Typical of Wolfman quality, this bag is well made and the attachment harness works great. I use this and an Enduro Tank Bag, the harness is the same with only a slight adjustment needed for strap length. There is a big difference in size between this Pocket and the Tank Bag. This pocket is for only the smallest of essentials. But it is completely out of the way, I've never felt it when standing up on singletrack.

These are comfortable, a slim fit to wear under your clothing. The design is typical of Leatt: top of the line quality. The rubber elbow padding isn't very thick, but with the new materials and molding techniques, they can give lots of impact protection without needing to be big and stiff. I hope. I haven't wrecked with them and hope I never do, so I used the "whack myself" test protocol and they do protect well. I thumped my elbow on the kitchen counter and into the door frame and they are as good as my Fox Launch hard shell armor. I can't speak to their durability because they are very new. But Leatt has a great reputation so I expect them to hold up to normal wear.
Thin and comfortable, almost invisible under a long sleeve t-shirt. ATGATT rider? This is the ticket.

These shorts fit great and have good protection everywhere. I looked at everything I could find in stores and on the web and I think these are the best combination of offering full coverage and still being comfortable. And the mesh fabric is cool, I don't know I'm wearing them as soon as I start my engine. I can even get armored up at home and these aren't a problem driving my pickup to the riding areas.
I was hoping to find a short that included a chamois pad for comfort. I think the reason against that is then you would need to wash them much more often, and with the hard armor that would be more of a problem. I wear the Moto-Skiveez shorts under these and it's an easy maintenance combination. A bicycle riding short would be good too, but there are advantages to the Moto-Skiveez because they are cut specifically for our use.
These aren't bulky under my riding pants, Fox Legion pants, even when worn over the padded shorts. Anthony says they're on the bulky side in his review but I've seen a lot worse. As I said, they aren't a problem driving in my little Tacoma, and that's a real bad place to have a Kardashian® butt.
I recommend these if you want good protection on your hips, thighs, and tailbone. They aren't bulky to me, and I'm pudgy.

These pants were too heavy duty for me and I returned them. They are listed in with Motocross Pants and they are an ADV / Dual Sport pant. An "over the boot" is not motocross. The quality is everything you'd expect from MSR and the features are great. But these pants are designed for the cross continent back roads touring rider.
I was very impressed with the construction and features and if you're looking for an all weather-padded-do everything pair of pants then I highly recommend these. They are just way more than I'm looking for. I traded them for the Fox Legion pants, lighter weight and more for day ride use.

I'm an All The Gear All The Time guy. I wear these for every road ride and many dual sport rides that aren't likely to get extreme. They are comfortable enough that I forget I'm wearing them. The padding is a compromise between comfort and protection. I'm sure you can smack a knee harder than this gear can deflect, so if I expect trouble I'll wear moto hard knee pads.
If you want one piece of armor that you can slip on under jeans, and get pretty good protection, I recommend these pants.

I've been wearing Fox moto pants for 10 years. I've had their 180 and 360 platforms and never had any problems. They fit me well, hold up to crash landings, and clean up well afterwards. These Legend pants are built with the better 360 fabric and have added zippered pockets and vents. Both are very nice added features.
These aren't race day pants, you don't want pockets on the track. They are great for dual sport and adventure riding, the extra pockets and vents are really nice. This is the "in the boot" model, they also make an "over the boot" Legend EX pant. I've had mine for over a year and they are holding up great.

I have older Sidi Crossfire boots and like them a lot, they have great protection, especially for when I lived in Moab and rode hard and fast. Now I'm in Michigan and mostly ride dual sport so I wanted a softer all around boot that will let me walk also. But I still wanted great protection. The Adventure Rain boots are exactly what I was hoping for.
The boots were comfortable right from the start, I didn't need any break in time. They're easy to walk in, and much lighter than my Crossfires. The Adventure Rain weigh 6 pounds for the pair, my Crossfires are 9 pounds. A tall / armored boot like this is going to be warm, especially with thick moto socks, but it's no hotter than any other boot I've owned. I haven't waterproof tested them yet.

These Forcefield shorts offer the most protection I've ever found in any under armor. If you're looking for maximum padding then these are for you. The pads are very thick, double layers of material, and bulky because they cover more of your lower body than others do. The odds are against your landing on a spot that is unprotected. When you first pick them up you'll be surprised by the weight but you don't notice it when you put them on. You will notice the thickness, almost diaper like, so make sure you have plenty of room in your riding pants. The pads conform well to your contours, it's just that there is much more to them than other shorts offer.
You'll also notice the smell immediately. All Forcefield armor smells pretty bad when new but it goes away fairly soon. My Forcefield rib protector took a few months but that's a much larger chunk of their rubber and not wrapped in any fabric like these shorts.
Many reviewers of these shorts have said they run large but I don't agree. I fit either a med or large depending on the product so I ordered a med on the previous posters advise and they're too small on me. I like a loose fit and wear 36" jeans but often buy med in other clothing. I had to send these back, the medium was uncomfortably tight around my waist.
If you're looking for the most protection you can get then these are for you. Forcefield uses High Tech Materials that are superior to what most other companies offer. If you hit something with bone breaking force you need more than a thin piece of foam.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I have a Medium and it's a true fit, 5'9 & 170 lbs. The fabric is a little stiff but still comfortable enough. It weighs 2 lbs 2 ounces and conforms under a coat so you don't look or feel inflated. I've seen pictures of it worn covering both the front and the back, Revzilla shows it worn on the back. I wear it covering my chest, it wraps around the ribs better that way. I bought it because nothing else gives good side protection and that's where I've busted bones twice, the last time gave me a week vacation in the hospital with a tube in my chest. You might want to add a back protector, or a chest protector depending on which way to wear it. In either case you will be left with something not covered. But the other gear, suits, and harnesses that covers both chest and back never adequately protect your sides, except the rodeo vests that the bull riders wear.
Yes, I recommend this product.
