Dan T.'s Bio

Typical NW guy: Play outside, use an Iphone, drink Starbucks, drive a hybrid, bike everywhere, and bitch about the rain that we all can't seem to leave.

Pros: Waterproof, Great Construction, Fit- not bad, VERY Warm, Looks great and helps with getting the ladies (alright, maybe not the last one).
Cons: Zero dexterity, Blue is more like purple (I can live with it), VERY Warm, Wrist Gaskets kind of weird and was not a good wingman when picking up on the ladies.
I'm a Northwest skier. For me, I like to have a good grip on my poles without feeling like I have oversized Mikey gloves on. Although there were lots of great featues of the Legend glove, I did not feel they were a good bargain. It was hard to take them on and off; especially with the funky wrist gasket. The gloves were super stiff and made everything, including playing with buckles, very cumbersom. I really wanted to like these. For the money, there are better gloves out there.

I've owned many pair of Reefs and have always been impressed. My last pair were the least expensive leather slide and they ended up lasting me for a solid 10 years; camping, surfing, water, mud, what ever.

This time I decided to get the J-Bay. Unlike the Fanning, these do not have a bottle opener on the bottom. I've found that the opener ends up getting crushed and deformed after walking around rocks and pebbles, rendering it useless. Good idea but I figure; if you can't figure out how to open an adult beverage without an opener, then you're probably aren't "old enough" to be drinking.

Bottom Line: These are way more comfortable, quick break in, nice leather and look better with jeans and shorts.

After fully thrashing my previous knee warmers, I finally had to break down and purchase another pair. Unfortunately these new ones are not quite the same as my old ones.

Old ones had rubber grippers inside & outside on top of thigh & lower calf area which helped to keep them in place, especially on longer rides. These new ones; although very warm & comfortable, tend to slip up or down more than I'd like.

As for Pearl Izumi sizing goes; I've found it to run more on the larger size. I'm 5'10", 165lbs and I usually buy Med in most stuff (except for Euro brands which I'm a large). In P.I., I almost always have to buy size small.
