I purchased one of these bags to fit into my 45 L Touratech Pannier. I need it to pack a few clothes in for short trips when I'm not using my large tail-mounted soft bag. I recently took it on a weekend trip to Everglades City and It works great. It's just the right size for a couple a changes of clothes and a dopp kit. It has separate zippered compartments inside the lid for socks, underwear, whatever. It's easy to drop into the pannier then grab it and walk into the hotel when you arrive. The construction is heavy duty like all Kriega stuff (I have a backpack too). It has a nice handle and comfortable shoulder strap. The only negative thing is that the bag is not very structured. As a matter of fact it's somewhat floppy. The lid will not stand on it's own when open. That's not a big deal though. It's definitely more structured and useful than the liners available from Touratech and others.

I purchased these pants in preparation for a cross country trip back in September of '13. I needed a pair of all purpose pants to eliminate having to pack a rain suit. The pants fit great and were very comfortable right out of the box (I purchased a size 52. I am 6' tall, 185 lbs) One issue though, after discovering the Gore-Tex liner is built together with the insulation liner I realized I'd still need a rain suit for the wet and hot days. Never the less the pants did good. They were comfortable to wear all day long for 17 days straight. The vents worked pretty good as long as I was in motion. We encountered many days with temperatures over 100 degrees F! Also went through some 40 degree stuff through the Rockies. I covered 5200 miles in relative comfort. One nit pick I'll add though; The waist adjustment straps have a rectangular buckle that slides sideways and bunches up. I think I'll take the pants to someone to get them altered so it works better. The knee armor is very good, Hip armor is wimpy.

These pants are really well constructed with heavy duty features every where. The side vents seem large enough to create good air flow. Unfortunately I'll never know how they perform on the bike. I had to return them because the fit was so odd. The length and waist are pretty much true to size. I ordered a size 34 and those areas were spot on. I'm 6'-0" and 185 lbs, my inseam measures at 32". I typically wear a 33 x 34 jean. The odd part is the butt/seat area, it's huge! I realize they are designed to fit while seated on a bike but I could have carried a 10 lb sack of potatoes in there. The crotch is also very loose and low (think M.C. Hammer). I'm disappointed because I really need a pair of waterproof pants but I can't live with this odd fit while walking around off the bike. Also at this price point you'd think they could afford to make these in the USA. They have a big label that touts that they are designed in the USA but the actual construction takes place in Vietnam.

REV'IT! Airwave Pants The perfect match for the REV'IT! Airwave jacket, these trousers are also great over-pants to wear on top of your jeans during summer commutes. The large air mesh panels allow for maximum cooling, but that's not all they're on and off in seconds, thanks to the long inside zippers. Reflective panels at the lower legs ensure great visibility at all times. Even more, the Knox Flexiform CE-approved armor is located in height adjustable pockets, allowing you to position the armour just the way you like it. Available in classic black or fresh silver. PROTECTION FEATURES Outer shell polyester 600D , PWRshell 500D stretch, PWRshell mesh, polyester rib Visibility laminated reflection at calf Protection Knox Flexiform CE protection at knees, prepared for TRYONIC Seesoft CE-level 1 type B hip protector insert - version RV01 ( sold separately ) ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit tour fit , regular Adjustability adjustment straps at waist, adjustment tab at ankles Ventilation ventilation panels at legs Features easy entrance zipper at calf, adjustable protector pockets, short connection zipper, elastic at waistband Pockets slit pockets

These pants are pretty good, especially for the price. I bought them to try and make Central Florida's 96 degree / 98% humidity days more bearable. They seem to help. They offer better protection and airflow than wearing jeans or my regular riding pants. The construction is heavy duty as is all Rev'it! products. The adjustable knee pad pockets help to fine tune the fit. Air flow is good. I was especially pleased by the air flow through the legs in the shin area. Airflow at the thigh is good, particularly when you stick your knee out away from your bike, into the air stream. Unfortunately, the airflow around the waist and hips is blocked by the pockets and hip pads. The hip pockets (like those found on jeans) are small and pretty much useless so they should have just left them out in order to get more airflow. A small cargo pocket on the side of a thigh area would have been better. The fit is pretty much like the size chart. I typically wear a 33 waist, 34 inseam jean so I bought the large size. The only gripe I have is that the waist cinch strap range is too limited. I am not able to pull them in enough to fit my waist. Leg length is good. They are also a bit baggy in the seat but that is typical for a motorcycle pant.

I purchased these boots in preparation for a cross country trip from California to Florida. I got them to wear while I riding my BMW R 1200 GS.
I compared this boot to the SIDI adventure Rain, and the TCX Infinity Gore-Tex Adventure/Touring boot. I really scrutinized all their attributes. I eventually ruled out the Adventure Rain boot because it did not have a true Gore-Tex lining and some of the other reviewers reported that it leaked. Since one of my main requirements was water resistance, that was a strike against it. I also passed on the Adventure Rain because of the excessive plastic parts, the reports of squeaking, and I worried that the extreme styling would get old. I eventually ordered the SIDI On Road and the TCX.
Sizing; I typically wear a 10 1/2 in US size. I ordered a 44 EU/US 10 in both boots because I don't like a big sloppy boot fit (half sizes were not available). The TCX seemed to fit pretty good. My toes were a little close to the end but not uncomfortable. The TCX interior was also a little wider which was nice. The SIDI runs a little on the small side, my big toe bumped against the inside of the toe box and I worried that this would cause problems when hiking around during sightseeing excursions off the bike. I returned the 44 SIDI's and ordered a size 45/US 11. They fit great.
Both the boots were well made and I really like the style of the TCX. I also like the sole of the TCX because it is less aggressive. I've had problems in the past with heavily lugged boots snagging on the foot pegs at critical times, almost causing me to wreck. The TCX has temperamental clamps/straps that easily come loose from the boot. I think they wouldn't be very durable in the long run so I returned them. The SIDI's have good, basic leather/nylon/Velcro strap system that is easy to use and adjust. I believe it'll last much longer than the snow ski buckle systems found other adventure boots. The soles have a more aggressive lug pattern but not too extreme. The removable insole in the SIDI is useless piece of junk though. It must be replaced by a good quality insole (available at any boot/hiking store).
I chose the SIDI On Road because of the true Gore-Tex lining, buckle system, and the classic boot styling.
After putting the On Roads to work, I'm glad I chose them. they are truly water proof. As a test, I walked around and stood in about 8" of water for about 5-6 minutes and my socks remained dry.
This past week, I took a trip to the Smokey Mountains. I wore the boot s for three days straight. They broke in quickly. They give good support. and while thick and protective I could still shift and brake without too much trouble. The boots are very warm though. The temperatures during my trip ranged from low 60's to low 90's. In the 90 degree zones my feet were cooking. I guess that is just the nature of a waterproof boot. They provided good traction on loose rocky surfaces and slippery, muddy slopes (minor mud). I put the boots to the test during a little mishap. While sliding around on a gravel fire road the bike started to low-side and I jabbed my foot down to save myself from a fall. The bike came back under me nicely but my foot was in the path of the rear tire so I ran over my own foot. The SIDI's weren't even phased. They protected my foot nicely and the only thing injured was my ego.
Since returning, I have washed to boots with car wash soap and treated them with some mink oil. They are looking good and have gotten softer and more comfortable. I would definitely recommend these boots.
Yes, I recommend this product.
