The one aspect of these boots I noticed above all others is the stiffness. These will take a long time to break in. On the one hand, it's a PITA and I'm missing a lot of shifts until they start acting like boots rather than clubs. On the other, they're rigid enough to provide good protection. Last, they're thick. I had to move my shift lever to fit under. Again, maybe that speaks to solid construction, but it definitely makes shifting a conscious effort.
No, I do not recommend this product.

AGV K3 Rossi Dreamtime Helmet The K-3 is near the top end of the AGV entry level range. GP-tech lines and Valentino Rossi replica helmet graphics make this the ideal helmet for young riders and fans of the racing world. The only full-face thermoplastic model in the agv range, the K-3 is the perfect choice for riders in search of a safe, high-quality helmet with attractive design at a modest price.The K-3 design is inspired by the latest AGV developments starting from the Stealth, S-4, and Ti-Tech and continuing with the Blade/Blade LX and GP-Tech that have so clearly and distinctive defined the companys style. This makes the helmets immediately recognizable and distinguished from all the other proposals on the market. In the same way, the differences with the helmet that the K-3 has replaced are equally evident. Fabrics Dry-Lex with hygienic treatment Inside padding Removable and washable (excluding neckroll) Number of shells 1 shell size Retention System Double-D ring Shell Painted HIR-TH (high resistant thermoplastic) resin Shield Mechanism Perimetrical visor seal, XQRS (Extra Quick Release System) - shield replacement without tools in few seconds Ventilation System Front air intakes and rear extractors Note Clear shield is included, tinted shield available for purchase separately

The fit is awesome. Stable on the highway. Quiet at speed. Paint job is sexy. It's very secure on whatever shape my head is. Vents allow plenty of air when open, block it very well when closed. The only thing I'd change is to add a piece of fabric under the chin like on some Bell helmets, to block wind coming up under and chilling you in the winter.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I am 6' and just shy of 190lbs. I got the large, and sort of wish I'd gotten the XL. It's JUST good enough that it's not worth it to me to send it back. The sleeves are a tad short and if I got fat, I'd have to step up. These are made for kind of slender guys. However, that does keep the mesh from bunching up and restricting air flow, and all the armor is in pretty much the right position (shoulder and elbow pads are a little high, I have broad shoulders and long arms; but if I had the XL, it would be baggy in the waist. same old story)
All in all, great for the money and I have no doubts about its abilities to do what it is designed to do. I'd recommend it.

I know these are over pants so they are supposed to be big, but you could wear these over another pair of over pants. The nylon is very tough, and the stretch panels are well placed ergonomically. It's tough to get them on if you already have your boots on, because you will catch your toe on the knee pads. One strange thing - it says there is hip armor. There is not. I have had two of these (stepped down in size) and neither of them have had hip armor. I don't care, but it is odd since the tags and description both mention including it. Overall these are good and inexpensive over pants.
Yes, I recommend this product.

They're waterproof and warm, what more do you want in a winter glove? Up: they work well, and look good. Down:they Tire your hands out faster from gripping the bar because they're so thick, and they can be tough to get on because of how many layers there are.
Yes, I recommend this product.

the first thing that surprised me about this jacket is how loud it is, but that's because of the waterproofing so you can only knock it so much. the full sleeve liner is very warm, and with all the vents closed this thing traps heat like a boss. i'm not crazy about the cut, however. it's cut for someone with the physique of a cardboard box. for those of us with waists, it's not the best fitting, although it's not bad. i have long arms, and the sleeves actually fit well, which was a nice surprise. most jackets are an inch or two short. the vents, like it says in the video, move some air but not a TON, so it's not a good jacket for the summer heat. i got it for winter riding, and it's perfect for the temp and precipitation of september-may.

I have longer-than-average arms, and these sleeves fit me well. the elbow cinch strap is a nice touch, it's actually just below my elbow. the cuffs and collar are long enough; the cuffs keep my gloves in place, and the collar protects my stupid pale skin from sunburn. it is mesh, so obviously it vents flawlessly. The piping is ridiculously bright at night, and my high viz yellow makes me shine like a beacon. the elbow and shoulder armor are as good protection as any. I'm very happy with this jacket, and will probably get another one just like it but in black next summer.

The vision r is a great lid. The field of vision is amazing... I can barely see the edges of the visor in my periphery. It is stable at speed, and it's not heavy. I've been putting in 2-300 mile days, and I feel fine at the end. Little to no fatigue at the end that results from the helmet. The internal sun visor is awesome, I love it. The helmet is kind of loud, but not bad. My ears aren't ringing or anything after riding for a few hours. The neck roll is a tremendous pain to put back in after removing. For the record, although it won't catch the entire sticky pad, the chin underneath the vent is enough to securely attach a curved gopro mounting plate.

For the price, I was expecting more. The sound quality is very poor. It's clear, so you should be able to know what people are saying, but music is awful and it's grating to listen to GPS voices. It was easy enough to install and set up, though, and it does its job on a basic level. I was expecting more for the price, but it's good enough.

They look good enough to wear with jeans all the time. They're definitely waterproof, I got caught in a rainstorm the other day and my feet were all that was dry by the end. The fit is true to the measurement guide. I suppose they must breathe reasonably well, because I've worn them for days on end and my feet don't get sweat-soaked. the lining is soft enough to wear them without socks, but I wouldn't do that unless you just have to. They'll start to stink.
