REV'IT! Alaska GTX Gloves
Good wet weather gloves
These gloves perform as advertised. They'll keep you dry and warm at any temp above 40. Once temps dip below that you'll want to add a base layer. I've used them around the Pacific Northwest in some pretty heavy rain with no issues. Sizing chart is an accurate guide.

great for utah
I really like the gloves. They work as expected. Took advice and got 2 sizes larger. Well worth the money in my opinion. Now just need my givi windshield and we'll be golden. The only issue with the glove. My figure tips get cold. But not numb. Like a ski glove. If it had a wind breaker like the jerico it would be perfect.

Could Be A Little Warmer
I like these gloves a lot. They're waterproof, comfortable and offer a lot of protection. My only problem is they aren't as warm as I was hoping. My hands got chilly in about 30 minutes of 50 degree riding. Not terrible, and certainly warmer than my other gloves, but I was surprised given the amount of insulation.

Great winter glove
I picked these up before doing a 1400+mile trip in October thinking they would be enough. They are great for just a couple hours of riding but after that the leather of the glove gets cold and once that happens your hands are cold, period. I ended up installing wind guards for my handles in order to ride longer without my hands freezing off. The built in squeegee works greats and I don't know how many times i used it. The cuff and wrist straps help you secure the glove over your jacket without much trouble.
Perhaps because they are still new that seem a bit stiff and I don't have full dexterity of my pinky finger, i suppose it isn't necessary but still. It feels like the pinky wasn't made long enough to correspond with lengths of the other fingers on an XL hand. still a good glove IMO

Good for 30-50 degrees F
I got these gloves to ride around the early stages of St. Louis winters and springs. (Don't plan on riding much during the dead of winter.) They're a little stiff but I expect them to break in after a few hours of riding. As everyone says, beware of the sizing. I'm a large with most gloves but had to go with an XL with these. Otherwise, these are some solid gloves. Great protection, and while they won't keep your fingers warm under 40 degrees, you won't get frostbite (so long as you only ride for an hour. Any more and yes, you might get blue fingers.)

Failed to be Waterproof
I purchased these gloves two months ahead of a fantastic ride to Romania where I was finally able to test them out. After a day of rain (and repeated the next day) the gloves were sopping wet and you could literally squeeze the water out of them. So, at 45 degrees, my hands were freezing. When I returned home, I contacted Gore, sent the gloves in, they tested the glove and decided to purchase a new pair for me. The service experience was outstanding, however, the glove failed miserably in being waterproof, let alone water resistant. Gore purchased another brand for me. I hope they work out much better! I should also mention that my friend had the same gloves on the trip and also had the same experience. The first day I had the gloves tucked under my waterproof jacket sleeve. After drying them off at night with a hairdryer, I started with the cuff on the outside the second day to no avail.

Top Shelf Product
I needed a pair of good/great quality winter riding gloves and after speaking with the sales reps at Revzilla, purchased these Alaska GTX gloves and could not be happier. Just a great, top quality glove that suits my needs perfectly. Morning commutes (30 mi) here in NW Jersey that start out in the low 30's till December. A snug fit at first but you can easily tell that the brake in on a product like this will be perfect. Thank you Rev'it and Revzilla

Pricey but good Quality.
Great gloves but run small. I normally wear a 2XL ...I had to order 4XL thanks to another review I read before ordering. I have only worn them in 40*F Degree weather so far and they were great. I want to see what they do in colder weather. Very comfortable and thick ...Just alittle stiff but I think as I use them more they will loosen up.
