by Snowbreeze8fromSeams unraveled after 25 milesI have purchased quite a few Pearl Izumi products in the past and have always been pleased, but not this time. I bought these gloves b/c I wanted a higher end cycling glove for distances of 25-100 miles. I figured the PRO series would deliver.
I wore them once for a 25 mile ride and when I finished, three different seams had started to unravel. The glove also stretched quite a bit and started to bunch on my ride. The padding is VERY minimal and both of my hands fell asleep more than they ever have.
This glove might be good for someone that doesn't need a lot of cushion. The upper is very comfortable and the glove breathes really well- but I wouldn't count on it lasting more than a season. The mesh is very fragile and I'm sure it will start to rip with heavy use.

by eeyogrefromPoor StitchingThese gloves do not have the usual velco release at the wrist, but fit tightly and are pulled on and off using a designated pull site between fingers. I like the fit and style of these gloves (so a 2-star instead of a 1-star review). However, I agree with the previous reviewer's comment about the stitching. Many of the stitches around the padding started to unravel almost immediately and now (2 years later) most of the stitches around the padding are coming undone. I don't think any of the structural stitches are coming undone, only the stitches holding the pads in place. Because I like the fit and style, I am taking the time to restitch those seams, but if you don't have the skill or patience to do that, then these are probably not a good buy.
