I bought this for two reasons:
1. To wear under my shell jacket for general winter wonderland festivities
2. To wear under my Dainese Avro Textile jacket for colder weather riding
Fit: I am about 5'9" and 180 lbs. I bought the medium and it fits like a glove. The problem with buying pieces to layer is you sorta have to guess on the size based on how much layering you want to have under and over it.
Performance: The jacket with a t-shirt and sweater was NOT capable of keeping me warm in low 30's degree weather alone. (However, that is asking a lot of it.) Teamed with my shell, i was warm with a total of 4 thin layers at around 30 degrees and high winds (15 MPH).
Features: The jacket does have pockets but if you zip them down to use them you are essentially venting the jacket. It does stretch and when was new smelled like neoprene. The stretch factor made it easier to get some base stuff on underneath, including some bulkier sweatshirts.
Value: Overall the jacket is a decent value. You might be able to find something that performs nearly as well for 20 or 30 bucks cheaper. However, the build quality is exceptional. I was moving stuff with a friend and nails slid off without ripping the jacket skin.
Unfortunately, I have only had a quick ride in 30 degree weather. With my Arcteryx shell and the Dingo my torso did not get cold.
X-Factor: Whats nice about the Dingo is it's great to use on its own. It looks cool to wear and weight essentially nothing. On warmer days I have just been wearing the Dingo to work and about town.

The visor is okay. It tints to about medium smoke. It's nice to use with a pair of light sunglasses and to help dull the odd flash in the morning or evening when not wearing sunglasses.
The major problem is that for the price the tint doesn't perform as well as it should. I would be much happier paying $70 for this visor, and it is a nice piece of kit to own with no down-side... it is just that the upside is not so great.

This bag is well made... if you want the best buy Kriega. But it was smaller than I expected. Luckily as a squishy bag it can expand to hold more than you'd think. It's still small. I have mine attached to the back of my Shiver and it seems to seat well but does slack around some. I would say that if you remove the can from a box this pack would hold about 16 12oz aluminum cans.
Installation is a bit of a pain to get perfect expect to spend at least 30 minutes.
My major problem is that such a nice bag is that I don't want to leave it attached to the bike. It has nice and easy to get to snaps but there is no handle or strap so you kinda have to hold it awkwardly.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Right off the bat I see no reason to get the standard version of this boot... Either get the Air out or the Water Proof one. The venting does an okay job of cooling your feet and even in 60's degree weather one thin pair of socks is enough tot keep your feet warm.
The armor on the shin wasn't as sturdy as I thought from the images... it is flexible but fairly thick. It's just not a solid chuck of plastic like the pics might lead you to believe.
It comfortable and the calf adjustment is great. Rear zip works too. They have a hard sole so they are not the best to walk around in but I've spend hours in them with no issues. What's also nice is you can zip them down and they'll still hold your feet.
They also fit under jeans just fine or you ca tick into the boot so that's a nice feature.

First things first. The elastic at t6he top of the boot is tough. It tightens, turns in and presses hard against the shin. It starts to hurt. I don't think the elastic is even needed there and I am looking at ways to modify them.
The overall fit and comfort otherwise is great. I wear a 10.5 us and I had to get the euro 44. They are a tad long in the toes but fit well. It is possible that a 43 might have fit better but I didn't get the chance to try them in comparison. I also have very narrow feet so these were a tad loose side to side but feel good.
They break in very quickly and are plenty comfortable to walk around in, though not nearly as comfortable as a sneaker. UNLIKE the video of the race outs there is no internal calf adjustment. I have large calves and these fit fine, someone with thin calves might have a fit issue.
The boots have redundant armor that circles the foot and even with the protection are okay to move in once broken in. The touring model might be better if you plan on doing something more hardcore off the bike like hiking.
One thing you can do is zip down the boots and walk around in them, they'll stay on.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I like these gloves. I would place them as a lighter full gauntlet style. There isn't much protection but they are nimble and fit skinny fingers well.
The carbon knuckle is a nice touch but the protection does not follow through to the rest of the mit. I should all the major areas are protected by not by much.
I would stray away as a primary knee-dragger glove but is good for touring or running on nice days.
Yes, I recommend this product.
