REV'IT! Summit H2O Gloves
Good gloves for the price
I've worn these gloves daily for the last six months and they've worked out pretty well. I live in north Florida, so it gets quite hot (multiple 100+ days this last summer). I anticipated needing to switch out at some point for something cooler, but these gloves did fine by me. The waterproofing works quite well (again, north Florida - it rains nearly every day) and the visor wiper serves its purpose without any major complaint. My only niggle is in the fit of the liner of one of the gloves - it seems to come out of place quite easily. I've had to shove the liner fingers back into the fingers of the glove many times, and it is not a terribly simple thing to do. I don't know if this is a manufacturing defect or what, but it is annoying, especially if it happens mid-ride.
All things together, I'd recommend these gloves for cool-warm weather riders.

Great glove even for warmer months
I've worn this glove for 1500 miles this summer and it's awesome! 90 degrees all the way down to 45 with no issue, they block all of the wind and have been pretty good through water even though the finger grips can still be slightly slippery when wet. I've also noticed a seam in the palm that can get slightly uncomfortable after long rides with lots of stops when a passenger that you have to hold up as they lean on you. I just re-adjust my grip and they're fine again. Other than that, I'd definitely recommend them and have multiple times!

Summits run small
Good gloves, well made and nicely finished. Revzilla's video reviews are great but on this one I've got to disagree with Anthony on the fit. I wear a size large Icon glove but these are more Euro than US fit. I ordered large but it was too small. XL fits me perfect, if your concerned about being in between sizes don't be. The XL isn't a bunch bigger than large, just slightly and perfect for me

Small, so get at least one size up
I ordered these gloves because they look great, and fit the bill for my needs...but they are cut super small. I ended up giving my pair to a friend because the fingers were about .5" - .75" too short for my hands. So, my friend is happy with them. I need to order a new pair and get them much larger.
I'm 6'1" 188lbs. These fit my friend who is 5'8" 160" (my guess). For me XL fit like trying to put on a lady's XL.
Hope this helps!

Excellently designed cool "not cold" weather glove w/ good feel & protection.
This type of glove by far was the most challenging to research and select. I was looking for a glove that would give me an adequate amount of warmth and protection from the cooler climates in temperature ranges between high 40's to low 60's.
I live in Western Washington and typically don't have to contend with bitter cold temperatures (just rain) as well as don't make a habit of riding in winter months.
With invaluable assistance from the "The Geek Squad" coupled with my research, I selected the H2O and could not be happier. It addresses my two essential needs for a cool weather glove while still attaining very good feel with the controls, which is the biggest obstacle in this type of glove.
The fit, style, construction, protection and feel is top notch consistent with my experience with Rev' It products by and large. It's the best cool weather glove I have ever owned and the fit is equally comfortable as it is functional. It looks great and the cuff is versatile enough to fit with my riding jackets.
I measured 8.5 and ordered a large and the fit was right on.
If you are a winter or cold weather rider defined as slightly below 50 F for extended periods of time this may not be the glove for you without the assistance of heated grips.
For moderately cool temperatures as I have earlier referenced this glove meets if not exceeds my expectations and would highly recommend it as a "have your cake and eat it too" glove that provides good feel and protection from cooler temperatures and rain.

Outstanding summer glove. Nice fit and my hands don't get sweaty.

This product has great protection and decent weather protection.
Here are my thoughts on the gloves:
I am normally a size large but these are a bit tight (I wish I had gone up a size).
They started out waterproof but after three years they now get wet. I am going to treat them with waterproofing stuff (I find that all WP clothes/boots eventually get wet and needs treated).
I find these are best used on cold days as they are warm and keep the wind out. I find that they are not good summer gloves as they are too warm.
In the end if they were an XL, I would like them better and would buy this glove again if needed.

Overall a good product with a few small issues.
So first, I am an American size large, with wider hands. This product fits good, did take a little breaking in. I am in Alaska and ride from 40F - 80F, after about 60F these gloves get hot..like sweaty hands hot..but at 40F they are perfect (we have colder summers)
1. Great protection with all the skid plates and padded areas.
2. The gauntlets are great for tucking a jacket into.
3. The goat leather is really soft and strech/flex well.
4. No water issues, even in really heavy rain.
1. They get to hot after 60F.
2. In between where the fingers meet there is a little more padding then I prefer and its a very slight discomfort. Nothing I can't ignore.
Overall I would recommend.
