I commute and do some ADV stuff. Needed a replacement for my Tourmaster Transition that was VERY long in the tooth. I bought this in Hi-Viz and have a new favorite! Great American Cut (as Anthony describes it), ventilation is amazing on my KLR. There is almost nothing to nit-pick on this coat. If you are looking for a great dual sport coat or something for commuting it is terrific.
The only minor issue is that they made the waterproof pockets on the front WAY too small. About the only thing I can put in there are an extra set of ear plugs. Not sure what they designed these for because the non-waterproof chest pockets are GIANT!
Revzilla shipping was lightning fast! (I think it arrived about 30 seconds before I finalized my order) And as always all of the videos are a huge help. Thanks Anthony and everyone else at RVZ for doing a terrific job!

Bought these last September for a late fall ride in Colorado and Norther New Mexico through the mountain passes. They were fabulous. Not a lot fo venting but there is enough that they didn't feel too hot when it got warm.
If you are looking for a pant that will ofer good protection and 4 season riding, these are it. They were fantastic in 30 degree Michigan winter weather.

I bought this helmet to use for commuting on a KLR. I wanted people to see me, and there is no missing this helmet! It sticks out a lot.
I also decided to take it on a 1,000 mile adventure ride through the back trails of Northern New Mexico and Colorado the first week of October. It performed very well.
Pro's
-Felt lighter than my 5 year old Shoei
-Fantastic visibility
-easy to take off and on
-LOVE the quick fasten and release on the chinstrap!
Con's
latches were sticky which led to almost not getting it open
-airflow is a little less than expected though that worked okay on days in the high 30's
-Plastic latches for the front... just not sure how strong they will be if needed....
alot of helmet for the money and I would reccomend it highly... it was a far better product than I expected for the money.
