These gloves are fantastic and not just for cycling although I can see why they are sold as this due to the lovely padding they have across the part of the glove that lies on top of the palm which creates a lovely cushioning effect on the handle bars.
This cushioning also makes these fabulous for fishing, which is why I bought them. The cushion are is wide and thick and doesn't diminish with wear and even after washing this cushioning remains.
The wrist area has a handy velcro strip so they can be sealed to fit the hand exactly and this means they can't slip off either which is brilliant for any activity where you need your fingers uncovered. My husband aabsolutely loves these and surprisingly enough they keep the hands very cosy which is perfect for using a phone, eating, fastening flies on the fishing line etc.
The medium is the perfect size for the average man and I would say if you are female then go for the small as you want a snug fit and won't be disappointed buying these.
