REV'IT! Element 2 H20 Gloves
Comfortable while able to work controls and warm
These are very comfortable gloves upon first putting them on and easy to get secured and fastened. I have an Alpinestars Shark jacket with a tight sleeve and a Rev It Ignition jacket with a loose sleeve and this glove fits over both with no fitment issues. I have not had the chance to wear these in rain to test their rain proofing but I have had them in 40 degree temperatures at 70-100+ speeds for over an hour without any issues at all. Not even the slightest feeling of the glove letting in cold.
Over all I am very happy with this glove and think it would do fine for use as a commuter glove at least down to the low 40's if not potentially lower for shorter rides.

Ride in the elements
I purchased the Element H20 Glove as my winter riding glove for short outings to keep the bike running. The majority of my winter rides are less than 20 minutes and for that time span these gloves do the job. I have taken a couple 2 hour rides to the dealer for service wearing these gloves and they were at the edge of usefulness (Temp. 35 F and windy). I have found these gloves to be best suited for a temperature range between 30F-50F. Once the temperature rises above 50 my hands are comfortable but begin to sweat.
The overall construction is what you would expect from Rev'it - High quality, well designed, comfortable and attractive looking. The inside lining is comfortable and keeps your hands warm in the cooler months. The outside leather is smooth and breaks in nicely. The Velcro cuff closure is easy to operate with a gloved hand and secures the glove without irritation. Stretch panels are added in all the right places and allow the glove to adjust to different hand positions. I am a big fan of the temper-foam inserts and raised knuckle protection on the Element.
Overall, The Element is a nice glove for quick outings when the temps drop in the high 30s and 40s. The Element has solid construction and looks great paired with my Rev'it Horizon jacket. Recommended!

Great low cost cold glove
This is my first pair of winter/cold weather riding gloves I have owned and I am happy with this purchase. As others stated, they do run small, but I don't have long fingers so they are just tight on the palm. I have worn these on a humid 40deg morning with fog and my hands remained a comfortable temperature. The gloves were pretty stiff feeling on first use, which was uncomfortable on my hour long commute but now that they are broken in they are fine. For the price, it is a well made glove from very nice materials

Good but not stoked
First off, the gloves fit small. Anthony's video review was great but compared to my Dainese 2 Stroke gloves (which I own and love in Large) these are much smaller. Normally I'm a Large, these I bought the same size, the came way small, so I returned for the XL (Like always Revzilla was awesome about returns/exchange). Got the XL and tried them on and they felt right. Cut the tags and rode to work, it was 40 degrees that morning. The gloves held up great in the temp, I have a 45 minute commute. Hands were warm BUT the right glove pinky is too small, by the time I got to work it was irritated. Now, I love these gloves, and manufacturing gloves must be hard to get the right and left side perfectly the same, especially with an inner liner. But that's why I paid $125 for a pair of gloves, even for that price they had the MADE IN CHINA tag on the inside. I cut the tags so I couldn't return, I'm going to keep riding with them and hope that the inner lining stretches a bit but it's frustrating since the left hand fits perfect, and I mean perfect like it was made for my hand. I guess I should have ordered the XXL, but that just seems like way too much glove for me. I have friends who swear by REV-IT! products which is why I went with these, but I was expecting more for the money.

Keeps hand warm but a little tight.
The value for these gloves is good. They keep your hands warm but are a little tighter than other gloves with a similar size.

Good Glove but Small
I reviewed the sizing chart and measured my hands. In most brands I am a XXXL but the chart said affording to the measurements that I would be an XL. I trusted it and I ordered the XL. No good. That fit was too small so I swapped em for a 2XL, darn, still too tight so of course the 3XL was the right fit.
As always RevZilla customer service was great and we got the right size in the end.

Great! but not quite warm enough
Don't get me wrong. The gloves work as advertised. I've used them in temperatures as low as 20 but they really are only good down to the mid thirties. To be fair, I ride a naked bike so my gloves are exposed to everything. My commute is only about 20 mins.
