The glove liners are good. thin, slick surface (means the gloves go over them easier) and the heating elements are in good locations. some people complain about the one on the back being hot but I only find that when I am using gloves that are tight with the liners on them. If you have a medium/light weight winter glove with some level of insulation in it (and hopefully just enough extra room for the liners, it doesn't take much) then the liners make it feel more warm than a thick puffy glove while still having an ability to feel. This would probably not make a pair of summer gloves perform all that well.
So very good marks for the liners. the controller though has a couple of issues that are major issues for me at least.
for one the buttons are hard to push and give no real tactical feedback this all get's worse when you are wearing thick gloves. which of course you are because it is cold, that is why you would be using the liners.
Most critically the controller does not come on when plugged in to the power from the bike. If it remembered it's last state then this issue would be fixed, but it don't. you have to push a button, it is not like a mechanical switch and since the controller is and or will be inside your jacket (most likely) and you will have gloves on etc. it is just a pain to get to the controller and turn it on then get all zipped up and get gloves on etc. Too much thinking ahead of time.
I would suggest that you buy the liners by them selves, then get the single remote wireless controller thing. this will come on when plugged in and the easy to use knob on the controller could be changed while riding. there is a big difference between 70mph in 30f and waiting at a light at 30f.

Ok, This I think is a very well made pair of gloves.
I have rated the "Airflow" above as excellent in that there is none. This is not a vented glove but used for colder weather. That being said it is either not insulated or only thinly insulated. it does a good job of keeping your hands warm but it ain't no seal fur mittens, but it is not meant to be. the real good side for me on the insulation is that it is either not there or very thin so you don't get the feeling of big puffy hands that I don't like while trying to operate controls and what not.
I have rated the sizing slightly small but I have big hands so take that as you will. I have a 8 and 7/8 hand circumference measurement which should put me in the medium range I got a large as I was intending to also put heated glove liners (power let) under them, I can barley do so. Even without the liners the large is a bit tight to get my hands into. largely around my thumb, or rather the first bone of my thumb (the one that connects to the hand) and to some degree the length of the hand from the fingers to the heal is a bit longer than they had designed the glove fore. (this can also misplace the protection elements) I can use them with the liners but I am hoping that the leather relaxes a bit (not sure if it will given it's treatments) I should point out that these two sizing issues getting my large thumb bone into the glove (past the wrist section) and the length of my hand are common for me and rarely do I find one that fit's me quite right. This is good for you if you normally do fit most gloves right. I imagine that there are common assumptions about the dimensions of the hand based on the circumference measurement. I am just weird. None the less all of this weird sizing issues aside I would have to have the Large on circumference issues alone so I would say they are if not a full size small then close to it. If you are any ware near the top end of the range then go up a size
Why not send them back for resizing and get one size larger? That is a good question Revzilla has excellent policies on resizing. Well they can only go so far to protect me from my self. I received the gloves before the liners and decided to keep them and took off all of the packaging bits then rode with them. some time after that I figured that they where a bit small and the next week when I got my liners I decided I should have sent them back but I had already rode in them. One of these days I will learn to be thoughtful about my new toys, no, actually that isn't likely to happen. Every motorcycle rider has a kid inside that just want's to go out to play.
The style is good for me (a very subjective issue not well suited to five distinct categories) in that it is some what subdued. Wile form follows function being the rule.
One thing I don't like are tight gauntlets as I like them to easily go over the sleeves of the thickest jackets. well these are limited in that regard of course that can pretty clearly be seen in the pictures. I Still chose them due to the other positives. and for winter or even cold weather riding most gloves have nothing for protection.
Waterproofing by Gore-Tex you pay so they will replace them forever. need I say more.
Protection covers the basics that I like in a glove. the materials are top notch. As for the application of them well I will put it into categories.
Back of Hand and knuckles: good over the knuckles like how they applied it but no hard armor extending very far over the back of hand, but this is still very good as I think there is some Poron XRD under there.
Heal of the hand this has a padded panel with some abrasion resistant textile here but I like something slick here like a slider. this will kick the hand out in a fall and save your scaffold (I am sure I spelled that wrong) this works but just doesn't have that slick nature to it.
Pinky reinforcement: I like to see a lot of protection and layers warped around the bottom of the hand and way up on the pinky as it is so likely to get ripped back in a fall with any momentum in it. and on a pinky you can afford to have a bit of loss of dexterity.
Wrist protection. it is nice to see something well positioned to catch the impact of the protruding wrist bones, this is of course a little difficult to accomplish without hampering movement particularly with a tight fitting gauntlet. This is done OK with some more padded and abrasion resistant pannles but not what I would call perfect.
Drag and Catch: I am always considering all of the things that will get caught or be sensitive to drag on any garment. This is not the only reason I don't where jackets with fringe on them but you can count it as one. These are pretty good, better than most. the only part I could come up with is the knuckle protection section that floats in the rear across the back of the hand. though I don't think that this is a major or even significant concern and in particular as compared to the gloves competitors.
in short if you want a glove that is a cool if not colder weather glove there are not a lot that offer much protection of any kind this has a fairly good protective design with top notch materials, the styling pleases me and they have light colored palms to boot (I always prefer the lighter colored palms, it's just a thing with me) These should seriously be considered.
As for price well. I want everything to be cheaper. but I don't feel ripped off compared to the competition however it is very close to if not just beyond the amount I am willing to pay for gloves that are anything other than absolutely perfect.

