I tried these on and found them to be comfortable.
They had good armor and flexibility. The velcro and zippers seemed of good quality.
Why I returned them (my only complaint) was because of the toe height (from sole to top of toe) was too tall for me. For shifting gears, more toe travel/angle was involved to shift gears. Maybe my shifter is too close to the foot peg?
They did run on the slightly large side, though. I ordered a 45 as I wear a 10.5, but probably would've been better off getting a 44 instead.

Keeps hands dry in the rain. Good protection. Wiper blade is a joke

I've had my pair for a couple weeks now and just tonight got to try them out in the rain.
Pros: Good/very good armor protection. Hands stay dry in the rain, but I haven't tried an immersion in a bucket of water test (yet) Good construction of materials. The reflectivity is great. Range of motion in fingers is okay. Seems like the palm has some bunching of material so when you grip the grips, more exertion is required, which could make your hands tired on a long trip. That could be improved, but it's not too bad overall.
Cons: The wiper blade, seriously, is NOT very effective. Revit could learn something from competitor gloves, where the wiper is about 3-4mm that stands out from the middle of the finger (from top to bottom). The blade on this Revit pair is on the top edge and stands out, maybe, 1-2mm. The material around the wiper would hit your visor before the blade would effectively (and it hasn't yet. I just got back from riding 17 miles in the rain at speed) clean the visor.
It's a little on the snug/small side. I ordered a Large pair and thought about returning them for an XL, but I think these will stretch out a bit. (hoping)
The gauntlet cuff could use some elastic to stretch a little bit, but that's just a suggestion and not really a con. It doesn't bother me that much.
I'd give higher ratings if the wiper was improved. That's really my only complaint, especially when it was hard to see tonight and it didn't really do the job. For almost $200, I want every little feature to do the job.
If anyone knows of a glove that's as armored as these, keeps the hands dry and has a decent wiper, I'd like to know.
For the price, you're mainly paying for the protection and features other than the wiper, so I would still recommend this pair of gloves.
