This jacket appears to be well built with premium material. The jacket seems to run about a 1/2 size small in the body but it does have good arm length for me (I usually wear tall sizes).
The stand alone liner jacket is a nice feature from Olympia and it makes for a good light destination jacket.
I believe that this jacket should come with better armor for this purchase price. The armor in the elbows and shoulders is substantial but is fairly bulky and rigid and sometimes will twist in the armor pockets when putting on the jacket without any other liners installed. Some of the higher tech soft armor (like D30) really makes this jacket better. I installed some Scorpion Sas-Tech armor from another jacket and much preferred the fit and comfort.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The foot extender really helps out when parking a top heavy bike like the S10 on questionable ground. The quality is excellent and it is a 5 minute install. It is a little pricey.

I purchased a pair of the Sena headsets to serve as an intercom system to be able to communicate with my wife during rides. (She has her own bike). The headsets were an easy install and it took me about 30 minutes to rig up both helmets and synch. The systems work great, the sound quality is very good. Range is a few hundred yards and battery life is good so far. I haven't tried to use the systems with phone or GPS. Instructions could be better.
Yes, I recommend this product.

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

These pants are really nice and fit very well. I wear a tall or long size and have trouble finding quality pants. Make sure that you use the Revzilla sizing guidelines for ordering. The waist sizes are really your gut size and if you have any stomach, ordering your normal jeans size will result in a size too small. I really wish that Revit would make the matching jacket in tall sizes.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I purchased this helmet because I was interested in a light helmet with good visibility and this helmet was getting good reviews. The helmet is light, comfortable, and generally well made. The one con of this helmet is that the shield has the distortion of a $100 helmet not one costing over $400. The other problem is that the cheek pads fit tight enough that it is hard to wear sunglasses and the tinted shields are sold out and not available anywhere that I can find. With the wide opening, it is uncomfortable to where this helmet in the sun. It's going to set on a shelf until I can find a tinted shield.
Yes, I recommend this product.
