I bought these approximately 2.5 years ago. They are a very good boot but are not meant for extended periods of walking around. My boots have about 20,000 riding miles on them and are still great. I have noticed the heel protector starting to dig into my heel when walking around, when riding, it doesn't. They were dry during Tropical Storm Andrea while riding. I am very pleased with these boots and likely will replace them with the same when I finally wear them out.
Yes, I recommend this product.

REV'IT! Ladies Violet Long Sleeve Shirt Purpose-built for summer use, the ultra lightweight VIOLET ladies long-sleeved base layer top offers superb moisture-management properties, through the use of a special round-knit, open-knitting technique. Again, thanks to body mapping analysis, the fabric at the back, chest, armpits and elbows of the VIOLET is even more open, to wick away excess moisture as effectively as possible. This helps keep you dry and comfortable on even the warmest days. PROTECTION FEATURES Outer shell polyamide Composition 93 polyamide, 7 elastane ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit regular Features Seamless in 3D round knit technology Moisture wicking function Antibacterial finish Odor control Air spacer ribs at shoulders Airvent zone at armpit 3D-airvent zone at front chest Insulation guards at elbow and side waist Climate control unit at back Autofit cuffs and hem

I do long distance riding and 24 hour rallies. I desperately needed a summer base layer because in the past the layers i wore would cut into my skin in the 16th and above hours. I was a little skeptical about this product because of the ridges used for creating airflow. I thought I would start to feel those ridges after many hours of riding. I am SO glad to say they did not. The layers kept be cool and comfortable. I felt the airflow like I had never felt it before. The Violet shirt and pants were far more comfortable than the LD brand base layers. Even after the rally ended, i didn't feel the layers at all. the Violet base layer system are great products and I highly recommend them.

REVIT Women's Ventura Jacket Serious equipment for the serious female rider. The REVIT Ventura Ladies jacket includes all of the important safety and practical features of a top-of-the-line adventure jacket, but with some specific features that enhance the comfort level even more. A good example is the waterproof, detachable liner, which can be easily removed and stowed away in the back pocket. Huge two-way zippers at the sleeves, and a fully removable collar that hides a big air mesh panel, allow the wind to flow in freely. Bottom line The worlds first true ladies adventure jacket. Ready for Paris but made for Dakar.

I've had other jackets which claimed they were womens' cut but were actually just sizes smaller from the men's cut. after getting this jacket i fell in love with it! it fits well and looks great. i was a little skeptical about the breast vents, but when I had them open the air circulated around to my back. The venting is wonderful. I am very happy with this purchase. It's worth the money to have something that fits right.

This is my second Olympia summer jacket. This jacket fits very well and compliments a woman's figure. Previous jackets made me look a bit man-ish when fully dressed up for riding, but this one leaves not doubt that there is a female under all the armor. I personally can vouch for the durability of the materials as well. My last Olympia summer jacket saved my skin during a crash, I had no marks to show for it. This being made of the same material will be just as protective as the last. I am so very pleased with this gear, and for the price it's a helluva steal.

I have been riding for 25 years. For 3 of those years I did not own a 4 wheeled vehicle and lived in the North East. So that meant a ton of cold weather riding.
I still ride as long as it is above 25.
Normally, that means a lot of layers and hiding behind my windscreen.
I bought this on the recommendation of my girlfriend, who is a first year rider. Guess I had a lot to learn, as this is the way to ride in the cold.
It was not terribly cold, but was around 50 degrees and clammy and at night. Normally this is call for the thermal liner in my jacket and a sweatshirt. I rode 2 hours in a tshirt with the gerbing liner under my jacket.
I can only describe the feeling like a warm hug. I was so comfortable, it felt like a ride on a summer evening. I had a lot of warmth on my back and rear of my arms. It struck me as odd, until I moved around a bit and realized the liner was not in contact with my chest and front of my arms. As soon as I put those parts in contact with my body, the heat was flowing.
Love the product, love the concept, and look forward to more comfortable riding in the cold weather this year.

This allows you to put your heated gear connector out of the way, and gives you freedom of movement when plugged in. First time I rode with my gear plugged in, I got monkey butt and stood up on the pegs to stretch. Oops, unplugged myself.
Bought this item, and no such problem.
Also use this in conjunction with my X moto jacket and the gerbing battery. Put the battery in the back pouch, connect to the liner via this extender, and have a warm jacket for walking around with. Great set up.

I bought these pants after buying a BMW F800ST which generates heat in the left leg. The pants have superior ventilation being mesh pants and all. The Cordura feels good against the leg (I wear spandex under the pants in 90+ degree weather) and is of course highly durable. The armor feels good and is adjustable to suit people of all heights. They fit well and are feminine, there's no mistaking I'm female when riding. The inside liner is decent although when riding in steady rain my upp legs did get a little wet. I am now a very loyal Olympia customer.
