This is probably the most comfortable riding jacket I've ever had. The outer jacket material is tough yet bends easily. The zip in hoodie is extremely soft and provides ample warmth and comfort. I'm not a fan of the monkey paw sleeves on the hoodie, but, functionally they make it easier to put the hoodie back in the jacket so I don't count that as a negative. Pockets everywhere, including the concealed carry pocket. (note: with the hoodie zipped in the cc pocket isn't immediately accessible so be wary of an increase in draw time when using this setup), if you aren't carrying you could use the pocket for some other more fragile objects (such as sunglasses) and have it protected by the extra padding provided.
Style wise this jacket doesn't look like a motorcycle jacket. The armor isn't so big that it adds noticeable extra bulk and resembles one you might see in a regular store. Even other riders don't realize it's an armored jacket, or a riding jacket at all for that matter. Prepare to get some comments from the ATGATT crowd.
I got the "vintage black" color, and I have to say, it's not black at all. It doesn't even look like denim as it does in the picture. It's more of a light gray color. I still like it, just not the color I was expecting. Google for some more accurate pics.
My only real complaint is protection. The included armor is CE rated and provides some degree of protection, however, it's a lower standard than some of the other armor you can buy which was a bit disappointing, but of course the armor is removable and can be replaced with a higher standard armor, which I'll probably end up doing.
In all, I definitely recommend this product if you want a casual jacket that doesn't look out of place off the bike.
9/10 would buy again.

This helmet is one of the lightest I've seen at 3 lbs. and one of the most inexpensive carbon fiber I'm come across. Pairs great with the Lumino transition face shield.

Two Brothers P1X Power Tip Many municipalities and tracks have begun to implement new, tougher regulations that limit the sound output of street bikes, offroad cycles and ATVs. Two Brothers Racing has developed a series of highly effective sound reducing tips which can help you be compliant. Two Bros' P1X PowerTip sound suppressor is a recommended accessory for our exhaust systems with M or S1R series endcaps. A straight-through sound diffuser, the TBR PowerTip quiets the pipe about 7-8 dB with no significant reduction in horsepower. May be used with a spark arrester screen. Easy to install - simply unbolt your existing M or S1R series endcap, drop in the P1X and reassemble. P1 Power Tip also available for 3-4 dB of sound suppression.

First of all the quality of the leather is excellent. Much thicker and heavier than other leather jackets I've had. I thought this would make the jacket too warm considering the lack of perforations in the chest. I was wrong. Roland Sands has engineered this jacket to breath very well through the underside of the arms. I really can't figure out how it works so well. I wouldn't, however, wear this jacket in weather above 80-90 °F depending on humidity. Overall the build quality is excellent and paired with the armor makes me feel well protected. It's hard to justify the price, but If you're willing to put down the money this jacket is highly recommended.

REVIT Seesoft Back Protector Insert The revolutionary REVIT See Soft CE-Level 2 back protector is designed to absorb multiple impacts without compromising on comfort, ventilation or freedom of movement. The highly impact-resistant blend of Nitrille and Polynorbornene rubber results in a memory foam that is multi-impact rated and CE Certified to the highest level of prEN 1621-22010 level 2. In the case of severe angular impact, the individual Memory Foam layers will shift relative to one another, resulting in impact dispersion over a larger effective surface area and therefore minimizing the energy that is transmitted to the spine and back. The Seesoft back protector performs extremely consistently in all weather conditions and is unaffected by temperature ranges from -4 F to +104 F (-20 C to +40 C). Most REV'IT jackets are designed to accommodate a Seesoft CE Level 2 back protector insert. Newer jackets will have a marking on the protector pocket that indicates the matching type and size of the protector. For additional information, please see the Seesoft Back Protector Insert Fit Chart (pdf) or follow the sizing in the description on the product's page.

I purchased the RV size 5 insert of my XXL Sand 2 jacket.
First of all, you should always upgrade the back protection in your jacket. I have yet to find a jacket that actually comes with real back armor.
The seesoft back protector earns it's name. This is the most flexible CE-Level 2 rated armor I've ever seen. The flexibility coupled with the light weight and form factor of the RV cut makes this the most comfortable I've ever owned. I feel this new style of protector is a step forward and believe it puts Rev'it at the head of the pack when it comes to back protectors.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Style wise looks like a pretty normal sneaker. I bought these so I could wear them to work without looking goofy.
Protection wise these offer better protection then most other riding shoes I've worn. Obviously not as much as a proper boot, but this is a good compromise, both in protection and comfort as this is one of the more comfortable riding shoes I've worn as well. Also, the perforations in this shoe make it great for hot weather.
Overall this is a great shoe. At the sub $100 price point, it's a deal.

 Bell RS-1 Gearhead Helmet
Bell RS-1 Gearhead Helmet
Bell RS-1 Gearhead Helmets The Bell RS-1 Gearhead Helmet comes in either a red/black or black/white color scheme. Regardless of the color you choose, the graphic on this lid has depth and detail and a high level of reflectivity. Part of the Bell RS-1 Helmet line, the Gearhead bridges the gap between the top-of-the-line Bell Star and the value-minded Vortex with an amazing blend of mid-line price and high-end performance. The shell is a lightweight Kevlar/fiberglass composite making this helmet lighter than both the Star and the Vortex. The fit is a race fit, so more snug but still very comfortable due to the Contour Cut Cheekpads and a plush, removable, washable liner. Packed with features, its one great helmet at a modest price. Features Contour Cut Cheekpads Integrated speaker pockets for audio speakers Removable/Washable Liner Agion (R) Antibacterial Liner MagnaFusion Strap Keeper Snell M2010 Certification Velocity Flow Ventilation Super Stable Aerodynamic Signature 3Mode Shield - Lock, Ratchet, Crack ClickRelease Shield Mechanism NutraFog II Anti Fog Coating Kevlar/Fiberglass Shell Comes with clear face shield only Five-year Warranty

As far as sizing goes there's no surprises here if you're familiar with Rev'it's jacket sizes. I'm 6'1" 240 lbs with a 45" chest so I wear XXL.
First of all I live in Louisiana. My primary concern for this jacket was hot weather performance. The amount of airflow through this jacket is well above what I expected for a non-mesh jacket. It can easily be worn up to 80 degrees comfortably. Above that you can add the challenger cooling vest. The lowest temperature I've worn this vest is about 45 degrees. At that temperature I used both the waterproof and thermal liners. It got pretty warm. I could see this jacket being worn into very low temperatures and it's loose enough to wear layers underneath if necessary.
The zippers, straps, and buttons on this jacket are probably the easiest I've ever used with gloves on. You can tell a lot of thought and design went into this.
I would complain about the price of this jacket, but considering this jacket is like 3-in-1, it's hard to. My only real gripe is the back protection. I know it's normal for jackets to not come with real back protectors, but they really should.
Overall I'm not surprised. I've used many Rev'it products and this is just another great addition to the lineup. Definitely recommended.
