I really like this better than the permanent mic, because I use the SMH-10 mostly for music. There is more room in the helmet due to the mic being detachable and the clamp itself is cleaner (no boom attached).
Works great, just like the other clamp kits. Just don't over-tighten the screws, you might get intermittent speaker functions. CS@ Revzilla told me it was the plate deforming and they are right. Hand tight people! Overall, I really like the total kit. No worries about skipping/changing volume while riding in the rain and soaking my phone! Sweet

1st bluetooth helmet device I purchased. Looked at the Revzilla reviews and went with it. These guys know their stuff, thanks Anthony and team for the great video reviews! Great, easy install and pretty good sound quality (with the stock speakers). I got the headphone accessory mount (sena) and use my own custom earmolds with some skullcandys smashed in there. Now the sound is really nice and I can have my phone in a waterproof bag in my side cases or backpack or jacket and not worry about wires to the phone or taking the phone out for volume adjustment. Haven't tried out the comm, but I hear good things. I ride about 30min 5 times a week to work and 1 charge is good for a week. Continuous (weekends) use gives me at least a full day's ride, 6-8 hours listening to music.

Exactly what I was looking for. 1st glove from Held for me, I will be sticking with their brand. Quality/fit/finish is really nice. You spend a little more (like $20 or so) for these than comparable gloves even without gore-tex (some other proprietary liner). I've been through most of them. My fingers are a little longer than most and I usually need the 3XL to get the palm material so i can stretch the fingers to fit right. These, I just measured, ordered up my size and they fit awesome! I really like the style and functional features. I've been in some torrential downpours and they are waterproof, then I tied out the 2nd liner (Air) and that was cool too. Plenty of airflow to the palm, the other side of the hand was windproof (goretex) but you sweat mostly from your palms anyway, so you open your grip on the bars and blast the air and instantly cool off. Mainly I wanted them for warm weather waterproof and then anything over 50 degrees F. Under that, I like a winter glove..if I know it's warm and sunny or a little rain...I'll do the short cuff summer gloves.

Decent Jacket, the fit is a little narrow in the upper back/shoulder area as described. Because of that, the sleeves are sometimes a little short, depending on riding position. The torso is a little large for how small the neck and shoulders are. Style is nice, I wanted something more stylish than the summer woven kevlar jacket I have from another manufacturer. I think the totally woven kevlar flows more air around the shoulders and arms, but you can tell from the Rev'It design those are solid panels and count on movement to cool you. Overall, i like this jacket. The neck is way too small, I have 3 other Rev'It jackets (older) and the necks on those are a good-tight. Even with the neck on the widest setting, very tight. ( so I leave it open) On a summer jacket only (no way waterproof) the neck should be comfortably loose. If you want to flow the most air and be comfy...go with the completely woven kevlar options, same price or cheaper and way more comfortable, if you like the style. Hopefully Rev'It will make something like that for next year.

Great style, fit is good and technical aspects are great! I went a size down from the size chart and it fits really nice. Arms are a little tight with my liners in (electric or fleece). Waterproof and durable. Airflow is great with all the vents open. I wish the neck cinched better. I think they went with a large neck for the neck braces. I am 6'6 or so 44" chest, 36" sleeve and athletic build. The Large was just about perfect.

Great pants, keep you dry and have a nice style. Also the vents are nice when it gets hot out. Not meant as an overpant but I ordered up one size to do that for me. Knee pads need to be re-positioned a lot (slide to the outer knee) so I'm hoping for a revision. Also the outer material is not treated with a DWR, so the outer shell will adsorb a little bit of water. No big deal, they dry very fast. Other than that, they are pretty good. If you're looking for an all around pant, these are a good option (commuter with work pants or alone with undies on the weekends). If you want a dedicated overpant, there are better options out there. I'm coming off 7 year old Aerostich AD1 pants and I kinda like those better for commuting to the office, but I'm making these work for now. Also the D3O armor is very comfy and slim!
Oh yea, 2012 R1200GSA and K1600GT (Ducati is gone, for now).

True to the RevIT size chart. Great quality summer glove with a lot of airflow. Also nicely rugged. I've gone through just about every $50 and under summer glove and RevIT has done it again! You don't feel clammy if you sweat in them or they get wet. They also don't start to loosen up or fall apart if they get wet. Great sport alternate summer glove and awesome summer touring glove. Style and color are nice, not too bling, but technical and attractive. RevIT has done it again, a little more money...but I'm sure these will last more than 1 season.
