These were my first pair of gloves when I got my bike back in August. They fit great and flow tons of air. They're simple but I love the way they look. I have the all black ones. I lost my first pair and proceeded to the closest bike shop and bought them again. For the price, I wasn't too devastated but I needed gloves and I loved my first pair.

Ok so I'll make this sweet and short.
Waterproof, check
Warm, check
Should have gotten the artics, to avoid the frozen finger tips. They work great down to about 40f or so.
Totally recommend them for late fall and maybe early winter if you don't have heated grips or liners.

Ok, so let me start off by saying that Revzilla service is top notch. I ordered a medium, don't know what I was thinking, and it got here really quick. Unfortunately I had to take Anthony up on the free exchange. I'm not a big guy, 170lbs. (Mostly gut) 5'7" 40-41" chest. I couldn't even get my arms in this thing.
Once I got my large, I was in heaven. I rode this badboy in 33F at 65mph. Only thing cold were my poor jean cladded legs. Ouch! This thing is so warm and like others said, that's with just a regular shirt underneath.
If you live in NYC, you know that we had some crazy temp fluxes. In the warm temps, 60's, this thing worked perfect. Going to pick up the drystar over pants so I can start riding a little sooner this year.
Zipper is tiny with winter gloves on, and the front velcro ain't to grippy but those are minor details. I suggest going a size up. Btw, it worked great when I got caught in a downpour on my 35 minute commute home. Jacket does look better in person. Only gave it 4 *'s cause I'm still waiting to try it out in the summer and the neck's a tiny bit tight.

I basically got this helmet because it was my first and I didn't want to spend a lot of money without knowing what I needed. To get the real flow of air in this thing your really need to tilt that head down. I find that every time I stop, no matter the weather, I have to raise the sheild or it fogs up something horrid. The fit was great for about two weeks but now it's kinda of loose, I chalk it up to just wearing it. I think a small might have been a bit too tight. As for durable, the top peice that controls the top vents, snapped off after it brushed up against my jeans. The shield nicks up way to easy in my opinion but this is why I got a $100 helmet in the first place.
I now know that the next helmet I get needs better flow for upright seated riding, and that I need some kind of tint in the sheild. Hope this helps anyone looking into this helmet. Happy riding.

I bought this for a Christmas present to my best friend. I really can't say much on the functionality of the the bag seeing that its winter and her bike is in the living room. Lol. She did day that it was the perfect size and would get tons of daily use out of it. I'll update this review in a few months when she's had a chance to ride around with it mounted to the tank. Best part is that with revzilla being in Philly, I got it in like two days.
