I just received a pair of size 9 black gloves. I am a size large with longer than average fingers and these fit almost perfectly. I have a very hard time finding gloves that fit, so I am very pleased.
The quality of construction is excellent. The leather is perfect, not too thin and not too thick.The gloves have lots of very small perforations, so the ventilation should be fine. The extra padding on the knuckles and the ceramic pads on the heel of the hand are just what I was looking for. The short velcro cuffs cinch down nicely to fit under the sleeve of my jacket. There is even a wiper for your face shield on the forefinger of the left hand glove.
I haven't ridden with these gloves yet, but all indications are that these will be great gloves.
Yes, I recommend this product.

These are very nice quality cold weather gloves. I rode in rain for an hour at 50% and my hands stayed warm and dry (with grip heaters). I did feel like the gloves wouldn't keep my hands warm if the temperature were much lower. The gloves should be good down to 45 degrees. Very nice size and length of gauntlet. I recommend you start with the gloves snug, since they do loosen up after only a few hours of riding. The gloves have longer fingers than other brands like Rev'It. The thumbs are about a half inch too long for me. I tried several brands and these are keepers for me.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This shield fit my helmet perfectly with no adjustments required. The dark smoke color is about the same level of darkness as a standard pair of dark green/gray sunglasses. It is much more comfortable not having to wear sunglasses. The shield also cuts the sun glare when forced to look into the sun low on the horizon. The shield fit perfectly with no adjustments required to seal gaps. The shield is not too dark for cloudy days.

REV'IT! Defender GTX Gore-Tex Jacket Make it safer. Make it lighter. Make it stronger. The fifth generation of adventure jackets since the groundbreaking original Cayenne jacket. The Defender GTX sets a new standard in apparel for the adventure and serious touring rider. Every stitch, reinforced. Fabrics which are both lighter and stronger. A new DWR coating prevents water from soaking the outer layer, while the removable GORE-TEX Performance Shell removable membrane ensures the highest level of waterproofing and breathability, guaranteed. Superfabric ceramic panels and SAS-TEC armor protect, while huge vents, large pockets, glove friendly pull-tabs, and a great Exkin Air thermal liner complete the package. Every aspect of the Defender GTX was designed for easier use, and more abuse than the competition, period. This jacket forms a recommended combination with the DEFENDER GTX Pants .

This jacket is very light and comfortable. The high tech pads are so thin you barely notice them. Even though the fabric seems thin, it doesn't flap in the wind. It vents very well. I've been minimally uncomfortable riding at 90-95 degrees (low humidity). The fit through the arms and chest is not overly tight or loose. The styling and look are great. The coating on the fabric really helps the jacket stay clean. The zippers and vents can all be worked easily while riding and wearing gloves. The only glitch is that when you fold the collar back and hook it, it isn't very secure and pops off the hook easily. I will modify it somehow to fix this problem.
