Good Glove, but Could Use More

These are very good thin-palm XC gloves. They breath well, they're grippy, and they still protect your hand in a crash. I bought three or four pair on sale for $15 and they're well worth that. Full price they're a little overpriced though.
I bought the white because though white MTB gloves are silly, I have colored ESI grips and I didn't want my gloves to stain the grips. So far so good, my pink and red grips have no trace on them. The white actually stays reasonably white too with semi-regular washing.
They last a good long time, probably a full season of riding or race. The velcro strap separated for me (velcro came off the rubber); I was disappointed to learn that it's not stitched at all, just glued. Two minutes with a hot glue gun totally fixed it though.
My biggest gripe is no soft patch on the thumb for nose wiping.
They fit the same as all the other Fox gloves I have; I wear XL in fox and these are true to that size. It's L for a lot of other brands though, so you might want to size up a little bit.
