In our 2012 Touring and Commuter Gear Guide, we take a look at what we think are the top picks for long-distance touring and commuting gear this year. Almost everything featured in this guide has a waterproof breathable element, and everything has a very high degree of protection which is certainly a requirement of the long-distance touring rider and commuter. You'll see a lot of hi-viz in this assortment, as this is an important safety element for many commuters and tourers. From REVIT to Alpinestars to Olympia to Dainese, there is something in this mix for every tourer and commuter out there in warm weather. These are RevZilla's top seven options in this category.
