My preference is for minimal or no padding, these are great. Compared to my last set of black leather gloves these are a plus, no black dye staining my hands after a long hot ride.
Have yet to ride with them in the rain so time will tell, but I would expect if there was going to be an issue I would have seen it due to sweat.
Very nice fit, no bunching in the palm.
The only complaint if you can call it that is the lack of decent pull tabs to remove them. The leather nubs under the pinky and middle finger are hardly worth the time spent designing this feature.
I'll still be ordering another set so I have backups for when these are ready for replacement.
