REV'IT! Pacific H2O Rain Suit In developing the Pacific H20 rain suit, one of REV'IT!'s main goals was to make it easy to put on in just a few seconds about the time it takes you to get soaked during a heavy shower. Mission accomplished. The solution lies not only in the long, diagonal front closure, but especially in the newly developed, non-stick, PVC-free coating on the inside of the Power Nylon outer shell. The result is a 100 waterproof, breathable, and very practical all-weather companion that will meet the demands of any rider. Convenient features include a storage pocket on the upper leg. For safety, reflection panels on the shoulders and lower legs ensure great visibility. If you need to stand out in traffic even more, the Pacific H2O comes in a high-visibility neon yellow option. PROTECTION FEATURES Outer shell PVC-free PWROxford with PU coating, PVC-free PWROxford EN471 with PU coating (in Neon Yellow color only) Waterproofing 100 waterproof Composition 100 polyester (100 polyurethane coating) Visibility reflection at shoulders and legs, reflective logo at chest and back ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit tour fit, regular Adjustability adjustment tabs at upper arm, cuffs and ankles Features PVC-free XL front zipper Elastic at waistline Includes transport bag Stash pocket on left leg EN343 certified

As other reviewers have pointed out, there is a terrible seam directly in the crotch which will fail during the first real rainstorm. Driving down the freeway in normal to heavy rain, you will be greeted with a torrent of cold water directly where you don't want it.
Since this was the first time I wore it (ever) after having purchased it for emergencies or rains beyond my normal jacket's capabilities, I am not sure what recourse I will have with RevZilla or Revit.

back protector fits great in the Dainese jackets. Covers nearly the whole spine with strong shell. Never ridden one down, but I'm sure I'll be glad I have it if I ever do.

Dainese Air-Frame Textile Jacket Focus Continued comfort under changing weather conditions with excellent ventilation is hard to achieve in a ventilated jacket because whenever the temperature drops, the wearer immediately feels cold. In this case, the Dainese Air Frame offers the best solution by combining the ventilation achieved by ample inserts in mesh with protection against cold air offered by a remarkably lightweight windcheating insert. Provided with ample adjustment possibilities, jacket-pants fastening zip, homologated protectors and a pocket for a G-type back protector, this versatile jacket also comes in a ladies version. Features Removable composite protectors certified to EN 1621.1/97 Standard Boomerang fabric Quick Dry fabric Mesh fabric. Neck adjustment Waist adjustment Wrist adjustment Sleeve volume adjustment Jacket-trousers fastening system Removable wind-breaker liner Sanitized lining Pocket for Dainese Wave G1 and G2 Reflective inserts 2 outside pockets Internal pocket

Best airflow on any jacket. WIth a pair of Dainese pants, it is a match made in heaven! I also added the G2 back protector. Have the air drake pants and the whole setup is phenomenal. Riding in 90+ regularly and high humidity. Lots of airflow!
Jacket looks great and the neck snaps are big enough to accommodate a larger neck (as mine).
I bought a 56 (have a 44" chest and am 6' )

Shoei Neotec Modular Helmet Evolving on previous designs, Shoei has revamped its modular helmet style with a streamlined and attractively sculpted shape that conveys the feel of freely moving through the outdoors in the Neotec Modular Helmet. Overall shell size is kept compact by incorporating the internal sun visors open/close mechanism inside all ventilation mechanisms are shaped and positioned in such a way as to reduce any possible drag. A redesigned aerodynamic spoiler also helps to cut lift, reducing neck strain on long, cross country rides. In the Shoei Neotec all these features combine to create a premium helmet that excels in appearance, protection, comfort and performance. The Shoei Neotec Helmet's chin bar is connected to the same axis point and mechanism as its shield, minimizing extra parts. This also enables simultaneous closing of the shield with the chin bar, which is then held in place with an easy-open lock release button. The shield lock system offers secure closure or the ability to keep the shield slightly open to allow for increased airflow. With the Shoei Neotec Helmet, Shoei now includes a built-in sun shield, the QSV-1. The visor tucks neatly away beneath a non-intrusive shell built into the helmets liner, and can be lowered with the easy control of a sliding button. Shoei Neotec Helmet Features Face Shield Features Easily operable lever mechanism Anti-fog, anti-scratch, 99 UV blocking New Pinlock-ready CNS-1 faceshield Wider and taller than the CX-1V that it replaces Includes Pinlock insert 3D injection molding process ensures a distortion-free view Improved Ventilation and Aerodynamics Newly designed vortex generators pull air through helmet 276 more airflow than Multitec Added inlets and outlets Vents are flush against helmet to maintain aerodynamics 5-Ply Shock-Absorbing Fiber Shell 3 shell sizes AIM Multi-Composite construction Lightweight yet strong Shell-integrated spoiler reduces lift and drag during high-speed riding Dual EPS Liner Multi-density EPS for optimal protection Two vents funnel fresh air through the EPS liner Dual liner channels route and disperse air evenly throughout the helmet EPS liner in chin bar All new interior Fully removable 3D interior liner Top center pad is removable and washable Improved cheekpad design allows better fit with eyeglasses Included chin curtain can be inserted into the chin bar to reduce turbulence and noise All Neotec Helmets sold in the US have a double D-ring closure Note Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States

I've been riding with it for a few weeks; really good features, not that much louder (not so I could notice) Than my Arai full face vector. Had to get 1 size smaller cheek pads, they compress a bit when the mask is down. All in all great helmet, highly recommended
Yes, I recommend this product.

I have high arches, wide (EE) feet. These fit fantastically. They were comfortable right out of the box, and if you wear a tall sock, you won't know they are there.
Definitely recommended for anyone with high arches or wider feet. I wear a 10.5 and the 44 is the perfect size.
Yes, I recommend this product.
