Got these boots because I wanted something that was more protective then my current riding shoes(half-cabs). I wear a size 9 in Vans and got a 42(8.5) in these shoes and they fit perfect. Glad I read all the reviews saying it was about a half-size big.
Pretty much everything that I looked for in a commuter boot: good airflow, increased protection over regular shoes, and muted styling. I got these instead of the new x-sport because I don't like the carbon fiber on the new ones. Also saved $30 because these were on closeout! Btw these are also CE certified like the new boots. Description doesn't point that out.
Only cons on the shoe is the insole is flat so I removed the originals and put a new pair in. Also the sole is a little bit slippery out of the box so take it easy the first couple rides.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Got this helmet as a spare. Flows air really good, I can actually feel the air going through the vents unlike my Scorpion r410. Helmet is nice too bad the gmax is clear coated and not a sticker so I can rip it off. Gave a 3 for durability because I received one and it was broken during shipping. The back vents were broken and feel fragile. But customer service got me a new one so its all G.
The helmet does come with a free dark smoke shield so unless you want a spare, no need to buy an extra like I did. Shield changing system is pretty junk too.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Got this jacket because my Icon Overlord was too hot for summer and felt like I was overheating while riding. This jacket has a relaxed fit and feels loose but has adjustment straps that help get the fit correct.
The mesh on the jacket flows air great but the textile is so much more flimsy in comparison to the one used on my Overlord jacket. Cant comment on the vest liner that comes with it because i never rode with it in. The price on this is great though and I use it much more than my Icon. I got the white color to keep me cooler and its seems to not get as dirty as fast as I thought it would.
Only thing that looks weird on the jacket is the Speed and Strength logo on the front. Would much rather prefer the "S&S" branding like on their other jackets.
Yes, I recommend this product.

A comfortable glove for hot weather. Good value glove but I wish they would have just made the velcro micro velcro and the strap a bit thicker so its more sturdy. The velcro on mines is starting to "chew up" the stretch material near the wrist.

Got this back protector as an upgrade to the stock foam in my icon jacket. Chose this over the Icon d3o because I heard this one is thicker and also comes with a ce2 rating. Not sure what that means but it feels very heavy duty. Only complaint was that the air vents were mostly closed. Tried to cut them open and didn't work much so I just drilled the vent holes with a drill bit. Since the material is soft it is easy to make it more breathable if you want even more airflow.

Icon Overlord Textile Jacket With all the pattern engineering of the Overlord leather, but executed in a nylon chassis, the Overlord textile represents possibly the best value in textile motorcycle jackets. The durable nylon chassis, combined with large panels of breathable Fighter mesh, provides valuable protection while maintaining comfort. A full complement of internal CE impact protectors confirm the jackets legitamacy. Finally, the Overlord's precurved arms and strategic flex zones position the rider in an sportbike oriented attack posture. The Overlord textile - ready for whatever the streets may hold. Icon attack fit Durable nylon textile chassis Removable Icon CE field armor impact protector elbow and shoulder Removable Icon dual-density foam back pad Gathered elastic flex panels on elbows and shoulders Strategically placed fighter mesh panels for ventilation Removable insulated wind resistant vest Upgradable to stryker CE back protector

This is my first jacket and got it as a present. Had it for a month now and 500 miles. I'm 5'7" 155 with a 38 chest and 34 sleeve length. Got a small and fits perfect. Sleeves length is to my wrist, some space in the chest, and right above my belt line. I ride in 70-80+ degree weather and this jacket gets hot when at a stop light or traffic even with the zipper half down and zipper sleeves open. Took out the liner cuz its uncomfortable and sticks to your body sweat. Breathes well when going over 20. Upgraded the backpad to the klim d3o so maybe that has something to do with it getting hot but the stock was so flimsy and had no perforations. Next jacket I get is going to be mesh for more comfort.
Durability wise I think the first thing to break are going to be the wrist snaps. They feel like they can break every time I take off the jacket. One thing I do enjoy is the Saint Christopher in the chest pocket. Some extra protection during my ride.
