REV'IT! Chevron Gloves
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.

Big fan of Rev'It! Products. They have the style and protection I am looking for. My last pair of Rev'It! Gloves I owned for over 4 years. Recently my hand eczema started acting up and I found out it's because of heat and poor ventilation. My old gloves didn't provide the ventilation and made my had look like it went through a meat grinder. I got the new Rev'It! Gloves and they are very well ventilated. My only gripe is they are really tight around the palm of the hand right now so it is uncomfortable on long rides so I'm hoping they stretch out. Other then that, they match my helmet perfect and look awesome. Thanks Revzilla!

very nice gloves
when I first put them on thought they were a little small for my usually x-large size hands. After wearing them a few times they have become very comfortable. air flow seems decent but I have nothing to compare because these are my first vented gloves. the gloves appear to be very well made and are sharp looking. this my second rev it purchase and I like their products.

Great gloves, good price
When I purchased this product a year ago, there were a couple reviewers that said they had problems with durability and with the gloves ripping.
So I waited a year to review these to be sure.
For the last 6 months I have been 'bike only', so I ride every-single-day. These gloves have performed great through the heat, sun, cold, and rain. I have had zero problems with them.
In fact, they still look brand new!
I would highly recommend this product, as well as anything else rev'it branded (I bought one of their leather jackets at the same time).

Was very happy when i got the gloves but after about a week of riding the stitching came undone on two of the fingers along the sides and only on one glove so far. Other than that the gloves are great! My only complaint is the stiching but great gloves.

Nice style and great air flow but a few gripes
To start this off, these gloves seem great, but I feel that they could have been better for the price tag - nothing I couldn't get from similarly priced (or lesser priced) astars or other better grade gloves. The fit was weird as well. I have a pair of the H2O Carver gloves made by Rev'It and these fit very differently. I understand they are different style gloves, but the Carvers fit right on the money in XL so I ordered these in XL...the right hand fit well, but the left hand had a super loose thumb and pinky (not so cool that if I hit the turn signal I felt like my gloves were equal to parachute pants for fitment). Revzilla was awesome about an exchange so I went to a L. Now these guys are slightly too small. I really enjoy the style, so I kept them and though they've loosened up over a week or so of riding, they're still on the tighter side. To compare, my first set of gloves were Joe Rockets for $45, they fit perfectly and for the price the quality was awesome, but I wanted something better so I jumped ship when I noticed wear.
So, as expected, this tightness really messed up the comfort level but they have gotten better (or maybe I've just become more accustomed to them). However, I am blown away *har har* by how awesome these guys move air. They use a different material for the webbing between the fingers and it really helps cool off the hands, just don't rock them in cold weather.
The quality of the stitching, materials used and finishing touches all seem awesome, though. This got Rev'It some points in my book, but the fitment trouble, lack of touch screen fingertips and overall no noticeable difference from gloves that run $30-50 less (just IMO...maybe others think these gloves are extraordinary) they lost some points. I would give them four stars if they provided more of a warranty than 1 year, but for huge wear items like gloves I understand why they don't.
