I got this as a "passenger jacket", for my daughter or my girlfriend to wear on the back of the bike. It was on sale, making it even better when it arrived and I saw how cool it was. Decent elbow and shoulder pads in a very nice textile jacket. The sleeves are a little long for the cut of the jacket, but both girls have long arms, so it works fine for us. They both like the style, and the leopard print some don't like is only really noticeable when it's on a hanger in the closet.

I really wanted these gloves to work out. Like most Roland Sands products, they look fantastic. But the fingers and in particular the thumbs are shorter than any gloves I've ever worn. I have long fingers, but typically can get a big enough size and I'm fine. Add to that the inconsistent stitching that creates lumps inside the gloves, and I couldn't get a fit that felt good enough to justify the cost. RevZilla was awesome as usual, through 2 returns. If you try 'em, I suggest going a size or two above your usual size, and crossing your fingers you get good stitching.

Nolan N104 Outlaw Helmet Nolan N104 Helmets represent an evolutionary step for Nolan as they replace the much touted N103 Helmet. When compared the older N103, the Nolan N104 Helmet offers a helmet which is much lighter (7oz), features a lower profile through the use of multiple shell sizes, better aerodynamics, as well as a much larger viewport for increased visibility. The (patented) chin guard rotation movement with elliptical trajectory makes it possible to keep the total size of the helmet's front section to a minimum, when the chin guard is open. The sail effect is consequently highly reduced and riding comfort is still guaranteed, even when the chin guard is lifted. The new ultrawide eyeport is the largest of any Nolan helmet, both vertically and laterally for maximum field of view. The AIRBOOSTER ventilation system is equipped with an air intake in the chin bar, another intake in the brow and two rear extractors at the rear. The inner comfort lining includes removable cheekpads, inner liner, neckroll and chin curtain and is easily removable and washable as well as antifungal and antibacterial. New, redesigned comfort liner also accommodates eyeglasses much more easily than before. All Nolan N104 helmets are also N-COM B4 ready ( N-COM B4 is designed expressly for the N104 and is sold separately). Shell Features Injected polycarbonate GE Lexan shell 7oz lighter than the Nolan N103 Two Shell engineering allows Nolan N104 to offer sizes from 2XS to 3XL (2XS-LG and XL-3XL) Dimensionally correct sizing allows ample cubic volume in chin/nose area Faceshield Features Face shields are now sized to fit the two different shell sizes (2XS-LG and XL-3XL) Ultra wide eye port opening is the largest on any Nolan helmet for superior visibility Shield is changed by a simple push button mechanism Pinlock shield included with each helmet VPS (Vision Protection System) is new slider bar to lower, push button release for instant retraction VPS lens is scratch and fog resistant Chin Bar Features Centromatic chin guard opening mechanism requires dual action, simultaneous action to prevent accidental opening Dual action opening mechanism is positioned in the centre of the chin guard and allows for easy, one-handed opening Ventilation N104 has new AIRBOOSTER ventilation system, ensures optimal ventilation where is is most required Air intake in the chin guard draws air in and onto the inside of the faceshield 3 position top vent (closed, crown vent, crown/brow vent) 2 venturi exhaust ports at rear of helmet New plastic vent tube channels in EPS disperse cool air throughout the helmet interior Inner Liner Features removable cheek pads, inner liner, neck roll and wind protector The inner padding of the new N104 is easily removable and washable and antibacterial The shape of the inner comfort padding facilitates eyeglass wearing Reflective insert at the centre of the roll neck further improves the rider's visibility at night Neck roll can be removed easily, for more comfort in the warmer months Other Features N-Com Communication System compatible (sold separately) Features new Microlock2 quick-release retention system Microlock2 consists of a plastic ergonomic opening lever, and of a second aluminium toothed and holding lever Microlock2 minimizes the possibility of unintentional opening while still making it ergonomic and easy to use Meets or exceeds D.O.T. standards

I haven't owned a zillion helmets. But I did try on MANY before settling on this one. I have a long oval head and a tall forehead (thanks dad). AND I wear glasses. This helmet rocks. Easy on and off, great fit, and a tremendous field of vision. The inner sun visor is a nice touch. Some have said the cutout for your nose is too big. While it is a weird profile (unless you have some sort of animal snout), I like the fact that I can drop my gaze and check the gauges beneath the tinted visor. There's a good balance of air flow and quiet. I really shopped, hoping for a less expensive helmet, but this one won based on how well it fit.
