I originally had a cheap glove I bought for $10 on ebay. So I don't really have much of anything else to compare it to other than trying on different other gloves at my local motorcycle store. I've got to say, it's heaps better than the cheap $10 one. For one, this glove is very comfortable. It's like slipping on a sock. They fit and conform to my fingers very well.
I bought a medium, and I usually buy a medium in anything else when it comes to glove. They're more snug and tight than other medium gloves but that's a good thing. You don't want loose material between your thumbs to cause blisters.
The Protection is pretty decent, if you happen to land on your knuckles, the padding will only help slightly. The palm protection is pretty decent and there is some rubber padding near on the top of your fingers. If you're looking for serious protection, this is not it, although the protection is pretty good for the price.
All in all, it's very comfortable, it gives you a good grip, and it's a great value for the price. If you're looking for a cheap glove that gives you some decent protection, then get it.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I normally wear a medium anything. I have a 39" chest and ended up with a small since revzilla didn't have a medium, and the specifications said that the small was from 38" to 40" for chest. When I first put this on, it was very snug. I thought I made the wrong choice. Good thing though, is that it does stretch out a bit over time. Plus you can take the vest liner out if you wanna wear more clothes underneath. The jacket's length is pretty short, I'm about 6' and the jacket ends just below my waist. The armpit area is very snug. If you've ever worn any of those muscle fit Abercrombie clothes, the armpit area feels just like that.
Style: It's a great looking jacket. Makes my shoulders look HUGE though, and can't take the shoulder or elbow armor out (if you wanna wear the jacket casually or want to replace the armor) so you're stuck with it. The SS logo in the front is a nice touch and the speed hump, while looks 'unique' adds some more protection and aerodynamics as well.
Protection: I was looking around for a great jacket that offered great protection at the lowest possible price. And out of the box, this, so far, is probably one of the best, if not the best jacket that offers the most protection at this price. I haven't yet found another jacket that has this beat. It has Knox CE rated back, elbow, and shoulder pads right out of the box. There is no chest protector though.
Air Flow: The airflow is decent with the arm vents. I haven't yet tested this out in super hot weather but on 70 degree days, riding around is not a problem and I still keep cool in this jacket. The vest liner can easily be taken out if you wanna keep this light.
Conclusion:
All in all, this is a great jacket. The jackets do run true to the size chart, although it runs a tad larger than other brands (Speed and Strength's small size is another brand's medium), so keep that in mind.
Excellent price, features, protection, and seems like it'll last a long time. Buy it.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Style: I personally think they look better than the pics. The pics make this look like a basketball shoe. The Velocity Boots are bigger, sturdier, and definitely feel way more protective than any shoe. I think this is a very versatile boot, you could probably wear them in just about condition (besides dressing for an interview). I even wear them with my business casual clothes.
Protection: These cut off a little bit above the ankle. Protection and sturdiness comes to mind when examining this shoe. It's a very well made shoe, and I feel it can last for ages.
Comfort: I think it's fairly comfortable. It's no sneaker, but I've walked a lot in it and my feet felt fine. It does get pretty hot in this boot, I don't tend to sweat much, but I do feel my feet get a little sweaty after wearing this.
All in all, it's a great shoe. Get it.
Yes, I recommend this product.

First off, these are my first pants I have bought specifically for motorcycle riding, so I don't really have much to compare it to. I ordered a small (regular size).
Size: The length of the regular one is about 32" which is perfect for me, and there is still plenty of space with the adjustable velcro at the waist (I have a size 28 waist). These fit pretty high up at the waist (watch the video to see) so adjust accordingly. I usually wear my pants below my waist and usually wear 28 x 30 jeans, but the regular fit is fine. The thighs are pretty tight, so this probably won't work well as overpants.
Protection: On the inside, you CAN REPLACE the hip pads, although the external hip pads you cannot replace, but which look cool and keeps you protected at the same time. Knee pads are pretty sturdy. They feel really low (at my shins) walking around, but in the riding position, they are perfectly placed. Takes a bit to get used to ride around with the pants on though, with the added knee resistance that comes with the knee pads. I feel protected in these. The knee pads cover all the way to the top part of the shin, and the lower back pad is a nice bonus.
Style: These look pretty good and aren't too obnoxiously motorcycle-ly, they actually look kinda like track pants to the untrained eye. I don't mind wearing these in public, they go really well with a textile or leather jacket.
Conclusion: All in all, great price for the features you get. Buy it now!
Yes, I recommend this product.
