REV'IT! Boxxer H2O Gloves
1st mc gloves
This is my first gloves so I don't know what to expect or compare them to. Used them for BRC in breezy early mornings with temp of 40. I hate wearing gloves during cold weather because my hands actually get colder, but these help mine stay pretty comfy, albeit on the cool side. I got a M (normal gloves size). They fit great but not snug, perhaps S would since my hands are bony type. At low speed of 20-35mph, I felt no wind at all, even with a breeze. Riding around for a duration of over an hour below 40mph hands still feel great. Have no problem with inner lining, no fraying as yet, Very soft leather. Knuckle pads are right at the knuckles and aren't bothersome. Look pretty nice and low profile. Padding seemed a bit thin. Over all Im satisfied with them, so would recommended.

No airflow is a GOOD thing in the cold
I took these gloves to Patagonia for a 3 week motorcycle tour in January 2015. It's their summer but so far south, still saw temps as low as 40F. Before I left I tried (and test road in) several different "winter" gloves. I have notoriously cold hands, so even though our rental bikes were going to have heated grips, i wanted to be sure about wind protection.
These ended up being the only gloves I wore (except some light weight ones when we had hot weather and were riding dirt since they'd be easier to clean). But for road riding, these were perfect. The biggest issue with other gloves i have found is i feel wind through them. Not with these.
I have not had any occasions of noticeably sweaty hands either- I have only tested them in about 75F weather thus far.
The only thing I don't LOVE about these gloves is the lining sometimes gets pulled out or twisted a bit when i pull my hand out, making them hard to get back on. But I try to be careful when pulling them off and problem avoided.
The touch sensitivity is good on these too- that was an important selling point for me and I have been happy with whatever the tech is that Revit uses- it works with my phone even through a protective screen cover.
Comfort wasn't a 5 just because the rigid knuckles after hours and hours in the saddle kinda had my hands achy a little bit- but to be expected. Great all around glove and it looks pretty tough too!

Good looking, fairly effective cool weather glove
This glove performs best for me when temps are between 40 - 55 degrees. I have worn them during a 68-70 degree ride and my hands were a bit sticky/sweaty when I removed the gloves - no surprise there. Below 39 degrees and my fingers froze after about 20 minutes and that was with heated grips running full blast, so I quickly decided these were not going to cut it in the very cold temps. I like the fit, style, and functionality of the gloves. The elasticized cuff is sporty but as other reviewers have said, the cuff is probably a fatal flaw in wet weather riding. Overall, I'm happy with the purchase however and these will get much use on cool dry days.

These were just what I was looking for; a cooler weather waterproof glove. These are not bulky, a well made and great looking gloves. I haven't had the chance to experience the waterproof feature, unfortunately, but have high hopes that they will deliver. They are a little snug, but feel just right after a few rides.

Good but not great
Great gloves from 40 to 55 degrees they are just not heavy enough to handle a cold trip under 40 I have ridden in them down to low thirties my finger were num after about 15 minutes of riding and they are not waterproof they are a great winter glove for me in florida but I don't think they would work in colder

Decent glove, not ideal for winter.
Having ridden in temperatures down to 20F I can honestly say these will not be good enough for long trips below freezing. 30 minute commutes should be fine, but outside of that you should look elsewhere. The liner is thick and will more than likely effect your precision controls (horn, turn signals, etc). They do feel solid and comfortable. Honestly wish I had opted for a gauntlet winter glove, but I went with the stylish option. It's a solid glove for the price though, I have no major complaints.

Very nice gloves
Here it is straight to the point. Before I place an order, it's all about nailing it with getting the right size the first time around. The gloves are very comfortable and they look real nice, normally I wear large in gloves but in these gloves I had to order an extra-large. These gloves run small so order the next SIZE UP. Sorry I can't tell you how well they will preform in the cold due to the single digits temps and the ice on the ground here in up-state N.Y But I think they will do just fine.

Not quite as warm as I had expected
First off, these gloves look, fit and feel great! My only complaint (and it's an important one) is the gloves do not keep my hands as warm as I had expected. Anything below 50 degrees for any length of time wil result in cold hands. Fortunately I have a short commute to work. If you are looking for a late fall, early spring glove then this is it.
