This is the first summer (2011) I have ridden my motorcycle, I got my endorsement in March (2011). Because I started ridding in March I bought very warm gloves. I replaced them with these, and I couldn't be happier. The leather and the fabric is thick where it needs to be and thin where in should be. The thin fabric and the perforated leather allows the gloves to breath very well.
I have now had the gloves for four summers (2011, 2012, 2013 & 2014 12,000 miles combined) and they are still working great. There has been almost no wear on them and none of the sewing has come undone. However, after 8,000 miles the glue holding the rubber triangle on my left pointer finger has started to let go. This is a piece on the very end of the finger and is flexed when ever you use the clutch, so I see why after 8,000 miles it is starting to have issues. From my experience, these are very high quality gloves.
I bought a large glove and it fits great. The dimensions on my gloves are: 9 1/2in. from the middle finger to the bottom of the glove. The distance across the knuckles is 4 3/4in. I cannot speak to the dimension of the other sizes.
My only complaints are that sometimes the palm fabric can bunch up under the fingers and there is no protection for my thumbs.
April 2015 update:
These gloves now have about 15,000 miles of riding on them and about 4 years of age. They are now ready to retire. Some of the seams are letting go and some of the mesh fabric is fraying. But, I think 15,000 miles and 4 years is pretty good for a $45 glove. Keep in mind this was street riding, not off road.
