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 RD 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!

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.

Looks and fits great!! But like others would have preferred that their logo on the front wasn't etched into the windscreen. They aren't paying me to advertise their products and if I buy it it's now mine.

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.

I originally bought the Sena with the boom mic, before they designed this device. Much better to use with a full face the with the boom.

This is a very good boot!! Its' starting to get warm in TX and it's getting a little warm to wear but overall it's very good for any other type of riding, especially the cold. The length is great for keeping pants from riding up and over. They are very comfortable after they broke in. Highly recommend and fast shipping from Revzilla!!
