Fell apart after just 6 months of use
Purchased for Sport touring. Thumbs and fore finger have worn thru. Tactile pads fell off in gentle hand washing. The material also stains the skin after sweating. Expect more from Alpinestars brand.

Purchased Bilt Sprint leather gloves for 3rd of the price and they are not showing any wear at all.

PROS: Alpinestars, Leather, Tactile feel

CONS: lacking quality, Material Stains Skins, Wear Out Fast

Ok, but go leather
Bought at my local CG store. Looked good for the first month. But the mesh starts to look rough and fray with general use. I'm not happy with the looks. They are comfortable but I will be going with gauntlet leathers next.

PROS: Good air flow, Light Weight, Look Good New

CONS: Do Not Wear Well

2014 SMX-2 Sucks.
The 2011 version of this glove was great. The 2014 version SUCKS. It is more cheaply made, the leather dye bleeds onto your skin. They're a worse fit, tighter on your fingers causing circulation issues, yes, the same size as my 2011 version. Ugly and abrasive "mobile friendly" fingertips. The 2011 version didn't need these, it had LEATHER tips and they worked fine.

I returned these.

CONS: Construction, Function, Quality

Low quality for the price
I share the sentiments of others here and on other sites. Great for the first couple weeks, but mine began to wear down and fall apart after about 1-2 months. 3 months in and the area around the velcro tore when trying to put the gloves on. Finger tips are de-threading. Definitely not what I'm used to with Alpine

1 star for Alpinestar
Purchased a pair of these since I commute a fairly short distance to work everyday. My hands sweat more than the average person and since Southern California weather is always perfect, so I went with the SMX 2 Air gloves. I've had them for a couple months now and off the bat I noticed the gloves would dye the palm of my hands. Currently finding myself having to shop for new gloves cause the thumb and palm are completely worn with holes and the mesh gets raggedy. The gloves look cool and are comfortable for summer riding, but the quality isn't very good. I'm a little spectacle on purchasing Alpinestar gloves in the future.

First Impression is pretty good
Just bought a couple of days ago. Hope I don't run into the same issues as others have mentioned here. I prefer as much mesh as possible and avoid leather if I can since I'm vegetarian. Gloves seemed to have good quality and feel snug and comfortable. Made in Vietnam, which is a plus since their manufacturing is better than some other countries. We will see how they hold up. Someone here mentioned a 5 year warranty? Good to know since that should prevent any further worries. 4 stars since I haven't proven through the test of time and use yet.

Good deal
Nice gloves, great price, good construction for summer gloves with conductive finger tips. I normally take a large glove (which these are) and they're just a little snug. But they're usable.

Velcro does not work well, "touch" function is only on finger.
These are well made gloves that fit well.
But the "touch" feature is only on the finger not the thumb,
so you can't "pinch and zoom" (at least not on my pair).

Also annoying, the velcro closure is not very effective.
The designers were trying to be clever, and the flap/tab is a narrow long triangle shape which doesn't give as much velcro engagement area as a the simple / regular rectangular flap would give, and adding frustration, the flap/tab backing is a thick vinyl or rubber that has some spring to it rather than conforming to the matching patch of velcro and tries to undo its self while riding.

At $80 SRP which I paid, I'm not happy.
I see they are on close-out now for $50,
I still don't think I'd buy them at that price.
