Giro Cycling Gloves Customer Reviews:
Quality Gloves – Great gloves. One of the things I like most about them is they still allow for pretty good dexterity. I can get my keys out of my pocket and unlock the door, etc. without taking them off. I live in western Washington and I use these gloves on my daily bike commute. Even though it can be wet here these gloves are fine on all but the rainiest days.
Another review says they run a little small, and I found that to be true. By the measurements I would be wearing a medium, but I ordered a large and they fit great.
Nice gloves – These gloves have worked out really well. They are rated for 40 degrees and up, and they hit that about right, if it’s much colder you will have numb fingers. As other raters have stated, they do run about one size small. I normally wear XL gloves so I ordered the XXL and they fit perfectly.
