REV'IT! Women's Levante Jacket For those who dont want to choose between a waterproof, a traditional leather, and an air-mesh jacket, the REV'IT! Levante is a silver-bullet solution. This jacket, which comes fully equipped with CE-approved armor at shoulders and elbows, features a full mesh outer shell with an easily removable two-in-one fully waterproof thermal liner that can be stored in the back pocket when not in use. With the membrane removed the jacket can be upgraded with a Challenger cooling vest insert to take the edge off riding in hot weather.

I have had this jacket for a few weeks now and have worn it through heat and downpour and it has excelled in both conditions. I believe this will be a great 3-season jacket. The only downside is that the waterproof liner is also insulated, so in a warm summer rain, you're going to be sweaty. However, it did do a remarkable job keeping me dry and it doesn't absorb water as one might expect an insulated layer to do.
The fit is very nice/attractive, which is unusual for a riding jacket.
The "back protector" it comes with must be replaced by the SeeSoft protector, which works well and doesn't add bulk.
I also added the reflective vest (sized down 1 size) to the jacket, since it is black.

I have been using the Q2 for a couple of seasons (also purchased here at RevZilla). The G9 is a big upgrade. Connecting with other units seems simpler and more reliable. The G9 sound quality seems better and I like the option of 2 different microphones. I am still trying to work out which button does what, since there are quite a few buttons on this unit, but once I get that down, I think this will work quite well.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I purchased this Scala headseat from Revzilla on Wednesday afternoon and had it by Thursday evening (with 1-day shipping) so I could use it for the weekend (Thanks so much!)
I synced this up with my boyfriend's Schuberth Scala system and it worked very well between our 2 bikes. Voice-activation wasn't instantaneous, but it worked. We used it to communicate upcoming turns, stops, etc. and for some idle chit-chat. Because the voice-activation takes a minute, or doesn't always activate, this headset would not work well to communicate immediate road hazards (such as deer) unless you already had an open intercom session going with your riding partner.
A fully charged battery lasted for just about 2 days of riding and intermittent conversation. The range is not spectacular, but it's bluetooth, so that's to be expected. Out of sight more or less means out of range.
One annoyance is that you cannot adjust audio priority; the GPS always comes first. In theory, this is fine, but it also means that the times you most want to talk to your riding partner, such as "we're turning right up here" the GPS jumps in and cuts off the conversation. I opted to mute my GPS audio because I didn't need the turn-by-turn prompts.
Overall, I'm happy with the headset. It does what it's supposed to do right out of the box.
Yes, I recommend this product.
