When I picked the Kriega R25 Backpack I was looking for a pack that I could use to go to school or on short trips that would be able to take a decent load and take the pressure of the pack off of my shoulders.
Cons: There are really not cons to this pack to be other than the price, and even still i think it's worth it.
Pros: This pack is great, I have fit all sorts of things into here that you wouldn't think would fit. I can fit 3 changes of clothes in here, I can fit a large jacket, I can fit my Bell 500 helmet in there, I've even fit an 18 pack of soda in there before just fine. When I wear it, I can't even tell that it's there and it's just so easy to take on and off because of the removal system that they have on here. Overall, this pack has been a god send and I would recommend it to anyone that need more storage than just there jacket pockets but doesn't want to add unsightly storage to their ride.

AGV Diesel Hi-Jack Helmet The Italian jeans company Diesel has teamed up with Italian helmet manufacturer AGV to produce a line of designer helmets. Diesel takes the helmet company in a different direction to their typical racing fare. The helicopter pilot style Hi-Jack helmet is dedicated to fans of customized equipment and riders who love life on the road while wishing to remain in line with the unconventional Diesel style. The attractive look, the range of chromatic variations in the graphics, and the unmistakable curve at the sides develop the aeronautic design that inspires the Hi-Jack helmet even further. The helmet is completed by the concealable visors in different tints that let the helmet be adapted to the needs and style of each and every rider and make his or her look even more decisive and rebellious. The AGV Diesel Hi-Jack was inspired from the world of helicopter pilots, it is intended to those who want an original helmet that does not remain unnoticed. The seductive look, the graphic colors, and the side curved parts accentuate the new aerospace design that inspired that helmet. This helmet features a retractable face shield, also available in smoke and irridium silver versions, which allows to adapt its usage to the motorcyclist style and requirements. Features Shell Fibreglass ACF Number of shells 2 Fabrics Dri-Lex with hygenic treatment Internal padding Removable and washable Visor ISV2 Anti-scratch Visor Multi-position, retractable shield tucks away into shell Visor mechanism Visor removal and replacement in a few seconds without the use of tools Retention ststem Micro-metric adjustment buckle Note Diesel Hi-Jack Helmet ships with clear faceshield only.

When I picked the AGV Hi-Jack Helmet I was looking for a good looking replacement/spare helmet to my Bell 500 that would protect me in the case of a crash.
Pros: Sitting on a table this is one of the best looking helmets i have seen. Also I love that it has a drop down visor integrated into the design. The helmet also feels very sturdy.
Cons: Where do i start, well first of all, this thing makes you look like Toad from Mario. Worst mushroom head look I have ever seen. It is way overpriced for what it is. Also, this is one of the more uncomfortable helmets that I have owned, granted I didn't ever really break it in, it was more uncomfortable out of the box then anything I have ever owned. Overall, this is a cool looking helmet if you want it to sit on a table somewhere in your house, but unless you like looking like a mushroom head I don't recommend this one.

When I picked the REV'IT! Hybrid WSP Gloves I was looking for an affordable, comfortable, low air flow pair of spring/fall gloves that I could also use in the summer if needed that looked good and would protect me if I ever went down on the bike.
Cons: The only thing I can complain about for these guys is that when the temperature dips into the low 40s or lower, they do little to protect you from the bitter cold.
Pros: Everything about these gloves is awesome. For the price you will not find a more comfortable, functional, or durable pair of gloves. The ribbed cuff makes putting on and taking off these gloves a breeze. The connect finger feature for phone use works flawlessly. there is some added reflectivity on the gloves just for a little added safety and I am confident that these gloves will protect me if needed. Do yourself a favor and pick up a pair!

