This is a big upgrade in the comfort department for Dainese back protectors. All the stretch and movement allows for a great wearing protector that doesn't feel like a stiff board on your back.
However, it fails in one crucial aspect. Spinal hyperextension. If you take this product and bend it backwards, it gives no appreciable resistance. I see this as an important factor in protecting your back and spine. Lacking this, it provides nothing more than shock absorption.
I suggest a Dainese Wave G instead.

If the stiffness of Dainese back protectors bother you than this is definitely the upgrade for you. While I personally never had an issue with the stiffer armors, this guy is definitely more comfortable.
The only gripe I have with it is that it shifts around a bit more than Dainese's armor. Since it's not shape formed, I'm not confident it's always sitting in the right spot.

Dainese Air-Frame Textile Jacket Focus Continued comfort under changing weather conditions with excellent ventilation is hard to achieve in a ventilated jacket because whenever the temperature drops, the wearer immediately feels cold. In this case, the Dainese Air Frame offers the best solution by combining the ventilation achieved by ample inserts in mesh with protection against cold air offered by a remarkably lightweight windcheating insert. Provided with ample adjustment possibilities, jacket-pants fastening zip, homologated protectors and a pocket for a G-type back protector, this versatile jacket also comes in a ladies version. Features Removable composite protectors certified to EN 1621.1/97 Standard Boomerang fabric Quick Dry fabric Mesh fabric. Neck adjustment Waist adjustment Wrist adjustment Sleeve volume adjustment Jacket-trousers fastening system Removable wind-breaker liner Sanitized lining Pocket for Dainese Wave G1 and G2 Reflective inserts 2 outside pockets Internal pocket

It's light, it's comfortable and it moves a TON of air. Wish they made white panels on the shoulder/backs to combat the summer sun.
The only gripe I have is that there's no lower back extension on this jacket. The 360 zip is higher up because of it and when joined together, it ends up tugging on your shoulders and pulling your pants up.
If you have a long torso and like riding with the 360 zipped up, I would try both pieces on together to see how it wears on you.

My previous mesh jacket was an Air Frame, and while it moved a ton of air it lacked comfort features. It had no extended back so the 360 zip was too high for anyone with a slightly long torso, pulling either the jacket down or your pants up beyond comfort. This jacket remedies that. It's also got a ton of stretch panels to keep you as comfortable as possible in the summer heat. One less thing to distract you from your riding.

I use this for my 20mi commute into work year round. Works great, very convenient, no installation required. just grab and go. The magnets coupled with the rubber bottom keeps the bag in place, will not slide or come loose. I've had it overfilled (bulging) with gopro's and clothes and it still did not budge.
It also has a strap that can convert the bag into a single strap backpack so you can easily carry it around.
One thing you do have to keep in mind is to never put the contact side of that bag down on the ground, if you do, make sure you dust it off thoroughly unless you like your tank full of scratches.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I have both the SAI max vision pinlock and this guy. The pinlock pins are tiny plastic screws that are finicky and the seal sometimes break if they're not done up correctly. This is a much better solution.
Note: It's a bit hard to close/lock down at first because of the upper seal but you get used to it.
It does still fog up a little bit right by the breath guard area when you're stopped at a stop light, but my pinlock did the same thing.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Arai RX-Q / Corsair V / Signet-Q Cheekpads Replacement cheek pads for Arai RX-Q, Signet-Q and Corsair V Helmets Arai's truly unique sculpted cheekpad shape cradles the head from underneath for a level of comfort and security that needs to be felt to be believed. With more surface area, it moves away from the typical pressure fit to a more comfort fit based on the design's cradle support. The design was influenced by Arai's F-1 drivers, the most demanding of all for fit. Emergency Cheekpad Release System This now-copied groundbreaking Arai safety innovation was specifically developed to allow easier access to an injured rider by sliding out easily, making helmet removal easier for trained medical personnel Cheek Pad Adjustability A cheek pad feature found only on Arai RX-Q and Signet-Q Helmets is a removable 5MM layer of foam. This allows more room if desired without having to purchase an entirely new cheek pad set. All cheek pads are interchangeable between the different helmet sizes. Remember, if you need more room in the helmet you need to order a smaller (thinner) cheek pad. To make a helmet tighter, you would need to buy a larger (thicker) cheek pad.

