Fox did something right when they created these gloves. They proviide terrific protection for mountain biking (SoCal, Colorado, Arizona, Utah) and they look great. The material is thin enough so that I can tie shoe laces or get those last strands of hair tucked behind my ears under my helmet. These gloves run true to size. I've had mine for a year now, and I ride about 2-3X/week for 3-4 hours of backcountry, technical trails. After numerous washings, they're still as soft and supple as the day I bought them. Love these gloves, and I'm sorry to see that Fox did not continue them.
