So, I bought this jacket to use on my trip around Scotland. During the 1900 mile ride, we had torrential rain, hail, snow flurries, near freezing temps up to temps in the 80's. The jacket performed excellently. It was comfortable, fit well, and the offset zippers did an amazing job of blocking wind. I would only ask for a slightly higher collar for cold riding, however it was just fine when I wore my Buff. The sleeves and waist sealed well. I had some dampness around my wrists, but only after over 4 hours of torrential rain at highway speeds. I cannot complain about any of the function of the jacket. The pockets are great, especially the fleece handwarmer pockets. (Just don't forget to zip them closed when it rains...) This jacket is not a hot weather jacket, but it doesn't claim to be. For any other situation that doesn't require heated gear, this jacket is perfect. I rode my motorcycle nearly to the arctic circle on the Northern Scottish Isles with no problems.

I set up the dual pack on my wife and my helmets in about 30 minutes, downloaded the new bluetooth ornate in about another 30, and was using them on the bike! The sound is great, the buttons are instinctive, and the helmet speakers are okay. My helmet does not seal really well, so i bought the earbud adapter and have been happy with that.

This is an abbreviated review, because my wife has not worn the pants much, but so far they appear to be good quality. She did take out the hip pads as they were pretty bulky. These do seam to fit slightly large, or true to size as an overpant. They fit well and look good with her Firstgear jacket. Will provide a more in-depth review after we return from our Scotland trip...
Yes, I recommend this product.

I have only worn these pants a few times at this point, so I cannot speak about durability, although they look well built. By the way, thanks Revzilla for the amazingly quick shipping...
These pants fit like a true-to-size, if not slightly baggy pant. I would order a size larger to wear as an overpant. The lining is VERY warm. I do worry slightly about the zipper, which has no gator, for its waterproof ability. The knee armor is very comfortable comparable to other pants I have owned. These are not very bulky at all, and wear well off of the bike. I will come back and edit my review after I have taken these around Scotland this May. So far, I am very impressed with the quality and cut of the pants.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I have recently purchased these gloves, so I have not tested them thoroughly, but they have performed well so far. I tested them out on a morning commute at 35 degrees, and my hands were bearably warm. (I am not sure that anything short of a large gauntlet or heated glove will keep you totally warm at 35 degrees and 55 mph.) My only complaint is the rigid knuckle guard rubs on the top of my throttle hand some after a little while. This may be just a sport bike problem, because of the rider position. I have not tried them on my cruiser yet. The gloves fit slightly small. I wear Lg in some, and XL in others, and the XL was definitely right for me. Overall, these are great gloves, and do what they are designed for. They are a lot less bulky than many of the other winter gloves, and I love having a warm glove without a huge gauntlet. (The cuff mates up with my Technic Sprint jacket perfectly) There is room enough to wear a small glove liner underneath if you really want to be warm.
Yes, I recommend this product.
