The sizing chart suggested a size XXL. This was way to big. I exchanged for size LG-XL. I really tried hard to get a correct fit with the jacket I wear but found it impossible to do so, even with all the possible adjustments. The brace will not stay in place and will thus not provide proper protection. The brace itself seems sturdy but the elastic bands keeping it in place are a gimmick. Returning this for a refund. Revzilla's customer support is great. Do not expect any support from the company that makes the brace. If you have back and shoulder armor you will have fitment problems. Do not trust the provided size chart
No, I do not recommend this product.

I wanted some summer gloves that provide protection. Protection and air flow are conflicting goals. These gloves provide good protection while still having decent airflow. If you want more airflow you have to give up protection. The gloves are very stiff at first and hard to get into. They certainly require some use to break in and become comfortable. This is a short cuff gloves that still provides decent ulnar protection. The gloves are not waterproof (obviously). Kind of expensive but very very nice gloves.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Gerbing's Heated Socks Motorcycling and cold feet dont mix. Your feet control braking, shifting and provide stability when you stop. Thats why Gerbings developed their new Microwire Sock Liners to wrap snugly around each foot, and deliver even heat to the tops as well as the bottoms. And the socks are cut specifically for left/right feet for a perfect fit and better warmth. Made from a lightweight, wicking, four-way stretch material, the new Sock Liners feature Gerbings patented Microwire Heat Technology for the kind of smooth, soothing heat only Gerbings can deliver. And these new Sock Liners sport a special long cut that pulls up over your calf, making them ideal regardless how tall your boots are. Gerbings Heated Sock Liners. Theyll help your feet defeat the cold. Gerbing's socks are made from a lightweight, wicking, four-way stretch material The socks are heated on the bottom and top of the sock concentrating heat toward the toes which adds extra heat where it is needed most Extended height to cover the calf Wide elastic band for extra comfort Sock design is specific to left and right for a better fit AWM round power cable maximizes comfort Hand-washable anti-bacterial-treated material Patented Microwire heating technology Lifetime Warranty on the sock liners' Microwire heating technology Specifications Heat Microwire heat technology Source 12-volts DC Current 1.4amps/pair Watts 17 Watts Surface Temp 135F 5 at 32F Gerbing's and RevZilla STRONGLY recommend the use of a temperature controller with this product, failure to do so may cause burns.

I'm using these with a dual heat troller. With heated gloves, jacket liner & pant liner it is tricky to get temperatures right. The socks are definitely warm. They are somewhat of a pain to put on and wire up. Time will tell how durable the socks are but whenever I put them on I'm afraid I'll rip the fabric. The socks are comfortable to ride in but not at all comfortable to walk in. Overall not bad and your feet do stay warm in these.
Yes, I recommend this product.
