Klim Adventure Glove
Love these gloves for dual sport riding
Very happy with these gloves. I'll get 3 season use out of them here in the Northeast. They flow a good amount of air but will be fine on those chilly mornings (45-55 degrees). Not sure yet about durability but look like they will hold up well. As others have reviewed...these are sized very small. I border on a med-large size (American cut) and had to return my large for XL. I never wear anything XL. I'm 5'8, 185 lbs and don't have huge hands.

First off, I think they run a tad small. I would call a size large to be on the upper side of a size 9. However, they did break in nicely. I rode with them for several hundred miles on my snowmobile in temps down to 25 with heated grips. Built tough and plan on being able to use them for many years.

Look no further
My recent purchase of Klim's Adventure gloves left me wanting to ride, and with Colorado's winter weather you never know what you will get. Last we were was fortunate to have a few 60 degree days, and I had a chance to try out my new Klim's.
The first thing I noticed was how well the pull tabs are incorporated into the body of the gloves. They are big enough to get a grip on, but not so big as to become uncomfortable, they don't rub against your wrist's, and they allow you to pull your gloves on without putting any stress on the stitching.
The leather is extremely soft and comfortable, and the additional strip along the palm and thumb should not only help them last longer, they also eliminate the seam some gloves have on the inside of the thumb.
The nylon panel on the top/back of the hand, and the perforated leather between the fingers breath well. And while I could feel the air movement along my hand, It didn't feel like to much, which might make them a little warm in the hot summer months, but any glove in the summer can get hot.
The additional padding on the palm and across the knuckles and fingers is a nice touch, and the velcro was easy to manipulate with the gloves on.
Overall, if I had to say something bad about the Klim Adventure gloves it would be that I didn't have a pair last summer when I rode to Vermont.

Great gloves, but....
Great gloves, I quite like them. On my second pair as the first had a defect. The Stichting came loose on the palm of one of the gloves ( the revzilla team were great with the handling of the warranty process, as were Klim). Went on a three day ride which was fairly hard going and very hot. Still I didn't expect the Stichting would come loose.
Apart from the minor defect they performed really well. They did get a bit sweaty, but the going was tough and slow and hot. So I think they performed well under the conditions.
With the first pair, the one odd thing though is that I found the left hand glove a bit tighter than the right. I thought that my left hand may be slightly bigger than my right. With the second pair the right hand glove is a firmer fit. Not that it is a problem, just an observation.
Would definitely buy them again.

Not the quality gear we are accustomed from Klim
I've had nothing but praise for Klim's quality products in the past. Their technical coats and underwear are simply superb. Excellent build quality, fit, protection, features and value for money. These gloves were the exception. Two weeks, big torn in the thumb out of nothing. The leather used is very thin and poor quality. They are very poor quality. Not what you expect from a 90 buck- glove. Please don't.

Great warm weather glove
This is a durable, comfortable warm weather glove. It fits a little tight. I am usually a size Large. Ordered size Large and is too a little bit of riding to really be comfortable. Protection is good. From hitting parts on the bike, the brown parts are stained a little. Over 3000 miles on the gloves and they are getting a little cool as fall temps arrive, but great gloves, like the patch of leather on the palm to pull on the gloves, great feature.

I was looking for a glove with more protection than my motocross glove but not as bulky as my road glove, a dual sport glove. There are not too many options out there.
I like the idea of the Klim gloves.
The index finger in the first set had a noticeable and uncomfortable twist in them. Revzilla was great and exchanged them. These fit better but still had some issues. I'm looking for a fit like my Kushitani gloves but for dual sport riding. There is a difference in price though. Once I go through this set I'll look for something different.

I think these gloves are great. I have big hands. According to the size chart I am a L/XL. The xl were small on me. I ordered a 2xl in exchange. Hope those fit. For an american company, they got the sizing wrong. I can palm a basketball, and have large hands with slender fingers. These gloves will fit great once I get a larger size.
