For the money, it's hard to get a summer short-fingered glove that's better. The palm padding is decent - and better than my Gore winter fingerless that cost 3 times the price. Downside is that there's no towelling or fabric on the back to wipe away sweat, and they do come up smallish so you might consider sizing up. I've had them a month and they've been hammered, standing up well so far but I doubt they will last more than a year. But for the money you could buy multiple pairs and still be happy.
