Expensive But Performing More expensive than other gloves with comparable features. But after trying and returning several pairs of less expensive gloves, I ended up feeling OK with paying a little more for the "just right" factor. Fitment was true to size. They started off feeling a little bulky, but loosened up quickly without feel like I'm swimming in extra material. They were breathable enough for the end of summer, kept my hands dry during an all-day soak, and just kept the hands plenty warm for the first sub-40 degree ride. (full disclosure: I also have heated grips) September 15, 2014
Great Gloves! I have been in several rain storms with these on and have stayed totally dry. They are very comfortable and offer great protection. June 26, 2014
Long fingers, otherwise good fit. I'm writing this review for fitment purposes only. I read all the reviews, and like most of my body, my hands are right on the borderline between L and XL. Many reviews said the the glove ran a little small and my hand measurement was a just under 10", so I went with the XL. The gloves felt great around my palm, but the fingers were way too long. In fact, there was 1/2"-1" of extra finger on every finger, which was just way too much. I know that you don't want the fingers jammed into the ends, but it was just too much extra. Now I am trying to decide whether or not to order the L, as the fingers would probably fit but the rest might be too tight. Trying to find a local store that has them, but I can't find anywhere that stocks them. As for the rest of the glove - it is really fantastic. I want to own them b/c of all the great protection and features and I really need a fall/spring glove for CO riding. Anyway, I recommend the glove if you are well within the size range, but sizing might be tricky of you are on the edge of the size envelope. March 11, 2014
Give them time, you'll like them if you do When I first got these I was very worried that the fit was not right because they are over sized a bit. If you get them a couple of thousand miles or so to set in. The liner is a little loose for my taste but that only impacts a little when putting on or taking off the gloves. Once you have them on and are on the road you can do miles with them. I have been in the rain and my hands stayed dry. February 24, 2014
Loose parts make me nervious These gloves are heavy, thick and will work well in cold weather. They are bulky, thick and heavy. I know I just said that but holding the throttle gets tedious with them on. I know I will stay warm this winter though. They are goretex and full leather. Two pluses. The glaring problem I have with these gloves are the knuckle guard. It is attached on three sides only. On the back ( facing me ) is a flap. I am sure its to allow more movement but with regards to safety, its a hazard. If I come off and am sliding palm up, this pocket can catch on anything and everything. I see it could hang on something and jerk my hand and arm around. No lose ends on clothes. I expected more thought in the safety. Titanium? Really? Makes me think of Robo Cop. July 30, 2013
Excellent Multi Season Glove Overall I am very satisfied with this glove. For temperatures from 24C (mid 70F) to 0C (32C) it have be great. I have heated grips with hand guards - below 5C my thumbs start to get a little cold after a 30 minute ride. Sizing - I was right on the Medium to Large sizing border with my right hand at 9 1/8" and the left ~8 3/4". I went with the Large based on another review. Over all the gloves fit good around the palm without feeling loose. With my hands on the grips my thumbs just comfortably the touch ends of the glove thumbs. My thumb extends ~ 2 1/2" from the side of the my palm. The glove fingers are little on the long side for my hands. My middle finger is 7 1/8" from the base of my palm. There is ~ 1/8" to 3/8" extra space at the end of the glove fingers for my hands. But maybe my fingers are just a little on short side than most with this palm side After wearing the gloves for a number of weeks, the glove palm has relaxed a little and lets my fingers reach a little further and I hardly notice it anymore. I initially debated on returning to try a medium. But given I was right on the size boarder, and the glove felt "perfect" when I initially but it on - and a previous review on the upper end of the sizing chart suggesting one size larger maybe better, I kept them. I didn't notice the finger length issue until sitting on the bike and reaching for the clutch and brake. I felt a medium would likely start to feel a little tight to put on. I the future however, I think I will try to go to a place were I could try both sizes on if I am right on the size boarder. Sometimes wonder if the medium would have been a better fit ... The gauntlet could be slightly larger for my liking. I have the KLIM Badland Pro jacket and the gauntlet velcro strap just barely reaches around. Wore them once in the rain. Notice rain would back down my jacket sleeve into the inner upper portion of the gauntlet but I was still dry - just surprised to find the side wet. I only noticed this when taking my gloves off. Maybe just the aerodynamic effects with my hand guards and jacket wicking water underneath the gauntlet. On more thing, initially the knuckle guard on my right hand would cut into my fingers slightly when reaching for the brake. After a few weeks of use and break-in it no longer cuts in and is very comfortable. June 5, 2013
Good glove for the money; fits very small however The Element glove is a good mid/all season glove, with great protection features. The box-cut fingers fit well, without having seams rubbing on your fingers while you ride. The pre-curve in the fingers is just about right to keep your hands covering the controls without a lot of effort. Gauntlet cuff is not too tight, but seems to offer good coverage when worn over a jacket. However, the fit is very small. I have large hands and normally wear a 10.5 to 11 glove, but the XL is quite snug and will require substantial break-in. April 9, 2013
