REV'IT! Bomber Gloves
Well made, great style & tight until broken in
I purchased these gloves due to their minimalist style, perforated leather and palm sliders. Living in New Mexico with afternoon rides into the upper 90's, I can say that these gloves have terrific airflow and will keep you dry and cool. The leather is top grade, and they look really clean. The only thing to keep in mind is that they do run a little small. My first 12 hrs in these adequately broke them in but not without some digging into my knuckles were the protection meets the leather. 7 rides later and they fit well and I'm happy with my purchase.

Watching Don Canet go hands-out as he low-sided the Victory Project 156 bike in a qualifying run, I immediately thought to myself that I needed a better pair of gloves. The Rev'It Bomber is CE rated (CE rated gloves??? Am I the last to know everything?) with palm sliders and Anthony's recommendation was all I needed to know. With the exception of a longer sized thumb, the size Large is cut similar to my other large-sized gloves. There is also a slight binding between the left hand's middle fingers, but having knocked down more than 1400 miles in them this weekend I can say fit isn't an issue.

Great gloves but particular fit
Really like these gloves. Have basically everything I want in a protective short cuff glove. Really like the styling and perforation. Didn't think I'd be a fan of the external hard-part finger vents, styling-wise, but they don't bug me as much as I'd thought. Been riding in hot and humid weather (during the 90-100 degree heatwave in New England this summer) and while I don't notice the venting being outstanding, they've also kept my hand comfortable, so I guess they're doing their job well.
Only issue is the fit. I'm 6'2 with large palms and average-length fingers, and I find the fit quite particular. I started with an XL and the webbing from thumb to forefinger was way too short. I returned them for an XXL and the left hand fit is perfect. The right hand webbing between the 3rd & 4th fingers presses into my hands and can be irritating, but if I back the glove up a bit so my fingers don't hit the end that goes away. It's not a real solution, though, but over the past 2 days as the glove has broken in, I've found it's bugged me less and less.
Overall, it's a great glove, but if you've looked at past reviews you'll know webbing between fingers can be an issue. They fit small, in my view, I usually fit an XL glove in Dainese or A* and I ended up in an XXL in this case. Try them on before you buy if you can!
Would be 5 stars, but minus one star for the hard finger vents and fit issues.

Excellent summer gloves
I already had the older model Rev'it Monster gloves in a size large. These are the newer version of this style. Very similar with some upgrades - see the video review for details. I loved the Monster gloves, and I am sure I will enjoy these Bomber gloves as well. From the Revzilla review recommendation I went down from a Large size to a Medium. They were a little tight, but I am sure they will break in to a perfect size with time.
The only comment I have about Rev'it gloves is that their color has faded from black to grey after getting soaked in rain. They do not keep their dye.

Comfortable, good features... Not durable!
I've only had these gloves 2 months and the stitching on one of them is already starting to tear. Last pair of Revit gloves I owned lasted 3 years. Declining quality standards evident. Not impressed.

I love the way these gloves fit and feel. The ventilation is mind-blowing on this. It doesn't cause any hindrance for throttle, clutch and brake operation. The suede visor viper on the index finger is a well though-out idea. I would recommend this product.
