I have not had these that long and they are still breaking in - that said I'm pretty happy with these. First about the fit. I have a very wide palm and short fingers so finding gloves that fit is a real challenge. I went up to Revzilla and must have tired on 60 pairs of gloves with little success. Kat up at the store advised me to go with a tight glove as it would stretch out. (always get great advice and service from the store staff). The Air Steam was uncomfortbaly tight but did fit in the fingers. Kat was right, it is forming to my hand nicely so I'm glad I listened.
I ride a gold wing so I was looking for a summer glove with some protection in the event of a low side fall but nothing too aggressive. The Held Air Stream met those needs while being cool and comfortable. I'm very happy with the super fabric on the palm and pinky for extra safety. They seem to be well made but time will tell. Only downside is that cuff is narrow and it much go under the jacket sleeve.
They were expensive but I'm happy with the purchase. As always, Revzilla was just great to deal with!

I purchased the duel pack on sale so for me it was an excellent value. Beyond the price I am very happy with these units and have a fair amount of hours on them. I have used them driver to passenger, bike to bike, iPhone4 integration for telephone and music. Only negative (and it is not that big of deal) is that is does not integrate in anyway with the the Honda Goldwing navigation or audio system.
I have installed these on a Shoei Quest and RF-1100 helmets. The installation was simple and took about 10 minutes. The controls are easy to use and intuitive once you learn them. My experience is that these last a long time on a single charge. I have yet to have them die out on me after a few days riding ( and I'm using them extensively to listen to music on the bike).
The sound quality is good. I wear earplugs so at time it it difficult to get the volume as high as I would like but it works fine and I can still here traffic or GPS. The voice command feature also works great for me with the iphone4 to place calls or start playlists.
Passenger to passenger intercom works great. Bike to bike is also good but I had a problem with range. I lost connection behind a large building so perhaps it was the conditions. I don't do this that much to have a good feel for its performance.
Overall I'm very happy with these units and I would buy again without hesitation. As always, outstanding experience with Revzilla at every level.

I purchased a RF-1100 to replace my Shark Evoline ST because it was too heavy. I'm very happy with this helmet. I went up to the Revzilla store and worked with Bobby (the best customer service) who walked me through several brands and models. The Shoei just fit the best and had the features I wanted. The removable liner was a must have for me and all the interior material is very comfortable. From my perspective, the venting is very good. The 4 exit vents in the rear of the helmet alone keep thing nice and cool but with the front 2 open it really pushes air through the helmet. Peripheral vision is excellent on this helmet. I also installed the SENA SMH10 with no problem as well as the pin lock visor. The detent for airflow is an excellent feature. I have spend hours with this helmet on and it has remained comfortable during extended rides. Overall I'm very happy with the RF-1100 and I see it lasting a long time.

I hate to give a negative review. First let me say this has nothing to do with the outstanding service I receive from Revzilla - it is about the Gerbings Core S2 jacket.
The jacket itself looks to be well make. I'm 6'0' and 185ibs and take a medium. The jacket is designed to fit tight in order for the core heat to work. Overall it fits great and the material is warm even without it being on. Now for the bad news. For some reason, my battery cuts off on the lower settings. it just turns itself off. At full power, the battery that comes with the jacket only last 2 hours so the lower setting are important. I called Gerbings and it took forever to get a response which was - we have had some issues but try putting a rubber bank around the battery and plug. This works and when the jacket performs as designed I really like it. However, at $199 it is a lot of money for a defective product.
I would be very hesitant to buy another one with the same technology or for that matter any of the Gerbing line.

I purchased the Knoxx TP2 for installation in my Revit Dragon jacket. Installation was simple. Fortunately I have not TESTED the product on a fall. It is an important piece of equipment that is comfortable in the jacket so I'm glad I got it.

 REV'IT! Dragon Jacket (4XL)
REV'IT! Dragon Jacket (4XL)
A removable lining is not unique. But a removable lining that looks like a stylish jacket on its own is. The DRAGON offers that and more as a true example of a four-season textile jacket, with all the advantages of the REVIT! 3-layer integrated system. This makes it perfect for a variety of climates and weather conditions and a great 4-season jacket choice. This jacket will zip with any current model men's REV'IT Pant but feature-wise the Dragon Jacket matches up most closely with the REV'IT Sand Pants. PROTECTION FEATURES Outer shell PWRshell 750D, Cordura 1000D, high density polyester 600D, Lorica Insulation detachable thermal liner Waterproofing detachable hydratex G-liner (5000mm H2O) Breathability detachable hydratex G-liner (5000g/m2/24hrs) Composition outer shell 65 polyamide, 34 polyester, 1 other fibres lining 100 polyester thermal liner 100 polyamide (insulation 100 polyester) membrane 100 polyamide (100 polyurethane coating) Protection Knox CE protection at shoulders and elbows, EVA foam at back Visibility reflection at back and upper arms ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit tour fit, regular Adjustability flexisnap XL, adjustment straps at waist and upper arms, adjustment tabs at under arms and cuffs, adjustment drawcord at hips Ventilation VCS I zippers at back, chest and under arms Features comfort collar, short connection zipper, separate wearable hydratex G-liner Pockets stash pockets, membrane storage pocket, hand warmer pockets, inner pockets

I have owned this for several months now and have several thousand miles on it. Overall I'm very happy with this purchase even at full price which I paid. It has a Hi-Viz component without being over the top. The layers can be a bit of a pain to take in and out but not so bad that I would not buy the jacket. I'm 6'0" and 185 lbs and I went with the XL. The european fit works well with my frame. As far as I can tell the quality is top notch. I have not been out in the rain with it so I can't speak to that but I have been out in everything between 80 and 30 and it has worked well. I did add (separate purchase) the knoxx back armor which I think is important. It was a simple install.
I went to the Revzilla store and the staff was great in helping me choose this jacket. Several others just did not fit right and it was great to compare on the spot. It also helped to sit on some of the bikes in the store to see how it feels in a riding position.
Overall I'm very happy with this purchase and would buy it again. Revzilla customer service was excellent as always.

I have owned the Evoline 2 ST for about a year. I usually take a Large in some of the other brands but the Evoline 2 ran big - I ended up taking a Medium.
I chose this helmet over a full face for two main reasons. First, I wear glasses and it was the easiest to get my glasses on and off - and its design is very glasses friendly. Second, I wanted the ability to get a drink with out taking the helmet off. On both of these counts the Evoline performs very well.
Pro:
Interior pads come out and can be washed
Works well both in full face mode and 3/4 mode
Internal Sun Visor works well - no issues
Cons:
This this is HEAVY helmet - after a few hours you really know it is there and can be tiring.
Summary - I think it is a great helmet but if I had knew how heavy it was I may have made a different choice.
