Seems to be an excellent product. The only prob I had with the install was having the cross brace, that feeds across the engine, upside down. The pic in the instructions was a little lacking. When you put your together, if that part doesn't seem to fit quite right, flip it. Fits perfectly then, guess I'm just too hard headed. Looks like it will hold up to a drop over in the driveway and protect everything, at speed that would be a different stroy. But I figure that's what "full coverage" is for. All in all, great bang for the buck.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Good overall helmet for a sub $200 model. Got it for passengers and fits the bill perfectly. Looks like an intercom system would fit in it nicely also. Time will tell how durable the "IS" system is, so far so good.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This line of jacket is heavier than I expected and very well made. The wife says that there is plenty of airflow to keep cool as long as you don't stop too long. Feels like pretty good abrasion protection and the armor is an added bonus.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Shoei Qwest Solid Helmet The Shoei Qwest Motorcycle Helmet was built with a focus on minimizing helmet weight, optimizing fit for comfort and protection and lowering noise levels to bring a new level of comfort to touring helmets. Featuring a slightly round oval internal shape, the Qwest helmet is manufactured with 4 individual shell sizes to keep the helmet as low-profile as possible. The smaller the helmet shell, the lighter the helmet weight. The Shoei Qwest Helmet also uses the Shoei's CW-1 visor technology with the Q.R.S.A system. This system guarantees a tight seal at the faceshield by pulling the shield back to contact the opening seal evenly. The Qwest also touts an extra-wide viewport for additional peripheral vision so you can more easily take in the world around you. Aerodynamic Shell Design Aerodynamic properties are maximized through extensive wind tunnel and feedback from professional riders Dual-Layer EPS liner enhances impact absorption and ventilation Four shell and six EPS liner sizes increase fit options that help to comfortably fit most head sizes Molded air spoiler reduces drag and lift as well as diminishes weight pressure on the neck while riding at high speeds Ventilation System Upper Air Intake Vent is positioned to maximize air volume into the helmet interior Large upper intake vent positioned to maximize performance in high wind conditions Easy to operate large lower intake vent Lower air intake/defroster vent reduces shield fogging and increases ventilation Rear/neck outlets allow for effective air exhaust Breath guard and chin curtain are included Lightweight Advanced Integrated Matrix Plus (AIM+) High performance fiber materials are combined with extremely elastic organic fibers to create a shell structure that is ultra lightweight, rigid and resilient Interior 3D center pad and multi-layered, polyurethane foam cheek pads Cheek pads are replaceable or removable for maintenance Eyeglass-compatible interior Standard chin strap clip neatly secures chin strap CW-1 Shield and Q.R.S.A. System Q.R.S.A. (Quick-Release Self-Adjusting) base plate allows for tool-less shield removal and installation Spring-loaded base plate pulls the shield back to contact the window beading evenly and ensures a proper seal Scratch-resistant coating 99.9 protection from harmful UV A and B rays Optional, CWF-1 two-dimensional Pinlock equipped racing shields with tear-off posts are available (sold separately) Optional, CW-1 Pinlock prepared shields are available to accommodate Pinlock Fog Free Inserts (sold separately) The CW-1, three-dimensionally curved shield is both wider and taller than the CX-1V it replaces A pre-set lever can easily lock the shield in place to prevent the shield from opening unexpectedly, as well as prop the shield open to increase airflow Additional Features Construction AIM+ (Advanced Integrated Matrix Plus Multi Fiber) Weight 3.644 lbs / 1,653 grams (approx, for Size Medium) Standards Snell-M2010, DOT Please Note The vents on the Brilliant Yellow helmet are black, not yellow as shown in product photo. Note Due to manufacturer restrictions, the Qwest Helmet and other Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States

Light, good vision, comfortable. Would recommend, no doubt about it. Only nick is the visor latch on the left side to lock or crack open seems a little touchy and the airflow, while adequate, could be better I think with larger exhaust vent.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Feels like good protection. Not sure how long the thin plastic buckles will last popping them open/closed everytime. Not as robust of a buckle system as a ski boot. Breaks in fairly quickly and is comfortable to wear around at your destination. Good mid height boot.
