Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've had over 20 pairs of gloves in 6 years. The problem with gloves is that you don't really know if they are right for you until you've ridden all the kinds of rides that you do—short, long, climbing, cool, sweltering hot. I really didn't like paying $69 for a pair of gloves, but I've had $29 and $49 gloves fall apart after a few rides. One after just one ride.
Fit: I wear XL gloves by other companies and these XL fit me quite nicely.
Velcro: None, and that is a good thing. I hate how velcro snags on everything, especially in the wash (yes, I fasten them). I hate how I sometimes forget to fasten them on a ride. Despite that, more than half the gloves I've owned have been harder to remove than these.
Quality: These are well made. After 10+ rides, nothing is worn out or coming apart.
Adornments: Unlike some other gloves, there are NO glued on features. Why any glove maker would put iron-on decorations on a glove is beyond me. They come off so quickly and look ratty.
Color: I like red, but most of my red gloves (and other clothing) fade to pink or orange in less than a year. Time will tell with these, but a friend has had his for 2 years and they still look good. That was the main reason I bit the bullet and got these.
