I wish I had just gotten more helmet the first time around. I previously had the EXO-700, and I think that is a better helmet. This one has a neat air pump feature, but it's just that. Neat. In day-to-day use, it's annoying to use. I just want to throw the helmet on and go! The rear vent/air broke in about a month. It banged against a table as I was holding it. It's cheap plastic. Does it's job, but broke too easily. The quick release face shield does release quickly, but it doesn't create a very good seal when closed all the way. The wind noise is actually painful on a highway after half an hour.
All that being said, Scorpion probably makes the (in my opinion) best budget helmets out there. The safety is good enough for me to trust a hard canyon run. Airflow is good. And the anti-fog visor is better than some of the more premium helmets anti-fog coatings, which hardly work from my experience.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Premium protection has been incorporated into the gloves at the areas of greatest vulnerability in a crash.

Obviously, these aren't going to save you the same way a set of gauntlets will, but these seem pretty sturdy. Good knuckle protection, GREAT airflow. They done seem to suffer from the "pinky is too long" issue that some gloves seem to have. Good palm padding, which helps a lot with vibrations on longer rides. Just did 100+ miles on them yesterday, actually. Good stuff.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I have to admit, I wish I had gotten the equivalent Rev'it jacket. My friend got one, and LOVES it. But I got this, thinking I would have enough money for a solid winter jacket. (I didn't)
This thing is great above 55 degrees, but below that and it gets... chilly. To ride around in the chilly 30 degree air here near D.C. this winter, I had to layer up with windbreakers and hoodies underneath, which was a very tight fit. But I got it done. In warm weather, this thing is amazing!
I rated it's features as average, because you can't zip in any sort of insulating liner. But that's most likely because it's a very sport oriented jacket, that already fits very snug. No regrets, I love this jacket.
Yes, I recommend this product.