Nice Option Ok, This I think is a very well made pair of gloves. I have rated the "Airflow" above as excellent in that there is none. This is not a vented glove but used for colder weather. That being said it is either not insulated or only thinly insulated. it does a good job of keeping your hands warm but it ain't no seal fur mittens, but it is not meant to be. the real good side for me on the insulation is that it is either not there or very thin so you don't get the feeling of big puffy hands that I don't like while trying to operate controls and what not. I have rated the sizing slightly small but I have big hands so take that as you will. I have a 8 and 7/8 hand circumference measurement which should put me in the medium range I got a large as I was intending to also put heated glove liners (power let) under them, I can barley do so. Even without the liners the large is a bit tight to get my hands into. largely around my thumb, or rather the first bone of my thumb (the one that connects to the hand) and to some degree the length of the hand from the fingers to the heal is a bit longer than they had designed the glove fore. (this can also misplace the protection elements) I can use them with the liners but I am hoping that the leather relaxes a bit (not sure if it will given it's treatments) I should point out that these two sizing issues getting my large thumb bone into the glove (past the wrist section) and the length of my hand are common for me and rarely do I find one that fit's me quite right. This is good for you if you normally do fit most gloves right. I imagine that there are common assumptions about the dimensions of the hand based on the circumference measurement. I am just weird. None the less all of this weird sizing issues aside I would have to have the Large on circumference issues alone so I would say they are if not a full size small then close to it. If you are any ware near the top end of the range then go up a size Why not send them back for resizing and get one size larger? That is a good question Revzilla has excellent policies on resizing. Well they can only go so far to protect me from my self. I received the gloves before the liners and decided to keep them and took off all of the packaging bits then rode with them. some time after that I figured that they where a bit small and the next week when I got my liners I decided I should have sent them back but I had already rode in them. One of these days I will learn to be thoughtful about my new toys, no, actually that isn't likely to happen. Every motorcycle rider has a kid inside that just want's to go out to play. The style is good for me (a very subjective issue not well suited to five distinct categories) in that it is some what subdued. Wile form follows function being the rule. One thing I don't like are tight gauntlets as I like them to easily go over the sleeves of the thickest jackets. well these are limited in that regard of course that can pretty clearly be seen in the pictures. I Still chose them due to the other positives. and for winter or even cold weather riding most gloves have nothing for protection. Waterproofing by Gore-Tex you pay so they will replace them forever. need I say more. Protection covers the basics that I like in a glove. the materials are top notch. As for the application of them well I will put it into categories. Back of Hand and knuckles: good over the knuckles like how they applied it but no hard armor extending very far over the back of hand, but this is still very good as I think there is some Poron XRD under there. Heal of the hand this has a padded panel with some abrasion resistant textile here but I like something slick here like a slider. this will kick the hand out in a fall and save your scaffold (I am sure I spelled that wrong) this works but just doesn't have that slick nature to it. Pinky reinforcement: I like to see a lot of protection and layers warped around the bottom of the hand and way up on the pinky as it is so likely to get ripped back in a fall with any momentum in it. and on a pinky you can afford to have a bit of loss of dexterity. Wrist protection. it is nice to see something well positioned to catch the impact of the protruding wrist bones, this is of course a little difficult to accomplish without hampering movement particularly with a tight fitting gauntlet. This is done OK with some more padded and abrasion resistant pannles but not what I would call perfect. Drag and Catch: I am always considering all of the things that will get caught or be sensitive to drag on any garment. This is not the only reason I don't where jackets with fringe on them but you can count it as one. These are pretty good, better than most. the only part I could come up with is the knuckle protection section that floats in the rear across the back of the hand. though I don't think that this is a major or even significant concern and in particular as compared to the gloves competitors. in short if you want a glove that is a cool if not colder weather glove there are not a lot that offer much protection of any kind this has a fairly good protective design with top notch materials, the styling pleases me and they have light colored palms to boot (I always prefer the lighter colored palms, it's just a thing with me) These should seriously be considered. As for price well. I want everything to be cheaper. but I don't feel ripped off compared to the competition however it is very close to if not just beyond the amount I am willing to pay for gloves that are anything other than absolutely perfect.

