We got the dual set. We use it bike to bike with a Nolsn snd Arai helmets. Everything about it is great. Very simple to use and large knob makes adjustments at speed and with gloves very easy - no fiddeling or anything that would divert your attention from riding or traffic. Syncs perfectly with iPhone. We use it mainly to just talk back and forth - perfectly clear - we dont have to repeat or shout. Highly recommend the Sena SmH 10.

Absolutely the safest feeling mesh jacket I have ever worn. My husband also has the Turbine and it is the ONLY jacket he will wear. Both have been upgraded with the SaS-Tec back protector insert bought here at Revzilla too. The back pad that comes standard with jacket is useless and if you are wearing a jacket because you are concerned about safety - the main point of investing such a jacket, spend the money to upgrade to the SaS or a standalone CE2 back protector.
The Rev"It Turbine is very comfortable - the shoulder and elbow armor are very pliable and do not restrict movement. THe Sas-Tec is so malleable in warm weather that you really don't even know it is there - it just curves around your back and moves / molds according to your movements. The Turbine flows a lot of air as soon as you start moving and surprisingly is not uncomfortable sitting in traffic. We have the light silver colors - black does not appeal to me in a summer jacket (or pants - are you listening Rev"iT?) it just plain looks hot and uncomfortable. The Turbine is very solidly made - no loose threads etc.. The collar is super nice - soft and very low profile for summer it doesn't interfere with helmet buckling, head movement, or make you feel like you are all bundled up. I really think the jacket should come with a zip out waterproof liner like the Turbine pants do and an extra nice addition would be a lightly insulated zip-in vest or something, since this jacket can get downright cold after dark it flows air so well. (Once again, are you listening Rev"it?). I really like my Turbine - I also have a Rev"it Siren (Dragon for mens version) for non summer riding and I really like that as well - but the softness and comfort and low collar of the Turbine makes it my favorite. All padding and fabric reinforced areas are perfectly placed. For me, I a have the women's size 44 and am 5'10, 150 lb.. and usually wear a street clothes size 12 but usually get a size 14 or L in jackets and shirts because they always pull uncomfortable across my shoulders and I hate restrictive feeling clothing. (The Siren I got in size 46 because I wear it in the winter and 44 didn't allow me to wear a sweater or any extra layers comfortably once I had all the Rev"it liners zipped in). In the Turbine pants, I bought the 44 and they are really too large, I kept them because I wear them over my jeans (sure do wish they had full length leg zipper.. Rev'It?), but I am considering a pair of 42 because in the summer I usually leave the liner out and just wear over shorts and the 44 are really too big for that. I think in the event of a crash, short of leathers, the Rev'It textile line is probably my best chance for skin survival. My only real complaint for the women's line is that the colors / blocking / striping etc. is a little too masculine looking. The positive though is the women's specific line is definitely cut more to the women's shape - making notable adjustments to the shoulders and hips.
Yes, there is room for improvement but I am finding the Rev'It brand to be far superior than the competitors in fabric quality and workmanship but once you get over the "Sticker Shock" of the Turbine you will be very happy with the jacket.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Does What It Claims

This Upsilon jacket is very nice under Rev'IT jackets for added warmth and wind-blockage without adding bulk. Jacket is thin and light and VERY insulating. Will definitely extend your riding season. This jacket is identical to the Roadmaster WB Vest - which is just the sleeveless version of the Upsilon. Jacket (and vest) has a very nice finish and easily looks nice wearing it by itself, it could easily be worn off the bike and as your everyday outerwear - it is very warm and comfortable to wear. Worn under my Rev'It Turbine mesh jacket, it makes a world of difference when the temperature cools. It absolutely blocks wind - it does not allow any cold wind to seep in. I also wear it under my Siren, Dragon for the men, and it makes it markedly warmer too. I often remove the insulating layer that came with my Siren and instead wear the Upsilon or Roadmaster underneath as it makes the jacket significantly warmer. Both Upsilon jacket and Roadmaster vest do run small - have an extremely close / tight fit. I originally ordered the Medium but had to exchange it for Large. One problem with the fit could just be that I am female and it is cut for male, so the hip was too tight on the M. A male using the size chart will probably find their perfect fit without too much trouble but the women may very easily have trouble with fit - especially through the hips. I am almost 6' tall, so it makes it a little easier for me to get away with wearing a men's version. Other issue that I find that may not bother others, or the intended male wearer, is that the neck is rather stiff and rough feeling against your skin and chin. This becomes more of an issue when the vest is worn under another jacket that also has a tall zip up collar - can quickly become too much stuff around your neck. Rev'It could address this issue by making the collar of the jacket (or Roadmaster vest etc.) with a very soft and pliable material and also offsetting the zipper so everything doesn't zip directly under your chin creating a big wad of stiff rough fabric that rubs against your skin and irritates every time you move your head. The ideal solution in my opinion would be to also incorporate a hidden zipper that would allow the entire neck of the vest or jacket to be removed. Zipping off the collar when the garment is being worn as an insulating layer under another jacket and zipping it back on when the rider wants to wear this jacket, or Roadmaster vest, etc., as their top / outer layer. It might drive up the cost a little but to me the added versatility could be worth it. Hey, for that matter, why have the fully separate Roadmaster vest?? Rev'It, why not allow the sleeves from the Upsilon to be unzipped and removed via a hidden shoulder zipper? One jacket that can do many things... that is what I am looking for — this current offering is getting close but could still be better.

