so far these pants are great, but they're really cold weather pants, i wore them this past friday and it was around 80 and because these pants really have minimal airflow it was hot even with the side zippers and thigh vents open.
that being said they're still fantastic, coming up on fall and winter and if there's no snow on the ground i ride, had these pants on without the liner in 40's-60's and was very comfortable. haven't had to be in anything less than the low 40's so its hard to say how it'll be when it hits the teens, but the thermal liner is pretty beefy so it should do well.
i have not had the opportunity to test the armor but the hip padding is comfortable and its got some placement options that work pretty well, and the knee armor is comfortable and doesn't shift around. I'm kind of a larger guy but losing weight and the pants are pretty well adjustable, i bought a waist size 40 and am down to 38... these pants will probably go down to a 36 with the velcro taken all the way in.
the thermal liner being its own pant is kinda nice except that just means more zippers to mess, not a big deal, i just have issues with zippers getting stuck on material. not so bad overall though.
all in all i'm really happy with these pants and am actually excited to try them out in the cold weather... and i hate winter, so thats something.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Scorpion EXO-500 Oil Neon Helmet
Scorpion EXO-500 Oil Helmet - Hi-Viz Neon The Scorpion EXO-500 immediately catches the eye with its innovative design, enhanced by a superb sharp ridge on the underside of the shell.

The EXO-500 also integrates the SpeedView built-in retractable sunvisor treated with anti-fog coating on both sides.

love this helmet, its fairly light, well vented, doesn't knock your head around too badly at highway speeds which is nice , sun visor is excellent, but this is definitely a great helmet for the money and the hi viz and oil slick design is awesome.

This jacket is awesome, i had it out last night in the cold while it was very blustery and couldn't have been more comfortable. The neckie removable collar is nice but i found myself taking it off after a while because i kept noticing it. In the bitter cold though this jacket is a solid performer. hopefully the same can be said once it warms up and i can remove the space blanket liner. Even though it was cold out I also opened the vents for a few blocks just to see how it would flow... this should be a good jacket in the summer as well.
I got the hi-viz... and wow it is really hi-viz. Armor doesn't move around or shift too much, I might have kinda short arms cause even though I wear a 48, the sleeves are a bit on the long side, but that's pretty much all my jackets so not really anything to worry about.
Bought the jacket on closeout, had my eye on it well before then, but even still for the price this is a lot of jacket, pockets and vents everywhere. My only real complaint is the back pocket on the jacket is almost impossible to get to with the jacket on. I also have a feeling the back pad could cover a bit more room, but I really hope I never have to test that one out :p.
Yes, I recommend this product.
