REV'IT! Summit H2O Women's Gloves
Wanted to love them, but alas...
I bought these for a recent trip through Georgia and Florida and knew we would run into weather. Received the day before leaving (awesome!) and fit nicely immediately. Fit and finish are good and had good tactile quality -- I didn't feel the need to break these in a lot. The unfortunate part is that they were most definitely NOT waterproof -- I'm not sure if they were water resistent. After the first day of riding through about 50 miles worth of light/moderate rain, they began to feel suspiciously cool. A few minutes riding through heavier rainfall made it abundantly clear that they were not living up to their "waterproof" status. Did I get a non-H20 version by mistake? (yes, it has the H20 label on the index finger) By the time I got in, my hands were soaking wet and it took the gloves a couple of days to dry thoroughly. On the plus side, they still kept my hands warm even while wet, but I would have rather my hands kept dry to begin with.
Giving them a second chance, our return trip of 490 miles coming back up from Florida, ran into another weather system. Same thing -- hands became soaked after 15 minutes of decent rainfall. So sad.
So great in dry weather -- I'll even go so far as damp weather -- but definitely didn't hold up under heavier rainfall conditions.

Great for guys with skinny fingers
I'm a guy with skinny long fingers and the men's version of these gloves didn't fit me well. The XL women's version fits my medium sized hands quite well. After a couple of rides and breaking them in, I'm happy with the fit. Initially my finger tips were tender due to being constricted but now after breaking them in, everything is comfortable. The wrist strap is nice and can make the glove a snug fit. Not too happy with the wrist velcro strap; not sure if it's supposed to be this loose. Perhaps I have really skinny wrists.
Haven't yet tried these gloves in the rain, so can't comment on their rain proofing.

Ordered REV'IT! Women's Summit H2O Gloves for my girlfriend and she's really happy with them so far. They don't offer a ton of insulation, but do block the wind and offer great tactile feel. REV'IT! makes nice stuff, so no surprises here.

I really want to promote these gloves because they're amazing but I don't have the H2O version - I have the leather summit gloves which are basically the same, minus being waterproof.
I LOVE these gloves. I've had them for over 4 years and they are my every day riding gloves. They have awesome ventilation and almost no damage after wearing them almost daily. I will say they are the smallest bit long in the fingers, but it's difficult to find gloves that fit perfectly. They are extremely comfortable, easy to adjust, stylish...I can't say enough.
If you need a go-to set of gloves, I would definitely recommend the original Summit gloves or the H2O version. Rev'it makes great products and I've never regretted a purchase. Everything I've owned has been worth the money.

I bought these gloves for their waterproof feature, and my hands have stayed warm and dry through two hour-long downpours this week. The only slight disappointment is the pinky finger stitching on the medium is a tad too short for my hand, so my finger doesn't go all the way in. It makes a small difference in throttle grip, but I think this may improve as the gloves continue to break in.

I bought these for my GF to use during cool/cold weather. She had tiny hands, yet required a Large to fit over her heated liners. (Heated liner size is XS and they're a little big). On a recent ride in the rain the gloves kept her hands warm and dry.

A Rev'It Convert!
The Misses has been a Held gal for almost 2 decades. I think she might never go back. She wanted a 2nd pair of gloves for an upcoming trip that has a good potential for a lot of rain so she could switch off if needed.
She still has her Helds but this might be her new favorite.
