REV'IT! Curb Gloves
Great Protective Short Cuff Glove
Grabbed these for $100 during a 15% off sale that Revzilla was having on Rev'it gear.
I had my eye on them as I have been extremely happy with my Rev'it Jerez gloves that I got a while back.
Overall the Curb is an excellent glove for it's price and probably some of the best protection you can get for a short cuff.
Ideally I would like the same unlined kangaroo palm that the Jerez has but that would obviously drive the cost up. Funny thing is that the Curb actually has a thin fleece lining so I don't know if I'd recommend it for really hot days. Another area that the glove could be improved is that I found the cuff to be much too large which makes it awkward to close.
Even with it's downfalls I would still purchase it again as it's the best I've found so far for street sport riding. (my previous short cuff gloves were both Alpinestars which both stretched way out and fell apart due to having synthetic suede palms).
A few notes on Fit:
I purchased a size large in the Rev'it Curb short cuff which is definitely the correct size for my hand (8.75" palm), however, I would have preferred a bit tighter fit to start and then to stretch it out with wear. The way it is right now I'm a little concerned that they could stretch out and be looser than I'd prefer. I did first try the size medium but it was way, way too small.

Good quality, comfort, protection & price - Awesome!
As a new rider, these are my first pair of gloves. I purchased them in August of 2013 for the MSF class. It was 92 degrees and my hands were fine, warm, but not sweating. At first the gloves seemed a little snug but broke in after a few rides. It's now November 4 and I've got about 1,500 miles on my F800 GS. The fit is awesome, like a second skin. No bunching around the palm or fingers and great feel for the controls. I took a ride last night, about three hours, and the temperature went from 52 degrees down to 44 and my hands were still fine. I've got heated grips but haven't had to use them yet. These really are solid 3 season gloves. Sizing can be funky so measure your hand and check with Revzilla. I measure 10.5 and wear a 2XL. - Ride Safe!

Amazing leather feel!
Great product very comfy. I would add some extra leather on the thumbs since it's hard to horn or activate the signals... Aside that I think they are great gloves for the buck .... Could ask for more... Definitely not waterproof if it rains... You will get soaked and granny hands...

These gloves are very comfortable.
I really love my new REV'IT Curb gloves. A little tight at first. Good protection while feeling like youre riding bare handed. Overall great glove.

I have about 9k on my Triumph Scrambler almost all of em with these gloves. They are extremely comfortable. They were a little tight when i first got them but they have stretched out just enough to make them really comfortable. They run pretty small. I normally wear an XL in gloves and I had to go all the way up XXXL on these. The amount of protection you get with these gloves for the price is outstanding. Luckily I havent had to test em out yet, but I feel good wearing them.

Great compromise between protection and warm-temp features
I was looking for a new glove that would give me ample protection for summer rides. I live in KY, so we get some reasonably warm weather here. Protection is awesome (haven't been down in them so I can't attest to how they stand up to a fall, but it *seems* really protective). Comfort due to sizing could be better. I have an 8.25" hand measurement per the fitting chart, which put me in between a medium and a large. I went with the Large, and boy are these gloves tight. Hopefully they'll stretch out a little. I wore these for a full day of riding and had compression marks on my skin from the internal seams. I might go with an XL if I ordered again. I didn't feel like I was getting too hot while riding either, so they fit the bill for warm weather. All in all a good buy.

Runs very small
After reading all the reviews here, I ordered 1 size larger than I measure. The gloves fit but are very tight.
Stitching is loose in one knuckle slider, I'm not sure how to fix it.
Leather is very thin and isn't durable in "non high-wear areas". After pulling the gloves off and on a few dozen times, the leather is already stretched out and worn thin around the cuff and underside of the fingertips.
For $120 I want a bombproof glove, not just an ok one.
Shipping was very fast though (2 days).
