The quality of these jeans are great, they have a really nice look and don't have seams at the knee like the Kansas do. I don't wear low rise waist so here is where I have the issue. I guess it's my own fault and shouldn't of bought this product, but I wanted a slim fit. Especially on the bike they ride too low and and I don't have enough room in my crotch.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Dainese Manis T Back Protector This innovative back protector features a highly advanced design and is specifically intended for use on the track. The design differs from the traditional concept and sets new standards of comfort. Its innovative manufacturing solution provides much more freedom of movement than its predecessors and allows the protector to faithfully replicate all the forms that the spine takes during a race. The protector can increase or decrease in length to adapt to the rider's body in different positions. It can also curve and flex sideways, again, to follow the shape of the body. The composite sandwich is the result of 30 years experience in designing back protectors. The sandwich consists of articulated external plates made from polypropylene mated to Crash absorb material. An outer layer of material provides the comfort factor and ensures that the protector matches the shape of the spine. The protector features large perforations and minimal contact points with the body to minimise any discomfort from heat while its light weight enhances the revolutionary design of the system. Thanks to a thin adjustable lumbar strap, the protector can be worn under leathers without pressing against the abdomen. Protection Back protector certified to CE - Cat. II - EN 1621.2/2003 ( Level 2 ) Articulated external plates with controlled mobility, made of polypropylene with perforated and corrugated structure Inner core in perforated Crash absorb Localized comfort padding Ergonomics and Comfort Adjustable lumbar strip Back protector with 4 degrees of freedom Longitudinal stretch Longitudinal bending Torsion Lateral bending controlled by special tensioners External perforated plates Crash absorb perforated absorption material Reduced contact area Adjustable lumbar strip Sizing Sizing is dependent on both torso length and waist circumference. Height is measured from your shoulders to your natural waist, which will determine which Type is necessary. Waist circumference is measured at the hourglass of your torso, (circumference measured at your belly button). Shoulder to waist length determines Type Type 55 15.75-17.75 (40cm - 45cm) Type 59 16.9-18.9 (43cm-48cm) Waist circumference determines Size Size SM 31-33.5 (79-85cm) Size MD 33.5-35.8 (85-91cm) Size LG 35.8-38.2 (91-97cm) Size XL 38.2-40.5(97-103cm) Note Depending on size, Back Protector will have more or fewer segments than image shown.

I really love this back protector for the track. The T model comes without the chest straps, and works well with less bulk and fuss. The waist holds it in place as you get the suit on, then the suit holds it in place very well and you forget it is there when you are riding. It really moves with your body, it stretches, rotates and twists very effectively. It does flow some air with the holes, and the material keeps your back comfortable as possible. Also this is CE 2 and multiple use. Add to all that that it's just really cool how it works. What's not to like? Maybe the price, but you get what you pay for. I've used the less expensive Tryonic See+, and this is definitely worth the premium for me. Highly recommended!
Yes, I recommend this product.

As soon I opened the box it was love at first sight. But I was hesitant. Do they fit? Yes, ooh yes, yes they do! These are the best fitting shoes I've ever put on, comfortable right out of the box, even compared to my everyday non-riding shoes. That Second Skin Concept really works! They are a little narrower than average with a nice roomy toe, but still very secure. These have to be the most stylishly dope riding shoes ever made. Protection is basic, but they are made for around town use, and therefore they excel at their intended use! It's just the right compromise for everyday wear; really nothing about these appears to be a compromise. The fit and finish is top notch.
What brought me to these was I was looking for riding shoes that I could wear all the time. I tried on the TCX X-Square but am not a fan of the fit, kind of wide and crude (they are good for the price though). I looked at these and also the Charlie from Dainese. I probably would have gotten the Charlie because they have more airflow, but couldn't find them in stock anywhere anyways. I finally found the Bravos in stock in my size and immediately bought them. I'm super thrilled with these, exceeded my expectations!
Yes, I recommend this product.

