Today was +4C and "normal amount" of rain. I needed to bring my bike to mechanic, so it was a good day to really test these pants.
First of all - it is easy to put them on while you are wearing sneakers, try to do it with riding boots. It will not be so fast and easy.
Then while I was riding I noticed that the pants could be a bit longer, 2 inch longer. I am 1.80cm (about 6 feet) and in my riding position pants were above my ankle, since I was wearing waterproof, short riding shoes, wind was blowing in my leg and it was chill. So if you are taller, then you need longer pants.
And last and most important - waterproof. As I told, it was cool and "normal" amount of rain. I had jeans beneath these pants. I felt warm, that was nice, but after 20min of riding, I started to feel moisture. After another 20 min, my butt was getting wet. I was expecting a bit better waterproofnes.
Overall, nice pants for city riding, but don't expect them to be adventure, long journey pants.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Hoody by itself is ok. It is not very thick material, so great for summer evening, when in T-shirt is a bit to cool.
However, the design was disappointing. It looks way better on photo that in real life. Those logo looks a bit cheap. You know those fake "Dolce & Gabana" T-shirts with huge logos, well it looks like that.
I wear size European L, this hoody is a bit bigger than standard European L.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Icon Patrol Waterproof Jacket Whether your ride includes chilly mountain passes or a soggy morning commute the Patrol Waterproof Jacket has you covered. Representing our most technically advanced all weather riding jacket, the Patrol will go the distance with unmatched safety, comfort and weather protection. To keep out the wind and rain, the abrasion resistant nylon chassis is fully seam-sealed and includes waterproof YKK zippers and a quick action magnetic storm flap. Mounted within the chassis is a full complement of Field Armor CE approved impact protectors. A full 3M reflective graphics package provides optimum nighttime visibility. Six intake and exhaust ports provide ample mechanical ventilation while the removable Thermolite insulated liner helps keep your core temperature regulated. Externally, we added enough pockets to carry everything you need for distance rides and included a removable external hydration pocket to hold a 1.5 liter waterpack (not included). Yellow colorway meet U.S. military PPE hi-visibility specifications Icon relaxed fit Waterproof seam sealed nylon textile chassis Removable Icon CE field armor impact protector elbow and shoulder Removable Icon dual-density foam back pad Heavyweight ballistic impact panels YKK waterproof zippers Magnetic storm flap closures 3M reflective panels Multiple intake and exhaust vents Removable hydration pocket (bladder not included) Twelve storage pockets Removable Thermolite insulated liner Upgradable to Stryker CE back protector

Perfect jacket. I am size L, but a bit bigger in the shoulder than average person, and size L fits me perfect.
Lot of great features, pockets and so on. I took the inside out and vent for a ride to my friends. Had just a T-shirt underneath. The evening was warm +20 C, however i was riding back home at night and it was very cold +2C. And i was not cold. I had a ride for 40 minutes till i got home and the only thing that was freezing was my hands because of summer gloves.
Also during the day, i open all the ventilations and it is nice and cool, i can ride it in warm weather and i don't sweat underneath.
This is the ultimate jacket for bad weather and also in good weather. The best part what i like about this jacket is that it looks like a regular winter -snowboard style jacket. When i get off the bike i don't look like and idiot walking around in labeled jacket, lot of pockets, and armor showing out.
Big thanks to Revzilla team - they found where i live and delivered it internationally very fast!

I got these and they are great. Water resistant and also warm. I was riding during the night and it got cold +2 C. And my feat felt good, did not felt the cold.
Style is great, looks good with jeans. Enough protection for city ride. Although, i work in the office and prefer to change to other shoes. They are comfortable to walk around, and go to bike meeting, but to wear all day long in office is not the best option.
Also, inside of the shoe was slippery, it was moving a bit. I had to glue the sole inside the shoe.
Anyway - great protection, great style, very comfortable and good price!
