Construction is durable. The vest is highly visible in the day, very reflective at night. The pouch (with the US flag) has come in handy for storing things like State Park Pass, Passport, small amounts of cash, for making park access and border crossings easier. Easier than digging out a wallet anyway :)
I did only give it 4 of 5 for breathability. While a breathable mesh type fabric, it is a closed knit mesh and doesn't breath as well as a more open knit mesh would. Granted a more open mesh may not be as durable. There is always a trade off.

This is a well made vest, constructed from durable materials. It should last many years. Airflow is excellent and allows the vest and your jacket beneath, to breath on hot days.

These tires came stock on my Tiger Explorer 1200. They were already showing signs of squaring off in the rear and some odd/lumpy wear patterns on the front at about 5K. I finally replaced them about 6.5K.
At highway speeds they would make an annoying waah waah waah and become pretty vibey due to the wear.
From other reviews, they seem to last OK on some other bikes, but I wouldn't purchase them again for mine.

Overall I am very pleased with the Tour Master Air Pants.
Pros:
- Flow a ton of air. Very comfortable in 90+ heat
- Good quality construction
- Comfortable touring fit provides all day comfort
- Tall lengths available
- 2 way liner system for rain and thermal protection
- Multi- position armor is comfortable on bike.
- Zips past the knee for easy on and off.
Cons:
- Velco on the pockets is a bit annoying. It serves a good purpose and the likelihood of anything falling out of your pocket is slim as a result, but it is hard to get anything out of them without them resealing themselves. I can live with it.
- I wish they had made the pockets waterproof. If you do get caught in a brief rain, it really isn't that big of a deal to keep riding in mesh. While it will soak through, it will also dry quickly. So if it looks like the rain will be brief, I keep riding. The problem , the pockets are mesh and offer *no* protection for your wallet and cell phone. If you have a tank bag or waterproof pocket on a jacket, make sure you put valuables in those. They should have made the pockets waterproof or added a waterproof inner pocket to one.

I picked this up as a part of the clearance sale from Revzilla. This is an awesome jacket for the money. Complete with Knox armor at the elbows, shoulders and back.
Pros:
- Knox Armor included, even in the back insert
- Built-in Waterproof Liner
- Zip-Out Waterproof Hoodie for under helmet
- Lots of Reflective Panels
- Removable Thermal Liner
- ID Pocket in Sleeve
- Waterproof Zipper
- Rear Venting
Cons:
- Wish it had the across the chest vents like the Freeway
- Wish zipper was covered rather than exposed, as the older model freeway was
- Lacks the zip off "thermo-neckie" of the Freeway

Overall I really like this glove a lot, but it doesn't come without some of the give and takes that go along with a hybrid. As another reviewer mentioned, but power level buttons can be a little difficult to find. It is easy enough if you set them before you put the gloves on, but if you later decide you want to increase or decrease the heat, they can take a little effort. Also the battery pack ads bulk to the wrist area. This can make it difficult to work with some jackets, as the gauntlet is not overly large, so it may not fit over or under the way you would hope.
That said, the convenience of the glove is that it is perfect on battery power for cooler days where you are overall dressed warm enough, but it gets a little cold on your fingers. You don't have to gear up with the heated liner, heat troller, etc. and connect all the wires. Put on the gloves, power them on, fingers become warmer. I look at the battery option for when heated grips alone may not be quite cutting it, but it isn't quite cold enough for wiring myself up. Perfect for the work/school commute or for when you know you may be coming home when it is later/colder outside than when you left.
For when you do want full heat and control, they wire up nicely to the jacket and heat controller for extended riding with warm hands and core. The only trade-off at that point being the bulk of the battery back still in the wrist area. I suppose the batteries could simply be taken out and put in a pannier, tank bag or pocket, but they don't bother me enough to do that.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I have been very pleased with the purchase of this jacket. I gave slight marks off for bang for buck, because I think it could be priced a little lower, but it isn't totally out of line for a gore-tex jacket either. I also took one mark down for durability, but of course increasing durability would come at the cost of weight and packability. There are always trade-offs.
The jacket is breathable, lightweight, packable and fairly tough for the low weight. It is comfortable to wear, and doesn't get clammy or make you feel too warm. The hood fits well under a helmet, preventing cold rain from sliding down your back. It is a really nice extra piece of gear to have with you, should you encounter an unexpected rain.
The jacket is stylish enough, and comfortable enough to wear off the bike as well. I use it for cooler summer nights where you need a little bit of a wind breaker, or for when it is raining whenever I get to my destination.
Sizing. I would say this jacket is true to size. I purchased the same size I would in other jackets and the fit is spot on. The cut is generous enough to fit over body armor, without looking too bulky over a T-Shirt. If you instead wear a padded jacket, the stow-away is really intended to be a rain-proof liner, rather than an over jacket, and works well in this regard. Not too bulky, not uncomfortable under a jacket.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I purchased these in December, so I can not yet comment on the effectiveness of the BeCool fiber to keep you dry and cool in the summer heat.
Otherwise these pants are great. The material is well constructed, with plenty of stretch. Armor pads can be moved and adjusted to where you want them to stay, and they seem to stay.
The biggest problem I have always had with motorcycle pants, is that the knee armor is everywhere except where I actually need/want it. Shy of purchasing a custom built suit, you are always at the mercy of the manufacturer, with maybe some slight adjustment available. Being taller, the high position for most pants was never high enough and often the pants were too loose allowing the armor to shift left or right. I never had much confidence in it being where it needed to be in the event of an off.
This problem is solved with the Forcefield Pro pants. You put them on, you adjust the pad over your knee, it stays over your knee, standing, sitting on the bike, it stays where it should. The thigh, hip and coccyx pads are all comfortable, and become more malleable as they warm, allowing an increase in comfort once you have had them on for a few minutes.
As others have mentioned, they do run a little big. When choosing a pair, keep in mind that these are intended to be a skin tight base layer. The material is very flexible and form fitting. Also materials such as BeCool, and DryMax don't really work to full effectiveness unless they are stretched across the skin making direct contact. This is also what helps the pads stay where you place them. They should NOT fit loosely. It is a base layer, not a stand alone pant, so keep in mind you will likely need to choose a size 1 below what you would normally choose for a riding pant.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This tire gives excellent grip in dry and wet conditions. Wet traction is outstanding. Tread life is very good. I did only mark it "good" in terms of grip, but refers mostly to it's off-road abilities. Like any tire in the 90/10 through 70/30 category (I would call the Anakee 2 a 75/25) grip is fine on maintained dirt roads. Get the bike into sand, mud or deep gravel and you really need a more agressive tire. Cornering - excellent, high speed stability - excellent, it does seem to track tar snakes a little more than my previous tire (Heidenau K-76), but not in a scary way, just more noticeably.

Arai SAI Max Vision Pinlock Insert w/ Brow Vents is a perfect addition to any Arai helmet using the SAI visor. The visor has an indent for this insert to sit, so that it can extend beyond the gaskets and out of the field of view. You don't get the outline of the pinlock around your visor as you did in the past. Worth the money if you are a Pinlock wearer and want to maximize your field of vision through the insert.
