This balaclava is awesome! I've tried a few - this is exactly what I was looking for all along. The top is so thin that it is comfortable under a full face helmet. The bottom totally stops the wind, therefore keeping your neck warm. Keeping your neck warm makes a big difference in cold temps. I was riding the other day with snow on the ground (none on the streets). I was comfortable. Buy one.
Pros Comfortable
Yes, I recommend this product.

Recommending these pants.

I bought the Medium Tall size. They fight fine, but slightly short and maybe a bit snug. In hindsight, maybe I should've gotten the Large Tall, but I'm still very happy with these pants. Maybe them being snug is a good thing - they keep me warm and they aren't going to shift around if I go for an asphalt ride.
The pockets are great. They eliminate the need for a tank bag sometimes.
Bottom line... They are well made and warm. Buy yourself a pair.
Pros Rugged, Comfortable
Yes, I recommend this product.

So far, great glove for colder weather. Very comfortable lining - really nice. Not quite as much feel as a summer glove, but you wouldn't expect it to be. I had a very low speed tip over on gravel within a week of buying them - did the job. No pain at all, and barely a scuff on the gloves. Quality gloves.
Pros Rugged, Comfortable

I bought these pants to go with my Phoenix jacket. The jacket is awesome - no problems with it. The pants don't quite meet the standards of the jacket. Now take this review with a grain of salt because these are my first pair of motorcycle pants.
Three issues with these pants: The mesh has already started to fray at the bottom of the legs, and I haven't been letting them drag the ground. This makes me wonder how these pants would survive a crash. The knee armor doesn't seem to stay in place and isn't that comfortable - I'll probably replace it with something else. The hip armor is a joke.
On the plus side, these pants flow air well which has been nice during this hot Georgia summer. The leather seems to be very high quality and it is in spots where you'd definitely need it during a crash. They pair up with the Phoenix jacket very well and look good together.
Overall, these are good pants, just not as good as the top-notch Rev'it Phoenix jacket that they were made to pair with. I would have given them 4 stars if the mesh didn't fray so easily at the bottom.
Yes, I recommend this product.

 Sidi Sport Rain Boots
Sidi Sport Rain Boots
Sidi, continuously researching new technological solutions to enhance rider safety, is proud to present the new 2008 Sport Rain boot. With Sidis great style, feel, support and quality there are no finer performance off road boots in the world. Non-Bootie Designs Sidi boots do not incorporate inner booties into their design, and for good reason. Booties make the design larger and cumbersome add to the boots thickness, which interferes with shifting, plus the inner booties retain body heat affecting the riders performance and comfort. Lining Each boot is lined throughout with lightweight perforated Teflon treated fabric in order to allow moisture to breath out to the Lorica outer and dry quickly with no mold build up in the long term. Additionally the inner ankle area of all Strada series boots are fully lined with Sidis own formula of perforated closed thousand-air cell memory foam. A totally breathable lining system. Composite Insole Sidi is the only manufacture to use a composite insole that is anatomically shaped to the rider. A cushioned liner is provided that can be removed if the rider desires a more roomy fit. Sidi does not use steel shanks riveted to its insole like most manufactures, details such as this enable Sidi boots to enjoy a multi year service life versus the competitors multi month lifespan as over time, a steel shank can deteriorate, rust and fracture exposing the rider to injury. Lorica Boot's outer is fully constructed with Lorica, a composite micro fiber material created from strands less than one thousandth the thickness of silk. When injected with special resins, these fibers act like natural leather skin, but with the addition of better strength, softer texture, lighter weight and better moisture protection. Lorica is also highly resistant to abrasion - yet it still breathes - with more than three million pores per square centimeter. Easy to maintain, Lorica doesnt stain and cant be scratched and offers, reduced weight, more flexibility and more feel than leather racing boots. Features A mid height boot Membrane equipped to add a water resistant yet breathable barrier between the elements and the riders feet Lorica outer construction Perforated Teflon treated nylon lining Composite inner sole Removable arch support Internal heel protection Internal ankle protection Internal toe protection Zipper and Velcro closure system Non-slip lug sole Lorica toe shift pad Double stitched in all high stress areas Reflective heel panel Thousand air cell padded shin area Quilted calf area for comfort

These have been great boots. When I first bought them, they were quite stiff, and I wondered if I had made a mistake. They broke in fairly quickly and now I really like them. They've held up really well, and they stay looking brand new with just a wipe from a damp cloth every few weeks. I'd buy Sidi again. Only minor issue - I wish there was a bit more adjustability for the fit above the ankle. But really, they fit pretty well. I've worn them almost every day this summer, and they haven't been very hot.
Pros Comfortable, Great Value, Fashionable, Rugged
Yes, I recommend this product.

This has been a great bag. It's just the right size - fits a fair amount of stuff without getting in the way. The construction is solid. It has a rain cover that pulls out of the front and that has been handy with the few summer thunderstorms here. Well designed. No complaints here.
Pros Great Value, Rugged
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is a great jacket. It flows a lot of air, yet it has the abrasion protection of leather where you need it. This is my first motorcycle jacket, so I don't have anything to compare it to, but I've been very happy with it so far. I got the white and black and it looks very sharp. Fairly comfortable on the bike too!
Pros Fashionable, Great Value, Comfortable
