I am very picky when it comes to gloves. The size, the quality, heck everything matters when you're biking long distance. This glove is great considering I tear through them about 3 per season. There is a hook and loop strap around the wrist and a pull tab in by the middle finger (looks like a web) to get these off after a long ride. The gel seems good (out of the box), we will see how long it lasts. I traditionally wear a size 6 in gloves and the small fit me great. These were a tad loose compared to my last pair. but I wouldn't want to go a size smaller for fear of swelling.
