Wow. I love these gloves. First off, the fit: My palms measures 8-1/4” in relation to the sizing chart, so I chose size LG. The fit is exact across my hand, and the finger length and fit is perfect with the exception of an extra 3/8 to 1/2” of room at the end of the fifth finger (pinky). The general consensus is that they fit a little on the large size, but for me they are right on. They are a little snug at the wrist joint and very stiff, but that's to be expected as all leather gloves are going to be snug initially. I love the pre-curve in the fingers, makes for a better riding position/feel. The knuckle guard sits in the correct place and inspires confidence as do the guards over the DIP and PIP Joints. The gloves are a little warm, especially in Az, but I expected to give up a little comfort for the added protection. Now that I’ve been wearing the gloves for a couple of weeks, they’re beginning to break in and give a better feel on the controls. The guards on the fingers did bother me a little at first, but have since become less noticeable. The palm slider does tend to alter the hand position (pronation) on the throttle a bit. As far as looks are concerned, they’re very sporty.
Just like the other Revit gear I own, these gloves seem to speak quality, from the stitching to the velcro to the placement of each panel. You can tell just looking at them that they’re well made. I checked out some gloves in my local store (they didn't sell Revit) and it was all wanna be junk. If protection and quality is high on your list, then these gloves should be a consideration.

Bought this as my first mesh jacket. Very comfortable jacket to wear and has excellent air flow. Riding in 95+ degree weather is very pleasant (with the removable liner out). Temps below 60 degrees require a sweater, because the cool air just sails through it. I'm 6' 2", 185 lbs. and chose size LG. Fits me well. Arm length is good, right to the end of the wrist with arms in riding position. The pockets are spacious and zippers work well. Collar on the Coolpro does not abrade the neck like some other mesh jackets do. The armor in the elbows, back and shoulders seem to be adequate. I wear a full length Dainese back protector under the jacket without a problem. The silver/black combination looks very sporty without being overdone. I have another better, more expensive mesh jacket, but this is the one I wear the most. Buy it! This is a great jacket for a nominal fee.

Okay, these are definitely not going to be a "hot" weather pant. Anything over 70 degrees, forget it. Five minutes after I put them on I was sweating like crazy and I hadn’t left my air-conditioned house. By the time I got to work I was soaked and the outside temp was only 81 degrees. I’m dreading the ride home this afternoon at 104 degrees. They’re going in the closet until late fall. Now about the pants themselves, they are very sporty looking and seem to be of good construction. Love the padding in the hips. While riding they were relatively cool, flowed some air. Found the knees to be a little tight in the seated position and pulling them up didn’t help much. The knee armor stayed nicely in place and didn’t move around. I’m 6’2” and ordered a size LG. The fit is similar to a pair of jeans in the correct size. I think an XL would have been a little baggy. The last pant I ordered was too baggy, made me feel like I was about to go snowmobiling. So it’s been a $xxx experiment and I still haven’t found a summer riding pant that works for AZ.

This is the first time I’ve used a back protector. In terms of sizing I’m 6’2” so I ordered the 13 LG according to the Dainese sizing guide. On me the protector runs level with the top of my shoulders and extends down to my tailbone (Coccyx). It fits nicely under both my Revit Airwave jacket and CoolPro Mesh Jacket. When moving, there is adequate airflow around and down the back when riding in 95 degree weather. However, we'll see how it feels when the 110 degree temps arrive. For the most part it's not noticeable, but occasionally it gives me the feeling of wearing a back pack. I bought this back protector because I wanted the maximum protection possible. It gives me a feeling of security to the point that I won't ride without it…should have had one on sooner. I think I got my moneys worth. Hopefully, I'll never find out.
Other Thoughts: I think it would have been better to use a non-elastic shoulder strap, as these will eventually wear and stretch out, especially with the extreme heat.
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.

I am very pleased with the quality and workmanship of the jacket. The material is sturdy and the seams appear well put together. No frayed ends. The fit of the jacket is right on and provides adequate air flow for temps. around 85 F. Since I live in Arizona, the real test will come when we break 100. I'm 6'2", 34" waist and 180 pounds, so I chose size LG. There's room for a light sweater for cooler morning commutes. Arm length is generous and doesn't leave a huge gap between your gloves and the cuff when bent at the elbows. The armor in the elbows and shoulder seems to be adequate, but I hope I never find out for sure. It would be nice if it came with the Knox back protection, but I ride with a Dainese protector anyway, so not that big of a deal. Also, this is a sharp looking jacket, very sporty, but not over-done. This is a great jacket for $200...so far. Quality, quality, quality.
