I find it hard to do technical off road clutch work in winter street gloves. Was looking for a thin but warm glove. Dual Sport has pavement sections with speeds where any dirt glove is too cold. These do the job well at road speed. With heated grips on my KTM 690 I have never got cold hands down to low 40*s and I like the clutch feel better than any other warm glove I have.. I'm generally an XL in gloves with long fingers. These fit a little wide and took a while to decide on keeping. Once washed there was some shrink-to-fit and now the fit is dead on.. Fit is much better than the original Inversion which I have too. Not a huge fan of Klim gloves in the past but these are a keeper..

I wear 34x32 street pants. Went with XL regular length. Great fit over my work clothes. Tried the XL longs and just to long and with the inside zipper the extra bulk at the ankles caught on the foot pegs. I find the inside leg zips the only negative...
Quality of the construction is excellent for the price. Daily commute pants for cold months. Best I have found, don't look like puffy ski pants..

REVIT Excalibur Jacket The REVIT Excalibur jacket is a great choice for any rider looking for a versatile, four-season performance piece. It features a removable thermal liner as well as a removable waterproof membrane, which provide significant insulation from the elements, and also can be removed and worn together as a separate jacket. When both the thermal liner and waterproof membrane liner are removed, the jacket offers the excellent ventilation of a summer jacket. Additionally, those who regularly ride in hot weather can upgrade the jacket with a Challenger cooling vest insert, which connects with the same zippers used to secure the waterproof membrane. Although it has the clean lines of a seemingly simple design, the Excalibur is a capable performer. PROTECTION FEATURES: Outer Shell: High density polyester 600D, polyester rib, PWRwax 500D Insulation: Detachable thermal liner Waterproofing: Detachable hydratex G-liner (5000mm H2O) Breathability: Detachable hydratex G-liner (5000g/m2/24hrs) Composition: Outer Shell: 98 polyester, 2 polyamide Lining: 80 polyester, 20 polyamide Thermal Liner: 88 polyester, 12 polyamide (insulation 100 polyester) Membrane: 100 polyamide (100 polyurethane coating) Lining Membrane: 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 Visibility: Laminated reflection at chest and back, reflective logo at back ERGONOMIC FEATURES: Fit: Tour fit, regular Adjustability: Flexisnap, adjustment straps at upper arms and waist, adjustment tabs at under arms and cuffs Ventilation: VCS I zippers at chest and under arms, air outlet at back Features: Prepared for Challenger Cooling vest insert, stretch lips at elbows, short connection zipper, separate wearable hydratex G-liner Pockets: Slit pockets, inner pockets

Ordered an XL per the size chart and had to return for a 2XL. I have never worn a 2XL in anything. XL would have been OK without the thermal liner, with all liners it was too tight..
3 season commuter jacket. Wear it daily except for dead of winter and full summer heat. The material and cut give it a lightweight feel. It really needs an I-pod pocket or map pocket. No other complaints..

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 a soft yet rigid frame, 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. While the Wolfman Blackhawk Tank Bag has a universal fit, it works especially well on the Yamaha Super Tenere. 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 Silver lined interior Reinforced stitching throughout All seams are bound Legendary Wolfman design, function, construction and quality

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.

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!

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.
