Great tailpack. Lots of room for commuting. I can put lunch, a big bottle of water, extra gloves, set of keys and visor without even expanding it. The netting on top is great for extra stuff as well. I have not expanded it but it has rigid plastic pieces built in that you flip up when expanding. It is a quality piece of gear as long as the zippers hold, which has always been the issue with any pack I've had. Only time will tell. It removes very easily from the mounting portion to carry with you as a backpack. The mounting portion also doubles as a very small tail pack, which is quite nice. My only slight gripe is that it seems to be upside down when carrying as a backpack. The shoulder straps make it so the larger part faces up towards your shoulders. You can see that on the website. It should be with the larger part of the pack facing down to the ground. Then you would be unzipping the opening and loading it from the top like a regular backpack. Not sure what they were thinking on that. It doesn't make sense. Other than that, it is very nice.

Good protection at the compromise of air flow.

I do like this glove. As with all Rev it gear I have, it is very well made for a decent price. Protection is good, it is soft and comfortable. I did order a size larger as suggested. I don't know why they call it a short glove because it goes about 2" past your wrist and fits under your jacket sleeve. Not saying this is bad, just saying. My previous summer gloves went barely to my wrist. It's a good looking glove for sure. Air flow is limited though. There are perfs in the fingertips, palms and back of hands. I have had summer gloves that flow much more air, BUT, did not afford the same amount of protection. That's the tradeoff. I do think they could have put some perfs between the fingers without sacrificing protection.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Alpinestars S-MX1 Boots A complete revamp of its predecessor, the Alpinestars S-MX 1 Boot is low profile, comfortable, and fuctional with a refreshed style in both black and white. It also has a toe slider, velcro adjustment strap and a styled TPU shift pad. This shoe will go up against any of the other sport riding shoes and boots in the 100 to 200 range. Look for the S-MX 1 Riding Shoes to be a perennial favorite for the casual enthusiast and hard core sport riders. Features Upper constructed from lightweight microfiber Breathable mesh inserts and perforated side panel for enhanced ventilation Foam backed, double density ankle protector on the medial side Reinforced toebox layered under the microfiber upper Plush 3D mesh inner liner Combination zipper and Velcro strap closure system Outsole constructed with the same advanced rubber compound as the S-MX 5 Boot External TPU protection on the outer ankle External TPU shift pad, slider and heel counter Integrated shank in the sole for extra rigidity Anatomically profiled EVA foam footbed.

Overall I really like this boot. It flows plenty of air and is a good looking boot. They could have used something to cinch it up at the top because it is loose around the ankle. Could not give it an excellent rating on features because of that. I wouldn't recommend it for track use, but as a casual summer boot it works well. Protection is decent for what it is.
Yes, I recommend this product.

First of all, these pants look much better than the pics show, and they look great on. People complain about price, but you get what you pay for with these. They are very well made pants as far as I can tell. They fit nice, they look good and the protection seems top notch. I've worn these for a couple weeks for my everyday commuting and they are pretty comfortable for what they are - a fitted pair of leather pants where the protection stays in place. These are slimmer fitting pants so if you have thick legs or are out of shape, you might want to consider something else. I am 6'3" 185 with a slim athletic build and at the advice of the guys at Revzilla, I chose the 52 long. This was one size up from my measurements because I wanted to wear shorts or jeans underneath. They could have been a half inch longer in the length for when I'm in riding position, but no biggie. I can't speak for durability at this point but they look very well made. As far as air flow, its hard to find a truly protective pair of pants with good air flow and I don't think you can do much better than these. I've been in 85 to 90 with these and they do well. I don't care what you wear above 90, you will be hot. If I start to get a little warm, I just stand up and let the air flow through for 15 seconds or so. I use to sweat with my textiles at 85 degrees, but not with these. Also bear in mind that there is low humidity where I ride which does make it nicer. Overall I am extremely happy with this purchase and would definitely buy these again. I think they are worth the price.
