Using this as a charger for my iPhone 5s. The installation was quick and easy, and the quality seems very solid. Definitely recommend getting the 48" version if you are trying to push the wire toward your handle bars.
My entire set-up looks as follows (all components sold here on RevZilla except for USB-Phone cable):
- Powerlet Cigarette Socket Battery Leads Standard Duty 10 Amp
- Battery tender USB charger
- RAM Mounts Universal Cell Phone Holder Kit
- USB lightning cable
Advice for Apple iPhone 5c and 5s users: apparently, Amazon sells their own branded Apple-certified cables for cheaper. I got the 4-inch version in black that connects to my phone without any unwanted cable mess. $13, delivery included.

I was looking for a nice pair of jeans or pants that would offer decent protection without making me look as if I'm on a Moon mission. And I think these jeans fit the bill quite well there - they look nice, they fit great (true to size, by the way), and they are not screaming that I'm a motorcyclist.
However, there are things that make me unhappy about my purchase. First, the top fly button got detached pretty much the first time I put them on for riding (when all the labels had been removed, of course). I did try super glue, and it worked for some time, but then it detached again.
Secondly, I still can't figure out how to place the knee pads evenly - my right knee pad is always shifted way inside. I tried everything, but nothing seems to work.
Finally, the inner stitching is for some reason leaving scratches on my fuel tank. I know some bikes have plastic or vinyl panels or the seating position solves that problem, but if you are hugging your tank with you legs and there is paint finish there, you might have the same issue as me.
Again, I love the way these jeans look, but I'll have to continue looking for a better option.

I liked the lock. I know even the sturdiest ones can be easily removed by the pros (or so they say, if you read articles written anonymously by motorcycle thieves. Those are very interesting, by the way - Google them), so I picked the one with the alarm hoping that breaking it without getting noticed would be harder.
The sad thing is, my lock broke today. The sadder thing is that it happened while it was in the bag as I was riding my bike, so there was next to no abuse, except for some obvious moderate vibration. There is only one removable part in the lock - the black metal bottom piece that you remove to replace the battery. It has some type of "chip" that helps the lock sense the movement. That part is lockable, but the metal piece that holds it attached to the lock itself was probably glued to the lock instead of being welded or cast together with the lock, so mine got detached.
Here's hoping Zena's return policy is good. Will update my review when I find out more.

This is the first pair of motorcycle gloves that I own, so I'll try to stay very unbiased, having very few points of reference.
I was looking for gloves that would work well across a wide range of temperatures. I snowboard too, so I know that my palms have a tendency to get a little sweaty, so ventilation was important too. Looking at the description and all the reviews, I figured this would be the best option.
Having used these gloves for two weeks, I am very pleased with the quality, protection, and amount of airflow they provide. I ride a naked bike and have no hand guards, so air flow is not an issue for me. So far I've ridden in temperatures ranging between high 50's and low 90's (roughly,14 to 33 C) and they felt very comfortable. I wear my gloves under the sleeve of my jacket, but they could go over it too, in case you are wondering.
Sizing-wise, the circumference of my palm measured 9 inches, so I went with size 9. It fits me very well, even though at first the my right hand fingers felt a little cramped. Maybe the gloves stretched, or I stopped putting them on so forcefully, but the fit is good now.
As far as styling goes, all my gear is black, so I wish all the inside of my gloves was black and not grey, but I can live with that.

Pros:
- Great casual look (even with the knee protectors in)
- Lots of pockets
- Ability to insert knee protectors
Cons:
- One of the buttons in the fly area fell off the first time I put them on
- Stitching is starting to get undone on the rear left side. Could be an exceptional thing and I'm trying to be careful, but this may be symptomatic of poor stitching in general
- Knees feel a little uncomfortable when on the bike with the protectors inserted.
Sizing-wise, I am usually size 32 or 33. Got these jeans in size 32 after talking with a Revzilla sales associate and they fit very well - not too loose, not too tight.
As far as the knee protectors go, make sure you turn your jeans inside out to insert them. The height of the protector is in fact adjustable with the Velcro fasteners.
Overall, I'm still keeping my jeans for the looks and protection, but my pair didn't turn out perfect. Maybe other people will have better luck with quality.
