Klim Adventure Gloves
Great glove until you fall
These were my go to warm weather gloves. I have a lot of Klim gear, mostly for snowmobile riding, and assumed anything from Klim was a great product. These gloves breath well and are great warm weather gloves.
Put the bike down last week and needless to say these gloves were very disappointing in their crash performance. Better than not wearing gloves at all, but.. The palm heal pad literally tore from the body of the glove exposing my bare hand to the pavement, yeah that hurt....A LOT.
The nylon top of the glove disintegrated upon impact again exposing my bare hand to the pavement, yeah that hurt A LOT too.
I knew I wasn't buying the most protective glove on the market, but come on Klim, I truly expected more from your product given the quality of your other products.

I like the glove but....
The overall glove is a really nice product. I believe that it would protect well in a fall but I bought this glove for summer riding and it just does not breath. Too warm for me plus I did not like how the little finger is shaped. It's slightly curved and did not fit my hand well, felt uncomfortable. Also, the glove fit my hand well but not the finger areas, just a tad too tight. I really wanted to like this glove as I love the looks and protection but it just did not do it for me. Did not send it back as I road with it for a number of days trying to break it in. Will probably give it away to a fellow rider.

Not shaped like a human hand!
I bought these gloves and tore the tags off immediately, DONT BE LIKE ME!! Yes, adventure gloves are a unicorn, and these have the right materials, and #kline right? But the fit is so so bad, literally the worst shaped gloves i've put on, from any brand, for dirt or street. Oven mitts would be better.
-The fingers are super narrow, like pencil thin.
-In contrast the palms and wrist openings are too wide. I have bigger than average palms and wrists and I still have them as cinched down as they can get with lots of velcro tab flapping around.
-You could fit 6 regular size thumbs into the thumb hole, its literally just triangle shaped. Enjoy being human with an opposable thumb? Get these gloves and see what its like to not have a useful thumb! haha
-The velcro/closure tab, ya know the one thats too long? well its also on the top side of the glove, which is unlike 99% of gloves and is just a small annoyance that reminds me every time i take them off- fumbling for the nonexistent tab underneath the glove- they're poorly designed.
-I am absolutely positive these are selling because of the name brand and the color of the palms (even the reviews saying they don't fit right are like "but i'd buy another pair")...Don't be a KLINE BOT like i was, find something else, literally ANY other glove will fit your hand better.
ps i usually write good reviews of things...

Just got these gloves. I normally take an XL or 2XL glove depending on the brand. These feel a tad bit snug I thought for a 2XL size but Revzilla rep said they would stretch. I like the features of the glove. We'll see how they do.

Nice gloves and worth the price
I really like these gloves. Some reviews said they run small but I found the opposite to be true. I have large hands so went with the XL. They were a bit too big at first but after 1000 miles of street and 500 miles of woods riding, they've molded to my hands really well. I'm assuming the sweat helped shrink them. The leather quality is top notch and the protection pads are well placed. I've had issues with other cheaper gloves wearing the skin on my knuckles but no rubbing problems with these gloves. The only issue I had was with the right index finger for the first couple days. It's slightly twisted and seemed to make my finger go numb. Now they're broken in, it's not an issue. I cringed at the price, not that they're the most expensive out there, but am happy I bought these over a cheaper pair. I was planning on just using them for ADV (GS800)riding but like them so much, I'm using them for the woods riding (WR426) as well. I'd buy these gloves again and would be suprised if anyone was disappointed with the quality.

These gloves are spectacular, quality is outstanding. The sizing could not be more wrong. I bought a pair of 2XL, I'm a mechanic and have larger than average size hands but not George Foreman ham hocks!!! The 2XL should be sized as a medium/large. I toughed it out in the hopes that they would stretch to no avail. I love the gloves and will be buying a bigger size in the spring for next years season.

Cushioned but perfect feel on controls. No binding but still has protection. Not for cold weather but I have used them so far between 45 and 85 F and they offer comfort in these ranges maybe beyond but I would not rate them as a cold weather glove. I have not used them in a rain storm yet so cannot say how they would do in the wet weather.
I like the tan for the visibility doesn't scream but shows up well when signaling.
I ordered XL which is my normal size and fits perfect..Well designed for easy on and off.
Best set of MC gloves I have ever had.
Revzilla is great. Get a 10 for service, product reviews and returning if size is wrong etc.
