First of all I will talk about the fit. My measurement around my knuckles is 8.5". From the tip of my middle finger to the bottom of my palm is 8.5". I usually wear a large in mechanix brand gloves (for a reference) but I tried Alpine Stars gloves on at a bike dealership and I was an x-large in all of their gloves. So I got the x-large in the SP-1 and they fit great.
The gloves look beautiful (red-white-black) and are really comfortable. It's about 60 degrees here and they are my hands are a comfortable temperature, I don't think they will be flowing a ton of air when it is hot but I also don't think they will get uncomfortable in the heat either, but I won't know for sure until it gets warmer out. Quality seems top notch and again just a fantastic looking glove. Thanks again Revzilla.

First of all I will go over my size. I am a 10.5m -11m in USA and I ordered a 44 and it is a perfect fit. I can't be sure but it may be a little snug if you have a wide to x-wide foot. I got this shoe on closeout so it was about 150 which isn't bad considering some Nike shoes are going to cost you that much. I was looking for something I could ride in and wear off the bike as well and this fits the bill. It is a little difficult to get on but it's more just finding the proper technique for donning than anything else. Great shoe, too bad Revzilla won't be carrying them anymore.

This product is attractive but you can get bar ends that look just as good if not better for half the price or less, so in my opinion there is no reason to spend this much on bar ends, in retrospect I feel like I should have gone a different route when choosing this product. I ride a 2003 cbr954rr and it has the stock bars on it and this product just barely fit, it was too small, I had to put a pair of vise grips on the bar end and crank down the bolt to work the mechanism that tightens it is and although I wrapped the bar end in denim before I put the vise grips on it I still managed to scratch it. It doesn't feel like it will vibrate out but even after I worked so hard to get it tightened in due to the nature of the mechanism for tightening it has play in it and you can sort of wiggle it back and forth. To summarize I would say spent $20 bucks on your bar ends and they will probably be easier to install and look just as good... maybe better, there is no reason to spend $40 on bar ends.

This product looks great and feels very good when its on the bike. I will say that some what one of the other reviewers is accurate and the rubber is a little thin, but if you install the grip properly you will not damage it and once it is on i'm sure it will last for years and years. I have the red and the grip looks fantastic along with my red levers.

The backpack looks great and has some rider specific functions that are really useful. Like another reviewer said the pack is much heavier than you would think, but I don't know that it affects anything, It doesn't bother me. There is plenty of space and the inner pockets are well placed and well designed. What another reviewer said about what you can fit (laptop, gym clothes "shoes, shorts, shirt" and water bottle & protein shaker along with lunch for work would about fill this pack up but what more do you need to take with you.The pack is a little difficult to get on, having the chest sleeve for i.d. and whatnot attached helps me find the strap and makes it a bit easier. without it it may be a little difficult to get a hold of the left strap to pull over your shoulder to hook the clasp. And like another reviewer pointed out that clasp being plastic may put its durability into question... time will tell. Overall its a great pack, priced a little high for what it is in my opinion but I am happy with my purchase.

My dimensions:
ht: 6'
wt: 195lbs
chest size: 47"
waist size: 35"
This jacket is a high end product that is worth every penny. The quality is great and the style can't be beat, the jacket literally looks like a million bucks, I think my wife is even attracted to me again when i'm wearing it! As far as sizing goes just order according to the chart, I was going between the 52 and 54 even though the chart said 58 just because i didn't think there was any way I should need a coat that big, well I ended up sending the 54 back because it was way to small and ordered the 58. So just measure your chest size and order the appropriate size coat and it will fit perfectly and look incredible.

My Dimensions:
Ht- 6'
Wt- 195lbs
Waist- 35"
Inseam- (bottom of heel to upper part of inside of leg) 34"
With the above measurements I ordered a large and they fit perfectly weather i wear them over jeans or on their own. They flow tons of air and are incredibly comfortable. On a hot day with a pair of jeans you wont even know you are wearing them. The knee guards and hip armor feels solid and sits in exactly the right spot. Especially at this price point i couldn't be happier.

I purchased this glove and I must first admit that I should have sent the large back for an xl because at first the large did feel slightly snug. I thought that the large would stretch, but after a month of wear the glove hasn't stretched at all. The problem I had with the gloves is that the stitching in the fingers were cutting into the tips of my fingers which was cutting off circulation and causing my fingers to go numb when wearing them for any duration of time, I actually ended up cutting the tips of the fingers off so that I could wear the gloves until I can get a replacement glove. I went to a local dealership and they had the gloves there so I had an opportunity to try on a pair of xl and 2xl, both pairs were looser that the large but the stitching in both was still very uncomfortable and while the larger sizes may have not cut off the circulation I still would not have been able to wear them comfortably.To summarize:
Style:
The gloves look great, I like that the way the colors are simply accents which makes them able to match your bike and other gear easily.
Protection:
The gloves have all the protection where it is needed. I'm sure they would protect you adequately in case of a crash. At least as adequately as a short style glove should be expected too.
Value:
The quality of the materials the gloves are constructed of is fine. The gloves would probably last you forever under normal wear and tear circumstances. But there is just the issue of the stitching which I may say may be a result of them being a cheaper glove, 58.49 is of course not "cheap" but when compared to the quality of the premium brands such as Alpine Stars and Dianase, I would say when it comes to value with motorcycle gear you always get what you pay for.
Note: I would like to mention that when I was at the dealership they had the Alpine Stars smx-air carbon gloves and I took the time to try them on in a size xl and 2xl and the xl fit great and the stitching I have been mentioning was non-existent. And at 69.95 they are in my opinion a more comfortable, higher quality glove at only and extra $11.46 are worth considering as well.