Doug B asked: I'm thinking about buying these to use with my Powerlet rapid fire heated glove liners. How is the fit of these gloves in general? Would I need to size up for the liners? Dec 7, 2013

Robert M: I would definitely size up. Both the Element Long Gloves and the Adventure gloves I purchased are sized smaller. I typically wear large size gloves and after research on the Element Long Glove, it made sense to go a size larger. I ordered a 2XL and it fit very snug. So snug that it became more difficult to remove when damp with perspiration. I thought the leather would stretch, but the snug fit caused a problem with one of the seams. I sent the gloves to Klim and they replaced them with a new pair. I am in the process of ordering a 3XL from Klim and returning my unopened 2XL pair. I recommend you go 2 sizes up for the liners. If they fit snug with the liner, don't rely on the glove stretching. Return them and get 3 sizes up. I use this glove for cool weather in Colorado and carry a warmer glove along to switch to when they feel cold. Have a Merry Christmas.

Rusty A: These are excellent gloves (my favorites out of 7-8 pair) that run true to size and only shrink slightly the first time they get wet. I would probably go one size up for liners.
That being said, these are not completely waterproof and run on the lightweight/breezy side for cold weather use. I consider them to be 3 season.
Your money would be better spent on the high end gerbing gloves (the ones with built-in armor). They are heavy but comfortable, warm, pretty darn waterproof, and there is no fussing with bunched-up liners.

Ian J: I found the fit to be pretty tight, which I like in a MC glove. I'd size up for liners. Liners are a good idea in cold weather, which I learned recently. These aren't that great in cold weather by themselves.
Unfortunately I don't have liners to try with, so this is just my guess. I'm assuming the heated liners aren't super thin like a regular glove liner is.

Bill K: Doug. The gloves are very good. The Powerlet liners are great! I have the XL Klim's and with the liners they are a little tight. I use the gloves year round. If you are going to just use the Klim's in the winter you might want to upsize. Order them and try them both before you ride. Send them back if the fit is not right. Thanks, Bill Dec 7, 2013

Greg C: I have these in a large and they are tight I was hoping they would stretch a bit when broken in but didn't and wish I would have bought the XL. For reference a Held size 10 fits me perfectly. My hand measurement is 9.5" If you are going to use a liner you may want to up size depending on your hand measurement. I hope this helps. Dec 7, 2013

A shopper asked: I like the long version over the short for the upgraded features. My jacket is pretty bulky itself, I would prefer to ride with the glove inside my jacket cuff. Am I going to end up with a bunch of material fighting for space?
Also, is the visor wiper adequate? The video doesn't mention it. I use my wiper quite a bit (this is one reason I am shy about the Rev'It gloves, but still considering.)

Brent I: I wear a Rally 2 Pro jacket and these gloves fit inside the cuff perfectly. Most jackets have an adjustable cuff in order to accomodate different sytle gloves. These gloves have a nice narrow opening once the gloves are on (does not fit tight or hamper wrist movement) and do allow for sufficient air flow into the jacket sleeves. I think these gloves really hit the mark for a 3-season glove. I have used the vsior wiper only once and it worked perfectly. As in any visor wiper on a gloves, the key is to keep it right on the visor. Jan 31, 2012

jojodrum3: The gauntlet material is pretty thin and fits inside my Scorpion street jacket ok. It's a little tight but not bad. The glove doesn't really fit around the outside of the jacket sleeve very well though. The wipers are only about 1.5 inches long on each glove and don't really work very well. Jan 29, 2012

Raptorpower700: Klim element long ... If the jacket is bulky, these should fit okay inside. The Velcro strip is pretty generous and can be put on pretty tight ( I have thin forearms also). As far as the wiper, I haven't had the opportunity to use it. It appears as if it will function well. Mar 17, 2012

A shopper asked: I have wide palms with longer fingers so always wear men's gloves, but have a problem with most Velcro wrist straps-- when strapped over my women's wrists, there isn't enough of a contact patch for the Velcro to stay closed at speed, especially if the extra length flaps. Rev'It gloves are a rare exception. How do the Klims compare? Jan 14, 2012

RevZilla: All Klim Gear is made in Klim factories in China. Also, since many of the Klim products use Gore-Tex, the factories must be approved by Gore-Tex personally. Anytime Gore-Tex is used by a company, their manufacturing process must be approved in order to ensure that all Gore-Tex products are made to the highest standard. Similarly, when a company wants to use Gore-Tex in their products they must first submit their product design to Gore-Tex for approval. Then several prototypes are tested by the Gore test facility in the USA to ensure that the product performs in the way that it is designed to. Once Gore is happy that the product meets their standards, they will give the said company final approval to use Gore-Tex on the product. Then the factory that produces the product must be approved by Gore-Tex, otherwise Gore will give the said company the option to use a Gore owned factory instead. Oct 15, 2012

A shopper asked: Does the finger length differ in mediums? Or is it just palm circumference? I recently purchased small, but the thumbs were a little tight, and my other finger tips didn't touch the ends. If the mediums have a larger circumference and same finger lengths, then this might be a good choice for me to size up Mar 17, 2012

sbuxmarine: It is my experience that the finger length does get longer with palm circumference. I tried on a few sizes at the local cycle shop, same brand, different model, and was glad I ordered the net bigger size than I usually wear. They are just slightly tighter than my summer gloves of the same size, so i upsized. I can now ride comfortably, and may have enough room for a very thin liner, however at 34 digs riding, haven't needed one so far. Feb 18, 2013

RevZilla: Going up a size will change the dimensions all around. The fingers will be slightly longer, slightly thicker, and the palm will be wider as well. Mar 21, 2012

Clifford A: I ordered extra large and even they are a bit tight across the back of the hand and tend to cut off circulation if I am gripping at all hard. My usual glove size is a large or xl. So I would suggest you step up to the large. Revzilla is good about exchanges if that doesn't work. May 21, 2014

We highly recommend finding a cloth tape measure and taking the time to take these measurements.  Klim sizes will not necessarily correlate with fitment in other brands.
