    Yeah, hind sight is 20/20. My Olympia Stealth suit fit perfectly other than the knee armor pointing at the gas tank. I wasn't so much worried about voiding the warranty as having gear that fit so I just relocated the the knee pad pockets and went on my merry way. Perhaps at this stage in the game this would be an option for your better half too.

    Ali and revzilla have helped us find a solution that looks promising. It will be 2 weeks before we will know for sure. Thanks to Ali for helping.

    Hey Bloodline,
    Please let me know how the replacement armor works. I hope it turns out to be a viable solution.

    I am looking for some rider feedback on the AlpineStar Durban Pants. I have been and checked them out in the flesh and they look great. In a different league to my Revit Dakar pants, which have started separating in the Knee seam after just under 2 years moderate use.
    The main concern I have with the AlpineStars is the vent in the knee. Ok in hot weather but how about when the temps drop. Does fitting the liner negate the effect of air flowing up the leg all the time. With a zipper setup, airflow can be regulated.
    Looking forward to hearing from someone who has used them
    Cheers Phil

    I'm THRILLED with my experiences so far with revzilla! They don't mess around getting products out the door, the website is amazing, and the exchange process is like butter. I just hope they continue expanding and carrying more inventory! This is currently my second favorite web retailer of any kind behind amazon(prime).

    The videos can be a great help and they really sold my last helmet purchase. Looking forward to checking out the S. Philly showroom.

    Hi Greg,

    The pants of all 3 oufits fit similar. They all have non-removable waterproofing and only have a removable thermal liner. The Legacy may seem slightly heavier, as the Gore-Tex membrane is floating between the outer shell and inner lining whereas the Everest and Horizon have bonded waterproof membranes to the outer shell.
    The Everest Jacket is slightly more boxy and shorter in the waist than the Legacy and the Horizon.

    Did you have something more specific about their fit we might be able to address?
    Cheers,

    Thanks, bit of a story, I wear an Offtrack Jacket (XXL) and BMW rallye 2 pants (56). I just managed to score a Turbine Jacket (56) & Pants(54) (both with liners) here in Oz on runout sale for $AUS400 for both !!!!.

    Seeing I got such a bargain for some warmish weather riding gear Im thinking of ditching my offtrack and rallye 2's and getting some riding gear for winter that has a waterproof shell rather than a detachable liner.

    The Oz importer has a rather od mix of stuff, horizon jacket but not pants , no Legacy or Everest , http://www.revitaustralia.com.au/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=20

    Im gathering info on fit etc before I order from OS, I like the look of the Horizon stuff having seen the jacket (XXL fits well) , not sure if its cold enough here in Oz to need the everest , have never seen a legacy , any thoughts on the merits of the 3 ?? .

    While I have your ear , I have a pair of the dirt gloves (XL) love em !!!. Im also looking for some winter gloves but hate bulky / thick ones. Any suggestions from the Revit line ?? , I'd happily sacrifice some warmth for less bulk.

    thanks for your time

    Hey Revzilla Crew,
    Just tried to do an online purchase of the Icon Hi-Viz vest ($60) & wanted to do a Paypal payment. I thought this was a free shipping item, but there was always a $40,xx shipping charge via USPS to Ontario. Order was cancelled. Must I call in for this? :ear

    Howdy! Have a question for you about boots...

    For comfort, protection, and durability would you go for the Fox F3R or the TCX Pro 1.1? :ear

    Greetings,

    I am looking at purchasing a Badland pro jacket size XL and the website shows out of stock, do you know when the jacket will be available again?

    Hi Greg,
    I think the Everest jacket might be overkill for the needs you've described, which narrows the choices to the Horizon and the Legacy. The Horizon and Legacy fit similar, but the Legacy does have the floating Gore Tex membrane, which takes up some space in the jacket. The Gore-Tex membrane does a better job at breathing in hot weather, but the Horizon has direct venting. As they don't make a ladies version of the Horizon, I can not personally comment in it's performance, but they've been received quite well so far.
    The Off Track Jacket has a slimmer cut that anything being produced by REV'IT! these days. Unfortunately, it seems they've made some drastic changes to their fitting shape, and we are finding the 2012 collection to fit considerably larger than the Off Track, originally introduced in 2007.
    If you are only planning on using the set up for winter use, I would opt for the Legacy set up over the Horizon, since Gore-Tex is the best of the best offered when it comes to wet weather use. It is slightly longer than your Off Track, but likely not more than 2 inches. If you have tried on the Horizon in 2XL, then I would recommend the same size in the Legacy.
    As for gloves, you might like the Phantom GTX glove from REV'IT! It's also a Gore-Tex glove that uses X-tra fit technology, has a slim fit and is not bulky. There is no insulation in this glove, but if you are looking for feel over warmth, this is the clear winner.
    Cheers,
    Ali

    Hi Enkil,

    The Sand offers great flexibility and preforms decent in hot weather. The Horizon has the fixed waterproofing and will be warmer in hot conditions, even with the chest vents open. If you are looking for a jacket for cooler weather or don't want to be bothered with putting waterproof liners in, then the Horizon is a good option.

    Cheers,
    Ali
