I love the design of this helmet, only issue I have is that the cheeks pinch in a bit on me, almost feel that if I wreck, I might break my jaw, and it fits great everywhere else, after it breaks in it'll be great. I wish it had the micro ratcheting closing instead of the double d rings, and this helmet whistles a bit too, it's not super bad but it's there.
It's a well equipped $200 helmet.
Yes, I recommend this product.

These gloves are like having the ease of use of a short glove but with the added protection of a gauntlet style glove.
I love these gloves, no more double closures, they still feel very secure even without a separate wrist closure.
I wish the scaphoid protection/slider was the Knox sliders but at least there's something there instead of just leather. And it look like it's pretty good too, just not on each side of the hand, I think it's designed to make you turn over instead of sliding on your hands at all.
The touchscreen capacity works pretty well, kinda bulky but it's good for quick things like sliding over an unwanted call or returning a movie to RedBox. Probably couldn't text very well with them though.
All in all, I really like these gloves, they've replaced my other gloves, I might buy another pair of these just to have as backups.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Nolan N86 Helmet The Nolan N86 is the new full-face helmet by Nolan characterized by its sporty, streamlined designed, compact volume, extensive standard equipment and close-fit comfort. The N86 is equipped with an inner sun visor (VPS), Pinlock anti-fog visor with silicone-sealed profile, removable/washable inner comfort padding, Microlock2 (patent pending) double lever retention system. This system consists of a thermoplastic ergonomic opening lever, and a second aluminum toothed and holding lever. The toothed lever releases the micrometric strip, thus the chin strap can only be open with a very broad rotation of the opening lever. This device minimizes the possibility of unintentional opening of the retention system. Features: Polycarbonate shell VPS (Vision Protection System) short dark shield mounted on the inside of the shell provides real eye protection when used independently from the clear shield Quick-release and multi-position anti-scratch shield accepts Pinlock antifog insert (included) Clear Pinlock faceshield and lens included Adjustable chin and top vents plus air flow rear extraction Removable and washable Clima Comfort interior lining and cheekpads with antibacterial treatment Microlock2 (patent pending) double lever retention system Ready for NCOM Communication System DOT Approved

I've had this helmet for awhile, almost 2 years, and I'm mildly disappointed. Some build quality issues with mine, the interior has some loose threads that can be annoying and I've had to glue the interior snaps back onto the helmet (the female ends) for all the interior, both cheek pads and the brow snaps. Being in a hot, humid climate might have something to do with the original glue of the original plastic female snap ends. (Your results may very.)
Besides those things, which have just happened this last week, this is a good helmet, it has all the features I want. Drop down visor and ratcheting chin strap and pre cut out speaker spaces that are sized perfectly and routing for wires for the speakers, the vents are pretty good, being in Texas they are adequate, not the best though.
Fit is really good, maybe a bit too round, it's still longer than wider though. The interior is comfortable.

Just got these today, had to return them because they were way small, I'm not skinny so some of that is my fault but I'm wondering if I should reorder them two sizes up or just one. I barely got them buttoned using my jeans size.
Besides that, they looked well made, well constructed and durable.
I hope to reorder these soon to give a more complete review.

 Icon Reign Waterproof Boots (Size 10.5 Only)
Icon Reign Waterproof Boots (Size 10.5 Only)
Icon Reign Waterproof Boots One more product to walk out of our foul-weather development center. The Reign boot's easy access and low profile design make it an excellent choice for the daily commute or long distance travel. Rugged waterproof YKK zippers make entry and exit a snap (actually a zip). The waterproof and breathable interior mean your feet stay cool and dry even when it's neither cool nor dry outside. Protection comes by the way of durable leather and a ballistic nylon upper mated with injection molded shin and ankle plates. The lowers feature an axialmetric steel shank along with slip-resistant high friction outsoles. Even with all of these features, we still managed to make them so lightweight and comfortable you may just want to wear them year 'round. Features: Durable leather and ballistic nylon upper 100 waterproof seam sealed construction Waterproof and breathable inner lining Injection molded shin and ankle plates Rubber shift interface ribs High friction Icon outsoles Axialmetric steel shank Footpeg interface arch YKK waterproof zippers

These boots feel snug but aren't uncomfortable. Definite value for purchase, I've had no problems with the zippers. The boots do feel a bit warm, not sure if that's a good thing or not yet. Overall I feel much better protected wearing these boots than the work boots I used to wear. I have a feeling these boots will last.
They aren't the easiest to put on but they hold your foot secure and feel very protective. They aren't terrible to walk around in as long as you don't have to bend up and down a lot. They take awhile to break in, I've had these boots a month and they are still stiff walking down stairs
