The bag is a great size if you are not willing to lug around a backpack but need a place for all your essentials.
No worries in the rain as it is totally water proof and provides quick and easy access to all the items.
I used the Sling Shoulder Bag on a 1000 mile long trip and it was a perfect addition to my luggage. Once positioned the bag never shifted, this without using the waist belt, and within a few feet I would completely forget about the bag being even there.
No pressure on your shoulders or torso.
Easy access to your phone, wallet, maps, glasses, camera or even a thermos and snacks. I wear a two piece leather suit that does not have any pockets and this works great for all the essentials on a trip that one needs easy and quick access to.
As with all Kriega products the materials and workmanship is top notch and it will be a bag that I will be able to use for a very long time. Kriega products are not cheap, but considering the quality and longevity of the product are priced rather fair.
I personally rather enjoy a product that works well and will not let me down for a long time then replacing cheaply made items frequently. I highly recommend this product.

I wear a medium size in Alpinestars and fit well in a medium in these Rev'It! Monster 2 Gloves. Very comfortable right away, good fit and built. As others have mentioned, only the left glove has a Rev'It! logo slider. I had someone at Revzilla check their stock and all of them do not have the same slider on the right glove. Not sure whether this is a manufacturing oversight or that is how they are supposed to be. Protection seems adequate for the price range of the glove, but as with most could be better. I'd rather pay an extra 30.- or 40.- $ and get more protection, however I really like the style of the glove.
One other issue I have is that the simple velcro wrist closure is too short. In order for me to get my hand into the glove the velcro band has to come completely out of the grommet and then needs to be threaded back through to close the loop. Easy done with my hand, not so easy when my hand is already in the glove and I am trying to thread it through for the other side. 1/2" to 3/4" lot a longer loop and it would not be an issue at all.
Going up a size would make it easier to get into the glove, but then the palm and fingers would have been too big. So I deal with that small issue and once on these feel great.
The temperatures have not been warm enough to see how well the gloves will vent and keep my hands cool.
All the seams look well done and even.
So far I am very happy with these gloves and would recommend them.

Stylmartin Rocket Boots The Stylmartin Rocket Boots are a cafe racer creation from yesteryear. The antiqued brown leather finish ages beautifully with use and is backed with a waterproof and breathable lining to keep out mother nature. Internal PU malleolus protection guards your ankles against impact and the stitched on leather gear shift pad adds both style and longevity to this classic boot. The Rocket Boots take the vintage military style even further with a buckled lace keeper that harkens back to the roughout double buckle boots worn by the soldiers of WWII. Gusseted side entry zips stolen right from the paratrooper jump boots of the 1950s and 60s adds miles of style. Getting the best of vintage styling and modern construction, the Rocket Boots are the style conscious, vintage riding enthusiasts dream boot. Features: Full grain leather upper Waterproof and breathable lining Internal malleolus PU protection on both sides Leather gear shift protection Zipper closure with adjustable leg strap and laces Anatomic, antibacterial and changeable footbed Anti-slip, anti-static and oil-resistant rubber sole

I received my Stylmartin Rocket boots a week ago and started wearing them everyday to break them in.
The sizing is consistent with all the Stylmartin boots and you want to order a full size down from what you usually wear.
In my case I ordered a 42/9 instead of my normal size 43/10.
Plenty of room even with a thick pair of socks.
Even though it says that the boot is waterproof, the label on the boot itself calls it water resistant. Have not used the boots in a downpour and therefore can not elaborate on that.
Went for a 100+ mile ride Saturday and the boots will take awhile longer to be really comfortable and broken in, however by the time I was towards the end of the ride I had completely forgotten about them, so they are getting softer already.
Heel and toe box are very stiff and it has good ankle protection. Side zipper makes it easy to get in and out.
Anybody looking for a retro/vintage looking boot with good protection will enjoy owning a pair.

I already own a Kriega R15 backpack, but as I am leaving on a long trip in a couple of weeks, I needed something with more capacity. The Kriega R25, due to the quadloc harness fits even better and distributes the load more evenly than the R15.
I went on a ride and carried about 15 pounds in the pack and as many have already described, it felt like I did not even have a pack on. It does not shift, is extremely comfortable to wear and is easily adjustable to any body. As with all Kriega products the R25 is built well with use of very strong materials.
I highly recommend this product.
Ordering with Revzilla is easy and quick. Delivery is promptly.
It doesn't get any easier and better that that.

