Firstgear Kathmandu Overpants Like the Nepalese capital, the Kathmandu from Firstgear calls out to the serious adventure-tourer. Chock-a-block full of features, these overpants have D3O armor in the hips and knees, while the bib and suspenders can be removed, depending on your riding style and mood. The leg opening is wide, making the Kathmandu easy to put on or take off over your boots. The insulated liner is easily detachable, allowing you to ride in comfort, no matter the weather. Features: Dynamic fit: Athletic, dynamic, out-of-the-saddle fit Overpant is sized to fit over your clothes Fully adjustable D3O T5 CE Armor in the hips and knees - delivers the same protection as standard CE foam armor, but is thinner and more flexible, resulting in a more comfortable, flexible fit Back of waist yoke, crotch, inner thigh and knee back features waterproof & breathable stretch fabric that adds flexibility and reduces binding Chamude suede knee patches minimize tank scratches 10-1/2 diagonal thigh vents catch the air when open and keep out the elements using YKK #5 rubberized zippers - vents can be held open by folding the cover inward to hook and loop closure Integrated short bib and suspenders that can be easily removed to your preference Insulated 2/3 length pant liner that is easily detachable Includes 10 pant-to-jacket full conjunction zipper that attaches to your jacket One time adjustable waist held in place by hook and loop closure Above the knee YKK #5 two way zipper easily fits over boots protected by an exterior storm flap with rain gutter to keep out moisture Knee and leg opening now enlarged to fit over off road boots Two front flap pass through pocket openings for gaining access to internal pockets protected by YKK rubberized zippers to keep moisture out One cargo pocket on right thigh for storage with seam sealed pocket bag to keep moisture out Internal storm gator with silicone grip and elasticized for a snug fit to keep moisture from traveling up pant leg Zippered fly-wide- gusset for easy on/off-waterproof and breathable 2 Year Limited Warranty Note: Jacket sold separately.

Have not had many opportunities to wear this yet. Purchased for long west trip. They do seem somewhat too baggy however I really don't care as I'm not wearing them for a fashion statement. I did have them on in a small rain storm and I was totally dry. I wear them mainly in Upstate NY but not in Florida where we have a winter home.
Bottom line is I think this will work just fine for my west trip.

These work pretty good. Good sound quality. I had issues at first with the settings. Kept getting wind noise from my wife's set. Had to go back into the settings to fix it. Now not as much wind noise unless there are strong cross winds.

Techno inserts on the knuckles and finger joints ensure protection as do the leather reinforced palms, the anti-take off wrist band and additional soft inserts in specific key locations. Despite the inclusion of so much protection, it in no way compromises dexterity or comfort thanks to elasticized material and pre-curved fingers.

I can't give a true evaluation of these boots yet. I have unusual feet so the fit is important and these fit good. Only wore them twice and so far they are comfortable. Not sure how they will do all day walking around though. Can't attest to the wear or the water proof qualities yet. I don't plan on wearing them on every ride especially when it's hot here in Florida. I usually wear police style high boots which provide some protection.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Wolfman Expedition Dry Duffel Bag Wolfman went all out on these duffels and came up with a great series of roll-top, 100 waterproof bags, designed specifically for motorcycle use. Wolfman upgraded the fabric to 22oz vinyl for the body and incredible 34oz for the sides and uses a waterproof webbing for the top opening to prevent water wicking into the bag. Wolfman also uses a new innovative design which allows the bag to easily expand, making loading and unloading a breeze.

I purchased two of these for a 5000 mile trip in July of '15. I used the smaller of the two on a weekend trip this winter. I didn't hit heavy rain however the contents were dry though a light rain. The bag mounted securely to the luggage rack on my Goldwing. These are new so I'm unable to comment on durability, however they seem heavy duty and through normal use should last for a long time.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This product was easy to install in my helmet. Seems to work good. Phone calls are easy to answer. I listen to books on my Ipod and Pandora music from my S-4. All are working fine.
