The reason these are only 4 stars instead of 5 is that the fit and feel is still a bit bulky. The protection seems to be all there. I've had them in light to medium rain. While it wasn't a real downpour, it was enough to show they keep me dry. My commute to work is about 30 minutes at 60 mph, and I've been comfortable from the 50's by themselves down to the low 30's and high 20's once I turn on the heated grips. They work better with heated grips than anything else I've had. The palms let the heat in from the grips, and the insulation on the back keeps it in. The fit is pretty good, but they are on the bulky side as are any winter glove. The thumb is a little big on me, unlike my other Rev'It gloves - not enough to get cold, but enough to make using the turn signal awkward. Still a great glove and I love the one-handed cuff closure - I really can fasten and loosen them with one gloved hand.

I wanted brown leather gloves to match the brown leather Dainese jacket I bought, and these are some of the very few I could find. I really like the looks and the style. Protection seems just fine for this style of glove. I usually wear a L (American) to XL (Euro), so I bought the L thinking they run a bit large. Those were WAY too big, so I went down to a M. I would go smaller if I thought it would help, but the wrist is a bit on the tight side, the hand is about right, the fingers are long, and the thumb would still fit if I had a cast on.
They're decent, and I will still wear them. Don't let me talk you out of them if this is the style you want. But Dainese could do (and usually does) SO much better.

I like these jeans a lot. Compared to other riding jeans, they look like normal jeans, feel comfortable, and offer good protection. The knee pads are especially nice for offering protection, not feeling awkward, and looking like they aren't even there.
The "one length" idea was ok in pants with no knee pads, but since these have the pads (and non-adjustable pockets for them), it's not a great compromise. After getting them altered to a pretty typical length, the knee pads end up being a little lower than I would like. They still offer protection where they are, I'd just like them a little higher. Other companies offer pockets with adjustable placement. That would be a very nice addition.
The lining and knee pad pockets are just plain bad. They need to be stitched down or have some sort of closure. My toes tend to snag the pockets when I put them on, and my heel catches the lining when I try to take them off. They've held up so far, but I would guess this will eventually tear the lining. I also don't like the zipper on the rear pockets. The teeth are pretty sharp, making it almost painful to get anything out of the pocket. Maybe making it uncomfortable to take out your wallet was Daniese's idea to save you money, but I'd rather have comfortable pockets.

This thing is great! It holds a lot, attaches easily, is waterproof, feels very rugged, and can be removed when not in use without leaving behind any racks or loose straps. Ok, there are some attachment straps left behind, but those are practically invisible tucked under the rim of the seat. Works great for commuting on a sport bike without having to wear a heavy backpack. My only complaint is that it only comes with 1 set of attachment straps so I can't easily transfer it to my other bike. I plan to solve that by getting a US-20 that will come with attachment loops. Then I can use one, the other, or both together on either bike.
