REV'IT! Nitric H2O Rain Jacket The NITRIC H2O Rain jacket has been purposefully designed as a classic overcoat. It can be worn over any leather or textile jacket, offering great functional features with a level of quality not often found in basic 'day saving' rainwear. The jacket is constructed of PVC-free PWROxford offering 100 waterproofing as well as breathability. Draw straps at the cuffs, collar, hips, and waist ensure perfect closure against wind and water. For visibility, reflection panels have been laminated onto the fabric at strategic positions on the upper arms. Plus, theres plenty of storage in this jacket, both inside and outside this includes a waterproof document pocket behind the front closure, and easy storage for the hoodie in the collar pocket. Available in classic black and high-visibility neon yellow. Comes with a handy transport bag. PROTECTION FEATURES Outer shell PVC-free PWROxford with PU coating, PVC-free PWROxford EN471 with PU coating (in Neon Yellow colour only) Waterproofing 100 waterproof COMPOSIITON Outer shell 100 polyester (100 polyurethane coating) Lining 100 polyester Visibility laminated reflection at upper arms ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit tour fit, regular Adjustability adjustment tab at upper arms and cuffs, adjustment straps at waist, adjustment drawcord at hood and hem Features PVC-free Hood with easy inside-collar storage Includes transport bag Outer stash pockets One inner Pocket Napoleon pocket EN343 certified

Haven't had the chance to really test the jacket yet.
Definitely like the compact design.
Seems like it should be great.

Alpinestars SMX-2 Air Carbon Gloves With carbon protection and motocross inspired styling and comfort, the Alpinestars SMX2 Air Carbon glove makes an excellent choice for summer motorcycle riding Utilizing an advanced leather and mesh hybrid construction, Alpinestars SMX-2 Air Carbon Glove offers the street rider superior comfort and performance while the carbon fiber knuckle and Clarino reinforced palm ensures high levels of protection. Lightweight hybrid leather and mesh upper construction offers the ideal combination of durability, abrasion resistance and comfort. Synthetic leather palm construction with Clarino reinforcements provides extra durability and protection where it is needed most. Reinforced landing zone with built in foam padding offers additional impact protection Sizing Note If you are in between sizes order a size larger, in RevZilla's experience these gloves fit slightly small.

Just used my 4th pair of these gloves for an 18 day off road tour of Namibia.
These gloves are great, have always served me well.
Love the fit and feel.
I buy the gloves to fit a bit tight when new. They stretch just a bit and fir me perfectly after a few hours on the bike.

REVIT Women's Ventura Jacket Serious equipment for the serious female rider. The REVIT Ventura Ladies jacket includes all of the important safety and practical features of a top-of-the-line adventure jacket, but with some specific features that enhance the comfort level even more. A good example is the waterproof, detachable liner, which can be easily removed and stowed away in the back pocket. Huge two-way zippers at the sleeves, and a fully removable collar that hides a big air mesh panel, allow the wind to flow in freely. Bottom line The worlds first true ladies adventure jacket. Ready for Paris but made for Dakar.

A fantastic jacket for the woman adventure rider. The double liner (seperate waterproof and thermal) combined with the venting make this the perfect jacket . The fit, style and comfort of the jacket are ideal. We recently completed an 18 day tour of Namibia. The jacket was perfect!

I'd been considering a sound system for my helmet for a while. I'd used Autocomm and Starcom in the past. More recently I've used earbuds connected to an iPod. But I really wanted a system without wires to I didnt feel "tethereed" to the bike or a device. I'd read the reviews of the Sena, Cardo and other systems. I decided on the Sena and I am not disappointed. Install was easy. The system paired with my phone with no problems. Sound quality is outstanding. If you are looking for a system like this I recommend the Sena. You won't be disappointed. The sale price at Revzilla sealed the deal. I have the system with speakers in one helmet and this one for using earbuds in a second helmet. The sound qualicyt and volume with the earbuds is even better than the speakers.

Klim Tactical Short Say goodbye to the days of chafing and other riding maladies associated with loose-fitting riding shorts. The Klim Tactical Short is designed to keep your equipment stowed properly and to wick moisture away from your skin to ensure maximum possible comfort on your ride. The saddle area is constructed with a high-tech triple-density chamois that will help absorb riding vibrations and cushion your ride. PORON XRD Extreme Impact Protection material is embedded in strategic locations to help absorb impacts. On impact, the PORON XRD high-performance molecules create a unique protective shield that can repeatedly absorb up to 90 of the most intense force. PORON XRD EXTREME IMPACT PROTECTION MATERIAL ON SIDES AND THIGHS AND OVER TAILBONE PADDED COMPRESSION SHORT MOISTURE-WICKING POLYESTER MATERIAL 4-WAY-STRETCH SPANDEX SOFT ELASTIC WAIST SUEDE TEXTURE CHAMOIS CROTCH MICRO-INJECTED LOGO TAG-LESS ARTICULATED DESIGN MATERIALS SPANDEX POLYESTER PORON XRD EXTREME IMPACT PROTECTION MATERIAL

Bought these riding shorts to offer some protection under my Klim pants.Short ride so far and they are really comfortable. Easy to forget they are on. Will put them to the test during a two week off road trip in Washington, Oregon and Cali starting 01 Sept. These replace my completely worn out LD riding shorts. I like the idea of the added protection of these shorts. Looked at other more expensive alternatives and tried all of them on at the Revzilla showroom. These fit the best and were the most comfortable.

 Arai XD-3 Bosch Helmet
Arai XD-3 Bosch Helmet
Arai XD-3 Bosch Helmet High-flow peak channels air directly into the front vents. Twin-cam Shield Pivot System allows the face shield to operate fully under a peak that can be lowered for better aerodynamics. Can be configured with shield and peak, peak only (for use with goggles) or shield only. Fully Removable/Replaceable and washable liner with optional sizes available for a custom fit. 4 top vents. Dual Intake / Dual Exhaust Ventilation-dual I/C top intake vents and Double Delta bridged exhaust vents designed to draw significant volumes of air from helmet interior. CLC (Complex Laminate Construction) shell-fiberglass composite is stronger and lighter-allows use of softer, less-dense liner materials inside for increased rider comfort. Efficient chinbar vent (with interior and exterior controls) flows fresh air to the mouth area or across the shield interior to help prevent fogging. Large chinbar side exhaust vents draw out additional hot air. Meets or exceeds Snell and D.O.T. standards. Note The peak/visor supplied is not suitable for high-speed use where air striking a side or main surface of the peak may cause difficulty in returning the head to a forward and/or level position
