With Direct Vent gel padding and 360 degrees of ventilation — even in the padding — Pearl Izumi's P.R.O. Gel Vent Full-Finger Gloves mean total digit protection doesn't come at the cost of stifling layers between you and the cooling air. A grippy, durable synthetic palm also reduces interference in the hand/bar interface, and conductive finger tips mean mid-ride fiddling with touchscreen devices isn't precluded. The gloves are finished with a soft surface on the thumb, so the occasional nose wiping operation abrasion free.

I like them. Good fit and feel. I like the padding in the palm and they’ve worked well for me.

After maybe 4 rides the mesh holding the plastic foam/gel on the palm has broken and the bright yellow material is coming out.
Other than that hey are a strange combination of warm-ish and super vented (thin mesh on the top pf the hand). Wearing them in the low 40 easily. Not great looking.
