Excellent gloves for small hands

Date:July 12, 2011
These are a great purchase for daily commuting, especially if you have small hands and trouble finding gloves that fit! I've been wearing these all through the spring, and while they're not very warm on cold mornings, the one bonus is that on rainy days they dry very quickly in time for the ride home! They're also very well-constructed, breathable and comfortable and the reflective taping is a nice touch! Well-worth the investment! I like cute things and these are cute! Like vampires with big teeth and hello kitties that are on things like teacups!!
Pros: Stylish, Comfortable, Breathable

Good gloves, but...

Date:June 12, 2011
These gloves are great for warmer, dry weather. They cut the wind, and the gel pads make them super comfortable for road cycling. They sort of become second skin. But:
- They do not shield against rain, so your hands will get wet and cold (I live in Vancouver, and it's always raining here). But, then again, I've tried many winter gloves for cycling and none of them have worked for me 100%. They are either too bulky, or not warm enough, or waterproof enough, etc. So, it's really up to you.
- The fingers are a little long, and I got the smallest size. However, I am a very petite person, so finding the perfect sized gloves for me has always been an issue.
Pros: Stylish, Comfortable
Cons: Poor Fit, not enough protection again the element.
