I have a complete Wolfman Rainier tank bag with may extras like the bigger side and top pockets. Outstanding bag in all respects!! I bought the tool bag as an add-on to a small order to meet the minimum freight and to use up some Revzilla credits. The only thing that I noted was the that the tool slots are a bit uneven in width; you could tell that a person was sewing and estimating the distance. No biggie and other than that, it is a rugged bag that will serve the purpose. And best of all, it's MADE IN THE USA!! Keep up the good work Wolfman!!

Have yet to use the product; still in the snow zone.
I want to comment about the sizing, however. It is very true to size. I bought an XL and there is plenty of wiggle room in it.
Also, good basic bang for the buck.

I bought these pads to replace the flimsy armor that was in my Cheyenne pro pants.
I had to trim to fit. However, I was really impressed with the size and configuration of the pads. Wish they had fit "as-is" into the pockets of my pants.

TCX Infinity GTX Boot As close to perfect as it gets, the TCX Infinity Gore-Tex Boot has been a staple of the TCX line up for years. This boot was inspired by famed TCX riders Cyril Despres and Marc Coma for adventure touring. A full grain leather upper with Gore-Tex lining provide unrivaled comfort and durability. This boot has been an editor pick since the beginning. Comfort Fit System (CFS) TCX products in the Touring Range are manufactured using techniques that ensure a high quality fit the Comfort Fit System (form moulding), through which the upper is shaped on a mould that reproduces the anatomy of the human foot. The Touring Range is therefore extremely versatile and high quality, with high tech products that can also be used casually and in the city. Full Grain Leather The uppers of the TCX Touring range are made using full grain leather. This is the most valuable part of the leather, which is specially treated and rendered waterproof. The result is an upper in a natural material that gives exceptional performance in terms of protection from atmospheric agents, breathability and fit. Gore-Tex Membrane The application of the Gore-tex membrane offers an optimal combination of breathability and insulation, granting the feet to stay warm and dry, never sweaty even in extreme conditions. The durable waterproof protection stops moisture from seeping in. Technical Details Upper full grain leather Lining GORE-TEX membrane Protections malleolous protection, shift pad, leather coated shin plate and inner thermo contoured protection Color Black Closure 2 polyurethane adjustable buckles Sole touring sole, oil and petrol resistant with specific grip area Sizes EU 38-48 US 7-13 CE Certified

I am a 60 year old GSA rider who rides the rough and twisty roads of western PA, fireroads where I can find them, but I'm not the all-day adventure guy. These boots were recommended to me by Revzilla's Jason.
Unfortunately, we are still in the frozen tundra, but I have worn them around the house to break them in. They breathe with the GoreTex; I like the stiffness especially, since I am used to wearing heavy-duty Italian hiking boots; I like the flat sole, which will not get tangled with the rough foot-pegs; they are more flexible than the Sidi Adventure boots and yet still possess more than adequate protection for the kind of riding that I do and that most people probably do, too.
They are true to size. I'm just over an 11, but chose the 11 and they are fine. The toe-box is a bit big, so I tried an insert, but in the end, after they break in a bit more, I will wear them as they come out of the box; more toe wiggle room when you ride all day.
I will need to adjust the gear-shift on my bike, but not by much.
Patiently waiting to get rid of my PMS (Parked Motorcycle Syndrome) :-)
Thanks Jason and Revzilla for this recommendation to me.

