REV'IT! Bomber Gloves
Great summer glove
I originally bought a large based on the measurements but needed a medium. Overall a great glove even if the sizing is kinda wacky.

Big wrists required!
I really liked the look and protection offered with this glove but I have to return them. I didn't have the thumb web problem everyone else is having, but I do have a couple of fitment issues with this glove.
The fingers are maybe a hair too long and the webbing in between the fingers on one of my hands was a little tighter than the other. The palm and thumb area fit well giving me full function of my hands in the glove. The real reason I'm returning them is because of the wrist. Theres way too much fabric for me! I bought a large since my hand is an American Large but the wrists are too large. I am 5'11" tall, weighing 175 lbs and when fully Velcroed shut I can still fit 4 fingers flat between my wrist and the glove. I could forgive this, except the looseness of the wrist goes all the way up the back of the hand to the knuckle protector. I've never had this problem with any other Rev'it glove, which is disappointing. The only reason there should be this much room is to tuck your jacket sleeve into it.
Comfort wise, I didn't have any big problems. Like most gloves they will probably feel better once broken in, but I won't be doing that.

This glove appears to be a fantastic balance between protection, style, and price.
I had to return these gloves because the sizing was off. I have a fairly standard sized hand, and like many others are saying, the thumb-index-finger-web is way too short. The four fingers were very long (almost too long, but actually still great). I am surprised they chose to design such a short thumb placement. The plastic slider also seemed a bit too distal for my preference, although that could be attributed to sizing.
I would have loved to keep these. They were exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately the thumb placement means no dice.

You really have to break in these gloves.
Great glove for summer riding but while the fingers are perfect for my size hand the web (thumb to forefinger) is too short. You have to really break these in to get them comfortable or you probably have to go with a larger size and have flappy fingers. I chose to break them in and they are pretty good now. These gloves require patience.

Nice glove, good protection, but I can't extend my hand enough.
The video review mentions the many things that led me to purchase this glove. Plastic palm slider, vented leather, vented knuckle protectors, plain black style without to many logos or sportbike looking doo-dads. Unfortunately the thumb of the glove (sz L) is weird and I can't ride with them. Specifically, the 'web' between the thumb and pointer finger is too tight for me to extend my hand and reach the turn signal, clutch and brake.
The salesman mentioned this to me but it didn't feel like an issue in the store and they seemed to fit well. Only when I got on my bike to ride away did I realize that I couldn't reach out comfortably. It's a bummer because I like the protection and style they offer.

So far so good
Bought these, my first gloves, before ever riding a motorcycle. The features are exactly as described in the video, and for me, it came down to this combination of features matched what I thought was important.
The only criticism that has come to mind is that the knuckle protection seems to be for a smaller sized glove, the knuckles in the glove do not line up with the bases of the fingers of the glove. Now that I've noticed it, it really bugs me, but I might be the only person in the world who has noticed it. Generally, do remember to measure both hands, as I was surprised to learn mine are not identically sized.

Fantastic Gloves for the Road
Fantastic gloves for the road. These gloves fit so well for my hands and tuck very well under my jacket's sleeves.
These stylish gloves feel great when I am on the road but I forgot that I was wearing gloves at all when I was off road. Sadly, my friend's bike was stuck in the mud and I stuck my hand into the mud without thinking to dig it out - the water easily penetrated the gloves but easily cleaned up afterwards. Next time, I'll be sure to wear some dual sport gloves =P

great summer leather
I'm a female with long fingers so I went for the women's XL, too small for me. I exchanged for the men's L and the fit is great. I cannot feel the knuckle protection rubbing against my skin and bones at all. My fingers feel comfortable too
