Great for stopping wind, less so for warmth.

I have owned a pair of these for around six months, and have ridden around 1800 miles in them, and while they do do what they advertise, (stop wind, quite well actually) they do absolutely nothing for keeping your hands warm, so if it's cold enough that your hands would get cold just standing around, they'll probably get cold in these gloves.
With a liner (cheapish wool glove liners for military gloves), I've been wearing these down to just above freezing with minimal discomfort.
These gloves definitely deliver good quality in the sub-$100 range, and once I wear mine out, I plan to replace them with more of the same, assuming they haven't been discontinued by then.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I've been using these pants for a couple weeks now (800ish miles) as both standalone pants (with thermal underwear, for the cold) and as overpants for my everyday riding. They work well in either role. The venting is, while a little strange looking, very nice, and the waist adjustment is simple and effective.
The zip-up sides make it very easy for me to slip these on and off over my everyday work pants, and i imagine would make it easier for an EMT who doesn't want to have to cut off clothing to get to my legs in case of an accident.
My only complaint with these pants is that the armor "pockets" seem to be exactly on either side of where the adjustment should be for me, though they work fine in the lower position.

I was worried when i first purchased that at 6'2" and 240 pounds, this jacket would be overly tight, but it actually fits me quite well, and doesn't restrict my freedom of movement nearly as much as some other motorcycle jackets I've tried.
The armor "adjustment" snaps can be a bit hard to work with gloves on, and I personally would like a slightly higher collar (if it were half an inch taller in the back it would completely protect my neck up to the helmet), but other than those very minor issues, this is definitely not a purchase I regret in any way.

True to size, and a little wide. Very comfortable.

Of the few sets of riding boots I've used, these are in the top two for comfort (and I don't even know what the others were, a friend just wears the same size boot as me and loaned some to me).
They're easy to get on and off, warm enough without being too warm, and reinforced in all the right places.
A note about size: I normally wear a US10.5 shoe (my left foot is larger than my right, or I'd wear 10s) and the size 10 fits me perfectly, very snug, without feeling too tight.
