I didn't want to get gloves. I didn't think I needed them. My husband convinced me to buy them and I will finally admit... I hate riding without them. I went on a 30 miles ride the other night and forgot them and whined the whole time.
They fit comfortably, cousin my hands from being able to feel my cables under my bar wrap and keep my hands from getting sweaty.

I love the ring finger loop for easy removal. Also, I've fallen once since I purchased these and it sure was nice to not have my hands scraped all the hell and back!!

The only thing I don't like is that I purchased the small gloves, but after a bit of wear, they seem a tad loose around the wrists. I wish the velcro extended further onto the wrist area of the glove so that I could make them tighter. It's only a small annoyance, but it's the only complaint I have about them.

I'm going to take a moment to edit this review. I've owned these gloves for a few months now and I'm not as happy with them! They've stretched out a bit and don't fit as snugly as they once did. The velcro issue previously mentioned has become more of an issue...
The other day when I pulled them off, some of the rubberized elastic- type material actually was falling out of the gloves! Not impressed.

I used the sizing chart provided and the gloves fit great when they arrived. I have used them on two long bike rides so far and couldn't be happier. Very comfortable - I forget I'm even wearing them. Clean and hold up very well in washing machine.

This is my first pair of cycling gloves. I wear size small to medium in women's winter gloves. My motorcycle gloves are a women's medium. I got this pair in medium. They are easy to get on, but are painfully tight (around the fingers especially. Movement is restricted. I'll be exchanging for a large. I'll go ahead and review them based on having tried them on until I receive the proper size and take them for a spin. :p

Cons
-The fabric around the fingers is kinda scratchy
-The fingers are a bit long, restricting separation
-The tag inside the glove is itchy
-The easy removal tab should go on the middle finger as opposed to the ring finger

Pros
-The colors offered and reflective stitching should work well for visibilty
-The sporty/girly mix of styles
-The gel padding is soft and thick
-The ventilation holes

Love the gloves. I am using them for kayaking. The pads on the palms help greatly. Made well and fit well.

I read several reviews about the Pearl Izumi Women's Select Gel Glove, and I almost didn't purchase them. I was looking for padded cycling gloves and I waffled and decided to give them a try.

1) The padding/gel is negligible. I think cotton balls would be better.
2) Many reviews mentioned that the gloves aren't true to size, running small, so I ordered a 7.5 rather than a size 7 and they fit snugly; however, as you ride and your hands get sweaty, they tend to ride up and cut off the circulation in the fingers, but once you try to remove them they tend to be sweat glued to your hands and it takes some tugging.
3) The velcro closure works fine
4) There is a label in the palm of one glove, but I didn't have a problem (probably because my fingers are numb).
5) I've used the gloves for 10 days and they are holding up well. I haven't had any snags or unraveling.

I gave the gloves 3 stars, because they are pretty, but if you are a serious cycler, spend a little more on some really well padded gloves.

I ordered this pair to replace a pair of pearl izumi select gloves. When I received them, I was disappointed in the minimal amount of padding. Sizing was as expected and I liked the material used for the top of the hand as it seemed very light weight.
I ended up returning this pair as they had an odor and a oil stain from the shipping and/or handling. Disappointed in my experience this time, but have been happy with pearl izumi in the past. Because I needed the gloves for an upcoming ride, I ended up making my purchase at a store and went with another brand.

Gloves are true to size and well made. The grippy stuff on the palms is well done. Only disappointment of these for me is that there really isn't very much padding in them.
If you're someone that prefers gloves with a little thinner padding, these are for you! They're very comfortable, I just need more padding.

I bought these gloves because I was getting sores on my hands from riding and I thought these would be great because they have gel padding and I thought, what's better than that!!? So when they arrived my first thought was that they are VERY nice looking, but then my second thought was, WHERE THE HELL IS THE GEL PADDING??! There is barely a millimeter of gel in these gloves. I am very disappointed with these, for the price I payed, these are NOT even worth $5 let alone $24. Anyway, I am too lazy to return them so I used them while I waited for a diff. pair of gloves to come in the mail and on the 2nd day of use, the tiny tiny tiny tiny tab they put on the glove for "easy removal" broke!

These cycling gloves protect your hands and keep them warm. The open fingers allow one to use these gloves for photography or other outdoor activities in which you need your fingers. The only problem is that it is hard to get the gloves off.

If I'd followed the fit guide they would have been a mess. Good thing I've lived with my petite self for so long I knew the larger size wouldn't work for me because I've got short hands. The smaller size is a bit snug, but not too tight. The length of palm from bottom of fingers to wrist is too long for me. They will be too long for any true petite leading to extra bunching in palm and thumb crease area. If you've got "normal" length fingers/hands they'll probably be fine.

The seam on the palm between the forefinger and thumb is fine on the left hand, but stiff, sharp and uncomfortable on the right hand. The padding doesn't seem like much, and there is still discomfort while riding, but post ride there is significantly less lingering discomfort than wearing none. The padding is in a great place to protect the meaty part of the lower palm. It seemed the middle of the palm didn't have much.

There are two very large tags in one glove, but I make sure they are folded up to the upper part of the hand vs. the palm and they haven't bothered me. The grey color is nice and the white parts help for hand signal visibility. They were the best out of the 10 I tried on in a store, but there's room for improvement.

Still surprised that companies don't make goods in petite and tall versions of things. All the rest of the clothing fashion community can manage it, why not cycling?

Overall they're pretty good. If they were destroyed I'd get a pair again until I figure out that magical illusive well-fitting, perfectly padded pair.
