Purchased this as a replacement for an older Flex 2 jacket.

This jacket fits true to size and seems to have more features than the older version. With the outer shell installed I can ride comfortably down to 15 F. The sleeves are a bit bulky near the cuff and make it slightly difficult to pull on guantlet style gloves. I haven't worn it in the rain yet but if it is similar to the Flex 2, I might want to add some Camp Dry or Scotch Guard to the outer shell for heavy rain conditions. Otherwise I expect it to perform well, for most riding conditions up to heavy all day down pours. I had trouble with the zipper pulls on the series 2 and it appears the series 3 is using the same style zippers. Time will tell. All in all I really like this jacket for its' versatility. I can leave home here in the mountains warm and when I get to Phoenix it's easy to strip off the outer shell and ditch the liner and still be protected. Most of my cruiser freinds think it's over kill, but hey, it's my skin.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The Lexan chinbar is EPS lined and mounted with strong stainless-steel latches, so it passes the tests for full-face helmets of the European standard ECE-2205.

The VPS is easily operated by a large rubber coated slider on the left side of the Nolan N43 .

We found this helmet to be very round in shape and slightly large in size though acceptable. We like the flip down visor but if not careful when extending it goes past the down stop. We also like the chin strap ratcheting style clip. I wish all helmets had this feature. The helmet is very noisey and I would recommend ear protection on all but the shortest rides. The Nolan Trilogy is an "okay" helmet for the money.
Yes, I recommend this product.
