Like a lot of folks, I was looking for more protection from the wind on my Suzuki GSX1250FA. This windscreen provides most of what I was looking for, and is definitely doing the job it was designed for. I purchased the tallest version for my bike, and it absolutely performs at keeping the wind off my body. My problem is that when I'm in certain positions, the air flows into my helmet. That's not the windscreen's fault, that's my fault for not having a better helmet. Buffeting from the wind is minimal now, making longer freeway rides a lot more comfortable. Plus, the smoke-gray color adds a bit of aggressiveness to the bike.
Here's the reason I took the time to write a review, though: The install manual was without a doubt the most thorough, easy to understand, and accurate manual I have ever read for any product. The manual was specific for my model (which I would expect, given that the windscreen was), but it was above and beyond. By using lots of clear and detailed photos, calling out different size/ different thread screws, and even suggesting the best ways to work certain parts off the bike, the manual writers clearly showed they know their bikes. Suzuki did not design the windscreen to be quickly replaced, but Zero Gravity made it easy.

First let me say that I have been looking on and off for a while for a mesh-type jacket that I could feel safe in, but that wouldn't break the bank. This jacket by Rev'it fits the bill perfectly, and the styling is fantastic to boot.
Sizing:
I'd say the sizes are a bit small for folks who run more towards the "American" size of things. I'm 6'0" and a not-too-fit 180 pounds. I wear a size 42 suit jacket, and Euro-cut suits feel restrictive to me. With a lot of "American" clothing, I can sometimes get away with a medium, and a large always fits. However, I ended up with the extra-large Airwave, which fits wonderfully. The length in the sleeves is perfect, and it isn't too loose in the chest. Shoulder pads and elbows fit right in place without adjustment.
Function:
It is hotter than heck around here this summer, and this jacket definitely helps. It lets the air flow right on in, and until the mercury hits 90 or so, it's comfortable to wear. With the optional TP2 back protector, I have to say that I got a little warm when stuck at stop lights at temps over 90. That's with the sun beating right on my back.
Style
I opted for the silver/yellow, and I really like how the "see-me-yellow" is styled into the jacket. You can't miss it, and yet it flows well into the design, adding flair and safety. In terms of styling, the armor is unobtrusive. You know it's there, but you aren't announcing it to the world.
