moisture management, wears well, is easily cleaned, and stays flexible. After using and abusing my first pair and now trying the new version, I can't imagine getting a better deal than these gloves.They are a great value.
