REV'IT! Fly Gloves
Good gloves, but very short thumbs
I wear any size from a small to large, but most of the time medium is my size. Most seemed to recommend going a size up for these gloves, but I decided to go with a medium anyways. Overall, the gloves were nice, with good knuckle protection and a nice snug fit. The fingers are the perfect length and width, but the only issue I have with them is that the thumbs are quite short relative to the fingers. I would say that my fingers and thumbs are fairly normal sized, so I though this was kind of strange. I decided ti keep them with the hopes that they stretch a little bit over time, and they haven't given me any issues so far on hour long rides.
I would recommend trying them on first as the fitment is a little unusual.

Pretty good basic gloves!
Great gloves...comfortable and decent protection despite being fairly basic gloves. That said, my one and only beef is the thumbs...I wish there was a little more give, although maybe with extended use they'll stretch more. I ride a Harley V-Rod and reaching some buttons like the horn takes some effort as the thumb doesn't give a whole lot. That said I'd still buy another pair in a heartbeat. So far velcro seems to be holding up and gloves are easy to get on and off.

Like a Second Skin
These are great light-weight gloves for summer. They a little tight at first, but after a few weeks I can feel them stretching and breaking in for a custom fit. Besides that, they look awesome without being obnoxious!

Would be good if they fit me
As others have noted, these gloves fit very very small. By the size chart, my hand measured an L with plenty of room to spare, but the L was very very tight. Returned it, and got an XL, and it still fits too tight on some parts (although now I have giant flappy pinkies).
I can't seem to get a confortable fit with these gloves. I also don't like how they feel when grabbing the bike's grips. I feel like they're a nuisance when I'm riding.
I really needed to wear them on the bike, so I didn't return them,
The construction itself seems to be of good quality, it just seems like my hands don't match the template they use. I'm just 5'7 and my hands are definitely not that big, although I have long fingers. For reference my previous Dainese gloves in size L fit me perfectly.
I'll probably get a different pair of gloves soon.

Awesome gloves. They fit perfectly using the sizing chart, and look and feel really nice. Not too busy, just a really good simple black glove with protection.

These are awesome summer weight gloves for around town. Low-key aesthetics with the right amount of protection and ventilation. Easy on and off since they don't have giant velcro straps or gauntlet styling.
THEY RUN SMALL. I typical wear a Large and needed to size up because the tips of the glove were pushing on my fingers too much.

Not quite right...for me, maybe for you.
I'd first like to say that this is my first pair of bike specific gloves, so do not have a lot to compare to in this genre. However, I have purchased may other types of activity specific gloves and use that a a baseline. I have had them for 2 weeks and put just over 200 miles on them.
Size purchased was a large per the sizing chart and subsequent conversations with Revzilla. I checked by measuring both hands and both are spot on 9" around.
I really, REALLY wanted to love these gloves. I STILL want to love these gloves. I think that what you get for the money is a glove with above average materials and an excellent feature set.
These gloves are just not breaking in and becoming comfortable. There are hot spots where there are internal seams (specifically outside index finger and thumbs. The gloves are too tight across the palms and make attempting to actuate hand controls (turn signals, radio, horn) a challenge-I have to keep moving my hands since I cannot get full extension of my thumb. It also seems that the right hand glove is a little smaller than the left.
They look amazing, and I get tons of compliments on them. I put them on whenever I can to try to stretch them a bit, but seems to not be working.
I have ordered a new pair of gloves (different brand) and will compare. If these break in properly, I will update this review.
Bottom line, I would not buy again. Just not comfortable enough for riding. I actually find them uncomfortable enough to be distracting.
They are not right for me. If they fit you and work for you, I would say these are great gloves.

good look,but not comfy
Since the gloves it's that structured,so the griping action actually put the leather back so much and hurt your finger tips.
