This is now my back protector of choice. Great price, flexible, good air flow, and it fit perfectly in my Icon jacket (S). Word of warning, it will off-gas and smell of strong chemical for a day or two after unpacking but that subsides.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This tiny case is almost more trouble than its worth. Hard to zip, hard to add onto a Kriega pack in a location where it is accessible but doesn't get in the way, and almost too small to be of use for anything except keys (which can just as easily be clipped on the main pack). Tough and durable, however.
No, I do not recommend this product.

I highly recommend this jacket for fall/winter/spring riding. I live in Northern CA and the temperature in the winter varies from 35-65 degrees. I purchased this jacket to handle that range, including rain. I couldn't be happier. I used to own the Oympia AST, which I loved. To replace it, I decided to gamble on the Fury and find it to be even more versatile.
There are a lot of pockets and they are all stitched and folded in such a way that rain water would never enter them. There are 6 vents for heat, and they are large. I would grab this jacket for touring before my Rukka, which is 3 times the price. The Fury has 3 layers: thermal, rain liner, outside jacket. I tried to use the thermal only inside the outside jacket but the zippers don't line up. For moderate temperatures in the 50's, I just use the rain liner without the thermal liner. The rain liner actually breathes very well and gives sufficient warmth and wind protection.
The color of this jacket is neon yellow, not lemon yellow as I read somewhere else. I'm sure there are different shades of neon, but I assure you, this is neon yellow. It seems to have the desired effect in traffic. People look right at me and stop in their tracks.
This jacket has a learning curve with it's features and the time it takes to zip up. Once I sorted out what layers I need for what weather, It goes much quicker. Also, there is a storm collar that attaches to the top which I still haven't used but it gets very wet here, so I'm sure it will come in handy. I keep it stowed in the back pocket of the jacket. Scorpion did an outstanding job.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is absolutely the best looking jacket I own. It's pretty roomy, if you order your regular size. If you are between sizes, go down a size. I wear this jacket if there is going to be a change in weather (this morning was 65-68 degrees and tonight it will be 51 degrees#.The liner will take me down to about 48 degrees, but that's about it. I would prefer the Olympia AST if it's going to be 40 or below.
The jacket does have the ability to regulate my temperature and keep me comfortable in heat or cold. It is windproof, also. There are a lot of reflective things about it and I have been told that I am extremely visible #I own the solid black version). The arms are long and easy to adjust. The zipper is a little tricky but to me, that's a small concession.
I waited a long time to purchase this jacket and am very happy with it....that being said, I'm pretty sure that I'm paying for research and development rather than features on the jacket.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I have the Armiina jacket, not this one, but I wanted to comment on Rukka sizing. I ended up with a jacket one size smaller than my measurements indicated and it fits perfectly and is even somewhat relaxed. The quality of Rukka is outstanding and better than any other jacket, in my opinion. It is very comfortable, as well. Measure, then order one size smaller.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I also own the Adina, but these are my favorite pants for everything. The thermal/rain liner is comfortable and does not change the fit all that much. With the liner, I am warm down to 48 degrees and use heat packs in the zip knee compartments if I'm going long distances at a high speed. The vents at the top of the knee take me up to 85 degrees comfortably. I have used these pants almost everyday for 2 years and someone just asked me if they were new pants. I wash them inside out in a technical laundry soap on cold, dry on low, and they still look brand new. I finally ordered a high quality full suit from another brand for touring, but I really wonder if I will ever stop wearing these.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Icon El Bajo Boots El Bajo - literally translated it means The Short One. Short perhaps in overall height, but never in performance or steez. Built on the same Goodyear welt bottom unit as its five-buckle Elsinore brother, El Bajo provides all the OG moto-presence but in a reduced two-buckle silhouette. Metal post fasteners, heavy top-grain leather chassis, and reinforced toe box and heel make for a serious piece of riding footwear. The Icon One Thousand El Bajo - always up to the challenge.

This boot is an excellent blend of style and protection. It takes a couple rides to break in the leather up top, but after that, they are 100% comfortable for walking around and riding. In regard to the prior reviews that discuss shifting ability in this boot, just take a look at it. It is a large cruiser style boot, not a racing boot. When I switch to these boots, I know that I will have to swing my foot another inch under the shifter and I adapt within a couple blocks. I love these boots and appreciate the solid construction that covers the toe box. I have had multiple compliments on the boots.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I love these pants as much as D-dry. The one concern I had was temp range, considering that they're Goretex and I wanted them as a winter pant. My first ride was with the thermal layer in, at 52 degrees, at night. I was sweating by the time I got home. Also, the liner is NOT flexible, so if you are between sizes and planning on using for cold weather, size up. These were too snug with the liner. The same size in D-dry pants, with liner, fits me perfectly. Also, the cut on these is more curve hugging, but good looking. Without the liner in, my ride from 52-70 degrees was incredibly comfortable. I would wear them up to 75 degrees before switching over to my vented D-dry's. Nice stretch to these pants, too, while I'm on the bike. I haven't used them in rain, yet, but they have a nice lining inside and I'm confident they will be fine. Worth every penny.

Outstanding pack. I adjusted it to the small level (I'm 5'5") and set up the harness so I can just clip it on as soon as I put it on my back. It is so incredibly comfortable that sometimes I forget to clip it on and realize in the middle of the ride. The main compartment has plenty of space for my assorted tools, an iPad, a pair of shoes and my jacket liner. I used to use the Kriega 20L, which is fantastic for touring: it clips right onto the bike. I highly recommend that bag, as well.
