Pros: Light, thin, breathable, and they look good

Cons: None that I can think of

Recommendation: I use these gloves for everything. The thin palm lets you still feel the grips and brakes. Love these gloves. Would highly recommend these to anyone.

Pros: Light, inexpensive, nice leather palm, comfortable

Cons: No padding, not specifically made for MTB

Recommendation: I always have a pair of these that I use for working on my car. One day I decided to try them out for a quick ride and I really liked them. I have never been a fan of the typical heavily padded MTB gloves. These are not padded at all so they are very comfortable. I like the thin leather because it gives me a good feel of my grips, shifters, and brake levers.

These also offer a bit of protection from the cold when it is chilly out compared to fingerless gloves.

Pros: - soft
- snug fit

Cons: - thin
- no padding
- offer little protection

Recommendation: These gloves will do in a pinch as I have thrown them to buddies who want to go for a ride and I have used them when "between" gloves. they will prevent blisters and offer an average grip. They wear thru very fast and are known for seams busting.
