Klim Tactical Short Say goodbye to the days of chafing and other riding maladies associated with loose-fitting riding shorts. The Klim Tactical Short is designed to keep your equipment stowed properly and to wick moisture away from your skin to ensure maximum possible comfort on your ride. The saddle area is constructed with a high-tech triple-density chamois that will help absorb riding vibrations and cushion your ride. PORON XRD Extreme Impact Protection material is embedded in strategic locations to help absorb impacts. On impact, the PORON XRD high-performance molecules create a unique protective shield that can repeatedly absorb up to 90 of the most intense force. PORON XRD EXTREME IMPACT PROTECTION MATERIAL ON SIDES AND THIGHS AND OVER TAILBONE PADDED COMPRESSION SHORT MOISTURE-WICKING POLYESTER MATERIAL 4-WAY-STRETCH SPANDEX SOFT ELASTIC WAIST SUEDE TEXTURE CHAMOIS CROTCH MICRO-INJECTED LOGO TAG-LESS ARTICULATED DESIGN MATERIALS SPANDEX POLYESTER PORON XRD EXTREME IMPACT PROTECTION MATERIAL

Another good product from Klim (very comfortable).
I am a 38 (jeans and chino pants) so I was between LG or XL because I read some reviews saying they were kind of tight. Call Revzilla and they told to buy the same size of my underpants (LG). I am happy I followed Revzilla advise because they fit perfect.
I use the Tactical shorts under Traverse Klim pants size 36
Thanks Klim & Revzilla!

Icon Tarmac 2 Boots The Icon Tarmac 2 CE Boots are the fusion of athletic shoe design and necessary motorcycle riding features. An emphasis on street sportbike-specific geometry, increased comfort, and ease of use sets the Tarmac 2 Boots apart from all motorcycle boots that have come before. A reinforced upper, steel shank, molded ankle plate, reinforced toe and heel box equip the Tarmac 2 Boots for duty. The sculpted bottom unit was specifically designed to work with sportbike rearsets and allow positioning of your foot for all-day riding comfort and performance. Add a pre-tensioned stealth lace system and overmolded breathable mesh and you are left with a shoe to take on both all-comers, and all-corners. Features Suede leather and overmolded mesh upper Sportbike-Influenced bottom unit geometry Axialmetric steel shank Internal ankle plate Molded ankle plate Pre-tensioned stealth elastic lacing system CE certified

Bought the Tarmac shoes to replace a pair of 4 year old Sidi Slash boots. I liked the Tarmac much better that the old Sidi´s. Are very comfortable and feel protective.
The rubber sole has a good grip. Shoes are very cool, and not flashy. Ideal for rinding city motorbikes.
I ordered the same size of my sneakers (13) and fit perfect. Big guys with wide foots may feel kind of tight, but in my case (long and thin feet) are perfect.
I have a couple of Alpinestars Tall boots size 13, so looks like Icon and Alpinestars have the same sizing chart/fitting.

Feel comfortable and are better than regular cotton socks.
Good match for tall boots!
My boots size is 13, so I bought the socks in size LG-XL and fits perfect.
As always Alpinestars delivers good products.

Sizing is perfect. I am a 37 so I could have ordered a 36 or a 38. I went for the bigger size because I like to use protective underpants (like the Klim tactical shorts). They are a little big but it is not a problem because of the velcro adjustment in the waist.
Mesh panels provide tons of air. Of course this material will not survive a crash as good as cordura panels, but you can´t have everything.
Plenty of room for the knee braces.
In summary a great pant for enduro summer riding. A big plus for the dunes!
Thanks to Klim & Revzilla

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...
