Comfort is top notch, even though they are still in their break in period.
Waterproofing works fine.
More comfortable for walking than the Gaerne boot, likely due to only having 2 buckles and not a 3rd one up high. That likely comes at the cost of some ankle support when the bike starts going over.
Boot certainly has visible protection.
This is a THICK boot. I'm likely going to have to reposition my shifter.
Yes, I recommend this product.

These pants work great with the Transition 2 jacket for adventure riding.
I like the look of the somewhat external padding.
Can't comment on crash protection or durability, thankfully.
Fit for the small is a little odd in the hips and thighs. For a 30 inch waist, I would have thought the hips and thighs would be a bit slimmer (though that might be because I don't ride with the liner in).
Yes, I recommend this product.

Thankfully, I can't review crash protection and durability yet.
I needed a 3/4 length touring/adv jacket that would give me waterproof warmth. It rains half the year here. Water blows up my short Joe Rocket sport jacket.
This jacket is waterproof and warm. I like the styling, and it has good reflective material. In a few months, I'll be able to gauge how it works with the liner out.
One note on sizing. I've always been between a small - torso - and medium - arm length - on JR jackets. This jacket, as a medium, fits me perfectly. I suspect the chest measurements on the TourMaster may be an inch smaller than JR.
Works well with TourMaster Caliber pants.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is my third Arai helmet, so understand I am partial. I've also totalled a tree, a bike and destoyed an Arai Profile, but not my head, so I am real partial.
The XD4 is my first dual sport helmet, as my road and off-road riding seem to have merged into one bike.
The helmet fits great. Arai's building for the long oval head shape is awesome. It is true to Arai's sizing history. My medium is a medium.
Sound is MUCH less than I had anticipated given the visor.
As advertised, there is a lot of air flow. Much more than my replacement Profile or my MX helmet. I always start with all the vents open; I had to close some down - that never happens.
The flip up visor on an off-road helmet is a gift. I wear glasses to see anything. Off-road goggles over glasses are agony. For my type of off-road riding, that visor is worth it's weight in gold.
I have no problem recommending this helmet.
Yes, I recommend this product.
