Rev'it Hydra H2O Gloves - Black
Customer Product Reviews
Nice quality glove
Every glove within my budget (£50-80) had mixed reviews, so I was a little nervous buying these. I was nicely surprised though. The quality is top notch, and the materials feel very premium. I had cheap amazon 'winter' gloves before which left my fingertips numb&stinging at 5c. The H2Os were nice and toasty. A little bit clammy actually but not uncomfortable. I wouldn't wear them when it's more than 15c out - but I dont think you can have the best of both worlds at £70. Tested them in the wet and with road spray there was no evidence of dampness. Not tested them in proper rain (because I'm a wimp and try not to ride in the rain), but I imagine the fabric will wick the moisture like other reviews suggest. My palm size was right in the middle between L and XL, after ordering both I found the smaller glove fitted perfectly. I'm pretty skinny, so it fits bang on. A little snug getting into the glove to start with, but then the finger length and grip is perfect. So if you're a skinny runt like me and in between sizes, go for the smaller one. If your hands are 'bulkier', you might find sliding into the glove tight, so go for the half bigger size but beware the fingers may be a touch too long. Personally, I can't deal with having a gap at the end of my finger it just does my head in. No problem with these, they're like made to measure :). Dexterity is always compromised with winter gloves, but the H2O is way better than the soft mushy inflated type. For what it is, I can still use zips on my jacket, get my phone out of the pocket and write a message without too much bother which is amazing. Overall, great glove. Cheers Sportsbikeshop!
My commute is 20-30 mins max and so far on the 2-5*c my hands are warm so good enough for short commutes. Only bad point for me would be the thickness of the glove makes its slight hard to use controls and have less feel through handlebars.
Brilliant - warm with good feeling
This product bought to replace some years old leather gloves and I'm pleasantly surprised. Ordered in a batch with three others, these were the only ones that passed muster. They're nice and warm and the feeling is good on my Street Triple - to control the digital screen etc they work just fine on the small(ish) buttons.
I'm quite new to riding and only had a summer pair of RST gloves which in recently weather were far from warm enough. So I needed a thicker warmer pair for colder weather riding. My commute to work is about 25 minutes and it was around 0 degrees when I tested these rev it gloves. I have to say that they look good, feel secure and armoured, they are a little tight on the width of the hand but long in the fingers. I opted for a Large and have fairly small hands for a bloke. As for warmth they've done the trick for a short commute but anything over 30/40 minutes in cold weather you would start to feel it but overall I'd say for everyday commute use, a good buy.
Good glove for the price
The gloves are a tight fit around the cuff but once you have them on, they fit quite well. I ordered a M and my previous gloves were a L. My only concern with the gloves is durability. I ride in the UK where it can certainly get quite chilly, and my hands become quite clammy with my body trying to heat my hands up naturally, and the cold temperature of the outside mixing together - This leaves my hands slightly clammy after a 1-2 hour ride. In the long run I can see the material inside falling apart, but probably not before they start to smell bad. Not sure if this is a normal thing with winter gloves with no ventilation. I've never had this issue with Summer gloves for obvious reasons.
Good glove for over 10 degrees
First time out trying these gloves today in storm Brian! Firstly ordered a size Medium which is my normal size, getting glove on is quite tight but once on fit is nice and snug with room for movement and good feel of controls. They look and feel like good quality. So went out for about 1h 30 with light rain and temperatures 0f about 9 degrees with strong winds throughout. Hands are dry so waterproof does the job, at this temperature my hands were starting to get slightly cold at fingertips so any colder would of needed an extra thin glove on with it and this was city riding up to 40mph. First impressions are good hope this helps!
So far so good
After testing these for a short while, these gloves seem to be a good all rounder. Wearing in the scorching heat might not be too good, but for a normal English summer, these are perfectly breathable. Haven't tested in torrential rain yet, but from the few spells that I have worn these, my hands came out bone dry. In terms of comfort and fit, it was perfect. My palms fit great to the size they should, and my fingers followed in suit and fit perfectly. Totally recommend these to any one.
Great gloves, they are very durable I use them every day. In terms of warmth, they are pretty good. Your hands will still get cold if you are riding around 5 degrees outside, but are pretty light weight. Sometimes I use them while cycling, hands don't get sweaty.
Probably OK for town riding
A really nice look, great feel and comfortable. However, they're meant to be insulated, you know, keeping your hands warm. This they don't do. Well, they don't do it at 70mph. After 1hr on the motorway on Dec 4th 2016 I couldn't feel my fingers, not the tips, but the whole fingers. It's a real shame, I've no doubt they stop water getting in, but they're not intended to be used at speeds. The give away to this is that on the label it clearly shows "scooter" use in their iconography. It would benefit for this product being updated by Sportsbikeshop to show that it's intended to be used in this fashion and save us long distance riders from unfortunate finger agony.
I have been caught in heavy downpours and these gloves have kept me warm and dry. The look good and feel good. At first the gloves were tight to out on and off however after a couple uses these gloves started to loosen up and fit my hand a lot better making them really comfortable. The Short knitted cuff is very comfortable and creates a good link between glove and jacket keeping my wrist warm and dry. Although this may not be a Summer glove, I have been using it during the Summer and it is still very comfortable. I have not used this in the Winter months yet so cannot determine how they hold up under very cold conditions. Great product though so far, would definitely recommend. Great service from Sportsbikeshop too, will shop here again.