Yes, it is not exactly cheap, but is is also made rather well.
It easily attaches to any Kriega back packs in seconds and can make finding your essentials a no-brainer. I wear a one-piece race suit, which only has one small breast pocket, in which I keep all my paperwork. Once I have the R25 on it is rather difficult to get to that pocket without taking the back pack off. This is where the Kube comes in. It easily fits my wallet, my keys and my custom ear plug case with room to spare. Or you could fit a small and compact point and shoot camera and a smart phone, depending on model and size. Whatever you decide you need to be able to retrieve quickly, the Kube delivers. I just ordered a second one for the other side of the shoulder harness.

Plenty of room for knee braces and armored under pants.
The pockets on these pants are so small, I would not even know what to put in them. As I wear a bit of a longer jacket the zippered vents when opened all the way are rendered completely useless and do not add any air flow at all.
The construction is solid and good materials have been used.
The size chart does not match up for these pants, as they are a much older model and the sizing has since changed. The pants are very, very short and were not available in a long pant leg for my size. When seated on the bike, with feet on the pegs the bottom of the pant leg barely covers the tops of my Sidi mx boots, any other lower boots and your leg would be exposed. Keep that in mind if you have longer legs and a small waist or use touring boots with these pants. These will be handy for short in city trips, as they are comfortable to walk in.Looking forward to start using them more in the fall as they are a bit warm right now. A good deal for the sales price and as a secondary riding pant. Service and delivery, as always with Revzilla was quick and perfect.

I have just gotten back into street biking last year, after a long break of ten years. I was using my old Alpinestars SMX GoreTex boots when I realized how far along on a technical and safety stand point boots have come. The AStars had no lateral support and did not feel adequately safe anymore.
I have raced Supermoto for many years and I have seen what a broken foot or ankle looks like. During my racing years I had been sponsored by Sidi and always felt comfortable and safe in their boots and so I made a choice to stick with Sidi and try their ST boot. I wear a size 9.5 to 10 in regular shoes and the size 44 from Sidi fit me perfect. Absolutely no break-in time, felt super comfortable right out of the box. No mis-shifts, no slipping of the pegs. I like that I can adjust the calf diameter in a cinch, as I sometimes use riding pants that will go over the boots and other times my one-piece suit which goes inside the boots. In side by side comparison the Sidi boot is so much more stiffer without feeling like my foot is boxed in or hampered in any movement. I can not even feel the extra rigidity the boots provide, but it sure gives me a piece of mind.
Getting in and out the boots is very easy and quick. I just wish that they would import the GoreTex version that is available in Europe, as I now have to carry a set of rain covers for the boots. Overall the quality is great and I am very satisfied with my purchase. As always Revzilla's service is excellent

First of all thank you to all the reviewers that pointed out that this shorts run a size small. I went a size up when ordering and as most reviewers mentioned the waist fit was correct, but the leg openings are rather on the small size. I have just finished a 1000+ mile trip ranging from forty to nine five degree weather and I never even noticed wearing this shorts. The tailbone protection was not noticeable at all, even sitting on the bike for a three hour non-stop run. They do make me feel a lot safer and fit comfortable under my riding pants. They have broken in nicely and the leg openings have stretched out enough that they fit very well now. A good price for a peace of mind.

One of the small gripes about the BMW F800R is that the mirrors do not extend far enough out to give you a well enough view of what is behind you. As they are also not particular visually pleasing it was time for a change. I mounted CRG Arrow mirrors on both sides and accomplished multiple things:
the bike has a much cleaner and slick look; I can actually see everything clearly behind me. The image is very much distortion free, as well as vibration free, which was another culprit of the original mirrors. I highly recommend these mirrors. The quality is top notch.

Just returned form a thousand plus mile trip. I used the Kriega US-5 dry bag to attach to my Kriega R15 back pack.
Great way to stash things away that need to stay dry and out of the way. Once mounted onto the back pack it does not hinder the use of the back pack or get in the way of opening all the compartments of the back pack. Any items like electronics, wallet, etc. that need to stay dry will stay dry, as most of the Kriega back packs are water resistant but not waterproof.
It does what it says it does, that simple. Easy to use and easy to mount to the back pack. If you already own a Kriega back pack this is a no-brainer to add some extra carrying capacity and knowing that it will stay dry.
