Alright, for all those that have inquired about the sizing, here's my experience. I purchased both styles in XL, and I do not have huge hands... Depending on the glove manufacturer and their "sizing" standard; I'm between a L and XL.
The material on the backs (top of hand) is very stretchy and like that of athletic leggings, but not as slick/sheen as Lycra on cycling bibs/shorts. It gives a lot, but the leather material on the palms doesn't give at all. There is a slight bit of padding on the palms and I usually don't like padded palms but the fingerless didn't give me any problems after a 5 hour ride yesterday. I do like that the fingerless have a hook & loop latch to retain them and prevent over-stretching the entry material.
The full fingered version have a stretched-lycra cuff that goes pretty high up the wrist. Might be okay for late Fall/early Spring rides, but too much for Summer (at least here in the humidity of the southeast US). I'd hoped the full finger would be a good MTB glove but really don't like that long cuff. I might take them to a tailor/seamstress to see about having it cut off and shortened.
The sizing of XL was a good choice for me. They aren't super-tight, but don't "float" on my hands either. A Large would have been too small to even fit on my hands, even with the stretchy material on top.
Cateye's XL is about the same size as my Oakley Factory Pilot gloves in a Large, and the same for my Dakine MTB gloves in a Large.
The reflective surfaces are the Cateye logo and a band of reflective material on the cuff of the full fingered.

Great review! All the info I was seeking.
Just how reflective are these? Does the whole back reflect, or just a strip?
These are worthless without size information..
Sorry to ask a question at the last minute. I sweat a lot. Is there any sort of absorbent material on the glove designed for wiping sweat off a brow? I didn't read anything in the description. Thanks.
I bought these from Amazon a month or so ago in size large. They fit like every other large cycling glove I've tried. Definitely good for the $, wish they didn't say cateye though.
size ???

This is the response I received from CatEye:
Unfortunately we do not have a current sizing chart for our gloves.  However, we find that size-wise the gloves are consistent with other manufacturers, so going off your standard glove size should yield a proper fit. Best regards, CatEye America

Hi! I wish that was the case, but the gloves are super small. I always bought gloves size M, from multiple manufacturers. So based on your reply I ordered the gloves size M as well. But I can't use them. I can barely pull them on, and after I succeed - they are way too tight. Is there anything that can be done?
Any guidance on choosing the right size?

Thanks, but the problem is that other manufacturers are all over the map. I have gloves in Medium, Large, and Extra Large. Maybe I'll take my chances with Large and fingerless - more wiggle room.
Can someone provide sizing? I didn't see a chart listed on their website for these gloves either.
