REV'IT! Chevron Gloves
The REV'IT! Chevron Gloves are replacements for some well worn Alpinstars. I ordered a size larger than normal based on the reviews and glad I did. The gloves seemed very tight at first, but after the first ride felt great. These gloves have much more protection than the ones retired and seem to have plenty of air flow. I did not rate the protection & durability item on the survey because I've only just started using them. The construction seems good, but I'm worried about some of the reviews about the gloves durability and protection. (I hope I never have to find out about protection).
I would buy these gloves again.

Good amount of glove for the price
These gloves replaced a pair of gauntlet gloves I had so I was stepping down in the the technicality of the glove but I feel these are just as strong and they are very comfortable.
The airflow is great if you spread your fingers a bit.
My only cons were fraying of the ends of some of the threads but that seems to happen on all gloves when you ride almost daily like myself. There was also some plastic material on both gloves that perturbed inside and stabbed inbetween my thumb and index finger that I had to trim off but afterwords they were perfect. I wish that more gloves connected the pinky and ring finger though.

Love the fit, wish they were more durable.
These gloves are super comfortable to wear and I love the airflow. Unfortunately, it only took a few months for them to start showing signs of major wear. For a motorcycle glove I'd expect a high level of durability, and the fact that they wore down so easily makes me worried about getting in an accident with them.

I bought these gloves and loved them for all of 3 months before I had an off. A moderate one, 25-30 MPH, landed on the right side. nothing too serious, some road rash, no ambulance ride or anything. HOWEVER!! Stitching at seam of pointer finger popped. Seam at palm of hand popped, seam at ring finger knuckle popped. Conclusion? Not worth the $100+ I paid for them. My hand is ok, minor cuts and abrasions, but to have had these seams pop at 30 MPH?!?!?! Imagine that speed doubled, your hand is shredded. If I could figure out how to upload the photos I would. I really liked these gloves, pretty much 3 season rideable. They just totally failed when I actually needed them. Rev'it a no go. Sorry.

Great ventilaton for hot weather, well executed design and fabrication.
I got the white with black trim to minimize heat (radiation) absorption in the summer. White combined with the excellent ventilation results in a great hot weather glove. The run small, so buy a size larger than you expect. I have worn these for 2 years and they have many years of life remaining. Excellent design and execution. Recommended!

Cómodos, tamaño ajustado
excelente calidad y terminados. El tamaño es muy justo, si tienes las palmas de las manos grandes te recomiendo una tal mas arriba, sino la talla es correcta.

Excellent Pair of Gloves. Excellent Price.
As a rookie rider I was simply looking to as high as I can afford while still finding a pair of gloves that would provide the protection needed. Thus far I'd say the Rev'IT! Chevron gloves met my expectations. At $109 they were easy enough to bit the bullet on after a few video reviews and Customer reviews.
Style - These are a pair of stylish looking gloves. The short cuff offers protection up past the wrist while not becoming to obtrusive if you're wearing a leather jacket. I own the Black/Red color scheme and they look fantastic.
Comfort - After following the measurements I purchased a Medium. First time on these gloves are TIGHT. I'd say uncomfortably tight to the point where I as thinking about returning them the same day. However, keep in mind these do break in with wear. So with that in my mind, I risked wearing them out for a ride. These began to break in almost immediately. After three 2-3 hour riding sessions these have now broken in so comfortably that they fit like a...glove.
Protection & Durability - These will remain to be seen. Looking at the glove it does give the impression it will hold up and do its job in the event of a fall or mishap. As durability goes, those who've had these longer than I have can attest to this. As one who takes great care of my belongings I'm looking for these to last me at least 3-4 riding seasons.
Air Flow & Features - Air flow is great. You can absolutely feel the wind enter at moderate to high speeds. I haven't encountered sweaty hands during my rides. Features great knuckle protection as well as finger protection.
Overall, I am certainly happy with my purchase. If you measure properly and round up or down based on placement you will have no problem. Anyone looking for a great pair of gloves at a fair price should take the Rev'IT! Chevron gloves into heavy consideration.
