Fit size, right on.
Shape, Narrow/medium.
Broke these in walking around work the last week and after the second day on they proved to be very comfortable. As with all boots/ shoes I had to ditch the insole for some Dr. Scholl's as the original provided little support for my flat feet. I did not notice the squeaking being as intrusive as in other review but rather a dull whisper of rubber rubbing on rubber, and that was at home in dead quiet. I did spray both with waterproofing conditioner before wearing so this may have deadened the sound.
The flat sole provides easy movement on the pegs and provide just enough flex for easy brake and clutch actuation. Also deaden vibration I feel thru my harder sole boots. Very warm, I got these for fall/winter/spring riding and they'll work great for this.
Highly recommended and exception bang for the buck.

Rides into the 30's to low 40's at highway speeds you'll want heated gloves, as I have tried $50 to $250 non-heated glove and none have worked well at those temps. But these do a good job of keeping my hands warm for short 15-20min rides in those temperature ranges. My commute is 40 minutes at highway speed and these did fine on a 45 degree and 48 degree day but as expected not so good when it was 37.
Construction is very good and fit was spot on. Neoprene on wrists provide great seal and windproof gauntlets pull cord construction is heavier duty then other gloves I have owned. I really like Fly products and recommend this glove highly. If you need better cold weather protection for longer rides when the temps are 40 and below I recommend Fly Ignitor Heated Glove.

I replace my face shield yearly, this will be my 3rd replacement for my EXO1100. fit is as good as the original, anti-fog is exception, and field of view is distortion free. Love the quick snap on snap off design and the locking feature.

I am 6"4", medium build with gorilla arms. Most manufactures unfortunately do not make a long version in the Jacket I would buy. I have alway had to compromise with style and by getting a size bigger then needed to get longer arm length.
From reviews and the video I took a chance and it payed of. This jacket has a snug fit a riding jacket should have and plenty of length in the arms, constructions is great as is the appearance.
Air flow is superb, and the inner lining not only works great in the rain but surprisingly blocks the wind to help keep you warm as it gets cool. A+++
2 problems with the Hooligan 2 Mesh, didn't purchase from Revzilla and had to pay restock fee to return and fit as well as finish was not up to the $180 price tag.

I have long narrow feet, these fit very well. Got back from a 3 day road trip, lots of riding and lots of walking with no problems. I read the reviews about inadequate protection and all I can say is if you didn't pay attention to the video review then you have no one to blame but yourself, while these have some rudimentary protection there design is for comfort. That they do very well. The heel is design very well, I felt little fatigue after a days riding as I did when wearing tennis shoes. I sprayed them with sealer, look in the tent or shoe section, which kept me dry in the rain but still allow for great airflow.

Fit is a little snug heel to toe but not bad, I have narrow feet so width is excellent, I wear a size 12-13 depending on mfg., so consider going 1/2 size up if you do not like a snug fit. I prefer a snug fit on my riding boots though. As always Puma delivers on style and quality.

Fit was spot on I and the ability to pump up the cheeks is going to be a plus in the future as that is where both my previous helmets started to get loose. To us normal guys who only buy new helmets every few years, some will consider the fit on the helmet a little snug. Give it a couple wears before trading up in size as the difference in how this helmet fits is in how it hugs every spot on your head, the Scorpion fits like a winter hat while my older helmets fit like a good base-ball cap.
Wow is this thing light!! My Arai and CL-14 HJC feel like lead weights in comparison.
In side visor works great and was plenty dark enough as this Michigan winter sun is very bright. With cold weather gloves the visor lock and unlock toggle is hard to find but with use it should get easier.
Fogging was not a problem even after riding in 40deg. weather for 2 hours this weekend. Lots of air, I opened all vents and my head instantly froze so those seem to function very well!! Using just the chin vent worked well in this cold weather.
I was with several friends and all commented on the look of the Scorpion and graphics, AA+. I find it hard to see any value in helmets prices above $300 any more and this is a great example why.
