I wanted a simple smoked visor that helped keep the sun out. This fits the bill perfectly - it's easy to snap on and off and is plenty dark during the day. Sometimes I wish it was a bit darker, but with the sporadic cloud cover here it's great just the way it is! My one complaint is that it's a bit pricey, but that's minor.
Yes, I recommend this product.

AGV K3 Gothic Helmet The K-3 is near the top end of the AGV entry level range. GP-tech lines and Valentino Rossi replica helmet graphics make this the ideal helmet for young riders and fans of the racing world. The only full-face thermoplastic model in the agv range, the K-3 is the perfect choice for riders in search of a safe, high-quality helmet with attractive design at a modest price.The K-3 design is inspired by the latest AGV developments starting from the Stealth, S-4, and Ti-Tech and continuing with the Blade/Blade LX and GP-Tech that have so clearly and distinctive defined the companys style. This makes the helmets immediately recognizable and distinguished from all the other proposals on the market. In the same way, the differences with the helmet that the K-3 has replaced are equally evident. Features Fabrics Dry-Lex with hygienic treatment Inside padding Removable and washable (excluding neckroll) Number of shells 1 shell size Retention System Double-D ring Shell Painted HIR-TH (high resistant thermoplastic) resin Shield Mechanism Perimetrical visor seal, XQRS (Extra Quick Release System) - shield replacement without tools in few seconds Ventilation System Front air intakes and rear extractors Note Helmet comes with clear shield, tinted shield available for purchase separately.

My goals for a helmet were simple: it had to be reasonably inexpensive and it needed to be visible with an interesting design. This helmet fulfills those needs flawlessly. For the features and the fantastic design, this helmet cannot be beat. It's lightweight and comfortable, though the ventilation seems about average. I have no issues with the chinguard falling off like other reviewers, and both the straps and the helmet liner feel superb.
I have three minor complaints. The first is that the visor doesn't feel very sturdy. Raising it by the tab makes it feel as though only one side of the helmet is hinging properly - though the hinges themselves seem perfectly fine. Second is that though the visor doesn't fog up, it does gather condensation which can make riding a blur (literally). Third, the images on the web make the helmet's accent color look yellow (and I'm viewing on a color managed monitor). In person however, the "yellow" is much closer to a safety yellow/green than anything else. Good for safety, but doesn't match my bike. Minor issues, but a few issues nonetheless.
All-in-all this helmet is a great buy and I would definitely recommend it!
Yes, I recommend this product.

As everyone says, the jacket is very stylish. It's a little short (as a lot of motorcycle jackets tend to be), but otherwise looks very slick. In the brief time I've owned the jacket, I've taken it on rides in both thirty degree weather and in heavy rain. I've always stayed warm and dry when wearing it. I'm 5'10" ~195 lbs and wear an XL. My only real complaints are that the inner zipper (for the waterproof flap) is not very sturdy and the back protector is nearly useless. Other than that, this is a great jacket that should last me quite a while.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Like the poster below, I had these gloves for about a week before they started to fall apart. I had maybe ridden ten miles before the wrist strap started separating from the rest of the glove. The style is nice, they have a good fit, and they are reasonably well-ventilated, but they seem to be of quite poor quality.
No, I do not recommend this product.
