REV'IT! Hybrid WSP Gloves
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.

Never thought a glove could be so good
I'm so happy I purchased these gloves. The are the most comfortable pair I have every purchased. It's like Rev'It used my hand as the mold.
Right now, mornings in my area are in the 40s and my commute home in the 70s. The gloves keep my warm in the morning, and are not too hot for the ride home. I don't know how they do it but I love them. Not sure how they will be in the middle of summer but I'm going to want to wear this pair year round if I can.
Glad I wear the same size glove as Anthony, I'll always know what size to buy.
Thanks Rev'It and Revzilla

my go-to glove
Favorite of my glove options. Comfortable, easy to wear, and warm. Not freezing temps warm, but chilly mornings warm. Windstopper fabric does a great job cutting wind chill. Not so waterproof, though. But, that's not what I bought them for.
Styling is also subtle, and not so obviously a motorcycle glove. I occasionally wear them off the bike when I need a warm glove.
Durability: I ride through the winter, and use these gloves almost exclusively in the winter. Chilly mornings other seasons. Still in great shape after a year. No pulling seams or split fabric.

Does what its made for
Simple gloves, very comfortable. Bought them for the winter and cold and they do an excellent job! Nothing fancy so you can keep them on even when not on the bike.

Great glove for the price
This is the perfect mild winter glove - high 30's to 40 degrees and above. Short rides in colder temps would probably be okay as well, but I don't really need to worry about that where I live. They do exactly what I purchased them for - keep my hands warm on my relatively short commute to and from work in temps just cold enough to see my breathe.
They seem to run a tad small in terms of the snugness around the fingers, but length is pretty true. This is my first pair of gloves that don't have any type of fit adjustment for the wrists - which I thought my be an issue - but so far so good.
I did ding one star on style simply because they only have all black and no other colors/designs to choose from. Obviously this does not impact the effectiveness of the glove or its overall quality.
Overall, this is a great glove for the price.

Good gloves, but a few gripes
I bought these gloves for my commute (12 miles 1 way), and they are plenty comfortable. The knuckle protection is adequate, but be warned... These are definitely spring/fall gloves for us New Englanders. Anything below 40 F and you will feel it. Behind a fairing, these would be absolutely perfect commuter gloves. The grip and control I have in them is on par with dirt riding gloves, and they fit true to size. More equatorial climates can use these gloves in their winters, but 30+ mph in 40 F weather was a bit of work. Pair these with glove liners, like i did, and you'll be fine for those shorter jaunts.
