REV'IT! Hybrid WSP Gloves
Excellent value and perfect for wet days
Have been using these on a daily basis for a couple of months now through the New Zealand summer, temperatures vary between 16-25 degrees C (60-80 f) and I find these comfortable across that whole range. I'm sure come winter they will be even better. Water resistance appears excellent, comfort once broken in very good. Moulded protection looks good, quite subtle. General construction is excellent with high quality elasticated cuffs that seal well. My only very minor gripe would be I wish they were black - not grey! Recommended.

Great fall/spring glove.
These gloves delivered exactly what I was looking for. I have gauntlet gloves for the really cold temps and summer weight gloves. However, I needed to replace some gloves for those cool morning rides to work that are still warm rides on the way home. They block the wind as advertised, they fit well and I was wearing them at my kids Halloween school event hanging around parents who didn't even notice that I was wearing motorcycle gloves. I use these for temps between low 60s (F) and low 40s. Once we dip into the 30s I'll pull out the gauntlets. Ride safe!

Not for winter!
I was looking for winter gear so I looked into winter gloves and found these. they look great not bulky as all other winter gloves.
finally it hit 50 degrees and it was really windy. I decided to give the gloves a try. I figure it wasn't that cold so I'll get to ride with pretty warm hands at least. Riding around NYC highways my hands were freezing. so It's back to the drawing board for me because if my hand were freezing at 50 degrees. I imagine at 30 degrees I wont be able to feel them. I am very disappointed because they looked like everything I wanted my winter gloves to be but the case is that they don't over much protection from the cold weather.

Great material, strange fit
Honestly, these are very decent gloves: I've only had the chance to use them in fall, but they seem to keep the cold air out well. As others have mentioned, they are comfortable enough to wear as regular gloves, and they have the knuckles for that added cool factor (though they are quite pronounced, for anyone interested). The only issue I have with the gloves, which is my only reason for reviewing, is the sizing. My hands are small, and I buy small size gloves which usually fit fine. These are strange in that the fingers fit snug, but the palms and wrists are baggy. Also, there is no strap in the wrists to close them, and the elastic stretch band is basically useless, so some air can get through that way. Not going to return them because they were cheap and practical, but sticklers beware.

Great gloves and quality, but they feel like different sizes
The gloves are great. They're comfortable and serve their purpose. The only issue I have with them is that they feel like they are two different sizes. The right one is nice and snug, but the left is loose and slides off too easily which concerns me in the event of a crash

I like these gloves but be aware to probably order a size up. I'm 5'7" 150lb and an xtra large is snug. I think they're fairly warm but not as much as some other reviewers said. I got some heated grips for the colder weather.

I just received these gloves and had the opportunity today to ride in both 80 degree weather and 50 degree weather. So keep in mind this review is based on a limited experience.
The glove fit almost perfect based on the measurement guide provided, minus the thumb. The thumb is a bit too long (~1/2 inch) for my hand to be an absolute perfect fit. The second issue with the thumb is the uncomfortable stitching on the inside nearest the index finger. The special material meant for use on touch screen devices makes for a collision of four individual cuts of material that initially makes the glove painful to wear as the material excess bulks up right at one spot - poking into the side of my thumb. But as the riding went on the gloves became less irritating. I'm assuming (hoping) it just needs breaking in.
Riding in 80 degree weather they felt a bit on the warm side but that was to be expected. It wasn't unbearable though and I wasn't sweating. I'm not sure if it was intended but there's noticeable airflow through the stitching between the fingers and the palm area when the fingers are spread and palm is facing into the wind, much less noticeable once the hand is balled up in a gripped fashion on the bars. Something to think about.
Riding in 50 degree weather (60-70 mph) the gloves held up to the cold fairly well. It was a very foggy, damp ride no less. Again, the only coolness that reached my hands was from the area of stitching between the palm area and the fingers. It wasn't a game changer for this scenario, I was comfortable, but I could imagine NY winter temperatures potentially becoming an issue.
The only other issue I have with the gloves is more or less cosmetic in nature. The glove has inconsistent twists in the fingers, where some are straight, some are also slightly tweaked at different angles. I can't imagine this is part of the design, instead a slight quality control thing. The left hand has a tweak to the thumb angle (turned slightly unnatural to my thumb away from my index) whereas the right hand has a more noticeable tweak to the index finger (~15-20 degrees turn towards my thumb from straight). These were the most severe of deviations, the rest were visually negligible. I've put the gloves on and off a few times, tried to manually set them straight on my hand - assuming i just put them on wrong, but they slowly creep back to their odd positions with use. But I consider it cosmetic because the feel and functionality, for me, is unaffected.
Despite my seemingly critical breakdown of the gloves, they are a steal. One of the better cooler weather gloves I've purchased, considering the price point. They are also extremely dexterous for a cool-weather glove design. I could reach right into my jeans pockets, grab my house keys, and unlock the door without any hangups. I'll definitely abuse these gloves for all their worth this fall.
