Comments about Alpinestars Alloy Motorcycle Gloves:
I'm not one to normally wrie a review but these gloves rock! I'm buying another pair before mine give up. Three seasons and 7,500 miles so far, probably will make it through 2011 season but want the back ups. Good down to cooler (above 40)short rides.I bought a couple of cheaper (~$50)gloves before these and ended up returning them due to quality issues. Not one issue with the Alloy glove other than they never seem to go on sale!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Excellent all-around gloves
from the moon
Excellent gloves, I ordered these for summer riding and they fit perfectly snug. The vents allow for great ventilation, keeping your fingers cool as well as the top of your hand. The ventilation isn't so drastic you can't wear them in cooler weather either, I've been wearing them every ride even up to now (late november). The deerskin is soft but durable and the outside seams make it real easy to grip even small things like zippers and keys in the pocket.
Super Plush, but Not Too Durable
from Campbell, CA
Initially these were the softest most form fitting gloves I ever tried on. Very nice feel on the palm and the thin deerskin allows you to operate zippers and such very easily.I got these gloves last spring and they're pretty much trashed after two summers and one winter of full time commuting and adventuring in California. Still useable, but a hole got ripped where I would grab the glove under the wrist to pull the glove on, but only on the right glove, I guess my right hand is slightly larger. They're also fading and becoming worn so they're not so soft anymore.My plan is to get a new pair and use them for summers and get a synthetic glove for winters.
gloves are OK
from Virginia Beach, VA
these gloves run a little small. The size chart indicated I would need a Large and they are pretty snug. I can wear and hopefully they will stretch a little. The thumbs are kind of long - some extra material at the end even after I pull it down as far as I can. The snaps are a great escape from the snags of velcro but the right and left glove snaps appear to be in slightly different spots. I can easily button the second snap on the left but on the right I really struggle to get it, the first button leaves a big gap in the closure. the seams are on the outside of the glove but they are really big. I would like to see them trimmed down a little neater. All in all a good glove for warm weather riding, they seem durable and well made. I have only used them on a quick short ride to the store so far.
