In some respects, I like these gloves. Minimal padding but comfortable. However, after about 2000 miles with them, several seams are coming undone and the fingers are fraying a bit. Now, these get washed after every ride, and it isn't like they've gotten light use. But the specialized gloves that i got about the same time, and that i've alternated between look in near new condition except for a little fading. So, I like the design, but I'll probably look to a different glove for the next set.
