REV'IT! Carver H2O Gloves
a bit tight, a bit too clothy (especially the insides)
I bought short-cuffs b/c i wanted something that was faster and easier to put on and go rather than my long-cuffs which take a bit.
This glove is a bit "clothy" for my tastes and doesn't really feel like a motorcycle glove. The touchscreen features works decent but that's about all that worked as expected.
These shortcuffs are a bit harder to put on than i'm used to b/c it's hard to get a grip on the glove and pull (due to its clothy-ness) - you feel like you're going to rip the gloves.
People keep talkin about "this isn't a cold-weather glove" and I would probably agree looking at it's quality (again, very "clothy" like mittens). But I moreso say, this is NOT a warm weather glove either b/c the clothy-ness means it doens't breathe as well, thus any sweat will soak these gloves fast (as they did this past weekend) and once a bit moist - IMPOSSIBLE to put on as the cloth rolls on itself, can't get a good grasp to pull without feeling like you're going to rip the glove, and b/c it wears small.
This.. from somebody who has smaller hands and tends to not be able to fill in gloves that well!
When a long-cuff comes off being the easier to get on/off - then something isn't right. I would not recommend this unless you want somethign softer and more clothy - but clothy isn't good for riding.

Great product. The size table is not so correct.
Great product, and very good service from the sellar...!! But you must check the size orientation. I bought 2xl (the table indicates only xl for me), and i tnink that it would be better a 3xl....! But, im agree in general...!!

Good gloves but not for cold or wet climates
If you are looking for a pair of gloves that are great for temperatures from 60 to 40 degrees then these are great. They are aren't bulky gauntlets, they are rather comfortable, the size is very good for my large hands and the touch function works very well.
Despite being labeled as waterproof, they really aren't. They might stand up to a light drizzle for a few minutes but they will soak up most of the water after that.
When it comes to the cold, anything below 45 degree's and they really don't hold up all that well. Only takes about 10 to 15 minutes for the cold and the wind to seep through the gloves and start number your fingers.
Still, for a good all around pair of gloves for good cool weather they are great. I use them for commuting to work which they excel at but if you are looking for gloves that can stand up to the rain/snow and cold than go for a heavier pair.

Touchscreen access without taking gloves off!
So I thought that the touchscreen part of the gloves was just going to be on the tips of the fingers. That would be awkward, but doable. It turns out that there are panels that wrap around the end of the fingers as well which make it very easy to activate the buttons / slides on the screen. As others have mentioned I wouldn't count on these gloves working below the 40's without guards and heated grips. Even with those I wouldn't think they would be effective low into the 30's. I haven't had a chance to test that yet, but will before the winter is over. All in all I'm very pleased with the gloves.

Great winter riding gloves
Got these to ride in the Piedmont NC winters (35-50 degree averages). Gloves are great. If it's above 50 my hands will actually start sweating a bit (a good thing!) and I'll move to my three-season Rev-it gloves. Gloves aren't bulky at all. Blocks cold air flow from going through gloves well. Can't say much else other than I'm very happy with them.

nice glove- not warm enough
Wanted a strong winter glove- love the ability to use your phone (deciding factor having everything else equal) but just thought they would be warmer in cold riding. Tolerable- just not what I thought. Can't not recommend it because of it as everything else is really nice.

Best mid season glove
These gloves are the best fit and comfort insulated glove that I have tried . I use to only wear my violator glove's w/kangaroo palm due to the textile feel short of freezing my hands off. Now that I got these they are super SUPER comfortable ! They do have some bulk but nothing like a winter glove. They will keep your hands warm and dry . I would say for a short commute winter glove they will be just fine . If you go for a long ride you will feel some cold but its better than full race gloves in winter or the bulk of a winter glove . My plan is winter and spring . Race glove's for summer.

I went through quite a few different gloves and sizes before finding something that fit me right and fit my style.
The Carver isn't overly styled or too obnoxious looking. Something you could ride to work in and not look like a wanna-be racer while still offering some protection.
