I bought these gloves based on the Revzilla demo vid. But I think I should have researched some more. These gloves are not very comfortable. They have a weird crease in the leather right under my first knuckles that pinches my skin when I throttle up. This does not seem to be improving as they break in. For protection, I am not sure since I have not crashed in them and hope to not find out. For durability, I am not so sure about these gloves. The threads are already coming loose at the thumbs on both hands.
I dont know if I would recommend these as summer gloves. They dont breath well at all. My hands get really sweaty. Once the inner liner in the gloves get moist it is very very hard to get the gloves back on. I have pair of Revit Jerez full gauntlet gloves that breath much less than these, but dont suffer from the moist liner issue. When the gloves and my hands are dry the fit is absolutely perfect. I wear an XL.
This glove seems a bit over priced to me. I think I could have found a better option in the $60 - $70 range.

I bought this jacket for riding in cold and rainy weather. I have ridden on the highway down to 27 degrees and it kept me comfortable with only a short sleeve shirt underneath. This coat starts getting too warm above 50 degrees. I have not yet worn this coat in any kind of rain yet so I cannot comment on that.
The only gripe I have with this coat is the velcro collar. I wish that it was a button, or that the velcro was flipped. The hook side of the velcro is on the right shoulder catches on the bottom of my helmet and starts chewing it up as I ride if the collar is velcro'ed open on the left side.
This jacket is a tight fit. I can only fit one layer of clothing underneath. I dont see being able to wear this jacket much colder than 25 - 20 degrees F.

I have not tested this glove in rain, but I have worn it at 29 degrees F on the highway. These gloves are very warm and not very thick so they do not impede on controller my bike. Below about 35 degrees I do need to wear a glove liner with them or my finger tips get cold.
The only thing about these gloves that I do not like is the HUGE cuffs. They balloon out around the sleeves of all of my jackets. I dont own a jacket thick enough to fill in the cuffs. Even my tourmaster epic jacket which is too hot to wear above 50F does come close. The rain cover in the cuff is not the cause of this, the cuffs are just cut big. It is a minor issue for me because otherwise these gloves are phenomenal. I will post another review when I finally get to wear them in a downpour.
