Good fit, better wind protection

This product works as advertised. It fit my KLR, which I use daily for a 125 mile round trip commute, and it has made a big difference in wind protection over the stock shield. The only drawback is that my master cylinder hits the shield at full lock, but the shield is flexible enough that this does no damage, and it does not prevent me from a full-lock turn. I should also mention that I have risers on my bars. I don't think this would occur with stock bar height. Revzilla, as always, got this to me on time and in great shape.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought these and an Ignition 2 jacket (reviewed separately). I have not tried them with the liner in yet, but wore them with underarmour semi-thermal pants. They have great fit and finish, excellent looks and were very comfortable. I found the front pockets to be usable and deep and at a comfortable location to reach into. The knee armor adjustment worked great, and the pads tucked right into place when I was on the bike. A 52 was the right fit for me at 5-10, 175 pounds, with the following Revzilla-recommended measurements: Waist: 38 (33 jean size) hips 40, inseam 30, outseam 39. Based on these, I originally ordered a short, but returned them and was glad I did because they did not cover my boots low enough when seated on the bike. I think I would have been able to get away with a 50 and had a little more of a super-heroesque fit, but I think I would have sacrificed riding comfort, which was my real motivation for buying these. As it is, the 52 is a little roomy, but they are adjustable enough to take in the waist, and the extra space makes the pockets useful, and layering a possibility. Again, I haven't tried the liner, so that would have filled some space. That being said, I can't speak to water resistance yet, though I do believe these to be more of an inclement spring pant and less fall/winter appropriate, as the mesh lets some air in. I think they are great pants for the money, though, and Revzilla's service was excellent.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Great jacket, but not the all-arounder I had hoped for

The fit and finish of this jacket is excellent. It has some nice features and great style with the deft melding of classical leather looks and modern textile versatility. My criticisms are as follows: 1) With the waterproof membrane removed, the sleeve vents let in too much air, even when zipped. A couple of snaps or a greater overlap on the leather flaps over the zippers would help. I haven't tried it with the membrane, so I can't speak to what a difference that would make. 2) The tighter button on the collar is difficult to snap, and really doesn't seem as if it's meant to be used because it causes the whole jacket to sort of pucker when tightened. 3) With the cold weather vest liner installed, it is difficult to zip the jacket when it is completely open, because the liner and the leather flap at the bottom of the zipper block the view of the zipper opening. 4) I am 5'10", 176 pounds with broad shoulders and a 42" chest. I found that a size 52 works for me, but is a little long in the sleeves for comfort, even accounting for the fact that a riding jacket should have slightly longer sleeves than a casual jacket. I don't think a size smaller would work at all, though. All of this being said, I think this is a good jacket, but not a three season jacket. I live in Northern California, and without the membrane, it was pretty brisk on our foggy coast, even though the temp was only in the high 50's to low 60's. I will adjust this by layering on future rides.
Yes, I recommend this product.
