I bought these to replace the foam hip pads in my Rev'it! tornado pants. They fit with no trimming. As typical forcefield armor goes, it's stiff when you first put your pants on but after it warms up and contours to your hips you barely even know they're there. The only downside for some is that,depending on your riding position, the new pads might make it a little uncomfortable to have anything in your front pant pockets. For any safety conscious rider out there this is a must buy!
Yes, I recommend this product.

I've had these for over a year now and they are still going strong. Fantastic air flow. Just the right amount of protection with Kevlar in the palm, which was a big selling point for me. They do run about a half a size small. I ignored this and got my usual medium glove size because I have small hands anyway. They ended up being just OKAY in the fit. Small to start out with and stretched a LITTLE as the season went on. They're tolerable now with the only problem area being the thumb. If I don't adjust after a while the thumb gets sore from being too tight and pushing on the seam. But obviously that's my own fault. Awesome gloves! Highly recommend!

Forcefield Back Protector Pro Kevlar L2K The award winning and best-selling Forcefield Back Protector Pro L2 has evolved into the all new Pro L2K (Kevlar) and is now constructed using Kevlar thread for increased strength and durability. Kevlar has 5 times the tensile strength of steel along with high cut and abrasion resistance and ensures the strongest back protector available just got stronger! Combined with NitrexEvo a unique high-tech triangular shock absorbing material the Forcefield Pro L2K (Kevlar) back protector is designed to be soft, flexible and comfortable whilst still providing maximum impact protection and conforms to, and exceeds the CE test EN1621-22003 Level 2 the highest possible level. NitrexEvo provides Repeat Performance Technology (RPT) to ensure that even after multiple impacts there is no loss of protective performance and 3D moulds to closely fit the contours of the riders back creating the ultimate in all day comfort. The Pro L2K is constructed in multiple layers that are stitched and perforated in such a way as to allow partial movement of the inner layers. This movement has a dual purpose, to make the protector more comfortable by allowing it to mould to the body shape and to pump air through the multiple perforations to build up and ventilate between the back when in use. Fully adjustable shoulder straps and double waist adjustment ensure a correct fit for different body shapes and sizes. The ultimate all use motorcycle back protector from Forcefield Body Armour. Features CE Level 2 protection Cambridge Certified Repeat performance technology Comfortable and nonrestrictive Reassuringly solid yet slim-line fitting Multi-impact (will not lose its strength halfway through a crash) Breathable Lightweight Flexible Molds to your body shape Can be worn under outer clothing with ease Multi-sport back protector Fully adjustable for that perfect fit

I went back and forth on whether to go with a back insert or the L2K to replace the foam in my Revit tornado jacket. I decided on the L2K for several reasons. 1) It had coverage for the tail bone. 2) I could wear it under any jacket I buy in the future and wouldn't need to cut it. 3) It will stay put in the event of a crash vs an insert. As far as comfort goes, I just came back from a weekend ride where I was on the bike for hours at a time. I didn't have any issues with it. No sore spots or uncomfortableness while riding. It starts out a little stiff when you put it on but once it warms up it contours to your body and fits nicely. For anybody who is looking to upgrade their foam and does a lot of out of town riding/commuting and is safety conscious, this is a must have.

Bell Vortex Attack Helmet The Attack Helmet sports another military inspired graphic in the Bell Vortex Helmet line. This graphic is available either in gray scale or red/white/gray and features raised graphics along the seam lines. Bold stripes along the back of this helmet serve a dual purpose as a design element and to boost visibility via their reflectivity. Bell Vortex Helmets provide a lot of value for your dollar because they are packed with features also seen in their big brother the Star. Check out the features listed below and you will see why these helmets are the complete package. Features Velocity Flow Ventilation system with FlowAdjust for maximum stability and temperature control with minimal noise and buffeting Lightweight composite polycarbonate alloy shell Contour cheek pads (by means of stacked foam, not hand cut) Removable and washable, antibacterial/antimicrobial interior comfort liner Padded Wind collar to drastically reduce wind/road noise Integrated speaker pockets for audio speakers ClickRelease for the fastest, easiest, tool-free shield swaps ever Clear NutraFog II superior anti-fog, anti-scratch and UV protected shield. Dark tint and other shields available for purchase separately Padded chin strap with D-ring closure and strap keeper Five-year warranty Approximate weight 1600g Comes with clear faceshield only Certification Snell M2010, DOT Our Opinion of the The Bell Vortex Helmet The Bell Vortex Helmet has grown to be one of the top selling and more ubiquitous 200 sport helmets in the RevZilla family. The light weight, Snell Rating and ability to use the Bell Photochromic shield allow the Bell Vortex Helmet to cover a lot of the bases the typical sport or track day rider is looking for in a reasonably priced helmet. Many times we see this type of functionality only available in helmets over the 300 mark. In the 3/4 or tuck position the Bell Vortex Helmet will provide a great solution in just about any spirited or sport riding scenario. If you find a graphic or color that suits your taste and you have an intermediate oval head shape, the Bell Vortex is a great option.

As a new rider I don't have anything to compare to but I will give my own experience.
Riding in 90+ degree heat I found it flowed plenty of air to keep my head cool. Shutting all the vents in sub 50 degree weather kept air flow to almost zero.
I can't really comment on wind noise as I haven't worn another helmet riding. What I can say is it's not deafening but at 65+ mph I might grab some ear plugs if I plan on highway riding for any extended periods.
I have a round head and face and found it very comfortable. I went with inches for my first measurement and the helmet was a little big as it just put me in an XL. I remeasured in CM's and it just put me into a large and it fit me perfect.
I was happy to see that the actual color of the red is darker than the picture that revzilla uses.
