I had high hopes for these as I love my summertime Pearl Izumi gloves, but I'm really disappointed with these gloves. I was on the edge between M and L on the size chart but got XL due to the other reviewer saying they ran small. The fingers of the XL are too long, but I think the wrist of the L would be too tight because the material is not stretchy. The gloves are pretty easy to put on when my hands are dry, but near impossible to get on if my hands (or the gloves) are wet. The description says they have "superior water protection", but they soak through immediately and my hands get very cold even on short rides when it's raining. The touchscreen feature works well, the fleece panel is nice, and the padding is comfortable. If it's dry weather and over 45 degrees F, these gloves are fine. Any precipitation or any colder, and they're horrible.
