Awesome pair of gloves for the price. I've used these for several long rides and they hold up well. They do need a break in period as it's just now that they're loosening up. Initially caused fatigue in my hands even though I tend to be light on the bars but that can also be attributed to not being broken in yet.
Typical Alpinestar fitting here. They run slightly smaller than other brands so you're more than likely going to have to get a size up.

Bang for the Buck
Protection & Durability
Bought these somewhere else since Revzilla didn't have my size but wanted to give me 2cents here because this site is my GO TO place to buy gear.
These pants are GREAT! They fit a little bit big than jeans but they have an adjustment strap on the front with plenty of room of adjustment. Good padding/armor at the right places, the included pucks are nice (unlike the mercury version). Air flow isn't all that great since it isn't perforated but once at speed, I can't complain.
Haven't had the chance to test out it's protection/durability...and hopefully I never will.
REV'IT! 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 REV'IT Airwave jacket. It allows for maximum airflow to keep you cool, whilst keeping you well protected with a combination of durable PWR shell fabric at the impact zones and strong mesh fabric at the chest, back, and arms. Available in 5 striking color combinations, to match either the black or silver Airwave trousers. PROTECTION FEATURES Outer shell polyester 600D , PWRshell mesh , Lorica reg, polyester rib , polyester 600D EN471 Visibility laminated reflection at upper arms and back Protection fully perforated EVA foam at back , Knox Flexiform CE protection at shoulders and elbows , CE prepared for Knox Advance X CE back protector ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit tour fit , regular Adjustability adjustment straps at hips, adjustment tabs at collar, upper arms and cuffs Ventilation ventilation panels at chest, back and arms Features jeans loop, short connection zipper Pockets inner pockets, slit pockets Please Note The size small Airwave jacket only accepts the Ladies Knox TP2 back protector . All other sizes of the Airwave take the standard Knox TP2 back protector . Additional Note The shoulders and side accent panels on the Silver/Neon and Silver/Red colorways are black, not dark grey as shown in product images.
I was a bit wary of buying a jacket online as I have no idea how Rev'it fits. I watched the video and sized myself and compared it with their size chart. I would say they're true to size. Arm length was actually a bit on the longer side but I prefer them that way. In my opinion, it makes them more comfortable in a riding position. Airflow is EXCELLENT. Right now it gets to about high 60s/low 70s and I actually get a bit chilled on the bike so I have to wear a sweater/thermal underneath it along with a shirt. I'm sure once the Socal summer hits, I won't need the extra layers. Needless to say, I doubt I'll be sweating in this jacket unless i'm at a dead stop.
The jacket is very stylish. If Rev'it made a version for everyday casual wear, I'd wear it!
Highly Recommended. I just bought the matching pants, I guess I'll make a review of that as well in conjunction with this. YKK zipper, don't fail me now!
