I have the original SMH10 bought in 2010, and only had to replace it because it's only lasting 5 hours. It was used a lot since I put on around 80K miles during that time. This one has even better features, far better sound, great battery life and just as easy to use. I highly recommend this product!

Wanted a jacket to wear during the summer weather that can provide decent protection as well as great air flow, this jacket is perfect. The arms take a little to get used to putting on but so far feels great while riding.

They are small sized. The part that I have trouble with them is the knuckle, feels rough and hard on mine, should have have had a softer inside. Also the touch pads still make it hard to effectively use, if they were as they are pictured they would have worked better. They are only on the outside.

Excellent helmet, my second one. Fits tight so order slightly larger. Only real complaint is the air bladder covering the speaker location, shouldn't be covering that location. Also wish that they would make darker internal visors, more like sunglasses, they just aren't that dark.

REV'IT Vapor Jacket The REVIT Vapor Jacket is distinguished from other all-weather sport touring jackets on the market by its unique ventilation feature that is 100 percent waterproof when zipped up, yet allows direct airflow to the body when activated. The secret lies in a special construction of the vent in the z-liner waterproof membrane, which opens up all the way through to the jackets outer shell. This feature transforms a regular z-liner constructed jacket into a true four-season piece. Another innovation from REVIT!s in-house R&D department is the new height-adjustable straps at the waist and under arms, which help ensure a perfect fit for almost every body type. The Vapor Jacket is great for all year touring as well as four-season commuting! Protection Features: Outer shell: schoeller dobby fabric, PWRshell dobby, PWRshell 500D stretch, polyester dull 450D, hypalon Insulation: detachable thermal liner Waterproofing: hydratex Z-liner (5000mm H2O) Breathability: hydratex Z-liner (5000g/m2/24hrs) Composition: outer shell: 94 polyamide, 5 polyester, 1 elastane lining: 100 polyester thermal liner: 100 polyester (insulation 100 polyester) Protection: ProLife CE protection at shoulders and elbows prepared for Seesoft CE-level 2 back protector insert - type RV Type RV / Size 04 fits SM-MD Type RV / Size 05 fits LG-2XL Type RV / Size 06 fits 3XL Visibility: laminated reflection at chest and back, laminated reflective logos at chest, back and upper arms Ergonomic Features: Fit: race fit, regular Adjustability: UTA tab at cuffs, flexisnap, variable height adjustment straps at waist and under arms, adjustment tab at upper arm, adjustment drawcord at hips Ventilation: VCS aquadefence, VCS I zipper at back, chest and under arms Features: prepared for Challenger Cooling vest insert, prepared for Vest Connector HV, collar hook, short and long connection zipper, stretch panels at inner sleeve and arm pit, comfort collar Pockets: slit pockets, document pocket, inner pockets

This is a GREAT jacket! Fits great but if you have a big chest and/or arms this will NOT be a good jacket for you. It's definitely a European fit. Take the time to properly adjust it using the rails and you'll love it. So much lighter then my very heavy leather jacket and far better thermal protection, esp with the liner and fits so good! Road in 30 degree weather with the thermal liner at 80mph and was toasty warm. If I replace the liner with my Gerbing heating system I could see myself going even lower temperatures. Also agree that this wouldn't be a good jacket for summer, even with the liner and vents open, just too warm for that. Highly recommend this jacket.

Blocks the wind, very warm so only really good on cool days, seals up perfectly around the neck. Also like being able to use the hood or not.

They are VERY easy to get on and off but still could have added a few features. Knew about the missing front zipper but would have been nice to have. Would have preferred both zippers colored to easily find when putting on. Except for the zippers they work the same way as my leather chaps. If you allow for the missing features they are a good buy.

The 2 'fingers' are different but I can feel that it does help to keep your hands warmer then regular gloves. I did have the return and exchange it for a larger size, even when following the size chart, but might be that I have long fingers. Sill having a chance to try them in really cold weather but so far they work great. I little adjustment since I sometime use 3 fingers but easy enough enough to adjust.
