Overall this jacket is just what I expected. Its a good commuting jacket, huge swaths of Hi-Viz will do the job. Pockets are a good size, the tops roll over some so you have to open it fully to really get things inside them. No opening one side and slipping in some small item.
Only one thing needs improvement. The main zipper is too small. I don't mean it doesn't zip up, I mean that its not very beefy. It should have been a bigger gauge. I figure it will be the first thing to brake on this jacket. Also makes it hard to get the two halves to get together.
Typical Rev'it sizing... go bigger than normal, you wont have to send it back then.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I took a screw in my stock tire at 650 miles and this was in stock locally so I got one put on rear. Its been 3500 miles of mainly commuter traffic and freeways. This tire shows great wear and I'm pretty sure I'm not half way done with them. Considering I'm usually flat spotting the tire by now. So I'm very impressed with the tire life. No real rain or dirt experience on them yet.

Waterproof and Warm!

These gloves deliver as advertised. I rode for 13.5 hours, 6 of that in the rain temps ranged from 43-55. My hands were chilled the entire time, but only chilled. Any glove that lets me ride for 6+ hours in the rain and temps in the 40s and only feel "chilled" are fantastic! My hands were bone dry as well. So they truly are waterproof. A+ Revit! Now if only you made Infinity suits for guys with short legs and long torsos...
Pros Comfortable
Yes, I recommend this product.

Sidi, continuously researching new technological solutions to enhance rider safety, is proud to present the Way Rain boot. With Sidis great style, feel, support and quality there are no finer performance off road boots in the world. Non-Bootie Designs Sidi boots do not incorporate inner booties into their design, and for good reason. Booties make the design larger and cumbersome add to the boots thickness, which interferes with shifting, plus the inner booties retain body heat affecting the riders performance and comfort. Lining Each boot is lined throughout with lightweight perforated Teflon treated fabric in order to allow moisture to breath out to the Lorica outer and dry quickly with no mold build up in the long term. Additionally the inner ankle area of all Strada series boots are fully lined with Sidis own formula of perforated closed thousand-air cell memory foam. A totally breathable lining system. Composite Insole Sidi is the only manufacture to use a composite insole that is anatomically shaped to the rider. A cushioned liner is provided that can be removed if the rider desires a more roomy fit. Sidi does not use steel shanks riveted to its insole like most manufactures, details such as this enable Sidi boots to enjoy a multi year service life versus the competitors multi month lifespan as over time, a steel shank can deteriorate, rust and fracture exposing the rider to injury. Lorica Boot's outer is fully constructed with Lorica, a composite micro fiber material created from strands less than one thousandth the thickness of silk. When injected with special resins, these fibers act like natural leather skin, but with the addition of better strength, softer texture, lighter weight and better moisture protection. Lorica is also highly resistant to abrasion - yet it still breathes - with more than three million pores per square centimeter. Easy to maintain, Lorica doesnt stain and cant be scratched and offers, reduced weight, more flexibility and more feel than leather racing boots. Features Mega version offers EE width as well as increased room all around the arch area Rain membrane to add a water resistant yet breathable barrier between the elements and the riders feet Lorica Cordura outer construction Perforated Teflon treated nylon lining Composite inner sole Removable arch support Internal heel protection Internal ankle protection Internal toe protection Zipper and Velcro closure system Full length inner gaiter Lorica toe shift pad Double stitched in all high stress areas Reflective heel panel Nylon plate and internally padded shin plate Non-slip Sidi sole

Good but not perfect

I have a size 8.5 EE foot. This was the only boot that I could find that was close to being my size. I went with the 43 and indeed the boot was a little long, but I can wear think winter socks and its fits fine; so it runs true to size.
They are indeed waterproof. I rode for 6+ hours in the rain and my feet stayed bone dry. This was great! I have not ridden them in hot weather, but I'm not expecting them to keep my feet cool. Seems to be made of plastic, so if you live in death valley this might not be the boot for you.
The bad: The soles & footbed suck. They are slippery & thin. I am short so my bike is a challenge already, but I dumped it in a parking lot because my foot slipped on the pavement. My regular boots have about an inch sole, these are maybe 1/4". I took these to a cobbler and had an inch added and an ice grip put on the front of the soles. The footbed that they come with has no arch support so I added superfeet footbeds and they are much better.
So after $120 in modifications they are great! If you are tall and don't need added height you would only need to have the grip changed, that would have cost me $30 less. Oh and because the sole is plastic it has an oil added to it so it bends, this means that I will need to have the new soles re-glued every few years.
Yes, I recommend this product.
