Firstgear Kathmandu Gloves
Great glove for the money!
The glove is comfortable and tough. My hands are a solid medium and the glove fits well except for the thumb. The fingers are boxcut and the thumb is a little long on me. I don't have stubby fingers. Otherwise, they feel good. I am keeping them. They are a little stiff out of the package but will wear in nicely. The knuckle armor fits my hand well also.

Good cold weather gloves
Good cold weather gloves, down to about 40 degrees, any colder my hands get cold. I wear a xl glove and ordered a xl and it fit perfectly.

Good for every day use but NOT waterproof
Overall I like these gloves they are comfortable not to hot and look good. The worst part is they claim they are waterproof but they are not. Riding in the rain for any length of time and your hands are soaked. You can ring the water out of them. I don't think I would buy these again since one of the main selling points was the waterproof aspect.
I have purchased a few Firstgear products and haven't been thrilled with the quality control. For the price I expected a little better.

Nice look, weird fit...
First, the gloves look very cool and I like how they fit inside my jacket. The are fairly comfortable once you finally get them on, and, even when sometimes they seem bulky, control is very good.
Now, getting them on did not make a great impression on me since the liner does feel like it moves, and every time you put them on you have to re-adjust everything to make sure the guts are aligned and there are no pressure points inside your hand. Sort of like trying to put on two dress shirts one over the other at the same time.

Comfy & Good Price
I didn't by them from RevZilla as I was in a pinch & couldn't wait...Sorry Rev Dudes! I needed a light weight waterproof glove & these most certainly fit the bill. There is knuckle protection but as another review said, the palm will take one spill & be done. However for comfort, they are quit comfortable. I have an expensive pair of Dainese gloves for winter, although with heated grips (future purchase) I think these would be better. Even though the palm seems soft & not so tacky, they actually held pretty good on the grip. I went on a road trip around Mt. Hood, it rained (Normal) & they stayed dry. I like the neopreen cuff & it worked well being under the jacket sleeve. Overall the glove fits pretty good, has good grip feel, dry, & warm enough. I totally recommend them, especially for the price. Ride Safe.

overall a good glove
Although I haven't had them very long, they worked well on short commutes in 30 degree weather.

Not Too Bad
They have more reflective material than many winter riding gloves, which I consider very important. They are fairly comfortable, but there's not much room in the thumb... especially when using the clutch. There is no grip on the front of the glove and nothing to protect your palm area in a crash. They are fairly warm... I rode about 75 minutes highway speed in around high 30 degree F weather and my hands were a little chilly, but far from unbearable.
I got them on sale at a local dealer for about $72, so that's not too bad a price for winter gloves.

The glove is fashionable but fitment is a 3 out of 10. NOT recommended at all!!!
