I've had this jacket for 3 weeks now. I was looking for an in between jacket. My other late fall, early spring jacket saw better days and I didn't want to break the bank. I got the Hi-Viz version for my 2 hour a day commute. The first 3 days I had it it rained. The jacket is water resistance not waterproof. The light to steady rain it kept me dry. During a heavy down pour, the water left a small wet spot on my left shoulder and right forearm. Wasn't bad considering how hard it rained.
I'm 6' 3" 185 lbs 45 inch chest. Purchased a large the fit is just fine. Plenty of adjustments for a more defined fit. Riding in temps from mid 70's to low 30's it kept me comfortable.
Quality is not bad for this price range. You can see a big difference from my high dollar jackets and this one. The set it and forget it adjustable collar snap works until you do a head check. They need to back to Velcro.
I've had First Gear jackets before, not a bad jacket for the lower end of the performance scale. If your looking for something "cheap" you can't go wrong with this jacket.

Schuberth C3 Pro Helmet The Schuberth C3 Pro has been redesigned to improve on the original C3, which was already one of the quietest and most technologically advanced helmets ever produced. The rear spoiler, which has been further optimized in extensive wind tunnel testing, turns the C3 Pro into a real sport helmet which also demonstrates outstanding aerodynamic properties at high speeds in excess of 100 mph. With its enhanced aeroacoustics of 82 dB(A) at 100 km/h the C3 Pro is one of the quietest helmets in the world. The C3 Pro also incorporates two integrated antennas for increased ranges and better FM radio reception prepared for the fully integrated communication unit SRC-System. The inner lining, made of carefully selected materials such as COOLMAX, Interpower and Thermocool, has been extensively re-shaped and redesigned and sets new benchmarks with respect to comfort. New or Updated Features Redesigned shell is more aerodynamic and provided more downforce at higher speeds with little buffeting Interior helmet sound levels have been reduced to 82 dB(A) at 60 mph C3 84 dB(A) Interior liner has been completely redesigned with fewer seams and a more universal, interior fit Improved EPS with integrated antenna for SRC-System which improves radio and Bluetooth range New micro-lock ratchet chin strap Larger reflective panels on neckroll Improved faceshield ratcheting Integrated sun visor has a new look and improved quality Acoustics A quiet helmet means active safety for the motorcyclist. This permits the rider to concentrate on riding particularly at higher speeds. Many hours in the Schuberth acoustics wind tunnel have ensured that the C3 Pro is quiet. The comprehensive acoustics package with optimized helmet shell, wind deflector and ergonomic shape of the neck padding make the C3 Pro at 82 dBA one of the quietest helmets of all. Acoustics package makes helmet quiet Installation of a wind deflector enables the aeroacoustics and consequently the noise level to be improved still further. Only 82dB(A) at 100 km per hour (with naked bikes) Outer Shell The outer shell of the Schuberth C3 Pro is offered in two helmet shell sizes and combines an aerodynamically optimal shape with excellent protection. It is manufactured using Schuberth's typical compression molding process and thus permits great stability and a low weight. Shell material S.T.R.O.N.G. fiber Helmet shell technology from SCHUBERTH permits low weight Glass fiber with a special resin added is compressed in a vacuum at high pressure to form a helmet shell which is exceptionally sturdy Perfected aerodynamics for higher speeds Upward lift 0! Directionally stable No oscillatory tendency No buffeting Spoiler integrated into the helmet shell SRC-System Ready The C3 Pro is by default equipped to accommodate the SCHUBERTH SRC-System C3 Pro (sold separately). To guarantee ideal radio reception for you, the C3 Pro is already equipped with two integrated antennas to boost reception and a Bluetooth connection. Optimum reception at all times Bluetooth antenna for wireless mobile, GPS and intercom connections to other SRC-System owners FM and Bluetooth antennas integrated into the helmet for optimum reception EPS The helmet shell of special EPS foam is modular in design to ensure optimal shock absorption. This complex segmentation guarantees enhanced force absorption and distribution and maximum safety. Made of specially optimized EPS foam Complex multizone foaming allows optimal shock absorption Inner Lining A special inner lining of the C3 Pro which was developed according to the innovative Comfort Fit concept ensures that the helmet fits comfortably and securely in all situations. The combination of carefully selected COOLMAX and Thermocool materials and the additional use of Interpower coatings also make the inner lining a highly-effective moisture removal and cooling system. COOLMAX pad system, completely removable and washable (hand wash, 30C) Optimized fit Variable for effective ventilation Adjustable for summer/winter Allergen-free Antibacterial Removable comfort cheek pads and head band pads Ventilation The C3 Pro is equipped with a further development of the proven C3 ventilation system. Thanks to the new design of the ventilation elements, the supply of fresh air is increased by up to 60. The combination of multipath channels in the EPS foam shell and the head/chin/mouth ventilation ensure that fresh air is distributed effectively over the entire head area. A.R.O.S. and Neck Strap The Anti-Roll-Off System (A.R.O.S.) especially developed by SCHUBERTH is provided as a safety feature in every SCHUBERTH motorcycle helmet. It ensures that the chinstrap is closed and correctly adjusted The helmet cannot pivot off the head from behind The risk of contact between the chin section of the helmet and the chin or throat of the rider is minimized due to the small angle of tilt The consequences of the helmet coming into contact with the chest as the result of an accident are reduced Precise setting of the chinstrap length through adjustment on both sides Micro-lock ratchet lock Face Shield The EasyChange visor mechanism makes changing visors extremely quick and simple without use of tools. City position offers maximum ventilation while traveling at slower speeds Pinlock visor prevents shield from fogging DOT and ECE certified

