It works well and reads clearly, provided you can get it on the valve properly. It's designed in a way that it needs to be held near-perpendicular to the inside of the wheel. If you have spoked wheels as I do, the spokes will prevent you from aligning the tool properly and you can forget about using it. You'll just end up deflating the tire.
An odd design choice, but otherwise a good piece of equipment.

I was looking for something more versatile and protective than my (still excellent) Klim Overland, which I found to be more of a dual sport than a true adventure jacket. I ride 4 seasons, on and off road, in some pretty unforgiving places. It was between Rukka, Klim, and (left field choice) Aether. Rukka I find to be kinda ugly and not well suited to DC's climate, and Aether seemed a little too fashionable to inspire confidence. So Klim Badlands it was.
Of course there was the option of the older discounted Badlands pro - I'll get to why I chose the new model below.
Protection: This is the most protective textile jacket I have seen. The armacor on designated areas is very tough and there is a lot of it, and the standard goretex fabric elsewhere is the usual Klim quality. The D30 armor on this jacket is noticeably tougher and wider in surface area than the stuff in my Overland Jacket. You have quite a few ways of adjusting the armor to keep it in place. Most impressive is actually the super fabric on the arms, elbows and shoulders. This is my first experience with this material and it feels about as tough as leather (untested opinion of course). I was so impressed with it that this alone convinced me to shell out the extra cash for the newer model Badlands over the older Badlands Pro. The chest padding is a nice bonus - I haven't seen this in other textile jackets, surprisingly. I have no gripes in the protection category.
Comfort: I've only ridden in this jacket for a few days so it's not really fair to review it for comfort as it hasn't broken in yet. At this point I can say this is a bulky jacket and when you pick it up it's not light. But once it's on you it does not feel heavy at all. It still feels bulky but I anticipate this will improve as the jacket breaks in and loses some rigidity. Air flow is excellent. I do have some complaints though. I wear a medium in Klim gear, and my Overland fits me perfectly. But the Badlands sleeves are a couple of inches longer. I'm not sure whether that's for greater weather protection or unintentional, but it makes it awkward to wear off the bike (unless I pull up the sleeves and strap them tight) and slipping on gauntlet gloves becomes a pain. I have to pull the sleeves all the way up my forearm in order to wear and strap shut my gloves, then pull the sleeve back over the gauntlet. It's a minor complaint but it's annoying. Otherwise, I guess this jacket is as comfortable as a wearable fortress is going to get.
Functionality: In addition to protection this category is where this jacket really shines. The many pockets are well placed, including the hidden compartments. I can carry my wallet, keys, phone, GPS, maps, Drivers license, earplugs and leatherman multitool with room to spare. You also get a water bladder pocket that I've yet to test. Waterproofing goes without saying and needs no endorsement by me. And Klim have finally fixed the collar issue, allowing you to keep the collar open using functional buttons instead of iffy Velcro. It works, and as somehow who likes to ride with a down turned collar I appreciate it. My only gripe concerns the kidney belt. I actually like using this, for comfort and safety, but for some reason the ends keep sliding into the jacket lining and have to be threaded out again repeatedly. Of course, the belt itself is removable and, even if you keep it in but don't use it, you don't feel it's there anyway. But worth pointing out.
Style: Subjective of course. This isn't a subtle jacket, and no one is going to mistake it for fashion wear. Personally I like the rugged badassery of it. I actually use the jacket for its intended purpose and I like the image that goes with it. I also keep my gear on the bike so don't care how I look while off it. YMMV but I approve. And I actually like the grey model more than the all-black one. It looks more technical and brings out the jacket's form - and I'm less likely to boil in it in the D.C. summer.
Not all of us need a real adventure jacket. Those of you who do probably know who you are. I've not yet tried Rukka's gear and until I do I can't say Klim's is the best. But I've tried nearly everything else and this is the most impressive adventure jacket I've worn.

I bought these to wear on a long trip down most of the west coast and Pacific Crest.
I went through a couple of downpours and these did not hold up - a little rain was fine, but more than that and they got soaked. Not sure about the goretex claim here. Weird thing is, all my other goretex stuff is absolutely waterproof.
Worse than that, these are *not* winter gloves. Even in 40-50F, your fingers will get cold quickly without heated grips. Very disappointing. I'll need another pair next winter.
If these were cheap, I'd say 'fair enough'. At this price, not acceptable. My fault though. In my conversations with Revzilla staff about gloves, I'm the one who brought them up!

