good glove with a flaw
I really like these gloves, but I have 2 gripes. Like one of the other reviewers has said, the pinky finger on these gloves can potentially be too small/tight. I looked at my right and left glove side by side (lining up the pinky sliders), and the left glove's pinky was about 3-4mm shorter. That may not sound like much, but it was enough to make my right glove fit perfectly and the left glove slightly uncomfortable when gripping the handle. I bought a size small since a wear a medium in Alpinestars, and the Rev'it RSRs fit perfectly aside from the variance in pinky size.
My other gripe is minor. I think these gloves would have greatly benefited in feel by having an extra layer of fabric on the control areas of the palm. Perhaps that is just because I am used to it on my Alpinestars gloves though.
Otherwise, great pair of gloves. If ordering these from Revzilla, consider buying 2 pairs of the same size to mitigate the chance of having a poorly sized pinky.

The glove... of love.
Size: follow the sizing chart, it won't lead you astray. Sizing chart is love, sizing chart is life.
Protection/features: for it's price, it seems great. The extra raised foam bits above your digits seem useless, but the knuckle, palm, and pinky-side protection appear more than adequate. Unfortunately the wrist doesn't offer much protection save for a layer of leather, but oh well, it's not supposed to be a high end race gauntlet (more like an entry level). Also, the opening for your hand is large, allowing you to tuck your sleeve inside the glove too, if that's how you roll.
Style: unfortunately, they didn't have an all black version. I'm not a fan of bold logos, and you will get a bit of a power ranger vibe, but at its price point this is probably the best protection you'll get.
Comfort: very comfy. Although, the extra protective leather/plastic on the pinky side causes your hand to hurt a bit if you make a fist, but that's easily avoidable.
Temp range: this glove is marketed as a mid spring to mid fall glove. However, that varies with where you live, so let me just say this: If it's 60 degrees plus, this glove should be fine. Between 50 and 60 you probably will need to flex your fingers every 15 minutes or so at highway speeds. If it's below 50, you should wear a latex lab glove underneath. I didn't specify what degrees because I'm assuming the majority of you are in the US and 60 degrees celcius/kelvin is stupid, but for clarity purposes let's just say it's the degrees... of FREEDOM.
I'm not sure why I titled the review the way I did, but let's just say... I want to make love to this glove. Oh yeah baby. Oh...!

I've only warn these gloves once so far but they do fit my hand well.. like a glove. They are pretty comfortable and I can tell they will wear nicely to become more so. Can't wait for the warmer weather to get back out there!

The usual great RevIt fit, finish and value
Been using these as my trackday glove. Well priced for the features, great looking, and comfy. The liner is really for comfort vs warmth, but I've used these from the low/mid 40's up to the 90's my hands haven't been too cold or too hot at eiether end of the temp spectrum. Really versatile in that respect (surprisingly so)!
They fit comfortably with good control feel.

- First pair of gloves I had, so I've lowsided in them dozens of times.
- The only reason I don't have these anymore is because they were stolen a year later (in good enough of a condition as well, after like 10 crashes).
- The plastic bit in the palm and on the sides saved the leather & my hands.
- So much airflow my hands froze in Florida's winter. Well, going 70 mph. I never had sweaty hands, though.
- Fit as expected. No annoying seams. The cuff could've been longer, but covers up well enough.

Great gloves for track days
I used to own the 2012 Alpinestars SP-1 gloves (L) but they were a little tight and stiff. I went to a local store and tried all the 2013 Astars models but none of them felt any good. They were either tight or too long on my fingers. After contacting the Revzilla guys I decided to purchase the size large Rev’it RSR gloves. I have ridden in them both on and off the track and I really like them. My only minor complaint is that while the size is perfect it’s very difficult to put them on when my hands are sweaty. Otherwise I would highly recommend them. They give a much better tactile feel than my Astars did and are also more comfy. Since I haven’t crashed in them I’m not sure about the protection but they seem to be good enough for track days. For serious racing you might want to get the SLR or the Jerez gloves instead.