I've been watching this helmet for a few years now. Finally decided to drop the big bucks and get it.
At first the fit is tight but after a few rides, conforms to your head nicely. The shape seems to be an round oval. If your head is long oval, this helmet won't work for you.
As advertised, it is very quiet and light weight compared to my Shoei and Arai helmets. The drop down visor is great. The anti fog chin venting/pin lock system works great as well.
Very nice air flow. Though I found even with the vents closed in cold weather, the rear exhaust vent shoots that cold air right down the back of your neck. The colder days, I wear a high collar jacket and snug it up.
The only negative thing I can say and disappointingly so is this helmet leaks water down the inside of the face shield and dripping on my face. If I lower the drop down visor the water runs down it as well. The problem is the 32nd to 16th of an inch gap running between the helmet and the top of the face shield. (Yes, it's locked down the whole way). In turbulent wind you can feel the air and it creates excessive noise. I have yet to figure out how to adjust the shield, I'm sure there's a way. For an all but $800 for a lid, I shouldn't have too!! I've changed/replaced many different shields over the years, just can't figure this one out. (afraid I might break something).
Reading the many reviews on this helmet, only a very few have had this issue. I'd you can't go wrong with this helmet, probably the best I've owned in my 40 years of riding. Just wish I could figure out the visor adjustment. If you know how, PLEASE let me know.

If you wear glasses you can't wear this over your nose. They steam them up, big time. Slip it off your nose and it works fine. The bottom bunches up and doesn't lay nice like in the photo. This makes buttoning your collar button/snap a little tight. A properly fitted helmet is rather tight. Sometimes the neck warmer gets pushed way down when putting on your helmet. Then you have to try it again otherwise it's way too bulky around your neck. I can't wear it with my Shoei helmet with is a long oval shape. It works a lot better with my Arai which has a more round shape which I use in the winter anyway because of less venting on the helmet. Over all I like it and does it's job keeping the COLD air off your neck.

