I purchased the mostly white perforated version of the Racing. I am 6'3", 185 lbs, about 40-41 inch chest and own this jacket in a 52 - perfect fit. I also have the Forcefield back Protector for Dainese (G2 size) inserted, and is extremely comfortable.
I live in a very hot and humid area. I went out for a long ride not too long ago and also was stuck in a 40 minute stop-and-go traffic. It was averaging about 92 degrees when i was riding, and peaked at around 97. When I was moving, I was extremely comfortable. Air flow is outstanding, and having mostly white leather probably helped in not absorbing the sun.
Did I sweat when I was moving under 20 mph or at stops. yes. But as soon i started moving, the sweat helped cool me down even more due to the great air flow. When i finished my ride, my jacket did not stink at all. The anti-microbial mesh liner is excellent.
I upgraded to this jacket from a summer mesh jacket...i feel a lot more protected and just as cool, if not more. When the weather is in low 70s, it flows enough air that it's borderline chilly with a short sleeve shirt...but nothing a long-sleeve cotton shirt doesn't fix.
I highly recommend this jacket...just wished Dainese made textile or leather pants in tall lengths...I have a 34 inch inseam, and most of the pants (new air drake or alien) only come in 32 inch inseam for my waist size.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I've had the Lazer Monanco White Carbon for three months, and have wore it for
about 1600 miles thus far, and in temps ranging from 35 degrees to 97 degrees.
I knew of Lazer's quality form previous bicycle helmets I've owned. The Lazer
Monaco Carbon helmet is absolutely superb, and without having seen it or tried
it on first, I'm extremely satisfied with the purchase. Prior to this helmet,
I was considering the Shoei Neotec, Shoei GT Air, and the Schuberth C3; I had
been previously been using a Scorpion EX0 1100 and EXO 500. Another issue with
the Scorpion was the drop-down sun visor...one day I was commuting home, and
the visor came off track, and dangled in my face. I had to pull over the side
of the highway to fix it - had I crashed, the thing would have literally taken
my eye(s) out. I had been debating going from a full-face to a modular for
some time for reasons of practicality - sneezing and not funking up the inside
of my visor...asking people for directions without a muffled and covered
face...stopping for gas...drinking water or answering the phone without having
to fully take off the helmet.
So arrives the LaZer Monaco from RevZilla in the mail...lightest helmet hands
down of all the full face and modulars I owned or considered buying. The liner
is extremely nice, comfortable, and the exterior design/graphics is just sooo
sweet, especially with the carbon fiber.
Shape/fit - My head is a slight to medium oval shape. It measures about 59cm,
and the Monaco Large fit me perfectly...not too snug and not too loose. The
Scorpions were perfect around my head, but extremely tight on the jar and
cheeks. Both Shoei helmets I tried on were perfect on the cheeks/jaw, but too
loose around the crown of the head, and the Neotec felt too heavy - heavier
than the Scorpion EXO 1100. With the Schuberth, I could not get a good fit -
the Large was too tight on the forehead, and the XL was too loose. Initially,
it's tight to put the helmet on your head, even with the modular feature open.
The reason is that being carbon fiber, it has much less flex that fiber
glass - this was knocking off my ear protection too. After about two weeks,
this is no longer a problem, and the helmet goes on/off quite easily.
Visor/Lens - The photochromatic lens is second to none! I wish all helmets had
this feature. Not only is there an additional moving piece of the helmet (eyes
being gauged out potential) removed, which is also weight savings, but the
entire face receives blockage from the sun. It darkens and lightens quickly
and appropriately to the sunlight it's being exposed to. The clarity of the
visor lens is that of my Oakley polarized sunglasses...simply awesome
visibility. The mechanism of lifting/lowering the visor is also very smooth.
The pinlock visor does an excellent job preventing fogging. I find no
disadvantage to using the pinlock visor at night time either, even with
oncoming headlights. If anything it works better because it doesn't fog, and
the clarity of the visor is much better. It took 30 seconds to install, and
there is a YouTube video by Lazer guiding the installation.
