Fly Trekker DS Hi-Viz Helmet The Trekker is a new dual sport helmet from FLY Racing. It's crossover design helmet combines the best of MX and Street styling and function to create one of the most versatile helmets on the market. The Trekker is ideal for dual sport and adventure touring and offers the comfort of riding without goggles but when the going gets rough, you can still have the option to flip up or remove the shield and throw on a pair of goggles. Features Advanced Poly Alloy shell construction, combines high-strength poly materials to create a aggressive design that is durable and lightweight Dual-Density EPS Liner helps reduce the shock of impact by creating a more progressive impact absorption zone Unique visor shape allows for use of goggles when the shield is in the open or closed Multi-Position, Ratcheting Face Shield Removable and washable comfort liner and cheek pads help keep the interior of your helmet clean and fresh 16 total vents (8 intake, 8 exhaust) circulate large volume of airflow to help keep your head cool. Adjustable vents include 1 mouthpiece, 2 brow, and 2 rear D.O.T. Approved

Excellent DS helmet for the money. It is light, fits snugly, is comfortable and relatively quiet. The hi-viz color is extremely bright! The shield has lift tabs on left and right so it is easy to raise with either gloved hand, thought the action is notchy and noisy compared to my premium brand DS helmet (that only has a lift tab on the left). Two minor issues. In cold weather the shield fogs up immediately when you are not underway - I remedy this by popping it open before I stop. Once fogged, the right side clears quickly when you get underway, but the left doesn't - maybe my left nostril puts out more vapor? Also, there is a seam in the padding that occasionally and only slightly irritates the skin on my forehead where my hairline is receding. Probably not a problem for younger riders with hair there. All-in-all I am very pleased with this helmet - I use it almost exclusively over the premium one that cost hundreds more.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Well made jacket excellent at keeping the cooler weather out, particularly the tall collar. I've logged about 1000 miles in it - a weekend trip and local commuting - low 30's to high 50's temps. As temp goes up, open the collar and the vents (and keep the bike rolling). Good storage in the five pockets. Liner doubles as a casual jacket. Only a couple of minor issues - it's still pretty stiff including the straps on the arms (used to hold open the vents) that fall into the crook of the elbow when you bend your arm restricting movement a little - I expect these will work out as the jacket gets broken in and material and straps soften. If you wear a neck warmer under your collar and you have bigger neck like me, a thick fleece will be a tight squeeze, but a thinner nylon one works well. In any case, the collar works so well you won't need the thicker fleece.
Yes, I recommend this product.
