REV'IT! Roadstar GTX Gloves
Rev'it just knows how to make great gear!
I really like the Rev'it Roadstars. They are waterproof as advertised. Once I seal the cuff of my jacket over the gauntlet of these gloves, there is no way water is getting in, no matter how hard it rains. They are a good glove for cooler temperatures as well. When it is really hot, you'll want a different glove, but these are not really meant to be hot weather gear. They are breathable, but not like mesh, so don't expect them to be.
The gloves have great feel on the controls, seem like they have enough protective features, and are comfortable to wear. The slider on the palm side does take a little getting used to.
I've had 2 other pairs of Rev'it gloves, and they always run small. These were no exception, I had to return the first pair and exchange for a larger size. Revzilla's return policy is great. Once I got the right size I was exceptionally happy with the snug fit and feel of the glove.
Like the other pairs of Rev'it gloves I've owned, these are high-end, high quality gloves.

These gloves are perfect for a cool day when rain is expected. The fit is perfect - nice curved fingers for a comfortable grip - but they do fit small. I had to return my usual XL size for a XXL. They are not lined, but are rather thick so they are not the gloves I go for on hot days. Below 75 degrees and down to the 40s with heated grips: Perfect.

hands do stay dry
glove fits nicely, medium cuff stays beneath airman sleeves just as i would have thought. been in some pretty good rains and have not felt any moisture on hands. gortex jacket liner is nice in preventing water from running in to glove opening.super comfortable, good dexterity. must say i was a shade hesitant because revit does not give these things away, but am pleased to have decided spending that kind of change on a quality piece of equipment. when the weather is warm these babys are hot [ comute] but the hwy a different story.

Well made gloves that are comfortable, waterproof and designed to stay on in the event of a crash. Not a lot of airflow in them but very well made.

Waterproof. Believe it.
I spend thousands of dollars a year carefully buying stuff online based on user reviews. I have a confession to make... I am a review free-loader. I have never taken the time to write one myself. However, this particular glove was such a successful purchase that I felt guilty not sharing my discovery.
I always said there was no such thing as a water proof glove, but I was hopeful that maybe THIS year someone would have come up with one. Well, Rev It has done it.
Rode for two days in heavy rain. My hands were dry. Period. A little bit of moisture as a result of taking the glove off and putting it back on... tough to avoid that... but the glove itself did its job.
For those of you who haven't figured this out yet... when you put on your rainsuit, you MUST put the rainsuit sleeve OVER your glove cuff to prevent water from dripping into the glove.
This glove also isn't too hot. It was in the low 80's and I was fine. Warmer temps than that would be problematic though.
The only other issue is that the glove definitely runs small. If you are hesitant to order an extra large based on the sizing, don't be afraid... you need the XL.
Waterproof glove problem solved. Believe it.

Purchased a pair of these for a long weekend trip where we were expecting rain. This is my 3rd pair of rev'it! gloves, and I'm a big fan. I also have Rev'It! rain pants and a textile summer jacket, all great products. Unfortunately, the rain forecast was true and we spent 1 hour in drizzle and 1 hour in heavy downpour at about 65 degrees. My expectation was that my hands would be completely dry. About 30 minutes into the downpour, my hands got cold. When I took the gloves off, both hands were wet. If this was simply a defect, I wouldn't expect that to be true for both hands. I'm very disappointed in this product given the cost and my experience with other Rev'It products overall. I plan to return for a comparable pair from another brand. Not recommended if you ever plan to ride in the rain.

The quality of these gloves are great, well made. have only ridden in a slight rain so cannot honestly comment on the waterproofing, however I have other Gortex gear and it is great, My hand measured at 91/2" so I ordered the x-large and it is a bit tight, but still comfortable, hope comfort will increase as they break in more. so if your hands are any larger than the 1/2 size I would recommend the next size up on the sizing chart. and the cuff will definitely NOT fit over my Rev-it jacket, but fits under the jacket nicely. definately would recommend

Not worth the asking price.
The protection on the fingers is quite low from the middle of the finger on to the end.
