I bought these with the hope of replacing my old OR Airfoil. Initially the glow in the dark palm was neat until pieces started showing up all over my room, truck, and random places during actual use outside. I figure within another month most of it will be gone... with only a month of ownership to date. The wind resistance is okay at best. Does not even remotely compare to the next-to-skin Gore Windstopper in the old Airfoil's. They are still better gloves after being five years of service and several half-baked patch attempts. I was hoping the grip pattern would also be comparable to the Airfoil. Again it was nowhere near close. The gloves are much bulkier with less dexterity.