I am really impressed with the Turbine pants. They look good / normal on. I got these pants to replace my Olympia Airglide2 pants which I have never been fully satisfied with. The Olympia's feel slightly cooler while riding as they have a looser weave of the mesh and the panels are a little bit bigger. But, the coolness difference is pretty small. Otherwise, there is no real comparison between the 2 brands. 1st, what I think could be better on the Turbine and Rev'It pants - a full length leg zipper would be nice for getting on and off easily with shoes - I guess it is possible that it is a deliberate omission since it may not be the safest feature in a crash (Olympia AirGlide has this feature and it is very nice - but the Olympia ProMax pants also have the nice zipper but reinforce it with the full length of velcro overlap and that is a royal PITA). 2nd, the waist and hip area would be a better fit if they incorporated a hidden elastic section to make them a little more snug and form fitting in that area. As it is, I have to cinch up the belt to take in the extra material in the waist. Olympia was able to address this issue with elastic panels in the hip and also waist band - it is a simple and effective fix and one Rev'It should use - especially in their women's line. 3rd - Color. Come on Rev'It, they are suppose to be summer pants. I have black because the grey has all those black patches on the knees, inside of legs etc. that sportiness might be good for a 20 year old male, but I am a 40 year old female and do a lot of around town type riding and just like to look as normal as possible. Solid grey, solid tan, even white would be nice in summer riding pants
Otherwise, these are the first pants that I really really like. The Turbine are very soft and flexible, fitting more like a pair of jeans (I have been wearing shorts underneath) and they are actually comfortable for all day wear. The ProLife armor is comfortable and well positioned for me (but I switched out to the SaS-Tec knee pads because they are sooo flexible. But, I already had them to replace the board stiff, ill fitting kneepads that came in my AirGlides, Otherwise, I would have just gone with the stock ProLife since it too is comfortable and fits well). The pant legs are cut in a way that they seem to conform to you and feel very well made and very crash durable with the 1000D Cordura on the knees, seat, hips and down the outside of legs. The extra Superfabric abrasion panels on the articulated knees enhances the safe feeling - would be nice to have some Superfabric panels on seat and hips too but would maybe drive the pant cost up too much.
Unlike my Olympia's, these Rev'It's are not a lot of loose fitting, stiff and noisy material, these Turbine pants seem like they will stay properly positioned in the event of an accident. The thin liner zips in fully around the ankles and waist and fits the pants perfectly - they do not seem to add any bulk to the overall pant fit. I hope to use these pants year round because, although the liner is not insulated, it does fully block wind and water, so by wearing some thin wool thermal underwear I can have the warmth without the bulkiness of the Thinsulate insulated liners that so many of the manufacturers use to make a winter riding pant. All dressed in my Olympia with the insulated linings in, I feel like a little kid in a hand-me-down snow suit.
To help you out on sizing, I have the 44 women's Turbine. I am approx. 5'10' tall weigh 150+ lbs. and wear a size 12 in jeans / slacks - my inseam is 32 inches. I couldn't determine my size on the Rev'It chart and initially ordered 46 women's - I could get 2 of me in there - they were huge. The 42 was too tight through the seat and thigh area, although I wear these as an over-pant as I prefer to take them off before going into stores etc. If I was wearing them as a true pant replacement, I would have gone with 42. I would say if you are following the Rev"it size chart, these run big which is a very unusual characteristic for the Rev"it line.
Although the Turbine Pants have a few personal picky issues that I would like to see improved upon, overall, these are fantastic pants in fit, comfort and safety - money well spent.

