REV'IT! Glacier Pants Complementary to the GLACIER shirt, these round knitted pants are purpose-built for colder days. The pants are made of a mixture of strong polyamide and stretch elastane, and treated with an anti-bacterial finish to maintain freshness. Soft and comfortable, the GLACIER pants feature extra insulating areas at the thighs, knees, shins, and crotch, which are essential for locking out the cold during winter rides. With these pants, all you need is a simple wind-blocking outer shell, without insulation properties, to keep you in the comfort zone. PROTECTION FEATURES Outer shell polyamide Composition 93 polyamide, 7 elastane ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit regular Features Seamless in 3D round knit technology Insulating function Antibacterial finish Odor control Insulation guards at knee, thigh and shin Airvent zone at hollow of the knee, autofit waist and hem

I'm pleased with my purchase. I'm not blown away like I've been by all my other Rev'It purchases but I'm definitely not regretting it.
The cost is a bit higher than I think the pants are worth. There aren't really any features that set it apart from, say, a North Face style expedition/compression base layer which can be found on sale for a bit less.
They've done their job and kept my legs from going numb as low as 25 (F) at both slower and highway speeds. I think the sweet spot for these is right around 40 (F) where you can't feel the cold at all. At 25 (F), I definitely felt the chill but nothing nearly as bad as it was before wearing a base layer.
I'd recommend these for anyone who just doesn't feel like going to a store nearby to find something cheaper.

I'm so glad I stumbled across this while trying to find the last few pieces to make a more comfortable winter ride. I was frustrated seeing only highly rated pieces for $40+, but this thing is exactly what I was looking for at fantastic price.
The piece itself is very straight-forward. The fabric is perforated with grommets at the nostrils so there shouldn't be any tearing issues. The fit is right on - I've got a rather large melon and this fits over it without much struggle. It's long enough for a giraffe, so no need to worry if you've got a slightly longer neck.
The warmer kept me warm this morning throughout my 30 minute 18-mile commute in Central VA (temp ~34 according to weather). It stayed put when I turned my head and I could freely look wherever I needed to without feeling any tugging.
I VERY highly recommend this product. I'm excited to take it deeper into the winter season to see how warm it will keep me.

I am quite happy with these gloves as a standalone winter glove. I would say they're nice and warm down to 35 (F), and I still wasn't numb down to about 28 (F) riding in Central VA (mix of rural/highway speeds).
The only feature I'm not 100% loving is the fingertips. By my own fault, I ordered these one size up to accommodate my PowerLet Glove Liners. The tips of the fingers have that sort of "witch" pointy thing going on, particularly the pointer with the touchscreen fabric.This is not a combination I would suggest, but it's not the fault of either piece individually - they simply don't pair well.
I would absolutely recommend these gloves individually, just make sure you check the sizing chart and order your size! If your ride is above 30, you'll be comfortable with just these gloves, no heated liner needed.

I'm pretty satisfied with my purchase. The infrared heat is pretty even, though it's much less effective the closer you get to your fingertips. As others have mentioned, the top of the hand heats up very well.
The battery connection was super easy and there's plenty of slack in the wiring both on the battery harness and the gloves/lanyard.
I had the temp setting at H2-H3 for daily commuting as low as 30 degrees (F). This was plenty warm but not "scalding".
I think the only reason I'm not thrilled with my purchase is that you have to be really lucky/smart with your waterproof gloves you use with this product.
I paired these with the REV'IT H2O Carver winter gloves that ran $89.99, so the total cost for this heated option was just under $200.00. I would not advise these winter gloves with the PowerLet, as almost all feeling is lost. This is not specific to the PowerLet, but thought this might be helpful.
I would recommend buying these first, then ordering a few waterproof options and testing the fit, returning/exchanging as necessary for the perfect fit.

Easy to use, works exactly as described. The straw-like extension is durable, just make sure you keep it taped to the side when not in use, it's probably difficult to lube the chain without it.

The disc lock feature fits my CBR 250 front disc perfectly. No issues lining it up at all.
The alarm leaves a bit to be desired. I tested my alarm by moving my bike and it went through the series of chirps (5), then the alarm just did one final beep and... nothing. I changed the battery, but this did not resolve the issue. The alarm just doesn't go off for whatever reason.
I still make use of the lock feature itself and will probably seek an alternative next season. I recommend this as it's affordable and I'm assuming my alarm issue isn't a widespread problem.

I love this jacket! I purchased this on closeout for half off and ordered a 44 based on the sizing chart. It fits perfectly, but the sleeves are a bit long, which I'm assuming is because there are no stretch panels behind the arm. When I reach for the handlebars, there's no slack in the sleeve. Aside from that, the fit is perfect with room to layer a bit if needed (I'm 6', 190lbs).
I wore it for the first time today in Northern VA. It was mid 30's but you would never have known with the jacket, even for the portion of my commute on the highway at 85mph. The jacket kept me warm during the more suburban portion at 40mph too.
If you are able to find this jacket in your size, get it! The hood works really well, the pockets are fantastic and overall, there's not a better option for the price.

I previously purchased just a Dark Smoke Faceshield (not pinlock) and, as a morning commuter, I had some issues with fogging. This product was recommended to me by the friendly sales rep I spoke with for my Shoei Qwest.
It works perfectly, arrived quickly and was insanely easy to install. For under $100 I'm able to guarantee no fogging which, considering the storms the East has been getting recently, I'm really glad I did.

I am non-military but liked the brighter colors (Neon Orange) and the fact that it was sort of a vest too.
Pros:
- Very comfortable and easy to put on/take off with your riding gloves on.
- High quality fabric, zipper and storage materials.
- The front pocket is awesome! I like just throwing small things (glasses, phone, keys, etc) in there and it's roomier in there than you'd expect.
- Evenly distributes weight. I can carry my normal stuff (see below) and not be reminded at all during the ride that I have 8-10 pounds on my back.
Cons:
- The velcro badge holders (I use it for my parking garage token) stick to the lower guts of my Shoei Qwest helmet during head checks/lane changes.
- The main compartment is SMALL. I can fit a pair of non-riding shoes (not boots), a sandwich and a bottle of water and I'm pretty much at capacity.
- The reflective striping on the front buckles were on the inside for my bag. Not a huge deal, but it was a head-scratcher.
- The area in the front that's intended to carry a jacket has me completely baffled... When I roll up my jacket and clip it on, it looks really silly. I don't know that it's really meant for anything but looks.
The video helped me a lot. I knew exactly what I was getting (a small commuter bag with some hi-viz color) and it arrived super fast at a great price. Will probably look to Kriega for a larger bag when I need more room but I'll continue to use this on lighter load rides.

I bought these as my first street bike shoes and wore them for my first time riding. They felt very natural and were extremely conducive to a new/learning rider as they didn't feel like a burden, they grip the foot pedals, shift lever and rear brake lever ridiculously well.
I didn't buy them for looks, but my Wife says they look good with jeans. I really appreciate the lace cover as that was my only real outstanding concern with using the standard workboot. The heel protection is great as well.
Overall, I would definitely recommend these to those folks looking for a nice shoe that will fit in a smaller bag (I use the Icon Squad 3 Mil-Spec) and tend to have a wider foot.
The video was a huge help as well... Pretty much guaranteed I will be a customer for a long time to come.
