I have ridden with this jacket on days where the temps are hovering right around 100 degrees and this jacket does it's job.
I found the neck to be a bit tight but that could just be me, I am a big guy. I am sure there are better fitting jackets but for the price this thing can't be beat.

I purchased this jacket to wear in the summer weather. I ordered the jacket and it was delivered the next day. I was however disappointed that the jacket did not fit me well. I have tried on a large and knew that was too small so I ordered and extra large which I knew would fit not to mention I already have a 3 season Rev'it jacket that I use and it fits fine. This particular jacket was very tight in the forearms (I am not a muscle head and don't have abnormally large arms) I am 5'10" medium build, weight approx 200lbs. The jacket fit nice everywhere else and feels like typical Rev'it quality. I would recomend this jacket to someone with smaller arms.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I go through a set of tires every season, I usually mount something a bit more track oriented but this time I wanted something that was a bit more street oriented. I chose this tire because it should provide better wet grip and it should provide a bit more milage. I had the BT-003's for my last tire which was a great tire but I wore it out in less than three thousand miles, I tend to be an aggressive rider so I don't want to sacrifice grip for something that will provide high milage, having any mileage increase is going to make me happy and the BT-016's have been great thus far. I highly recomend this tire for both street and track use.
Yes, I recommend this product.

it's a dark tint visor, not as dark as I had expected but typical for Shoei, it's dark enough for me.
Pros It blocks out bright light, Easy to install
Cons A bit pricey for a tinted visor
Yes, I recommend this product.

I found that the helmet whistles at speed it's bearable. I also found the fit to be a bit snug, true to size but snug but after wearing it on a couple of commutes it seems to have loosened up a bit. I found the ventilation to be phenominal and the self adjusting visor is probably one of it's best features. I would highly recomend this helmet.
Pros Great Ventilation, Self Adjusting Visor is Phenominal Feature, Fashionable, Great Value, Comfortable
Cons the helmet whistles at speed but its bearable
Yes, I recommend this product.

I wear a medium in my Shoei X11 and The Hornet DS Sonora fits the same. I tried this helmet on at my local dealership and I felt the cheak pads were a bit snug but I figured they would break in. I ordered my helmet from Revzilla and to my surprise the cheak pads were fine aka not as snug as the ones in the dealership.
Pros Rugged, Fashionable, Great Value, Comfortable
Yes, I recommend this product.
