Like all other overpants I've seen in the market, they're not exactly trendsetters... Luckily, the zipper on the side makes them easy and quick to take off before anyone has to see you in them off of your bike.
The CE armor tends to stay in place and is adjustable via velcro for where you position it. I've had the pants for 2+months, and so far they've held up well.
I haven't crashed in them, but I'm assuming that they would provide the level of protection that you'd expect from kevlar.
Overall, despite being ugly, they're pretty good.

Shark Vision-R BeCool Helmet SHARK RD engineers have created a helmet that offers the panoramic eyeport of an open-face helmet, for one of the widest view angles currently on the market, combined with the safety of the latest generation of full-face fiber-composite shells. The SHARK patented faceshield mechanism ensures a perfect seal which equates to better soundproofing, less draft and an improved water-tight seal. The Rapid Anti-Fog System slightly opens the shield in anti-mist position. This has been designed to operate smoothly with the use of gloves. Features Integrated drop-down sun visor Two composite-fiber shell sizes Shark Easy Fit glasses system offers wearers a comfort lining which has a pre-tted system to accommodate all types of glasses New Anti-Scratch/Anti-Fog coating Removable and interchangeable 3 piece liner Neckroll is PVC free and features reective material at rear Included chin curtain Two upper vents and 1 lower vents with optimized venturi effect Double D ring strap closure Sharktooth-ready ECE 2205 and DOT Certified Approximate weight of size Medium - 1450 grams

I bought this helmet 6 weeks ago - 3 weeks after purchasing, I accidentally dropped it from waste level (less than 3 feet) onto pavement, and the outer shell cracked. The outer shell didn't even crack on the impact spot, but 3-4 inches to the side.
I contacted Shark, and they wouldn't even look at it to x-ray it, and told me to throw it away.
If it got so destroyed from such a small drop, I certainly wouldn't want it on my head in a real crash.
Upon futher digging, I found out that the helmet is falsely advertised. The description Shark uses is "full-face fiber-composite shells," but don't confuse this with the carbon fiber you get in more expensive helmets. This helmet is actually plastic (which is why it cracked so easily).
I ended up tossing mine and spending a bit more on a Japanese brand - yes, they cost a little more, but the build quality is significantly better. Never purchasing a Shark product again.
