I have updated the review on Dec 16, 2015, I have improved the review.
- very comfy
- they cost the same as the giro remedy X gloves and are way better when it comes to comfort & Poc offers protection padding but Giro does not.
- the impact protection is too thin, they won’t help on a proper impact, I tested it with hitting my hand harder and harder on a stem
- The adjustment strap is twisting and keeps getting undone.
because these gloves were actually bit too big(size large) I changed to 2016 Resistance strong gloves(size medium),the palm on some of the gloves worn out, I think this is caused by the material used & the venting holes in them, so far the Index Dh has been holding up OK,but I guess over long period of time they will eventually wear too.
This is how the gloves look like inside out.

I have used the gloves my two pairs for the whole winter of 2017-2018 I managed to wear out the stitching in the long finger due to braking, but that is easy to fix.
I use these gloves in the winter, with fleece gloves and Nitrile gloves, for colder days with -5c and below I use two pairs of fleece gloves, and nitrile gloves for waterproofing, which has worked great.
I recommend doing something similar.
I get good to feel a and control over the cockpit with this setup, but with Ski gloves, I Lack control and feel.
because these gloves are one size to big, I had to get them sewn in where the gap with the elastic is, which results in no need for the Velcro strap. So the glove fits securely, and I can take it on and off easily.
this is the exact set up I use:
Park Tool Nitrile gloves Size L, I just stretch them out a little bit for better fit on top of the fleece gloves.
more durable palm than the Resistance Strong gloves due to no venting holes.
I am looking for maximum protection, for fingers & knuckles which this one does not do properly.
I will be looking at other gloves, like Mechanix for example, they got full finger protection.
