REV'IT! Fusion GTX Gloves
These are worth it.
These gloves work great. I will say that at 18F your fingertips will get cold quick. Above 20F and these are awesome with the heated grips. Over 30F and you barely need the heated grips. I Haven't ever ridden at these temperatures and not had cold hands until i got these gloves. Definitely worth it.

I was looking for a cold-weather glove that would work well with my heated grips. The REV'IT! Fusion GTX gloves have worked perfectly for that application and are extremely comfortable. They are very easy to put on and take off. The gauntlet also has plenty of adjustments to go over the outside of my jacket sleeve. They are definitely bulkier than my summerweight gloves, but I still have very good feeling for all of the controls.
They work well down to about 35° but they do not block out all of the cold and wind entirely on my fingertips. If I was riding in these cold temperatures for longer than an hour I would be looking for heated gloves or liners. I have not used them in the rain, but I am certain the Gore-Tex would do it's job well.
I have used these for about three months and 1500 miles. The material and construction quality of these REV'IT! Fusion GTX gloves are outstanding. They have held up extremely well and are never tiring to wear. I would highly recommend these gloves and expect to get many seasons of use out of them.
RevZilla was Fantastic to work with as always!

Good winter Gor-Tex gloves
I bought these gloves for cold weather riding and I wanted Gore-Tex. I do not have heated grips. My normal US hand size is a large but fortunately was able to try them on in the Philadelphia boutique, (the staff was very helpful), and found that the XL fit me nicely. After 3 months of exclusive use, I have found them to be very durable and well constructed, I've tested them out down to 32 degrees F and they have kept my hands comfortable in my daily commute. They are a little warm above 50 degrees and will hold some moisture from hand sweat. Overall I am happy with the purchase and got what I expected. Not top of the line full on leather, but a nice compromise with a fair amount of protection that do not interfere with the tactile feel too much and keep my hands warm. I would buy them again.

Good glove for a chilly morning ride
I got these gloves to supplement my winter riding here in southern Arizona. The fit of the gloves are great. My hands measure 4" across the palm and 9.25" around. Since I was in between sizes and I was new re Rev’it I talked with one of the Revzilla gear geeks and went to one of the local motorcycle shops in town to try on different styles of Rev’it gloves. The XL seemed to be the best fit for me.
The past couple of weeks I have had to opportunity to test these out in some colder weather (34-42 degrees). My commute to work is a mix of highway, side streets and county roads. Around 42 to 46 degrees and with the heated grips on my 2012 Concours on low these work great. I have no issues going 80 mph down the highway. Once you start getting in the mid to upper 30s I notice my fingertips get a little chilly even with my heated grips on medium.
Since they are a thicker glove (as expected for winter riding), you do lose a little tactile response when riding, but not as much as other winter gloves I have had.
I have not had the chance to test these out in the rain, since it does not rain much here in southern AZ, but I expect that I will get a chance this winter to check this aspect of the gloves out. When that happens I will update my review.
Overall very good gloves that fit well and keep my hands warm during the chilly mornings

Well made product.
I have only ridden with these gloves a few times. I ride an F800GS with heated grips and hand guards and wanted cold weather gloves which would not negate the effects of the heated grips. I have ridden in temps from high 40’s to high 50’s so far and they have performed very well. Much warmer than high 50’s and they would be too warm to wear. I can feel heat from the grips in palms but less so in the fingers. The feel of the gloves is not too bulky on the palm side. The knuckle side is well insulated. As with all winter gloves you do lose some dexterity with controls. Fit is true to size. I have not tested the water-proof qualities yet. They seem to be made very well. I will have to spend more time in them and report back. Revzilla service has been excellent!

Great colder weather gloves with heated grips
I purchased these gloves based on their stated design compatibility with heated grips. I've only been riding with them for a month or two but in that time they've performed well. I've used these primarily for commuting is colder temperatures but also taken longer rides ~3 hours down to mid 30s F. With the heated grips and hand guards on my GS my hands are comfortable down to about 40 F, any lower than that for an extended period, > 20 minutes, and my finder tips start to get cold. I have used these gloves up to 70 deg F and at that temperature they still breath well enough to be comfortable without getting sweaty.
I have yet to test the long term waterproofness of these gloves but given the gortex liner I have no doubt they will perform well.
The safety features seem high quality and well placed including the hard palm slider and additional pinky finger padding. The cuff is of decent length and adjust-ability to go over any of my jackets, leather or textile with or without thermal liners. The aramid liners are very nice and soft, I don't know how they'll hold up long term but they're great as of now.
The fingers are thin enough that feel on the controls is pretty good and heat from my grips gets through the palms much better than thicker winter ski-gloves keeping my hands warmer.
Overall I like these gloves a lot. They work better with heated grips than any other gloves I've tried to date. For long distance below freezing riding you will need actual heated gloves. But for just above freezing temps these work great. I'd highly recommend them for anyone in need of an early spring/late fall glove.

These gloves keep my hands very warm in cold temperatures.
I'm so glad that Revzilla has videos regarding the many different kinds of gloves that are available for purchase. I was having a hard time deciding which winter gloves I wanted and Anthony's description sold me on this particular pair of gloves. Because I have to be at work by 7:00 am, I leave home around 6:15 am. I got tired of my cheap gloves letting my hands get freezing cold on the Interstate, especially in the mouth of the mountain canyon with swirling winds. I'm so glad that these gloves keep my hands warm in very cold temperatures in the low 20's while going 70mph+ down a windy canyon. My hands are literally as warm when I arrive at work as when I put them on before I left home. My hands and fingers are very glad I made this purchase.

Just what I needed
I had originally purchased the Alaska GTX gloves and although they are a fantastic glove, the thickness of the insulation in the palm negated my heated grips. The Fusion GTX gloves are exactly what I was looking for. I have been using them in low 50 to high 40 degrees with heated grips and my hands have been warm and comfortable.
Recently I was able to test them in the mid 40's and all day rain. With my rain gear sleeves over the glove cuffs, my hands stayed completely dry (and warm). It took the following day for the exterior of the glove to dry out (the leather portion) but the inside was dry as when I put them on.
Although more expensive than other gloves, my experience is the performance difference between Gore-Tex and other proprietary "waterproof" liners/fabrics is absolutely worth the investment.
