I have difficult hands to buy gloves for, since my palms are 8.5" which is generally a large, but my fingers are long. I ordered a large in these gloves, and they fit perfectly. The feel is superb, the build is high quality, and the cut is perfect. There's room in the fingertips and thumb to be a good fit when clenching a fits, yet the palm isn't baggy. I tried on over 20 pairs of gloves trying to find one I liked and after all that and a month of looking, I found these. Originally I'd bought the REV'IT Chevron gloves, which looked cooler, but pinched my throttle thumb. The thumb on the clutch hand ended up ripping so I sent them back and was refunded. Unfortunately they were by that time out of stock, so I had to look for other gloves. I tried the REV'IT Curb, the Dianese Ricochet, and the Scorpion Klaw. This glove feels better than all of them. I will say though, that you sacrifice a little protection. The knuckles seem well padded, but there's not much protection on the fingers. The super-fabric on the outside palm is a nice layer of protection too. Another great thing is the cuff closure. Its the best I've seen in a glove. Its big enough to go over your jacket if you want, but somehow cinches down small enough to slide under your sleeve as well. It's very well designed.
I have only one gripe, and that is that they could have some rubber or something on the palm to stick to the grips better. Its not a big deal for the clutch hand, but I have to hold the throttle tighter to keep it from rotating back. It's not terrible, but it could be better.
In conclusion, if you're an average rider with average riding needs, and you want a glove that feels amazing and flows lots of air for summer riding, look no further than this glove. If you ride track at all though, or push your bike harder, I'd move to something with more protection.

REVIT Chevron Gloves The REVIT Chevron gloves combine the protective elements of a true sport glove with the functionality and ventilation of a mesh summer glove, and are designed for comfortable high-speed summer touring. Premium protection has been incorporated into the gloves at the areas of greatest vulnerability in a crash. Carbon hard-shell knuckles combined with super-strong seams provide serious protection, while a fully perforated upper allows for maximum airflow.

These gloves are great! There really is nothing I can say bad about them except one thing. They do run small! I'm almost always a large in most gloves, but in these I'm an XL. And I have probably normal sized hands, since I'm not a big guy. For reference, my hands measure 8.5" at the palm, which would translate to a large in the size chart. However, unless you like TIGHT gloves, get a size up. I know leather breaks in, but my right thumb in the size large actually started to hurt because it was so tight. Also, for whatever reason, the right hand in both the large, and xlarge I ordered is a touch smaller than the left. It's not a big deal, even nice since your left hand does more moving around with the clutch and stuff, but just something to be aware of. Other than that, I love these! They look awesome, feel awesome, the cuffs fit very well under the cuffs of my Dianese Super Speed textile jacket and don't pop out while riding. I have yet to see what air flow is like in warm temps, but protection is most important to me, so I'm happy either way.
