Anthony, I am interested in a pair of the klim Overland Pant. On revzilla.com it has a "pre-order" on the description. How do I go about this?

I had the Traverse pant (still wear the jacket that I love) but didn't like the "dirt bike" fit. I believe the Overland is just the ticket.

I wear a 36w in jeans (ahhum, a little snug) so would the 36w in the Overland be my best bet? I will not wear any jeans or pant under the Overland, just my LDComfort riding shorts so I am looking for a "jeans" type of fit.
How soon will they be released, or order-able?

By the way the Wife is ordering a Ladies Ventura (silver&blue) jacket and pant combo. She will be posting a few questions about sizing before ordering.

I hate to ask, but I must. Are there any ADV member discounts?

Thanks for your help

-Ron

The cost of losing weight

Well after 4 months of working out and dieting hard my gear is falling off me. I have a pair of Cayanne Pro pants 2XL Long. With all the liners in there are lose everywhere except in the upper leg. There are just right there. The waist is wayyyy too big for me now. Could I fit into XL Defender Long pants? I'm almost into 34x34 jeans and plan to lose more weight. I'm into 36 right now.

Hey guys, I'm still looking . . . . . . .



I noticed the REVIT Contra. It apparently is a UK market item. Any information / opinion on this one?

Pants

Anthony

A couple of years ago we had a discussion on this thread for new gear. I wound up buying Firstgear TPG jacket and pants. Turned out to be good entry level gear and I have been happy with it. Since then I have completed a couple of large trips (3 mos in Mexico and 6 mos to South America) and the gear seemed to work well. This isnít top quality stuff and I didnít expect it to last forever. The pants are now pretty well done and Iím now looking for better quality replacement pants.

I really liked not having to use rain liners or rain pants but I did sweat a lot in warmer weather. Thinking I should step up to a GoreTex pant.

So, Iíve narrowed it down to the Klim Badlands Pro pants (donít see a lot of difference with the Adventure Rally for $200 more) and the REVíIT GTX pants. The Firstgear TPG jacket is still fine and Iíll look at upgrading that later on.

After studying the info on your website, it really looks like the two pants are very similar. The Klim piece may have a slight advantage in the heat with the front and back vents (even though your website rates the REVíIT piece as having better ventilation) and Iím guessing they would be similar in cold weather, depending on base layers used.

Your recommendation would be appreciated. By the way, I am a 36Ē waist and 32Ē inseam. My TPG is a 36. I would assume the Klim size would be a 36 Reg and REVíIT size would be Large Reg

Thanks
Steve

The advantage of something like Cordura is that there is information on the actual test results for abrasion testing on the net so you know what your getting. I've since worked out that Powershell is a polyamide and should be OK but without test result numbers still have concerns in the back of my mind - It's hard to know where marketing hype begins and reality ends.
+1. I have looked for information about fabric materials on several manufacturers' websites and couldn't find much. I, too, came to the conclusion that whenever fabrics are called some fantasy name like Mugello, Titanium, Power whatever, it must be some sort of polyester. Otherwise, why are manufacturers not providing more information including test data if these fabrics are so great? Providing no information is certainly not building consumer confidence.

Convert a Medium Schuberth C3 to a Large?

Anthony & Company, I really appreciate, as I'm sure many here do, your contribution to the collective good of this motorcycling community. Kudos!

To elaborate on my question in the title... I was told by an apparently qualified Helmet rep that you could convert a size Medium Schuberth to a size Large by swapping out the fabric liner and both cheek pads to the large size. While I was able to confirm both the Medium and the Large share the same shell, I wasn't able to determine if the interior styrofoam requires being swapped and if it does, can that be done after it leaves the factory?

Thanks for your time!

Amazing thread on REV'IT gear. A few questions for Anthony or anyone with experience with this gear...

I commute in San Diego and am looking for a new set of year-round gear. I'm leaning toward the Horizon jacket but am not sure what to do about pants. I leave early in the morning (6:15am) and it can be in the 40s (occasionally high 30s) and misty/foggy. By the afternoon it can be in the 70s or higher. It rains pretty rarely here so waterproofing is not a huge priority. I'm leaning toward the Horizon jacket but if something else would be better suited for the conditions I ride in, I'll take suggestions.

