I mounted this on top of the stock F800GS windscreen (12 model), and this is fantastic. The wind is now right around the top of my helmet in it's top most position. This isn't too big, and tucks away cleanly for those times when I don't want it. If you are on the look out for an aftermarket windscreen, this is probably the easiest adjustable system you can add.
Yes, I recommend this product.

A bit too gimmicky, but still the best value for the money

In preparing for a long ride, I was on the lookout for a jacket that performed well in all seasons. My criteria was that it should have good venting, plenty of water proof pockets, a thermal liners, 4/3s jacket, decent crash protection, and reasonably priced. I would have assumed that getting such a thing was easy, but looking around there were only few options. The budget Rev-its did not use cordura, Klim was simply too expensive and goretex on outer shell (which makes it too hot), BMW Rallye is $$$.
This jacket delivers on most fronts. There are a couple of nitpicks:
1) The water blader on the back is useless at 0.5L. Worse, because of all the straps around it, it adds to the clumsiness.
2) The rabbit pouch on the back need not have been detachable. It's too small to useful as a messenger bike, and all the zips just add to the bulk.
3) Rain liner can be a meh depending on how you look at it.
Overall, I am satisfied with the jacket. In contrast to others, I think the sizing is spot on. I first ordered a L, which I had to return for a M. I am 6', 180 lbs, 40" chest, and the medium is perfect for me, except for being a bit short in length.

These gloves give sufficient protection against the elements without adding much heft. Everyone's tolerance is different, I've been able to do 10 - 20 miles of highway riding at 0-5 C. While my hands weren't exactly cozy at the end, I survived just fine. Picking up this glove was in part a tradeoff I had to make. I choose the relative thin-less of this glove as an advantage. You'll lose some temperature tolerance compared to a thicker glove, but what you get for it is a much better feedback from the controls.
These gloves don't have much use right now since it's the summer, but otherwise have been great over the last fall, winter and early spring. Never leaked even a drop in strong downpours. They truly hold up to their claim.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Olympia X-Moto Pants Designed to coordinate with Olympia's X-Moto and GT jackets, this style can be worn as a stand alone riding pant or as full over pant. Its Mega Vent Panel System allows it to transition from solid body, to adjustable airflow construction in seconds, while front thigh vent panels lay flat when placed into self storage pockets. An authentic Cordura shell with 2000 denier Cordura reinforcement insures maximum abrasion resistance. Two front zipper pockets and two rear snap pockets offer extra storage for personal items. Foul weather rides are never a problem as these pants are also equipped with a waterproof / breathable liner that can be worn as wearable stand alone pants. Adjustable knee armor positions, stretch waist panels and EZ hem bottoms help riders achieve a customized fit. Features Outer shell constructed in 500 and 2000 denier Dupont Cordura MVS Mega Vent Panel system transitions the X Moto pant from solid body to adjustable airflow Waterproof liner pant Full side leg to waist zippers Removable and adjustable height CE approved MotionFlex armor at knees Cool mesh airflow lining Removable EVA compression foam at hips Custom Fit detailing at waist and bottom hem 3M Scotchlite reflective piping from waist to hem Relaxed tailored fit Four storage pockets 8 connecting zipper for jackets Leather reinforcement panels from inside thigh to hem bottom Comfort stretch knit at back of knees.

I am a skinny 6" person and I thought I'll try the olympia gear before I try on the euro stuff. To my surprise, the 32 inch xmoto fits me almost perfectly. The pant is very comfortable, and reasonably water resistant without the liner. I haven't used the venting yet, but there is enough anecdotal evidence to suggest that they work in summers.
Overall, great buy except for a minor nag. The leg armour needs more adjustability. It's in the right place, but positioned towards the outside. It should hold on during a crash, but it's annoying while doing long distances.
Yes, I recommend this product.
