I bought these gloves to replace a pair of Cortech gloves that didn't even last me 1 riding season...Although the Cortech gloves had better protection, these Velocity gloves are very comfortable and great in warm weather. I have a Joe Rocket jacket and they match perfectly. I am very pleased with my purchase and would definitely recommend them to any rider who wants a nice, comfortable glove and doesn't want to spend big bucks... Safe Riding!!!!
