I've tried quite a few gloves before finding a pair that I like, and this is them! They're easily the most comfortable gloves of any type that I've ever worn. They fit pretty true to size for my hands (I'm an XL in just about all gloves, and an XL Monster is perfect for me), and as mentioned by others they break in quickly and stretch to the shape of your hand in no time. They are easy to get on and off, and the protection looks great (for a short-cuff glove: while I wear these on pleasure rides, I would not count on these for track days or spirited riding.) They also allow for a surprising amount of movement and feel given the protection value: it's not like having naked hands, but I can manipulate things a lot more easily than I can in my Tarmac gloves.
The other day I was caught in a thunderstorm with them and got drenched. Aside from the dye running onto my hands, the gloves are fine: in fact, if anything they see, to fit me better after the rain! I'll probably try to condition them just in case they start to dry out, though. The rain storm was at the end of a three-day road trip during which I wore them for about 12 hours a day on average, through some pretty warm and humid NE weather: they kept me cool, did not cause the dreaded hand sweats, and were a pleasure to wear the whole time.
The only negative I can think of is that the grippy Rev'it logos on the index and forefinger don't last very long. They could have done a much better job of applying grippy silicon bits.
