I bought these on sale for a good price, ordered Large like I do for almost all my gloves (except Castelli). They're seriously too small, can barely get them and off. There is No Way they'd be comfortable for even a 5-minute ride. Soo disappointed in Giro on this product!
I have pretty small hands but these gloves in a size small fit me perfectly. The gloves should be a little tight to begin with but will break in after a ride or so. You can find cheaper gloves but those tend to be pretty shoddy in construction and most of the time don't have gel inserts. I find these gloves to be really comfortable while providing protection. Like most cycling apparel was in a delicate bag and air dry since they can get kind of rank after a bunch of rides.
I love this glove and have had a pair for 3 years! Its time they get replaced but only because I cycle a lot in the sun and they are a bit faded and the gel is worn some. They still fit well and have held together excellently! I wash them on cold after each ride and hang them to dry. I ride over a thousand miles a year and this pair get used most of my rides but about 3 months. Im here now buying a second pair!
I've ordered from a few different places and have received the wrong gloves each time. I ordered an older version, and that is the one I wanted but each time did not receive. Both companies offered a partial refund if I kept the gloves. So now I have 2 pairs I don't want and am still looking for the ones I do want. It's a hassle to return things, and I wish these companies would make sure their descriptions were accurate.
I returned them because the Pearl Izumi Men's Select glove was much better and about the same price.
Over the years, I've owned several brands (and many pairs) of cycling gloves, including another model of Giro's. I have smaller hands than many men, so I normally wear a medium in other brands; however, from the previous Giro gloves I've owned, I needed a large size in their gloves so that's what I ordered. This pair was STILL too small. While I can get them on, it almost takes a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove them!
