 Hi-Viz Brian's Beard
Hi-Viz Brian's Beard
Hi-Viz Brian's Beard Meticulously groomed over the past quarter-century, Hi-Viz Brian's beard is now available EXCLUSIVELY through RevZilla! Supplies are extremely limited, in fact we really only have one in stock. Note: The thick coarse mound and lustrous sheen are only achieved by a strict diet comprised solely of dead dolphin.

While certainly of high-quality and clearly the result of extensive development and refinement work, this product is a poor value for the money.
Beards of this ilk and plentiful and available from a great number of sources in the Fishtown and Port Richmond area.
Not certain this model differentiates itself enough to be considered worth the expense, but that is ultimately up to the customer.

Quality and fit are excellent as Arai face shields always are.
The amber color I chose is the most orange of any amber colored shields or glasses I've had. Don't know if I'll be able to get accustomed to it.
Purchasing tinted optics online without seeing in person is just a tough proposition, I guess. Hate to keep buying until I get one I like.

 Gerbing 12V Portable Single Temp Controller
Gerbing 12V Portable Single Temp Controller
Gerbing 12V Temp Controller (Single / Portable) Dial in your comfort level with a simple turn of the dial! Unlike older rheostat type thermostats, Gerbing's coreheat12 digital temp controllers draw just enough current to maintain the heat you need. Our Temp Controllers allow you to adjust for your desired heat output of our 12v products. Gerbing's Temp Controllers are not designed to be used with our 7v products. If you intend to use this to control both a jacket and gloves simultaneously, you'll also have to purchase a Splitter . It is highly recommended by RevZilla that you purchase a Dual Controller if you are thinking of wearing multiple heated items as you will save money in the long run. Features: Dial in your level of comfort Digital controller insures that your heated clothing uses only as much power as requested Wires are UL listed and completely safe, in all weather conditions 1 Year Warranty Attach this controller to any solid object with Velcro, or attach to your belt with our convenient, optional clip-on case

Product works fine. Construction quality appears high. I expect it to last.
Two oddities:
1) Sometimes it will stop flashing and no longer pass current to the downstream jacket or gloves. Turning knob all the way CCW to off then back on clears this condition and the LED blinks green once again with current flowing. Not sure if this is some safety feature or a flaw. You can find yourself cold for no reason. Then you have to pull over and fumble with it before getting back on the road.
2) It would be nice if the adjustment knob had firm detents so it'd be more likely to stay in the position you chose. It's easily moved when brushed against.

REVIT Levante Jacket The REV'IT! Levante Jacket is the answer for 3 to 4 season touring. If having one jacket to get you through any type of weather sounds like your cup of tea, the Levante Jacket goes from lightweight mesh jacket to water/windproof insulating winter jacket in just a few seconds. The textile and mesh chassis is super light and when worn without the waterproof thermal liner, flows massive amounts of air to keep you cool, but when you snap in that liner you're prepared for even the coldest weather. The Levante can even be outfitted with a Challenger cooling vest to really help battle sweltering conditions. 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

This jacket is my first textile jacket after my twenty year old leather is reaching near disintegration. I was after a multi-season jacket that would be comfortable/cool enough to be worn all summer without complaint. I also needed something without brash racer-boy graphics, which I can't deal with in any form. This jacket, thus far, has succeeded in those two areas and is a pleasure to wear.
I tried four other jackets in this price range and style group before choosing the Levante. It just felt like it fit more naturally and had a higher quality construction that some of the others. The user "controls" are very well thought out . . . easily adjustable neck snap closure that can be used with gloves on, the cuff velcro which can also be operated with gloves on, the torso and bicep snug adjusters are great and and keep the jacket from billowing in the wind.
Ventilation is great with plenty of air movement even at low speed. The two external fold-over pockets are simple and the right size. The cut of the arms is long enough (I often find this a tough area to find satisfaction) to cover my wrists when riding the various bikes I ride.
Only two things I'd change to make it perfect for me: An external breast pocket and a right-handed zipper.
