REV'IT! Carver H20 Gloves
My go to Winter Glove
This is my favorite pair of winter gloves. Out of the box very comfortable and still comfortable after my first winter riding season. Keeps hands from freezing down to 20 degrees so far. Don't get me wrong your hand will still be chilly but not numb and frozen! Also great for basic use of a phone or gps but typing on one isn't realistic.
I wear a medium in most gloves and these fit true to size. Would def buy again if something were to happen to this pair.

Decent cold weather glove
Okay, first these gloves are a Euro fit. I wear an XL in American sizes, but a 2XL in these. After breaking them in, they are very comfortable. They are goo at blocking out the rain, but their temp tolerance is not particularly low. On a day in the 40's, I get about 30 minutes before my fingertips are numb. Under 40 degrees, I have to use my silk liners to reach that same 30 minute thresh hold. Fortunately, my commute is slightly less than 30 minutes, but I do want to add that these gloves DO NOT have a windshield wiper on the thumb. I bought these because at the time that was listed as a feature. Nope. Good protection though, and I still get to ride when other folks are looking at me like I'm crazy, so overall it's a decent glove.

Not good for cold weather at all
I bought these based on other revzilla reviews saying how great they are for cold weather riding. I commute 35 minutes on surface roads. Even at temps around 40 degrees, I would arrive at work with ice cold fingers. One review I saw claimed that after a 30 minute commute at ~28 degrees his hands were "a little chilly but not too bad". I rode in one morning at 30 degrees and literally had to pull over halfway thru and jam my hands in my armpits for 10 minutes to de-numb my fingers. I'm not sure if someone reviewed the wrong product or what, but these are not much good for anything below 40 degrees at all.
Also, the lack of a gauntlet means at anything below 50 degrees, you're going to have cold air blasting right up your jacket sleeve unless you can manage to stuff a long shirt sleeve inside the cuff of the glove.
About the only useful feature is the touch screen compatible finger tip. Handy if you need to change something on a gps or switch tracks on a music player.
If you're looking for cold weather gloves, skip these completely. Decent for Spring/Fall rides but even then they aren't great.

Crash Tested - SUCCESS! Warm and Water proof.
I made the poor decision to take a bike with sport tires to my friend's ranch where there were several water crossings that I did not anticipate..
One of the crossings was very off-camber with a thick covering of moss under the running water. Immediately went down at about 20mph.
Did a long slide through water, my hands were still dry despite the soaked exterior of the gloves.
Barely any scuffing on the palms where I landed, and only light wear on the polyester backing where I slid. In contrast, my plastic armor had deep scratches and my Alpinestars Viper Air jacket had several holes in the forearm. These gloves are still good to go!
ATGATT - I got right back up, picked up my beast of a Honda, and rode off into the sunset like nothing happened.
(Almost had a video for you...but my friend deleted his dash cam footage. FFF##@*&!)
The carvers are comfortably warm down to about 40 deg F. Heated liners would be nice beyond that.
The touchscreen pads work flawlessly on my android phone and macbook pro touchpad.

Solid, comfy waterproof glove
This glove is nice because it's a really good compromise between protection and comfort. Not super bulky like a lot of winter gloves, yet with better protection than most. Hard knuckles, reasonable tactile feel, warm enough for cool rainy days. Also easy to get on and off. Fits true to size.

Warm enough for me
I like the knuckle proctection they give with a nice look. They are warm but they are not really a winter glove. I haven't get used to the touchscreen pads, but it's a really nice feature. Another good quality product from Rev'it.
Definitely recommend this product!

Good for the $
Good gloves for light/occasional wet weather duty. Not very well insulated though so don't expect them to keep your fingers warm in sub-50 deg temps. They do look really good and they're well priced. Overall decent rain glove that looks and fits good for the price

I like everything about this gloves the look the proctection. The one thing that falls short is, not a winter glove. Finger tips get cold then hands start to feel num. I am searching for a non bulky winter glove that kepp my hands warm for about 1-2 hrs morning rides.
When I ride sometimes early morn at 6am so cali its cold still dark outside. My hands are important to keep comfy and warm to me is a must. I will be returning them to try out another pair.