 REV'IT! Cayenne Pro Pants
REV'IT! Cayenne Pro Pants
REV'IT! Cayenne Pro Pants When REV'IT introduced the new Cayenne Pro Jacket , they were tasked with developing an equally strong pair of pants the CAYENNE PRO pants. All of the product improvements incorporated in the jacket, such as weight reduction, improved insulation properties and stitch reducing laminated reflection and Super fabric panels have also been incorporated in the new CAYENNE PRO textile pants. These pants can be zipped to the jacket by a short or an all around 360 degree connection zipper. For the serious commuter or adventure / touring rider, this is the pair of pants that will fulfill your needs . Available in standard, long and short leg lengths, the Cayenne Pro Pants will zip with any current model men's REV'IT Jacket. While made to work specifically with the Cayenne Pro Jacket, the Cayenne Pro Pants also function very well when paired with the REV'IT Sand Jacket or REV'IT Dragon Jacket. PROTECTION FEATURES Outershell DuPont Cordura 500D, DuPont Cordura1000D, SuperFabric Insulation detachable Exkin lining Protection SAS TEC CE protection, Temperfoam hippadding, double textile seat Waterproofing detachable REVIT! Hydratex 3-layer membrane Breathability detachable REVIT! Hydratex 3-layer membrane Visibility laminated reflective panels ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit pre-shaped close fit Adjustability adjustable waist, stretch panels at the knee and back Ventilation ventilation zippers on the upper leg Features short and long connection zipper Pockets 2 slit pockets A commonly asked question we get is what is the difference between the Cayenne Pro Pants and the Sand Pants Both are high-end 4-season pants, but the difference is in the materials used. The Cayenne Pro's use an Exkin thermal liner, shown to have half the weight / thickness of the Dupont liner in the Sand Pants. The Cayenne Pro's use SAS-TEC armor, and the Sand uses Pro-Life and while both are CE level 2, the SAS-TEC armor is softer (only turning hard on impact) and more comfortable. The last major difference is the use of SuperFabric on the impact areas in the Cayenne Pro.

$$$ prompted me to purchased these pants and the jacket too.
Runs small. I am an XL and got the XXL and it's still a bit snug.
Well constructed; good armor. The warmth layer is very thin in comparison to other products and here in western PA, I am sure that I will use that in the early spring and late fall.
Lastly, I added a Velcro tab to the top enclosure. They only have one snap and without a belt, there is too much stress on that one connection.

Of course, I'd would have liked to have a GoreTex shell, but $$$ prompted me to purchased this jacket (and pants).
Very small. I am an XL and got the XXXL.
Well constructed; good armor (did add the upgrade for the back). The warmth layer is very thin in comparison to other products and here in western PA, I am sure that I will use that in the early spring and late fall.

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

Puchased this to insert into my Cheyenne Pro jacket. Have yet to use (PMS - Parked Motorcycle Syndrome) here in western PA during January.
Appears to be very rugged and functional. I did put the foam that came with the jacket against my back in hopes of better air-flow.

I bought a pair of the Rev'IT curbs last year; great glove, but short cuff. I wanted a waterproof glove with some more protection. I bought the Alpinstar Jet Road and nearly sent them back because they do lack the protection that I was looking for, but decided to keep them due to the sale price so I'd have a goretex glove when needed.
I continuted to look for more of a racing glove for the protection even though I'm just a GSA touring, semi-off roader driver. One of the reps told me about the dual purpose Held Air and Dry. Great concept, great glove, and adequate protection for my type of riding.
Also, I'm still happy to have the Alpinstars. The first day I rode with the Held gloves, it was 42-45 degrees and drizzling. It was almost too cold for them; the Alpinstars would have been better suited for the day; my guess is that they'll be good down to 35ish. Cold here in western PA:-(
A bit on the high side in price, but for two in one and I do think that they'll be fine in our hotter weather with the perforated palms + high quality + true to american fit.
Give them a try!!!

These are my first pair of technical gloves. I ride a KLR and a GSA, but am not a cowboy on either of the bikes. I'm concerned with safety.
I purchased the Monster's and upon receipt, not only did I think that they were a bit large (I ordered an XL), but I also felt that the protection, other than the knuckles, was not much better than what I had been wearing. FOR THE EXTRA TWENTY BUCKS, THESE ARE MORE THAN WORTH IT!!
The downside is that I listened to Anthony who said that the sizing was right on, so I ordered a large. I wish that I would have ordered a L and XL to decide on the best fit. As it turns out after a few weekends of riding, fisting and wetting the gloves and just breaking them in, my guess is that I would be a L+, but that is not an option. On hot days and we have had several already this spring in the western mountains of PA, when your hands are a bit swollen and damp to begin with, they are harder to get into. In due time, they will be fine, but I caution you regarding what I found on the sizing.
Other than the minor sizing issue, I think that the gloves are great. Well made, good protective features for the average rider like me.
Buy them and enjoy them!!
