Purchase: I got these gloves off of Dover for $22.90.
Likes: I really love these gloves. My hands sweat a lot when I ride and I lose grip on the reins, which I can't afford to do on cross country. The SSGs wick away sweat really well and keep my hands cool. My hands also blister easily and I find that since I have started riding in these my hands don't blister or chap at all! The color lasts, and the fingers and palm take a lot of wear and still hold up.
Dislikes: I have two things I dislike about them. The velcro that goes across the wrist is starting to fall off, the stitching is getting really loose there. And the material on the palm sort of wears away. Its like its a regular material with another coat of something on top and that outer coat is coming off with use. But I suppose that's expected.
Quality: My main worry (I'm sure this is most riders worry about gloves) is dexterity. These gloves are very well made and the top of the the glove conforms to the hand without being to tight. It allows lots of movement but it doesn't slip. The stitching between the fingers is no problem and is not uncomfortable in any way as it is not directly in between fingers but is a little higher towards the top half of your hand.
Summary: I love em. They have lasted for a good long time (around a year) seeing as I wear them practically daily for 2-3 hours at a time. They wash easily (just rub some soap and water over them and rinse) and don't get that gross smell that some gloves seem to retain. I will continue to wear them and will buy another pair when these are worn out.
