7mesh Revelation Jacket V2 - Review
Been riding in a 7mesh jacket for 2+ years, daily commuting and multiple crashes on the shore. Thing's light as hell and keeps me bone dry. Recommended

Ryders Roam Glasses with Fyre Tech - Review
@Milko3D: Thanks for the question—it's a big one but we'll give it a go: A whole lot goes into designing a pair of effective riding glasses. Fitting a wide range of faces is one of the biggest factors. They obviously have to be stable and comfortable but they also have to be the proper shape, size and fit for good airflow at a variety of speeds. The design also has to accommodate different helmet retention systems—and there are lots of them. Most premium sport brands primarily use polycarbonate as their lens material, despite the trademarked names that they've given to the material to make it look proprietary. Polycarbonate is extremely shatter resistant, inherently 100% UV protective, and can be formed and finished to provide excellent optical clarity and minimal distortion. That said, there are big differences between the lowest and highest quality polycarbonate lenses. Manufacturing and finishing methods can result in very different quality lenses despite them being made of the same material. Aside from the FYRE lenses, which are NXT, Ryders uses premium polycarbonate lenses throughout our line. These lenses are finished with the best scratch-resistant coatings available and they do not wear off for the life of the glasses if they are properly cared for. Calling them 'coatings' makes them sound temporary but they are in fact harder than the lens material itself (that's why they're more scratch resistant, and hydrophobic, than the untreated lens) and they are permanently bonded to the lens. Our FYRE lenses are NXT. These are a step up from polycarbonate and the best lenses for sport use, offering all of the same impact and UV protection as polycarbonate, but NXT is 10% lighter weight and has an optical clarity that's a lot closer to that of glass lenses. Glass lenses offer the best optics but are very heavy and hazardous when impacted, so they're not good for sport use. There are only a handful of brands that use NXT for their lenses, and the big brand that we all knOw is not one of them. As far as care goes, if you're going to wipe a lens, you should always use a clean cloth, preferably microfibre, and make sure that there is no grit present. If there's any risk of grit, you should wash the lenses. A rinse is often fine, but if you want to give them a good cleaning, use a mild soap and rinse thoroughly. To maintain the best performance, our antiFOG lenses should be washed and air dried after each use. This ensures that there are no oils or other contaminants that can clog up the antiFOG layer, making it less absorbent. The antiFOG coating needs to be able to absorb and disperse vapour to be effective. It should be noted that dirt and grease sitting on the coating will not damage it as it's permanent and will not wear off, but dirt and grease should be removed for best performance. I hope that helps.

Ryders Roam Glasses with Fyre Tech - Review
@TheRaven: True anti-fog coatings are actually the opposite of hydrophobic coatings--they're hydrophilic coatings. They work by absorbing and dispersing water vapour throughout the coating so it can evaporate before it has the chance to condense on the lens as fog. You're correct that fog is simply tiny water droplets, but those droplets aren't heavy enough to be repelled by the hydrophobic coating. Rain-X is a hydrophobic coating and therefore has the reverse effect of a hydrophilic coating. There are a few other sport brands that offer true anti-fog lenses, but Ryders is the only sport brand that offers an anti-fog that passes the military standard, which through independent testing shows 3x the fog resistance of these other brands.
