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 Evolving on previous designs, Shoei has revamped its modular helmet style with a streamlined and attractively sculpted shape that conveys the feel of freely moving through the outdoors in the Shoei Neotec Modular Helmet. Overall shell size is kept compact by incorporating the internal sun visors open/close mechanism inside all ventilation mechanisms are shaped and positioned in such a way as to reduce any possible drag. A redesigned aerodynamic spoiler also helps to cut lift, reducing neck strain on long, cross country rides. In the Shoei Neotec all these features combine to create a premium helmet that excels in appearance, protection, comfort and performance. The Shoei Neotec Helmets chin bar is connected to the same axis point and mechanism as its shield, minimizing extra parts. This also enables simultaneous closing of the shield with the chin bar, which is then held in place with an easy-open lock release button. The shield lock system offers secure closure or the ability to keep the shield slightly open to allow for increased airflow. With the Shoei Neotec Helmet, Shoei now includes a built-in sun shield, the QSV-1. The visor tucks neatly away beneath a non-intrusive shell built into the helmets liner, and can be lowered with the easy control of a sliding button. Shoei Neotec Helmet Features Face Shield Features Easily operable lever mechanism Anti-fog, anti-scratch, 99 UV blocking New Pinlock-ready CNS-1 faceshield Wider and taller than the CX-1V that it replaces Includes Pinlock insert 3D injection molding process ensures a distortion-free view Improved Ventilation and Aerodynamics Newly designed vortex generators pull air through helmet 276 more airflow than Multitec Added inlets and outlets Vents are flush against helmet to maintain aerodynamics 5-Ply Shock-Absorbing Fiber Shell 3 shell sizes AIM Multi-Composite construction Lightweight yet strong Shell-integrated spoiler reduces lift and drag during high-speed riding Dual EPS Liner Multi-density EPS for optimal protection Two vents funnel fresh air through the EPS liner Dual liner channels route and disperse air evenly throughout the helmet EPS liner in chin bar All new interior Fully removable 3D interior liner Top center pad is removable and washable Improved cheekpad design allows better fit with eyeglasses Included chin curtain can be inserted into the chin bar to reduce turbulence and noise All Neotec Helmets sold in the US have a double D-ring closure Be sure to check out our Shoei Neotec Review above, in which we detail and break down all of the features and functionality of the brand new Shoei Neotec Helmet.

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.
