I've been riding with these gloves just about every day for the past couple of months. They've got a rock solid construction, and take you one step further in looking like the world's hugest badass, but the durability comes at the price. Even after breaking in and becoming more accustomed to my hands (and my hands becoming more accustomed to them), the seams on the fingers can be a nuisance.
The interior seams are genius from a protection standpoint--they're not going to come apart in a crash. On the other hand, on long rides they can begin to press into your fingertips and cut off circulation.
For $150, I had my hopes up for the perfect pair of gloves--the uncomfortable stitching let me down a little. Still love them and will continue to wear them for a long time to come. Maybe after a couple more months they'll get even comfier.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I've been wearing this boot for about two days now. It has been with me on the bike, as a part of my semi-formal work outfit (I'm an elementary school teacher), at a formal social gathering, and walking around town on the weekend.
I spent a long time waiting to find a boot that had some style and character as well as protection--and after about two years of wearing some cheap Harley boots I think I've finally found home with these. Not only is the styling top notch, they are tough, durable boots that are going to be able to protect me much better in a crash (really happy with the maleolus protection), handle the elements, and act as my day to day boot.
As far as sizing, I am generally a 10 1/2 US. I went with the size 43, which according to the size chart corresponds with 10 US. Right now the boots are comfortable as well as SNUG. They're fairly stiff, and a tight fit, but that's not necessarily a bad thing on a motorcycle boot, and I'm anticipating that they'll break in a bit as I continue to wear them.
Lastly something that isn't mentioned here on Revzilla is that they come with a little elastic sleeve with a leather panel that can be slipped over your left boot to prevent markings from your shifter. This was a pleasant surprise, however the only oversight with this seems to be that wearing the sleeve takes all of the grip away from your left foot when you set it down on the pavement.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I've been riding around the Seattle area in these. We're in that awkward period of time where it can't seem to decide if it's winter or spring or summer. Yesterday I went on an 80+ mile ride down south, about 50-something degrees with some light rain.
My hands stayed dry, but after a while the air flow can still make them a little chilly. Ultimately I never reached that point where my fingers were too cold to feel anything, but I still had to stop and warm them up every 45 miles or so. The great trade-off is that they also didn't get clammy or sweaty inside the liner--it's very breathable.
The gauntlets have a cool style, and I feel like I can comfortably operate all of the bike's controls in these gloves--not nimble enough to fasten my chin strap though.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This bag has quickly caused my saddlebags to fall out of use. It can be converted from an incredibly roomy tank bag to a compact backpack in under 10 seconds, is well built, and looks great. Great for when you don't want to have to leave things unattended on your bike when parked.
To my surprise, an iPhone touch screen can even be used THROUGH the map pocket's translucent screen. No longer have any need for a GPS or similar bar-mounted navigation device.
The extra straps, well organized interior, ability to expand, and attention to detail in the construction are just excellent cherries on top.
If you are trying to decide between the 12L bag and the 18L bag, you should go for the 18L. It is equal in size to the 12L but is able to expand a significant amount. This means that it remains as compact as the 12L when you need it to, but always gives you the option of having significantly more storage space.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I've been wearing these for three months now. They are appealing as far as how minimalistic they look despite the various protective features they pack in--the padded palm, the kevlar liner, the carbon fiber armor on the outside knuckle.
Airflow is great. So great that in mid 50's and low 60's riding my fingers can get pretty cold.
They do run very small. I'm wearing an XL, have skinny hands but longer fingers, and still they feel very snug, especially at the fingertips.
The only thing that has really concerned me about these is that the fabric around the carbon fiber armor is looking a little stressed, as though the armor might push through eventually.
Overall stylish, well-constructed gloves.
