Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I'd like to second the other reviews comment about the finger length. They fit perfect when wrapped around a bar a tiny bit short when fingers are fully extended. In my opinion this is perfect. One think I didn't see in the description is that there is a glove liner built into the mitt. This has some advantages and some drawbacks. On the up side the way the glove/mitten is constructed keeps the mitten section under control. It won't flop around or get caught in road bike shifters. On the down side using your own liners is very difficult and you can't turn the glove inside out to dry. Overall great product.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've gone through several sets of these tires commuting / quick road rides / gravel / etc. Average about 5k miles before I replace them. Mount easily on Stan's Grail rims (hands only). Initial seat is easy with track pump. Sometimes re-mounting after several thousand miles has taken a compressor. I have used Hutchinson, Stan's and Orange Seal. All work but I like the Orange Seal the best. I have fixed larger cuts with a traditional vulcanizing tube patch (clean with rubbing alcohol). I've gotten the loose threads around the rim. It looks like a reinforcing fabric. I snip the threads and keep rolling, no issues. I'm 180-185# and run around 60psi.
