REV'IT! Dirt 2 Gloves
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.

Great gloves! But i have a short pinkie so it is always a problem. Wearable in 3 seasons for me with heated grips on the bike. When too cold, must put warmer ones on.

Good fit and quality overall - not sure about the touch finger material.
Overall, I really like these gloves - great protection features and quality feel. Previous Rev'It gloves fit very small, but the fit now is fairly true to size. This doesn't mean I would change down a size though; I used to wear XLs and I'm glad I bought an XL again, but they aren't as tight a fit now. If I had a concern it would be with the material used for the touch-screen friendly fingers. I haven't had an issue yet, but if there is a weak point this is sure to be it and when you first put them on the extra seams feel strange, but you get used to it. That said, I've found the functionality of it more useful than I ever thought I would; just hope they hold up. Ventilation is excellent.

Just finished a 1700 mile 3 day trip with these gloves. They took a little break in time but once they were broke in there great. I think the torrential downpour i was in helped out with the break in.The air flow is outstanding and your hands never feel clammy in them. Fit was perfect and the protection they offer is great. Cuff is the perfect size and lays under my jacket sleeve just right. Now i just need to buy a pair that are waterproof. Sold on Revit products and thanks to Revzilla for recommending a great product

I have so many pairs of motorcycle gloves, and for adv touring and even summer every day, these are my favorites.
They flow a ton of air, more than you would think by just looking at them. The materials feel really high quality. Good protection without bogging you down for dual sport riding.
The touch sensitivity is so great. I know his seems a little lame, but you will get spoiled by it so fast, that you won't want to use your others gloves that don't have it.
Fit was right on for me. Nothing negative to say...great.
I have have done a good amount of off road with these and they've been just right in terms of balancing ease of movement/comfort with protection.

Great glove if it fits
This would be a perfect glove if I didn't have weird finger lengths - my index and middle fingers are very long, but my pinky is short in relation to them. Which means that this glove for normal people has an extra 1/4 to 1/2 inch of space flapping loose on the pinky, while my index and middle fingers are cramped. It works in a pinch, but not great for long rides.
From a protection perspective, it's rock solid. Flows air well, it's not exactly breezy but my hand never felt sweaty and when I took off the glove my hand was mostly dry - and this on a 95 degree day in Louisiana humidity.
Definitely something to try first - gloves aren't as simple to size as taking the palm measurement.

Wish it came in women's sizing
Count me as another that wishes this glove came in women's sizes too. The men's small is still just a bit too large, and the fingers too fat for my tiny lady hands. (I wear a large in the Rev'IT women's Chevron gloves, and they fit about right). Otherwise, this is the perfect glove I've been looking for. Great balance between protection, breathability, and comfort. Really wanted to tour with them on our 14k mi Alaska trip this summer. I like them so much I took the tags off with hopes of wearing them anyway, but it turns out I'm just too picky about improperly fitted gloves for that. I've never worn them outside, and now I can't return them. Oh well, yet another piece of awesome men's gear I can't use.

went down in these
I went down yesterday due to a smidsy...the only road rash I got was from a small sliver in the glove where it has really light material on the side of the finger. all of my other gear held up perfectly and everything else on the glove was just fine. I really liked these gloves but I will not be replacing them with the same kind because of this.
