Gloves are like saddles and shoes: There is no "best," only "best-for-you." These gloves deliver for my large, bony hands--very plush. Giro sizing is random, and constantly changing--I have worn Xl and XXL in Monaco, I got these in M because reviews said they ran large. Brand new, they were skinsuit-tight, but they stretched to a comfortable, but snug, fit. I could easily size up, but I think the padding would bunch at the base. I think these are an excellent choice if you need some extra cush, and the fit suits you.
