This vest is great, stays in place. I wore it first time for two days at Code's CA superbike school in WillowSprings. It fit nice under my Spidi RR Wind Pro suit. I didn't know I had it on, didn't add any weight, heat, or flexibility issues.
The only minor issue I have with it is getting my arms out the suit. The back of the suit will "stick" or get caught on top of the vest's back protector. You can get out, but having a buddy just pull your suit over the back protector is easier. Other than that the vest is a great buy and versatile. I will be wearing it for street riding under my street jacket.

MotoGP experience and technology is transferred directly into production with the leather Wind Pro suit. The goal is to provide the sportbike rider with the thrill and the performance of the racing life. Many aspects have undergone development the reduction of leather surface replaced by stretch Tenax over key areas, thus further improving fit, air penetration and general comfort. Essential construction is aimed at weight reduction, freedom of movement and reducing reaction times. The total weight being 4.5 Kg, makes it one of the lightest cowhide suits. 1.2/1.4mm thick Italian produced cowhide. Vented cowhide to help transpiration without compromising safety levels. Leather stretches on shoulders, back and knee. Wide Tenax Flex stretch areas. Neoprene cuffs, collar and ankles. CE Biomech on crash sensible areas, all beneath a double layer of leather. Multitech adjustable knee protectors with about 10cm range. Back warrior, Chest Warrior-ready inner pockets. Sliders included. Hydroback-ready racing hump.

You need the smaller pads, but having to pay Shoei for them is a joke.

**My 3 star ranking is due to the shaft we are getting from Shoei**
I buy most of my gear from revzilla, but bought my latest helmet from local bike shop. I tried helmets on at their store, so I wanted to give them some biz. Right away I asked guy about the fish face, he said they might break in, but not much. I laughed and asked the rhetorical- "Am I going to have to buy smaller pads?" He said, "Yup".
1. No blame of 'zillas, great store as usual
2. Smaller pads were needed, work great
3. Shoei has quite the scam going with I imagine 80%+ of us having to shell out another $40+ for smaller pads after dropping $400+ on the helmet. Exchanges on pads for new helmet purchase should be the protocol.

Just a simple water-proof jacket to throw over. I don't have anything for water-proof summer. never have, probably never will. Nothing is water-proof and cool(air/temp cool). So to find that summer jacket that is really water-proof, good luck.
My goal has always been to just have the water-proof gear during summer available to throw on when needed. That is what this jacket is- keep me dry when needed, not expensive.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I reviewed many summer jackets. This wasn't an impulse buy since it was a "higher-priced" jacket for a close-out price. This will be my first Revit purchase, other gear like Dainese is what I own. I will look again to Revit for my next item purchase.
I read many reviews from fellow riders on revzilla and other sites. My only concern was if it would fit. According to everything I read, I should have been in a size 54. I am 6'1, 200 lbs. I finally decided to place the order and 54 was gone...So I went with the 56 and fits great. Fits slender like I expected wanted. So for anyone researching, that probably isn't going to help you out when you see my definitions and others with similar saying to go with a 54.
Jacket looks great, plenty of air, feels great, wife loves it as well. i recommend getting some armor for the back, foam just left me feeling empty on the back. I took armor out of my heavy jacket and going to use it in the interim.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I researched many brands for a good all around boot for street and possible track riding. I went with the water-proof version as well. Great protection clearly present. For the money, this is best bang for the buck.
Yes, I recommend this product.
