We find that gloves from REV’IT! are generally very consistent in fit from one model to the next, and we find they 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 Kodiak GTX gloves from REVIT have thicker insulation for winter use wrapped in a really nice full-leather package. And for a winter glove, the protection features are pretty significant.
The whole shell of this glove is very high quality and soft leather. They look and feel great. And the waterproof liner used is genuine Gore Tex which is the best for keeping water out, but also to allow the perspiration to escape.
The notable protection features here are the substantial protector built in over the knuckle and the hard plastic slider in the palm of the hand. The slider is a feature found on most race gloves. The slider will promote sliding if you hit the pavement rather than grabbing or torquing which more likely occurs with just plain leather or padding. The slider is integrated into the design so you really won’t feel it and it is covered in an extra layer of the leather that extends on up the pinkie.
You’ll see reflective material built into the design too. They are darker in color than the typical silver ones, so they work well at night but also look good in the day.
The gloves secure to your hand with the triangular strap at the wrist. Its a little strange at first, but then becomes pretty handy. It is designed to be able to work to snug down the glove or loosen it up even with a gloved hand, which is especially hand with an insulated glove like this. You’ll see what I mean when you try them out.
Each glove has a strip of soft fabric (or suede leather, I’m not sure which) down the inside of the index finger so you can wipe your visor. Considering the gloves use the genuine Gore Tex liner, and with the quality of the leather used, I think these gloves are very fairly priced. :: Paul, 10-10-18
REVIT says: The Kodiak GTX is the perfect pair of leather winter gloves. Yes, leather. While cold weather gloves are typically textile, we created the Kodiak GTX to have all the right features, wrapped in a gorgeous package. Being heavily insulated, they offer all the warmth your hands will need when the temperatures start to dip. Furthermore, the GORE-TEX® membrane provides the 100% waterproofing that you need to keep your hands dry.
