I need to do a review on this jacket. I have owned a few Dainese jackets, Alpinestars jackets, AGV sport jackets, and RS Taichi jackets.
This by far is the best jacket I have worn! Its aggressive but yet, relaxed. I have attempted to wear Euro 46 in the previous "Racing" jacket. None have worked. This jacket fits PERFECT.
My body/size:
Height: 5 feet 6 inches.
Weight: 160 pounds
This jacket fits me perfect! The Arm Length is perfect(which is hard for me cause I normally have super short arms in most jackets).
The waist is perfect. Its no where near to long so the jacket does not bunch up when I go for a ride!
The biggest thing I want to emphasize on this jacket is the air flow. The perforation is AMAZING. Also, I never owned a jacket with the 3'd Bubble liner. I thought it was a gimmick. I wear this jacket and feel the air rush down my back even when I sit straight up on my zx10r.
Also, the armor hugs my body. I wear a wave g2 in the back. The arms do not move and shoulders do not move. The armor goes all the way down almost to your wrist. Perfect.
This jacket has flexibility, comfort, protection. Why wear a textile jacket when one can buy a D1 racing jacket? Breathes and feels like you are wearing nothing.

Arai Vector 2 Crutchlow Helmet The Arai Vector 2 Motorcycle Helmet is the successor to Arai's hugely popular Vector model. New features for the Vector 2 Helmet include an SAI visor similar to RX-Q and Corsair V which provides wider field of vision. A replaceable interior liner has been modified to improve air flow around the head and to provide a more comfortable fit eliminating pressure points. The ventilation system has been revamped with a larger size switch and larger rear duct which will create 50 more vacuum.. Complex Laminate Construction (CLC) shell that combines excellent shell integrity with light weight Arai's exclusive multi-density, single piece hybrid EPS liner Arai's multi-density EPS liner is like no other, comprised of up to 5 different densities in some models which is molded into a single piece The single-piece hybrid liner and its unique benefit the direct-fused contact area that each EPS call shares with its neighboring cells creates a mutual support - as one cell is crushed under impact, the surrounding cells assist with the energy absorption. (Liner pieces that are simply fitted or glued together cannot rely on such a high-level support bond.) New ACF-2 front intake vent has an oversized intake opening for better airflow, and a sliding-door mechanism to more completely close it Brow Vent Faceshield Ventilation System provides cooling air in upper face area without holes in critical forehead area of the shell or in the impact-absorbing liner material Exclusive removable 5 mm Peel - away Cheek and Temple Pad layer-provides additional level of customization and fitment Extreme peripheral view - same wider field of side to side visibility as the top-of-the-line Corsair V racing helmet (an additional 5mm on each side when compared to to previous Vector model) New tuned rear vent/wing - Air inlets provide improved interior ventilation and heat removal Hyper-Ridge band - newly sculpted lower reinforcement band provides stability and lower center of gravity for a lightweight feeling. Larger side exhaust ports to increase airflow and minimize noise Dual pivot chin vent to direct air to the rider or the shield for de-misting Reinforced shell ridges with integrated side exhaust vents Larger bottom opening for easier on and off Removable/replaceable cheek pads with 5mm peel-away layer Micro-fitting 5mm peel away cheek pad layer first introduced on the RX-Q comes standard on the Vector 2. Gives you the option of a thinner cheek pad set for a custom fit without having to purchase additional cheek pads Expanding on the 5mm peel-away cheek pads, the Arai Vector 2 is the first Arai model to offer 5mm peel away temple pads as well Interior Shape Intermediate Oval - This shape is designed for the rider whose head has a front-to-back dimension that is longer than the side-to-side dimension. This is a neutral head-shape design which tends to fit most riders well. Meets or exceeds Snell M2010 and D.O.T. standards

I got this helmet due to primarily the Cal graphic on the helmet. It POPS! It has green edges but with a neon yellow in the middle of the colors. People driving next to you will see this helmet coming! The helmet has a matt finish to it, but not a rubbery matt finish so cleaning it is very easy.
I have an RX-Q Arai, and I wish I had chosen the Vector 2 first. It breaths better and fits my head better. With the Rx-Q, I can "kiss" the inside of my helmet. It does not bother but, but its there. The Vector 2 fits much better and my mouth can no longer make contact on the inside of the helmet. They are both the same size (Small).
In the end, the helmet is super comfy. Breathes amazing! I can feel the air go through my hair! Anyone who has not owned an Arai is missing out!

I wanted a riding shoe. These are perfect. They fit on your foot like a glove. Your foot will not move around at all and they still remain very comfortable. I wore this shoe for a 12 hour day on my feet at work. These shoes never caused any pain or discomfort. They also feel like they have a good amount if protection for their price!!! Ride confident and comfy.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Okay first. Revzilla's shipping. I ordered these a day and a half ago. I got them super fast!!!! The video review sold me on these gloves.
First I owned the "off the chain" glove from speed and strength. I got them a medium and the leather in the palms bunched up. So I got these in a small. Fits perfect. The gloves weren't even 40 bucks! They also look sick with the white and black speed and strength "run with the bulls" shoes! Yes the glove does not have the best protection. But for just going to school and work (about 12 miles) these gloves are super comfortable and slick looking.
Yes, I recommend this product.
