I debated for weeks and weeks on my first 'big money' leather jacket to replace my 10 year old ballistic nylon Joe Rocket.
I wanted something that i could make work spring to fall in northern New England (riding temps 50-80F). I paired this jacket with an Aztec shirt (see separate review), and so far am very happy.
I love the simple (few pockets and no flaps/velcro) but aggressive style (metallic shoulder armor etc) of this jacket, and the quality is very good.
Speaking of pockets. the inside chest pocket is perfect for an ipod, and the outer pockets are fine if all you need is a wallet and cell.
I admit i was very skeptical of the 'stretch panels' letting in too much cool air on a naked bike, but so far have been impressed with the temp regulation of the jacket between the panels and bubble liner in a range of temps with only a long sleeve t-shirt underneath. I just add the Aztec shirt for cooler days. I said this about the X5 boots, but most of the time i forget I am even wearing a jacket and am simply comfortable, which is about perfect in my book.
I did have to try multiple sizes (i'm 6'1" and 235lbs), and ended up with the size 60, which fits great. But the beauty of Revzilla is i was able to order and return several jackets until i found the right size. (Something my local dealer was unwilling to do b/c i'm into larger than their common sizes).
Overall, awesome jacket!

In trying to find something for cooler days, that would not be bulky under my Dainese Alien jacket, I tried on several wind-stopper type shirts. Some were very thin and did not seem to offer much wind protection. Others were too bulky and/or restricted movement.
The only complication was that I am typically an XL with typical american sizing and i had to go up to a 3XL for this shirt!
One feature that impressed was the neck zipper goes up the side, creating zero bulk around the front zipper of your outer jacket.
I wore this shirt under my jacket on a morning that started out at 39 degrees F, and was amazed at how much warmer i was, with less layers. Note that the 'Poor' rating for airflow above is actually a very positive review, since this shirt is NOT supposed to flow air!
Yes, I recommend this product.

I have always had military or swat style boots for riding, but this time around I was looking for a 'real' motorcycle boot that would be more sporting and have a less bulky sole for the foot controls on my new Streetfighter. But everything my dealer had either looked like a hiking boot or were so race oriented they made me fell like I needed to wear tights and a cape with them!
I found RevZilla and liked the simple but functional look of the TCX X5's right away. I typically wear a 10.5 or 11, so i first ordered the size 45 based on the tight fit of other Italian brands, but they were just too long on me. RevZilla made the return process very easy, and the 44's now fit me perfectly with a little break-in. Compared to other Italian brands I tried on, the TCX's are more generous with the width, which allowed me to drop down a size for a more compact overall boot.
To me, the best kind of gear is something that just becomes part of your body and you almost forget you are wearing it. I've now done two 150+ mile rides and all i can say is I love these boots!
Yes, I recommend this product.
