I am 5'8", 165lbs, athletic build with a 31inseam, 42" chest and 32" waist. I bought a 50 based on the fact I was in between the video review test subject's size and Anthony's. The first thing you notice when pulling this suit out of the box is how feature laden it is. As with all Rev'it gear, the devil is in the details and this suit is extremely well made.
Size wise, this suit fits me better than my Alpinestars 52 in most areas. It has an aggressive preshape as noted in review and with full length back protector fits me very well. I could not fit into a 48 i believe with my shoulder/chest size. The shin guards fit into my boots easier than my Alpinestars making it less of a chore to put them on, nice. I can't speak for airflow, i haven't used it yet, will this week, but comfort from removeable liner is excellent.
If i had to nitpick, i'd say the alpinestars or dainese suits with full U shaped stretch panels along side of torso and down around waist are probably a little less baggy in riding position but not much, this suit has a partial U panel, so i notice a little more room in lower torso, but that just means it will continue to fit as i age.
The molded shoulder guards, while trick, are pretty pronounced, as they are in your peripheral vision constantly, but i'm sure i'll appreciate them when I go down. Randy DePuniet is still around right?
For me it was between this suit and the Dainese Red Line and Alpinestars Tech R1 for approx. the same $$. I feel this suit looks better than both in Black and White and has more features. The rep at Revzilla was very helpful and recommended the Alpinestars for stockier athletic builds but I couldn't resist and am happy with my decision.

I bought this after years with a pair of Sidi Vertigo's...of course. I think this boot is very comfortable, looks good, but tends to fit large for the size you need and squeaks like crazy when walking. Also, feel on the bike is not what the SIdi's were because of the inner bootie which further insulates your foot and deadens feel imo. The quicklace system is a nice feature but not necessary for me, more of use in a motocross or adventure boot. The Sidi's have better fit for a narrow to medium fit and better pedal feel because there is no inner bootie acting as padding. Almost like the inner bootie on a snowboard boot. This makes the boot hot as well. Also, the Fit/Finish of the Sidi's is getter, ie. less glossy plastic molded pieces or fake metal treatments that wear off instantly.
That said, I always struggled getting my leathers to fit inside my Vertigos' but the Alpinestars due to their larger volume accomodate shin guards in suits more easily. Also, i like the ratcheting ankle adjuster as its more durable and less finicky than the Sidi twist buckles which look like they were designed for bicycle shoes and are succeptible to breaking (done it) and are hard to adjust with gloves on. I think the ideal boot would combine the forefoot volume and close feel/fit of the SIdis with the ankle protection/adjustability of the Alpinestars. I'd still recommend them, especially at the closeout price but i think shopping around and trying on a few different brands is a must.
