I originally purchased this helmet because it was carbon fiber and sub $400 and the graphics look amazing. Unfortunately that is all this helmet has going for it. I received this helmet on 10/18/13 and had to send it back on 10/22/13. When I first pulled it out of the box I was blown away at how light the helmet was and the graphics look amazing. I tried it on and even though I am a large in most helmets and according to the size chart on revzilla and on Kali's website it fit a bit loose at the top of the head and the cheek pads were so tight on my face it was almost uncomfortable but that is something that will break in. I usually wear a thin headwrap too keep the sweat from getting to my helmet so the looseness was not felt with the head wrap on. I rode with the helmet for a couple of days and after careful inspection I noticed that the inside of the chin bar would move around while I was riding. So much so that when I was riding with the visor up it actually blew the breath deflector clean off the helmet. I took it home and really started looking at the build quality and was shocked at how shotty this helmet is put together. The strap is rough and hard to cinch down and take off. The visor is one of the most difficult to change I have ever seen. The snaps on the liner are cheaper than stuff I've seen at a dollar store. The chin vent is on par with everything else. CHEAP! For close to $400 I would go with anything else. I don't feel comfortable even riding in this helmet because of the subpar build quality. I have an HJC CL-16, which was about $120, and this helmet is so much better than the KALI. Fortunately revzilla is helping me rectify this situation. Unfortunately because I have already used the helmet I will probably be stuck with the helmet. I hope this review will guide people away from this helmet and save them the grief I am having to go through. I will post an update once I get this problem resolved. Ride safe!

I bought this jacket because it was on sale and couldn't pass up the deal. The quality of the jacket is great. It has tons of reflectivity for night driving and decent protection. I had to buy a 44 because that was the smallest size left but, I should have bought a 42 or maybe even a 40. I would say its a spring or early fall jacket. I used it during August and while it does have vents the lining inside makes you sweat too much. But when it is cooler it does a terrific job. I would definitely recommend this jacket. Too bad the company went out of business because I would buy more from them.
Yes, I recommend this product.
