I bought these gloves in blue to go with my helmet and out of the package they had a funky smell. I thought it was just the dye and would air out, but honestly these gloves make my hands smell gross. I have used alot of glove brands and have sweated in all of them and none have gotten the funk like these. They are comfortable and they fit well, but the stink remains in my hands for two days post ride. It's like pro hockey sweat funk. I have NEVER had this issue with gloves ever in 30 years of riding. The worst part is I only wear them once a week and have only worn them in winter so I can not imagine what they will be like come summer. Disappointing considering the price point.

Good features, questionable longevity
I bought these gloves about six months ago, and I absolutely loved them while they help up. They are lightweight, incredibly touchscreen friendly, and feel like a second skin. Unfortunately, after six months of use riding one horse a day, the stitching is already separating and the material is wearing thin. I am torn, because I enjoy wearing these more than my Roeckl gloves, but they just do not seem to hold up.

Disclaimer: I've only used these twice so cannot comment on their durability, but so far I absolutely love these gloves and find that they are worth the higher price tag (than say, the Noble Equestrian Perfect Fit gloves). I'm just getting into dressage from reining and totally see why gloves are necessary. I disliked my previous gloves because they were a, too big and very long in the finger which seemed to get caught on everything, and b, they were not breathable and my hands were sweaty and gross after every ride this spring/summer. I was excited when I found these, they look super sharp, and they are very breathable. They are made of a very thin material, even on the palms (hoping this material holds up), and provide great feel. They also don't have fingers that are too long. I would say that the thumb is a bit long for me but everyone's hands are shaped differently. Overall, I'm very happy with this purchase and am seriously considering going back for the black/navy pair. Fingers crossed (get it?) that they hold up more than one summer. Also, I wear an 8 and felt that these were true to size, I possibly could have sized down to a 7.5 and hoped they stretch.
