Givi Monokey Trekker Case Set 46 litre or 33 litre top-case black with aluminium finish with top opening. Available in two versions, with a capacities of 46 LT ( TRK46N) and 33 LT (TRK33N), the new TREKKER bags are the best solution for the bikes equipped with exhaust pipes only on one side. Buy affixing the smaller bag to the side with the exhaust pipe , and the larger on the other, in many cases you can solve the issue of asymmetry (a problem that you might find using traditional side bags). Thanks to special selectors placed inside the bags, you can convert each version to either to fully open the entire lid or only the uppermost smaller opening (very practical for quickly accessing items from the bag, avoiding any ill timed spilling the whole contents). Elaborately trimmed in steel foil, these bags are not necessarily specific to just enduro bikes, they can also be a luxurious accessory on the elegant ones. This peculiar diversity sold in a single unique package, combined with its ability to be used as a top case on the Monokey plates, gives to the customer the opportunity to choose the best combination to mount to the bike in order to suit his/her space needs. Sold in pairs. 33 Liters 16.2 x 20.7 x 9.5 46 Liters 16.2 x 20.7 x 12.2

The cases are amazing. I chose the 33 liter cases for the sides. I've already been on a few trips, fits everything I need, I do pack only the necessary, but took all of my stuff plus my gf's stuff on both of these.
Have been on heavy rain for more than an hour, happy to say the inside absolutely dry, not even a hint of moisture.
The cases mount very easily on the tubular accesories (must buy bike specific).
Only thing I don't like is that you must have the key inserted to close the case (you open with the key, but you can't remove it until you close it again) It's not a big of a deal, but that's the only con so far.
Def. recommend.

Helmet is great. Easy to operate and lift it up with one hand. It does tend to fog up when you are still, but I guess they figured you would just open it up when necessary. Air flow is good, cheek pads seem a little tight, but they will adjust to your shape with time. Noise is good for a modular helmet, can't fight the noise much on these types of helmets, but it is not bad at all.
Weight seems to be ok, have had no problems with it.

I bought this jacket recently and I am very pleased with it. I use it in Ecuador, were I live, and the temperatures here go from 5 C to 24 C, so for this kind of weather the jacket is perfect. Perhaps for hotter weather, it might get a little hot since it doesn't vent directly to the body but to the floating liner. Perfect fit, nice style, upgraded the back armor.
For this price can't find anything like it, great bang for the buck. Materials are sturdy and it seems like a great construction, seems durable. Has a big back pouch were you could store the thermal liner if you get hot. Also has to waterproof front pockets that seem handy.

Have this gloves a couple of weeks now. The fit is correctly described in the product video. Haven´t tested waterproof capabilities yet. Glove is comfortable, not too stiff so you still get a pretty good feel on the bike levers. It has a slight curvature that helps your hands. Inside the hands feel warm, maybe too warm for the summer days. I ride in Ecuador, pretty much in the andes range so temps here go from 6 C to 25 C and for this range it is perfect. Finish and style are great.
