REV'IT! Carver H2O Gloves (Size 3XL Only)
Great value cold weather gloves; wish there was more of a cuff.
I am very happy with these gloves, although I wish the cuff band was just a bit longer.
They have lived up to the waterproof claim so far, during my short work commutes.
They are fairly warm. I've worn them in about 15-20 F weather, with brushgaurds for about 30 minutes at a time. My hands were cold, but I could still feel them. That is about what I expected.

I bought this glove for winter here in vegas. After reading some reviews about it and recommendations for use in 30-40 degree weather i was convinced. Its very comfortable but it doesn't protect from the cold while riding in weather below 40 degrees and there is no room for wearing a glove liner or anything else.

Comfortable right out of the box.
I have been hearing of Rev'it quality for awhile now and decided to give them a shot. I needed some semi-warm, waterproof gloves. I have not had the chance to ride in the rain with these yet. They are warm, but under about 45deg I think you will get chilled. They are very light, stylish and well made. I think for spring and fall riding they will be fine, especially if you are caught out in the rain.
Look......... the truth of the matter about winter time gloves is simply that you need heated gloves for winter riding. I don't care how much you spend, cold will eventually get to you. I am talking about 45 deg and lower. As you know, when your core gets cold blood flow is restricted to extremities, so hands and feet will get cold. These are going to be fine for short rides in the spring and fall.
If you are serious about winter riding, then at a min get a Gerbing Jacket liner, Aerostich windproof Jersey, Gerbing Gloves, some fleece lined jeans to go under Darien pants, and finally Gerbing socks. Me and my riding buddies have been winter riding for years and we know what we are talking about.

These gloves are great, but don't expect too much you're getting what you pay for. The build on these gloves seems high quality and they are definitely warm enough for California Spring/Winter. There is a slight amount of bulk. This can be expected though from a winter glove, but I do not think that it hinders my ability to react or use the controls with confidence. This glove is not the warmest glove you can buy but leans towards a winter glove for me at least over a spring glove. Actually found myself sweating in these in spring, BUT that's in California. The electronic touch feature works, but in my personal opinion it'd be easier to just take the gloves off. The only small complaint I have is that people are correct about there being difficulty in putting these on with wet hands as the liner can fight you a bit. But all in all 8.5/10 STEAL for the money. Would buy again (in fact will be trying some more rev it winter gloves next winter).

More of a scooter glove
I did read that this was mostly for riders who have scooters and ride during winter but purchased this anyway hoping I can find a pair of gloves that gave me more" feeling" with the controls of the bike.
What I found was that after riding with these for about 20 minutes in sub 40 temps, my hands became numb from the cold. The palm area isn't armored and my bad habit of putting some of my weight on the handlebars didn't help much with the slight pain I get when riding with really thin gloves.
Overall, this glove was somewhat waterproof and I would recommend this as a late fall or early spring riding gloves depending on how cold it gets out there. They are really comfortable and fits true to size but does not include much crash protection. Also makes a good spare as a passenger glove too.

It's ergonomically constructed
Very well made. However, it's not a three season glove. I'm a daily rider. I've been riding in 45 degrees and below lately. I feel the cold seeping in through the fingertips and especially the thumb within 15 minutes.

Great "Cool" weather glove
I recommend this glove for temperatures warmer than 35-40 deg F. Any colder and you are going to definitely need a liner. My fingertips get quite cold after about 15 minutes of riding in around 40 deg F weather. They also fit somewhat large, especially in the thumb for some reason. The touch panels work great on my smart phone, though I wish they were a little more low-key from a style perspective. The internal liner is very comfortable and soft, and the stretch panel at the wrist is just tight enough to not need a strap. Highly recommend these gloves for the price! They feel like they will last a while too!

Good glove - down in the 40s
I bought this glove because it was on sale. It is a decent glove. Keeps your hands warm.
Things I don't care for are that the they run on the small side. Material inside tends to come out when pulling hand out.
No cuff to protect wrist from wind/weather.
