To top off this incredible list of feature the FX-41 boasts both DOT and ECE 22.05 safety ratings. This helmet is great for beginners and experienced riders alike, from ADV touring to dual-sport to hooligan street riding the FX-41 DS Helmet has all the bases covered. Features Aerodynamic shell design constructed using an advanced lightweight composite poly-alloy Flip-up, flush fit, quick release, single turn screw face shield with side covers Shield itself is optically correct compound curved, scratch-resistant and protects against UV-rays Shield can be removed to allow open face riding or for use with most goggles Shield can also be used without the visor with included side cover kit Smoke tinted inner flip down sun shield system with left side slide lever Helmet liner and cheek pads made with a hypoallergenic and antimicrobial nylon, all of which are removable and washable 17 points of ventilation with chin, side, forehead top and rear vents Retention system is quick release with sewn on ECE logo Provides ample ear cavity space for most speaker systems A clear coat finish to protect paint graphics Limited Lifetime Warranty Meets or exceeds both ECE 22.05 and DOT FMVSS-218 motorcycle helmet safety standards

I got this helmet as I liked the DS look, and the drop down sun shield. It looks cool, is comfortable, fits nicely, and the sun visor works great on bright glary days :) However it is cheap, and the cheapness shows thru in the design, and I don't think the cheapness makes up for the many flaws in the design. Starting with the strap system which has a great looking ratchet buckle, BUT, however you adjust the strap, (unless you have an enormous head# there is no way to secure the loose end, leaving a big end to flap around. Then there is that great open visor. The cut out is enormous offering great visibility, but visibility is compromised by the weird shape of the visor which puts a weird line in my field of vision right where the instruments are. Then there is the noise. This is by far the noisiest helmet I have ever worn, and given that I was wearing a MX helmet before, that is saying something. I think the noise is caused by the cut away base which puts your ears much closer to the base of the helmet. The other problem with that is that now the helmet doesn't sit well when you put it down. Unlike every other helmet I have seen with a flatter base, the cut away base allows the helmet to rock :# Another major issue is the stability of the helmet. At highway speeds this helmet is very unstable, with the helmet wanting to flip from one side to the other. Its a weird feeling, and not something that I have experienced with any other MX styled helmet at the same speeds.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Great compact waterproof pants and jacket. They fit almost perfectly over my normal summer riding gear. I wear a large AStar T-GPR Air jacket, and 34" AGV Willow leather pants. No frills, nothing more than you want in a compact wproof jacket and pants. Packs down real small, so doesn't consume all my 25 liter backpack. Only worn thru a light shower so far, and on a couple of cool but dry mornings, and have worked great. I have heavy duty waterproofs for the dark winter months, so these only need to get me thru a few unexpected summer showers, and so far they are doing great. Price is right, sizing is spot on, compact size when it packs down into its own bag is great. Another great AStar product :)
Yes, I recommend this product.

Icon PDX Rain Bibs Following the same design criteria as the PDX Jacket, the rain gear that doesnt suck, Icon brings you the PDX Bib. The same ripstop waterproof material but cut into a high backed same seam sealed bib. Full-length leg zippers eliminate the one-footed man in an dance contest all too common with waterproof over pants. Finally, Icon finished up the garment with some well placed cargo pockets and reflective graphic hits. Features Heavy duty nylon waterproof shell Premium waterproof zippers Adjustable BIB straps Reflective graphics Comfort mesh liner Cargo pockets Removable stirrups

Had these for a couple of weeks now, and used them a couple of times in light rain. No leaks so far. They are frikkin LONG though. I have the large Patrol pants, and they come up pretty big, so I tried starting with the medium to wear over my AGV Leather pants in the summer, but while the medium was to long, they were also to narrow around the waist, so I went to the large, which now fits around my waist, but is ridiculously LONG. Fortunately they have an adjuster on the ankles so I can cinch them up tight and just have baggy ankles. As with the jacket, they are more yellow than the fluroscent yellow / lime of the patrol jacket, but still plenty bright enough to be seen. I am 5'7" tall, with a 29" inside leg measurement, with a 34" waist. it seems like these are made to fit someone about 6"6" tall weighing in at 175 :( After all that, they are still a great waterproof pant, and I would recommend them to anyone else provided your not to broad.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Icon PDX Rain Jacket Following Icons mission to create real riding gear that doesnt suck, Icon gives you the PDX line. Birthed in the rain soaked laboratories of Portland, Oregon the PDX is Icons answer to Mother Natures fury. The pattern of the ripstop waterproof shell is cut full to fit over your normal riding gear. The unique roll-up hood seals against the neck during your ride, then unfurls to cover your helmet hair when you arrive at your destination. A couple of well placed pockets, complete seam sealing, reflective graphics and wind flap elimination straps complete the program. The PDX, keeps you dry while keeping you fresh. Features Heavy duty nylon waterproof shell Premium waterproof zippers Roll and tuck away hood Reflective graphics Comfort mesh liner Water resistant front pockets

Had this for a couple of weeks now, and used it a bunch on cooler mornings, and in some light rain. Its waterproof, so keeps me dry, and I have the yellow, which isn't as fluro. yellow as the Patrol Jkt, but is still pretty bright. It fits very large, so is a little big over my AStar textile jacket. Its also pretty bulky, so the jacket and pants pretty much fill up my 25 liter backpack, but they are light so not to much of a problem. Not sure why the jacket has a hood, it just gets in the way. It doesn't stow very well either. It doesn't flap around, but is a bit of a distraction at high way speeds. Zero airflow thru the jacket, which is good as otherwise it would let water in. It doesn't seem very breathable so far, but then if its pouring down, I would prefer to stay dry than have airflow and breahtablility. Not so much an issue in Pac NW, maybe a bigger problem if you live in a semi tropical state Overall a great jacket, probably the best on the market, but it could still be better ( less bulky, remove the hood, and mesh liner )
Yes, I recommend this product.
