Most comfortable?
Best feel for controls?
best for gauntlet in and out of jacket? (Cayenne)
best with grip warmers?
best protection?

Thanks for your input. You guys run a solid outfit
Hey Worthydog,

All 3 of those REV'IT! GTX gloves are great options. Here are my replies to your features: Warmest: Bastion or Alaska. Most Comfortable: Fusion. Grip feel: Fusion. Cuff adjustability: Bastion. Best with heated grips: Fusion. Best Protection: Alaska. As you can see, the responses are quite varied. I suggest looking at what features are most important and make the decision accordingly. If I had to pick only one, I would vote for the Alaska, as it offers the best protection and I prefer leather gloves and hard knuckles, but that is my personal preference. The new Fusion gloves are very comfortable and will save you a few dollars too.