 Bell Custom 500 Helmet
Bell Custom 500 Helmet
Bell Custom 500 Helmet In tribute to their founder, Roy Richter, Bell has released a line of helmets based on Richter's 500 design. Hailed by Bell as ground zero for the modern motorsport helmet there is no doubt that this original design formed by Richter himself in 1954 has given rise to an industry. The design is a classic that has been updated with modern protective technology by Bell engineers. By combining a custom fiberglass layup with a specially designed EPS foam layer, Bell engineers were able to craft a helmet that is at once light weight, narrow in profile, and DOT-compliant. The Custom 500 series comes in a variety of styles inspired by custom graphics which suit riders from all points along the style spectrum from understated to flash. These helmets rock with looks that are as good as their performance. Features Custom fiberglass shell Custom-quilted liner Chrome trim (graphic dependent) Integrated snaps for aftermarket shields and visors Padded chin strap with D-ring closure and strap keeper Five-year warranty Certification DOT Weight 880g

When I picked the Bell 500 Motorcycle Helmet I was looking for an affordable, comfortable, good looking helmet that would protect me if I ever went down on the bike.
Cons: Any cons that i could find on this helmet would be nit picking and are issues that you would find with any 3/4 helmet. First of all it is noisy, so what, no one buys this helmet for it to be quiet. When it's cold out obviously your face gets a little frosty too, again, all 3/4 helmets have that issue. The only other real issue that I have with it is that when there is a head wind it tends to have a parachute-like effect and it may lift up a little but my biltwell 3/4 helmet does the same thing and so does my non-dot half helmet.
Pros: In my opinion, this is a great looking helmet. i get compliments on it everywhere I go. Sure its not as flashy as the metal flake biltwells but to me it can compete in the aesthetics department with any helmet out there. Also it doesn't make you look like toad from Mario, which is a huge plus, it's about as stream-lined as you can go while still being DOT approved. As far as bang for the buck goes, you cant beat this helmet. i doubt there is a product on this site that delivers as much as this one does in that category. Sure in the case of a get off a full face will protect you better but I put 16,000 on my bike with this helmet in just over a year and I felt as though this helmet would get the job done if i needed it to. Airflow is great in this thing and it keeps you nice and cool in the hotter times of the year. All in all, you get so much more than you pay for with this one. Go ahead and let revzilla send one of these your way, you will be glad you did.

When I picked the TCX X-Street Waterproof Shoes I was looking for a comfortable pair of boots that that didn't make me look like a want to be lathered up biker and would protect me if I ever went down on the bike.
Cons: Even though these guys are great, they are a bit pricey. They are not the most comfortable boots right out of the box, but a little more then a year later they are just about broken in. Also, in a sport bike position the boots cut into your ankles and really start to hurt after a short while into a ride.
Pros: These shoes really do look great. They have a classic, grunge look to em that I really love. They are really comfortable on forward control and most mid control bikes. Also they keep your feet really warm when the weather is cold (35 degrees and up). They feel high quality and are very sturdy as well. Overall these boots are great and i think they are a very solid purchase. If you are willing to spend that kind of money, you wont be disappointed.

Icon Pursuit Perforated Gloves Fits like a glove... Youve heard it a thousand times, so have we. What actually defines how a glove should fit We think the new standard is Icons Pursuit glove. Supple sheepskin leather conforms to your hand. Plastic knuckle armor for protection, but hidden for a refined look. All over perforation for all day comfort. Reinforced goatskin palm to combat those nasty encounters with the asphalt. Try it on for yourself and then decide. This is what a glove was meant to be. Pittards sheepskin chassis for great fit Goatskin leather palm overlay for durability Integrated knuckle armor for protection Secure wrist closure keeps the glove in place Expansion gussets to improve overall flexibility Snap to keep gloves together while not in use

When I picked the Icon Pursuit Perforated Gloves I was looking for a comfortable, high air flow pair of summer gloves that also looked good and would protect me if I ever went down on the bike.
Pros: These gloves deliver in the air flow department. They kept my hands nice and cool on those long hot rides during the summer and they looked pretty good in the process, all at an affordable price point.
Cons: Although the gloves were cheap in price, they were also seem cheaply made. These are definitely the most uncomfortable gloves I've ever owned, it seems as though the fingers are cut in such a way that makes it hard to stretch your hand out completely. (I followed the size chart to find what size would suit me best). Also, the wrist strap felt like it would irritate my skin on longer rides. I don't know how confident I am that these gloves would protect me if I ever went down either, they just didn't feel sturdy enough to protect me if they had to. I even had some tears between perforations after only a couple months of use. As far as features go, there are none really to speak of other then the perforations. Overall this glove had very low bang for the buck due to the fact that there are other gloves in the same price range that would give you way more for the same price. Save your money on these ones.
