Great 3 season glove
Put about 200 hundred miles on a pair of these gloves and so far they have been great. The materials and craftsmanship scream quality. The gore-tex x-trafit is no joke, it works as advertised. I haven't had them out in the rain yet, but in hot weather sweat is no problem. The gore-tex deals with the sweat and lets it escape. I have had them out in 40 degree weather and that is probably the lowest temp that they can handle but they can do 80-85 degrees all day with no problems. Even though it does not have a full gauntlet, I really appreciate the added protection + super fabric on the outside of the wrist. It should help in the event of a lowside. Overall great glove and I strongly recommend to any dual sport/adventure and commuter rider.

I live in Hawaii (don't be jealous) and have to ride in the rain a lot. I got these because I was tired of having my hands get soaked in my leather gloves. These gloves fit nicely, are very sharp looking, and they amazingly match my Shoei helmet (not intended!). Listen to the review...I had to change size a little. I wear a large in gloves and ordered a 10...they fit perfectly. A little snug at first, but then they have now molded well to my hands. I love these things. They don't give any air flow, but your hands do vent out (Gore-tex and all). Highly recommend if you are in a climate that is hot and where it rains a lot!

This represents a new price range purchase for me when it comes to gloves but having ridden a few seasons with a variety of gloves, I am glad I made the investment, especially for the goretex and the protective properties but the comfort and "feel" are proving themselves as well.
The fit was a little tight causing a bit of concern when first put on but now that I've put about 500 miles on the gloves they fit perfectly. I went with the sizing chart. I have long fingers and the measurements worked out to where it "fits like a glove" The leather has softened and there is good flex.
I ride in almost all weather. I've only had them since late March but there has been a good range of temperatures here in NJ that show the versatility of this glove. Very good wind insulation too. I will be interested to see how cold the hands get when the gloves are wet.

The fit is so good I have to double check that I'm wearing them!
I'm a 6' 187lbs regular build guy. Arms a bit longer than average for my height.
I bought a size 10. I was originally shooting for a 9, but I fortunately had the chance to actually try a pair before I bought, and the 9, while it fit, was to snug.
Haven't ridden in them yet, so can't really comment on them in that regard. Quality craftsmanship tho and they're really comfortable!
I get the pinky-numbness, but I'm sure that'll go away when I break them in.

Perfect glove in everything but the abrasive velcro
FIRST: I do not see myself shopping for riding stuff elsewhere anymore. Note: I live in Brazil… Revzilla, you were perfect!
SIZING was my main concern, so let’s feedback: After long considering all sizing reviews, from Revzilla and its Customers, and making several my-hand measurements, I decided for a size 10 and it fitted as it should: like a glove! I found out my left and right hands are different. Also, measuring my hand not touching anything or over the table (like holding the motorcycle grip) makes difference (from 1 to 5%). DATA: Over the table: RH 241mm; LH 225mm (imperial: 9 ½”; 8 7/8”). Hand free: RH 229mm; LH 222mm (imperial: 9”; 8 ¾”). MY DECISION: Rukka Vauhti Goretex SIZE 10.
Rukka Vauhti - WHAT A GLOVE! Stylish and toughly ready for the bad to come. I feel like been safer. Very good quality impression and protections (not tested, TKS God). Under rain it works just the same as in dry weather. I took the white color and it looks great. It is pricy, but it’s a good quality purchase. I’m counting it will last for years. Velcro could be non abrasive so it won’t ruin the jacket and helmet when I carry the gloves around stored inside... And the pulling tip could be bigger, so it would be easier to open/ close with gloves! The glove thickness does affect the sensitivity of motorcycle controls but nothing prohibitive.
I ride a 100cc Honda Lead Scooter in heavy city traffic the whole week (São Paulo, Brazil), and, when I’m lucky, I ride a BMW GS F800 on the weekend! :-). So I selected 2 gloves, one light and one with more protection. It’s a hot weather here, 25 to 36oC (77 to 98F), aggravated by the low speeds :-( … so ventilation is a MUST! I selected a Rukka Vauhti Goretex (size10) for the grown up bike, and a RevIT Sand Pro (size L) for the day by day junior rides… I am very happy. I got exactly what I wanted with both.
I was not used to wear gloves at all. It’s just too hot… The RevIT Sand Pro is ok below 30oC (86F), Rukka Vauhti I can only use below 25 oC (77F). RevIT Sand Pro sensitivity is a lot better, it’s like wearing nothing, but Rukka Vauhti feels safer and is ok to feel the bike controls. Riding in a he11 of a traffic, I always keep a stand-by-finger-on-the-horn, so glove flexibility is a must! Both gloves do the job.

Great gloves with waterproof gortex lining
Gloves fit fantastic and are very well made. I would buy them again.

I was looking for comfortable mid-season gloves and I must say I have found exactly what I was looking for.
They are light, waterproof and allow me to feel nimble while operating the bike or looking for keys or earbuds in my pockets.
As mentioned by the others, the only drawback is their lack of air flow but riding close to 500 miles over 9 hours by 80 F this weekend was not really an issue.
I do not know yet how they will behave when the temperature will drop to 50 or 40 F.
If a $189 price is acceptable for you, this pair of gloves is definitely a must have.
