I purchased the Scouts to replace a cheap entry-level boot that was falling apart. These have been great boots and seem to wear very well. I have had no issues with them thus far and the quality at this price point is top notch. As they are a waterproof boot, the Air Flow rating does get a low score...you don't buy a waterproof boot for airflow, though. I wear them with a heavy hiking sock and though my feet do get warm in the summer, I find it tolerable enough. They are not a flashy boot and the styling is very utilitarian which some may find bland. I dig the function over form style, personally. Also, they have a healthy lugged sole that provides plenty of grip on the pegs and while walking around off the bike.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought these pants to match my X-Moto jacket. They look great and the material and craftsmanship is solid. The main issue with these pants is that I have very little confidence in the knee armor providing any protection. The pockets holding the knee armor in place shift around far too much. I will likely purchase a separate set of knee guards to wear under them. Annoying and really I would expect more out of mid-range gear like this. Another minor complaint is the pant length requires a tailor. Fortunately they accordion enough once my boots are on that I can wear them until I have them tailored. The waist is sized true, or maybe slightly small. They are snug on me. NO size adjustment is included or available, so buy the size you need and don't eat too many cheeseburgers!
Yes, I recommend this product.

A zip off integrated back pack with hydration bladder and expandable zip off luggage system offer major versatility. The X Moto is also equipped with a sporty, waterproof / breathable, two stage, Thermolite lined, inner jacket to deliver multi season, all weather riding comfort.

I was able to pick up the X-Moto jacket (and pants) on closeout and I'm really very pleased with the quality of the jacket. I'm relatively new to motorcycles and I am now replacing my original set of entry-level gear with better quality items. The X-Moto jacket appears to be very well made. Time will tell how it holds up, though I suspect it will wear very well. With the liners in, the fit is perfect for me and with the liners out, it may be only slightly too large. I suppose that's to be expected, though. The waterproof inner liner doubles as a nice looking jacket when removed from the shell. I'm looking forward to breaking the jacket in as it is fairly stiff (as all textiles seem to be). I have not had an opportunity (or need) to open the vents on this jacket. The ventilation does appear to be enormous, though. It should be very comfortable in the heat with all of the giant vent panels open and stored. Clever, effective design. Armor seems decent enough and the jacket has lots of storage and pockets. The rear zip-off pouch is massive. The hydration pack is a little gimmicky, in my opinion, though it seems to be well made and does have the utility of a spare half-liter of water. It zips off easily and the jacket looks fine without it attached. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase and Revzilla shipped it super quick.
Yes, I recommend this product.

After reading many reviews mentioning this helmet was sized on the small size, I bought one size larger and I'm glad I did. It's still a little on the snug side, but it will likely loosen up as the cheek pads break in.
I compared this helmet to my friend's MSR Xpedition and they appear to be identical except for interior finish and face shield (I like the MSR shield a bit more).
The visibility is excellent, compared to the modular Bell this helmet replaces.
Noise seems pretty reasonable.
Others have complained about the wind resistance at speed feeling like it's going to twist their head around, but I haven't noticed this yet during a lane check at normal speeds (70mph...I ride a small DS).
Overall, I'm very pleased with the quality, fit and finish. I went with the Hi-viz and it certainly is retina-searing. Time will tell if the color fades.
Yes, I recommend this product.
