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.
I notice in trying on this glove that the finger length is just a tad longer than the other winter REVIT gloves I’m seeing in the 2018 batch. If you have average or longer fingers, you’ll like this style!
Our Two Cents
Sometimes less is more when it comes to winter gloves. The Kryptonite GTX is an insulated waterproof glove but without the full gauntlet.
I can see many riders preferring this shorter cuff glove. If your riding jacket has a regular sleeve rather than being zipped down snug like a race jacket, this shorter cuff that closely grips the wrist will easily fit under the shirt or jacket sleeve without bunching. The cuff is an elasticized knit cuff, so there are not adjustments other than the stretch nature of it.
I’d characterize the insulation level as moderate. These gloves will be good for mild to colder days, but maybe not for the coldest days of the winter. The back of the hand on this style is textile and the palm side of the hand is leather. 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.
For motorcycling protection, the Kryptonite GTX has the usual substantial molded protector over the knuckles and then there are some little rectangles of energy absorbing foam built in over the fingers and in the palm area of the hand. And to keep the gloves safely on your hand in case of a fall, there is sturdy Velcro-close strap at the wrist. Overall it is a nice protection package given the gloves lack of bulk.
The waterproofing in the glove is genuine GoreTex, and its the “bonded” kind where the waterproof liner is bonded to the glove’s outer material rather than being an extra layer. It’s a more compact construction and results in less slippage between your hand and the palm leather.
Like all other REVIT winter gloves, this one is made of quality materials. And the short stretch cuff design on this one is the standout feature. :: Paul, 10-11-18
REVIT says: A winter glove designed to keep the hands dry and safe. These are not designed to keep hands warm during extreme cold winter days, but they will keep all wind out and provide 100% waterproofing thanks to the GORE-Grip membrane that will also provide optimum grip for secure control. Protection comes from a hard-shell knuckle and palm slider, the use of Temperfoam® at the thumb and palm, and injected finger knuckles. The use of an adjustment strap and the application of stretch on all fingers make the gloves feel comfortable while offering the right freedom of movement.
