These are now my first choice gloves, and I have lots of gloves. They look great - I love the asymmetric design and colour scheme. The padding seems over-the-top at first but the cutouts help the palms to wrap around your bars and the padding cushions road buzz without road feel being too muffled. (If you dislike padding of any sort, stay away though - these are not for you.) I ordered my usual size L which came up a bit snug but I expect XL would be too loose. The pull tabs are necessary, and sturdier than some other companies', but you still need to remove the gloves with care or you risk breaking stitches. In colder weather you may want more protection than is offered by the lycra backs. The advertising copy given in the description is spot-on and at $20-25 these are good value.
