I like Olympia gear. This is my third piece from them. Their gloves in particular are fantastic. Most mesh jackets I looked at skimp on protection, IMO. One of the reasons I bought this jacket is it has an articulated CE back protector as opposed to a simple piece of foam. It is still light on protection compared to my old Fieldsheer mesh, though. The jacket is very light. The jacket lining seems kind of fragile though no problems with it yet. This thing flows a ton of air. I can't wait to try it in really hot weather. The waterproof liner is a nice addition. I'm not wild about having to zip both the liner and the jacket when the liner is in but I recognize there's no other good way to make sure it is watertight/rainproof. I love the hi-viz/black version. Very sharp!
Yes, I recommend this product.

These boots are very well made, provide good protection and look great. They are EZ on and off which was important to me because I bought them primarily for commuting. They started out stiff but are breaking in nicely. The toe area is tall and initially I found it awkward getting my foot under the shifter. This is going away as the boots break in. I could possibly have gotten by with a size smaller, not sure, but if so it would have minimized these issues. Great boots. TCX is a premium boot at a good price in my opinion. I still have a pair of Oxtars that are probably my favorite boot ever.
Yes, I recommend this product.
