The Held Warm N Dry Glove is the choice for cold and wet weather riding. With Superfabric, reinforced knuckles,and high quality leather these comfortable gloves do not compromise protection! The Warm N Dry Gloves also work great with heated grips! The palm is thin enough to allow good feel for the controls and allow the grip heaters to warm your hands, while the lightly insulated back helps to hold in the heat and protect your hands from cold rain and windchill.

I own Held Air Hero's, size 9, fit perfect. Got these in 9, perfect fit, so quality control at Held is on point. I will simply list pros and cons..
Pros..Excellent materials, fit, and finish, including all stitching. Hard knuckle armor, and super fabric on palms. Gloves really do allow your hands to perspire through, no clammy hands here. Style as well, is really clean and tight, and the darker reflective material is cool touch.
Cons..I have since learned that these gloves were apparently designed for heated grips, so the palms are thinner to allow heat to come through. So I will take that into account. I was walking with them my first day wearing them out in 40 degree New York winter, minimal wind, and my hands were pretty darn cold, within about 15 to 20 minutes. So I was disappointed, truth be told, I was expecting more from the "Warm n Dry" name. But I guess it was designed properly for heated grips, which I don't use:( So these will be used in less than freezing weather, and I will have to own something else for the freezing days. I gave 4 out of 5 for protection, super fabric on the outer pinkies would have given 5, as pinkies tend to go on low sides. On a lesser note, I wish the tabs that attach the gloves together didn't hang off the glove, should be a way to clip it in each glove, out of the way, no biggee
Other than that, another great glove from Held that will get much use. And Revzilla always duh best!

REV'IT! Airwave Pants The perfect match for the REV'IT! Airwave jacket, these trousers are also great over-pants to wear on top of your jeans during summer commutes. The large air mesh panels allow for maximum cooling, but that's not all they're on and off in seconds, thanks to the long side zippers, which go all the way up to the hip. Reflective panels at the lower legs ensure great visibility at all times. Even more, the Knox Flexiform CE-approved armor is located in height adjustable pockets, allowing you to position the armour just the way you like it. Available in classic black or fresh silver. PROTECTION FEATURES Outer shell polyester 600D , PWRshell 500D stretch , PWRshell mesh , polyester rib Visibility laminated reflection at calf Protection fully perforated EVA foam at hips , Knox Flexiform CE protection at knees ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit tour fit , regular Adjustability adjustment straps at waist , adjustment tab at ankles Ventilation ventilation panels at legs Features easy entrance zipper at calf , adjustable protector pockets , short connection zipper , elastic at waistband Pockets slit pockets

It was a hot and sticky day in New York today, my first day to try out these pants. All my reviews of Rev'it gear have been stellar thus far. These pants absolutely maintain the high quality I've experienced from this brand. I wasn't as in love as I've been with everything else, but they are still an excellent choice. I will Explain... First, when you think summer pant, you think extremely light weight. And although I appreciate the added protection, these are not light weight pants. They actually feel pretty beefy. When I first put them on, I was inside my air conditioned home, and I could feel air flowing through as I walked around. However, on the bike, in the heat, I just felt like I was wearing the wrong season pants. I was sweating my @#%^$ off the whole ride. It could have something to do with the fact that my bikes fairing blocks quite a bit of the wind, and it was extremely humid. But a lot of the pant material is heavier guage-great for protection, but you will feel the heat. I would have rather worn jeans, with Icon knee/shin armor instead. Also, the knee armor is only slightly adjustable up/down, and on my 5'7" frame, the knee armor is below my knees, and the waist is a Jeane Claude Van Damme fit--meaning well above my belly button. Also, in a seated position, the crotch area was not roomy enough, if you get my meaning. I don't think it's the fault of Rev'it, I think I'm just a tough size to fit. But it would have been nicer if they gave you a few more inches up/down for knee armor, and more room for your privates. These would actually be my go to pants in the cooler weather. I'd say fall to some winter, especially as over pants. Buttons and zippers and materials are all first rate, still a great value.

I finally had a chance to ride with this on, so I could give an honest review. Once again, a home run. It was a chilly day in New York today, but I was comfortable at 70mph. I had all zippers closed, and jacket seems to keep any air from venting in. I did open the chest zippers, and the rear zipper, and this will cool you more, especially if you take out the inner lining, which I kept in for this ride. The outer pockets are spacious, secure, and easily accessible. The rubber coated snaps are a nice touch, look good and feel good on the fingers. Collar snaps securely and comfortably. Armor is well placed, nice and long elbow armor, securely placed, doesn't move around. Just replace the back armor with sas-tec and you're good. If I could change anything, it would be one detail with the color blocking. I'm always concerned with getting hit from the side, by someone running a red, or considering doing so. I think it would have been a smarter choice to have black on the inner arm, and the neon yellow on the outside, where it's currently black. Just one more degree of visibility. But other than that, it's perfect, very sharp looking, and as others stated, the color is visible from the moon. I will just use my Rev'it Airwave when it gets warmer. Also, the Held Air Hero gloves are awesome, I siched the jacket over them, great fit.

REV'IT! Women's Airwave Jacket Let the air in on those hot summer days, when the heat of the tarmac seems to burn right through the soles of your feet. There's just no excuse not to get on your bike when you have the REVIT Airwave ladies' jacket.

