We find REVIT gloves run a bit on the snug side as compared to most US based brands. The fit is very similar to Alpinestars which also fit more snugly than other brands of gloves. The tendency to run small is not so noticeable that we’d advise you to buy one size larger, but if you are sometimes in between sizes, your best shot would be to choose larger. Hopefully you’ve had some experience with buying gloves and can choose based upon the fit of a previous pair. If you have no previous experience with glove sizing, go here for help.
Our Two Cents
These REVIT Striker 2 gloves combine comfort and breathability with above average protection (for a short cuff summer glove that is). These gloves offer very comfortable leather in the palms and a combination of material on the back of the hand. The leather in the palms feels substantial and should be long wearing. There is a bit of extra padding in the heel of the hand too. These leather palms are lined too… a feature we are sometimes asked about which prevents dye bleed from the leather onto your hands.
The back of the hand is a combination of leather, fabric and protective pieces. There is a nice molded softer rubber piece over the knuckles which will be comfortable to wear, but is thick enough to feel like it would do well with impact protection. And the fabric on the back of the hand and tops of the fingers is very breathable, so this glove will be great in mild to hot weather. The gloves also have some rubber finger armor pieces on the tops of the finger, which I’ll admit aren’t all that substantial, but rather I think they are added more for cosmetic reasons.
As I said at the outset, these gloves will be a very nice choice for mild to hot weather use and they provide a greater measure of protection than most other gloves for this purpose. And at the price point I think they are a pretty good value. :: Paul, 03-30-16
