Ordered a pair of L gloves my normal size. Hard to slip on and ringer finger hurt. Figured it needed some wear time to get comfortable. After wearing for a couple of weekend rides, they loosened a little but still hard to get on. Ordered a XL, they were even harder to slip on. I thought that maybe I was sent a women's pair. Checked the scan code and manufacturers code on Rev'it's site. Alas, they were men's. After 4700 miles this summer, the gloves are still hard to slip on and they only difference between the XL and the L is the fingers are longer. The truth is the L's are easier to slip on then the XL's (which have the 4700 miles on them).

 Wolfman Blackhawk Tank Bag
Wolfman Blackhawk Tank Bag
Wolfman Blackhawk Tank Bag The Blackhawk Tank Bag fits in between the compact Enduro Tank Bag and the Explorer Lite Tank Bag. It's 8-liter capacity and trim lines give it great clearance for off-road riding. The curved base contours snugly to most sloped tanks. The foam structure gives the Blackhawk a soft yet rigid frame, allowing the bag to flex. The redesigned clear map pocket is a step forward in versatility. They have taken the traditional map pocket and made it more useful to riders who use electronics Wolfman has incorporated a strip of Loop material inside the pocket, and include a strip of adhesive hook to attach to your smart phone, GPS, Spot, etc. so they stay put. Items can be kept organized with one stealthy outside pocket and an internal mesh pocket under the top. The silver interior makes it easy to see the contents of the bag. A small removable/adjustable bungee-cord across the top provides a convenient spot for gloves and such while fueling. While the Wolfman Blackhawk Tank Bag has a universal fit, it works especially well on the Yamaha Super Tenere. Features: Large #10 YKK main zipper with extended weather flap Stealthy zippered pocket right in front of the rider Reflective carry handle and side accents Interior zippered mesh pocket Interior key clip 1 4-point mounting harness - same harness as the Rainier, Large Expedition, and Explorer Lite tank bags Exterior D-rings for Wolfman Shoulder Strap (sold separately) Optional Rain Cover available (sold separately) Dimensions: Capacity: 8 Liters Length: top 9, bottom: 11 1/4 Height: front-facing rider- 8, rear: 3 1/2 Width: 7 Construction: Full 1680 denier P/U coated ballistic fabric Non-skid, non-scratch bottom 3/8 foam laminate body and bottom for support Silver lined interior Reinforced stitching throughout All seams are bound Legendary Wolfman design, function, construction and quality

Since I'm short (vertically challenged), I didn't want a bag that would be in my way. This bag fits the bill and is large enough to hold all my junk. Detaches easy so it looks like I am carry a camera bag or a shaving kit. Works well for me.

I like the fit and style. At first I wasn't thrilled about the ski boot ratcheting buckle but after breaking the boot in it is very useful for tightening and adjusting the fit of the boot.

I have had any helmets or the years and this one is the best I've ever worn. The fit and comfort or great. Helmet has good visibility and excellent air flow. The internal sun visor is fantastic. I use it all the time. Excellent visibility with the visor flipped down. Although the cost of the helmet is enough to take your breath away, the valve and quality more than make up for it.
Yes, I recommend this product.
