The fit and finish of the cord is pretty good—I've only had it a couple weeks, but it doesn't seem like I'll have any trouble with durability.
My only (minor) gripe is that the cord is pretty long. This might be good for some people, but mine is just used to go from the socket by my knee up into my jacket where I keep my phone, and is about a foot and a half longer than necessary (even when coiled).

These fit a little tighter than my Icons, but the good amount of precurve of the fingers (mostly) makes up for it. They block the wind completely, but they're not very thickly padded so they're not the best for a legitimately cold day. I still like them for what they are, though—windproof gloves for a slightly chilly day.

I love these shoes—they feel sturdy enough for me to be confident they'll protect me more than plain old sneakers, but they don't look completely out of place with normal street clothes. When I ride my bike someplace, I don't like to be "that guy" who's all decked out in crazy, loud-logo motorcycle gear. I like to blend in and look like a normal non-motorcycle guy on the street, and these shoes help me accomplish that.
One thing, though—I had to exchange these to get the next size down from what I'd normally wear. They're pretty wide, too, and I feel like they're slightly over-sized. I wear pretty thin socks, so maybe that's part of it, but I still feel they're a little bigger than the size suggests. After sizing down, though, I'm still in love.

I love this jacket. It's sturdy, has pockets exactly where I need them and it looks great. On top of the lining making it feel really high-end, the perf panels offer great ventilation and the stash pocket is perfectly placed to quickly grab cash for tolls or gas.
The one very minor gripe I have is that the body is a little wide and the cuffs of the sleeves are a little tight. While this could be good if I liked my gloves on the outside of my jacket, I'm more of an inside-the-sleeve kind of guy. The size of the jacket at least makes it very easy to slip a hoodie underneath on colder days, as well as making it not too difficult to slip in the armor (which also seems great). The armor is a little tricky to get in an out, but I can't imagine how they'd improve on it.
All in all, love this jacket. Highly recommended.

I love this helmet. I started with an AFX FX-100 because I thought the flip-down sunshade was a sweet feature, but as soon as I slipped this bad boy on I knew it was "the one". It fits so much better and the interior is very soft and feels great even crammed up against my face. It's not very loud on the highway and the vents do a good job of keeping me cool, and overall I'm very happy with my purchase.
My only gripe is that it fogs up almost instantly the second I stop moving. I'm not a heavy breather or anything, but the second I'm at a red light I have to flip the shield up to not go instantly blind. A pin-lock shield might help where the breath deflector has so clearly failed, but the helmet is so wonderfully comfortable and sturdy it makes up for its tendency to fog up.
