REV'IT! Dirt Gloves
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.

Protective & Comfortable Dirt Gloves
These gloves strike a nice balance between offering good protection and also providing good airflow, both so important in dirt riding. They are stylish, comfortable, and offer a very good value. I highly recommend these gloves!

Solid gloves for the money. They look and feel well made. I wanted something that had good ventilation that also offered good protection and these fit the bill. I've ridden on a few hotter days and my hands never felt too warm and on a cool morning they weren't chilly either. I've also been through a minor spill in these gloves and they not only protected my hands, they also held up well.
According to the size chart I should wear a large, however, I normally wear an XL so I went with that and they fit very well.

The best REV'IT fit!
Okay, so I don't know what it is about gloves, but I have a hard time getting gloves that fit. Work gloves, casual gloves, warmth gloves... It doesn't matter, none of them are right.
My hands are broad, but my fingers are short. Thus, most gloves that fit fine across the palm leave my fingers with flapping tips!
Before I settled on these, I tried the REV'IT Chevron and Sand gloves. Both of them were tight across the palm, though the fingers fit fine. The Revzilla reps said those gloves would stretch over time, but I don't know... It was like I was struggling just to grab my grips!
Enter the REV'IT Dirt gloves. Finally, gloves that fit right out of the package! The palms weren't constricting, and the fingers fit just right!
I also like that the cuff doesn't have to be cinched to wear these gloves. I can leave the cuff open for additional airflow, and they don't feel like they're going to fall off. I like the knuckle protection, and the heel-of-the-hand protection is also great.
If you're looking for a set of gloves for a hard-to-fit hand, you owe it to yourself to give these a try. Take it from me: You'll love them!

fit was good from the beginning
I used these right away for a 5000 mile trip. The gloves fit so well they seemed like they were already broken in. I was comfortable at all times and the protection is there. I did dump my bike on a gravel road with no issues (to my hands). The only gripe is that the slider sits on the grip and sorta gets in the way, but its minor. Overall, a great glove.
