Pearl Izumi Elite Gel Vent Glove

Pros: everything a glove should do

Cons: velcro causes shorts to get ripped up

These are great gloves and in fact I bought the long finger pair rather than the short. 

I hardly use them now considering that they are ripped up and the gel piece fell off after a crash. 

These gloves saved my palms from one killer road rash.

 

The only two issues I've had included the the placement of the velcro.  Traditionally the velcro would be on the top but however, placing it inside the wrist caused some of my shorts to fray.

 

The other issue (which honestly isn't an issue) is that the circle vents around the thumb area actually cause circular tans.  It looked kinda funny...  So if you are out with these gloves in the sun a lot, it may leave a progressive circular pattern/tan on that area.  Not really a problem like I said.  But overall a very good glove.

Pros: air circulation, gel pads, fit

Cons: none

Great gloves - they protect well and are very cool on even the hottest days.  Good grip as well.

Pros: gel pad

Cons: none

I just bought my second pair fo these gloves and love them.  My last pair lasted three years of road and dirt riding.  The gel pad makes these so comfy.

Pros: GEL DAMPENS OUT ROAD VIBRATIONS

Cons: PRICE

I bought these gloves in the fall of 09 after I ruined another pair of gloves in a wreck. These gloves were recommended to me by a friend when it was discovered that I had a stress fracture in my wrist. Being $40 I normally would not have even looked at them had it not been for my injury but after using them for a year now I'm glad I picked them up.

After one years worth of use I've noticed that the glove is not as snug around my hand as it use to be. I'm not sure if that's due to weight loss, a few too many times through the washing machine or simple wear and tear, but I've noticed now without the snug fit that my hands tend to get sore and wear out on longer rides.
