After reading the reviews I ordered the size 34 as that is my normal waist size , fit perfect over shorts or jeans. Match up fine with my Switchback Jacket. Have not had a chance to try the rain liner yet but expect them to work fine. Pants are long without boots on but work perfect while riding - not going to bother hemming them. The bottom cuff has Velcro adjustment so the extra length is controlled while walking.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Alpinestars CR-4 Gore-Tex XCR Boots Brand new for Fall 2011, the Alpinestars CR-4 Gore-Tex XCR Boots offer motorcycle protection with hiking-boot style and comfort. They'll get you through the worst of weather conditions thanks to the Gore-Tex XCR waterproof and breathable membrane. Although it is quite a mouthful, the Alpinestars CR-4 Gore-Tex Boots deliver in performance what they lack in brevity. That is to say, we think the Alpinestars CR4 Boots will be some of the most popular motorcycle boots for Fall 2011. Features Upper constructed from a combination of PU coated leather, suede and textile Breathable mesh lining on the collar and tongue and features waterproof and highly breathable GORE-TEX XCR membrane Foam backed, double density impact protector on the both sides of the ankle Internal toe and heel counter are layered under the leather Hiking boot style lace system with metal eyelets and top hooks Wrap-around rubber outsole reinforced with metal shank in the heel and a TPU shank in the Plantar Arch for enhanced rigidity PU coated leather shift area Reflective inserts on the rear of the boot Shock absorbing EVA midsole Mesh lined, anatomically profiled EVA foam footbed Note Anthracite/Red colorway is more Orange than Red.

Still breaking them in but so far I am very pleased with the Alpinestars CR-4 Gore-Tex XCR Boot. Tried them out on two mountain hikes over rocks etc, found them a good compromise between true hiking boots and riding boots. Love the style but did snag the seat cover on my DRZ400 with one of the lace hooks - not good. They have performed great on the few rides I have used them on with nice support and feel fine when standing on the pegs. Have not run into rain yet.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Revzilla was bang on with their video review of this jacket. Flows tons of air - felt cool on a 30 degree + Celsius. Have not tried it with the rain liner yet but the fit both with and without the liner is perfect. Revzilla is correct in the sizing suggestion - I was in between sizes and selected the smaller size which still allows room for a sweater under layer if needed.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I love the helmet, I am new to Dual Sport riding and am very happy with the design of this helmet, great air flow control, field of vision is superb. Still getting used to the flow control tabs with gloves on but with a bit of use I am sure I will find them easier to locate and adjust with the helmet on. Visor position adjustment is easy and seems fairly rugged.
Yes, I recommend this product.
