Most of their items run on the small size, but Revzilla can help you with sizing. For reference, I am 6' ft tall with a 31 waist and I wear a Large in all of their products except for the Axis pants.

As stated above, KLIM is a nice option also if you have the coin. My wife would have my nuts on a mantle if I bought a $1k jacket
Thanks for the review. I really like the look of the revit gear and if it's also well built and has a good fit it seems like the way to go. I didn't like Klim gear (didn't know it was that expensive) and BMW gear is too expensive.

Revit is not cheap either, but at some point you have to realize that you will pay for the good stuff. The Sand and the Cayenne Pro are awesome. The new Gore-Tex stuff is put out there to compete with other higher end products from Klim in my mind so just decided what you need.

I found the Tornado jacket & pant for $560 and it seems like the right gear for our warm weather (it has removable liners). It isn't cheap but it's much less than similar BMW gear. I need to start riding with ATGATT

I'm into a brand new Latitude suit (Jacket and Pant) for $750 after I worked some magic with my stealer on the price. That is some trick 3 season gear for not much more than what you paid for your single-season kit.

The deals are out there but you gotta know where to look and be willing to work for them.

Awesome looking bike. Just curious, who makes the yellow headlight guard?

The Tornado is supposed to be a 3-season suit. Is it or not? Not that I will ever wear the liners in Panama, but who knows where I'll be in the next 2-3 years...

Maybe you should start a new thread on this topic and let this one be about GS 1200's.

One of the few pix of me on Bikeopotamus....Usually I'm the one taking the snaps! 16,000 miles since April. I could not be happier...this is easily the best Beemer I've ever owned, and I've most most of the models since 1998!
