REV'IT! Summit H2O Gloves
After 2 pairs I can conclusively say they are NOT waterproof!
I cant believe that Revzilla put these gloves in their top waterproof picks... SERIOUSLY? What were you thinking? Having worn them both in and out of the jacket sleeves, coating them with Nikwax one thing is consistent. These gloves are not waterproof and they take forever to dry out. Think dish sponge. They are water magnets. The fit was incredible and I really did not want to get rid of them but I needed a waterproof glove... Finally ended up with the GoreTex Roadstar GTX.

Great 3 season glove - Not the best water proofing
I purchased these for longer trips because I a wanted cuff to go over my jacket. Around town I wear the Revit Bomber. Very comfortable and with my heated grips I can probably get 4 seaons out of these. Only downside is the water proofing isn't that great. After about an hour in heavy rain they started to feel wet. I added a pair of aerostitch over gloves to my kit for serious rain

Great well protected glove!
The summit h20 is a great glove for the money which is mainly why I purchased it, the glove feels extremely well built and tough. The protection is more than adequate I especially like the side of Palm and pinky sliders, they look like they'd hold up great in a get off (hopefully I'll never truly find out.) my hand stays warm in temps above 75f but never gets "Hot" which tells me it's breaths pretty well and is comfortable, fit is spot on to the size chart and it fits like....well... A Glove! And as always revzillas fast shipping and great service were spot on! Thanks again!

Nice summer glove with good airflow and also works on the iPhone!
Glove fits very well...very hard for me to find gloves that work. I have wide hands and short fingers, but this glove fits my hand great! I wear a large.

Good successor to the Summit-my favorite fitting glove
I got 10,000 miles and about 2 years of hard riding on my Summit Gloves-the finger holes on the side started to stretch and the palms grew holes. I just wore them out.
I want to be able to wear Held Gloves but they just make my hands cramp so I go back to the Rev'it who seem to make gloves custom for me.
I find these very comfortable and pick up a dime from the countertop sensitive. They don't cramp my hands and I feel totally protected.
I asked the salesperson here what glove would you rather fall off you bike at 100mph wearing these or Held Steves. He said Helds-most likely both would give good protection. The little details of the palm and pinky sliders show some good design.
I like being water proof. I have seen a bunch of reviews that say neigh. They suck in the rain. I grabbed a handful of mink oil and rubbed my hands together for a while working that goo in the leather. Over that I sprayed silicone water proofing. Now total dry in Florida afternoon frog drowning rain showers (daily) Note-my bike has hand guards so I don't get full water blasting. Still have to say DRY as a bone.
Good advice to put your sleeves over your gauntlets in the rain.
I have about 1000 miles on these now and I guess I'm good for another 9000. They are the most comfortable gloves I have ever worn. If the Held Steves were this comfortable I would have gotten them as I know they are built better with the Kanga-roo leather and all.

Perfect Glove for me
Great fit, solid protection, and love that they're waterproof. My favorite part is the velcro wrist strap- an added safety feature to make sure they stay on your hands when the going gets dicey.

Very nice gloves but NOT true waterproof
Pretty good gloves but a little bulky on the touch. Definetely NOT waterproof. In heavy rain my hands got soaked, did not freeze thanks to the BMW heated grips. But they're stylish, comfortable (a little stretched in my right thumb but I think it's because I do only wear them in rain weather), nice protection zones and a very cool wiper in the left index finger. Only complain so far is that they are not true waterproof. Will try to use the NikWax Glove Proof.
