Icon Overlord Long Gloves Strong, light, and ready for duty - the Overlord glove is the finest glove Icon has ever offered. We started with a Kangaroo palm - thin for ultimate feedback form your controls yet more abrasion resistant than cowhide. Critical impact areas were treated to reinforcements of Pittard's Keratan - a flexible yet significantly enhanced abrasion resistant goatskin. The backhand is constructed from Icon's Battlehide goatskin - forming a tough yet lightweight barrier against asphalt incursion. A full compliment of injection molded armor plating provides additional defensive measures. The Overlord also features a floating knuckle design which allows for maximum articulation while reducing hand fatigue. The overall effect of these materials choices and pattern engineering is instant comfort, protection, and mobility. If you're in the market for a full gauntlet glove slip on an Overlord and judge for yourself. Abrasion resistant premium grade Battlehide goatskin backhand Kangaroo palm Pittards Keratan abrasion zones Injected thermoplastic knuckle and wrist protection Injection molded wrist plate Precurved fingers Aramid stitching

ALCON,
I've owned these gloves for one riding season in Germany which equates to roughly 7 months at best. My Icon overlord kevlar stitching is coming apart in roughly 5 seperate areas at the webbing of the fingers, 2 of which have gaping, 1/2 holes that are spreading each day. Bear in mind, I'm not a leather repair specialist and I do not have ready access to kevlar thread. Additionally, the large velcro strap that secures the gauntlet style glove around your wrist has self destructed from day one, and one glove has disconnected, revealing nothing more than shredded velcro.
If you're contemplating buying this "high quality" item, then look elsewhere and save yourself from buying a new pair of $155 gloves every season!
No, I do not recommend this product.

REV'IT! Pacific H2O Rain Suit In developing the Pacific H20 rain suit, one of REV'IT!'s main goals was to make it easy to put on in just a few seconds about the time it takes you to get soaked during a heavy shower. Mission accomplished. The solution lies not only in the long, diagonal front closure, but especially in the newly developed, non-stick, PVC-free coating on the inside of the Power Nylon outer shell. The result is a 100 waterproof, breathable, and very practical all-weather companion that will meet the demands of any rider. Convenient features include a storage pocket on the upper leg. For safety, reflection panels on the shoulders and lower legs ensure great visibility. If you need to stand out in traffic even more, the Pacific H2O comes in a high-visibility neon yellow option. PROTECTION FEATURES Outer shell PVC-free PWROxford with PU coating, PVC-free PWROxford EN471 with PU coating (in Neon Yellow color only) Waterproofing 100 waterproof Composition 100 polyester (100 polyurethane coating) Visibility reflection at shoulders and legs, reflective logo at chest and back ERGONOMIC FEATURES Fit tour fit, regular Adjustability adjustment tabs at upper arm, cuffs and ankles Features PVC-free XL front zipper Elastic at waistline Includes transport bag Stash pocket on left leg EN343 certified

Being stationed overseas in Europe, it is tough to find a descent moto-gear company that ships from the United States. Let me tell you, Revzilla shipped my item in 7 days flat. I wore the H2O rainsuit over my armor yesterday during a rain storm in Germany, simply pulling over onto the sidewalk and donning the gear. It was amazing to ride through that much rain without getting wet. My only concern was that grease from the chain kicked up onto the yellow reflective portion, but I bought this suit to stay dry, not for a fashion show. Thanks Revzilla...you guys get it when others don't. I'll pass on the good word to other troops that ride in the local area.
Yes, I recommend this product.
