Rated 5 out of 5 by Jerry09 Super grippy mitts
These are one of the few mitts that have a amara leather strip on the palms, What this means is these gloves grip like glue to the bars, so you don't have to. Why other gloves don't feature this material is one of the great mysteries of apparel design, amongst a few other I've come across. Note that amara suede doesn't offer the same tackiness for some reason, yet this is very common on cycle mitts.
They don't have any substantial padding, but I prefer to pad my handlebars, so the extra padding is unnecessary. This also makes buying mitts cheaper.
The main issue with these gloves is the sizing is naff. I often choose medium and I had to return the gloves twice, resulting in using an XL size glove. These fit well. The guy above who said these mitts were rubbish because he couldn't get them off I suspect was wearing a too smaller size. They do have tabs at the finger to aid pulling them off and I've not had a problem with this.
They run cool in the summer, so no sweaty hands, which is nice. And the velcro tabs are well positioned to not compromise fit, which sometimes happens on other gloves.
Final observation is they come with a good size terry towel wipe, which is essential for those of us cycling in cold climes or who have sensitive sinuses.

Without doubt the most un-comfortable gloves I own, hands go numb sooner and more often wearing these than any gloves I own (cheapest £3.65, dearest £7.50), fit is fine until I need to get them off, have to peel them off

These gloves are very comfortable both to wear and whilst riding. My hands don't get tired and don't get too hot and sweaty.
