River Road Resistance Gloves
Close, but not quite
As a new rider, I've already spent quite a bit of coin getting set up with gear and was hoping to find a solid pair of winter gloves that fit my budget.
I watched the video review of these gloves and they seemed to be what I was looking for.
When the first shipment was declared "damaged and undeliverable" by UPS, I should have seen that as a bad omen.
Revzilla customer support was excellent and shipped me another pair while they worked out the situation with UPS.
When the gloves arrived, the seam on the curve of the palm (between the thumb and pointer finger) wasn't fully sewn - my hand was exposed through the hole. (Not very helpful for winter gloves.)
Again, Revzilla customer support went above and beyond and shipped me another pair.
The third pair arrived yesterday. And while the hole in the seam wasn't quite there, I am certain that after one day of riding, I'd be patching them up with gaffers tape.
I decided not to go through the hassle. I also decided that I might not be able to find a decent winter glove at this price point.
Yet again, Revzilla accepted my return and I decided to upgrade my budget and purchase a more popular glove with a higher volume of reviews by the Revzilla community.
I never went for a ride with the gloves, so I can't comment properly on Air Flow.

not a bad glove
got them for cold weather riding and they do quiet well keeping my hands warm and the knuckle armor. i normally wear a size large and i bought them in a size large and it fits a little snug and i wish i got a size extra large but really for the money they are quiet good.

Good, but use it very specific riding conditions
For the money, these gloves are amazing for really cold-weather riding. However, when it isn't cold, you'll find yourself wanting to use any pair of gloves other than these ones.

Good for cool weather, but not below 50 F
These gloves look and feel great, but my fingers started getting very cold at 40 F from highway speeds, even while wearing a silk liner. But then again these are my first pair of cold weather gloves so I have no basis to compare to other products.
I would recommend unless you'll be doing a lot of riding below 50 F for any extended period of time.

For Cold Weather Riding
This glove is thicker than I originally thought. It provides really good cold-weather riding protection, but it has a fair amount of insulation, so for moderate temperatures, I'm not ready to give up the feel and default back to my leather gauntlets. I would ride with this pair of gloves when the weather drops below 8ºC. (I don't have heated gear.)
