Another great product delivered by Alpinestars. I start using this cooling vest under my armour when riding the dirt bike in summer days. I is so fantastic that I also start using the vest when touring or even commuting to my work in downtown.
It really helps to cool you down in extreme warm weather.
I fits tight but it is how it should fit to work.
Thanks Alpinestar + Rezvilla. You both do a fantastic job!

At $360 is a no brainer.
My head size is 22 1/4 inches so I was in between sizes (small and medium in the size table). Called Revzilla and recommended go for the Medium as the Small was going to be to tight in this kind of helmet (full face).
I am happy I followed Revzilla advice as the RF 1100 fits well and is very comfortable.
SHOEI + REVZILLA ROCKS!!!
Thanks to both of them.

Very protective boot (ideal for adventure ridding). Feels comfortable from the beginning. True to size. Bought US size 13 (the same size I use for sneakers) and feels perfect.
The sole has good grip in dirt and mud.

Excelente Glove. True American size. Most of my gloves are XXL REVIT, but after watching Revzilla Video I ordered the KLIM Dakar gloves in XL size and fit great.
Thanks Revzilla because the XXL would be too big...

My head size is in the middle between Small and Medium SHOEI Helmets.
I bought the helmet in size Medium because Small was extremely tight. In order to adjust the Helmet to perfection I bought these 39mmm extra cheek pads (the helmet in medium is set from factory with 35mm cheek pads)

I am not a big fun of carrying backpacks but I needed one to take to the gym. The Kriega R20 is perfect to carry the sneakers and my other stuff. Easy to load.
Feels very comfortable and the chest buckle help to adjust and secure the bag.

AltRider Triumph Tiger 800XC Side Foot Stand Kicking down your side stand shouldnt make you worry about a falling or sinking bike. The AltRider Side Stand Foot for the Triumph Tiger 800 offers peace of mind by creating a larger footprint to support the weight of your bike on soft ground. Made from hefty 1/8 inch (3.175 mm) thick stainless steel, the bottom plate will not bend, loosen, or begin rattling over time.It features a 3D tread that provides traction for your boots and is the most ergonomic design on the market, allowing easy deployment of the side stand while still on the bike. The AltRider foot attaches using the flanged top plate that holds the curved foot, and Torx fasteners clamp it down for a tight fit. This is the only side stand foot on the market with a top plate that encloses the foot from every angle -- theres no chance of losing this one. Notes Compatible with OEM centerstand Not Compatible with Hepco Becker centerstand Compatible with Tiger XC model

Necessary accessory because Tiger 800XC is quite heavy and easily falls on soft ground.
Unfortunately the screws were too long and needed to be cut in order to fit right. This shouldn't happen and for this reason I do not recommend the product.

No, I do not recommend this product.

Comfortable and at a reasonable price for a Gore-Tex leather boot. Prior to these boots I bought 3 other pair of Alpinestars boots (my favourite brand for boots).
Feel protected in the toe, heel and ankle areas, and took no time to break in.
My tennis shoes size is 13 and in my previous purchases they all fit perfect. This time were slightly large. The Web Gore-Tex indicates in the inside 48 / 12.5 US but because of Revzilla´s boot sizing note said the conversion was slightly off (larger), I though they were going to be ok. They are fine but still a bit large (nothing to bother while riding or walking).
I rate them 4/5 because Alpinestar size table is not that accurate, which is strange because did not happen in my previous Alpinestars boot purchases.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Very comfortable jersey for warm weather riding.
My chest size is 43" (Large in Klim size chart) but as was going to wear over my Alpinestars BNS Bionic Jacket, I ordered XL size and fits perfect!
Neck size is tight but it is ok.
