REV'IT! Airvolution Motorcycle Gloves The company name tries a little too hard to inspire excitement, but REV'IT! is producing some good gear. The REV'IT! Airvolution Glove is a good product that doesn't quite live up to the name.

When you think about it, it is easy to be well-protected and comfortable in cool weather. Protective gear is usually, by nature, heavy. Herein lies the issue at hand. Hot weather gear must be lighter and less dense, which usually means sacrificing some level of protection. On the surface, the REV'IT! Airvolution Gloves look like they will bridge the protection vs. airflow chasm.

The glove's outer shell is a combination of cowhide and goatskin with perforations (ventilation panels) at the fingers, backhand, and thumb. Protection is ample with carbon hard-shell finger and knuckle guards, EVA foam at little finger, thumb and palm, and Kevlar stitching.

The glove has a good, aggressive race fit. It is a glove that will require some break-in (as is the case with most good gloves). It comes in three color combinations and sizes small through 3XL. Most riders report that the sizing is true for the most part.

So if quality, sizing, and protection are all solid, what's the problem? In a word: ventilation. The gloves simply do not move as much air as their name would suggest. This is a great fall and spring glove, but it is not a true hot weather offering.
