REVIT Concorde Jacket The Rev'It Concorde Jacket is constructed with durable heavy memory cotton that has been coated to repel water. Memory cotton ages beautifully, the older it gets the better it will look. The cargo pockets, a removable and adjustable hood, two way zippers and metal snaps give this jacket its robust look. The Knox protection at the shoulders and elbows, reflective panels, detachable thermal liner and Hydratex waterproof membrane make it a very complete, fashionable and functional motorcycle jacket.

i may be a bit biased because almost all of my riding gear is Rev'It... but this jacket is by far the best I've ever owned.
i love the way it looks and the way it feels. since i got it for xmas i've worn it as my winter coat off the bike because i love it so much. it fits perfectly, is incredibly warm, and imho looks f*cking great.
yes, as someone else pointed out, there are some minor design choices that are a bit silly (the hood zipper being exposed, etc), but i think they are very minor.
considering every other similar riding jacket i've tried has either fit terribly, looked silly, or both... this is a win for sure.
(also, be advised that Rev'It's previously wacky sizing is now much more realistic... My previous Rev'It winter jacket was an XXL... and this one is an L which is much more in line with what I normally wear, being 6'1" / 170lbs)
Yes, I recommend this product.

used this with the long johns on a recent highway + trail ride in the low 40's and was kept nice and toasty the whole way. it's very comfortable, so you don't notice you're wearing it, which is often the case with some warm layers.
definitely a little expensive, but it does the job it promises to do.
Yes, I recommend this product.

not much to review here, as this is a pretty straightforward product that does what it is meant to do. it's comfortable, and it keeps your neck warm and prevents wind from entering into your jacket. it's also sweat-wicking to some extent and somewhat versatile in terms of other ways to use it (over your nose, as an ear-muff, etc.)
all in all a good winter piece of gear.
Yes, I recommend this product.

very lightweight, comfortable, and provides lots of airflow. not a whole lot of protection, but this is a great glove for commuting or riding trails.
as with all Rev'it products the sizing is totally bananas, runs very small. ordered a XXL and had to return for a XXXL. i'm not a mutant and normally would wear size L gloves.
Yes, I recommend this product.

these boots are very well made, with super simple styling and a very comfortable fit. they are really waterproof (granted, I haven't yet worn them in a total downpour, but in a steady rain they kept my feet totally dry).
the protection is minimal to be sure, but certainly better than any sneaker and even some boots would offer. reinforced toes, heel and ankle as stated. but nobody would know they're riding shoes, and I've had several compliments to boot (no pun intended).
i generally wear a size 13 US, and ordered a 47 which fits perfectly (with just a little extra room left for when thick socks are necessary). i imagine the size 48 would be way too big.
for a daily commuter they are exactly what I was looking for.

These gloves are extremely warm and aren't so bulky that they get in the way of controls. Haven't tried them out in the rain yet, but if they're really waterproof that'll be nice for a change. The insulation is like that thinsulate stuff... I've ridden in the mid 40's so far and my hands were nice and toasty.
As with any other Rev'It product, the sizing runs very small. I first got the XL and when my hands were on the grips my pinky was getting crushed by the glove, so I moved up to a XXL and now they fit just perfectly.

I had the AFX37 and really liked it, then I had the Joe Rocket DS helmet and liked that as well... but this 39 is on a whole other level in every respect. The fit is very comfortable, it's lighter than the 37, there are tons of added vents so airflow is excellent, the shield has little to no noticeable distortion, it has a breath guard and doesn't fog up. With all the vents it is a bit noisier than the previous model.
I honestly think this helmet kicks the Joe Rocket DS helmet's butt, and it's about $50 cheaper.
Note on the fit - My head measurement fell between a small and a medium, and because some people said it runs small (customer service) and others said it runs large, I ordered both to try them on. The small was just too small on the crown of my head and actually hurt a bit, and seemed too small in terms of the 'height' of my head as well (my chin stuck out a bit). The medium fits comfortably and snuggly, though I could possibly use larger cheek pads. The breath guard does just barely touch my nose, but nothing ridiculous.
