Just got these gloves and had a chance to use them at the track this weekend. A little tight but I am sure they will loosen up. Very comfortable and the length of the fingers is spot on for my hands. I usually have an issue with the fingers being too long on other brands. Have Taichi leathers and I am reaaly pleased with their products.

These were probably the most comfortable gloves I ever bought. As is typical for Japanese brands, they run on the small side for their size, but they are so plush and flexible that even the break-in period was pleasant. I bought them in a hurry at a track day, due to their price, comfort and appearance. The leather is so soft that manipulating the throttle and clutch requires no effort at all. I really loved these gloves. However, that soft leather doesn't handle the track surface very well. After using them for the better part of a season, I had an off in a slow-speed corner (maybe 40mph). Landed on my right palm, and the glove barely held together. It saved my skin, but if this had been a faster corner my palm would not have come out unscathed. These are not a proper race glove. They will not hold up well in a track wreck at high speeds. For lower speeds, such as city or highway riding, where you're not going to be hitting the deck at triple digits, these gloves are FANTASTIC. Just be aware that they are a one-then-done item - crash once and you'll be throwing them away. For the price, this isn't a problem, as more race-oriented gloves that can withstand multiple crashes tend to cost two or three times more.
