REV'IT! Dirt 2 Gloves
great features, protection, slightly small
These gloves are great...I love the feel of them, the protection, air flow, and the ability to use my iPhone with them...I feel they may run slightly small however as I bought a size XL and my throttle hand gets a bit fatigued wearing them...waiting for them to break in but I think it may be that my hand can't open up as much as it needs too...anyway, we'll see...they fit perfectly but a slight amount of room in the fingers or maybe across the hand diagonally from the thumb to the pinky finger would probably be even better...if these don't break in after a couple months, I may buy another pair, and would probably by the same glove or perhaps the Rev it Strikers, which are a little cheaper

A little tricky fit
Overall a great product. I consistently fit american cut Large, and euro XL, but the L dirt 2's were very snug. Exchanged for XL, and the thumb was still uncomfortably tight. The fingers were fine, so i kept them, hoping the leather in the web between thumb and forefinger would stretch, and luckily it has, at least enough to where I don't notice it any longer.
The touch screen fingertips are absolutely superb on my iphone 5s. I have a pair of rukka imatras with the touchscreen material as well, but its nowhere near as responsive as the revit product. I have no trouble texting (no, not while riding) on the small keypad. (Also using a lifeproof fre case)
i love the cuff design, and the fact they use microvelcro so it doesnt tear apart my cheekpads when i stuff them in my helmet.
Protection is more than i anticipated, perfect for my riding style. Not too technical to where i'd want a dedicated mx glove, and superior protection compared to the mesh a* was wearing. Not to mention the quality of construction absolutely spanks a*.
Great value, i would definitely buy again.

Perfect Summer Glove
I was looking for a summer glove with excellent protection that allowed me to use the "touch screen" feature on my iPhone. This glove meets all these criteria. I have a "thick" palm that, with many gloves that I have tried, numbs my hands. This glove has a snug fit, but is flexible enough that there is no issue with numb fingers.
Protection is superior.
My circumference hand measurement is 9.25 inches and the large fit was perfect

Great glove for warmer weather
This to me is a great 3 season glove. May not be the best for winter riding, but 2 thumbs up for the other seasons.

Excellent quality, but a bit stiffer than expected
I found the materials and the construction of this gloves to be outstanding, but I expected them to be more flexible and comfortable. It could be just a perception of mine since I was used to wear textile gloves with a much lower level of protection than these but better dexterity and ease of movement. I suppose they need more break-in time or I need more getting used to wearing leather gloves. Definitely something to try first if you can.
The fit is snug and I feel they will do a great job protecting my hands in a fall. The protective features are everywhere and very well thought. I can't say much about durability since I had them for a couple of weeks but the materials are very high quality and the stitching looks solid.
The cuff gets a little bit uncomfortable when wearing my jacket with the thermal lining, then again I was used to wear short cuff gloves before these, but I recommend you check how they fit together.
The only design flaw I have found is the velcro flap to secure the cuff, since it will scratch your skin unless you close it tightly, which can be uncomfortable since it restricts the ease of movement between your wrist and hand. The "hooking" side of the velcro should be half an inch shorter towards the beginning of it so it doesn't get in contact with your skin.
The touch screen features work very well.

I am a commuter who rides every day, I ride 8-10K miles a year. I have been through three pairs of gloves, Joe Rocket, Power Trip and A-stars. The A-stars are great but these are far far better. They have amazing breathability and the fit is spot on. Thankfully I haven't took a spill yet so i don't know how the protection is but it feels like it would be really great. I would recommend these to anyone looking for a sport touring style glove, with excellent features and value.

Good glove but I liked version 1 better
I updated my Rev'It Dirt Gloves to these new Dirt 2s, so I can describe a comparison between the two. After the first ride with these gloves, I realized that I didn't think about them at all during the ride, which is great.
However, I do like the cuffs on the older Dirt gloves better. The new Dirt 2 cuff has a velcro leather strap that is a bit stiff. This may soften with time, but I doubt it.
Bottom line is, this is a comfortable, protective and well-vented glove for all but the coldest days of riding.

Great replacement gloves
I bought these gloves to replace my Rev'it Monster gloves. The main reason was to be able to use my Iphone touch screen with the gloves on. The gloves work excellent for that purpose. I sometimes forget that the fingerprint sensor won't work with the gloves on though. haha.
I cannot comment on durability. Protection seems decent. This glove has mesh on the back of the fingers and wrist area vs the perforated leather on the Monster.
Also, between the fingers is a stretchy spandex-like material vs the perforated leather on the Monster. Overall, I think the Monster will offer more protection but I think the Dirt 2 should be adequate and these should be cooler when summer rolls around.