Aerodynamics - I ride an upright sport tourer MC, with a decent, but not
large, front fairing. I used to get a lot of buffeting on my scorpion,
especially above 60 mpg and when turning my head for lane checks. The Lazer is
awesome in the wind...going very fast (won't comment on speed), there is no
buffeting, and especially none when doing lane checking - it slices right
through the wind.
Venting - The single top vent is better than any other helmet I've worn and
very effective - I can feel the air on my head when the top vent is open, and
feel no air when the vent is closed.
Weight - No more neck pain...enough said.
Noise - The Lazer Monaco Carbon is much more quiet than my scorpion, and
probably on par with the Schuberth IMHO. I always wear hearing protection
regardless except once when I loss my ear plugs. I rode the helmet and it was
very quiet on roads where the speed did not exceed 50 mph. Once you surpass
that speed, it did get noisier, but that is true for any helmet. The helmet is
slightly noisier when the top vent is open too...Overall, I would rate it very
quiet.
Rain - I've worn this helmet in the rain on several occasions, once in a
complete downpour at night, and without the "rain stoppers" put in. Outcome -
no rain in the helmet...none thorugh the vents or visor - good seal all
around. And again, the visibility with the pinlock at night had no negative
impact, despite the rain and dark. This is where those squeegee finger wipers
on the HELD gloves shined...
Modular feature - easy to use, despite my big head and fingers. Very secure
when open and closed. The "snap" sound when it closes is reassuring. The
hook/hinge feature keeping the modular part closed is the same as on the
Neotec (having examined the Neotec up close).
Other - I am debating if I will buy the LaZer Bluetooth kit, when it arrives. It's nice the helmet is already pre-wired, and there is no objective hanging
on the outside of the helmet to ruin its looks or aerodynamic performance.With the Bluetooth kit installed, the helmet will weigh the same as the
Schuberth C3 (without Bluetooth)...
CON - One of REVZILLA's Q&A responses stated the helmet was both DOT and ECE rated. The helmet is in fact only labeled as being DOT, even though the pinlock states its ECE as well. Not an issue if a rider never leaves the US...I live/work between the US and Europe, so it was a little disappointing for me, but all the PROs definitely outweigh this minor set back.
REVZILLA SERVICE - love this business. The helmet shipped without the "rain stoppers." Contacted Revzilla and received them in no time.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I was initially looking at sidi or tcx. Neither would fit my wide foot. I came across the tour master by accident, tried it on, and it fit. I wear a size 12D in running shoes and the size 46 fit me perfectly. Once I wore the boots for about 10 days of riding, the broke right in and I can walk in them all day now. They are surprisingly breathable in 100F heat, and keep my feet warm in 30 degree cold easily with only normal socks on. Protection is great and e boot is very sturdy...feel confident they will protect me wel in a crash. Wore in rain showers too and my feet stayed completely dry. Best bang for the buck...thinking about ordering a second pair to have if and when my first pair wear out...I am a daily commuter so it could be within the next six months.
Yes, I recommend this product.

So I've had the new Misano jacket for about two months now, ridden in temps ranging from 30-85F, sun and rain, and am very happy with this purchase.
I'm 6'3", 185lb, lean athletic built, 32" waist, 42" chest. The LARGE fits perfect on me, and the adjustable straps at the waist, wrists, and the gusset help. Not too baggy with only a base layer, and not too restrictive with base and mid-layer underneath - very adjustable. I stated it is a little large in fit above because usually I wear an XL in jackets (Dianese) and either a 52/54 in Rev'it, depending on the jacket. I always appreciate these stats that people post...so keep doing it too!
The vents perform excellent, but I'm not sure if enough air would vent in temps over 95F...the summers here get up to 100 with 100% humidity.
The jacket does great in the cold weather, as long as you have a good middle layer that you can tighten the waist straps so air doesn't get up in between. I usually wear a 800 count down jacket underneath and one performance long sleeve under armour, and my core is perfectly fine in freezing temps (30-34F).
