Excellent, but how durable?,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Pearl Izumi Men's Thermal Lite Glove (Sports Apparel)
These gloves are great, especially for the price. Here's what I like:
- Fit matches the sizing;
- They are thin and fit snugly, so there's still good feel, and not bunching up;
- They are nearly wind-proof, even at 30 mph, so my hands stay warm;
- They have some thin, rubberized grips on the thumb, index, and middle fingers.
I needed some gloves for cool-weather road-biking and these fit my needs. There is ZERO padding in these gloves, so don't expect pads. I didn't want padding, just protection from cold, and that's what I got.
They are thin and do not look like they would withstand much abuse, so I'm waiting to put them on until I'm on the bike, ready to go, and taking them off as soon as I'm done. So far, so good.
UPDATE: After several months of use, they are still good, but one of the cuffs is unraveling. If you look at the zoomed view, you'll see the cuff trim. Well, mine had loose threads. I tried to pull one off, which was my mistake. It began the unraveling process, and now, half the cuff trim is hanging loose.
Additionally, the gloves are showing some wear all over. They still feel really good, but I don't think they will last very long, maybe a year?

Hi! I've also had them for a year and mine are still doing great with no unraveling. Thought I'd share to show a different experience!
