I wanted a sturdy glove for hot weather that offers serious protection. Most of my riding is highway touring which provides plenty of "adventure". The Sambia is advertised as a dual sport glove but I think the features it has are perfect in the event my hand should make asphalt/concrete contact. It flows a decent amount of air and the kangaroo palms have a great feel. Overall good fit, comfortable, style and protection.

This disc lock is a solid piece of hardware (probably weighs 2 lbs), that is great portable security. It doesn't take up much space in my saddle bag. I don't use it often, but on those nights when parked in a hotel lot, it gives me a little extra sense of security. The solid feel of this lock adds confidence that it will take some serious and loud effort to get this off. My only gripe is that the "remove before riding" cable is way too short. I have a H-D Road Glide and the cable is at least a foot too short to make it from my front wheel to the handlebars. I remove it from the lock and simply wrap it around my mirror. Better than having it attached to the lock and laying on the ground.

I have several pairs of kevlar/armored jeans from different manufacturers. Always trying to find the "best" pair. These are becoming my favorites after wearing them for a few weeks now. They look good and aren't baggy. A feature I did not want. I was a little put off by the warning that the dye in the fabric could come off on light color cushions or seats. Watch where you sit in the house. There is a long list of "do not" items on the fabric care label but if it means keeping the kevlar protection at it's peak then I'll comply. I still don't really get the idea that riding jeans shouldn't be washed or cleaned. After a few summer road trips they need to be laundered. The color is dark and not likely to fade much. The lining is a nice touch and the fit makes them perfect both on and off the bike. I remove the armor after riding and am able to walk around without looking like Robocop. I did not give these jeans a 5 star Bang for the Buck simply because of the placement of the knee armor. As other reviewers have noted, the pouch holding the armor is way too big so the D3O will slide around. Anthony mentions this in the video and hopes Icon will fix it in the next release. Me too. I took to needle and thread to fix it but should you have to do this to $200 jeans? The benefits of these jeans greatly outweighs this flaw.

I bought the brown/black pair and really like the look. RSD has style. The fit is very good using soft leather and the velcro strap is easy to use. They provide good feel to the controls and are not bulky. I rated the air flow low because while there are holes in the leather they do not go through the liner material so venting is minimal.

I did order a size smaller like the video recommends and the fit was correct. This boot feels great for both riding and walking around. It comes up farther on my calf than any other boots I own but that is not a bad feature. The adjustability at the top makes it fit the way you like. I have not been in heavy rain so far but brief showers caused no leakage. My only gripe is that the lower strap must be loosened to get the zipper all the way to the down position. Maybe with a little more break-in I won't need to unzip it all the way, but for now, it takes extra time to unbuckle, zip, then re-buckle the strap. Beautiful boot with a comfortable fit right out of the box.

This wallet has a slim design and holds all you really need on a ride. I like the leather cord although I rarely use it since I keep it in a zippered jacket pocket. It is a quality made piece and looks great. Do you pay extra for the Roland Sands name? Of course. The snap closure is high quality that I'm sure will last as will the leather. I've had much cheaper wallets that weren't as well made. They end up at home in a drawer. The only issue I had was that this product was on back order and by normal REVZILLA standards it took a long time to arrive, about two weeks.

REV'IT! Pacific H2O Rain Suit In developing the Pacific H20 rain suit, one of REV'IT!'s main goals was to make it easy to put on in just a few seconds about the time it takes you to get soaked during a heavy shower. Mission accomplished. The solution lies not only in the long, diagonal front closure, but especially in the newly developed, non-stick, PVC-free coating on the inside of the Power Nylon outer shell. The result is a 100 waterproof, breathable, and very practical all-weather companion that will meet the demands of any rider. Convenient features include a storage pocket on the upper leg. For safety, reflection panels on the shoulders and lower legs ensure great visibility. If you need to stand out in traffic even more, the Pacific H2O comes in a high-visibility neon yellow option. PROTECTION FEATURES Outer shell PVC-free PWROxford with PU coating, PVC-free PWROxford EN471 with PU coating (in Neon Yellow color only) Waterproofing 100 waterproof Composition 100 polyester (100 polyurethane coating) Visibility reflection at shoulders and legs, reflective logo at chest and back ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit tour fit, regular Adjustability adjustment tabs at upper arm, cuffs and ankles Features PVC-free XL front zipper Elastic at waistline Includes transport bag Stash pocket on left leg EN343 certified

I wanted a light weight, quick donning one-piece that I could carry in the event of a rain shower that popped up during a ride. This REV'It model fills the bill. If I were facing a full day of riding in hard rain I would look for something more substantial. It does not flow air but I honestly feel no one-piece waterproof suit will, no matter what the claims are. Wear it during the rain, then take it off. It is light, very conspicuous, waterproof and easy to use. I can stop on the side of the road and have this on in a minute or so and be back to riding. After the rain, it is off and back in my saddlebag just as fast.

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

I got the silver version to help with the heat in Florida. It seems to have an effect as I've ridden in direct sunlight for hours and remained as cool as possible. The mesh does flow the air well and I feel protected with the amour and reinforcement panels. These pants fit well but finding the size that matches Rev'IT's chart is a challenge to say the least. I wear a 36" x 30" in Levis jeans but for this product it took a XXLShort. Who would have known? To get it right it's best to call and talk to a human. The are very comfortable both on and off the bike. I particularly like that the knee armor stays put while riding.

This shoe is very comfortable and also provides a good layer of protection. I have walked around in this shoe for several hours and have not had any problems. They are stiff enough but not to a point where they can't double for off bike wear. They look good with jeans. I have ridden in rain with them and had no leaks. Not really hours of heavy rain but they seem able to handle just about anything you'd be out in. The airflow is minimal but that's the way it is with being WP. Overall worth the extra money.

I wanted a shoe that would be functional both on and off the bike. The Moment of Truth fits that and looks good too. I have worn these to bike events and walked around in them for 3 or 4 hours. They are comfortable and look good with jeans. They do not provide total protection but for serious touring I wear boots. These shoes are a good combination of road protection and walking comfort. Very reasonably priced.
