REV'IT! Pacific H2O Rain Suit In developing the Pacific H20 rain suit, one of REV'IT!'s main goals was to make it easy to put on in just a few seconds about the time it takes you to get soaked during a heavy shower. Mission accomplished. The solution lies not only in the long, diagonal front closure, but especially in the newly developed, non-stick, PVC-free coating on the inside of the Power Nylon outer shell. The result is a 100 waterproof, breathable, and very practical all-weather companion that will meet the demands of any rider. Convenient features include a storage pocket on the upper leg. For safety, reflection panels on the shoulders and lower legs ensure great visibility. If you need to stand out in traffic even more, the Pacific H2O comes in a high-visibility neon yellow option. PROTECTION FEATURES Outer shell PVC-free PWROxford with PU coating, PVC-free PWROxford EN471 with PU coating (in Neon Yellow color only) Waterproofing 100 waterproof Composition 100 polyester (100 polyurethane coating) Visibility reflection at shoulders and legs, reflective logo at chest and back ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit tour fit, regular Adjustability adjustment tabs at upper arm, cuffs and ankles Features PVC-free XL front zipper Elastic at waistline Includes transport bag Stash pocket on left leg EN343 certified

I have had this suit for almost a year now, and I must say I'm pretty disappointed. I honestly hate to give a bad review, but this thing is just awful. I live in Florida and my bike is my only vehicle. If you don't know already, it rains at least once a week here so I need a suit that actually keeps me dry. This is not that suit. Right out of the box the suit seems great. Feels sturdy and waterproof. It packs up really small and is lightweight. I was excited for rain when I got it. Then I used it. I might as well have been wearing nothing. The water just instantly seeps in to the fabric and then wicks it into your whatever you're wearing. It would probably work great during like a sun shower but in actual rain it's worthless. I have been soaked every single time I've worn the thing. ( at least 35 times since buying.) I don't know why I keep expecting it to keep me dry. i'm going to try and seal it with a waterproofing spray, but the fact that I have to do that defeats the purpose of buying a rain suit. this thing is not ok and the price should be dropped or Rev should stop carrying it. Or maybe it's a great suit and mine just sucked? Who knows?

Was really surprised at the quality of this jacket. I was skeptical because of the price, but went for it anyway. Man am I pleased!
As a concealed carrier the fact that this jacket has a built in holster is amazing. It will holster most mid to full size pistols. It isn't a quick draw holster or anything but with some practice it will do the job.
As for the rest of the jacket. The armor isn't obstructive and hardly noticeable. It pretty much molds to your body like it should.
The hoody that comes with the jacket is nice quality as well, but I live in florida and can't really sport it. I tried for two days for the "cool" factor and then I couldn't take it anymore. It's rainy season and WAY TOO HOT. I can't wait for winter to fully rock it out. I do wish that the hood itself independently zipped into the jacket, like the Dogs Of War jacket.
The naked jacket itself is water resistant so you don't get much airflow even from the vents. (Some arm vents would be great) which is expected from most water resistant things, but I'm used to the heat here and would rather be a little warm then all scratched up on the hot pavement. Anyway can't say enough about how much I love this jacket, and I most certainly love that price tag.

These gloves run small indeed. I had to go two sizes up. I'm normally a large and had to go with an XXL. First pair was an XL and way too tight. Sent back for XXL and now they fit....like a glove.:)
Another reason I sent the first pair back was because one of the PU knuckle guards was poorly attached to the glove. Most likely a rare manufacturing error, not a design flaw or anything. So keep an eye out for that.
I just received the XXL's today and went for a ride. The only issue I have is that Revzilla accidentally sent me the wrong color.. I would return them again, but all that hassle isn't worth the long wait. I ordered red to match my jacket and got blue instead. I hate blue but I'm gonna have to live with it. Anyway, besides that they breath exceptionally well in Florida weather. The touchscreen contact patches are amazing and surprisingly accurate. Palm pads are comfortable and not stiff. Flexibility is outstanding! They also seem pretty durable for an $80 glove too, but on that subject i'll have to wait and see. All in all I think this is going to become a favorite of mine. 10/10 do recommend, for dualsporting.

I just received this yesterday. Called out of work immediately woke up this morning and rode 180+ miles to Gainesville. Im at a Starbucks right now on my iphone so please excuse any typos.
Ok here we go:
The aerodynamics on this helmet are exceptional for having a hood. There is very slight side to side pull at 50+, compared to my Gmax that feels like It's going to break my neck every time I lane check. The pull while looking up at 50+ is extreme, but then again there is no normal reason I would ever look up as far as I did while going 50+. (Was for test purposes only)
There is a slight lens distortion, but nothing extreme and its not right in your line of sight.
The ventilation was nothing special. I'm in Florida and its hot no matter what helmet you have on.
Size and ear space: My head is a 22 and I ordered a medium. It is a tight fit, but only in the cheek pads and after 30 miles I didn't even notice. No hot spots.
There is no room for any type of earbuds. I always see this as an issue in reviews but if you ask me, unless you are offload you shouldn't be wearing earbuds. If you can't hear you environment you might as well not have any safety gear on. IMO
The quality of the shell seems great. The vents are in no way cheap feeling.
The rubbers are a little strange, my helmets front chin vent gasket is slightly crooked (no big deal)
The graphics: At first I was hesitant to by such a squid looking helmet covered in graphics. I am now in love with it and don't care if I look like seafood.
Still though a solid hi-viz option would be nice.
Anyway I highly recommend this helmet. Not disappointed in any way. Oh and I love having the ratchet style strap. So much easier to get off. IMO for the price, this is the best option available. Like I said though we need more solid color options
Yes, I recommend this product.
