Nishiki Men's Mesh Fingerless Cycling Gloves
The gloves are sweet to have. The padding is right. Definitely good to have for spring wear. I wished I had them on the day when I crashed on my last bike trip ahaha.

Such a relief!
This product, suggested by an excellent staff, protects my hands as I must bear partial weight on my palms. Releived pain and numbness! Thanks!!

does what they should
Rode twice with them, and they perform admirably. Good construction and easy to use.

They do the job!
Casual riding still works the hands over with gear use and I found these gloves to work fine! My wife rode without gloves and got a blister.

Good product for price
I used these gloves on a 60 mile mountain bike trip just last week. They saved me. Without these gloves my hands would have been rattled to death. I feel that for the price they were good. There may be some others that are more expensive and have more padding but a great starter glove.

good, nothing spectacular
Breathable, lightweight, comfortable at first. I rode for 8 hours the first time I used the gloves. For the most part they are good, but after a while it seemed the gloves started cutting into the area between my fingers. The gloves would be worth it if I wasn't spending any more than 2-3 hours with them on.

Extremely comfortable (but small)
I actually bought these gloves to keep my hands from getting slowly baked by my laptop computer. They are extremely comfortable, well-made, cool on the backs of the hands, and convenient with their stretchy loops for easy removal. They protect my hands nicely from the laptop heat, but they also let my fingers move freely while playing games. I haven't actually tried cycling with them yet, but I have a hard time believing they wouldn't be great for their intended purpose. The only issue I had was that their sizing seems to run surprisingly small (a salesperson in-store agreed they tended to run small). After trying a large in-store, I ended up special-ordering an extra large because they squeezed my fingers too tightly. I'm 6'3" with slender hands, definitely not what I'd think of as extra-large in terms of hand size. All the same, I was satisfied only when I went up to the extra large. I'm very happy with them now.

Love the Glove!
I've used this model glove by Nishiki for several years, starting in 2010 when I bought a pair before my wife and I cycled the Erie Canal for our 40th anniversary. I've purchased additional pairs in 2011 and again in 2012. I appreciate the palm padding, which seems just in the right places for my hands. The mesh on the backs seems to help cooling my hands, but the thing I REALLY like are the pull-off "cups" on two of the fingers which help me take the gloves off, even after a day of sweaty, summer riding. This feature is hard to find on any other glove, so it's become one of the things I look for in riding gloves. My hands are larger than average, and I find the XL size just right. I ride a hybrid with upright handle bars, mostly on road with occassional off-road and trail riding.

Above average gloves
I ride about 100 miles a week. These have proven to be above average gloves at a nice price point. They are much more comfortable than some of the more expensive gloves.
