These gloves are my favorite gloves ever!! The only problem is that I tend to blow holes in them rather quickly. I only ride two horses a day and still can't keep a pair in one piece for much longer than 3 months. HOWEVER, since they are so afforadable I keep going back for more. They are thin, grippy and great in wet conditions. I hardly feel like I am wearing gloves at all. They really are great gloves for the price!

Edit/addendum to previous review...
I reviewed these gloves when I first received them, and noted that they were extremely comfortable and grippy. I wondered, however, about their durability over time. I received my answer after my second ride with the gloves on -- a hole had already appeared along the seam on the thumb of the left glove. I figured the gloves would be relatively short-lived, but not to this level. Very disappointing.

These are the best gloves! No matter the weather they are the perfect glove. I think they just get stickier when they get wet (sweat or water) and wash up beautifully in the washing machine. I have one pair I use when schooling that are two years old and still going strong. What more can you ask for? Great for summer especially.

Love the look and feel of these gloves!
These gloves have the sporty look I have been looking for! They're super close contact, and I love the fact that they don't get stiff like my old leather gloves have always done. I'm not sure how they'll stand up over time, because they're so thin-feeling. I'm relatively rough on my gloves (I wear gloves every ride -- and I ride up to five horses in a day), but at this price they won't be a pain in the you-know-what to replace. I think I'll have to draw the line at wearing them in to the show ring though.

Great Glove Great Price
I would definitely recommend these gloves. I love the sporty look and feel. I ordered the size 8 and they have just the right amount of stretch for my (larger) hands. I think they run pretty true to size. Im usually a 7.5/8 and the 8s fit pretty well with a little room. I like a close contact feel without too much bluck as I ride with curb reins and these fit the bill. They appear to be well made, but at this price if I get a few months I will be totally satisfied!

Nice gloves, but don't hold up!
I really like these gloves. I'm on my 3rd pair in about a year.. They are light weight, don't make my hands (too) hot during the hot FL summers, and they are even kind of cool looking.
But they rip really easily- especially where you hold the reins, and at the tips of the fingers.. Sure they are cheap, but by the time I've replaced this a few times, I might as well have bought a higher quality, longer lasting glove.
