First off, Revzilla's service and shipping speed are 5 stars, top quality and keep me coming back for more stuff my wife swears I don't need. I ordered on Thursday morning and it was on my steps Friday afternoon so I could ride on the 4th of July in style.
Now, the glasses...
What these glasses are great for:
- Off-the-bike style
- Cruising speeds in town
- Wearing in a full face helmet
- Getting a funny face tan
What these glasses are not so great for:
- Anything over ~50 mph (half helmet)
- Dusty roads
They definitely stay attached at any speed. I took this from my house (around 35 mph) to reckless (just shy of 130 mph). Up to about 50 mph, they do a great job of keeping wind and dust out of my eyes. Once I hit 50, the wind starts buffeting and gets into my eyes. They stick firmly to my head/nose (rubber nose grips), though.
Honestly, for the price, they aren't that bad. You get 3 different sets of lenses, but I only see myself using the dark and clear.

This is my second Dowco Guardian cover and I continue to be impressed by the value per dollar I am getting. I bought this specifically because it was less expensive but I still got a good, quality cover.
The cover is light but not flimsy, if that makes sense. The strap and elastic all feel like they're sturdy.
The Large fit my 2013 V Rod Muscle with windshield and saddlebags just right. Loose around the sides but I strap it down anyway.
I would not use this prior to your pipes cooling off. There's no lining and I assume it would damage the material.
We got some rain and the bike was dry, so that's a bonus.
Overall, I am happy with my purchase and would recommend it to anyone looking for a quality but inexpensive cover.

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.

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.
