Dainese Rain Overgloves
Not sure what gloves these are meant to fit over, but they are too small in the palm and too long on the fingers. I wear XL race gloves and bought the XL covers based on the reviews saying they run large, I should have got 2XL, but will just suffer with these since it was not a big investment and they do seem to fit, albeit very tightly and poorly. They seem to have been designed to cover standard non-motorcycle gloves as there is insufficient volume for knuckle protectors. Also, the designer made the cuff closures way too short and you can't get them over the gauntlets. It's hard to believe that this design was ever released, it's almost like they just guessed and never even verified the fitment.
Okay, so once you manage to force them on, they do seem fine on the controls and do knock down the cold just a bit, haven't tested them in the rain, but I expect water will leak under the exposed gauntlet. Anyway, I love Dainese gear, but this is the one time I really feel like they failed, part of the design process should be actually testing the product and anticipating that owners of XL race glove should expect an XL cover to fit properly, if it doesn't then you have failed at your job, I can only hope the designer of this product reads this review and learns about how the design process is supposed to work.

Very Useful Product
I have used these gloves in heavy rain, they remain tacky and my hands stay dry. I have also used these as "wind blocks", wearing them over my leather gloves on cold mornings. Highly recommended.

I regret buying this
The fit over Scorpion SSG gloves is awful. The fit over other less protective gloves isn't much better. I have medium/large hands, and my thumb goes about 1/2 - 2/3 of the way down the thumb on the glove cover. Dexterity is gone, and the effort to hold onto the handlebars is increased. Do not bother with these, just get some waterproof gloves.

Better than wet hands
I got these because I didn't want to carry around an extra pair of gloves for the rain. They work fine to stop the water (I put some extra water repellent on them immediately), but they are a little off on the sizing. An XL is way to big (I wear an XL in most A* gloves) and the L is better, but the fingers are still a but long. They end up giving you some less than ideal feedback from the bike - I find my fingertips now drag across the clutch/brake and, while it hasn't been a problem, it's not the kind of tactile feel I want from a glove.

Great gloves, good price
These are the best over glove rain protectors I have purchased. Most I tried eventually leak through in heavy downpours, but these have kept me dry in several long rainy rides.

Nice fit, good design, water proof!
Nice gloves. Online I didn't like the design as much as some others but once they showed up, I really appreciated the minimalistic design. They fit perfectly over my XL First Gear gloves and kept the rain out through some crazy down pour.
I was interested in some other gloves from another site but the price, the design and the fast shipping from RevZilla was all worth it for me.

Keep the water out - Good Value
I wore these in the worst possible conditions at motorway speeds - torrential rain, hail, and gale force squalls on a 30 minute run and they kept the water out except for runoff down sleeves into the gauntlet (I should have closed the top more firmly). My only complaint is that they are a bit "slippery" on the levers - they have some non-slip fabric on the index finger, thumb and palm, but need more on the other fingers.

fit to size
These gloves fit over my existing armoured street gloves no problem. At first I had thought these looked WAY too big, but they're just fine.
Too bad they don't have little wrist ropes to tighten up once on.
