REV'IT! Women's Chevron Gloves
This is the third pair of REV'It gloves I bought. First two pairs (one for my wife and one for me -- think the were fly gloves) worked fine for two seasons now. I bought Chevron for my wife, because they look great, vent great and have considerably more protection than Fly gloves. Unfortunately they started falling apart at the seams after third use, and I'm talking here about three short rides only. Absolutely unacceptable. I noticed another reviewer complained about gloves falling apart, but I unfortunately disregarded that, hoping that he just had bad luck.

good protection and stylish
I'm a new rider, so I don't have a lot of experience with equipment yet. I really like that these are made for women because they fit me. They are very stylish and I feel comforted by the amount of protection that they provide, without feeling that it gets in my way. I ordered the XL because my hand measured 7.75" and the video said to order up in that case. They feel slightly big but maybe the large would have been too small. I love these gloves.

These are great, at first when I received them I thought they may be a little on the small side but thought that it would probably change once they were broken in. After the first few times of riding with them, I find myself hoping for warm weather so I can wear them. I was unsure about the length above the wrist since I'm used to shorter gloves but it seems to be growing on me.

My girl likes them
I think they could have more protection built into them, but I'm used to guys gloves, which seem to be superior in that department. I guess girls don't crash...? jk, but they are very nice looking and the protection isn't completely missing, I just think it could be better.

Very comfortable summer gloves
I was looking for a summer glove that had great protection. I am very happy with the quality and look of these Revit gloves.
I have so many pairs of other brands of gloves and I could never find something that was comfortable for longer rides. The Chevron glove is very comfortable and fits nicely under my jacket sleeve.
I find that Revit products fit small so I recommend buying a size larger than you normally do. Usually I would fit a Large women's glove in other brands (or men's small), but I bought an X-large for the Revit glove and it fits perfectly.

Good, well-considered glove
I was looking for a summer glove with decent protection features to replace my worn out pair. These Rev-It women’s chevron gloves are pretty nice.
+nice protection features (nice thick leather pad on the heel of the hand, armor) (why do women’s gloves usually have second rate protection features compared to men’s gloves? These at least seem on par)
+better fit around my hand than most small or xs men’s gloves. The wrist closure in particular actually closes small enough to properly secure the glove.
+good feel on the throttle. The glove is curved nicely so it doesn’t bunch up uncomfortably when gripping the throttle
+fairly comfortable. Nothing on the inside of the glove rubs my hand uncomfortably. Not as nice as a more premium glove, but not bad (and I'm not willing to shell out for something more expensive). Vents well for leather. Ridden into the 90’s so far, and the airflow is pretty decent. I really like the nylon/mesh or whatever it is between the fingers, that really flows a lot of air and feels good on a hot day.
+I like the design and looks
-somewhat random finger lengths. Not consistent between the two gloves. Some fingers fit great, others are way too long (its not my hand that’s the problem)
-some of the seams and construction look sketchy, sloppy. Probably should have better build quality for the price. This may just be cosmetic, if they hold up, this won’t matter to me.
-I like leather on the palm side, but I really wanted a glove with more mesh, non-leather on the top side of the hand. The perforated leather is nice, but they are still hotter than my previous gloves (which I can’t find anymore, and honestly aren’t as nice as these anyway). Cooler gloves all offer less protection, so this was the best compromise I found.
Only had these for a month, so not sure yet about durability, and I haven’t worn in the rain yet, so the verdict is still out there. I’ve never bought a women’s specific glove before. There are definitely a lot more choices available compared to 8 years ago when I bought my last pair (which were completely falling apart at this point). I’m not convinced my hands are really that different than an xs guys hands, but aside from some finger length issues, these gloves really do fit a lot better than any others I’ve tried on.
I tried on a lot of gloves before buying these, which are the most comfortable with the best protection I could find. So yes, I like and recommend them.
