Lots of research went into choosing these gloves way before WBW put them on sale. I ordered one size larger than I normally wear because these do not have padded palms, grip surface yes but no padding, so I wanted to slip them over my padded fingerless gloves. They do that and I wonder if I could've done it with ordering my normal size? Then again, warmth is better with a looser fit. I appreciate the thin material used as I still have some feel for the handlebars. After my Great Divide Trail ride this Fall, I will be able to speak about durability. For now I am very happy.
Use for cycling, 3-75 miles ride. They have the right amount of cushioning without feeling very bulky. The length is perfect, comes to mid thigh (I'm 5' 1 tall). The material really wicks moisture away from you. Just the right amount of compression. If you are in between sizes I recommend sizing up.
I was hoping it was a little more lightweight, to be used as a vest on cool starts that I can easily stow away once it warms up. It is probably a bit more robust than I initially thought, but I have found it great this autumn for rides where I put on the vest and never take it off. I'm a huge fan of vests, and this one is kind of in the Gabba territory in terms of weight and conditions, but it does pack down a touch better to be put in a jersey pocket if needed. Ultimately I probably did not need this vest, but at the price it was going for I could not refuse. I'm 6' and 165 lbs with a fairly small chest at 38 and the vest fits well over a LS jersey and baselayer. Snug, but not restrictive.
