These are very nice summer gloves for the price. God bless you if you can figure out AGV's sizing chart-what the heck? I always wear a medium glove, even when reviewers write to order a size up cause the glove runs small, I still get the mediums, and they always fit. Not these. The mediums were so short that my fingers were jamed against the end so much so that I could not wrap my hands around the grips without discomfort. The width was nice, but the length way too short. So I got the size large. My fingers touch the ends but not uncomfortably so. The width is a bit loose but not too bad.
The "two finger intake vents" are really the mesh of the ring and pinky fingers, which move a terrific amount of air under and out the back of the knuckle armor. There are no vents under the plastic guards on thr first two fingers.
Other than being sized for the hands for the dwarfs of Middle Earth, they are darn nice.
When I wear through these I would buy another pair for sure.

KN Oil Filters KN Oil Filters are designed to satisfy the needs of racers and engine builders as well as the average motorcycle or ATV owner who wants the best oil filter available. KN Oil Filters trap harmful contaminants while the filter's construction allows for high oil flow rates. The 'spin-on' oil filters feature a heavy-duty metal can. Most have a 17mm nut affixed onto the end that allows for easy installation and removal. The 17mm nut is cross-drilled so racers can safety wire the filter.

Not much to say about an oil filter other than it works. The KN-151 fits my G650GS perfectly and does not leak.

I have tried on the old style of Gerbings heated pants and these do not measure up. The fit as everyone is writing is small. I'm 5'10", 165 lbs, wear a 34/32 size pants and I had to order an XL (which I'm sorry to say I'm not keeping). DO NOT go by your pants size. Take a tape measure and go around that gut (37" on me - give me a break, I'm an American) and then order one size up. I have no idea what Gerbing was thinking when they came up with that size chart, did they actually try it out? I tried a Large and the snaps were an inch or so way. The XL was falling off loose but there are take up straps on the sides. The deal breaker is they were too short, almost to the top of my tall boots when I sat on my bike. Revzilla needs to carry Long lengths if they make them. Gerbings makes a big deal about their "made in the USA" items but they fail to say where these are made, that's because they're made in Vietnam. The quality of the stitching is mostly good. The outer pant does not seem tough enough to take a fall and there is no hip padding. Also while there are side zippers for both the outer pant and inner H2O proof liner (the zipper goes just above the knee) there is NO zipper on the heated liner, only an open seam from the ankle to mid-calf. You are NOT going to get these on or off with boots on. I also question how much cold air that snap vent on the thigh will let in when closed, as it only is "closed" in the corner. Not the best design, should be Velcro or zipper. Oddly there are Velcro strips across the calf that seem to suggest that the flap over the side zipper will adjust tighter below the knee-worthless.
All that being said I may have kept them if the length was right but there are too many short comings for a $300 pant. Revzilla is awesome for returns and very helpful.
