The fit of the storage bag is just a little bit snug for the Shoei RF-1100 face shield. But once the face shield is properly lined up and inserted in the bag the fit is just fine.
The storage bag has a built-in strap or belt that would allow you to carry this around your waist while on the bike. In my case I transport it in a tail bag and the strap becomes more of a nuisance than a feature.
All in all it's a well-designed, well-constructed bag that does just what it was intended to do.

I recently purchased the Cyclone H2O Rain Jacket for a touring trip in Arkansas. I only had to wear the jacket once during the trip but when I needed it, it worked perfectly. We had torrential rain for about 30 minutes. When it started we were able to get under an overpass, quickly don our rain gear, and continue on our way. Once the rain stopped and we got off the bikes for fuel, it was a simply matter to fold the jacket, put it back in the stuff sack, and put it back in the saddlebags.

I purchased the 31mm cheek pads as replacements for the 33mm cheek pads that came in my RF-1100 helmet. With the 33mm cheeks pads in the helmet the fit was acceptable but a bit on the tight side (helmet is a Medium). I occasionally found that I would bite the inside of my cheek if I was chewing gum during a ride due to my cheeks being squished by the pads. After swapping to the 33mm pads that problem has been resolved. The fit of the helmet is still snug, but my cheeks are no longer getting squished.
Removal of the old pads and installation of the new pads was very easy thanks to the included instructions.
Changing the pads was a much cheaper solution than getting a new, larger helmet.

Dark Smoke helmet worked perfectly during recent trips to Arkansas and Colorado. I was able to forego sunglasses and rely on the tinted face shield instead.
Swapping the new face shield onto the RF-1100 was a snap and the new face shield fits perfectly with no gaps and no wind noise.

MSR Base Layer Long Sleeve Base Layer fabric is 50 lighter than the standard cotton TShirt. After 60 minutes of exercise the Base Layer fabric releases 80 of its moisture after 30 minutes of rest, cotton releases only 40 of its moisture after 30 minutes of rest Made with compression garments that will hold your muscles in place longer and reduce body fatigue. Less chance for pulled and sore muscle tissue. Two different layers of fabric Inner layer contains fibers that will wick the moisture off the skin quicker, creating a cooler inner climate. Once the moisture is separated from your skin the outer layer will evaporate the moisture evenly and fast. Fabric is spun with wicking and antibacterial treatments

I wore the MSR base layer shirt at a track event this weekend. It was very cool and comfortable. The texture and compression features of the fabric are quite nice.
The sleeves were a bit short on me as opposed to the Under Armour shirt that I had been wearing. Where this shirt has sleeves that were an inch too short the Under Armour shirt had sleeves that were an inch or so too long. Given the choice I'd go with the shirt with the short sleeves.
The snug fit was also much nicer under all my gear than something that has lots of extra material around the middle.
I recommend the MSR base layer shirt without reservation.

I purchased the Athos Air Vest and am very impressed by the design and style and the quality of the materials and construction.
At previous track events I had worn the loaner safety vests provided by the organizers. They were cheap $10 or $20 safety vests that didn't fit particularly well, had lousy straps, and had essentially seen better days. I decided to buy my own vest that would fit better over my one-piece suit. The size X-Large fit perfectly over my Rev'It Stingray in a size 54.
The vest is actually a very attractive lime green color, has Scotchlite reflective tape incorporated front and rear and is very form fitting.
It'll be great both on and off the track and will probably be used more often than I expected on the street.
It was worth buying a more expensive vest and I recommend it without reservation.

I bought a couple pair of Aggressor briefs for track day riding and had a chance to try them last weekend. They were nicer and even more comfortable than I expected them to be. I washed them last night and they came through the wash just fine. I'm sure I'll be wearing these more often than I originally planned.
I would recommend them without reservation.

Sports design and safety matched with elevated comfort levels are the concepts at the heart of the new Portland 2 jacket developed for use in the warmer months thanks to the air inlets in Boomerang mesh and the built-in Shield Air G2 back protector, which together with the removable composite protectors ensures safety in case of fall. The ergonomic design is the result of construction in stretch Mugello fabric that guarantees a constantly tight fit and the possibility to fasten the jacket to the pants by zipper. The liner has been provided with silver ion treatment to keep hygiene levels constantly high. Protection From Shock Removable composite protectors certified to EN 1621.1/97 Standard. Includes Shield Air G2 back protector certified to EN 1621.2/2003 Standard(Lev. 1). Abrasion And Tear Resistance Mugello fabric. Boomerang mesh inserts. Ergonomics Adjustment strap on neck. Wrist adjustement. Waist adjustment. Jacket-trousers fastening system. Temperature Regulation Nanofeel liner with Silver ion treatment. Air vents. External fabric with water resistance treatment. Other Features Reflective inserts. 2 outside pockets. Internal pocket. NOTE Dainese made a change in production the zippers / buttons as pictured are red anodized. However, when the jacket went into production it was produced with black zippers / button pulls, so the pictures / video are inaccurate in this respect.

Finally had the chance to wear the Portland 2 jacket on the bike. It's been siting in the closet for a long, long time.
The jacket is everything I expected it to be. Stylish, comfortable (even in heat and humidity#, and protective.
Dainese products in general have some very nice features #e.g. high quality zippers and snaps and a nice mix of fabrics, etc.); the Portland 2 is no exception.
In my experience you can buy Dainese products with confidence.

I received the Avro D-Dry jacket last week. It fits the same as my other size 50 jacket from Dainese; so sizing appears to be consistent across these two components of the Dainese product line.
The styling and colors of the red/white/black jacket are terrific. The jacket shows great attention to detail and the jacket has great inherent features.
The only thing I'm not crazy about from a design perspective is the tall Idra collar. But having said that the purpose of the Idra collar isn't style - it's functionality. It's intended to keep wind and water off the throat area and it appears it's likely to do that quite well.
The jacket was purchased as a Spring/Fall jacket that would serve as a complement to my Summer jacket. By the time I ordered it and it arrived from Italy the temperatures had already increased to Summer levels so I haven't ridden in the jacket yet. But every indication is that it'll be a great jacket.

I originally ordered the Silverstone t-shirt in a Large. The Revzilla staff suggested I order the t-shirt in an Extra-Large due to the European fit and I changed the order accordingly.
Even in the Extra-Large the t-shirt is tight across the chest and shoulders. So I exchanged the Extra-Large for a 2XL. The 2XL has a bit more room in the shoulders and chest so it's a better fit.
My biggest complaint with the shirt though is how thin the material is. It's not sheer by any means, but it's just a thin, lightweight cotton material.
So although the t-shirt has a lot of style, it's not a shirt that I would recommend.
