Bought this jacket on sale for 129 and had 30 dollars in zilla cash to apply for 99.99 haven't found a better bang for the buck. This jacket looks nice even my wife likes it! Airflow is top notch actually keeps you cooler than without a jacket because you get the airflow without the sun on your skin. I wear protection year round but have felt the need to go without it when it is above ninety that will not be happening in the future. Protection I did not give the highest rating because I don't believe this armor is the highest rating but definitely more than non motorcycle specific clothing. Jacket is very light very comfortable and stylish. Went with white-grey-black for the higher visibility. Definitely recommend this jacket

These are needed to custom fit your helmet and in my opinion are waaaaay overpriced in fact they should either be selectable when you order your helmet or they should be in the box when you receive it. This is a reasonable expectation when buying a helmet in this price range.

Shoei Neotec Modular Helmet Evolving on previous designs, Shoei has revamped its modular helmet style with a streamlined and attractively sculpted shape that conveys the feel of freely moving through the outdoors in the Neotec Modular Helmet. Overall shell size is kept compact by incorporating the internal sun visors open/close mechanism inside all ventilation mechanisms are shaped and positioned in such a way as to reduce any possible drag. A redesigned aerodynamic spoiler also helps to cut lift, reducing neck strain on long, cross country rides. In the Shoei Neotec all these features combine to create a premium helmet that excels in appearance, protection, comfort and performance. The Shoei Neotec Helmet's chin bar is connected to the same axis point and mechanism as its shield, minimizing extra parts. This also enables simultaneous closing of the shield with the chin bar, which is then held in place with an easy-open lock release button. The shield lock system offers secure closure or the ability to keep the shield slightly open to allow for increased airflow. With the Shoei Neotec Helmet, Shoei now includes a built-in sun shield, the QSV-1. The visor tucks neatly away beneath a non-intrusive shell built into the helmets liner, and can be lowered with the easy control of a sliding button. Shoei Neotec Helmet Features Face Shield Features Easily operable lever mechanism Anti-fog, anti-scratch, 99 UV blocking New Pinlock-ready CNS-1 faceshield Wider and taller than the CX-1V that it replaces Includes Pinlock insert 3D injection molding process ensures a distortion-free view Improved Ventilation and Aerodynamics Newly designed vortex generators pull air through helmet 276 more airflow than Multitec Added inlets and outlets Vents are flush against helmet to maintain aerodynamics 5-Ply Shock-Absorbing Fiber Shell 3 shell sizes AIM Multi-Composite construction Lightweight yet strong Shell-integrated spoiler reduces lift and drag during high-speed riding Dual EPS Liner Multi-density EPS for optimal protection Two vents funnel fresh air through the EPS liner Dual liner channels route and disperse air evenly throughout the helmet EPS liner in chin bar All new interior Fully removable 3D interior liner Top center pad is removable and washable Improved cheekpad design allows better fit with eyeglasses Included chin curtain can be inserted into the chin bar to reduce turbulence and noise All Neotec Helmets sold in the US have a double D-ring closure Note Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States

Awesome helmet I was skeptical after my experience with another modular that gave me so much forehead pain I couldn't stand to wear it more than an hour. Comfort is fabulous I went on a three hour test ride the day after I got it and it was as comfortable when I got home as when I first put it on, I expected a fair ammount of leakage but this baby is sealed up better than my full face. Sena SMH 10 mounted up easily. Still cold up here but I opened the vents up to check air flow and it is tremendous. With the vents open it is quite noisy but it is due to a huge ammount of air getting directed into your dome. Sun shield is darker than any others I have seen and drops down low to cover your full range of vision. The pinlockmsystem works great now I just need pinlock for my glasses. This is the most expensive helmet I have ever purchased and my first Shoei Iam definitely converted and the money was well spent.

This product is ideal for using your Sena on multiple helmets. I used the wired mic on a full face Joe Rocket RKT201 and it is absolutely ideal and the speakers fit nicely behind ear pockets. The price seems very reasonable for this set up. Not sure about durability but seems very high quality.

The sound level and quality is outstanding. Works great with iphone five and Siri is completely functional with the unit. I can pair it by bluetooth to my stereo system on my BMW and still have phone usage. From what I hear many other systems can only pair with one source at a time.
Unbelievably easy installation and easy to use. The voice activated answer feature is great to. Just say hello and the phone answers. When speaking with my wife tonight at 65 mph she said it sounds better than my Motorola bluetooth that I just use for in the car.
I used this on a Joe Rocket rkt201 and bought the wired in mic to install on it. Iam going to use the boom mic on a modular helmet I plan to buy such as Shoei Neotec. I like that you can just shift the power module from helmet to helmet and not have to bty seperate units for each helmet.
Looking forward to getting this for my sons helmet and using the intercom system.
This is by far the best bang for the buck out there the volume is more than you can really tolerate and the clarity is exceptional from my phones ipod.
Not sure how duarble it is but hoping for the best.
Buy it you wont be disappointed!

These pants feel very well made and I think they will last a long time. I am 5'5" and wear 32-30 jeans. I was worried about the inseam so I ordered the short as stated in other reviews that caused them to ride up in the seated position leaving the bottoms of my jeans exposed. If I had it to do over again I would order the regular length. They are the perfect length when off the bike walking around just need that extra length for the ride. The knee protection seems like it will offer some protection and the hip area feels more protected definitely better than jeans. They are definitely a cold weather pant I have used them down into the twenties and feel very comfortable but if you wear them around the house for long you will be on fire even with the lining removed. I would like a second pair just to wear as pants with shorts under them in the spring and early summer. I got the medium supposed to equal about a 34 waist so I could comfortably wear them as an overpant and I can do so with or without the liner.

Totally satified with all my recent heated purchases from revz and the Gerbing's products. I bought the jacket liner the gloves arrived today. Usually my riding is over at the mid 30's not this year. These gloves are bulky but what we have here is a true winter glove. From the feel of them you could do quite well without the heat until the lower 30's. they like the liner heat up in under 10 seconds. The gauntlet is small and hard to get over the sleeve of my leather armored jacket. I wish we had some genuine knuckle protection and palm protection it just feels slightly more padded in these are.
For me the size chart worked perfectly and the fit is right on for the chart. In other gloves I wear a large but in these I take a small. Use the size chart and you should be all good.
If you have any interest in heated clothing and winter riding buy the Gerbings products you will not regret it.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I cannot imagine having this heated gear running on maximum all the time so this is absolute must have either single or dual controller. It is so essential I can't imagine why it is sold as a seperate high dollar piece.
It is simple to operate and you can feel the detent click as you adjust to help you know where you are in the range. It is easy to move accidentally however it would be nice if it locked or held in place where you set it better.

A good thing to have I like the belt clip being clip on and not something that requires slip the belt through. Had the magnetic holder open up on me today as I was struggling to adjust temp under my jacket. You can clip your controller anywhere including your pants pocket butmto me that did not feel comfortable. You might as well buy it.