My original pads from my XXL Corsair V have compacted enough after a year that my helmet was sliding down, obstructing my upper vision in a sport position.
Got these pads in a thicker size to replace, along with a smaller/thicker comfort liner. So far so good, feels like a brand new helmet.

I ride all year round in the north east. During winter months, it's all commute riding, 20mi round trip daily. I wanted a better solution than a big fluffy winter glove.
I could barely feel these, maybe a slight tingle between my fingers when at a stop light, even when turned up max. It was no different than just wearing my winter gloves. In fact it made it worse because now I have a liner shifting around underneath.
It just wasn't good for me.
No, I do not recommend this product.

 Powerlet rapidFIRe Jacket Liner With Dual Wireless Controller Package
Powerlet rapidFIRe Jacket Liner With Dual Wireless Controller Package
Powerlet Rapidfire Jacket Liner With Dual Wireless Controller Package Powerlet's RapidFIRe Heated Jacket Liner packaged includes the Dual Wireless Remote Heat Controller. Controller receiver is pre-installed and Pre-synced for your convenience. Powerlet's RapidFIRe Heated Jacket Liner with CNC (Carbon Nano Core) heating uses Far Infrared technology to provide fast, deep, soothing warmth. Now the warmest liner on the market at 105 watts! Built in stuff sack and no annoying heating wires of any kind! Stay Warm While Riding Powerlet's 105 watt RapidFIRe heated jacket liners pack down to a very small size to fit on the bike when not in use. Not only the warmest heated clothing available, but ProForm stretch panels also make them the most comfortable. We recommend using the temperature controller with the RapidFIRe 105 watt jacket liners. The RapidFIRe Advantage The most unique feature is the heating system that is incorporated into every liner. Using the latest in Carbon Nanotube technology, Powerlet's Carbon Nano Core panels heat quickly and evenly without the hot spots or long heat times other conventional wired garments require. Additionally, Powerlet is the ONLY manufacturer to offer a dual heat setting that permits you to switch the total consumption to not exceed 60 watts. This means those of you who have bikes or vehicles that do not have the electrical output capacity to power a traditional or competitors liner can rest assured that the RapidFIRe line will get powered without draining your battery and leaving you stranded. Additionally, Powerlet once again incorporated the ProForm stretch panels that provide three key advantages non-binding movement, maximum heat transfer and simple sizing. While all three are very important, maximum heat transfer is perhaps the most important. For maximum heat transfer the heated garments must be close to the body. A long sleeve T-Shirt is recommended under the heated liners. A heavier layer can be worm over the garment. Other heated clothing manufacturers provided many sizes to attempt to create a snug fit. This often leads to a more complicated purchase and the potential improper fit if your weight changes. RapidFIRe 105 Watt Jacket Liner Features Dual Heat 105 / 60 Watt convertibility by a simple cable disconnect Wind and water resistant Polyurethane coated nylon outer shell ProForm stretch panels provide comfort and simple standard sizing Ultra thin design provides comfort and small storage Comfortable heated Polartec fleece collar wicks moisture Zippered pockets manage power cables Handy built in stuff sack allows for storage on the vehicle Unique sleeve finishing reduces bulk around wrists Glove connectors are located at the ends of the sleeves Heated on the front, back, arms and collar - full heat coverage Quick heat time of 20 seconds or less on the jacket liners Designed For A Lifestyle Powerlet designs heated garments for people who rely on their heated clothing for both comfort and safety. Like their customers, they enjoy a lifestyle utilizing convenient modern electronics and wear our heated gear for commutes to work and trips across the country. Built For A Lifetime Powerlet seeks the highest quality materials and craftsmanship. All of their heated clothing products are developed and tested in the USA by people who ride regularly. Quality components and attention to detail ensure Powerlet products resist wear and corrosion to last a lifetime. All Powerlet RapidFIRe heated clothing carries a lifetime warranty on the electrics and a lifetime warranty on manufacturing defects.

