I live in Hawaii (don't be jealous!) and it rains a lot, so I got these to upgrade from an old RevIt suit I had. The orange is semaphore/construction orange, so the HIVIZ factor is there, but there's no real protection. They say this is designed to be a pullover your normal gear. I bought medium (that's my size). I don't usually wear any riding gear going to/from work, just my uniform. This fits well over my uniform, but if you wear riding gear, I would highly recommend that you go up a size to ensure it's not too tight. Highly recommend for rainy weather. We have had monsoon rains lately and I have been nice/dry and highly visible to ALL on the road.

I live in Hawaii (don't be jealous) and have to ride in the rain a lot. I got these because I was tired of having my hands get soaked in my leather gloves. These gloves fit nicely, are very sharp looking, and they amazingly match my Shoei helmet (not intended!). Listen to the review...I had to change size a little. I wear a large in gloves and ordered a 10...they fit perfectly. A little snug at first, but then they have now molded well to my hands. I love these things. They don't give any air flow, but your hands do vent out (Gore-tex and all). Highly recommend if you are in a climate that is hot and where it rains a lot!

Love this pack...perfect for putting lunch bag and large plastic water bottle, plus wet suit in for my commute to/from work in Hawaii. Outside storage pocket items "can" get wet if you are caught in a heave downpour, but other than that I have no complaints. The zippers are very well sealed, and no problem after using for several months. Highly recommend this, or a larger Kriega if you need more storage space.

Shoei Qwest Overt Helmet The Shoei Qwest Motorcycle Helmet was built with a focus on minimizing helmet weight, optimizing fit for comfort and protection and lowering noise levels to bring a new level of comfort to touring helmets. Featuring a slightly round oval internal shape, the Qwest helmet is manufactured with 4 individual shell sizes to keep the helmet as low-profile as possible. The smaller the helmet shell, the lighter the helmet weight. The Shoei Qwest Helmet also uses the Shoei's CW-1 visor technology with the Q.R.S.A system. This system guarantees a tight seal at the faceshield by pulling the shield back to contact the opening seal evenly. The Qwest also touts an extra-wide viewport for additional peripheral vision so you can more easily take in the world around you. Aerodynamic Shell Design Aerodynamic properties are maximized through extensive wind tunnel and feedback from professional riders Dual-Layer EPS liner enhances impact absorption and ventilation Four shell and six EPS liner sizes increase fit options that help to comfortably fit most head sizes Molded air spoiler reduces drag and lift as well as diminishes weight pressure on the neck while riding at high speeds Ventilation System Upper Air Intake Vent is positioned to maximize air volume into the helmet interior Large upper intake vent positioned to maximize performance in high wind conditions Easy to operate large lower intake vent Lower air intake/defroster vent reduces shield fogging and increases ventilation Rear/neck outlets allow for effective air exhaust Breath guard and chin curtain are included Lightweight Advanced Integrated Matrix Plus (AIM+) High performance fiber materials are combined with extremely elastic organic fibers to create a shell structure that is ultra lightweight, rigid and resilient Interior 3D center pad and multi-layered, polyurethane foam cheek pads Cheek pads are replaceable or removable for maintenance Eyeglass-compatible interior Standard chin strap clip neatly secures chin strap CW-1 Shield and Q.R.S.A. System Q.R.S.A. (Quick-Release Self-Adjusting) base plate allows for tool-less shield removal and installation Spring-loaded base plate pulls the shield back to contact the window beading evenly and ensures a proper seal Scratch-resistant coating 99.9 protection from harmful UV A and B rays Optional, CWF-1 two-dimensional Pinlock equipped racing shields with tear-off posts are available (sold separately) Optional, CW-1 Pinlock prepared shields are available to accommodate Pinlock Fog Free Inserts (sold separately) The CW-1, three-dimensionally curved shield is both wider and taller than the CX-1V it replaces A pre-set lever can easily lock the shield in place to prevent the shield from opening unexpectedly, as well as prop the shield open to increase airflow Additional Features Construction AIM+ (Advanced Integrated Matrix Plus Multi Fiber) Weight 3.644 lbs / 1,653 grams (approx, for Size Medium) Standards Snell-M2010, DOT Note Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States

This jacket fits well and looks sharp. Hats off to the Revzilla team for their great help in selecting the right size for me. So far, I have used this jacket for freeway commutes up I-95 in the DC area during the early spring, and with the liner in, the jacket keeps me nice and warm on my morning commute when it's about 40 degrees outside. Take out the liner in the afternoon, and the airflow is great. You almost don't notice you're wearing a jacket. The High-Viz color is very bright--no missing the jacket, and the Knox back pad slides right in for extra protection. The only thing slightly weird about this jacket is that it zips up on the left hand side...at first I thought I had accidentally ordered a women's model, but no...those European men must have left-side zippers...takes a little getting used to, but it's not that big of a deal. BUY THIS JACKET. Thanks Revzilla!

 Icon Alliance Shakki Helmet
Icon Alliance Shakki Helmet
Icon Alliance Shakki Helmet So 'Shakki' doesn't actually mean anything. It's merely an English ear trying to describe the sound of a Japanese tattoo being applied. As the needles are pulled from the skin they make a sound that resembles 'shakki'. Of course we only know this through the internet. The closest we've been to a Japanese tattoo is the really cool Kanji symbol for 'Loyalty' inked on the side of our neck. Our advise If you want wild graphics reminiscent of classical Japanese art minus the elegant simplicity, the Icon Alliance Shakki Helmet can bridge that desire for refined brushwork mised with mayhem - all without having to find out if needles pulled from your skin make any noise. All World Standard, meets or exceeds the following DOT DMVSS 218(US), ECE 22-05(Europe), SAI AS1698 (Australia) SG (Japan) safety and testing standards. Does not ship with SAI or SG certification stickers unless purchased from an authorized dealer in that country Wind tunnel tested and refined Molded twin channel supervent for increased cooling Rear exhaust ports prevent heat buildup Removable molded breath deflector reduces shield fogging Injection molded polycarbonate shell for strength Long oval headform Chin venting system reduces shield fogging Fully removable/washable Hydradry interior Prolock shield locking system

This is my second Icon Alliance helmet and it does not disappoint. The helmet itself fits firmly and is very comfortable. It provides great venting, especially in warm weather with easily accessible vent switches on the chin and on top of the helmet. Besides the quality of the fit, you can't argue that the artwork on the helmet is one of the most beautiful on the market...it's definitely a head turner...now you too can have the beauty of a Japanese Yakuza tattoo without making mom mad!
