Dainese Razon Leather Jacket The road flashing beneath your saddle, the wide open spaces of the prairie, the pulsing of the pistons you can feel in your arms and everywhere else as sunlight glints off the engine chrome, and choppers riding in formation roar down the road. Constructed in leather that is both thick and soft at the same time, the Razon jacket combines innovative technical solutions like patented Microelastic inserts with the essential style and strong character of the bikers who wear it. Provided with removable composite protectors, ventilation, and removable thermal lining, this jacket is also available in a Women's version. Protection Composite protectors certified to Standard EN1621.1/97 Ergonomics and Comfort Microelastic elasticated inserts Inserts in elasticated fabric Neck adjustment Waist adjustment Jacket-trousers fastening system Air inlets on the chest Removable thermal liner Sanitized lining Other Tutu cowhide leather Pocket for G1 and G2 back protector Pocket on removable liner 2 outside pockets Internal pocket

I own a lot of jackets but this is the one i reach for the most. It's super stylish, very very comfortable and offers a good protection (with a back protector that is not included)
I'm a tall guy at 6'6", weigh about 245-250 and size 60 is a perfect fit in every Dainese jacket. (i own the Alien as well)
Too bad i don't have the perforated version as it wasn't available at the time i was buying, i'd love to wear this jacket all the time on and off the bike, (for the really hot days i reach for the Rev'it Tarmac, which is also top notch)
Overall, if you can justify the price, you will not be disappointed, i promise you that

I'm not disappointed 'coz i knew what i was buying- a casual shoe, in no means a riding shoe. Anyone who thinks these are riding shoes should think again. They have a great style, are made of leather throughout and look stylish with jeans or shorts on. I actually bought all three colors (they make them in a nice white/red combo too, that's how much i liked my first pair (black). If you are buying these for what they're and this is your kinda shoe, you won't be disappointed, you shouldn't wear these as riding shoe if you value your feat however.

I'd love to give this product a 5* rating but... well let's start with the good things:
Just like Anthony pointed out in the review, the ease of use is excellent, even with your gloves on, the dial is easy to work with. Just press or rotate for all your functions.
The sound clarity is good, even though i only gave it a 3 * rating, that's only because of the bluetooth, it cuts off my music way too often. Maybe i just have a faulty piece 'coz i don't see many people complaining about it, but it cuts off every 20-30 s. When i move my phone it gets better, no matter if i move it closer or further away from the helmet. That's kinda weird. Overall, a good piece for the money though

This thing is great. Let's u wear all your jackets without a back protector and ads the chest and side protection too. The mesh is a great touch. U forget u have it on and the airflow is excellent. No cons for me, just a big thumbs up. I'm 6'6" 245lbs muscular build, bought an XL and it fits perfect, not too tight, not too loose. I like the protection and feel without the bulk. Perfect.
And obviously, Zilla is by far the best on the market so no doubt i'll be back for more stuff

This is exactly what i was looking for. Simply the best jacket for the summer. I believe i got it. Got about 7 jackets for the spring-winter time, this is by far the best one. Can't say enough of the style, air flow, secure feeling when wearing it... obviously it's mesh/textile so i don't expect it to hold up as good as leather if... but honestly, i wouldn't be able to wear a leather jacket in the hot humid days. Even though if u r looking for a very nice perforated leather jackets, may i suggest the Alien from Dainese and the Stinger from Scorpion. They are the best of both worlds.
Safe riding to us all

REV'IT! Airwave Pants The perfect match for the REV'IT! Airwave jacket, these trousers are also great over-pants to wear on top of your jeans during summer commutes. The large air mesh panels allow for maximum cooling, but that's not all they're on and off in seconds, thanks to the long inside zippers. Reflective panels at the lower legs ensure great visibility at all times. Even more, the Knox Flexiform CE-approved armor is located in height adjustable pockets, allowing you to position the armour just the way you like it. Available in classic black or fresh silver. PROTECTION FEATURES Outer shell polyester 600D , PWRshell 500D stretch, PWRshell mesh, polyester rib Visibility laminated reflection at calf Protection Knox Flexiform CE protection at knees , prepared for TRYONIC Seesoft CE-level 1 type B hip protector insert - version RV01 ( sold separately ) ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit tour fit , regular Adjustability adjustment straps at waist, adjustment tab at ankles Ventilation ventilation panels at legs Features easy entrance zipper at calf, adjustable protector pockets, short connection zipper, elastic at waistband Pockets slit pockets

