as the cold weather started to come on i started narrowing down the areas i needed to address for wind protection. my hands were at the top of the list so i did a lot of research and finally settled on the apex drystars. they are everything i was missing. they took i minute to get used to with the extra bulk but my hands have stayed toasty into the low 40s.
Yes, I recommend this product.

this product works great for what it's intended for which is keeping your face warm. however, in a modular helmet like mine the duck bill gets smashed and serves no purpose. not a huge issue. the big issue for me was the interference with my peripheral vision. i can no longer glance over my shoulder to check for traffic. i have to practically turn around before i change lanes. i've only worn it once and am not looking forward to having to wear it again.

after researching motorcycle boots for 3 weeks i narrowed it down to 4. these boots were last on my list only because i wanted something a little more flashy. after breaking down what was really important, i.e. functionality and protection, and after talking to the zilla rep, i decided to go with the dianese boots. they fit good. a little big but after adding a dr sholls insole they fit great and still have room for a thick sock if i want. only had them a couple weak but they are breaking in nicely. feel great on the bike, wouldn't want to walk miles in them. overall i'm happy with my choice.

REV'IT! Tornado Pants The REV'IT! TORNADO trousers combine maximum cooling, through air mesh panels, with abrasion-resistant fabric and CE-approved armor at the knees, to give you ultimate temperature flexibility in adventure touring trousers. Like the REV'IT! TORNADO jacket, the trousers are equipped with the all-new 2-in-1 liners that combine a 100 waterproof membrane with a thermal insulated liner, which are easily zipped out and stowed away for hot weather days. These trousers are so practical and easy to get on and off (with or without liners), thanks to the full length zippers, that you're going to wonder how you ever lived without them. REVIT PROTECTION FEATURES Outer shell polyester rib, PWRshell mesh, polyester 600D, PWRwax 500D, PWRshell 500D stretch, polyester dull 600D, Lorica reg Insulation detachable 2-in-1 thermal liner and membrane Waterproofing detachable hydratex G-liner (5000mm H2O) Breathability detachable hydratex G-liner (5000g/m2/24hrs) Composition outer shell 86 polyamide, 14 polyester lining 100 polyester membrane 100 polyamide (100 polyurethane coating, insulation 100 polyester) Protection Knox Flexiform CE protection at knees, perforated EVA foam at hips Visibility laminated reflection at upper legs and calves ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit tour fit, regular Adjustability adjustment straps at waist, adjustment tab at ankles Ventilation ventilation panels at legs Features short connection zipper, elastic at waistband, adjustable protector pockets, easy entrance zipper Pockets slit pockets NOTE The Tornado Pants run 1 size larger compared to other REV'IT! Pants and to what the size charts indicate. If you measure up to be a size 52, you should go with a 50 instead.

i bought these to cover and protect from my work pants from any filth picked up from the road as well as something i could wear over some shorts to stay cool and not worry about my flesh being torn off. they work great for both.
