REV'IT! Hybrid WSP Gloves
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.

Perfect Fall to Mild Winter Glove
I originally purchased the Hybrid WSP Gloves out of necessity while on a long distance trip this fall. The weather changed drastically and my summer gloves were leaving my fingers nearly useless.
The Rev'it gloves are perfect for blocking out the cold in temperatures above forty degrees. Below that you will have some numb fingers. Nothing that is unbearable, but slightly uncomfortable. Anything below forty is doable but only for shorter stretches.
I found these glove to be great for long highway stretches as they do a fantastic job of cutting out the windchill factor with their "windproof technology". Light rain is not a factor, but in heavy downpours expect to get a little damp.
In the end I would highly recommend these gloves to anyone looking for a light weight, around town, fall tempered glove.

These gloves are exactly what I was looking for. They block the wind and work perfect in mild weather (above 45 degrees). . Rode once in cold weather (about 40 degrees), and I started to feel the cold in my fingers a bit. But wasn't uncomfortable or freezing.
Revzilla shipped much quicker than I expected. Great company to order from.

Great Budget Cool Weather Gloves
Pretty good cool weather glove. Aces at 40-70f temperatures, with or without wind. Below that, you're feeling the wind pretty harshly. That is, no wind actually seeps into the gloves, but the wind will chill the exterior, and that chill will find its way to your hands. If you have handguards that block the wind, then you'll be fine. I can imagine that heated grips would also remedy this, and make these gloves great for lower temperatures. But by themselves, not so much.
The protection seems solid, and though I prefer more protection in the palm, what is there is adequate. The reinforced knuckle is strong and light, and a nice touch.
I haven't had any experience with these in the rain, but no where are they touted to be good rain gloves. I imagine they get quite soaked quite quickly.
Over all, I would suggest these gloves at a budget, because they perform as intended with no surprises. And REV'IT gear always looks good.

Stops the wind.
Good fall gloves. Not good for anything under 30 degrees at 65mph.
