Wolfman Blackhawk Tank Bag The Blackhawk Tank Bag fits in between the compact Enduro Tank Bag and the Explorer Lite Tank Bag . It's 8-liter capacity and trim lines give it great clearance for off-road riding. The curved base contours snugly to most sloped tanks. The foam structure gives the Blackhawk Soft-Rigidity, allowing the bag to flex. The redesigned clear map pocket is a step forward in versatility. They have taken the traditional Map Pocket and made it more useful to riders who use electronics Wolfman has incorporated a strip of Loop material inside the pocket, and include a strip of Adhesive Hook to attach to your smart phone, GPS, Spot, etc. so they stay put. Items can be kept organized with one stealthy outside pocket and an internal mesh pocket under the top. The silver interior makes it easy to see the contents of the bag. A small removable/adjustable bungee-cord across the top provides a convenient spot for gloves and such while fueling. Features Large #10 YKK main zipper with extended weather flap Stealthy zippered pocket right in front of the rider Reflective carry handle and side accents Interior zippered mesh pocket Interior Key Clip 1 4-point mounting harness - Same harness as the Rainier, Large Expedition, and Explorer Lite tank bags Exterior D-rings for Wolfman Shoulder Strap ( sold separately ) Optional Rain Cover available ( sold separately ) Dimensions Capacity 8 Liters Length Top 9, Bottom 11 1/4 Height Front-Facing Rider- 8, Rear 3 1/2 Width 7 Construction Full 1680 Denier P/U coated Ballistic fabric Non Skid, non-Scratch bottom 3/8 Foam laminate Body and bottom for support and hive.

I ran the Wolfman Enduro tank bag on my KTM 950. When I got a KTM 690 I wanted something bigger. The Blackhawk is the perfect size. The map pocket is 100% more usable than the Enduro's.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Wolfman Wolf Bottle Holster Wolfman designed the Wolf Bottle Holster around the popular Primus and MSR 1 liter bottles. The Bottle Holster can attach to the seat, rack or to Wolfman's Expedition Dry Saddlebags or Teton Saddlebags. (Actually, up to 4 can be attached to the new Saddlebags). This is an easy and convenient method to carry extra liquids. Features Constructed from heavy duty Ballistic Nylon 4 point Mounting, with a top strap that secures the bottle 9 long Note Wolfman recommends a 1 liter/10 circumference bottle or smaller to fit in the holster, bottles sold separately.

I have been on a quest for a year to find a simple way to extend the range of my Beta Trials bike for trail riding. Two of these strapped to the front forks work great. It gives you ~ 1/2 a gallon, easy on/off for a fraction of the cost of one of those number plate gas tanks.

I have the Phantom GTX and Dirt glove in XL. The Monster runs smaller than either of these. I think the Monster will stretch, so, not a problem. I got the monster to replace my A-start Supermoto glove. The Mosters is much better made in every way over the A-star.

The new "T5 Pro" hip pads are nearly twice as thick as the origional D30 pads. I have both. The T5 Pro are still thinner than conventional CE pads. A great improvment over the older model!

REV'IT! Dirt Gloves The DIRT summer glove offers the perfect balance between protection and ventilation. Lightweight mesh and perforated leather parts allow air to flow freely along the hands, keeping you cool. The level of safety is exceptional for a mesh glove, thanks to high-quality leather, dual-comp palm slider, Albany cowhide hard-shell knuckle, and PU-injected finger knuckles. The DIRT is comfort and safety rolled into one glove.

The Dirt is my second pair of Revit gloves. I have the Phantom GTX too. Both in XL and I find the fit great on both. I have long fingers and did not have the fit issues other reviews have mentioned.
I have been wearing them on nice winter days in the 50*s without being too cold.
As other have said - Revit gloves are the best!

I have the Gerbins Jacket, Pants and Vest. I use to Vest the most. It is perfect for short commutes all winter and it does not tax the bikes electrical system like a full heated outfit would. Yea, my arms and legs get cold on the ride into work but you are not frezzing cold all over like you would be without the heated vest. For touring where you are riding all day I use the full Heated pants and jacket.
For commuting the Vest and heated grips are a great intro into the world of not frezzing any more!
Yes, I recommend this product.

Many reviews said the pants fit was big/baggy in the lower legs. I found the Large fits me great. I can even wear them over jenes for commuting. - I'm 190lbs, and wear 34x32 pants. First ride I tried running the jacket and pants off a single channel controler - the pants got too hot while my upper body was cold. Going to upgade to a dual channel controler.
Yes, I recommend this product.

With the outer shell on the jacket is very heavy. It's basicly 2 jackets you have on. The fit is execlent and you really don't notice all the weight. Also, it's a bit of work to zip on the outer shell. All in all, I like it a lot. Just as a mesh jacket I like it better than my A-star mesh. It has a better fit for my big shoulder over a European cut A-star.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I got the Latitude as an upgrade from the Klim Traverse. The Latitude a much more fitted cut and more roomy in the shoulders. I moved my d3o armor from the Traverse to the Latitude and it makes the jacket even lighter in weight. The jacket is missing the “nylon storm cuffs” shown on the prototype in Anthony’s video. The pit vents are easier to operate than on the Traverse due to the lack of a storm flap over the zipper on the Latitude. I have yet to try the zip together feature to mate the pants to the jacket. The pants waist it so tall it looks impossible operate the zipper with the pants on.
Over all I love the jacket for 3 season adventure riding on my KTM950. I do not see wearing it in the heat of the summer. It’s the jacket I was looking for last year when I bought the Traverse
Yes, I recommend this product.

An XL in these fit good in length but way too much excessive material in the palm area. And the bulk of the fingers was way too much. I wanted and all day Adventure glove for cold weather. These were just too bulky for all day wear. I bought the Rev'It Phantom GTX which fit me 100% better.
