Airflow? We don't need no stinking airflow!

Gloves are probably the hardest items to review and recommend because it's the one piece of equipment that you'll either love or hate, and the next rider will completely disagree with you.
First, these are great gloves. The fit (for the most part) is great, the finish is even better. The amount of tech that they put in this glove is amazing, and I hope never to have to use them. I wear a size 9 in other gloves, but I got the size 10 based on the sizing chart. The glove fits like a charm except that the digits are a tad big longer than the Held for some reason. The only time I notice the length is when I'm trying to push a small button (which is not that often).
Next, air flow... Well, there isn't much there at all. This glove is windproof so if you're expecting air to flow freely around your hands forget it. I've ridden the deserts of SoCal with these at 90+, and it wasn't quite as bad as I expected. Yes, your hands will get warm (it is 90+ degrees after all), but my hands stayed mostly dry the entire time (thanks to the Gore-Tex material). I actually prefer these in the hot weather because of exactly that - my hands stay dry! On the flip side I've ridden with these down to 40 degrees in the mountain canyons and they worked great. [NOTE: Heated grips are perfect in cold weather with these gloves].
I have winter gloves, summer gloves, and now these. I'm going to be wearing a lot less of the former two.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Had high hopes when I purchased these (not on Revzilla), but had to return them twice because the stitching came undone on the index finger (twice!). The problem is that the stitching is on the outside so they tend to get caught on the velcro on my jacket (especially around the sleeve cuff). After a while the stitching just tears apart. After the glove broke apart the third time I just threw them away.
But before they broke apart the gloves worked like a charm. Good summer gloves with great air flow. Can't talk much about protection though.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Icon Super Duty 4 Boots The fourth iteration of our industry defining Superduty boot pays direct homage to it's SD1 patriarch. The visually defining rubber nub interface and clean pattern lines keep the boot's appearance smooth while hidden ghillie laces reduce snag potential. The new bottom unit provides increased support, durability, and grip while layered foam increases comfort. The midfoot support strap, with upgraded aluminum buckle, provides increased foot retention. Finally, the reduced toebox height provides a greater range of fitment. The Superduty 4, the next step in motorcycle footwear. Durable leather upper Axialmetric steel shank Slip resistant rubber sole Footpeg interface arch Internal ankle protection Adjustable midfoot stabilizer strap Aluminum positive-lock buckle Low profile lacing system Shifter interface nubs

Overall great, comfortable boots that you can walk in after riding. I've ridden in these boots on long camping trips where I can do a little hiking after I get off the bike. I've also taken the boots on light off-roading with no problems.
I've had to return a pair after about three months because one of the eye-hold for the lace snapped. This is the one right under the metal o-ring loops, which has a tendency to be the one pulled when tightening the laces so it's going to have the greatest wear.
Revzilla was great about replacing the boots with brand new ones and no problems so far on the second pair. I'm starting to see more wear on the eye-loop again, but it hasn't snapped yet.
Yes, I recommend this product.
