    These are the best gloves I've used yet, coming off of weight lifting gloves, Mechanix, Fox Digit, 661, Dakine, and Race Face. Fox Digits were great, but these are so much better.

    1 huge pro is the low profile. It doens't have those welded TPR bits that can peel off and make it hard to slide your gloved hands into pockets.

    Another huge pro is well articulated fingers. The thumb is patterned to be in a position that's in the stretched out thumbshifter position, so much less change of blowing out holes in fingers, like I've dont on every other glove (which I turned into 3/4 finger gloves).

    Things that bothered me about other gloves were fixed on this. 661s had really poor finger articulation and a huge material/origin/care tag. Fox had mesh that tore easily. Race Face had poor finger articulation and poor seams and unsecure velcro closures. Dakines weren't very breathable and had dye that bled when you sweated and washed them. None of them had palm protection either.

    If I had to really pick on it to find some kind of con, I'd say the inside seams on the articulated 4 straight fingers can be felt if you make a fist tighter than you would around a handlebar grip. I guess I'd also complain about how loose the wrist cuff is, but hugs the bottom of my palm well enough that I don't think it'd fly off unexpectedly like my Race Face gloves would. The fingers are too bulky to use reliably hit any buttons/keys and it won't work with touchscreens that rely your finger's conductive nature.

    They are just very well detailed. Things like putting the velcro on the wrist cuff stiffens it up to allow you to pick it up and pull the glove on really fast. The fingers are great and the protection is great. The palm material is super nice. It makes the finger and back material feel rough and brittle in comparison. The back seems pretty durable and resistant and the lettering seems like it'd resist tearing and brush snagging on it, if the material is actually brittle (maybe after being baked in the sun long enough with or without sweat crusting it up).

    Overall, great set of gloves that I'd use as my only set of gloves. No need for a set for DJ, BMX, Road, XC, or DH... these seem to be ideal for it all. Stock up if you find them on sale!

    A downside is the velcro closure - it's too small of an area and after some use it won't stay closed very well. They have however lasted about 7 months of light use... although I have washed them about 5 times and the rubberized texture is starting to come off... too bad because they are a nice fit. It would be nice if they lasted more than a year.

    the only two problems are: they are far too small and the velcro is not very good.
    but overall they are good gloves.

      This were a great value and are very comfortable. The side of the fingers are meshed for added ventilation and helps minimize moisture/sweat buildup.

      The only issue is the the dimensions ran a bit small for me

              This is a pair for colder weather mtb. Very flexible and it really hugs your hands and still have a good grip on the bike. Offers good protection during crashes and also minimize hand fatigue during long trails and rough terrain.

                Purchased these gloves in the beginning of this summer for Mountain Biking. No complaints. They grip, they protect, and they are not bulky and they look awesome.

                Comments about Giro DJ Gloves '11:

                Bought these gloves about a month ago and for the price point you can't get much better. Even though these do not have as much padding as other brands they still work great and I use them on all sorts of trails...Even downhill. They also feel great on the hands and I sometimes even forget that im wearing gloves because of the great fit.

                Nice fit but my thumbs poked through in about 2 to 3 months so they could be longer or tougher at the thumbs. Recommended if you have short(er) thumbs.

                  A downside is the velcro closure - it's too small of an area and after some use it won't stay closed very well. They have however lasted about 7 months of light use... although I have washed them about 5 times and the rubberized texture is starting to come off... too bad because they are a nice fit. It would be nice if they lasted more than a year.