I commute daily into Manhattan from Queens, about 20mi round trip. All of my gear are Dainese sportbike gear, so they're snug. I was looking for a solution that'll keep me warm without layering up too much stuff (especially in the arms) underneath. Two midlayers (thinsulate thickness) and a tshirt will be enough to reduce my range of motion in my arms to a uncomfortable level.
While warm, it really wasn't toasty enough to be worth the trouble of setting up and plugging in. The top layer of the jacket doesn't stop the wind well enough for just the heat alone to keep me toasty.
I ended up just going with a Gore windstopper fleece cycling jacket and a thin down vest under my leather. Keeps the wind out, my core toasty and my arms free. I'm much warmer this way than the heated liner.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Ballistic Performance 8 Cell EVO2 Battery The 8 Cell EVO2 model is our primary product. The 8 Cell model will work with everything from 450cc MX bikes to 1000cc multi-cylinder motorcycles. This battery is robust, impact resistant, water resistant, and has more starting punch than 90 of all the powersports lead-acid batteries available. Most motorcycles in this range use an OEM battery that weighs up to 10.7lbs. The 8 Cell Ballistic Performance Components EVO2 Battery weighs a little over 1.5lbs. That is a weight savings of 9.3lbs for less than 160! If your powersports vehicle has a modified motor or operates in extreme conditions then we would recommend upgrading to the 12 Cell for added durability. Dimensions 112MM (L) x 60MM (W) x 103MM (H) Available with the Negative Terminal on the Right or Left Weight 825 grams (1.81 lb) Voltage (Charged) 13.6V Amperage 15 Pbeq A/H Cold Cranking Amps 275 CCA Operating Environment -18C (0F) to 60C (140F) Typical Applications 1000cc and under multi-cylinder motorcycles and 450cc singles. Note Ballistic Batteries may not be a drop in replacement, some modification to battery box, terminals etc may be necessary. See Ballistic / Yuasa Comparison charts below for detailed measurements and weights. Your powersports vehicle is the pinnacle of modern technology. It is made with the latest lightweight, high tech materials to be the most high performance vehicle on the road, lake, track or trail. You have modified your powersports vehicle with the best in carbon fiber, titanium, and magnesium in an effort to gain every last ounce of performance. Yet, under your seat is a heavy hunk of lead that was designed in the mid 1800s. Ballistic Performance Component Batteries use the latest, state of the art lithium ferrous energy storage technology available to provide you with a smaller, lighter, higher energy battery. Each Ballistic Performance Component Battery is assembled by hand in the USA using computer designed custom proprietary cells, cases, and hardware. As a result, Ballistic Performance Component Batteries will provide more energy out of a smaller package while requiring almost no regular maintenance and under most conditions a longer service life than existing lead acid batteries. Up to 80 smaller than the stock battery Up to 10lbs Lighter than the stock battery Service life of over twice a lead acid in similar conditions Industry leading 3 year warranty Designed, developed, and assembled in the USA Hard mounted brass terminals for a direct replacement installation Completely dry technology so batteries can be mounted in any direction Non-toxic, recyclable Applications for powersports vehicles from 50cc - 1800cc Tested extensively by professional race teams Impact and water resistant Works with the orignial equipment charging system No trickle charger required, loses only 10 of charge over a year of static use

My personal experience and experiences of my forum will tell you that these are not meant for cold weather riding. Techs from lithium battery companies (including Shorai) will tell you that it takes about 5mins before it cranks an engine over, some times it'll even need a heavy current draw running through.
The brand new one I tried could not start my bike during Jan, even after a night's charge.
However if you live in warmer climates or only ride in warmer months, I would definitely recommend this or Shorai. It is the cheapest way to remove weight from up top, not to mention give you more room under the seat for other things.
It also comes with padding foam so your battery isn't just flopping around inside.
No, I do not recommend this product.
