I had ordered another tail bag from Revzilla and was not satisfied, they recommended this bag and worked out a return and got this one to me fast. I do love how easy it is to get on/off the bike, all pockets can be locked for safe keeping. I just got it so Durability has not been assessed, however, with metal D-Rings and the material I imagine great service out of this bag.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Great face shield, for what I paid for my Quest it should have been included. About every two weeks I have to gently press it to the face shield else it fogs up. Rode in Northern VA weather as cold at 16F.

Thanks to Tito and the team at the Philly store I have this great suit, I am 74 inches tall but needed to go to 3XL due to the inside suit size, but this has great adjustments and fits great. The legs have built in hem ability but I am holding off on that now. Rode in cold but dry 38 degree weather in Virginia, with the liner and a base layer and was warm and comfortable. My first suit and very affordable and no sales tax. I have the High Vis color.

REV'IT! Glacier Pants Complementary to the GLACIER shirt, these round knitted pants are purpose-built for colder days. The pants are made of a mixture of strong polyamide and stretch elastane, and treated with an anti-bacterial finish to maintain freshness. Soft and comfortable, the GLACIER pants feature extra insulating areas at the thighs, knees, shins, and crotch, which are essential for locking out the cold during winter rides. With these pants, all you need is a simple wind-blocking outer shell, without insulation properties, to keep you in the comfort zone. PROTECTION FEATURES Outer shell polyamide Composition 93 polyamide, 7 elastane ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit regular Features Seamless in 3D round knit technology Insulating function Antibacterial finish Odor control Insulation guards at knee, thigh and shin Airvent zone at hollow of the knee, autofit waist and hem

I have worn these through sub 40 cold mornings and nights both Interstate and Backroads over this past week. Fit great and kept my legs from freezing under my joe rocket kevlar jeans. I thought they would be warmer, as my thighs got cold but not numb. I have only had them a week so cannot comment on durability. Ordered them via the phone, and revzilla was great in delivery and I do think there were worth the higher price Revit has.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I have a 2XL, Tall and it fits great with layers or can use the side adjustments to fit without. I am 6ft2, 240, and wear 18/36 shirts and this jacket fits perfectly. In the hot and humid VA summer, while riding without the panels in, it flows well. The zip in vest is too thin and for cold mornings, its tossed in my closet. Its easy to find on clearance and love it.

The knee protection will not stay in place while on the bike with forward controls, constantly they are sliding outward causing me to reposition them, and although adjustible, they cut into my knees while off the bike. Length and fit are true to my jeans and they look great. The Kevlar is plenty and blocks then wind when riding.
