REV'IT! Airwave Pants The perfect match for the REV'IT! Airwave jacket, these trousers are also great over-pants to wear on top of your jeans during summer commutes. The large air mesh panels allow for maximum cooling, but that's not all they're on and off in seconds, thanks to the long side zippers, which go all the way up to the hip. Reflective panels at the lower legs ensure great visibility at all times. Even more, the Knox Flexiform CE-approved armor is located in height adjustable pockets, allowing you to position the armour just the way you like it. Available in classic black or fresh silver. PROTECTION FEATURES Outer shell polyester 600D , PWRshell 500D stretch , PWRshell mesh , polyester rib Visibility laminated reflection at calf Protection fully perforated EVA foam at hips , Knox Flexiform CE protection at knees ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit tour fit , regular Adjustability adjustment straps at waist , adjustment tab at ankles Ventilation ventilation panels at legs Features easy entrance zipper at calf , adjustable protector pockets , short connection zipper , elastic at waistband Pockets slit pockets

I have the Revit Tarmac Air mesh jacket and these pants go very well with them. I'm a size 32-33 in waist with a 30-inch inseam. The size medium in these pants fit me well with a little bit of room to spare. The build quality and features are TOP-of-the-Line, as to be expected from Revit. Long zippers on the inside of both legs make getting into & out of these pants easy with boots on. Waist is adjustable, as are pant bottoms. Flex panel in the back above the butt. Nice hip and knee armor. Reflective sections. And the mesh sections let in good airflow when you're on the road - sometimes wish the mesh sections were larger (more on outside leg area) but that would mean sacrificing protective areas - will need that good quality nylon material on the outside of the legs in case of a slide!
These pants are also quite fitted and not baggy at all. These can be worn as over-pants but don't seem to be designed as such. They're stylish enough to be worn on their own, although I mostly use them for longer weekend riding as opposed to city commutes.
Overall I'm very happy with these pants.

I bought a size Large in these bags. They are decent quality bags, look very nice & "appropriate" on my Triumph Bonneville. Build quality looks to be good and I expect to put them to good, long use.
Some issues - they're not as roomy as they look (at least to me). The top, domed portion of the bags have two mesh sections, one of which has the rain cover (a necessary feature as these bags do leak a bit through the zippers, found out when caught in a long downpour). Anyway, due to these mesh pockets, you have only the portion below the zippers for actual storage. I mean, you can put some small stuff in the top pockets but you cannot really adjust for volume above the zippers - unlike some bags with flaps, which I found were easier to adjust for extra volume (of course, in the process being more open to the elements).
Another area I wasn't too happy with is the section/flap that connects the two bags together (what do you call those?). These are two separate flaps connected & adjustable by laces. The lace-adjusting is a bit of a process, they loosen up so have to pull tightly & tie double knots, and finally will not look good if you throw them over your seat - I've run them under my seat so they look fine. Perhaps Tourmaster needs to consider velcro fastening?
Finally, the bags are connected to these sections by big beefy zippers, but I wonder how much load these zippers can bear - guess the bags aren't designed to carry too heavy of a load.
All in all though, these are nice, stylish bags (received a fair amount of compliments from other riders) that can carry a decent amount of load. I think as long as I don't abuse them by overloading them or over-stuffing them, they should do their job just fine.

Size - As some reviewers have mentioned, these do run a bit on the larger/wider side - NOT baggy, but not skinny-legged too. I'm usually between a 32 and 33 in waist, bought these in size 32 and they had room to spare all over - threw them in hot wash & hot dry and they came out much slimmer & now fit me like most of my regular straight-leg jeans. Inseam is also fine now for my 30" legs - a little long but OK with my riding shoes. Also note these have a bit of stretch so that helps.
Protection - Like others have mentioned, don't expect the same level of protection as other kevlar-lined jeans in the market. The only protective lining these have are in the knee area, along with the knee pads. Speaking of knee pads, these are pretty big, thick rubber pads that cover the entire knee area pretty well. However, having shrunk my pants by hot wash-dry I feel I may have pulled the armor pocket area higher than intended by the manufacturer because when I ride most of the armor sits higher up with only the lower end of the armor actually on my knee, have to tug them down a bit to get more armor coverage on the knee (something to consider if you're thinking of shrinking these down like I did).
Features - I bought these primarily to have a somewhat-protective, halfway-trendy pair of jeans for everyday hot-weather riding. My other kevlar-lined & armored denim is way too thick and warm to be comfortable in hot & humid summer months. I also have armored mesh pants, but they don't cut it for everyday city commute riding, so those are relegated for weekend long rides. The ability to access the knee-pads from the outside are a HUGE plus in my book - ride with pads on, reach destination and pull them out in a minute as part of my "getting off the bike" routine. No need to get to a bathroom or changing room to take out knee pads from the inside of the pants.
Style & Quality - These pants are fairly stylish. The knee pads do look a bit conspicuous when I'm walking around with them on, but ease of access means I pull them out as soon as I'm off the bike. The overall quality of the jeans do leave a bit to be desired. Stitching in many places are uneven, puckered in places. I understand that the zipper for accessing the knee pads need to be slim to make them inconspicuous but they do feel a bit flimsy. Also, with the bigger size of the knee-pads I wish they had made the zippers longer - right now I have to wiggle the pads a bit to put them in or take them out. The leather coin pocket is fine by me, as are the back pockets - they did sit a bit low when I first got them but after the hot wash & dry, they're sitting fine. The denim material is on the thinner side - makes it OK for summers but definitely don't feel like they'll be super hard wearing pants.
Overall - I knew I was getting a compromise with these pants - everyday-type jeans with some protection, so I wasn't surprised with what I received. I'm happy with them as they fill a niche and serve the purpose for which I bought them. I will be wearing my other fully-kevlar-lined & armored jeans more once the weather cools off. Until then, these jeans are seeing a fair amount of use.

The Western/Trucker denim jacket is almost as common as leather jackets amongst certain segments of motorcyclists - you're usually talking about your everyday Levi's, Lee & Wrangler. But here Roland Sands has taken this staple and added some clever twists to it to make it a great light-weight motorcycle jacket that is very much at home both on and off the bike. The denim feels to be of decent quality, nicely cut, well-stitched, and has subtle motorcycle-specific features - zippered side pockets, bi-swing back that works well, and pockets for soft armor in elbows, shoulder & back that take RSD's soft armor (does not come with the jacket, need to buy separately). Even with armor in place the jacket does not look too bulky to be automatically seen as an all-out motorcycle jacket. Obviously, you cannot expect it to offer the same protective capabilities as a racing motorcycle leather suit with hard armor, but it sure beats the alternative of riding in your typical non-armored street denim jacket! RSD sizing seems to run a wee bit on the smaller side. I'm around 5'10" tall, weigh around 175 lbs with chest size somewhere in between 40 and 42 - I usually wear a size Medium but was advised to get a Large, which I did and it fits me very well. Overall a very stylish motorcycle jacket at a decent price that ticks all the right boxes in my book. And to top it off it's made in USA! I'm wearing this as one of my hot-weather motorcycle jackets and am loving it very much. A DEFINITE buy in my book!
