Now that I have been riding with the helmet for several weeks, I can honestly say that the helmet is great. The fit is perfect and the helmet is really light. The chin strap ratchet works very well and there is no wind through the bottom of the neck roll. It is very quiet but you can still hear the engine and traffic. The only problem is the pin lock shield. I am still experiencing fogging up and have to crack the shield. I do not know if I installed the pin lock shield or it is defective. I am in contact with Revzilla to correct the problem. I hope to be fully satisfied in short order.

This controller is great. The fitment is easy and is almost invisible on my bike. Riding with warmth is the best of the advantages and since it does not retract from the look of the bike, it is more than worth the price.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Overall, I am pleased with the suit. I works well and I am dry as a bone. The fit is a bit snug, especially in the legs but not so much as it is bothersome. I would recommend this product to anyone that rides in the rain like I do in the Pacific Northwest.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Firstgear's no one left behind policy ensures that riders of any model motorcycle can take advantage of the warming effects of heated apparel by choosing between either the 65- or 90-watt versions. Good for low-amperage bikes or passengers not requiring as much heat as the rider, the 65-watt units minimizes the draw on the bike's charging system. Efficient warming is dependent upon close proximity to the body. Firstgear reduced the amount of sizes while ensuring a good fit by incorporating stretch panels into the liner's design. The long-sleeve liner cocoons its wearer in warmth by incorporating heating elements across the upper and lower back, down the sleeves, around the neck and, to combat the effects of windchill, the liner concentrates heat in the front of the jacket.3 Make sure to check out our Firstgear Heated Gear Buyers Guide

So far, I am happy with the heater liner. I have worn the liner twice so far and it keeps me warm and the glove connections work well.
I am happy and a lot warmer.

I bought these pants on sale and am truly thrilled with them. Got the short ones because my waist is bigger and I needed the room. The pants are warm even without the liner. I am riding in 30-=40 degree weather and they keep me quite warm. everything else is just a bonus.

Firstgear Heated Gloves There's nothing worse than trying to operate your bike with cold, numb fingers. Bulky, unheated gloves make things even tougher by reducing feel, reaction time and complicating operation of the controls. Firstgear's Warm and Safe heated gloves for men and women feature heating throughout the entire glove, while maintaining the thinness of a summer glove. The gloves plug directly into the jacket liner, or an optional separate wire harness, allowing riders to adjust the temperature of the gloves independently of the jacket with a Dual Heat-troller. Features DC-heated, produces 15 watts of heat at 12.8 Volts (each glove) and should be used with a Firstgear Heat-Troller for optimum safety Y-Harness is required for use with Firstgear Heat-troller (unless you have a Firstgear heated liner, then this is unnecessary) Grade-A, top-grain, drum-dyed cowhide construction Porelle breathable, waterproof membrane Thinsulate layer Pre-curved fingers and finger-mounted, rubber faceshield wiper Elastic wrist and adjustable hook-and-loop gauntlet closure Reinforced protection in palm Reflective piping on top Make sure to check out our Firstgear Heated Gear Buyers Guide

Great gloves. The left seems to heat up more than the right but I truly love these gloves. I ride in Oregon and they are perfect. The left gets a bit warmer but my right hand is quite comfortable. Velcro straps work well and the leads are long enough to manage the connection with the gloves on. No more Freezing hands!!
Yes, I recommend this product.

The controller is truly easy to install to the battery and attach to the Bike. I have mine on the inside front of the left saddlebag so it is easy to control with a gloved hand. I am currently only using one side of the controller for heated gloves but will be getting more heated gear very soon.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought this harness with a dual controller and First Gear heated gloves. Works great but I would prefer if they were more of a Y. The harness is shaped like a V so there is an extra wire to deal with where it hooks to the controller.
Yes, I recommend this product.
