I am one of those riders who wear full gloves most of the year, as my hands are always cold. I bought these and a pair of Pearl Izumi's just before Thanksgiving and have been wearing the Pearls on most rides. I loved the appearance of these, but was unsure of the pad.
I headed out for a New Years morning ride and decided to try the Casetelli's out. These are the most comfortable gloves I have ever worn! Thin and lightweight these gloves were perfect for a ride in the upper 50's. I cannot wait to see how they are when it gets bit cooler in the mornings.
I would def. recommend going up one size, I wear a Medium glove in everything but bought Large and they fit PERFECTLY.
