REV'IT! Summit H2O Gloves
Leak City! Pig skin! hina Fraud!
4X gloves-a little small at first but leather stretches. Road in a normal Seattle Rain 1st time out, finger tips and Rt. thumb leaked. For that expensive I expect ARIZONA-dry, nothing less. Listed as goat skin--wrong! It has goat and Pig skin. Goats&sheep have lots of hair, many, many hair follicles. Pigs have far apart hair follicles, easily recognizable by distinct wrinkles that run in regular patterns between follicles.
More made in China Fraud!

Keeps me warm in the weird PA winter weather
I got these because I have super ventilated summer gloves and they let yoo much air in if the temperature is below even 50. These gloves not only kept me warm and are mostly windproof, they make my hands somewhat sweat. I wore them the other day and it was 60 degrees and they didn't sweat too much.

Excellent versatile gloves at a great price
First pair of multi-season gloves for me. I selected these after a lot of research and reading many of the rider reviews. They suited my needs well for a 3-season option to complement my summer riding gloves. After a few months of riding I find them to be very well made and relatively comfortable however they are still a little stiff. I imagine this will improve after logging some more miles. They can get a bit warm in higher temps. Overall they have exceeded my expectations at their price point.

Keeps hands dry, great quality, decent air flow but low insulation to cold
I have ridden more than 3 times in the rain, and can say that the gloves keep your hands dry (as long as your hands are not already wet when you put them on xD). Visor wiper is a great functionality piece. I have also ridden in the hot weather (70-90F) for 30mins at a time and these offer decent air flow, with limited sweatiness of the hands.
Cold weather/wind protection is lackluster, my hands can go numb after riding in 50F weather for >30 mins and that is my only complaint. I got them hoping they would keep my hands warm, however, these, are very good all-weather gloves. Fitment is snug and doesn't bunch up when twisting throttle. Throttle feedback is decent through the gloves, and the fingers are flexible when operating levers. Lastly, the velcro is solid and doesnt open or curl up even when putting on a backpack or reaching into your pockets. I have had these for about 3 months, put high milage on them, and have not crashed (praise God!) but can still say they are quality gloves and are durable in multiple riding applications.

A very good glove with good comfort and style. Like some other reviewers have said, these gloves will not keep you warm under 40 degrees.

Maybe I expected too much?
I think this is a good glove. The amount of protection for the price is really good; however, as a biker on a budget I was lured by the siren song of a glove that could stretch into four seasons. My area of the world was even called out in the video as a place it could work!
Starting with fit. I originally got the size small as I was right on the cusp of small and medium. The small felt fine in my house but as soon as I tried to ride it was noticeably painful in the pinky finger when I tried to shift of break. It was like the little slider was digging into me. I sized up to a medium and it fit my fingers better but the palm is a little baggy. I probably should have just got a different product or tried to lady's version but I didn't. This turned out to be a small benefit.
The biggest disappointment for me is that this is no where near a four season glove. I'm not even sure where it fits. I'd say it gets too hot after outside temps are over 80F. Even my 15-20 min commute they were too hot by late spring. They're also too thin to give me much warmth in the winter. I find on the same commute with temps in the 40s that my fingers are very cold when I get home and painfully numb after 45 min of city driving let alone highway. This is where the bagginess comes in. I got some glove liners at an outdoors store headquartered in Seattle that help though I'll probably need something heated to make these truly usable in the winter. For me these are best in fall and spring and not much else. I'll need new summer gloves this year and heated or new gloves next winter.
I'm not sure why people have a problem with these in the rain. I've had zero issues with them worn over my jacket. They seem waterproof to me. Absolutely no complaints in that department.
They look good too. My partner refers to them as my "batman" gloves.
Overall, I use them and want to love them but I consistently find myself disappointed. Lesson learned. There is no one size fits all product that can save me money.

Great fit but not really waterproof
I've had these for a couple winters now, and I thought they'd be great for California Bay Area winter riding. They fit well, feel great on my hands, and have just the right insulation for 45-65*F riding. However, everytime I ride in the rain, my hands get soaked. I don't mean clammy, I mean wet. Granted, my rides are 2-3 hours. The gloves are probably fine for 30 minutes in the rain, but they don't cut it for longer rides. They did keep me warm, even when wet.
Now, I've moved to Seattle. My first ride in the high 30's-low 40's was cut short because my fingers were getting too cold to comfortably work the controls. Now, I'm moving on to some Gore-Tex full winter gloves. I'll keep the old Rev'Its for Seattle "summer".

Fit is pretty standard. You can trust the size chart. They are good looking and well made. The gloves do not have any breathability or much insulation, so the temperature range is limited: Over 70 degrees I prefer meshed gloves. Over 90 degrees these will get soaked with your sweat. Below 40 degrees they are not really warm enough - even with heated grips. You will feel it in your fingertips.
