REV'IT! Dirt Gloves
Europeans must have little fingers
This is a great glove if you have little pinkies. What's the deal with that? It makes no sense. I'm a U.S. large glove size and bought the XL. These would fit perfect if I chopped off a 1/4" of each of my pinkies. Ironically, the U.S. term "pinky finger" comes from the Dutch word "pink" for little finger. Rev'IT! is based out of Holland. You'd think they would know better. If you have the European little finger gene, these are perfect. All other features are solid.

Awesome pair of gloves
I really like this pair. Previous one got stolen and I re-ordered the same model without hesitation. Their only disadvantage is that they are not touchscreen friendly (as the newer model). Managed to solve this with some conductive thread sewing.
The gloves are very durable and in several occasions did a nice job protecting my fingers when skidding.

Looks, feels, and functions great .. not yet sure about the durability but i'm guessing from the looks of it that its going to last

Great style, great comfort, very durable, its just great!
I have been using this pair of gloves almost everyday for over a year now and it still in perfect condition. So far from the experience of using it, I have nothing to complain about. I took the S size according to the measurement chart, it felt a little uncomfortable or too small for the first week or so but started to break in and it feels perfect in my hands, looks awesome (it looks much better in person than in the photos) - especially the knuckle shell looks very solid and strong, it has the palm slider too! If you are looking for protection and the gloves that can provide comfort, style, durable with a reasonable price this would be the perfect one! I bought this pair of gloves for $130 in Australia last year as now has gone down to $75 its a great bang for the buck!

Great summer gloves!!
The Rev'It Dirt gloves provide ample air flow, protection and comfort.
Great quality for your money. As far as size is concern, keep in mind that they do run a bit small. For example, I am normaly an extra large(XL) size, however with the Rev'It line I have to go up one size (XXL).

Ok so far
Order these in your usual size first. I'm not sure about folks who suddenly have monster hands. This is a good glove if you're looking for mesh for airflow but still want good protection. Being used to perforated leather, I was expecting more airflow than what I feel with these during a ride, but it's still pretty good. Have not tried these on a hot summer Texas day yet.
If you have thin wrists like me, you may find the cuff too big, although I really don't. The stitching on the outer thumb should have been designed differently, which is my only gripe with these gloves. The stitching there tends to feel a bit abrasive while gripping. This is the main reason I wouldn't recommend these gloves: you can probably find something more comfortable for less money. But if protection is the priority, these are pretty nice.

I put these gloves through their paces...
I've used these gloves for 3000 miles now and they're still holding up well. They've been through rain, shine, and a 15 mph fall. It's the little things like the slide protector and well positioned seams (or lack thereof on the impact areas) that ended up saving my hands from some nasty road rash and the gloves held up.
The only problem is that the mesh gets "frizzy" at the ends of your fingertips from use. Eventually I suspect that the mesh will eventually undue itself at the fingertips, and this appears to be the weak point in the glove. My father also has this same glove and the same thing is happening to his gloves as well. However, it's a small issue and I really don't see it becoming a real problem anytime soon.
It's something I'm willing to compromise to be able to ride in 90F weather as well as 35F weather. As said before the airflow is good while being restrictive enough to be used in colder fall and spring weather as well as hot summer days.
I'll probably buy these again.
Btw impact was taken mostly by my right hand glove.

I have been using these gloves for a couple of months now. I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of ventilation they provided for my hands. Very good summer glove. The fit is perfect all over and the protection seems good, though I hope to never find out.