I haven't had a lot of riding time with it but so far it is very good. it seems to compare very well to the Interphone F5 (the only other higher end unit I have used). I got this one for specifically one reason that I don't believe that others can do. once you have connected say your iPhone you can then connect your GPS. the difference is that most systems can only connect one or there other. they get them both connected by connecting the phone to the gps and the gps to the headset etc.. at any rate this allows me full access to the more sufisticated functions on my smart phone and still get to here the annoying voice of the gps. the intercom as one would expect is great. it fits on my arai Profile helmet with the adhesive clamp very well.

Styling and fit are variables of importance here. Remember that this is cut loose like dirt bike pants. if you are wanting European cut road pants then this is not for you.
That being said I am really impressed with them. The styling and fit is appropriate for the market they are targeting, not quite my flavor as it is just a little more dirt-bikey than I would like. That being said they are extremely understated for something in this category, at least the black ones are. They are understated enough that I where them all the time which includes commuting, traveling, and trail riding. I work in a normal office building and they don't offend the senses when I come in. most people don't notice. Some may say there are not many features on them but keep in mind the materials and processes are also a feature. What they have done they have done with an eye toward durability and repeatable use.
They seem to be very durable and not just a small Armacore patch on the knee for example, a large area covering the knee and outside of the lower leg and wrapping around the bottom et cettera, even running up the inside for several inches. So a slight peppering of overkill, this is always good. They are also as a result a bit more crinkly feeling than some (this is likely the Gortex treatment) but once they are on you will not notice this so pay it no mind. One think you will notice is that they are fairly heavy, they don't feel like they are so heavy they are trying to fall off when you stand up but I would guess that they are twice the weight of RevIt Defender GTX pants. That comes with durable repeatable protection, I have no doubt that they are far more than twice as durable particularly in where areas.
Want feature? how about reasonable sized pockets on both sides! higher end pants generally have a missing pocket syndrome, some have none at all and some just one little impractical pocket to remind you what you are missing. While these pants don't qualify as cargo pants they do have two practically useful pockets. be careful what you put in them as you may then fall on it.
Being fully waterproof without a liner you might think that they would be to hot but so far they breath like you would expect from Gortex. You can open the vents as far or little as much as you like and once you do the venting is wonderful. I have not ridden in monsoons but moderately heavy rains and the resulting sweltering high humidity that comes after these rains. They where perfectly dry in the rain and reasonably cool in the steamy heat.
The way they do the armor takes a little getting used to, to get it in position and have it stay. The armor is in a pocket in the permanent mesh liner which floats inside the shell which can twist a little the first time you put it on and you can end up with the armor on the side of your knee. it is fairly easy to reposition and will stay there after that once you get everything sorted out, at least until the first hit that is. When you get a little more used to this it is quick and easy to get the pants on and end up with the armor in an acceptable position. The armor pockets in the knees are adjustable up and down and left and right by the typical extra Velcro patches in the pocket. Remember that is in the floating mesh liner under the shell. Thigh armor pockets are simple drop in's and are not position adjustable.
I am not a great fan of d3o but it works and when you are getting brave with your motorcycling antics you can comfortably fit your knee/shin pads (mine are Icon Field something or other.) on under the existing armor without removing it. Sas-tech knee and hip armor can fit in the pockets but with the Sas-tech it is a more formed piece and now the positioning is more important, though I think it is better armor than the d3o stuff. I don't' think the armor (the d3o stuff) moving around a little bit will be a great big deal as the d3o stuff is essentially a flat piece with pleats in it to allow it to flex around a knee when bent. it is for the most part consistently thick (or thin as you view the world) so if it moves around an inch or two it probably makes little difference. Where as Sas-tech or BMW NP armor has formed cups to fit the joint in a specific place. You wouldn't want that to be an inch left or right at the time of impact.
So to sum up the armor section I don't particularly like the 3do armor, but as they are using 3do I don't think the armor shifting around a bit is particularly detrimental. You can easily fit body fitting armor underneath the stuff without removing the 3do. Maybe this is the area where Klim didn't build in overkill, but if you look at it like a product from an off road riding company (which it is) where they expect you to have armor on underneath the pants (most of there others) then the addition of another layer of floppy orange foam to 'protect the armor protecting the knee' maybe is a kind of overkill.
This does make them work quite well as over pants. I don't know that they would work as over pants for denim jeans or the like but they work well for BDU's and North Face Paramount M pants that I get away with wearing at the office.
So for some bad, there always is some. but these fall into more of personal nit-picking and it is hard if not impossible for any company to account for everyone's tastes as they are so different from person to person.
I for one like to have the leg cuff zippers be about seven hundred feet long. as long as they can get them before running into the back of the knee. Some people like them shorter. Klim has made these moderate I would say. Again for my personal preference a moderate length is a missed opportunity make it properly (properly being my way of course.) The stretch panel on the back could be bigger, thus allowing for more stretching to get over my lazy but. The side synches could be longer to more firmly keep my growing belle above the waist line. While you are at it some simple padding across the seat would not go amiss either. You can ear opposing preferences whispering in the back ground though, some don't like too much materiel on synching up stuff, it flops around and annoys them. Hint Klim make it from nylon webbing with a loose end, that way the skinny healthy people who don't like floppy ends can just cut it off. So opinions are like er,.. well motorcycle pants, if you don't have any you will be getting some shortly.

