REV'IT! Fusion GTX Gloves
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.

These fitted me a little small. My hand measures 10 inches
and bought a size 10. Well I find the fingers were a little short
I exchanged them for a size 11 . They fit very well.
These gloves are for colder temps. And feel like winter gloves.
Comparing to regular winter gloves , the palms have less padding, making them better at feeling your controls.

it is too soon to tell
Sorry it is still too white and slick to use them. My initial impression while trying them on for size is they are very stiff. I will have to see how they break-in

Not enough protection
I dig Rev'it, I've purchase 9/10 times from them with only a few glitches but unfortunately these gloves don't do the trick. I can't ride longer at 15min with these on before my fingers loose feeling. I ride all winter and my legs and body are all temperature numeral but my fingertips and frozen. With the heated grips and gear turned all the way up these are not enough to keep me comfortable and focused.

A Bit Disappointed
I'm a huge Rev'it fan so I was expecting a lot from these. But having had them for a few weeks, I've found two problems. One is that the gauntlet is so short and tight that it's extraordinarily hard to get them on. More importantly, the warmth isn't what I expected. On a 400 mile ride yesterday I shifted from my Gerbing's electric gloves to these when the temperature hit the low 50s and found that my fingers got uncomfortably cold, even with my grip heaters on, forcing me to swap back to the Gerbing's. For me at least, the comfort zone for these gloves is going to be 55-70 and there are other much less bulky alternatives in that range.
I also question whether the fit is "American." I wear a large in nearly every American glove so that's what I got with these. They work but are very, very tight leading me to wish I'd returned them.

great cold weather gloves
I bought these ones because is winter in the southern hemisphere were I live. My hands do not get cold at all and they don't get wet either.
I am very happy with them and I will recommend these ones to anyone.
They are a little bit bulky in comparison with other Gore-Tex gloves I have worn, but after a few rides you get use to them.
They feature mostly soft protection, and a tiny small hard protection by the outer side of the palm.

Very good glove, but has room for improvement.
My previous winter gloves were a Rev'it Celsius that I've had since 2005. The Fusion gloves are a bit bulkier but with that bulk comes an extra bit of warmth. Taken as a winter glove they fit true to size, and the inner liner is very soft and comfortable. I don't really notice that the heat from the grip warmers transfer to my hands any better than with my old gloves, but that could be a result of the inner lining of the old gloves being so compressed and worn.
My only disappointment with the gloves is that they are not preshaped nearly enough. I think that winter riding gloves, especially because of the bulk should be shaped much like hockey gloves. The fingers should be curled enough that you should be able to hang an empty glove from a grip, and have it stay on it's own. While there is a small amount of finger curl, there's not enough. This results in material bunching especially at the fingertips which makes it hard to get the fingertips in contact with the heated grips.
That point noted, I'm happy with the purchase, and expect that I'll get many years of use out of these gloves.

Love these gloves
These will not replace heated gloves in very cold weather, but are perfect in the 35-60 range with heated grips. In fact they are made for use with heated grips. Above 60 my hands started to sweat (heated grips turned off).. Below 40 with heated grips at 75 per cent palms were almost too warm, but thumb statrted to feel the cold. Airflow is not an issue in cold weather.
Appear to be very well made and fit comfortably. Highly recommended for those days you do not want to get "wired up".
