Gloves look and feel great. I love the reflective accents, but the thumbs are too short. You only notice this when on the hoods of a road bike. Flat bar bikes it might not be an issue. The other issue is that I tend to shift using my middle finger and ring finger. There are no grippers on the ring fingers so they have the tendency to slip off when pushing pressing the shift levers. It is too bad they didn't work.
I had never worn base layers except in cold weather, but after seeing many pros wear mesh base layers in hot weather, I decided to give this a try.
I wish I had tried these a long time ago. Using one under bibshorts is much more comfortable - no more chafing from the straps, cooler in hot weather (as long as you're not wearing a tight black jersey), and warmer in cool weather.
I now own several of these and they've survived many dozens of washes with no adverse effects.
