First off I want to say that I do like this jacket. I have been purchasing First Gear products exclusively since the mid 90’s. I don’t mind paying a bit more for a First Gear product even knowing there are less expensive options out there as First Gear always provided superior products that were well made with the rider in mind.
But this jacket is produced with snaps on the cuffs and waist. Really, working a snap with a gloved hand? Where is the Velcro and the infinite adjustments that go with it. This is a letdown for me and why I gave this jacket 4 stars instead of 5.
It’s not that I won’t buy a First Gear product again; it’s just that I will perform a closer inspection of the amenities and I will no longer by on faith alone.
Rides: 2012 BMW R1200GS
Yes, I recommend this product.

Givi AF330 Windscreen R1200GS 04-10 This stylish, well-constructed replacement windscreen features improved height and shape with top-notch quality. Mounts in minutes using stock fasteners. Features clear tint and precision-cut shape. Overall height is 21.5 (750mm) maximum width is 23.6 (600mm), approximately 4 inches (10cm) taller than the original screen. Specific sliding wind-screen, transparent, complete with fitting kit. Maximum height 78 cm (12 cm of extension) width 58 cm AIRFLOW is the most versatile Givi windshield to date. The adjustable spoiler allows the rider on the fly to easily and quickly make adjustments. Made of transparent polycarbonate, the adjustable spoiler is infinitely adjustable along the 4.7 (12cm) of travel. Once the desired setting has been selected a simple and secure clamp will keep it in place. The design of the AIRFLOW system creates an aerodynamic effect that eliminates turbulence, allowing for maximum protection from wind thus reducing rider fatigue. Another important feature is the ability to reduce AIRFLOW to the rider to increase driving safety while raining the spoiler effect reduces and, can at times, eliminate rain from collecting on the visor and reducing vision. During the warmer days the AIRFLOW spoiler, can easily be removed allowing travel with only the lower part of the windshield as well. Please Note Fit Kit is included with this windscreen.

If you’re like me, you have purchased many windscreens over the years in search of the perfect one. And like me you probably have several aftermarket screens that did not fit the bill and they are now in your personal bone yard.
This is the screen that you have been looking for! It is very quiet, good quality and easy to install. It will greatly improve the riding experience of any rider whose height is within 5 inches plus or minus my height of 6’1”.
I ride a 2012 R1200gs and the engineering and design is perfect. It fits and works like a factory screen and the noise reduction is incredible. I could probably ride without earplugs for most an all day ride.
Plus with Revzilla’s generous return policy you have nothing to lose but the perfect ride.
Buy this screen and you will have no regrets. Once you try it, you will never buy anything else.