Depends what u r looking for, these are great. I was looking for exactly these kinda pants. (in fact i'm just ordering me a second pair in white, since i already got black) They're very comfy. easy to quickly put on and off thanks to the great thigh high zipper, very good airflow, but have a good liner (still just one and a half season though so make o mistake), nice to ride in around the town (would get chilly on a cooler day on a highway) and they look low key in the black. Match my A* stealth jacket, Sidi black boots, handroid gloves in black and a black RS1 helmet very nicely. I get a lot of looks (even though that's not as important to me) and respect on the streets (that is lol)
The fit is loose as u'd expect from these kinda pants. I'm 6'6" 245lbs with muscular build and 36" waist and the XL tall fits as good as a guy of my size can expect-little short. But the Sidis i wear are short boots, my A* are taller, that's do the trick but they're white, i like black with these pants, but it's nothing nice knee high black Rev'it socks won't fix so overall i'm very happy
Highly recommend but u must know what u want.

In my opinion (which matters at least in this review) this is BY FAR the best "bang for the buck" motorcycle gear in the world. I have way too many jackets for any clever explanation, not to mention other gear, of which some i haven't even had on yet (oh boy, now thinking about it, i guess i'm like a woman with clothes!) and this is simply the best jacket for the price. I can compare it to Dainese and A* jackets i have which cost HUNDREDS more than this thing and that's amazing. I honestly recommend it

...IF you are looking for a VERY baggy fit on legs to, for example, accomodate your knee guards or a brace and protective shorts or pants. The waist fits perfect though (which makes these the most comfortable pair of jeans i have personally ever worn) with riding jeans sizing- jeans are longer so they don't rise up when you're riding for that embarrassing "show off your socks" look. So length is perfect as well. These jeans are of few that have kevlar on the side of thighs as well as knees and butt, with most others only having the last two. The denim seems of good quality, i read a customer review somewhere that even though AGV is claiming 13.5 oz. denim it actually has 12.5 oz. I couldn't find a proof of this anywhere on the jeans themselves, the tag says "100% cotton" and no other tag is present. Beware of one thing, the color is MUCH darker than the picture shown, which was a little bit disappointing but definitely not a deal braker. They're not black, just dark blue, not a bad color just giving a little heads up.
Overall, these jeans are great for what i was looking for 'coz i needed jeans that would accept some considerable protection underneath and these fit the bill perfectly.

Awesome product for what they are. Don't let your knees to be exposed on long rides. I use these for anything more than just around the town riding (have a pair if Dainese V knee guards for city crusing which are slimmer)
The protection and padding in these are second to none. They are very comfortable and protective (for what they're supposed to do), they're lightweight to the point u forget you have them on, very breathable even though they don't flow air enough to be 5* in that category, but they won't let your knees be sticky and sweaty. I have a lot of protective gear ('coz i sacrifice all the bike tuning and customizing in favor of protection) and Alpinestars, Dainese and Forcefield are simply the best (in no particular order, they compliment each other extremely well with every brand bringing something else to the table, f.i. Forcefield-THE BEST back protector, shirt and shorts, A* THE BEST protective vest and street knee guards, Dainese THE BEST protective leathers...)
Everyone who is like me- that cares about protection a little more than the average Joe-should honestly pick these up. $100 is a lot less than a patella tendon surgery (trust me, unfortunately i know)
These won't protect you from ACL/MCL injuries, as they don't have the lateral support needed for this kinda protection, but the braces that do are about $500 more so you have to be reasonable.
Overall, i haven't find a better, more comfortable patella, knee cup protection, that you can wear under a bit looser riding pants, yet

These pants are amazing. I have to say, i always remove all the armor from every pant i buy 'coz i'm a protective gear nut, i use a stand alone knee protection and protective shorts instead the silly useless armor that the companies put in their products from the factory. But these pants are still great. The size is spot on, they could be a tiny bit longer (when i wear my riding shoes not my boots they rise up a little too much), but for most of you they're gonna be good as i'm 6'6". I weigh in at 240 lbs, i have an athletic build and these fit me perfect. Be careful and stay away from these if you have something extra around the waist, there is no way you'll make these fit on your waist. I'm 36" in regular jeans and the XL here is spot on. The armor they come with is regular basic armor that u see in almost every pair of pants right out of the factory. Nothing to write home about, but even though these are snug fitting pants (my tightest pair of riding pants) i'm able to wear my Dainese Knee V Guards and Forcefield Protective Shorts (which have a thick armor) underneath. I have a medium-thick thighs (no chop sticks but no Boeing 747 body) and i fill these out perfectly and can even squeeze the above mentioned shorts in them. They flow a great amount of air through the mesh panels on your quadriceps, hamstrings and if you're not wearing boots, your tibia. These are great for the summer and they don't come with a liner which is perfect 'coz it keeps the price down and buying a mesh pant to ride in when it's cold out is silly. Overal A BIG THUMB UP
