REV'IT! Phantom GTX Gloves
Just what I expected
This glove is waterproof Gore-Tex. It is thick, and hot. There is enough airflow to keep my hands dry from sweat in warmer weather, but they are hot. I only wear them when it's raining. They do keep my hands dry in wet weather and warm in colder weather. Well constructed and tough.

Sport touring gloves
Bought these gloves the day before I went out west for a sport touring expedition through NorCal. I bought these gloves with the intention of only needing them for rain and wasn't expecting to wear these gloves often during the trip. I ended up using them at least half of the time. I had also brought the rev'it dirt gloves with me, thinking that NorCal would be all sunshine and heat. I bought a size medium, same as my rev'it dirts- they fit similarly. I would say Rev'It gloves are a perfect fit for me across the board, but everyone is different.
The gloves were very comfy from the start- did 1300 miles over 72 hours and didn't have any discomfort. Protection wise- they will be alot better than the dirts, so I think they are pretty good.
Luckily, I didn't run into rain, but did have some snow/hail, severe winds, and 40 degree temperature through the Tioga pass. These held up wonderfully, although I wish I had something more insulated for the temperatures below 50. The gloves are a little too warm for anything above 70- which is when I would switch to my dirts. Perfect spring/fall glove.

Very nice glove if a bit pricey. I've only owned them two weeks, most of which was a wet trip of 3,000 miles, they didn't leak a drop. I measure 9-1/2" and originally ordered an XL, and could barely put them on. Exchanged that for XXL and still too small, and finally the 3XL fits. My hands aren't THAT big, and the XL and XXL seemed to be almost the same size, but the jump to 3XL was larger, making me think maybe the XXL was really an XL that was mislabelled, but no matter, the extra glove makes it easier to put on and off, and makes them a bit more comfortable to wear. I haven't tried them in warm weather yet, but they seemed comfortable over a wide temperature range (used them 38F up to 75F) with heated grips and a large fairing, they strike me as a solid 2-3 season glove.

Good construction. Long thumb? Small Gauntlet.
This fits similarly to my other RevIt waterproof gloves, in that it has a long thumb...or perhaps I have short thumbs. Also, the gauntlet opening is too small, which makes putting it over your jacket a pain.
Great solid construction and no leaks. No air flow, because it's waterproof that's expected. The squeegee wiper doesn't quite work like I expected it would but it's ok. The style and comfort is great.
I wouldn't really recommend this, mostly because of the small gauntlet opening, it just makes getting these on a pain, and then it's kind of short so my jacket slips out pretty frequently. I love RevIt usually, and perhaps they'll improve these aspects with some next rounds of their gloves.

My hand measures right at 9" and the L fit perfect. I wish all gloves fit like these. I've gone through many pairs of gloves over the last 30 years from motocross to roadracing to adventure riding. I've only put 500 dry miles, 50 of these miles offroad mountain backcountry on my GS1200ADV, on these gloves in low 40s to 70s temps. Probably would've been cold in the 40s without heated grips on low. They are already on my all time favorite list. Obviously can't speak about longevity or waterproofness yet but these gloves required very little break in and feel and appear pretty sturdy. They fit really well without any unnecessary bulk. Exactly what I was looking for in a glove. I bought these gloves for spring/fall and to break out for the anytime mountain rains that are always cold. These are a perfect fit for me.

I bought this item for a summer weight gore-tex touring glove. I have been caught in a few rainstorms wearing a lightweight cloth only glove and my hands got cold. I was looking for a higher level of protection without the heavy insulation of other gloves.
I like the hand protection these gloves provide not only from the weather, but the hard knuckle area and other features. I did try these gloves out on a 40 F weather ride. My hands were fine (I have heated grips) during the ride. I have not been out in rain yet. The gloves fit well, have a good feel and should stretch out a little.
The only drawback was the price. I think these are good gloves.

Great year-round gloves
These gloves are great. They can be worn all year round. They are great for about 1 hour riding (highway) in the 30's with heated grips and good in the mid 20's (also for about an hour). After that your fingers get cold - bear in mind that I perhaps tolerate cold hands better than average and I dress very warm, which helps keep your hands from getting cold -They are not warm enough in the 10's. I have not used them in summer yet but we have had days in the 60's and they are perfect for that. I believe they will be good in the 80's with low humidity, and too warm in the 80's with humidity.
Protection is very good and comfort is great. They also look fantastic. I have about 2000 miles on them and they just look like new. They will probably last a very long time.
All in all a very good year-round glove for climates that are not very extreme.

Nice Gloves for the rain
I got these gloves for when it rains in the Las VEgas area or on my road trips to Dallas or North Carolina. They are very nice. love the fit not to bulky. Just have to remember not to scratch your nose with your left hand because of the squeeze. You will do it only once.
