Great jacket for a variety of weather conditions. First day I used the jacket the temperature was 35 degrees and I had no problem keeping warm with both liners in. I am 6'1" and approx 165 pounds so the medium fits me perfect. I also have slightly longer arms so the fact that the jacket has slightly longer sleeves is perfect. I saw other people report the jacket having longer sleeves and that's one of the main reasons I opted for it. No gap between the jacket and my short gloves which is great for me. Recently had a day in the low 70's and I was able to take out the rain and warm liners and test the air flow which worked very well. Can't wait for a hot summer day next year to take full advantage of that. Great fit and finish as usual from Tour Master. Overall, I give the jacket a big two thumbs up.

Shoei Neotec Modular Helmet Building upon the success of their previous modular helmets, the Shoei Neotec Helmet was designed with long distance and ADV touring in mind. The innovative tri-composite shell has been designed to provide riders with a smooth and quiet ride while reducing, lift, weight and increasing overall safety. The shell of the Neotec has also been designed to house the internal drop-down sun visor, eliminating the need to reduce the thickness of the EPS liner and potentially compromise safety. An integrated face shield shield and chinbar pivot point reduces the number of moving parts, mitigates wind noise and enables riders to close both the chinbar and face shield in the same motion. Shoeis stainless steel 360 Pivot Locking System secures the chinbar when it is in the closed position and the dual-layer EPS liner provides enhance impact absorption and is channeled to facilitate ventilation. From the shell to EPS to the 3D formed comfort liner, the Shoei Neotec is purpose built to provide unrivaled rider comfort and safety. Perfect for nearly any type of ride and rider, the Neotec is the ultimate in touring performance.

I would highly recommend this helmet. Shoei offers what I feel are premium products and the Neotec absolutely delivers with excellent fit and finish and build quality as expected. Solid modular and visor movement and control mechanisms. I was surprised at how quite the helmet was when riding. First day of use was a chilly 39 degrees F and there was no hint of cold getting inside the helmet from the chin and upper neck area. I tried-on the helmet at a local dealer before making the final decision. The Shoei just fits me better and is more comfortable for longer periods of time. Only draw-back of course is the price, which kept me from giving it an "excellent" rating here, but I was willing to shell-out the money for what I think is the most important piece of riding gear you will own. So for me, it's worth the extra $ especially after comparing to other top-end helmets.
