The glove is very nice to wear and is very easy to put on and take off. The problem I had is that it is definitely not waterproof. I got stuck in 5 hours of light rain with it being 45 degrees and my hands were soaked(not to mention cold). Just to verify that it wasn't me, when I got home, I dipped the gloves halfway into a bucket and the water seeped through the gloves and got my hands wet. If you wanted a glove to ride down to the 40s with, then the glove is fine but look elsewhere if you want waterproof. I highly recommend you test the glove's ability to prevent water from reaching your hands before you take it out on the road.
No, I do not recommend this product.

I usually ride in 25 degree Farenheit and these liners do a good job of keeping me warm on just level 1(out of 5). The liners are very soft and comfortable. The cable that was given to connect to the battery is not long enough: I wanted to route the cable around to the front of my bike and that isn't happening - at least not without splicing the cable. Aside from that issue, everything is functioning fine and I'm warm going to work in the morning.

The glove does a great job keeping my hands warm until I ride below 40F. If you intend on riding below that, definitely invest in some heated glove liners to go with the gloves or go with heated gloves. The inner glove liner is a very nice feature to tuck in my jacket. The glove has no protection but that is to be expected for the price.

The padding on the gloves are very nice. In fact, there is enough padding that I don't feel the vibration from the handlebars as much as I used to. The stitching seems very well made and it looks like they did a very good job with the design of where to put padding too. The velcro was very well thought out because my previous pair of gloves tore apart at the fingers due to the velcro sticking to it. Since Revit kept mesh at the top of the fingers and not the bottom, I haven't had any problems with the fingers getting eaten up by the velcro. My only complaint (just like the other reviewers) is that the fingers are a little short - I don't have long fingers but the pinky on the glove is a little short for me. Every once in a while when I grip my handlebars, my finger pushes up against the glove so I would have to adjust the glove a little to reduce the pressure. Per Revzilla I did order a large since I normally wear a medium. The airflow is decent for a gauntlet-like glove. Of course during the colder months, I will be wishing there wasn't as much airflow. To wrap this up, every function was carefully thought out by Revit but somehow the size fell short but - with that being the only issue, I'll happily accept it.

Most people had a problem with the fit but I did not seem to have that problem. What I did was look inside my shoe and read off what it said for European size and just ordered that(which was a size 8.5 but I normally wear 9.5 wide in US). I would recommend you do that to reduce any ordering problems. I should also mention I have extremely large calves and the fit is great - it isn't restrictive.
Don't expect much for air flow since it is a waterproof boot. I have not had a chance to try this out in the rain but it looks like it will do well in the rain. Many others complain about the zipper and I will have to concur with their complaints about the darn hard to zip zipper. I have found an easier way to zip it though: if you pull the front of the boot towards the other side, it will zip up with no problems. I am not sure why the zipper isn't easy to zip up but once I learned the remedy it wasn't an issue anymore. I would take a guess that maybe these zippers are better at waterproofing than other zippers since it is on the outside of the boot?
As far as comfort goes, I love how it feels when I am riding. I forgot to bring dress shoes with me one day to work so I got stuck wearing these in a business casual environment but no one noticed or bothered saying anything to me. If you unzip the boot 50% of the way and close the velcro to where it is loose around your shin, your legs will be able to breathe better. I made it just fine in a 8 - 5 environment but there was definitely a good bit of sweat in the boot by the end of the day; albeit no air flow, the boot was comfortable.
I personally wear these rain or shine because it seems to have better protection than the shoes that barely cover over the ankle. I rode with my tennis shoes one day to go less than a mile down the road and I felt so unprotected. I'm sure there are other boots out there with more protection but I'm sure for this price you can't really beat it: waterproof + protection.

I've received many compliments on the looks of the gloves!! The glove has great air flow because I had no sweat after riding for a couple hours in 90 degree weather - and I usually sweat profusely in gloves. I do have to say the gloves fit a little small because my hand circumference was 8.2 inches but I went with the medium anyways because there were no smalls in stock. The medium fits very very snug so I would hate to see how the small fits me. The palm protection seems just OK to me but I am hoping I never have to test them.
