If you're like me--that is, too cheap to buy riding pants but still want protection--these guards are perfect. Cheaper than a lot of similar products, and they cover much more area. They fit great under jeans and are plenty comfortable to walk around in all day. Air flow is great, thanks to the perforated plastic design. Overall, a great product, and easily the best bang for your buck for knee/shin protectors.

Alpinestars S-MX1 Boots A complete revamp of its predecessor, the Alpinestars S-MX 1 Boot is low profile, comfortable, and fuctional with a refreshed style in both black and white. It also has a toe slider, velcro adjustment strap and a styled TPU shift pad. This shoe will go up against any of the other sport riding shoes and boots in the 100 to 200 range. Look for the S-MX 1 Riding Shoes to be a perennial favorite for the casual enthusiast and hard core sport riders. Features Upper constructed from lightweight microfiber Breathable mesh inserts and perforated side panel for enhanced ventilation Foam backed, double density ankle protector on the medial side Reinforced toebox layered under the microfiber upper Plush 3D mesh inner liner Combination zipper and Velcro strap closure system Outsole constructed with the same advanced rubber compound as the S-MX 5 Boot External TPU protection on the outer ankle External TPU shift pad, slider and heel counter Integrated shank in the sole for extra rigidity Anatomically profiled EVA foam footbed.

This boot is fantastic. I first used it on 100°F+ days, and as soon as I got moving it kept my feet nice and cool. It looks great, offers great protection (replaceable sliders), and is comfortable to walk around in. It does fit large, as Revzilla's review video would suggest. I went down a size and it fits perfectly.
The only complaint I have about this boot is that the ankle could use a strap. That area cant be tightened and fits somewhat loose. With just the foot strap tightened down, I tested it out by yanking on it and it did not want to come off. With the foot strap loose, the boot does have some movement, but the zipper actually held my foot to the point where I still couldn't get it off.
Fantastic boot. I'd recommend it to everyone looking for a casual riding boot.

This helmet really is the best protection you'll get for the money. I'm not sure there's a cheaper Snell M 2010 helmet out there. It comes with a very effective anti-fog insert. The air vents are novel, but you really cant tell if they're doing anything; most of the airflow comes through the bottom of the helmet.
Overall, if you're looking for an economical, yet safe and comfortable helmet, this is the only way to go.

Alpinestars SMX-2 Air Carbon Gloves - 2011 version With carbon protection and motocross inspired styling and comfort, the Alpinestars SMX2 Air Carbon glove makes an excellent choice for summer motorcycle riding. Utilizing an advanced leather and mesh hybrid construction, Alpinestars SMX-2 Air Carbon Glove offers the street rider superior comfort and performance while the carbon fiber knuckle and Clarino reinforced palm ensures high levels of protection. Lightweight hybrid leather and mesh upper construction offers the ideal combination of durability, abrasion resistance and comfort. Synthetic leather palm construction with Clarino reinforcements provides extra durability and protection where it is needed most. Reinforced landing zone with built in foam padding offers additional impact protection Sizing Note If you are in between sizes order a size larger, in RevZilla's experience these gloves fit slightly small.

Be careful when you're putting them on.

This glove offers great protection and great airflow, and looks great for sure. However something I noticed is you really have to be careful when you're putting them on. If you pull on the velcro, it will tear very quickly. I wore these gloves for two days and managed to tear one of them. There is a leather tab that you can pull down on to help get them on. Use that.
Other than that detail, the gloves are great.

This is a very nice jacket, but don't I'd recommend against using it in the summer. Even without the liner, it is surprisingly heavy, and the vents only do so much.
The fit is very American. Nice and snug around the arms and shoulders, a bit spacey around the midsection.
