I am 5'11" 150lbs and I bought a size M. I bought it because of the waist size and for extra room putting it on under an overpass. I think I could have gotten away with a small, because it is a bit baggy, but it works great. I put it on right before a downpour and it kept me very dry. I didn't have take off my boots and it went on easy over my jacket. I used the hood too, which made my helmet a little tight but kept me very dry. I love the design on the suit and it has incredible reflectivity, which makes me feel very safe in the rain. It also packs very well in the case, I just with the case had compression straps because it does continue to pack down quite a bit.

I wear these gloves both on and off road and they work great. I followed the size chart and bought a size M instead of the L I usually wear. At first they felt too small, I really had to work to put them on, but I read they will stretch. After several rides they stretched out to the shape my hand and are not very comfortable. They still take a little effort to put on but I find I can put my hand in my pocket and use my cell phone with the connect finger tip very easily. I don't take my gloves off to get gas, get my wallet and get my keys any more. My only concern is that they are not plated like a race glove so I am not as protected at high speeds on the highway, but for me they are perfect.

I have a long oval head shape and this helmet fits very comfortably. This is by far the most comfortable helmet I have worn. I have also worn several other dual sport helmets on the highway, and the visor is noticeably more aerodynamic on the Arai and does not get grabbed by the wind as much. The helmet is very high quality and is probably the investment I am most happy with. My only complaint is the indents in the cheek pads for your ears are a little too far back to properly line up speakers to my ears. I may have to modify them a little.

This headset works very well. It syncs flawlessly to my iPhone 4s and I use it for phone calls, music, and iPhone voice commands. The stick in microphone is well worth the extra few bucks, it works great and nothing is in the way (aka boom mic). I am amazed by how well the microphone works compared to my car with all the wind in my helmet. I have the system installed in my Arai xd4 helmet and with the addition of the included speaker spacers it works great. I have not use the intercom function, but I hope that future software upgrades allow them to communicate with other brand Bluetooth communication systems.

I have alpinestar boots and these feel great. I have a size 8 boot and I bought the SM-MD and they are perfect. I have worn them 5 times so far and they do not show any signs of wear. I have only worn them in warm summer weather and I have no complaints, they worked well.

This bag is easy to install and works great. This bag is made out of very high quality materials and is a very convenient way to store a lot of my stuff. I wish the bag was waterproof, it seems thick enough, but I bought the rain cover so I should be fine.I use the map bag for my cell phone and the rest for my raingear on long trips or whatever else I need (drinks, etc) around town. I like the quick release system, it makes this bag much more practical.

I really like this bag, it is clearly made out of a very high quality material. It sits very securely on the bike and holds everything in place. My only complaint is that it is not quick to get in and out of the bag. I wish the system that held it down was separate from the system that compresses the bag.

My shoe size ranges from 8-9.5. My dress shoes are usually an 8-8.5 . I originally bought the size 9 but they were VERY big. I sent them back and exchanged them for an 8 and I am really glad I did. I was originally afraid of thick socks would make them fit slightly small and I would not like them, but I have plenty of room in the 8. They broke in quickly and I think they are comfortable for walking around. I have small to medium size calves and I have the straps as short as possible. The boot is definitely made for people with large calves, but it still works for me. I have not tested their waterproofness yet, but they seem like they would work great. They are not too hot in the summer either, I am very happy with them.

REV'IT! Tornado Pants The REV'IT! TORNADO trousers combine maximum cooling, through air mesh panels, with abrasion-resistant fabric and CE-approved armor at the knees, to give you ultimate temperature flexibility in adventure touring trousers. Like the REV'IT! TORNADO jacket, the trousers are equipped with the all-new 2-in-1 liners that combine a 100 waterproof membrane with a thermal insulated liner, which are easily zipped out and stowed away for hot weather days. These trousers are so practical and easy to get on and off (with or without liners), thanks to the full length zippers, that you're going to wonder how you ever lived without them. REVIT PROTECTION FEATURES Outer shell polyester rib, PWRshell mesh, polyester 600D, PWRwax 500D, PWRshell 500D stretch, polyester dull 600D, Lorica reg Insulation detachable 2-in-1 thermal liner and membrane Waterproofing detachable hydratex G-liner (5000mm H2O) Breathability detachable hydratex G-liner (5000g/m2/24hrs) Composition outer shell 86 polyamide, 14 polyester lining 100 polyester membrane 100 polyamide (100 polyurethane coating, insulation 100 polyester) Protection Knox Flexiform CE protection at knees Visibility laminated reflection at upper legs and calves ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit tour fit, regular Adjustability adjustment straps at waist, adjustment tab at ankles Ventilation ventilation panels at legs Features short connection zipper, elastic at waistband, adjustable protector pockets, easy entrance zipper Pockets slit pockets NOTE The Tornado Pants run 1 size larger compared to other REV'IT! Pants and to what the size charts indicate. If you measure up to be a size 52, you should go with a 50 instead.

I bought these pants to wear as a 3 season pant and they work great. They are very comfortable, and breath really well in the summer time. I was thinking of buying Dainese pants, but I went with these pants because the zipper on the leg goes all they way up the leg. My only complaint is I wish the pockets were lower to be more functional. I am 5'11" 32 inch waste and a 48 fits very well; a little loose without the liner, but that is to be expected.
