Fit was a little snug with my regular size. After wearing for a while, they seem to have stretched out and are quite comfortable. They are a bit warmer in summer than a pair of mesh-type gloves i have, but they offer a LOT more protection, and they keep my hands warm enough on cool mornings so far. The conductive patches on thumb and index finger work really well on my iphone. So far, after wearing them for over 3 months they have shown no wear and tear. I'm very happy with this pair of gloves.

i bought this low-profile SMH10R to fit on my new C3 helmet.
The installation went smoothly, the external battery was easy to mount inside the back of the helmet, so i only have the small headset on the outside of the helmet.
I didn't give it a durability score, as i have only had the unit a couple weeks. I will revisit and give a durability review later this year. -if it's like my older, still working SMH-10 unit, then it will prove to be very durable indeed.
The sound clarity is excellent, and volume is great for calls. Music tends to be a little softer, but it IS a motorcycle after all, and i DO like to hear the motor and surrounding traffic :)
As for ease of use, i gave a 4/5, ONLY because the older jog wheel was SO easy to use. This works great, i'm just not used to it yet and it's not as simple as the jog wheel. As i become accustomed to it, i will revisit and review it again.
All in all, an excellent product! I've ridden in some strong rains with it, and it has worked flawlessly so far in all conditions. it also pairs seamlessly with my older SMH-10.
I would recommend this Bluetooth headset/intercom device to anyone in the market for one.
Yes, I recommend this product.

i bought this clamp kit to put on a new helmet for my son, so i could swap my SMH-10 bluetooth unit between two helmets, depending on who i had riding pillion.
The clamp attached to the Shoei helmet perfectly, and the boom mic and speakers were a breeze to mount.
I'm very impressed with all of Sena's products, they're easy to use, well made and install with no surprises.
Although i just bought and installed this SMH-10 Clamp, it is the same as the original clamp which i know to be very durable and weather resistant (it's still on my old, secondary helmet) . So i gave this SMH-10 clamp a high rating for durability.
I will be (and i guess i am) recommending this product to others!
Yes, I recommend this product.

Two days after buying these gloves i had to ride in a cold Nor'easter situation. About 50°F and torrential rains. I couldn't ask for a better glove, especially for the money. My hands stayed dry and didnt' get cold even riding on the highway.
I've worn them since then on cold mornings (in the mid 30's) and though my fingers felt cool on my 20 minute highway commute, they weren't numb like they get with my other warmer weather gloves. I rated them for Durability at a 4 outof 5, as i haven't had them that long. If they wear like my other AGV gloves I will be able to change my Durability rating to a 5 of 5. I really like these gloves, they're well made, and very comfortable on my hands. They are bulkier than my mesh type gloves, but not much more than my 3 season gloves. They're a great buy!
