I got the dark smoke to try and cut down on glare. This visor fogs way too easily. I have it in a signet q and its unusable for me. Fogs even at speed. I would recommend getting the shield with the pinlock insert or just getting the pinlock insert itself in whatever color you want. In hind sight I feel that would be a better solution. Especially considering prices on each.
No, I do not recommend this product.

I use this pant as a commuter and for long trips. I've almost stopped using it for short daily runs because it is bulky and a pain to put on. I got some suspenders from suspenders dot com. You need suspenders to hold them up. There is no send in having hip pads if the pads are not on your hips. As far as padding goes, the stock padding is an insult. The D30 pads, both knee and hip, fit perfectly in all sizes (i have a 40 and i bought a much smaller size for my petite wife - pads fit the same in both). My wife hated them, too boxy. Also, the knee pads don't stay in place. It almost seems that the knee pad pockets need to be moved further to the outside of the leg. I'm not confident that the leg zippers will stay down in a crash. The waist snaps are a joke. I am 5'11" 240 lbs and my gut pops them right open most every time, again, suspenders are needed.
Anyway, i've got the pants but no cash to buy another pair so I'll use them for as long as i have to.
One plus, these pants zip perfectly into a rev'it tornado jacket.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Arai Signet-Q Helmet - Solid Colors The Signet-Q takes all the favorite features of the RX-Q and create a whole new series based on all the successes. On the outside, the Arai Signet-Q Helmet looks very similar to it's namesake, the RX-Q, but on the inside you can see and feel the difference. A longer shell shape on the Arai Signet-Q Helmet gives 5mm more space front to back allowing for a larger number of heads to fit comfortably. The shape of the Arai Signet-Q Helmet releases forehead pressures and eliminate hot spots for a more comfortable fit every time. This shape works best for riders with a long oval headshape. Additional Features of the Arai Signet-Q Helmet Both the top vent set and side exhaust cowls are direct carryovers from the RX-Q Brow vent ducting redirects to flow air across the temples DDL-4 exhaust vent to the 10mm wider eye port (5mm on each side) Long Oval Fit SAI MAX-Vision Brow Vent shield Clear Pin Lock Max-Vision Brow Vent pinlock lense included. Elongated shell adds 5mm from front to back Long-Oval shape helps prevent Hot-Spot Multi-Density Single piece EPS liner Removable, replaceable, washable interior Dry-Cool Surface material for rapid displacement of heat and moisture away from your head and into the ventilation airflow for added comfort while riding and a quick dry between rides 5mm peel-away temple pads adds another level of customization, giving the helmet interior a little extra width when needed Enhanced for customizable micro fitment interior without the need to purchase extra interior components New FCS (Facial Contour Support) cheek pad design Innovative and exclusive spring support adds just the right amount of pressure when needed while being worn Meets or exceeds Snell and D.O.T. standards

Nice Helmet. I'm coming off of a HJC that was way too big for me so that is what i'm comparing the noise level to. In comparison, this helmet is quiet. Almost too quiet with the visor down. I ride a 650 strom with a madstat bracket with a givi windscreen. I keep the windscreen straight up and down at the lowest height. I experience no whistling. The only way it does whistle is if I lean the windscreen back all the way and the air goes directly into the helmet. So if you ride a naked bike, yes, the helmet will whistle, crazy loud. But its not a problem for me at all. The venting is ok but when the visor is down it gets a little stuffy. But it is summer so maybe that's why. The pinlock causes a dual vision effect at night - it is boarder line dangerous because you can't see right. When riding in direct sun, the visor and pin lock concentrate the sun's rays and its really hard on your eyes, even with sun glasses. I am now looking to buy a dark smoke shield that i will not put a pinlock in to combat the sun. The stock shield will be used at night with the pinlock taken out. Lastly, the shield locking mechanism is weird. I've yet to figure it out after a couple months. I read the instructions but can't remember what they say. I shouldn't have to read instructions 5 times to understand how to close a shield and crack it. So lesson learned, don't force it open and closed, its only think plastic.
All that said it is very comfortable, looks good, nice vision field and I feel it is worth the price.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is the first mc jacket I have owned and I'm pleased with it. However, when i bought it i thought it had two seperate liners, one for thermal and one for waterproofing. Which is not the case. but honestly, it has not been an issue. It has served me well on cold mornings, hot afternoons and intermitten showers.
Yes, I recommend this product.
