(MY) Rev-It Off Track jacket and Dakar pants

I got my Rev-It Off Track jacket and Dakar pants yesterday from Adventure BMW in Chesapeake, VA. A very nice setup, if anybody has any questions fire away. I will be doing a write-up soon giving all the details and stuff like that. Well here is a quick picture I took last night.

I've got a quick question, how well do you think this setup will vent in the summer? Are those mesh panels on the front upper chest area? I'm in the market for a DS jacket and the Off-Track is on my short list, but I live in Florida so I need something that's good for hot weather.

Venting-The mesh panels has 2 zippers the one closest to center is access to the mesh fronted pocket. The zipper close to the armpit is the one that vents to the inside of the jacket. The sleeves have a zip open vent on the topside of each forearm and the panels under each armpit( the orange ones) come out fully to expose a full mesh panel. the panels can be stored in the pockets. The pants have zipperd vents on top of the thighs.

I will be taking full pictures with all features shown in detail as soon as i get a little time.

This is what I did:
Went to the Rev-it website,
The catalog has the sizing chart is in the back.
Used the backside of my wifes coth measuringtape that had the metic numbers on it and compared them to the chart (I had 56R)
Called AAron at Revit and told him my #'s and he told me what would work for me as this gear is a l, xl, xxl, xyl sizing not number sizing.

I am 5-11, 180lbs, 35 waist, 32 inseam, wear a size 44R flight suit. I wanted a little bit of extra room for street clothes underneath and we came up with a size XXL. i think an XL would have been fine but I would have been on the upper range for that one. XXL is feeling pretty good. ALOT BETTER THAN 2PC Aerostich Roadcrafter.

I can fit my Aerostich CBT boots just fine too.

I will take photos soon.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Kurt--How about on the pants. I am almost exactly your demensions and I had my dealer order an XL on the jacket. Looks like the fit on yours is perfect.

Rev'it's website says the outer shell is "heavy Kodra". Anyone have any idea what that is? How the abrasion resistance would be to, say, BMW rallye 2?

as far as the rallye 2, I am unsure.

I would compare it to the main portion of the Aerostich suit, not the shoulder/elbow/knee portion.

How does it compare to the Aerostich in regards to protection, quality, etc.

Protection- I would give the nod to REV-IT. It has a hard shell CE approved elbow, shoulder, knee protection. Back pad is foam type stuff. Hips are temperfoam.

Quaility- about the same- but a lot more sewing has to be done with the REV-It since it has 2 liners.

The part I hated about my stich was the leaky crotch and no front venting for the humid summers. the stich sucked in traffic or low speeds.
