It's now the beginning of November and I've been wearing these gloves for about a month now for my daily morning commute, here in the American Northwest. In the evenings, when the temperature is above 50F, I usually switch to a lighter leather glove for the short trip home. Over 60F and these gloves start getting a bit too warm for me. I've worn them on shorter rides with temps down around 37, but I suspect as the morning temperatures get down in the low 30's I will be wearing them with silk liners. I've not had a chance to try them in really wet conditions, but I'm sure I will, soon enough!
Overall fit seems a little large. Other reviews I've read seem across the board on sizing, so I wonder if there's a fair amount of variation. I first ordered the large, following the sizing guide, but then had to return them for a medium--and even then the fingers seem a tad long for my average-sized fingers. I would follow the sizing guide, and then order the next size down.
These gloves look absolutely badass, without the use of gaudy colors or excessive labels. And more importantly, they have great protection features. They are a bit stiff at first, and it's initially a bit difficult to work the controls. They are billed as "pre-curved", but I think they could've used a little more curve. I found that the gloves cinch up nicely in the wrist; the Velcro tab on the gauntlet is a little short, but still works for me. It's all going to depend on how thick your forearm is and the jacket you're trying to cinch it over!

Scorpion Hat Trick Jacket Three goals, three jackets. The Hat Trick has a nylon mesh outer layer with ballistic nylon elbow and shoulder panels, providing maximum airflow for hot-weather riding. Two removable liners do the rest One's an insulated Thermoliner to keep you warm when it's cool, and the other's a breathable waterproof liner that keeps you dry when it's wet. Simple and highly effective - a true four-season system. Features NightViz reflective panels front and back for visibility two inside and two outside pockets for all your cargo Cool, tattoo-inspired asymmetrical screened and embroidered graphics give a total custom look CE-approved SaS-Tec armor guards all critical shoulder and elbow impact areas

I have been wearing this jacket for about a week now, and I can offer just a few comments. This is a great-looking, well-made jacket, and a great bargain at the closeout price. Shipping was prompt, service was awesome. This was my second purchase from RevZilla.
Size: I am 5'7" with a 39-inch chest, broad shoulders, and a somewhat athletic cut. After first ordering a size L and finding it too large and about 3" too long in the sleeve, I ended up with a size S. (Dan in customer service was great in helping me select the right size). The fit across the chest and shoulders is a little snug, but in a good way as the armor sits where it should. The torso girth and length is perfect for me. The sleeves are still about 1/2" on the long side for me, but I think my arms are slightly shorter than the average hominid! Sitting in riding position on my cruiser, with the sleeves zippered down a bit over the wrist to keep them from riding up too high over my gloves, things are A-OK.
Style: the "phantom" makes for one bad-a** jacket. I can feel the masculinity fairly emanating from my being when I've got it on. Superior materials and stitching down to the liners, no gaudy logos, makes for classiness. The jacket is a much darker gray than what is shown in the photo--I suppose "charcoal" would be the term. I like the look, wife likes the look. I hope it doesn't fade too much. 'Nuff said.
Features: After making sure that the jacket would fit me with all the layers in place, I stripped out the two inner liners and am just wearing this as a summer jacket. It's still pretty warm up here in Southern Oregon, and with temperatures in the 80s and 90s, I find this (black, heat-absorbing) jacket plenty warm at anything less than 20mph. Over the past few days I've been working on my low-speed maneuvers in empty parking lots, and it's been downright hot with this jacket on. Some upper arm vents or other extra venting might have been really nice. But at about 25mph airflow through the mesh kicks in and it feels great. Can't comment yet on the cool or wet weather options. Maybe once we enter that season I can add to this review.

This is my first mid-range helmet after using cheap-o's for many years while living overseas. I wanted to invest in something that could be worn in a range of conditions, from summer heat in excess of 98 degrees, to winter temps around 35. I drive a cruiser with a pretty big windscreen, so I'm coming from a more laid-back riding perspective. I've also only worn this helmet for a couple days, but I'm good at updating reviews from time to time (and particularly if an initially-positive impression turns sour!).
I liked the feature set of the Nolan N43E Trilogy, as well as the modular N104. But the N43E won out for me due to the price point being about $100 lower, as well as the flexibility that the N43E seemed to offer. I mean, a modular either goes "face up" or "face down", and the technology definitely has a "coolness" factor, but this puppy can be worn as a 3/4, with the shield, or with goggles/glasses, and if you have been riding "open" it is easy enough to pop in the chin bar for a little more confidence as road conditions become more challenging. Currently it's pretty toasty wear I live, and I'm wearing it open-face with my shades slipped right in.
I found the sizing to be accurate. One thing I noticed (and like) is that when you remove the chin bar you get a slightly looser fit. Shaking the head from side to side does produce a bit of styrofoam squeak as the helmet shifts around the liner's suspension, but it does not seem excessive to me. I can't comment too much on wind noise and ventilation because, as I mentioned, I'm already behind a big windscreen. Perhaps one day I'll be able to try it without the benefit of the screen.
The look from front is a bit round, and this will be probably be accentuated the shorter you are. I guess Nolan caters to the more round-headed among us. Next season I'll get something a bit more street-stylish for the warmer months, but right now it's that year-round flexibility that matters most to me.
As others have said, the sun visor doesn't really go down far enough, particularly if you're sitting level on a cruiser. The solution is to adjust the tilt of the helmet forward a little. It does the job. I'd love to get a mirrored shield for it, but man! Have you seen those prices? Who would've thought that plastic could cost so much.
Overall, I'm pleased with my choice. Delivery was also prompt enough. I haven't interacted with the RevZilla folks personally at all, but they do some great reviews and the prices are certainly competitive.
Yes, I recommend this product.
