They call this the Airglide jacket with good cause, this thing lets so much air through sometimes I forget it's on! It is built well and is very visable. (I ordered the Hi-Vis Yellow)
It fits me well, but I'm glad I ordered a large because it is a little tighter than other brands I have worn. If I had low sitting riding pants I would be concerned because the waist of the jacket is higher than others but it fits perfectly with the Airglide Pants. I wish they had made the pockets a little bigger and I don't like the way the cuffs work on the arms but that's all small stuff.
Also with the removable rain jacket (which can be worn separately) plus the additional removable thermal liner I think it's really a three season jacket, not only a summer one!
Yes, I recommend this product.

After owning these pants for a month they are my new daily commuter pants! The airflow is simply amazing and I will be purchasing the matching jacket as soon as I can!
They also come with a removable liner that double as a wearable pair of rain pants! I found that extra accessory a nice touch.
The only con would be the quality of the knee protection, but I was able to easily swap that out with a better set from my previous pants.
Also note that these things fit exactly like a pair of jeans! I wear a 34 waist x32 inseam and ordered the reg and they are snug over a pair of pants and also almost too long! They bag slightly when off the bike but fit perfectly while riding.
Thanks to revzilla for their amazing shipping! If they shipped any faster I'd have the product before I bought it!
Yes, I recommend this product.

Nolan N104 Outlaw Helmet Nolan N104 Helmets represent an evolutionary step for Nolan as they replace the much touted N103 Helmet. When compared the older N103, the Nolan N104 Helmet offers a helmet which is much lighter (7oz), features a lower profile through the use of multiple shell sizes, better aerodynamics, as well as a much larger viewport for increased visibility. The (patented) chin guard rotation movement with elliptical trajectory makes it possible to keep the total size of the helmet's front section to a minimum, when the chin guard is open. The sail effect is consequently highly reduced and riding comfort is still guaranteed, even when the chin guard is lifted. The new ultrawide eyeport is the largest of any Nolan helmet, both vertically and laterally for maximum field of view. The AIRBOOSTER ventilation system is equipped with an air intake in the chin bar, another intake in the brow and two rear extractors at the rear. The inner comfort lining includes removable cheekpads, inner liner, neckroll and chin curtain and is easily removable and washable as well as antifungal and antibacterial. New, redesigned comfort liner also accommodates eyeglasses much more easily than before. All Nolan N104 helmets are also N-COM B4 ready ( N-COM B4 is designed expressly for the N104 and is sold separately). Shell Features Injected polycarbonate GE Lexan shell 7oz lighter than the Nolan N103 Two Shell engineering allows Nolan N104 to offer sizes from 2XS to 3XL (2XS-LG and XL-3XL) Dimensionally correct sizing allows ample cubic volume in chin/nose area Faceshield Features Face shields are now sized to fit the two different shell sizes (2XS-LG and XL-3XL) Ultra wide eye port opening is the largest on any Nolan helmet for superior visibility Shield is changed by a simple push button mechanism Pinlock shield included with each helmet VPS (Vision Protection System) is new slider bar to lower, push button release for instant retraction VPS lens is scratch and fog resistant Chin Bar Features Centromatic chin guard opening mechanism requires dual action, simultaneous action to prevent accidental opening Dual action opening mechanism is positioned in the centre of the chin guard and allows for easy, one-handed opening Ventilation N104 has new AIRBOOSTER ventilation system, ensures optimal ventilation where is is most required Air intake in the chin guard draws air in and onto the inside of the faceshield 3 position top vent (closed, crown vent, crown/brow vent) 2 venturi exhaust ports at rear of helmet New plastic vent tube channels in EPS disperse cool air throughout the helmet interior Inner Liner Features removable cheek pads, inner liner, neck roll and wind protector The inner padding of the new N104 is easily removable and washable and antibacterial The shape of the inner comfort padding facilitates eyeglass wearing Reflective insert at the centre of the roll neck further improves the rider's visibility at night Neck roll can be removed easily, for more comfort in the warmer months Other Features N-Com Communication System compatible (sold separately) Features new Microlock2 quick-release retention system Microlock2 consists of a plastic ergonomic opening lever, and of a second aluminium toothed and holding lever Microlock2 minimizes the possibility of unintentional opening while still making it ergonomic and easy to use Meets or exceeds D.O.T. standards Note Outlaw versions of Nolan Helmets have a sleeker look with more subtle Nolan logos, but are identical to non-Outlaw helmets.

My build is a pain for motorcycle gear, tall but not too tall and thin but not too thin but that said the XL was the right choice for me in this brand of helmet breaking in after a few rides. Thanks to the site for the videos on sizing helmets!
At first the chin strap would rub on my jaw if I opened my mouth but that seemed to subside after a few rides too. The helmet opens beautifully and allows for one handed operation even with gloves on and the built in sun visor is an absolute lifesaver! The ability to drop and raise the sun shield while riding is a feature which is now a must have for me! All of the buttons, levers and clasps are very friendly and intuitive, even while riding and with gloves on.
The visor moves with a tactile "click" and the helmet is very well built. I don't have the comm system but I'm considering looking into one. The helmet is very comfortable on long rides (I have not taken it over 4-5 hours yet).
My only negative remarks would be that I feel even though it's an XL the helmet is a little on the bulky side and the airflow could be better. I'm not even into summer yet but I feel as though it's going to get a little hot in there. There are plenty of helmets worse though! I also think the aerodymaics could be improved but that may just be my motorcycle. The wind really seems to "take" this helmet when I turn to check my blind spots at speed.
In closing I would highly recommend this helmet. For the price, if you're looking for a mid to high level helmet under the $500 price point I think this would be it!
Yes, I recommend this product.
