REV'IT! Jerez Gloves - Closeout
Very nice gloves
I've had these gloves for a couple of months now. I was looking for good protection for occasional track days as well as normal street riding.
These gloves do run about a size small. I normally wear L but chose an XL and they fit perfectly. These are very comfortable and have decent air flow.

Hands are worth the high cost.
Gloves appear to be of high quality. My hand is 9.5 inches around but I ended up choosing the 3X gloves after trying X lg and 2X. Yes, I ordered all 3 for fitting returning 2 without any issues at all. From the tip of my thumb to the tip of my middle finger is 9.5 inches as well. Middle finger is 3.75 inches long. The smaller gloves didn't allow me to open my hand or reach for the clutch without mashing the tips of my fingers and thumb. It caused numbness after a period of time. The 3X gloves have some room to spare in some of the fingers width wise but not length. The palms seem fine for me. The gloves are tight going on and off at the wrists. Airflow is good if your gloves are exposed to the wind. Gloves fit over my Olympia jacket sleeves. If you want protection and style I believe you should check these out. If you ever went down and left your skin embedded in the asphalt and mangled your hands/wrists you'll wish you had bought these to begin with.

Super comfortable and excellent protection
These gloves broke in perfectly after 3 rides. I can't say enough about the comfort of these gloves; they fit like a well made glove! Lots of protection where it's needed and air flow is very good. The cuff opening is a bit small for my jacket but not enough to impede the function of the wrist strap. I really like the extra protection around the wrist and the top of the hand. The sliders on the pinky finger and the tops of the other fingers look sturdy and protective. The only thing I would have liked to see is a larger palm slider and more protection on the palm below the thumb.

As always great quality. Protection is top of the line.

Best gloves I've owned for less than $300
In the past couple years I’ve overhauled a lot of my gear, including a few pair of decent name-brand gloves. Unfortunately I’ve made some poor choices I wish I could do over, but I’ve also found some great gear. The Jerez gloves I bought a few months ago fit perfectly in the latter category.
I don’t review every purchase I’ve made, especially if I don’t have a solid new perspective to add to what’s already been stated. But in this case I wanted to give credit to the REV’IT guys. I love these gloves. They have their minor drawbacks and I recognize that more than any other product, perhaps with the exception of helmets, sizing and fit weighs heavily on individuals’ experience with gloves (I know plenty of guys that swear off a particular glove simply because they feel the sizing chart was off by a centimeter and they bought the wrong size. I’ve been there too and it’s frustrating, but I think it’s worth it to take a few days to order the next size up/down and then evaluate the glove.). If you find these to be a good fit for you, they are excellent gloves.
My issues are minor and likely will be addressed in upcoming versions of these gloves.
The cuff system can by slightly cumbersome for the street. The three-step system takes a short bit of practice before getting the gloves on/off quickly. And don’t forget to close the cuff when you take them off. There is a lot of velcro involved and if, like me, you stuff your gloves in your helmet when you stop for a bite to eat, you’ll find your gloves forever wreaking havoc on your helmet liner if you leave any of that velcro exposed. The cuff also doesn’t play perfectly with heavy leather jacket sleeves. Meaning the cuff closes tight so there isn’t a ton of room in the gauntlet portion of the glove to accommodate the sleeve around the wrist – it works, but it’s a tight fit and you’ll have to fiddle with it for about 5 extra seconds to make sure the jacket sleeve is tucked in; lighter jackets have no issues. Bottom line: I’m interested in seeing if future designs can leverage this very good cuff approach, but make it a bit more convenient. However, these issues are workable and I can’t blame the REV’IT guys for trying to make a glove with very few compromises.
The design is very good, but perhaps a little dated. I had a buddy comment, “I thought you got new gloves” just after I purchased these. Not what you want to hear right after dropping money on these gloves. But again, I expect this will be addressed in the future.
I think they are worth the price, but I’d probably consider them average, but not great value. At $30-50 less these would be a terrific deal. You’ll get what you pay for, but these aren’t cheap gloves and I think some of the other manufacturers’ offerings have started to offer a bit more technology for a similar price point.
Overall excellent gloves and a 5 star rating even with the pricing. Well built, very comfortable, cool enough, padded in the right places and flexible in the places you need it, awesome fit. Some great new gloves coming into the market, but for a full protection street glove under $300 I’ve never had any better than these.

I normally wear a large, but stepped down because I wanted a a tighter fit for the track. These will definitely require more break-in, and are still pretty hard to get on and off. The gauntlet is a little shorter than other comparable models, and has a more narrow opening. I would also like to see a slightly longer strep to seal it around the outside of my suit/jacket. All of that said, they have great protection and are starting to loosen up. I great get tactile feedback, unlike many of the other gloves I own. They also fit well along the knuckles, so you don't feel the plastic cup that's protecting them. I also like the additional hard protection along the outside of the wrist. They were a little more money than I had intended to spend, but if you compare features to lower-priced alternatives you begin to see that it's probably worth it.

Ordered both a Medium and a Large in the Jerez gloves in order to see which would fit best on my moderately short-fingered hands.
The Medium turned out to be just a bit too small as the hard parts on the top side of the fingers caused some discomfort.
The Large is just a little on the roomy side. But all in all the fit is very comfortable and similar to my Phantom GTX gloves.
The design, style and quality of the gloves is very high.
I haven't had a chance to ride in the gloves yet but I'm certain they'll meet my expectations based upon my past experience with Rev'It products.
