There are great gloves. I originially bought a pair in black and as soon as they arrived got online and ordered this color. They work just fine, fit true to size. I use them for road biking and I couldn't ask for anything more. The figners work on my gps, and cell phone so I don't have to take them off to set my workout or text somone mid-ride.

I will probably keep them (2XL long fingered riding gloves on sale at STP!) but the "Silt and Lime" version photographed better than it looks in person. The white portion of the glove is more prominent than it appears against the while background in the photograph. Overall quality looks good (typical of the brand) but these are entry-level offerings - definitely not for century or rando riders.
Also: while these are fresh out of the bag they are fairly tight. More like XLs that XXLs. the weave is a lightish porous fabric, if you are looking for coldweather gloves these are not them. Shoulder season. Not in the wet. They are light, soft and flexible. The padding is minimal - basically faux leather under the 1st knuckle and slightly more under the base of the palm. This appears to be Pearl Izumi's stab at a fall fairweather glove for shorter rides. If you need more look harder.
