REV'IT! Women's Xena Gloves
Ladies glove with palm and pinky sliders!
I was in the market for a new pair of gloves to replace my three year old AlpineStars SP-2 gloves. I commute daily on my motorcycle and hit the mountain roads on the weekends. I searched high and low for a pair of women's gloves that had a palm slider without having to re-purchase the SP-2. I finally came across these gloves and decided to order a set.
I wore a medium AlpineStars, so I ordered a medium size in these gloves. When I received them, they felt a bit large on my hand so I exchanged for a small. As soon as I received them, the fit was much better and there was no break-in period required. The fingers are pre-curved, and none of the seams have bothered me so far. For me, the pinky and thumb on the gloves are a little too long, but not uncomfortably so. As I continue to wear the glove in, I have noticed that the fingers are all just slightly long for me, but it's not too noticeable when riding. Also, some of the threading has already started to fray a little bit. I have heard that Rev'It has great customer service though, so I'm not too concerned about it yet.
The main selling point for me was the slider on the palm and pinky finger, which is quite hard to come by for a women's glove. It's always nice to have that extra bit of protection just in case. The airflow through the gloves is mediocre. There is some perforation along the side of your fingers which provides some airflow at the right angle.
Overall, I'm really happy with my purchase of the Rev'It Xena gloves and I would recommend these gloves if you're looking for some gloves with a palm slider.

Gloves saved my hands.
Shortly after getting my new gloves in the mail, we left for a 3 week vacation (before ordering these gloves, I rode with wimpy mesh gloves). On day 2 of our vacation, I crashed my bike and went down hard. Thank goodness for ATGATT. My 2010 F650 GS was totaled, but I suffered only a bruised shoulder. The outside of the gloves got scraped up, but my hands are fine. Still using the gloves, even though they may not look new anymore, they are still fine!

Great women's fit glove!!
I was having the hardest time finding a glove that fit me well. I have short fingers and tried on multiple gloves that the fingers were way too long. No men's glove would fit me. I got the small and the fingers fit perfectly. The only complaint I have about women's gloves are lack of certain features. I was riding in the rain today and i was having a hard time seeing. Wiping off visor with glove and then onto leather pants didn't work out well. My husband has a squeegee on the finger of his glove. I am not aware of any lady fit gloves that have this. But all in all a great glove!

Full Xena set and LOVE IT!! Love Rev'It! gear! It's simply amazing.
I needed leathers for trackdays and spirited local riding, and spent a good six months hunting before the Xena set came out from Rev'It! Working with RevZilla was amazing, I had to send the jacket back once, the pants back twice, and the gloves back twice. I have slender wrists, slender hands, very long fingers, and I've never had a pair of gloves fit me better. Every other pair of gloves I have (AStars, ICON, Scorpion, Speed & Strength) and offer superb protection! The gloves are extremely well made. I've had compliments on them from guys that I ride with. RevIt! offers great quality gear, reasonable pricing for the materials involved, though I think their measurements may run a bit small. The gloves fit perfectly, all my fingers and my thumb. I still need a bit of break-in at the thumb-forefinger webbing area, but I've gotten these gloves semi broken in, and they are incredible. A bit more bulky than my A-Stars for sure, but I don't find any detriment to my ability to work any of my controls, my Scala G9 or my Hero3+.

I'm a big fan of REV'IT gear and this is my third pair of their gloves (the H20 Summits and an older shorty version) because I needed some for the track. I was not disappointed with these. The quality is high in terms of construction as well as material. The fit is consistent with my other gloves from REV'IT. I haven't found a better option out there that gives the features and quality of men's gear in a version for the ladies. As an added bonus, I really appreciate the fact that it is subtle, gender-neutral styling since I don't feel the need to wear pink and go all girl-power to scream that I'm a woman on a motorcycle.

Great for this road rider!
Revit is my go to company for gloves as I have thin hands with long fingers. Size chart is spot on and these fit me almost just-right. I wish the thumbs were a little longer though.
I’m a road rider and use these gloves for my every day late Spring thru Fall riding. Commuting to 200 miles days. I wanted a gauntlet that had palm protection and these fit the bill. I have confidence that these will do the job if the worst was to happen. They are pretty comfortable (except for my darn thumbs) after a little bit of break in. The liner took me a bit to get used to.

Not many to choose from, but these will do.
Trying to find women's gauntlet gloves with good protection and not break the bank was a difficult task. These were the best I could find. I was bummed to see there was no pinky/ring finger web protector on these like on some men's gloves. But I'm sure they'll be sufficient for track days. The fit is good but finger tips have a little more room than I'd like (I have average length fingers, so long-fingered riders might be happy).

Great protection for women
These gloves are more protective than my Dainese pro carbon gloves. They are alittle long in the fingers (I bought the small), but I have that problem with all gloves. They breathe well (85 degree muggy weather), and are very well made.
