REV'IT! Airwave Pants The perfect match for the REV'IT! Airwave jacket, these trousers are also great over-pants to wear on top of your jeans during summer commutes. The large air mesh panels allow for maximum cooling, but that's not all they're on and off in seconds, thanks to the long side zippers, which go all the way up to the hip. Reflective panels at the lower legs ensure great visibility at all times. Even more, the Knox Flexiform CE-approved armor is located in height adjustable pockets, allowing you to position the armour just the way you like it. Available in classic black or fresh silver. PROTECTION FEATURES Outer shell polyester 600D , PWRshell 500D stretch , PWRshell mesh , polyester rib Visibility laminated reflection at calf Protection fully perforated EVA foam at hips , Knox Flexiform CE protection at knees ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit tour fit , regular Adjustability adjustment straps at waist , adjustment tab at ankles Ventilation ventilation panels at legs Features easy entrance zipper at calf , adjustable protector pockets , short connection zipper , elastic at waistband Pockets slit pockets

Top quality stitching and fit, Knee protectors stay were they should, long inseam zipper makes take them on and off easy with boots on. I have a 35-36" waist and the mediums are still big enough to put on over jeans. My inseam is 32" and I bought the tall version and sitting on my GSA the bottom of the Airwaves pants sit at my anklebone, perfect I hate a pant that rides half way up your shin when on the bike. The only thing Revit could improve on is the hip protection I may upgrade to SAS Tech or D3o.
Yes, I recommend this product.

A LOT of glove!!! Took a while to break them in (very tough leather) wore them watching TV and flexed my hands etc to loosen them up. I have a 9 1/2" hand but slightly longer fingers and the Large fits perfectly. They feel a little clammy as soon as you put them on but nothing to bother about. Have ridden in 6 degree C up to 25 degree C this year and found them to be comfortable. I don't think extended riding in summer weather would suit this glove but thats not what they're for, more a spring and fall glove. No rain yet but Gore tex should do its job. Over all I'd buy again.

Did 300 kms in 6 celsius temps with hand warmers on, glove was comfortable not too bulky but sizing is just a bit small. If your at the top end of a glove size go one size bigger. Have not been in rain so I can't attest to thier waterproofness. Overall very pleased with gloves I hope they stretch a bit when broken in.

Tighter fit than my Mag 8 in medium, I wear prescription eyeglasses and the pressure of the helmet against my temples gave me a headache after 20 minutes so I did some tweeking and used 30 lb. fireline to compress the foam padding pressing against the arms of my glasses by sewing it tight to the plastic backing of the cheek pieces. All is good now fit wise but helmet is loud funny thing is it is quieter with the visor open than closed, probably due to the poor fit of the visor to helmet at the pivot points. But for the price I paid for this high vis helmet I wear ear pugs and all is good, hope this helps others in making their decision.
