I bought this because I want protection but I don't like typical motorcycle clothing style. I wear this over a Thor Impact Rig and the 2 work great together to give me full protection. The style is plain but it's only motorcycle hoodie I've seen that doesn't have douchy tatoo style patterns all over it. The stripes are apparently reflective which is good. I do have a couple complaints though. The plastic toggles on the hood strings blow around at high speed and knock against your helmet. Very annoying. You have to tuck them inside the hoodie and hope they don't come out. Also the waist elastic is fairly loose. I would would like to see a tighter elastic or perhaps a drawstring. This would minimize the marshmellow man effect on the highway. I bought an XL. I'm 6'4, 210lbs and it fits great with my Impact Rig underneath.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I like good protection from my motorcycle gear without the usual cheeseball motorcycle style. These shoes/boots look great and seem extremely durable. I do have a couple gripes however. I'm 6'4 and don't like my footwear adding to that. These have a little bit more of a lift than a street shoe. My second gripe is that there is no system to keep the laces out of the way. I tuck them into the boots but they will come out eventually after dismounting and walking around a bit. I recommend these shoes on the basis of style, comfort, and protection though. I also like that the sizing is Euro because I'm a 12.5 and that's exactly what a Euro 46 is. Most NA shoe makers only make half sizes up to 11.5. After that it's just 12 and 13. So this shoe fits perfectly!
Yes, I recommend this product.

I love most Roland Sands Gear and this is no exception. Beautifully designed gloves. The XL fits me like a, umm.. glove. The detail and craftsmanship is stellar. The air flow is perfect, not too much, not too little. my buddy with icon gloves ( the one the you can operate touch screens with) always has cold hands while mine are fine. The gloves felt a little tight in length at first but they have worn in perfectly. The leather is thick in the right places but there's no hard knuckle armor like other more technical gloves.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought this jacket because I want protection but don't like typical motorcycle clothing. When I take off my helmet I don't want my outfit to scream "I ride a motorcycle!" This jacket fits that bill quite well while also providing good protection. The venting is good and the removable liner allows the jacket to be worn in warm or cool conditions. I bought the XL. I'm 6'4 210lbs and it fits well, perhaps a little big without the liner and wearing just a Tshirt. With the liner it fits perfectly and I could probably even squeeze a thin hoodie into the mix as well for added warmth. The wire surrounding the front pockets is a nice touch allowing for a little styled shaping.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought the XL as that's my size with most other gloves. The length is good but the gloves are too wide. Also the opening for the hand is quite small. You really have to squeeze your hand in there. Someone with thick hands would have trouble. The gloves look decent and they're cheap.
No, I do not recommend this product.

I bought this to wear under my Kevlar hoodie when street riding. I love this thing. Very comfortable and adjustable fit. I'm 6'4, 210 and I bought the L/XL version. It has good air flow due to the mesh base construction and you feel very well protected thanks to all the various armor. Flexibility and range of motion is much better than I imagined. You barely know you have this thing on.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Bell RS-1 Helmet - Solid Colors The all-new Bell RS-1 Solid Helmet bridges the gap between the top-of-the-line Bell Star and the value-minded Vortex with an amazing blend of mid-line price and high-end performance. Starting with a lightweight Kevlar/fiberglass composite shell, the RS-1 brings it with Bells vaunted Velocity Flow Ventilation system providing cool comfort, a super stable aerodynamic profile keeping the helmet still at speed, and the versatile Click Release shield system for fast, easy shield swapsnot to mention an amazing variety of tint and coating choices. The Bell RS-1 Helmet should be a game changer in the mid-high end helmet assortment. The RS-1 Helmet will prove its worth on track and street alike. Contour Cut Cheekpads and a plush, removable, washable liner cradle the head in comfort while Bells exclusive Magnafusion magnetic strap keeper makes flapping strap ends a thing of the past. All told, its one great helmet at a modest price. Need help with the sizing Watch our sizing video or give our Gear Geeks a call!

I've tried all other brands and I must have a "Bell" head because this helmet fits great. Snug but without too much pressure anywhere. I can wear it for hours without any problems. The way the screen pops on and off is very easy compared to other brands. I really like the stealthy look of the matte black. It has good airflow and the ability to crack open the screen just a little with the switch on the side is a nice feature. My only complaint (and it's a small one) is that it can be a little loud. Mind you, it's summer and I'm riding with all the vents open so...
Yes, I recommend this product.

Overall I'm quite satisfied with this product. It tints down to just the right level when in sunlight. It goes clear again quite quickly eliminating the need to raise the screen in tunnels. My one complaint is a slight design flaw when using the "air crack" feature on my Bell RS1. With the stock screen, flipping the switch forward will crack open the screen just a little to get some air flowing. With this screen only the left side open properly. You have to press of the black plastic piece on the screen to get the right side to crack open too. Not a huge deal but it would be nice if this was fixed. I have 2 friends with this screen and they have the same problem.
