I wnated a Vest to put all the Patriot Guard patches and some of my veteran patches on and sometimes we are required to have High Visibility gear, this was a perfect solution and after completing a mission I can take the vest off. Love it.

So far it has proven to be an excellent product I wish you could get this lens for some other helmets. And the only thing I'm still trying to figure out is what to use to clean it when I'm on a trip or even locally if the shield gets too dirty. Only gudinace is to not use chemicals, just mild soap/water which is not easy to do while out riding.

I have a number of these and most of my riding buddies have bought them. This purchase was for my Sister and her Husband both ride and we were going on a trip together. It is easy to install, easy to pair the headsets, and easy to use once set up and in operation on the helmet, It also easily pairs to an iPod. When is use the jog dial is great you can use it with a gloved hand. The range is also great. A really good product.

I also have the rain version of this boot it is great for around town and commuting. I think it provides good protection, has a nice thick sole which should last longer, and has good styling.

I needed a boot for toruing on my diffrent bikes, Victory, HDXR1200, and Ducati Monster/ST3. I have race boots for the track, 3/4 height boots for local rides/commuting, but need a do all boot for long rides/tours. I finally selected these that are perfect, fit good, not too heavy, thick sole that should last, and the gortex for rain protection. They are not too hot either which is the only concern I had about this boot. Very happy with this purchase and of course the service from Revzilla. - Gene

Great cover, I have tried others but I always come back to this one. The XL size fits 2 of my bikes, the Victory Kingpin, which has custom Bags and a Corbin fairing, and my Ducati ST3. The cover has usually lasted me 2 seasons outside from March until Mid-December, although one I had lasted 3 seasons. It is well made and the weight and fit is good for windy days.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I have a similar pair of these with Ducati Label and they are great for riding my Ducati's, but with no rear pocket and hard armor they were no great for riding the Victory's or the XR1200 so I purchased the Trophy Jeans. They are great, exactly what I thought they would be, fit is good, leather is soft, armor is also just right. I had to have the legs shortened but the design made tailoring easy.
Yes, I recommend this product.
