In looking for a set of warm weather riding gloves I needed the following criterias met, some were more important than others but they all were dependent on each other. The Rev'it Comet met all my mandates not 100% but it won in it's category.
Air Flow: the Rev't Comet offers excellent air flow with it's mesh/leather construction
Protection: My belief is that air flow and protection do not go hand in hand but the Comet offers excellent protection for a warm weather glove.
Fit: Based on other reviews I ordered a size up and I am glad I did. Good fit (one size up)
Pricing: Had to be sensible and I believe it is. There are other competing gloves that I considered but the price vs. time of usage wouldn't justify the expenditure.
Style: Maybe I am over thinking this but who exactly is Rev'it trying to cater this glove to? My kids like the flashy fonts, the graphics and what not but come on why not offer this glove in monotone leather. Needless to say I cringe at the styling of this glove but goes to show how much I like the rest of it's features.
Good luck and safe riding everyone!
Yes, I recommend this product.

REV'IT! Summit H2O Gloves Featuring the same technical specifications as the Summit glove, the REVIT SUMMIT H2O offers the added functionality of total waterproofing. Thanks to the addition of the newly developed hydratex Pro Touch membrane, which is fixed to the inside of the goatskin outer shell, your hands stay dry, no matter the weather, while offering an unsurpassed level of comfort and a perfect grip. The REVIT SUMMIT H2O is a great choice as a fall/spring and summer waterproof glove.

Great looking and comfort glove but H2O protection?

In planning a 7 day trip I concluded that I would need water protecting glove and with some research I went ahead and bought the Rev'it Summit H2O glove. The reviews were good, the price was right and the manufacturer's description looked pretty on target as to what I was looking for, a glove to keep me dry in the rain. Two days after I received the gloves (excellent customer service thanks Revzilla) I had the opportunity to try them out and put them trough the wringer, little did I know that I would literately have do to this after an hour of some wet riding. Unfortunately or fortunately for this reviews sake I got some rain on the ride. Initially the gloves were holding up, no problem nice and dry. The rain stopped only to start up again, it was only after the second set of rain that the gloves failed and it quickly became evident that it was going to be a very long trip. The gloves got drenched, I don't really know why the failure after a brief drying, the amount of rain coming down was about the same. Needless to say I ventured on. They can probably be considered waterproof for daily commutes or short rides but nothing close to a touring waterproof glove. it is extremly unfortunate as the gloves offer excellent protection, the size is true to fit, they are comfortable and they look sharp. I entered a "no" recommendation b/c of the "H2O" aspect but other than that I would recommend them as a good all around glove.
Good luck and safe riding everyone!
