The much-beloved glove.
DeFeet's Reflective Electronic Touch Gloves add a hit of reflective detailing to the company's knit Duraglove platform. We're rarely comfortable making broad generalizations for the tastes and preferences of all cyclists, but it's pretty safe to say that these mid-weight knit gloves have a special place in the hearts of cyclists whose seasons extend into the fall and start up as soon as early spring brings temperatures back up into the low- or mid-40s.
The gloves have received some updates throughout the years, but the blend of insulation, breathability, virtually unimpeded manual dexterity, and silicone palm print have remained unchanged. The updates included things like a shift from wool to synthetics, touch screen-compatibility in the thumbs, middle, and forefingers, and — in the latest development — a bit of reflective detailing across the knuckles to help keep you visible to motorists and other road users during the early dusks and brisk mornings of fall and spring.

- Q & A
Odd finger length
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I haven't actually worn out biking yet. The gloves feel good , but the finger length is odd though, which I anticipated based on reviews from other sites. Based on my palm circumference, I'm between a medium and large. I ordered both. The L fit my palm a bit better, but the pinky was annoyingly long. The pinky is even a bit long on the M and the palm a bit tight, but I decided to keep the M.
Other than the pinky length, they seem good - will see how they hold up.
