Rukka R-Star 2-In-1 Gloves The R-Star Gloves feature Rukka's 2-In-1, dual chamber system. The rider can choose between two separate entries, offering direct grip or extra warmth. In the warm chamber, the extra insulation provides optimum warmth over all sides of the fingers. In the grip chamber, the insulation is only on the back of the fingers. This means a higher level of tactility and increased breathability. Features Full cowhide leather construction Fully waterproof, windproof and breathable Gore-Tex gloves 2 In 1 technology Fleece lining Extra warmth for colder riding conditions with light insulation Knuckle protection of carbon fiber with leather overlay Scaphoid protection of Super Fabric Visor wiper in left hand Waterproof zipper and velcro strap provide positive closure

The gear geeks at RevZilla are correct: Order one size up.
Terrific winter gloves, fit is spot on. VERY comfortable, adjustments galore.
Yes, I recommend this product.

In searching out for most versatile gear, I checked these out in the 2012 glove guide as well as the specific guide. Then, I checked out the review below mine. He's absolutely right; more consideration should be given to the hands. And I've already been dealing with a pair for rain/colder & a pair for warmer. So really, not only do you not have to change the Air n Dry's out when the weather changes, but you're saving a lot of $$ since these gloves pull double duty with the greatest of ease.
I'm a long fingered 9, & the Air n Dry's fit me perfectly. And they are sooooo comfortable!
I have to admit I'm a tad old school in my tastes, & I almost gave the Air n Dry's 4 stars in style, but after having them on for awhile & realizing these gloves are ALL business/functionality, keeping that in mind, they look GREAT.
Your hands will thank you.
Yes, I recommend this product.

With info from the ZLA staff & your reviews, I ordered these thinking I'd be sending them back. NOT SO!!
Once I got them on I was totally blown away by how well they fit. Honestly, they feel surprisingly like my NB cross trainers, I jest not. WELL crafted. To me they look great. Easy to get on/off, love the shift pad. Wrapping this part up, these boots are the BEST footwear I own right now.
Now, because of Uall's reviews, here comes my suggestion in order to help someone that's where I was on the X5+ before purchase:
I'm somewhere between 10-10.5 US (closer to 10.5). And I'm not necessarily a wide foot. I personally like the looks of the TCX X5+, but had concerns about the wide footbed. I'll cut to the chase & say knowing what I know now if I had ordered a 44, I would be sending them back because yes, they would've been cavernous. They would've had too much toe room, & my feet would be sliding side to side. These 43's fit me perfectly. Note that the "Fit" & "Footbed" sliders are center.
Aware of our many variations in foot lengths/width, I suggest ordering the TCX X5+ ONE SIZE DOWN. Just give that a shot 1st whether you're in between sizes or maybe a narrower width, or like me; you like the looks but you're just not sure about the fit.
I am one SATISFIED customer. ;-)
Yes, I recommend this product.

I just wanted to get some basic rain pants but with the heat resistant shields ankle to knee. Though somewhat snug on me, I gave them a 5 because they're comfortable, let me move freely without having to be baggy. They FIT, which I find a little surprising for a rain pant. And I guess it's an "eye of the beholder" thing, but I think they look pretty cool.

I can't say enough about RevZilla's wonderful customer service. My jacket came FAST.
I had tried the Flex on previous to ordering, so I knew what I was getting. It's everything I was looking for in a jacket. Honestly, I was a little surprised in that it looked/fit better on 2nd impression.
I'm glad the outer shell removes to exposed the mesh jacket because this thing is WARM.
If I were to mention a con, I'd say it's on the heavy side, but again, that's what I wanted, & I do feel very secure/protected in the Flex S2.
Way to go, RevZilla! ;-)
Pros Rugged, Comfortable, Great Value, Fashionable