I've been trying to decide between one pant to do it all-- the Defender-- or the Legacy paired with the Airwave pants for warmer days. Abrasion resistance is a priority, as is the highest-quality armor. The reason I'd considered the Defender is that with the liners removed and vents open, it seems like it might not be as hot. That combined with the SAS-TEC armor seemed like a good combo. That said, I don't want to be too hot in the Defender pants if I'd be better served by two pairs rather than one. I'd appreciate any advice.

One more question about colors: is the silver in the Defender the same light grey as is used in the Horizon jacket? The colors look slightly different on the site and I can't tell and wouldn't want them to be close enough but not the same if I paired them.

One more question-- hopefully someone will see these!

I'm really looking for abrasion resistance in the pants. There's a site in Germany that has some old-new stock of the Turbine pants. How did those fit size-wise? According to the chart I'm a 50-Long and have seen conflicting reports on how those fit. Obviously, since I'd be ordering from overseas I'm concerned about sending them back. Are there any current REV'IT pants that fit like the old Turbine?

Also, do the Tornado pants have comparable abrasion protection to the old Turbine pants? If not, which of the current REV'IT mesh pants have comparable abrasion resistance?

Hi Ken,

The REV'IT! Contra Glove is not imported into the US. Sorry for the lengthy delay in response. For some reason I haven't been getting notifications on new entries to this thread.
Your timing is pretty good if you're still in search of a nice REV'IT! Winter glove, as the REV'IT! Orion Glove is now on sale for 35% off. Check it out at this link.

Cheers,
Ali

Hey Rex,

The TPG is good gear, but Gore-Tex is definitely better. We have a great sale going on right now on the REV'IT! Everest Jacket and Pants at 35% off. They are also Gore-Tex Pro Shell like the Klim Badlands set up. I will say, the Klim Badlands pants are better suited for more true ADV / Enduro riding and get the slight advantage on airflow, where the REV'IT! Evererst pant is slightly more touring skewed. With the sale on the REV'IT! Gear right now, it's tough to ignore. Gore-Tex Gear rarely goes on sale.

For the best advice on fit, I suggest giving our Gear Geeks a call. To find the proper fit in REV'IT! pants, we will need actual measurements, not jean sizes.

Cheers,
Ali

Hi Burgh'r Boy,

I had to call Schuberth on this one, but I was able to get confirmation directly form Schuberth North America, that yes, you can make your Medium C3 into a size Large by swapping liners.
The C3 uses 2 shell sizes and 4 EPS liners to make up their size range. In this particular case, the Medium and Large share both shell and EPS liner sizes and only the soft liner components differentiate the 2 sizes.
As far as messing with the EPS liner, this is something we would not recommend ever touching (and irrelevant in this case).

Cheers Big Ears,
Ali

I've just got a pair of 50 long Tornado pants from that very store. If it's any help, I'm 6'3", about 90kg a 33in waist and leg and they fit me absolutely spot on. Went out in them yesterday for the first time and was lovely and comfy in the 28įC sunshine. Also got a Levante jacket in XL which also fits me just right and was likewise very nice in the warm weather.

Thanks for the reply. What I'm really looking for is a Gore Tex glove I can wear in the rain in the warmer months. As I mentioned, I already have and love the Dirt and the Alaska. I noticed the Held Air N Dry but I think that's more than I need and more than I wanted to spend. I just want a simple Gore Tex glove with no thermal insulation and reasonable crash protection.

Revit Fluid cooling neck thoughts

Howdy,

Love the Revit gear. I know there are other alternatives available but I am curious to see if anyone is currently using the Revit Fluid cooling neck. Thanks for any replies.

Hey Ken,

An easy way to shop your options is to put "Xtrafit" as a keyword in the search box on our website. Xtrafit (if you are not already familiar) is a Gore-Tex technology that bonds the Gore-Tex membrane to the outer shell of the glove for excellent grip feel and liners that won't pull out with your hand. Xtrafit, in nearly all cases, is used on non-insulated gloves.
Dainese, Rukka, Alpinestars, and REV'IT! all have Gore-Tex Xtrafit options, but I will warn you, they are all a premium price point.

One other option is the REV'IT! Summit H2O glove, that is a waterproof glove that is not insulated. The Summit glove uses similar technology to Xtrafit that REV'IT! "borrowed" from Gore in the construction of this glove. The Summit H2O is also much more affordable.

If you have more questions, don't forget our team of Gear Geeks is here to help.

Cheers,
Ali
