REV'IT! Fly Gloves
An excellent Fall/Spring, mild summer glove
An overall great glove offering good protection with quality construction and materials.
This is my third set of Rev'it gloves (not of this type) and falls into the same sizing pattern as the others. They seem a bit on the small side. I normally wear a large glove in most other brands but when it comes to Rev'it, I have to go x-large.
On really hot, sunny days, these gloves will get really warm and don't really flow alot of air. For those days, I have a mesh set I resort to, granted I sacrifice protection for comfort.

Size chart is wrong, order a size larger than you normally take.
I needed a short cuff glove that would pair up well with my Rev'it Flatbush jacket. My hand width diameter is 9.75" which puts my at the top end of a large, so I ordered XL and they were way too tight. I don't mean like,"maybe they'll stretch tight", they were just a size too small. I exchanged them for the 2XL's which are still snug, I wouldn't want them any smaller. They fit about like my Dianese full gauntlets in XL.
Rode with them once so far and they're good. Very nice leather (goatskin), very comfortable. I wish I could have found a glove that had this appearance with a little more protection like a race glove, palm slider would be nice.
But overall these are great, I looked at almost every glove out there and this one was the only one that came close to what I was looking for.

Great gloves, good quality, affordable price
I like these gloves for the simplistic design, yet durable protection. They look nice and the leather feels good. Not too bulky either. I do sometimes experience numbness in my fingertips after wearing them for sometime, but I feel that will go away after they are broken in and conform to my hand. Overall, really nice gloves.

My hands are more comfortable in these gloves than they are without anything on. They get more comfortable with each wear like good pair of boots. A little pricey but worth it in my opinion.

Fit is accurate. Quite satisfied
i ordered these gloves because my hands are smaller than average based on my body size. i really liked the look of the gloves and decided to order. The size was very accurate and looked as expected. Only gripes is that the leather on the top knuckle got a scuff quite easily and there were a couple of fabric strings sticking up here and there. i just cut them off and issue was resolved. Good gloves though.

Amazing gloves - a must have
These are my go-to gloves for 95% of all riding. 3 season easy. Super comfortable and suppl but with hard shell protections under the leather. Discrete, super comfortable and I just received my second pair (others lasted 5 yrs & only now starting to crack some of the palm leather.
I wear an XL in most gloves but an XXL in these.

Did the job when I went down
I'd become a Rev'it convert after taking a slide and roll in some gravel at 55mph while wearing one of their touring jackets and not having a single scratch or bruise on my upper body.
When it was time for new summer gloves, I didn't even look at other brands. I'd only had my Flys for a few days — was still breaking them in — when I had a little mishap in a tight corner when descending a mountain road. I slid into a pile of rocks at the embankment. Once again, good gear saved my bacon. The gloves were ruined, but even though the palm of one was shredded, my hands were free from abrasion or impact wounds. Can't ask for more.
Worst outcome was that I ruined a new pair of gloves I really liked!
My only criticism is that in the XXL, I found the wrist to be a bit narrow when putting them on. But as I said, I was still breaking them in, so that may have improved. Other than that, they were very comfortable. The much cheaper gloves I bought just to wear for the remainder of my ride home were awful in comparison.

I like these gloves
I bought these gloves because I was looking for a glove that offered some protection and didn't look too flashy. They are very comfortable overall. My one complaint is that the thumbs are a little too short when you want to reach for your controls, as many other reviewers have already pointed out. That's why I gave it 4 stars. But overall they seem to be well made, are comfortable, have some decent protection, and look good for cruising. They also fit true to the sizing chart. I measure just shy of a 9 inch hand width and ordered a large. They fit just right. I recommend them!