RevZilla Faceshield / Visor Bag Oversized banana pouch Smile holder Maybe. Visor tote Definitely. Don't scratch up your faceshield! Carry it along in RevZilla's handy visor tote. How many times have you put a nick in your tinted or clear shield from letting it float around in your backpack, saddlebag, or stuffed inside your jacket Never again shall your visor suffer such ignominy! Made from 600D Maxtura and padded to keep your shield snuggled up safely, this visor bag is just the ticket for keeping your shield clean, clear, and unblemished. If you have an anti-fog coating (many shields do), protecting it is the first step in having it work correctly. Rep some ZLA style with the highly-reflective logo emblazoned on the tote. A handy carry strap is included for lashing to the tippy- top of the stack of gear you take on your next trip! Note Face shield and/or banana sold separately.

Compared to my Field-sheer visor bags, the Revzilla bag has a more dense and thicker foam. My Arai visors are more difficult to place in the bag apposed to my Shoei visors. It may be a little more difficult to place in the bag but with the amount of $$ we spend on these shields, I'll put up with it for the extra protection.

RevZilla Women's Staff Premium T-Shirt Lovingly concocted in 2007 and named El Moto Diablo for its geared and devlish lines, the RevZilla Staff Tee Shirt has been part of our lineup from the beginning. The Men's version is also the same blue shirt in every video that Anthony has been rocking since day one of RevZillaTV on Youtube. People love to point out that Anthony doesn't ever change his clothes. I guess when it works you stick with it. The tee is screen printed on a high thread-count blank that is anything but one of those throw away tees you get free at the ball game. We wear tees a lot - almost every day - and we are very particular about how they fit, feel and hold up wash after wash. Sizing is true to size, if anything they run a hair on the small side. Show your love for TeamZilla. Make a statement. Boom.

Riding for 40 years, my first pinlock. A must for cold and/or rainy days. Bought 2, it's a little more convenient than swapping lens.

I bought this due to my previous Revit purchase being a little small, but if does fit my wife, so I kept it. The Olympia Horizon is very comfortable. Big enough cuffs to go over your gloves, Plenty of adjustment around the neck and waist. I rode about 45 minutes in a pretty good rain with temps in the mid 80's. Kept me bone dry. I think this is the only rain jacket (other than my Gore-Tex) that actually "breaths". I'm not sure if it's due to the two little rear shoulder vents or what, but I was no where near as hot as my previous rain jackets. It has a good balance of Hi-Viz and black. I'm well pleased with this purchase.

I'm 6' 3" 180#. I bought the large, should have bought the XL. It's a little too snug for my liking. The front zipper is on the left. I does keep you dry from rain but not the sweat. Like most rain suits it has little to no air flow. Overall a good rain jacket, just get the next bigger size.

I'm 6' 3" 180 lbs and wear 34 x 34 pant. Bought the M-LG. Placed over my summer riding pants, just above the belt and the fit is spot on. They don't seem like there going to ride up your leg in the riding position either. I'm a little concerned about the Velcro coming loose at the bottom of the pant leg, I would prefer a zipper, but we'll see. The smooth interior makes putting them on and off with all your gear on very easy. You shorter folks may have to pull them up to your arm pits to avoid hemming the pant legs and there's plenty of adjustment for the beer belly too, if you have one.
Obviously, I haven't tried their weather proofing yet, but as soon as I get some wet weather riding in, I'll post a review with the results and adjust the ratings accordingly.
Also, many thanks to Revzilla for super fast shipping.

With only a few tire choices for the BMW K1600 GTL, I thought I'd give these a try. I have 4000 miles on these tires, commuting 74 miles a day, figured it's time to give you my opinion. Dry grip is very good even at full lean on a heavy bike. Wet grip isn't to bad. The front tire gives you really good feel. In rain mode and TC on, I had the rear kick out a little on some turns. Now I'm a little leery on too much lean on wet roads. There very stable at hwy speeds even in torrential rain.
As far as tire life is concerned, these are showing relatively little wear for the amount of miles, considering this bike eats tires for lunch. The rear starting to flat spot and the front is showing the notorious ridge down the center. I should get another 4k out of these, I would most likely by again. See the attached photos, 4000 miles on the Bridgestone BT 023 GT.
