The Klim gloves seemed just the ticket.
The measurements said I should take an M, or maybe the very loose side of L. In fact M was super tight and L was good, but still snug around the hand.
I put about 1000 miles on them over the last four days. They've stretched out a little and otherwise broken in well.
Lots of people complain about the internal seams feeling like "a bunch of bees" or some such. I didn't find them to be anywhere near that irritating, although you'll definitely notice them. They seemed to soften up a bit after a few hundred miles.
The airflow is excellent. We spent most of four days riding around through 90-105F heat in the California Central Valley and surrounding areas near San Francisco, Marin, and Tahoe. The gloves were terrific for that.
The feel through the gloves is very good, probably in no small part as a result of there being no liner. It's not as good as the Held Steve gloves' Kangaroo palm, but it's close.
If internal seams bug you you'll hate them. If not, they're great hot weather gloves. I like them just fine.
