These pants look fine, but only offer limited protection. Feel kind of naked in them... guess the Kevlar would help in abrasion, but not padding protection from impact. Could also benefit from a crotch gusset or more space. Couldn't see riding more than short rides in them.
Think I'll stick to the 'stich stuff, no mater how hot...

 REV'IT! Turbine Jacket
REV'IT! Turbine Jacket
The TURBINE is a must-have for the everyday rider looking for a premium protective summer mesh jacket. The goal in developing the Turbine was to create a 'bomb-proof' mesh jacket. With Pro-Life armor for impact resistance, and SuperFabric on the impact areas, the Turbine Jacket is the choice for those wanting the breathability of a lightweight summer mesh jacket, but who in the past have been nervous about the protective qualities of mesh PROTECTION FEATURES Outer Shell Dynax mesh, Cordura 1000D, PWRshell 500D, PWRshell 750D, SuperFabric, Lorica reg Composition outer shell 98 polyamide, 2 other fibres Lining 100 polyester Protection Pro-Life CE (level 1) protection at shoulders and elbows, SuperFabric on impact areas and perforated Temperfoam at back Visibility laminated reflection at chest and back Recommended Upgrade SAS-TEC SC-1/12 Back Protector (not included) Pocket fits SC-1/12 size SAS-TEC Back Protector All Men's Turbine Jackets have the same size back protector pocket ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit tour fit, regular Adjustability UTA tab at cuffs, flexisnap XL, adjustment straps at hips, adjustment tabs at upper and under arms Ventilation ventilation panels at chest, back and arms Features collar hook, stretch lips at elbows, long connection zipper and double short connection zipper Pockets slit pockets, membrane storage pocket, inner pockets Please Note The Turbine Jacket does not include a wind/waterproof layer as noted in the 2009 catalog, the specs changed after the catalog went to print. NOTE Turbine Jacket runs 1 size larger compared to other REV'IT Jackets and to what the size charts indicate. So if you measure up to be a size 52, you should go with a 50 instead.

Got as an alternative to my Aerostich for warm weather, short runs. Doesn't offer too much protection other than the padding, but that is the intent of the jacket. I usually wear a "long" size and this standard length fit fine.

Nice unit and plenty of volume. Had problems with previous systems - between helmet noise and poor hearing, could never hear. Only bought for music and cell phone, so can't comment on intercom. Too bad you have to remove part of helmet lining to install (chin curtain), makes helmet a bit louder/colder. Easy to install. Pairs w/o issue to iPhone.
Pros Comfortable
Yes, I recommend this product.

Well made helmet with good anti-fog characteristics. Very expensive, but should be worth it. Only wore it on one extended ride and it was quiet and warm (22 degrees F out). Only slight fogging issues, still figuring out the vent system...
Pros Quiet, Comfortable
Cons Expensive
Yes, I recommend this product.
