As stated above, this bag will hold an Arai SAI quite well. The bag itself is nice, the interior is really soft and seems like it will keep the visor from getting scratched. I use it for a clear visor in case I get caught out at night, and the bag fits well in my backpack. It also has a kinda dorky strap to wear it around your waist, which I have yet to try.

I received mine in the mail today, and just put it on. It took me about 30 mins to do it. I got the carbon fiber one, I like the way it goes with my white (tricolor) CBR500R. I have yet to take out the silencer, which I will do soon, but even with it in the bike sound better, and definitely looks a lot better.

I added this to my T-GP-R jacket, and it is hard to notice that it is in there, which is definitely a good thing. The protector is much more substantial than the dinky foam padding the jacket came with. For the price, this is a no brainer. I do wonder if the more expensive air back protector would make a difference, as this one doesn't have all that much airflow.

I am 5'10", about 185 pounds and I ordered a size large. It fits perfectly with enough room to wear a jacket or a hoodie underneath when it gets cold out. The airflow is superb, and helps so much during the summer. I got the white jacket, and I think it looks great, especially with my RX-Q Dawn helmet.
The jacket is very comfortable, even with the addition of the back and chest protectors. The liner also does help block some wind, although even with it in, there is significant amounts of airflow.

This helmet is great! Super high quality and very comfortable. The liner is also very comfortable. It fits a lot tighter and closer to my face than my old HJC CL-16 helmet, but not uncomfortably so. The graphics are also really high quality. The airflow is much much better than my old helmet, and it is also significantly quieter. Loving this helmet.

I got the Dark Smoke visor for my new RX-Q Dawn. The visor is great, and the optical quality is quite good. The peripheral vision is also really good. Additionally, the shield isn't so dark that I can't wear it at nighttime if I forget to bring a clear visor.

I got this as my first helmet, because it was very well priced, and was also up to the Snell 2010 standard. While it isn't the nicest or fanciest helmet, with mediocre airflow and it is also a bit noisy, especially on the freeway, it was well worth it and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a basic or a first helmet.

I got a Dark Smoke shield with the anti-fog coating to use on my HJC CL-16 helmet. The anti-fog works really well, almost as good as the Pinlock insert on my clear shield. It is also not too dark that it makes it impossible to ride with if I get caught out after dark. Plus the dark smoke looks good with my black helmet.

As the title says, I got these to wear under my Alpinestars SMX-2 gloves. The gloves are size large, and so are the liners, and they fit very well. They also work great at keeping my hands warm on cold days and at night. Definitely good to have around.