The body armour is excellent - comes with shoulder, elbow, and back protector, all CE rated.
The pockets outside and internal are very nice.
Pricey, but worth the money for GORE-TEX and a jacket that can do it all in all kinds of climates and temps. MISANO is also nice...didn't have any break-in time at all, and the collar was fine-not bothersome whatsoever, but I am tall.
Nice reflective material, but I still wear a reflective vest over it for safety while on the bike.
No complaints on this jacket yet - I think it will be a very durable and lost-lasting purchase.

Jumping through hoops to get that new bike onto base While Icon cant help you bypass military regulations, they can help you meet them without looking like a construction worker The Mil Spec vest was designed to pass all military requirements for a mandatory reflective vest No bright orange reflective vest is ever going to win you fashion awards, but if you have to wear one, and you do, it might as well have the style and features that wont make you cringe Removable I.D. holder Adjustable fit Reflective taping (front and back) Storage pockets

Stats... 6'3" tall and about 185 lbs. I purchased this because I bought a new Spidi winter jacket that is all black with some reflective material.
Background....initially bought the first gear reflective vest from reveille in the size m/l. The thing was massively large, long as or longer than my 3/4 jacket, and way to bulky...air would make it flap if I actually used it. Could not tighten the sides and since them down.
Returned the first gear to reveille and got the icon yellow in the regular size....runs up to large. Fits over my winter jacket just fine, with three layers of clothes under the jacket and the jacket liner in. I did not want the vest to be loose and flapping as I ride, especially on the highway. I think by being more snug and slightly smaller, much smaller than first gear, the reflective material will also work better at night because it is not folding or collapsing down, and sits higher on my jacket.
Material feels a tad more durable than the first gear vest, and I like the zip close pockets in the front and back. Do not care for the ID wallet...did not try to put any ID in it yet either to see if it is large enough. Back pocket is plenty spacious for a cell phone, unlike another viewer wrote, unless they have a gigantic phone.
I do not mind the icon logo on the back since it is fully reflective...covers a lot of area when lit up. I also noticed the front zipper is YKK, so gives confidence that the snug fit should not break the vest.
I went with the vest because my summer revit jacket is all hi vis. Hs been working to make cars notices me, and wanted to maintain that safety with a dark winter jacket, especially in darker riding conditions during my commute. Like the fact at with the vest, I can take it off once at destination, and still wear the jacket without it. Did noT want that for summer though since my revit was bought specifically for air flow...did not want a vest to impede that flow in front or back whatsoever.
This vest is a good investment and good product...glad I switched out.
Also, I ordered it on Tuesday afternoon, and it arrived on Wednesday while also exchanging my other vest...shipped it back on Tuesday and had my refund already processed on Wednesday. Thanks revzilla for the great service...reason why I keep shopping online with you guys!
Yes, I recommend this product.

I received my vest the other day and waited for my new winter jacket to arrive today to try the fit (my summer jacket is hi-vis itself).
I saw the reviews and ordered a size smaller...I wear a XL jacket so purchased the M-L vest. I am 6'3" and 185 lbs. With my winter 3/4 length jacket, with liner and layers underneath, the vest is still too big. The velcro side straps won't close tighter, and the back of the vest goes as far down as my 3/4 touring winter jacket.
I plan to return/exchange this with RevZilla. With that much bulk of the vest, I would expect it to flap all over.
That said, the reflective material all over the vest in the right places. Too bad it is sized for those whose diet solely consists of McDonald's and KFC. The wallet thing on the vest is terrible to. First gear should simply remove it altogether.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Just received this jacket today in the mail, so the upfront disclaimer is I have yet to wear it on a ride - this is initial impressions.
I have a REV'IT Tornado jacket, hi-viz, which is awesome for summer, and now with fall, with the liner in, at 50 degrees, I'm chilly commuting on the highway.
