REV'IT! Boxxer H2O Gloves
These are great gloves with awesome protection. The cuffs are nicely made and are tight around the wrists, keeping wind out.

Overall a great buy if you ride in cold or wet weather
Gloves look and feel great, my only gripes are that they run a little to big and they do wick easily.

Great for Mixed Weather
Took these gloves on a 900 mile trip to SW Colorado and they held up great! Weather ranged from mid 50's to high 70's and I never had a problem with being too hot or cold. Also rode through some torrential downpours and the only issue I had was when I put my wet hands into the gloves, which caused the liner to get bunched up around the fingers.
Overall they are great gloves if you plan to ride in a range of temps (up to about 80 deg I'd say).

Good gloves, but a bit bulky
I love these gloves for cool weather riding, but they are a bit bulky. This makes working the turn singles a bit awkward. Other than that I love these gloves and would recommend for others.

glove feels great
My size around my hand is 9 inches a extra large fits perfect, glove feels great,fits good, easy to use clutch and break. Haven't try in rain yet and weather is warm. I feel for the money these gloves will serve me well

Not really warm. Not really waterproof. Not really worth it.
First, let me say that this a very well-made and stylish pair of gloves. They really look top-notch and the craftsmanship is great. They're not too bulky and fit true to size. From an aesthetic standpoint they are really excellent.
However, that doesn't mean that they work particularly well. Once the temperature drops below 50 my hands will start to get cold after about 30 minutes at highway speeds. I really don't feel like there's enough insulation to call these a winter glove. But there's also not enough air-flow to use them in the summer. Above 70-75 they're too warm.
The performance of the waterproofing is similarly lackluster. A short trip through the rain and everything is fine. But anything longer than 20-30 minutes of rain at highway speeds and the liner saturates then starts to seep through. This leaves your hands not wet, exactly, but damp. Pull your hand out and the liner tries to come with it. As others have noted, the elastic knit at the cuff also becomes saturated. Trying to get your wet hands into the wet gloves is a struggle.
Overall, I guess these would work fine as an urban, commuter glove. But anything more (like touring) and they don't hold up.

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!