I got these boots as a more casual option to my Rival boots. I love them! Just like the Rivals, this sole is so comfortable. I think these are great for around town, on and off the bike. They flow air and breathe well, making them really comfortable in hot weather. Personally, I can walk around in them all day and don't bother to change shoes at work. Even in the Louisiana winter, they are warm enough for a long ride.
The feel of the footpegs, brake and shifter is excellent. As is the protection, which comes above the ankle. Really nice height to be comfortable but still feel secure and safe.
I already knew about people's frustration with the Velcro/lacing when I bought them, so I was prepared for this. The Velcro does want to close as you lace them, but I just attach it to the side as I'm lacing and it's fine. Overall, it really is a pretty clean and easy to use system to keep the laces secure and out of the way. I like it better than other boots I've seen where laces are visible, etc.
I would never wear any other gear but Rev'it, and these don't disappoint at all. Very happy with them.

First, I'm 5'11", 150 lbs and I fit in a Small. Some people said I'd be a medium, but they are wrong. I had concerns when buying this expensive jacket and pants but after I started using it, my concerns went away. It fits well, a little tight with all liners in but quite comfortable with only the windproof/waterproof or none in. I rarely use the thermal liner anyways, too puffy, I prefer to use my own insulating layers. I initially disliked the zippers at the wrists, but they are convenient. Rev'it has added little locking things on them so they don't ride up. The jacket vents great too. All the zippers actually let air through when riding, even when they are not open. So in contrast to the Cayenne Pro, which I also have, the sand vents better and is not as warm. The fabric is also more comfortable and less stiff than the Cayenne Pro, though not as abrasion resistant. I got the silver pants with this, and I warn you people might call you a Stormtrooper or say "Ground control to Major Tom". The silver pants got dirty but the silver jacket stayed pretty clean, so I advise going for a combo with black pants. I'm sold on Rev'it its the best stuff. And since Revzilla are the Rev'it experts, this is where I will shop.
Pros Rugged, Fashionable, Comfortable
Yes, I recommend this product.

Excellent for the money

This was my first motorcycle jacket. Now I have a few others including a $450 Rev'It jacket and I still think this jacket is an excellent value for the money. Everything is going to feel a little cheap, like the crunchy fabric, zippers, liner, but come on, look at the price! Here is what it does have that I like: Comfortable armor that looks effective, beefiest stock back pad I've seen (the back pad that comes on better jackets like Rev'It is often a joke piece of thin foam, requiring a costly upgrade. Not this one), subdued looks (I have the Grey), cuff adjuster and zipper which stays put and isn't uncomfortable to the skin, excellent venting which includes, front, arm and rear vents. Front vents button to each-other and create air scoops, a very nice feature that jackets triple the Atomic's price could benefit from! Liner keeps you relatively warm and is easily removable, good range of adjustment in the waist and arms, storm flap underneath front zipper to keep rain and wind out, four loops to secure jacket to pants, water resistant front pockets and an inner pocket for sunglasses, fit is descent and comfortable in riding position. Once again, good value. If you're willing to spend more, look at Rev'It, because there is a world of difference in fit and quality, but you pay for it.
Pros Great Value, Comfortable, Rugged
Yes, I recommend this product.

I love the gloves, I love Rev-It

I love these gloves, they are a great value. They are perfectly designed. They look great, feel great, the cuff is the perfect length. They are good in the summer, obviously don't breathe as well as a mesh glove but just right in my opinion, I anticipate wearing them into the fall and in the spring. The protection is there, the rubber feels adequate and I would not have gone for the Comet after having these. Someone said the seams hurt their fingers- well, they do fit tight, which I like, and they did jam my fingers a little, but it went away after a week or two, no complaints! I would recommend ordering up one size if in doubt. Finally, Rev-It is absolutely the BEST. Their gear is oodles ahead in fit, style and quality than anything else I've tried. These gloves make my Joe Rocket gloves look like silly toys, and for less money.
Pros Great Value, Rugged, Fashionable, Comfortable
Yes, I recommend this product.
