I waited for these gloves to come from backorder and glad I did, Dennis Kirk notified me immediately and I bought them. They are a firm glove for cool weather riding, I ride days that are 40-50 degree and my hands are never cold. The gloves are pre curved which really really helps long rides and excellent control from the wrist through the fingers. I have excellent thumb tip controlling even for a cool weather glove. The glove cuff is medium length and helpful to keep the wrist area covered no matter the jacket cuff fitment.. The wrap around velcro cuff closer is "course" type and grabs other things it touches, namely jacket thumb loops. The cuff is easy in and out with plenty of velcro wrap to close the cuff correctly. The knuckle protection is good and well positioned. Hands down the best cool weather gloves in my gear set.
