the gloves came in yesterday and fit great, the sizing chart said i wear an xxl and they fit like they are siupposed to, so the sizing chart seems to be accurate.
they feel a little different than either my astars or my cortechs did because of the padding as well as the armor, but they are very comfortable just different. they are pricey but let's hope i never need the protection they are supposed to offer. i never want proof that i got my moneys worth in that area.

You'll be able to tell whether or not you got your money's worth not by crashing but by how they feel a year down the road. They will become more and more comfy! Also, the reason why they feel weird is bc the stitching is on the outside of the glove instead of the instead. This give the rider much a better feel. You're going to love them!

Your last statement was ironic. You know me little incident yesterday. Just before leaving work my boss commented on my new upper gear I had on saying how lets hope you don't need it. I said none of us buy gear to see if it works. Ironically I had my accident after leaving. Not to thread jack but agreeing with your last sentence or so.
Have a gooood one.
