REV'IT! Carver H2O Gloves
good glove for warmth and keeping wind out.
just got this glove, so there's still a bit of breaking in to go, but so far, so good.
keeps the hands warm on cooler days (not really "cold" here in northern CA) and dry on the rare occasions it drizzles here.
good glove, good padding and protection, but a little tight on my hands (i have wide hands).

It's a good glove for fall/cooler weather
It's a decent around the town glove for fall riding or just cooler weather in general. The fit is pretty good but the fingers probably could use extra 1/4" in length but I bet they'll break in a bit after wearing it more. The glove is snug and so is the cuff elastic. The The touchpad fingers seem to work so far, I always find that after a while they get oxidized and don't work anymore. I didn't really buy it for that anyways, it's just a bonus. The leather has a great feel and gives great grip. Knuckle guard seems tough enough to handle some bashing. All in all a good set of gloves.

Excellent value for a city glove
I was looking for a glove I could use in the city and to have the touch feature so I could use my iPhone with it. I already got a summer glove and this works well for the New England fall. It is not as warm as my warmest winter gloves, but also not as bulk. Protection seems adequate for city riding. I wish it had another strap for the wrist, but Rev'it! has a model with that which is more expensive. On the up side, it is easier to take on/off. Sizing is typical Rev'it! which is on the smaller size compared to US Medium gloves (not as small as the Rev'it! of 10 years ago...). I'm very happy with the overall purchase they are I my go to gloves daily despite the fact that I have many!

Great performance under rain
I bought these gloves looking for waterproof protection. I commute mon-fri riding for about 40 minutes per day and sometimes under rain 2 days in a row in a tropical weather such as Costa Rica, where you could have rain 4 or 5 days non-stop. Waterproofness is great if you wear the gloves underneath the jacket (haven't tried it otherwise), you don't feel water coming in and you can feel your fingers dry even under heavy rain.
Another positive aspect is that you don't loose the feeling of your controls and still be safe wearing them. The only downside I would say is that it takes time to get dry, so if you were under heavy rain the day before and whant to use the gloves next day early in the morning, you better have spare gloves or put them in a dryer.
It took me a lot of time and had to read many reviews to decide what waterproof glove to choose and finally I think I made the right decision.

too short in the sleeve, fit is not as comfortable as other pair I own of same brand
bought the gloves for the summer riding in Alaska, had chance to used them since it rain a lot, found they are difficult to put in specially the piggy finger, the elastic sleeve is to small and short, so water get into you jacket and hands, leather is nice but overall i feel disappointed with the gloves

The only issue I have with them is the quality on how they were made. One hand fits fine but the other seems to have had the stitching on the index finger off center. There is a slight curve and twist sewn into it that makes the fit a little tight in the finger. Nothing that has me hating them. Maybe I just got an "off" pair. I do like how they look and my phone responds well to the touch pads or whatever they're called. they seem to be water proof so far but I haven't been in any down pours only light steady rain but my hands stayed dry.

Excellent everyday glove for cooler climates
This is the perfect alternative to your full gauntlet winter glove. A glove for when you are running your errands and have many stops to make. You can take your normal short cuff but it's too cold and your full gauntlet is just too cumbersome and hassle to take on and off between stops, this glove fills the role between the two.

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.
