I knew going in that there would be virtually no padding to these gloves. That is part of the reason I bought them. I don't like most of the gloves I find but I don't like riding bare-handed. These are super light and fit my hands perfectly. There is no terry or fleece spot to wipe your brow - not a big deal for me.
My main problem, my only problem, is that the tops of the gloves are not as breathable as I'd like. After only 30 miles on a 70 degree day, the backs of my hands were pretty sweaty. It wasn't miserable, but uncomfortable. Other than this, the gloves are terrific.
