I gotta agree with ZZ Top on this one - cheap sunglasses rock - at least in this case. So far these have been great sunglasses for me. I originally bought two pairs (one tinted and one clear) at my local bike shop for $20 a pair. I accidentally snapped the ear piece on one pair when I hung them on a loop on my tank bag and pulled them out too quickly, so I bought some replacements from Revzilla. I like the way these fit my rather large head (I wear an XL Arai helmet). The foam around the eyes does a good job of sealing out the wind and dust when I have my faceshield open. The ear pieces are thin enough to fit comfortably into my helmets, but they can break if you abuse them. The lenses are good quality and do not distort my vision. The tinted gray lenses are dark enough to be comfortable in bright sun, but not so dark that you need to pull them off as soon as the clouds appear. Also, the gray lenses do not distort colors like a blue or amber lens does. And these are so cheap that I don't feel awful when I drop or step on them like I do with my RayBans or other expensive brands. They may not be the most stylish sunglasses I've owned, but they're not the ugliest either. All in all, I give them two thumbs up.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I've had these on my R1200GSA for about 3500 miles now, and they appear to be wearing extremely well. I had them installed in the middle of a 5400 mile roadtrip to replace my set of Anakee 2's that came with the bike. From the looks of things, they should go 10K miles fairly easily. Although the roadtrip consisted of a lot of straightline roads with a moderate load (rider and about 100 lbs of luggage), these tires appear to be resisting squaring off fairly well. On the twisties, they stay planted firmly even when running the rear to the edges. I'm not a knee-dragger in the corners, so these tires give more than enough grip for me. Wet road performance was also excellent, and I never noticed a loss of grip even under hard braking. I'm a fan of Michelin tires. They're a little pricey, but they're worth it in my opinion.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Bought these recently and have half a dozen days of riding in them with temps ranging from high 30s to 90 degrees. Kept my hands warm (with heated grips) in the cold, and cool and ventilated in the warm weather. Very comfortable and easy to break in. Size runs a tad small, so I ordered an XL when I normally wear a large. They seem well made and durable, but only time will tell. So far, couldn't be happier even though they're a little pricey.
Yes, I recommend this product.

REVIT Seesoft Back Protector Insert The revolutionary new 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) .

Bought this for extra back protection for my new Levante jacket. Fits the designated back pocket in the jacket perfectly. Very comfortable to wear - barely notice it's there. Seems like it offers good protection, though I hope I never have to find out.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Bought these to wear under Sidi Adventure and MX boots. Good over the calf coverage, and thick enough to prevent pressure points from the boots. A little on the warm side for hot weather, but that's to be expected. They also seem to snag fairly easily on my boots, so not sure how they'll wear over time. For the price though, they seem like a bargain.
Yes, I recommend this product.

REVIT Levante Jacket For those who dont want to choose between a waterproof, a traditional leather, and an air-mesh jacket, the REVIT Levante is a silver-bullet solution. This jacket, which comes fully equipped with CE-approved armor at shoulders and elbows, features a full mesh outer shell with an easily removable two-in-one fully waterproof thermal liner that can be stored in the back pocket when not in use. With the membrane removed the jacket can be upgraded with a Challenger cooling vest insert to take the edge off riding in hot weather. PROTECTION FEATURES Outer shell polyester rib, PWRshell mesh, Insulation detachable 2-in-1 thermal liner membrane Waterproofing detachable hydratex G-liner (5000mm H2O) Breathability detachable hydratex G-liner (5000g/m2/24hrs) Composition Outer shell 100 polyester Lining 100 polyester Membrane 100 polyamide (100 polyurethane coating Lining membrane 88 polyester, 12 polyamide (insulation 100 polyester) Protection Knox Flexiform CE protection at shoulders and elbows Back Protector (sold separately) Seesoft Back Protector -Type RV Type RV / Size 04 fits SM-MD Type RV / Size 05 fits LG-2XL Type RV / Size 06 fits 3XL-4XL Visibility laminated reflection at upper arms, reflective logo at back ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit Tour fit, regular Adjustability UTA tab at cuffs, flexisnap, adjustment straps at waist and upper arms, adjustment tab at under arm Ventilation ventilation panels at chest, back and arms Features Prepared for Challenger Cooling vest insert, prepared for Vest Connector HV, stretch lips at elbows, short connection zipper, jeans loop Pockets Stash pockets, membrane storage pocket, hand warmer pockets, inner pockets

Bought this in silver along with silver Airwave pants. Fit and finish on both appear top notch. Have worn it a half dozen days so far in temps ranging from high 30s to 90 degrees. I'm 6'0", 185 lbs, wear a 42L jacket with a 33-34 inch waist, and the XL Levante fits great. Large was too tight in chest and shoulders. With liner in, the jacket is comfortable into the low 50s to upper 40s with a long sleeve thermal underneath. I live in CO, so temporary lower temps are common over high mountain passes. With the liner removed, airflow is excellent through the chest, arms and midsection. The light colored jacket and pants really reflect the sun and help keep you cool in warm weather. I've worn in temps approaching 90 degrees and was very comfortable when riding. The jacket and Airwave pants look great and zip together. Only complaint is the front envelope pockets bunch up a bit in riding position, but I ride a BMW GS, so I sit pretty upright. Might be more problematic in a more aggressive riding position. Liner zips in and out quickly and easily. I added the upgraded REV'IT back protector, and it's comfortable enough that I forget it's there.
Yes, I recommend this product.

REV'IT! Airwave Pants The perfect match for the REV'IT! Airwave jacket, these trousers are also great over-pants to wear on top of your jeans during summer commutes. The large air mesh panels allow for maximum cooling, but that's not all they're on and off in seconds, thanks to the long inside zippers. Reflective panels at the lower legs ensure great visibility at all times. Even more, the Knox Flexiform CE-approved armor is located in height adjustable pockets, allowing you to position the armour just the way you like it. Available in classic black or fresh silver. PROTECTION FEATURES Outer shell polyester 600D , PWRshell 500D stretch, PWRshell mesh, polyester rib Visibility laminated reflection at calf Protection Knox Flexiform CE protection at knees, prepared for TRYONIC Seesoft CE-level 1 type B hip protector insert - version RV01 ( sold separately ) ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit tour fit , regular Adjustability adjustment straps at waist, adjustment tab at ankles Ventilation ventilation panels at legs Features easy entrance zipper at calf, adjustable protector pockets, short connection zipper, elastic at waistband Pockets slit pockets

Bought these in silver to match a new silver Levante jacket. I'm 6'0", 185 lbs, with a 33-34 inch waist, and these fit great with the waist adjustment cinched up. I wear them with just athletic shorts underneath in warm weather, but can add a fleece base layer for cooler temps. They look great and zip together with the Levante jacket. Only complaint is the limited pocket space with the two zip-closed side pockets. Good for a set of keys, but that's about it. Could use some thigh side pockets, but that might cut down on the cooling airflow.
Yes, I recommend this product.
