Not all it seems.

No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: Expensive, Uncomfortable
This pair of gloves were meant to have gel on the palm, but there was little padding and nothing like the gel cushion I expected.
They are longer than your normal short fingerless gloves and go slightly beyond the wrist. I personally didn't like that - it was impossible to imagine that it would look like that.
Finally, the material is quite thin and offer little protecton againts winds.
If you are looking for a nice looking pair of gloves, but do not mind their functionality, then these are it. If you are looking for traditional fingerless gloves, avoid these, especially at £24.99, they were not worth it.