Rev'It Siren - Near Perfect
PostedSeptember 22, 2010

C.
From MD
I love this jacket - I gave it 4 stars only because I would like see the hi-viz color option that the men's version (called Dragon) has and I would like the thermal/insulating layer to be a bit warmer - it really deserves 5 stars but my arms get a little cold and cars want to hit me. The arms are tighter fitting (with all liners in - rain/wind liner and insulating liner), so not a whole lot of extra room for an additional under jacket. I have women's size 44 - I am about 5'10 and 155+lbs and it fits me nicely (maybe if i cut back on a few cookies, I would be able to wear another sweater layer). I also wear the women's 44 in the Turbine pant if that helps you. Build wise, I consider myself to be more 'athletically' built . I am taller and have broader shoulders than the average woman, but not large chested. I did not think the Rev'It line would fit me, being cut more European slender (reason I initially chose Olympia). In street clothes I wear a 12 but usually get a 14 in tops to make the shoulders more comfortable. In winter/ski coats such as NorthFace and Ack'Teryx, I usually get womens XL. I drove all the way to the Revzilla showroom to try these jackets on (I was really shopping for the Turbine but they were out of my size and the super salesman, sorry - I forget his name, suggested I try the Siren since we were nearing the end of summer and I was griping about the bulky stiffness of my Olympia Air and AST). I was pleasantly surprised as the 'Tour Fit' cuts fit my broad shoulders perfectly.
This jacket is soft and comfortable, similar to an everyday outdoor jacket, as opposed to my Olympia (which are actually of a very high quality in construction and detail) jackets that feel and sound like stiff crunchy boards in comparison. One of the best differences between my Olympia and the Rev'It Siren (and Turbine too) is that I actually enjoy wearing the Rev'It (if you still want Olympia - mine is for sale cheap). One of the best features is that it doesn't look like a 'biker' jacket - it actually looks stylish. I can now ride to the market and wear the Siren into the store etc. without feeling like a conspicuous nut. The collar uses a soft padded material that is super comfortable - nothing binds or chafes. Nor does the collar rise so high that it interferes with your head movement with a FF helmet on (a huge complaint I had with the Olympia where the stiff tall collar always rubbed against my helmet and my head movement felt restricted in all directions). Other little attentions to detail that Rev'It includes that make huge comfort improvements are the arm cinches - Rev'It puts them on the bicep and on the forearm making the arm adjustment snug but not pinching or binding. Olympia put the arm adjuster, a stiff velcro web pinching strap, across the inside of the elbow... yea, that is really comfortable location when you're bending your arm. Another detail that I had never thought about but now love, is the liners. The waterproof liner collar is shorter than the outer jacket collar and the insulated liner has almost no collar - this really helps to eliminate bulkiness. Also, YKK zipper that attach the liners are very thin, small toothed and are short - maybe 5 inches is all going from the top down. This is really nice because it takes away much of the bulk and puckering that is caused in most jackets with zip in liners. The wind liner also has a hidden top to bottom zip for when wearing as a "destination" jacket but the insulating liner does not - I guess it is assumed you would want it either inside the real outer jacket or at least the wind/water liner jacket. I don't particularly care about pockets, but the Siren does have quite a few of them, in all sizes and locations, including one very large hidden fanny pouch that, fortunately, is completely unnoticeable (as long as it is empty at least - so, fill it at your own risk).
I want to thank the salesman that talked me into this jacket - it was a great call. He told me to write a review after I wore it for a while. He said he was thinking of getting one for his girlfriend for Christmas - well Santa, it is not quite a diamond ring, but pretty darn close.

