REV’IT! Sand 4 H2O Gloves Verdict: Worth Buying?

After riding for hours in these gloves, I can confidently say they live up to expectations, providing noticeable improvements over the previous Sand 3 model.

They check all the boxes in terms of weather protection, safety features, comfort, and long-term durability. While not inexpensive, the combination of premium protection and all-weather versatility makes them well worth the price, in my opinion.

Putting the Revit Sand 4 H2O to the Test

I’ve logged over 200 miles wearing these gloves in conditions ranging from dry summer heat to cold late-fall rains. Here are some of my impressions after really putting them through their paces:

Covered Pinky and Palm Sliders

Having extra leather coverage on the outer pinky is greatly appreciated. The large palm sliders provide good grip and abrasion resistance without limiting feel.

Snug Fit

These run true to size. I wear a men’s large, and the Revit large fits perfectly without binding while allowing liner layers. The wide hook-and-loop closure helps fine-tune fit.

Waterproof and Breathable

The Hydratex liner blocks wind and moisture surprisingly well. It prevents wet hands from making them feel clammy. I stayed dry in heavier rains.

Excellent Feel and Comfort

The gloves provide a good tactile feel and feedback, while the stretch materials ensure great flexibility. The pre-curved shape offers immediate broken-in comfort with zero break-in period.

Impact Protection Right Where You Need It

The injection-molded knuckles reinforced pinky side and PWR Shell fabric provide impact absorption exactly where they’re most useful. The palm slider is a nice plus for going down.

For riders seeking a highly functional 4-season glove packed with useful features, the Revit Sand 4 H2O stands out as a top pick. I’ll be relying on these for many miles to come!

The Sand 4 H2O is the waterproof touring version of Revit’s popular Sand 4 glove. While the standard Sand 4 leans more toward the ADV category, the H2O offers weather protection for travelers and commuters.

A Closer Look at Materials and Construction

The first thing that stood out is the combination of materials providing both waterproofing and abrasion protection:

  • Goat leather palm and pinky reinforcement
  • 500D stretch panels on the backhand and fingers
  • PWR Shell stretch fabric made of aramid fibers on high-impact zones
  • Hydratex waterproof liner backed by Revit’s McFIT technology to prevent bunching

The gloves have a gauntlet-style cuff with a hook-and-loop closure and elastic panel at the wrist. This ensures a secure fit and helps seal out moisture.

The knuckle protector features injection-molded TPU covered in foam padding for impact absorption. Fingertip’s touchscreen capability allows you to use devices without removing the gloves.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does the sizing compare to other Revit gloves?

The sizing is very consistent with other Revit gloves I’ve worn. Order your normal Revit size, and you’ll get a proper fit. The hook-and-loop closure provides extra adjustment capability.

How easy are the Sand 4 H2O gloves to get on and off?

Thanks to the hydrotex liner staying fixed in place, they slide on and off much easier than most waterproof