This is a comfortable, understated, good-looking boot you can wear on and off the bike. Oozes the usual Dainese quality. Gore-tex doesn't breath as well as I'd hoped but that's the nature of the material I guess, and I didn't buy these for that purpose.
Comfortable enough to work around a few blocks off the bike. I walk about six blocks daily in these and can't complain.
Compared to my Torque Air Outs, these are quite a bit less protective of course, but they're enough for city riding and, for the less risk-averse, touring.
Fits true to size for me, and I have a slightly wide food.
Love Dainese's boots.

I bought these as overpants (went one size up) and now use them alone as well as over jeans/pants. Comfortable both ways. They flow lots of air, though the effect is greatest when you stand up. I do wish they flowed as much when seated, but they're still good.
The pants feel well-made and robust as well. The material is tough. I don't know quite what to make of the armor; it feels a bit soft and insubstantial, but the science behind it claims it's tough.
I haven't tested them in rain yet, so can't comment on that, though others seem happy with them.
My only gripe - well, more of a wish - is that the legs don't open sufficiently to allow you to slip them on and off with boots on. But then these aren't designed as over pants, so fair enough.
They look great too.
A shout-out to Revzilla: As usual, they were extremely helpful in guiding me through the choices and sizing.

Comfortable, stylish (for motorcycle pants), solid build quality. My only complaint is that I ordered a 'short' version; the overall length was perfect, but the knee pads are positioned far too low, somewhere in the middle of the shins. Odd.
Otherwise, I'm very happy with these.

Bought this for my Honda CBR250. The magnets work well and the bag stays in place, I didn't feel a need to use the straps.
My main issue with it is that, no matter where you place the bag on the tank, the GPS screen is displayed too far back towards the rider. So if you ride a sports bike you can forget about glancing at the screen without straightening your back and forcing yourself to sit upright momentarily and move your head back. It's uncomfortable and distracting, as the point of a GPS holder is to be able to glance at it without diverting too much attention from the road. So I would not recommend this if you ride a sportsbike.
That said, it seems well put together, was easy to install, and in general is a polished product. It's small but you already know that. If you don't have a sportsbike, I think this does the job well.

I had no success getting any Held gloves to fit properly (not sure why) and I'd just about given up when I received these, especially after reading how they fit small. Luckily, my fit exactly right. The simplest thing to do is just measure your palm as indicated. Worked perfectly for me.
I can't really describe them as incredibly comfortable, but then they are brand new and are not supposed to be until broken in. They certainly feel well built though and do not dig into my knuckles or fingers like some street gloves do. The kangaroo palm really does help feel.
Oh, and they look awesome in black.
Quick and painless delivery from Revzilla as usual.

After some trial-and-error and help from the guys at Revzilla, I finally found a good fit - 8.5, which is slightly smaller than my palm measurement of 9. I guess the glove fits a bit large. They're not tight, just right. As others have commented, the thumbs are for some reason long, which makes operating the turn signals a bit awkward, but manageable.
The first thing you notice when putting these on is the sheer level of protection. These things are tough, complex and confidence-inspiring.
The second thing is the level of comfort. I tried on a whole bunch of gloves before settling on Helds, including A*'s, Revits, JRs, and a few more. All of them were annoying to wear and felt wrong, too rigid and with the armor in all the wrong places. Despite being even more protective, the Titans are super comfortable, and the feel through the palms is great. Lots of feedback from the throttle, brakes, clutch.
Others have said these are pricey. Guys, you're buying protection for your hands. If you have $350, then these are worth at least that much.
Plus they're awesome.

A size 52 was a perfect fit for me (5'7, 180 lbs).
This is a really comfortable, incredibly well-made jacket. It also looks a lot cooler than the picture shows. The perforation is noticeable - nothing fantastic, but pretty good and certainly better for the DC summer than non-perf leathers. I strongly recommend this jacket.
Oh, and Revzilla is awesome. Great service and advice on all my gear. My new one-stop shop for all my gear.
