As with all Firstgear equipment, these overpants are very well desgined with lots of functions. The pants are very customizable with adjustible pads, removable suspenders, jacket zipper etc. The ventilation is good and these can be worn with liner down to near freezing temps.

Yes, I recommend this product.

These gloves work exactly as advertised, but be warned that you need to keep another pair of gloves if the temps get over 70. These gloves are very warm and breathe well as long as it's cool outside. The waterproofing works very well and I'm very pleased with the construction.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Arai Signet-Q Helmet - Solid Colors The Signet-Q takes all the favorite features of the RX-Q and create a whole new series based on all the successes. On the outside, the Arai Signet-Q Helmet looks very similar to it's namesake, the RX-Q, but on the inside you can see and feel the difference. A longer shell shape on the Arai Signet-Q Helmet gives 5mm more space front to back allowing for a larger number of heads to fit comfortably. The shape of the Arai Signet-Q Helmet releases forehead pressures and eliminate hot spots for a more comfortable fit every time. This shape works best for riders with a long oval headshape. Additional Features of the Arai Signet-Q Helmet Both the top vent set and side exhaust cowls are direct carryovers from the RX-Q Brow vent ducting redirects to flow air across the temples DDL-4 exhaust vent to the 10mm wider eye port (5mm on each side) Long Oval Fit SAI MAX-Vision Brow Vent shield Clear Pin Lock Max-Vision Brow Vent pinlock lense included. Elongated shell adds 5mm from front to back Long-Oval shape helps prevent Hot-Spot Multi-Density Single piece EPS liner Removable, replaceable, washable interior Dry-Cool Surface material for rapid displacement of heat and moisture away from your head and into the ventilation airflow for added comfort while riding and a quick dry between rides 5mm peel-away temple pads adds another level of customization, giving the helmet interior a little extra width when needed Enhanced for customizable micro fitment interior without the need to purchase extra interior components New FCS (Facial Contour Support) cheek pad design Innovative and exclusive spring support adds just the right amount of pressure when needed while being worn Meets or exceeds Snell and D.O.T. standards

This helmet is the first helmet I've had that I can wear for several hours without forehead pressure. The pinlock system prevents fogging just as advertised and the visor button makes it easy to operate, even with winter gloves. The ventilation is good and the brow vents really make it. I've ridden in 85 degree and 40 degree houston weather back to back days and it was equally comfortable for each.
Yes, I recommend this product.
