REV'IT! Bastion GTX Gloves
Works good in the elements
I commute 35 miles everyday (at "highway speeds") and these gloves work great if its raining or really cold. If its above 50 degrees, however, I would recommend not wearing them unless you want your hands to sweat or unless there is a lot of wind. They are bulky but they get the job done. I plan on using these until it gets down to the low 20's/high teens. I have a higher tolerance to cold weather.

A True "All" protection glove
It has withstood rain....no problem. Does fill like a bit of a bigger glove but if it can keep my fingers warmer on cold rides....who cares.

Great glove - Buy larger size
I measured my hand and it was about 10 1/4" so according to the size chart, I should have fit easily into the XXL glove. I have large hands, and tend to need to buy the largest size, but since there was a size chart available, and since it was very specific, I figured I would base my purchase on the chart. Well, the gloves arrived, and they were simply too tight. My fingers consumed the entire length of the glove fingers, and the glove was also tight around the widest part of my hand. I'm now going to order the 3XL, and hope for the best. But, it does seem to me that the sizing chart is simply wrong.
Other reviews seem to also indicate that the glove fits correctly, or is too tight. No one seems to say that the gloves are too large, or larger than they expected.
Although I have not ridden with the gloves yet, I found the workmanship, and technology to be excellent. These gloves are designed and built to keep you warm, and very safe.
I've also purchased the Revit Sand II coat, and the Revit pants and have fallen in love with this brand. Their clothing is well designed, very functional, full of features, durable, and stylish.
Well done Revit!
Well done Revzilla!

Good glove, increadably warm
The fit is like other Rev'It gloves. Its a very warm glove (a bit too warm for outside winter wear tho). Gauntlet zipper doesn't work quite as well as the quick on & off closure, as I still need to adjust the velcro belts to achieve closure over jacket.
Overall its good.

Good but not Great - Not for Very Cold
For the price the glove should have been excellent in terms of both wind resistance, protection, and comfort.
1. Wind Resistance: Good not Great, I rode for an hour in upper 20's to mid 30's, hands were fine but finger tips bordered on front bite. I pulled over once along the trip and did a few pressure squeezes to get the blood flowing. The glove is good down to keep your fingers comfortable to the mid-30's.
2. Protection: Good enough for Street / Touring but not like my Summer Racing Track Gloves. Streets are cold when using these gloves so I'm not knee dragging either.
3. Comfort: Very Comfortable interior lining and fit except that because they are a bit thicker it makes your hand work a little harder to hold the accelerator grip. They fit tight which is good as you don't want a bulky glove.
Overall, good gloves just not as great as I thought they would be blocking wind.

Does job as described
I purchased these because my old scorpion gloves failed me. I wasn't looking to spend as much as I did, but with prior experience I know you typically get what you pay for. This is true with these gloves. I ride in 20 degree weather with bark busters and heated grips. I can ride for an hour with complete comfort with these gloves. I would have to say that with out wind protection and heated elements that these gloves are good for 35 degrees but not any colder for me anyways.
These glove have good flexibility for a heavier glove. They do fit a bit tight at first but wear them around the house flexing them for a few hours to break them in and they are great. The gauntlet could be a bit bigger but it is manageable. All the features are great and I would certainly feel safe having these gloves on if I go down.
I wear a medium in my icon summer gloves but these I purchased in a large. The thumb is a bit long but the other fingers are perfect. I highly recommend these to all season riders.
