Stop calling this an entry helmet! This is all most of us will ever need. The only thing missing is a chin curtain.
The fact that it is DOT certified only and not Snell means it is lightweight. In fact this helmet feels like it weighs the same as an RS1 or a Star. Looks great, fits a hair narrow (like all recent Bell helmets) with an encompassing cheek pads. so far I used this helmet for city riding only and at legal speed it is just as good as any helmet.
Photochromic shield from my RS1 swaps right on. Too bad the chin curtain, cheek pads or breathe box from the RS1 don't fit the Qualifier.

This back protector is the most flexible I own compared to my Sas-tec, Wave G, AStar Bionic, Knox TP2 and Forcefield Pro fitted to various jackets. Granted some of them are level 2 whereas this Sport Lite is Level 1 only.
Compared to Forcefield's own Pro insert, this one is lighter and much more flexible because the edges of the different layers are free to slip between each other. On the Pros the edges are held together.
The weight is average among level 1s, but you're not likely to tell the difference in weight when you're wearing it, unless your jacket is very very light weight. Again, it's best strength is it's flexibility. I held one end of the back protector horizontal and the protector bends downward almost 60 degrees at the other end under it's own weight, that's how flexible it is. It totally contours to my back, whatever my posture is.
Despite what the pictures would suggest, this insert is not perforated.

It's a quality fender kit. The fit and finishes are top class. The subtle screen printed Yoshimura logo and the row of LED under look a million dollar. The kit can be use with or without indicators. Without indicators the kit will leave a clean side profile without unused metal bracket.
Install took about an hour. One connection (2 wires) for the plate light to connect (connectors included). One note worth mentioning though is from where I live (BC, Canada) the license plate is slight bigger so the included license frame won't fit, but it is still needed as backing to solidly mount the indicator bracket. No big deal, I knew this from previous experience already. If you come from a state with bigger plate size don't be dissapointed at the fact that the frame cannot be used. Don't worry, it still look awesome!
Why buy from Revzilla? How about quick shipping, careful packaging, and Teamzilla cash? They also have a team of great people to suport you if you ever need to talk to someone about your purchase.

This pair of jeans differentiate from a lot of other riding jeans by having knee armor. And better yet, the external accessible armor pocket is a great feature! Comfortable and nicely styled too, although a bit boxy. I usually wear 31 to 32 jeans and got this in size 30. The 32 was just too big everywhere.
Too bad it doesn't have abrasion resistant lining in the bum.

My Tour Master heated vest comes with a double control. So I need this.
It is very straight forward, you either need one or you don't. If you find yourself with extra wirings hanging around for nothing because you only have one piece of equipment to plug in, this is a very good option. It may seem like a lot of money for something you already have, but having that one less loss wire clean up the whole set up. In my opinion it is also safer.

This is another typical Dainese product, which means it is stylish, high quality but pricey. Just look at that D-Dry liner. It's nicer finished than some stand alone jacket!
The jacket has a fitted cut. Go with the size chart for a tailored look or go one size up if you want to layer up. It is chilly here in Canada so I wear a heated vest underneath. The arms get cold from lack of thermal insulation but the liner blocks wind well.
The jacket has decent amount of mesh so I predict summer will be no problem. I intend to use this jacket for summer time sport touring.

You want style and protection for that ride to the restaurant or cinema? You've got to get yourself a pair of these!
These boots are sturdier than they look and needless to say they are modern and stylish. They're not your average Converse, they're padded and come with stiff heel and toe reinforcement. The sole has enough flex for walking comfortably but still supportive on the pegs. Perfect for city riding in my opinion.
I go with euro sizing for AStar boots because I find their US size correlation inconsistent between different models. For example, a euro42 is sometimes a US8.5, sometimes US8. Check the sizing chart carefully. I usually wear Euro 42 and the Joey in 42 fits me well.

I'll leave the protection certification level discussion to the experts at Revzilla but I'll share some thoughts on what it's like to wear.
I purchased this back protector to insert into my Revit Ignition 2 jacket and it fits perfectly. The jacket feels no different than if I am only using the foam insert that came with the jacket, that's how lightweight and comfortable this back protector is. But it is still CE certified nevertheless.
For comparision, I have a SAS-TEC back protector in my other Revit jacket. The SAS-TEC is just as pliable but heavier and thicker than the Knox. Lastly, I have a Forcefield back insert in a Dainese and the Forcefield insert is definitely the heaviest and thickest and you will be able to feel the weight.
It is about balance so judge for yourself what level of protection you want and choose accordingly. Pesonally I'd go with the Knox for city commutes and the SAS-TEC for longer rides.
If you are interested in purchasing this knox back insert, don't forget to confirm the dimensions as there can be subtle differences even though the pocket appears to have a similar shape.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is a very high quality leather jacket. The best Dainese has to offer.
The leather is soft right out of the box and fits like a glove. I ordered a size 48 and compared to my Dainese Racing leather jacket in the same size 48, this one has a little less space around the chest. It's probably due to the thicker and more comfortable bubble liner. The jacket feels very sturdy and looks great. You can definitely feel air coming in through the chest panels. With a back protector in and hump and all, the back perforation is harder to feel. I have yet to use the vents. As with all Dainese jacket, I wish the lower back of the jacket is a little longer and has a jean clip or short zipper.
The Neck 5 system creates mixed feelings. Although it's not certified it does make the jacket feel more protective near the neck and shoulder. It's very comfortable to wear. However, it rubs against the base of my helmet when my head tilts backward while riding. I have a supersport. I imagine it'll be fine on a more upright riding motorcycle.
In my opinion, this jacket is probably a tad overpriced at the regular price, as lesser Dainese Leather offer almost the same features and style but at hundreds less. But at discounted price it makes it a top choice.
Thanks Revzilla for sorting out my last minute change of mind. One phone call and I immediately got my order changed. The next day it was on its way to me already!

I am very satisfied with the bag. Sturdy construction and looks very good and clean on the bike. My R6 has factory "shopping straps" under the seat that works exactly like the straps provided with the Kriega so strapping on my bike is even easier. My buddy spent 5 minutes trying to tying down his luggage and this takes 10sec max.
It's not cheap but worth it.
Revzilla service is awesome as always.