Thus I chose the Spidi...I looked at the second version of this same jacket, and not really struck me as justifying the additional $100 given the closeout special.
PROS:
Great looking jacket. I am 6'3", 185 lbs, long arms, and this jacket fits me perfect, with the liner in and a long sleeve with t-shirt underneath. Very Euro cut - I lived there for 10 years (Europe) and loved the Spidi apparel I saw.
Collar is extremely comfortable and just the right height for a winter jacket.
Pockets, back light, zippers, jacket, liner - everything is really high quality.
CE Back armor is included!
CONS:
Armor - I'm used to REV'IT knox armor, and I compared my two jackets side-by-side, along with feeling the armor, the coverage (length/width), and thickness. The knox zrmor is definitely better feeling - more durable, at least superficially, than Spidi's. Knox is thicker, wider and longer on the shoulders and arms.
The Spidi back armor is great - wide and long. Problem is it moves around in the jacket due to too much room. Whereas the knox tp back armor in REV'IT is a b@t@h to get in/out, but it stays put!
Finally, the jacket has no vents, so it limits its versatility for drastic temperature changes. Without the liner in, the jacket feels a lot lighter...probably perform well (not get to hot) up to 75 degrees with low humidity.
Overall, I really like it. It made me realize though, having both jackets that have some "cross-over" of seasonality, that I would have been better to buy one serious 4-season jacket from the start for year-round use. If I had to do it all over again, I would have bought a 4-season jacket that (1) was Gore-Tex, (2) had vents, (3) reflective material, but came with a thermal liner (not rain liner...thus the Gore-Tex. Specifically, I would have gone with the Held Carese Gore-Tex Jacket. It would have been more expensive initially, but in the end I spent the same on two jackets, which I'll always be deciding which to use. If I ever choose to do a real adventure tour (sport touring) across hot and cold climates and low/high elevations, I would have to pack more layers for the Tornado - or buy a third jacket that is 4-season...
You can't go wrong with Spidi though. This is a great deal that I only found on Revzilla...thanks guys!
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought this glove in May...my palm measured to be a size 9 (Large) in Held, but with my long fingers, I wear a XXL in Rev'It gloves.
This glove at size 9 fits perfect. Air flow is incredible...holes on the sides of the fingers and in 100+ degree weather with humidity, my hands felt cool. Very good tactical feel and grip with the gloves and the protection is second to none - very comfortable and soft feel on the palms. I feel if I go down, the glove will offer execellent protection and keep my hands/wrist safe. No sign of normal wear/tear yet after using it all summer as a commuter glove and weekend riding.
I wore it in the rain a few times...didn't soak the hands or glove. The glove is good until about 60 degrees, which the fingers start getting chilly, especially above 45 mph.
My buddy recommended HELD to me, and I also recently bought the HELD Freezer. Sizing is the same and an excellent product.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is my second Scorpion; first was the EXO 500. The EXO 1100 is lighter and quieter than the EXO 500, and better handles head turning while traveling at 65 mph. IMHO, just as goo as Shoei, or any of those brands $360+. Visor is great...not too dark, not too light. Air flow is excellent, and even with all the vents, open, was not too bothered by noise traveling at 70 mph on the highway for about 30 minutes. Fits my head perfectly and more securely than the Schuberth C2, but that is individual-based...my choice was down to those two models. Head is 60 cm, and the LARGE was perfect...no hot spots or pressure points. It is difficult to fit into 34L side cases though. I went with the EXO 1100 since I can use it if I return to Europe to live or travel in the near future as well. Highly recommended scorpion to two other friends who ended up buying EXO 1000s, and they are both extremely satisfied too. Best bang for the buck, and I hope they keep churning out quality products and reasonable prices.

Sock wicks sweat extremely well. A little thicker than I thought it would be. Goes up to just below the knee (I'm 6'3") so does great job preventing chaffing with a boot. Once in contact with velcro, the material of the sock is screwed!!! Have yet to wash it to see how it holds up after...
