Rev'it Stratos Gore-Tex Leather Gloves - Black
Customer Product Reviews
I've spent most of my biking life searching for warm dry winter gloves. I've found them in the Stratos. The cuff isn't so long that it interferes with your jacket (I'm and gloves under rider). They have a unique wrist strap. It takes a little getting used to, but becomes 2nd nature quickly. I ride an XT1200 so hand guards give some "pinky" protection but I didn't need my Gerbings at all this winter. I didn't get wet hands either and I suffered more than a couple of downpours (400mls per week commute) Overall I would recommend these without a second thought.
Great Fit and Great Feel
This review does not cover the heat retention and insulation as the weather has been mild since I have got them. For all other aspects - this glove hits a home run. It easy to take on and because of the self fastening feature. It has an excellent grip and feel of the throttle through the glove, snug and well protected and even when the temperature changes it doesn't make the hands sweat. Although I can imagine it to be a different story in the summer. In short the company's reputation is truly built on credible and high quality products - you are not just paying for the name. Sportsbikeshop as always is quite prompt and easy to purchase off.
Had these gloves for a few months now and they are still a bit of a struggle to get past the wrist guard (I expected them to have broken in by now). Very slim and comfy once on. However my jacket's wrists are even slimmer so they have to go on the outside of the sleeve. Unfortunately this makes them anything but waterproof as I find they leak at the point of the central fastening thingy that lets you fasten and unfasten each globe with one hand. Because of this it's hard to tell how waterproof the rest of the glove is. As with other reviewers I've found they they are comfortable down to about 5 or 6 degrees centigrade before the heated grips need come on. Overall they score not brilliant (probably due to my jacket) but not awful as they are comfy. A good buy for Spring and/or Autumn.
I used them up to 5C temp and i have to say that i dont need to turn on my heating grips. fast zip-I dont really use it but its working good, i just put in and out my hands. this gloves are fully waterproof so far. finger to whipe water works better then rubber blade in my other gloves.
I wanted to use them a while before to write my review and here we go: The gloves are very comfortable and not bulky compared to other winder gloves. I have used them in temperature as low as 0/-3 and after 10/15 min of riding the cold will hit you (luckily for me I have heated grips). I have tried them also under the rain and Gore-Tex is a guarantee! It kept my hands totally dry during my 30/40 min commuting (mostly highway). I consider the opening and closing system that they sell as extremely clever as a pain in the ***, it makes very annoying put the gloves on and remove them because you can't property open them. Easily fixable cutting the end of the strap and they're now much much better. I bought the same size as all my other gloves they're spot on. Overall a good winter gloves especially if used with heated grips (a UK/Ireland must have on my opinion).
Used these for the last two weeks, in rain and cold mornings (10-12c temp). Waterproof works, fingers felt cold after 30 mins, not freezing cold but very numb, had to whack the heated grips on to make it comfortable. Not sure how they will fare in under 10c. Deffo need heated grips! Size ok, little bulky but will see how it copes in the next few months.
Great 3 season glove
The glove won't see you through sub zero temps but I've used it at 5 degrees and lower without heated grips and after 30 mins on the motorway your hands are undoubtedly cold but it's not crippling. Perfect 3 season glove I'd say.
I purchased this glove with a lead time and it arrived early, great work Sportsbikeshop. I have used the gloves in the cold at about 2 deg C and I still had warm hands. Yet to try in rain. I recommend ordering a size above your usual like I did as it helps with warmth. Hope this was helpful.
Dry hands at last
I spent months reading and watching various reviews in an effort to find that elusive product ...... a pair of gloves that actually did prove to be waterproof. So after having read the one solitary review on the Sportsbikeshop website about these gloves ..... I went on to watch the Revzilla video, and that was it, the decision was made. Now living in the Lake District, you will maybe appreciate why waterproof gear is the major concern. Even the ducks here get p****d off with the amount of rain we get. And likewise I get p****d off with all this manufacturer rubbish claiming their gear to be 'waterproof.' So on purchasing these gloves I waited several weeks before posting this review, just so that I could experience their capability. And I have not been disappointed. I have worn the gloves on two in-particular rides where the rain was torrential - one occasion being when Cumbria had something like 22cm of rainfall in a day. And whilst the rest of my 'waterproof gear' (with the exception of my Daytona boots) leaked like a sieve - the gloves however were unbelievably bone dry. As yet, I have not found it necessary to switch on the heated grips, so to-date I would say that they are sufficiently warm, although they have not been used in freezing temperatures. I also find them incredibly comfortable. The only slightly negative comment I could make is that the thumbs at times seems too long. But is that nit-picking???? I ride a Honda Crosstourer with hand guards, and ride with my gloves underneath my jacket (Halvarssons) jacket, if that's of any help. As always - great service from Sportsbikeshop. Why bother to buy from anywhere else!
Spent a bit of time looking for a mid price, waterproof pair of gloves. Ride reviews a Rev'it glove, but not this one. Revzilla cover it on YouTube, say no more. Size guide was good on the website, quick release and fastening works well, comfortable and so far waterproof.
