Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: True to size
Height: 6' 3"
Weight: 200 lbs
Size Purchased: XL

Background: I have used these for the past couple months. I have worn them on light trail rides and full days at the bikepark (whiteface/killington/mountain creek)

Pros: I have never been invited to a ball or fancy enough party that requires people to where those pretty gloves with their tuxedos, but if I ever am, I think I could where these; they are aesthetically beautifully. If you are a fan of lightweight gloves that don't impend bar feel, then these gloves could be for you. The leather palm is thin but durable and has not deteriorated in any sense after multiple rides and wash cycles.

Cons: In the words of Bon Jovi's classic album, these gloves are "Slippery When Wet". I haven't had issues with sweat, but in rainy conditions the leather becomes a bit slick.

Regardless, these are some of my favorites gloves.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Ignore the rating; I'm sure the post works great on a bike it fits. I ordered the 160mm dropper for my 2015 s-works enduro, installed it, and realized it does not fit the frame--the seat tube is not long enough to fit the 465mm length. This is also an XL frame, so it definitely won't fit normal models. Lucky for me, and anyone who uses this site, backcountry seriously has the greatest customer service I have experienced in my entire life. I say that will no hyperbole or exaggeration, they are absolutely superb. My "greahead" Grant immediately called me after I sent him an email and set everything up for me to have a new dropper immediately. Backcountry is the best!