As always, this jacket is designed to fit the female form perfectly, with a flattering look and superior comfort. Available in 4 striking color combinations, to match either the black or daring white REVIT Airwave trousers.

My husband is the architect behind all our motorcycle gear, so he gets it, and I wear it. I am a professional clothing technical designer, and all of Rev'it gear is exceedingly well made. Quality materials, and exacting stitching, combined with high level YKK zippers, will ensure this jacket lasts. I really like the cut of this jacket, it still looks feminine, even with the built in armor. My husband replaced the armor with sas-tec, and I didn't even notice. It's nice to know I am well protected while we commute in and out of the city. Airflow is a big plus. A great jacket at a very reasonable price.

SAS-TEC Back Protector Cutting edge SAS-TEC material is intelligent armor constructed from visco elastic soft foam smart molecules. It has earned the highest CE rating available (CE level 2), during an impact, the armor freezes and hardens, absorbing the shock and distributing its force over a large area to reduce the risk of fractures. The protector is not destroyed by impact, but reverts back to its original state and maintains its capability to protect from multiple impacts. SAS-TEC Armor has a soft and pliable exterior (as opposed to rigid KNOX armor) which offers a great deal of comfort and mobility. This protector is anatomically designed and fitted to provide superior spine and back protection as well as the base of the neck /between the shoulder blades. SC-1/11 fits Women's Turbine Jacket SC-1/12 fits REV'IT! Cayenne Pro Jacket and Turbine Jacket REV'IT Gore-Tex Jackets have different shaped back protector pockets depending on the size of jacket, see the size chart for fitment information SC-1/16 should only be used for XYL or larger Gore-Tex Jackets SC-1/11 Measurements (approximate) Height 15 3/4 Width (at widest point) 13 Thickness 3/4 SC-1/12 Measurements (approximate) Height 19 Width (at widest point) 13 Thickness 3/4 SC-1/16 Measurements (approximate) Height 21 3/8 Width (at widest point) 13 3/8 Thickness 3/4

The old phrase "better to have it and not need it, then to need it and not have it," points to this product. I bought several of these for my Rev'it jackets. The smallest size fit my jackets without alteration, only had to cut slightly to fit my girl's jacket. This is military grade protection, originally designed to protect against explosion and concussive force. So this is what you want to protect your spine from serious damage. Would you spend 50.00 to keep yourself out of a wheelchair for life? If the answer is "yes," than this should be an easy one. I don't even know it's there, so there is no discomfort whatsoever. Just "mush it" to fit into the jacket back pocket, and it will re expand to it's shape, filling the compartment. Any size other than small will need to be cut to size. Truth be told, this is in my jacket, and I wear the icon stryker underneath it all. I figure if I went down at speed, I'd be real glad I did, so be it.

I bought these in size L, or "9" as they are listed. The fit is perfect. So important to note, I don't have long fingers, middle finger 3 inches from base, pointer 2.5, ring 2.75, pinky 2.25, and thumb 2 inches, and these fit with no excess length past my finger tips. So I'd have to say they run a bit short in terms of length. The ventilation is unreal. there is micro mesh at the base between all digits, and it feels like micro air conditioners blasting you. As well as venting through all the perf and through the slight openings in the knuckle armor, which is nice and rigid. The leather itself gives you great feel. I love knowing that super fabric is in primary areas, a major reason for me to buy these. No one plans on getting into an accident, but if you can imagine your skin hanging off your hands from a slide, you would be wise to own gear with super fabric, which could well prevent this. And that's worth far more than what you will invest in these great gloves. The cuff is really not wide enough for me to cinch the jacket sleeve inside, so expect to ratchet these down first, then the jacket over them. I gave the highest rating, except when it came to protection. If there was more padding in key impact points, then there would be nothing to criticize. But all in all, a terrific value, bought 'em for my girl as well, you will be pleased..And props always to the staff at Revzilla. Always very helpful, and shipping is insanely fast.

This jacket is so great looking in person. The construction and materials are first class, I spent over a month looking at this jacket online, and finally ordered one for me, and one of the lady's version for my girl. First on sizing. My lady is 5 feet tall, 115 lbs, and fit the 36 perfect. I'm 5'7, 190 solid pounds. I usually wear a size large, which I first ordered. It fit, but 2 key issues forced me to buy the extra large-I wear the Icon Stryker vest underneath, which made it too snug. Also, felt tight when reaching forward, like you would on an upright bike, which was surprising because I'm not tall. Extra large perfect. If you hold the jacket up to the light, you can pretty much see through it, so you know it's gonna flow tons of air. 2 zippered ample pockets on the outside, one zippered and one velcro pocket on inside, very nice. Neck is very comfortable, as is the whole package. I ordered the silver with neon yellow, which looks awesome, and will get you noticed, safe. Also, the reflective materials are extra reflective. And the front Rev'it logo is strong metal, very cool. I think that for 200.00, you are getting the most value possible. You will definitely want to replace the back pad. I bought the sas-tec, which is very light, but is of the highest order of comfort, and maximum protection. The smallest size sas-tec fits without alteration, it just doesn't completely fill out the upper left and right corners, but you will get a lot, and won't have to cut to fit. Extremely happy. And once again, ordering from Revzilla is awesome, everything happens so quick. Orders arrive fast, and returns are processed immediately. Unreal.
