These gloves are amazing! Palm slider.. Distortion control system, carbon fiber knuckle and several carbon and plastic mid digital sliders. The features are definitely above average, especially for this price. Glove fits well, only takes a few hundred miles to break in well and become very very comfortable. The only complaint is the lack of thumb protection. It would be nice to have at least a plastic slider mid digitally.
Would definitely recommend these gloves to any rider.
Yes, I recommend this product.

While I have only used the Scotpion Monroe pants with the inner liner removed, I believe they're perfect as Overpants. The stretch panels in the knees help give you extra room sitting on the bike, especially when you have a pair of blue jeans underneath. The adjustable waistband helps for a snug fit every time. Wish there was more than just the one jacket-attachment loop but can't complain.
Ventilation is decent enough riding at speed, and the reflectove panels at the bottom do a good job as well.
Very solid pants for your buck. Only complaint is the weak foam hip inserts.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Adjustable snaps at the elbow and velcro on the cuffs and waist sections help for a snug fit. Reflective safety vest stores easy and works well in both nighttime and low light.
Ventilation provides some decent airflow, can't complain.

Very wide field of vision, the ventilation works excellently. Fits a little tightly to start, namely in the cheek pads but they wear in rather quickly. I wish that it cost a little less but with the DOT and Snell certifications, ventilation, and quick release visor you get a lot for your money.
Yes, I recommend this product.