SAS-TEC Back Protector Cutting edge SAS-TEC material is intelligent armor constructed from visco elastic soft foam smart molecules. It has earned the highest CE rating available (CE level 2), during an impact, the armor freezes and hardens, absorbing the shock and distributing its force over a large area to reduce the risk of fractures. The protector is not destroyed by impact, but reverts back to its original state and maintains its capability to protect from multiple impacts. SAS-TEC Armor has a soft and pliable exterior (as opposed to rigid KNOX armor) which offers a great deal of comfort and mobility. This protector is anatomically designed and fitted to provide superior spine and back protection as well as the base of the neck /between the shoulder blades. SC-1/11 fits Women's Turbine Jacket SC-1/12 fits REV'IT! Cayenne Pro Jacket and Turbine Jacket REV'IT Gore-Tex Jackets have different shaped back protector pockets depending on the size of jacket, see the size chart for fitment information SC-1/16 should only be used for XYL or larger Gore-Tex Jackets SC-1/11 Measurements (approximate) Height 15 3/4 Width (at widest point) 13 Thickness 3/4 SC-1/12 Measurements (approximate) Height 19 Width (at widest point) 13 Thickness 3/4 SC-1/16 Measurements (approximate) Height 21 3/8 Width (at widest point) 13 3/8 Thickness 3/4

SaS-Tec - Love it

Bought this on Revzilla's recommendation to upgrade the useless pad that came in my Rev'It Siren. It had to be trimmed with X-acto knife to fit but that was easy and fit is perfect (save your useless foam pad as template). It is so comfortable, soft and flexible that I have since bought another to use in my Turbine jacket and my husband now wants the SaS-Tec to replace the rigid Knox insert in his jackets. Highly recommend this back protector and Revzilla - you won't be disappointed in either.

Nice optically clear replacement sun shield. An Arai product - so if you know their quality, you know they did not skimp on their replacement shield either. I have the Arai Quantum 2 helmet and I got the dark smoke which to me is equivalent to wearing my Ray Ban sunglasses - that I can now leave home. It takes a few practice visor changes before you get the hang of it or feel like you are not breaking anything, but it actually does go rather quickly and smoothly once you get the hang of it. The new Arai helmets come with a video on how to change the visor. I think the price of the visor is rather steep and truly based on the cost of a new Arai they should package a sun visor along with a clear to begin with. Still, optically it is perfect - I do not wear glasses, so don't know if that would cause any problems. The Arai shield is thick and does not have any wavy distortions or optic imperfections that some poorer quality manufactures have - I had one cheap helmet that actually made me dizzy.

If you have the head shape, this is a very comfortable helmet - easy to wear for long periods of time. The annoyances I find are with the face shield - the lock/lift tab is way too small and tight for human fingers to maneuver easily. Pulling up to a stoplight where you want to flip the shield quickly for air or to talk is a royal pain and often you can't even get the thing open. The other pain is in this day of integrated sunshields, having to completely swap out shields for day or night use is a PAIN and costly at approx. 50.00 per shield. But otherwise I have no complaints and tried on every helmet I could before choosing the Quantum 2. It is very safe and secure feeling with no pressure points, itchiness - that drove me crazy with some helmet liners, does not suffer from any of the bobble-head or buffeting effect so many helmets have had. Never used it yet in hot weather but nice and warm in the cold - you definitely know if a vent on top is left open, so hopefully that will be good for moving air through in the summer. The Revzilla price on this helmet is the best I could find anywhere - nobody else, online or retail, even came close. Apparently it is getting ready to be discontinued, but I looked at the manufacturing date on mine - 4 months prior to my purchase, so Revzilla is not trying to sell something that has been bouncing around a warehouse for years like some resellers. I find Revzilla and their customer service to be AWESOME and with their free shipping, which is Lightening fast - I usually get my order within 2 to 3 days. Their better than competitive prices and service makes them the only place I look for gear anymore.
Pros Comfortable, Great Value, Rugged, Fashionable
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought an XL - so I could ad an additional sweater or jacket insulation under for cold days. I usually wear a 14 or L in everyday shirts or coats for loose / easy shoulder movement. Prior to this I have never found an armor MC jacket that fit nicely and was comfortable in all aspects. I do not want to look like a biker - hence would prefer it not to have the JR logos on the shoulders, but overall this jacket does not make me feel like a conspicuous nut in line at the grocery store. It is very nicely made, very comfortably cut, and is versatile in a surprisingly wide range of temperatures ( I've now ridden between 40F - 70F) Comes with a removable quilted vest liner, and I also add a full sleeve jacket liner from another coat when cold out. The CE shoulder and elbow armor is thick AND flexible and seems to sit tightly where it is suppose to. The back protector is thick / rigid foam - not CE but also not the soft flimsy junk some manufactures insert in the back protector pocket and then call 'armor'. I upgraded mine to the JR CE protector for an additional 80. which I feel was well worth the upgrade for comfort and protection. I tried a million different armor coats and this one is finally a winner.
