The fact that there isn't a SINGLE review of any of their products on YouTube concerns me... Here's a re-quote for you too...

"Let me guess: custom gear at a value price? Probably the same setup as all the others. You order, it gets handed off to some 3rd party manufacturer in a 3rd world country, and a few months later you get a suit. It either fits, or there's problems and after several more months of empty promises from the "owner of the company" there's a second thread on here with "buyer beware" in the title."

And here's another quote for those listening to the people they sponsor, aka give FREE shit too...

"lol... aint no way no how I would buy a suit based on "promises". Especially when you have sellers like Riders or STG who sell stuff they ride/race in. And all the major companies have been around long enough to provide size charts that are pretty...excuse me, very damn accurate!!"

I think your a little off the mark here mate
1-I use Held Titan gloves
2-I never buy cheap shitty products(only 1 rear hrc master cylinder reservoir tube)
3-do a little more searching on products because there's a lot of great feedback on Plus gear
4-Alpinestars are made in Vietnam(does that make them inferior)
5-99% of motorcycle gloves are made in third world country's
6-Held motorcycle gloves are made in Hungary!
7-so don't be to quick to make decisions on gloves that don't spend millions telling the world how good they are!

Why is it that the word "Hungary"rings a bell in my head!Shit I remember!Held German gloves are made their!so obviously Hungary must a very good reputation for glove manufacturing!hang on!that where Plus gloves are made!ok enough with being sarcastic it's not needed!with all gloves that are manufactured in places like Vietnam,Hungary,China!has nothing to do with their quality!its their strict quality control that governs what you wear and recieved!Plus gloves are not cheap gloves at $280 here in Australia!$150 Alpinestar copies made in Pakistan are the shit!I actually nearly purchased off eBay a pair of Alpinestars GP PRO R2 gloves!the prick had a U,S address but looking at my PayPal payment the supplier was from China!a farking scammer!I looked back at his feedback and yes the gloves were copies!the prick was so shifty with bs address he got me but not for long!I had my money back in 2 hours!tell me how does eBay let these shifty pricks sell fake shit on their site?

Sorry to hear about your divorce Peter. But sometimes I guess it's better to do that than live in misery for sure. Never had the experience so you could say I'm ignorant on that subject I guess. The new bits look great tho',
