As a daily commuter, I made it a point to not buy regular pants anymore. I looked around for black pants with abrasion resistance, knee armor, and cargo pockets, and it had to look more or less like a regular pant.
The only thing missing in these is the knee armor, but the pants are so nice that I don't mind. I am 6'2" 200lbs and ordered a 34, which is what I normally wear. I prefer about a 36" inseam. These fit extremely well, do not require a belt but are not too tight (they loosen slightly after a few days), do not show my ankles when riding (or ever), and are very comfortable - lightly padded, even. The hand pockets are wide and loose so it isn't a pain to stick your glove in there, and I have no complaints about the rest of the pockets either.
Last, my girlfriend says they are slimming and look sleek and modern. Much better than the cargo sweatpants I wore on our first date.

I have had two pairs of these. My first pair was a few months old when ONE glove got stolen, so I bought another pair. The glove that was not stolen was in alright condition.
When I bought the second pair (at a dealership), the first thing that seemed strange is the left cuff was much tighter than the right. I exchanged it before I left the dealership and didn't seem to have a problem. They are nice at first, but don't expect them to last forever:
I ride every day. In a week I had torn the velcro cuff closure of the right side at the stitching, so it was hanging by half the threads. This happened because I was pulling on the velcro to pull the gloves on. After about 2 months, all the little rubber pad things on the fingers were long gone - those never last. After about 6 months the suede had become all frayed looking; the fabric bunches up and hangs off in little balls and generally looks bad. Stitching around the fingers had started to come loose. After one year, there were several small holes in the palms just from wear and tear.
After I highsided my WR250X and came down right on my palms, the gloves were destroyed. The palm fabric tore free, although it did protect my hands that one last time.
They're alright gloves, but I wouldn't buy suede again.

Icon Brawnson Textile Overpants Understated style that goes over-the-top is the best way to describe the Brawnson Textile Overpants. Icon's relaxed fit and ultra-tough 900 denier chassis is a no B.S. combination. What else would you expect from a pant called Brawnson Remember the Brawnsons are an 'overpant' which means they are already sized up on size. Therefore buy a size 34 to wear over your size 34 jeans. If your plan on running your Brawnson's commando then buy one size smaller than your normal waist size. Icon loose overpant fit pattern Durable nylon chassis Removable/adjustable ce knee impact protectors Large thigh pockets with zipper closures

I needed a pair of casual riding pants with the following features:
-Knee armor
-Cargo pockets
-Black (not leather)
-Cool and comfy
These pants fulfill 1, 2 and 3, but they are rather hot and stuffy. To be fair, I ride in 80+ weather year round. My only other minor complaint is that they make a lot of noise, but that is to be expected. Overall I feel safe, the knee armor fits me well, and the cargo pockets are ENORMOUS.
I am 6'2 / 200 and ordered a 32. The waist fits snug - I think I could have gone with a 34, but the 32 does fit and is not uncomfortable. Good pair of pants!

I bought this because the chin vent looks cooler than the AFX helmets (and all the clones). The forehead vents are also quite large and flow well. With the bill in the highest position you can both duck all the way down at freeway speed without it blocking your vision, or you can put your goggles up there which is way more convenient and cooler looking than putting them on your chin.
Paired with Dragon NFX goggles; fit is good but I had to take off the goggle's nose protector for easy transitioning. Compared to the Fly Trekker dual sport helmet, the goggles sit closer to my face on the Dash. This way the goggles do not block as much vision and are more comfortable.

They look and feel good on bare skin or pants. They stay in place. They seem like they will absorb a first impact just fine. What else could you want from $15 kneepads?

This is a comfortable and effective set of goggles. The field of view is slightly larger than most, thanks both to the frameless lens and to the overall frame being on the large side. The frame is very flexible, as is the lens, which is easy to swap out. I have yet to go on a long, dirty ride so I do not yet know if the seal between the lens and frame is adequate or if the very soft foam breathes enough.
But let's be honest, you want to buy these because they look so cool. Everyone who sees them comments on how futuristic and sick they look.
The only complaints I have are 1) these did not fit an XL Fly Trekker. The opening is not big enough for the beak and even with the beak removed it does not sit very well. Issue 2 is that the beak is not removable right out of the box. The retaining tabs are sufficient to hold it in place, but the tabs also have a rubber dowel locking them to the frame. I had to cut the dowels and now it can be removed. Too bad it still didn't fit the Fly too well...
All in all, they look cool and work well enough that I very much recommend these.

Perforations between fingers and at other various sweaty points flow air pretty well. Cuff is wide; fairly easy to put on. Fingertips are even less compatible with touchscreens than other gloves. Palm and outer-pinky protection is minimal.
I have a 9" hand and I ordered one size larger (XL) per reviews here. I am not sure I should have done that. It is comfortable and non-constrictive, but the fingertips are a bit loose and the inner fingers bunch a little bit when wrapped around the grips. On the other hand, the L might have been too tight. Depending on how long they last I might buy these again in an L sometime down the road.

Superb fit and finish, as expected of Shoei. The vents work really well. This is the first helmet I've owned in which the airflow above my forehead is distinctly present, and the chin vent works so well that it sometimes dries my contacts out. The upper vents whistle slightly when at certain angles, particularly on my Fireblade but NOT on my R6. Quieter than a Scorpion Exo-400, a bit louder than an Arai Profile. The minimal features over the RF-1100 probably do not justify the significantly higher price point.
