This is by far the most innovative, comfortable, and ergonomic motorcycle backpack! I was having a lot of neck and shoulder strain from commuting to/from work everyday (20 min commute); I did my research and I came upon this gem! The r25 is considerably light, and has enough room to be a day pack.
It has one big main compartment and I load my: scrub pants/top, hoodie (in my helmet bag), deodorant, body spray, hair gel, toothbrush, toothpaste (in dop kit),my food in a tupperware, apple banana, yogurt (inside a big ziplock bag), iPad (inside the laptop sleeve), and one book. As you can tell it can load quite a bit of stuff and still has room for some more stuff. It also has a side pocket in the front and a small pocket inside the main compartment for keys, wallet, coins etc.
What makes the r25 shine is the build quality and research they have put in making the pack; such as the straps that make the pack feel light and doesn't let the stuff shift inside while riding, the quick adjust straps as well as the quad lock system that hugs and contours to your body. Anthony was right, it definitely keeps the weight low and on your chest; weight is away from the shoulders and neck.when I ride with the r25 on, I bare feel like I am wearing a backpack. The materials used feel really durable, ykk zippers feel beefy and wont give out, and I can tell it will last a really long time. I aslo bought the Kube and I store my id badge, wallet and keys in there; No more rustling around trying to find my wallet or keys when putting gas at the gas station! Lastly, I love how Kriega thought of putting reflective components around the backpack for safety and visibility, it really helps when rising at night. Kriega backs up their product with a 10 year warranty, so you can tell they are serious about their products. Kriega has definitely outdone themselves, thanks Kriega!! Thanks also to Anthony for the great product review, that ultimately led me into buying this awesome product!!

Didn't buy it here, bought it at cycle gear since they have an exclusive design that AGV made specifically for them. But I want to do the product review here, because Revzilla is my favorite site on buying motorcycle gear!
I absolutely love this helmet! Very lightweight and flows a good amount of air that keeps me cool and dry. The only complaint would be the whistling noise in the back of the helmet, but it's not a big deal to me and not that loud of a whistle. Other than that it keeps the noise level pretty average. I think it's just how you position yourself on the bike. Great value for a great helmet. Can't go wrong with AGV!!

When I first got this glove it was a bit stiff, but once I broke it in, it became really comfortable. Love the protection it gives and pretty beefy protection on the lateral side. One complaint would be the strap, it gave out on me and snapped after having it only for 5 months. I called Revzilla and they told me to call Alpinestars and send it in because it would be a lot faster since I live near them here in California. Luckily, Alpinestars took it in and they replaced it. Other than that, it's a really great glove that offers a lot of protection for a short cuff glove. Also, offers a ton of airflow in the glove.
Revzilla team has great customer service, and Anthony gives great product reviews. Also, enjoy the Revzilla cash that you can use on your next purchase; fast shipping as well! I will keep my business here for all my motorcycle needs!

Loved this jacket a lot, until I saw that the stitching by my upper right arm was already going out; Maybe because I wear a backpack all the time, but that shouldn't affect it since it's Alpinestars quality; Only had this jacket for 5 months. Anyway, I called Revzilla and told me I should call Alpinestars and send it to them instead because it will be much faster. Luckily, Alpinestars offered to take it in and repair it. That's my only complaint, other than that it's a great looking jacket.
Great style to it and I always get lot of compliments about how nice it is. Very technical jacket, you can upgrade it with Alpinestars Back Protector and chest protector. Offers a lot of protection, but I knocked it one star down for durability of the stitching that gave out. Top reason I got this jacket is because I sweat a lot, therefore it flows a lot of air in the jacket and keeps me cool. No liner in it, but I just wear a thermal and I'm good to go in the winter time in Southern California of course.
Revzilla has awesome customer service and has fast shipping! Anthony has great reviews about each product. The best site for buying motorcycle gear!
