Overall, these pants are pretty good. They fit my 5'9", 155 lb frame pretty well in a size M, with room to fit my knee pads and protection shorts. They are fairly fitted, becoming more snug towards the bottom. They are advertised as having a lot of air flow, but I only rate them as moderate. The fact that I always wear pads underneath does have an effect on the airflow. If you plan to run raw underneath, you should be just fine. I do noticed airflow in my more sensitive areas and inner thighs, which are not padded up.
They do flow considerably more air than my kevlar jeans (with the same pads underneath), so they do fulfill their intended purpose. Just don't expect airflow comparable to wearing a mesh jacket, and you won't be disappointed.

I went with the extreme harness flite because it offers ce1 chest protection in addition to ce2 back protection. And from my research, forcefield is the only company with multiple impact technology, which means I can use this for other sports such as snowboarding or even mtn biking. It does conform well to your body, and I really do not notice it when I'm riding. I have only used it during colder weather so I cannot comment on its ventilation and "hot factor".
My only gripes are 1) the Medium fits my 5'9, 165 lb, 40short suit frame slightly large ( I have to velcro the shoulder and rib sections to where it overlaps), and 2) the shoulders are really thick and it raises your jacket so it looks like its not sitting on your shoulders. However, there is some benefit to that because the shoulders and every other part of the vest that doesn't have the nitrex padding is actually a padded foam, which means my shoulders and the sides of my abdomen have additional coverage.
I'm very pleased with this product, and I hope I never have to use it.

I would first like to say this review is not a knock on Revzilla, because I think it is a fantastic company and will continue ordering from them.
The major problem with bike-lift products in that the adapters to actually make this stand (and all stands) useful are NOT included. Not a big deal if you can search for and purchase the adapters online. As it turns out, bike-lift has discontinued selling the adapters in the US. The only US company I found that sold the front adapters did not have them in stock, and could not order them for me. I was issued a refund, and afterward contacted bike-lift directly. They set me up with their North Am distributor, located in Ontario. I ended up getting the cone and pad style adapters which costed me, with shipping, nearly as much as the bike stand alone.
At the end of the day, does it function as a front stand? Well...the cone adapters work well with my forks and give me easy access to the axle (the whole reason why I chose this stand), but the pad style adapters are actually too wide and don't lift the forks at two solid points on either side.
In all honesty, Revzilla should consider removing this product from their website because I don't want any other customers to go through the same headaches I went through.
