Icon Patrol Waterproof Gloves Eighty percent of the controls on a motorcycle are operated with your hands. The Patrol waterproof gloves were designed to keep you in control when the weather turns foul. The fully insulated and waterproof design provides maximum comfort and protection. The chassis is not only waterproof but features a mild precurve design to reduce hand fatigue. The palm is constructed of Battlehide goatskin for optimum feedback yet maintaining durability. Reinforced rubber knuckle armor covers the backhand along with a reflective graphics package. Finally, an integrated goggle wipe built into the thumb helps keep your shield clear. Waterproof textile chassis Abrasion resistant premium grade Battlehide goatskin palm Reinforced rubber knuckle armor Reflective graphics Goggle wipe on thumb Precurved palm and finger design

I ride year round in NC if the weather is above freezing, and these gloves do a good job keeping my hands comfortable. I didn't say warm, as you would need heated gloves or grips to get warm hands in 35-40 degree weather. That said, I can easily tolerate my 40 minute ride to work when the weather is 35-40. Ventilation is none with these non-Gortex gloves, so when the weather is approaching 60, my hands get a little sweaty. Of course, when the weather gets to 60, I don't want to wear gauntlets anyways. They fit well and true to size. The inner liner stays in place when you take your moist hands out of the glove. I have worn them a few times in rain with no leaks noted. I think they look great. I would buy these again.

Now that I have worn this jacket several times in 35-40 degree weather during my 45 minute commute to work, I feel qualified to review it. With the liner removed, it is very good when the temperature is under 80 degrees. Liner is nice when the weather drops below 65. Wore it in heavy rain twice and was completely dry. Venting adjustments are a bit cumbersome, but the chest, arm and back vents allow for some serious airflow. Overall, the jacket is stiff, but it seems to be slowing breaking in. My two complaints would be the neck and wrist closures could be a bit more substantial. My wife does complain a little about following behind me when I where the HiViz - says it is very bright ... isn't that the idea? Overall great riding jacket.

I like the style - bought the black/yellow and I like the hi viz look. Only complaint is they seem marginally protective in the thumb and palm areas.

The wife and I had purchased the regular units for our full helmets and loved them, so we bought the half helmet units as well. We both listen to Bluetooth music while wearing ear plugs - just cinch down the helmet strap to get the ear speaker pads tight. Sound quality is surprisingly good with the only issues when speeds get up to 50+. At 50+, you can still hear, but conversations are not practical. My biggest gripe with all of Sena units is the slow recharge times - 4-8 hours. Overall, very happy with the purchase.

Purchased the 2 pack and had both units installed within an hour. The helmets used were a Shoei RF-1100 and a Neotech. I had to install the unit on the Neotech a little further back due to the internal visor lever. Sync with iPhone 4S was a breeze. Bluetooth audio (iTunes) sounds great and volume is OK. Telephone operation is a bit harder - tough to remember the combination of button pushes required to perform functions. The main reason we made the purchase is to communicate between our bikes. Clarity is generally good. On occasions, it takes a 5-10 seconds to connect. Typical connection times is 2-3 seconds.. We have talked 1/4 to 1/3 mile apart without issues. Battery life is good. I recharge proactively every 5-6 hours of operation (Bluetooth audio on all of the time and direct communication 2-3 times an hour). Only gripe is that it takes 4-6 hours to completely recharge. So if you have two units, bring two chargers if you are on the road. We were pleased enough to buy the half helmet units. I will review those units after a little more time using them.

The bag is great - meets all of my needs - except...I wish the side pockets were a little roomier. I would like the ability to put my gloves or larger sunglass in them, but cannot easily do that. The finish seems great and the size is perfect for my V-Rod. I like the ability to just grab the bag off the bike and go. no fussing with straps or snaps The magnetic flaps seem to fasten themselves back onto the bag without flopping off as oppose to my wife's tank bag which requires a little work with the velcro keepers that do not seem to hold as secure. Great bag overall.

Shoei Neotec Modular Helmet Evolving on previous designs, Shoei has revamped its modular helmet style with a streamlined and attractively sculpted shape that conveys the feel of freely moving through the outdoors in the Neotec Modular Helmet. Overall shell size is kept compact by incorporating the internal sun visors open/close mechanism inside all ventilation mechanisms are shaped and positioned in such a way as to reduce any possible drag. A redesigned aerodynamic spoiler also helps to cut lift, reducing neck strain on long, cross country rides. In the Shoei Neotec all these features combine to create a premium helmet that excels in appearance, protection, comfort and performance. The Shoei Neotec Helmet's chin bar is connected to the same axis point and mechanism as its shield, minimizing extra parts. This also enables simultaneous closing of the shield with the chin bar, which is then held in place with an easy-open lock release button. The shield lock system offers secure closure or the ability to keep the shield slightly open to allow for increased airflow. With the Shoei Neotec Helmet, Shoei now includes a built-in sun shield, the QSV-1. The visor tucks neatly away beneath a non-intrusive shell built into the helmets liner, and can be lowered with the easy control of a sliding button. Shoei Neotec Helmet Features Face Shield Features Easily operable lever mechanism Anti-fog, anti-scratch, 99 UV blocking New Pinlock-ready CNS-1 faceshield Wider and taller than the CX-1V that it replaces Includes Pinlock insert 3D injection molding process ensures a distortion-free view Improved Ventilation and Aerodynamics Newly designed vortex generators pull air through helmet 276 more airflow than Multitec Added inlets and outlets Vents are flush against helmet to maintain aerodynamics 5-Ply Shock-Absorbing Fiber Shell 3 shell sizes AIM Multi-Composite construction Lightweight yet strong Shell-integrated spoiler reduces lift and drag during high-speed riding Dual EPS Liner Multi-density EPS for optimal protection Two vents funnel fresh air through the EPS liner Dual liner channels route and disperse air evenly throughout the helmet EPS liner in chin bar All new interior Fully removable 3D interior liner Top center pad is removable and washable Improved cheekpad design allows better fit with eyeglasses Included chin curtain can be inserted into the chin bar to reduce turbulence and noise All Neotec Helmets sold in the US have a double D-ring closure Note Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States

I spent a lot of time researching my first premium helmet and I am glad I did. After speaking to several people including the experts at Revzilla, I decided to pull the trigger. I have had the helmet for 3 weeks and find it lives up to the claims. The fit is a bit tight on my cheeks, but the pads are slowly conforming to my face. My only grip is that Shoei does not have a tinted shield. Shoei - PLEASE RELEASE A TINTED SHIELD! Overall, I am very pleased with this helmet.
