REV’IT! Kodiak GTX Gloves Review: The Winter Glove Benchmark?

When I saw the Revit Kodiak GTX gloves, I had to consider whether they were worth that premium cost. In this review, I’ll break down the features of the Kodiak GTX gloves to help you decide if they align with your winter riding needs.

But, the main question I will answer in this review is: Are these the best motorcycle gloves for cold weather for you? Let’s find out!

REV’IT! Kodiak GTX Gloves Long Distance Test

I found that most heavy-duty winter motorcycle gloves become fatiguing and uncomfortable during long stints due to their stiffness. Not so with the Kodiak GTX model – these feel almost custom-fitted even after hours of riding.

The snug fit prevents winter air from penetrating while allowing moisture vapor to escape through the Gore-Tex membrane. My hands stay warm and dry across states.

Meanwhile, the pre-curved design and stretch fabric panels ensure zero break-in time. The glove moves fluidly the moment I put them on.

Fending off cold winds usually requires compromise in comfort or protection. The Kodiak GTX gloves satisfy both, embodying a lightweight feel that belies their rugged build.

The Highway 21, Rev’It Cassini, and Rev’It Boxxer gloves offer insulation and weather protection better suited for cold weather compared to the Kodiak GTX.

However, the Kodiak has more flexibility and comfort features that make it ideal for long-distance touring. The Klim Adventure glove competes directly as a lightweight Gore-Tex weatherproof option but has less insulation.

  • 3M Thinsulate insulation – Maximum warmth without bulk
  • TPU knuckle protection – Shields against impact
  • Goat leather – Water-resistant and durable
  • Palm slider – Reinforcement for abrasion resistance
  • Touchscreen fingertip – Convenience for device use
  • Reflective details – Enhanced visibility

With premium protection technologies like Gore-Tex and TPU armor, the Kodiak GTX
