    I like my 661 rajis vented backside and you don't really notice them when you ride.They do wear kinda fast but I picked up 3 pairs when they were on chainlove for less then $10 each.

    Ditto on the 661 Raji. They can be had for $13 shipped on eBay too.

    I've really liked the Giro Xen's and Remedy's. The Remedy seems a little more rugged, the Xen really feels great on the ol' mits.

    Ive been running the Giro Xens for the past few months and they have been holding up very well...the sides of the fingers have a vent type material on them...and they have felt great. +1 for 'em.

    I'm a big fan of the Giro DND. Very durable, and breathe well enough. I also, don't like velcro straps on my gloves. The DND is the best option I've found w/o velcro straps. No padding is a plus, as well. I've had two pairs for 2 and 3 seasons, respectively. I've put some big falls on them at the jumps and they kept my hands from getting shaved off on a first base slide through a berm. A slide that burned through a long-sleeve jersey and shredded my belt and belt-loops off my pants. The gloves were just dirty.

    I like Fox Airline gloves, especially last year's model which does not have the extra seam in the fingernail area. I also have a pair of the 661 Raji, but I think they are too thin.

    Another vote for Giro Remedy. Feel great and breathe pretty good.

    I like Troy Lee Airs. Pretty sure they're not cheap, though.

    Another vote for the Raji's from 661. Super light and airy, with a very simple minimalistic design, yet they feel great on your hands and grip like hell. Even have a little terry cloth portion on the back of the thumb for wiping brow sweat. On top of that, they look pretty damn cool.

    I just bought another 2 pair off eBay for cheap. Great full finger glove for hot days.

    Specialized Radiator. I wear them all summer long in AZ, temps to 113 or so and you don't even know that you have them on. Replaced the first pair after a year because I crashed on them and tore a hole, 2nd pair has lasted darn near 2 years, riding 3x/week, 6+ hours/week.

    I'm new to riding in general and was curious how much of a difference gloves actually make. It is something I would never had considered until coming across this thread. I live in AZ and will be starting on easier mountain trails to start. I'm also taller @ 6'4" so if there are some brands that fit larger hands than others that would be good to know also.

    Gloves make a huge difference, and are definitely worth trying out. I'm wearing Dakine Step-ups presently. I like them, light weight, comfortable, and stylin'.

    +1 for the 661 Raji,have used them for years now and like said can pick them up really cheap,just make sure you buy the correct size as the elasticated wrist band comes unstitched if too small

    Go down to your local motorcycle store and try out a few sets.

    I have a set of 661 Raji's that I LOVE but my hands were hurting a bit so I picked up a set of Fox Reflex Gel gloves and they are great. Definitely dont breathe as well as the Raji's but are OK.

    That's what I was going to say, too. I think the price is generally comparable to others. My LBS has them in the ~$28 range. I'm waiting on a pair of XL in black (rather than red, white and blue).

    Thanks for all the info, I ended up buying a pair of the 661 Raji's and a pair of the Troy Lee Designs XC Glove. By the way I have a addiction to gloves 8 pairs now just did not have any for summer weather.

    Why is the lack of padding a plus, is it because they're hotter, or is it a matter of control?
