everything about this jacket rocks. its a little heavy, and it is an absolute heat-trap, but other than that, its just about perfect.
the only thing is, they run big without the liner, so you might want to go down a size.

it looks great, is really light, but i find that the elbow armor is really uncomfortable as it is not padded at all. its got amazing airflow, almost too much. however, it is not water resistant at all.
if its raining, put a different jacket on. you'll be soaked to the bone in minutes if you dont.

these gloves seem pretty durable, they feel nice, but i find the armor to be less than expected. the only other thing is that they can make your hands really cold when riding on a cool night.
other than that, they are great starter gloves, but not good hardcore gloves.

these gloves look great, feel great, and are extremely durable. they have good airflow, awesome knuckle armor, and are really nice in the summer.
my only comlpaint is that if you wear them for exsessive amounts of time (like 10+ hours a day for 6 months), they will really start to smell bad.
i had to retire my pair for the reason stated above, but i found an upgraded version of them and bought those instead. these are twenty times more durable than the upgraded ones. the knuckles on the new ones are uncomfortable at best.

this jacket is extremely durable, looks amazing, has decent airflow, fits great, is definetly an eye-catcher, and is made by one of the best brands out there. the reflective tubing it has is really cool, especially since it matches the tubing on their "accelerator" series of gloves. the pockets are in all the right places and can hold tons of suff, the liner is super comfortable and keeps you nice and warm on those cool days, and the protective armor is perfect.
my only complaints are that it weighs an absolute ton (if you put it on a thick plastic hanger, it will severely bend and warp), it can get hot really fast, and that the surface leather wears out easily on the elbows.
i bought this jacket at a motorcycle shop 2-5 years ago, and it would still work perfectly had i not outgrown it (in fact the reason im on here was to buy a larger on of these, but sadly they are sold out). the only other thing i can think of is that the things that hang on the zippers that say "cortech" break off fairly easily.
this is one of the best jackets on the planet; i hope they restock them soon.
also, sorry about the poor punctuation and grammar, its just 4:30am and im not in the mood to go and correct it all.
