REV'IT! Carver H2O Gloves
Rev'it has finally sized their products to fit true to size for the American market instead of requiring one to order 2 sizes up all the time.
They look great and feel great and for under $100 bucks seem like a good value.
These gloves are great for urban commuting in cold weather. They will keep your hands warm and dry at speeds under and brief runs over 40 mph.
However because they are not gauntlets, they do not work on the interstate and at temperatures below 40 degrees at speeds over 60 mph have a tendency to funnel cold air around the cuffs and up one's arms.

Great but tight
Nive gloves with more features than average. Fit is tight so order a +size than you normally would.

I live in Southern Ontario....Canada not California, and these gloves extended my riding season into November. They kept me dry in November rain but did get cold when the external material got wet even though my hands were dry. Reading other reviews I was cautious on warmer afternoons after coming home from work when removing the gloves so that the liners did not come out. The next time I wore them they were a little uncomfortable at the beginning until they settled in. This is the only reason that I did not give them a 5 star rating. Over all they are good glove but I will upgrade to a gore tex glove my next time around. Heads up that they do fit smaller than the measurements given. I had to return the Large for an XL.

Great glove for cold weather riding!
I was having a difficult time when looking for a glove in this price range for cold weather riding. I wanted something that would be comfortable, provide great feel over the controls, and most of all warm. These gloves met all my requirements. I rode in the 35 degrees (Fahrenheit) and after about 45 mins of riding i was feeling cold in the finger tips. Even then though, it was nothing unbearable. If your in the market for a reasonably priced glove for cold weather riding, I highly recommend these gloves.

This a great all around fall and spring weather glove. I've ridden in 30 degree weather with liners and no heated grips and my fingers were getting cold after 30 minutes later. Around 40 to 50 degrees, these gloves did the job! Had no problems! They are def. better than my alpinestars summer gloves. I got called into work one night and got caught in some rain. I rode about for thirty minutes and when I got to work, my hands were completely dry! I guess they passed the waterproof test! :) The fingertips for the phone work really well also. I wish they had a little bit more armour on the lateral side of the palm but it will do since they are a spring fall glove. Over all I'm pretty impressed with these gloves and they are not pricey and fit the budget right!

Bought this glove with the intention of a warm motorcycle glove. In the past I have bought other products that felt like they were ski/snowboarding gloves and were so bulky I could barely control the bike. This was not the case with these gloves. Today I rode at 21 degrees F and no numb tips! Tolerance may vary but I am very satisfied with the product.

Style and Comfort
I was looking for a short cuff glove that would take me into the cooler months when I switch over to a full gauntlet and these fit the bill perfectly. There are no straps to cinch the glove on but the fit around the cuff is snug enough to secure it to my wrist while not being constricting on the palm or fingers. They block the wind adequately for chilly fall riding and they are low profile enough that I plan to use them as my go-to winter gloves off the bike - hopefully the water proofing holds true.
Being a short cuff glove the wrist protection is of course nill but my jacket sleeves are long enough to cover the abrasion risk.

Product worth every penny! Obviously not for the summer but great fall and winter riding!