So far I like the f5. it is well built and fairly simple to use. my bike is extremely loud and I can hear fine and clear. what's more on a phone call people can't tell I'm on the bike (which is both good and bad) it is excellent noise filtering.

I use these as overpants and they work very well for that. some quick notes I like are. they added a hook as well as a snap on the fly. they modified the starting point of the connection zipper so it is much easier to access than other pants (and first run versions of these pants, at least according to reviews I have read on the web) thy are well stitched and the materiel seems to be very durable though I haven't been down in them to test that yet. at the same time they are not overly stiff. very flexible and consequently very comfortable. then vents work great! and the second day I wore them I was in the rain and the vents closed up tight with no leaking of rain. then I pulled over and put the liners in and perfectly dry and not muggy feeling. Gortex is good. very satisfied. the only bad part is now I am compelled to buy the matching jacket.

these bags are good, slightly lighter weight material than I expected but that doesn't have to a bad thing. time will tell how they hold up. the finishing of the seams, trimming of the excess material where surprisingly poor. this is not high quality attention to detail here. but then again they are a fair bit cheaper than other similar bags. nothing special about the design most bags are similar, or these are similar to most bags however you like.
if you are looking for a cheaper but functional option this is it. if you are looking for high quality detail, perhaps not.

one of the only completely blacked out jackets you can get and that is a plus sometimes. The fit for me was beyond excellent. it may partly be coincidence but I have taylor fitted suit jackets that don't fit me this well. that means wherein it and moving about in it is as if you are not wherein it. If I stop riding some day I will take the armor out and continue to where it as a typical leather jacket. it is a very nice fit with trim european cut. I did have to go three sizes larger than I normally go to get the room across the chest but once I did it was great.
it flows a lot more air than I expected, it is not as much as a mesh jacket but lots of perf and the stretch inserts in the inside of the sleeves and it is right nice cool.
I like subdued colors not it doesn't have to be all black but I don't prefer bright blues reds and whites etc.. there are just not that many jackets that have a toned down color scheme on them. I got the blacked out (murder black) one as a compromise and I love it.
it has a fair list of technical features about it and it is one of the jackets with longer list that doesn't also have a race hump. I like the upper end features and protection but not a race hump or bright loud color scheme. if that is you I think you will be happy with this jacket.
