I ordered size 46, but these are pixie boots. To get into these boots you would have to be able to go on point like a ballerina, and flex your foot then to get into the rigid L shape. I managed to get them on wearing the thinnest socks I have, then wrestled them off & returned them. I agree with other reviewers, these are so small that I checked the label. TRQ are beautify made pixie boots.
No, I do not recommend this product.

I agonized for weeks over the Teren or the Sand 2 jacket, and by the time I decided, the Teren had sold out. I realize why. The jacket was delivered to me on Friday night, and on Saturday it was 60 degrees, snow was melting, & time for a 4 hour test ride from Boston to New York, returning in the dark on a Sunday night. As soon as I tried the jacket(s) on, I felt like the kid from a christmas story in a snowsuit. Perfectly comfortable, massively bulky. This is 3 jackets, as you see in the video. I immediately took them all apart, and I don't think I will ever be able to put the rain jacket in again. On the vid you see Anthony "here's one I have already unbuttoned...": there is a TINY button that hooks onto a TINY elastic loop, deep in the sleeve. If you can tie your shoe laces with one hand, in the dark, while riding a bicycle, you will have no problem with the system.
Riding in 55 degrees at 80 mph for 3 hours with the thermal lining in was an absolute pleasure. The jacket is a work of engineering: nothing flaps annoyingly, and it is endlessly adjustable to get a perfect fit at waist, arms and collar. 100% windproof. Brilliant. On the ride back, the temp dropped to 40, and I did start to get cold on the highway. No drafts, but I was debating putting on an electric vest.
This jacket was tested for about 8 hours in total in cold weather on highway, and it absolutely delivers.
Worst features: as I say, with all 3 jackets zipped-popered, velco'd and buttoned in, there is too much bulk for me. I wish they cut the price by $50 and sold the rain jacket as an extra. I carry a one-piece rain suit for the wet anyway, so of me it is a waste.
Second worst feature: ridiculously difficult to button in the sleeves to the other sleeves. I'll bet it takes you at least 10 minutes of frustration.
Third worst feature: the flimsy elastic wrist cuffs. The jacket looks like it will last a lifetime, those elastic cuffs, maybe a week. They make changing the liner more difficult, to impossible.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I don't have a lot of cash, so one of my main issues was "how much?". I needed a small bag for pocket stuff: camera, sunglasses, ez-pass, phone, printed directions ... marlboro.
This bag is the right size for that stuff, but not much more. It's easy to strap to the tank of the f800gs. I imagine I will leave the straps on all the time, and zip the bag on and off as needed. Not going to bother to seal the zips. In the position on my bike, it's not going to get that wet in the rain, and if it is pouring I'll put my stuff in a ziplock than trust a smartphone in there. The zips are new and a bit stiff, but they look covered anyway.

I wear these a lot. I dual sport, adventure ride, and tour in these pants. They do it all. Baggy enough to easily fit over knee-shin, over armor & hard shorts for spirited off road riding and will easily go over boots. They look awesome and they flow a massive amount of air to keep you cool.
I have used them as over trousers, and for the price I'm ordering a slightly smaller pair in black. The white is great for brutal summer heat off road riding, but i'd like to wear something a bit less noticeable for commuting.
worth a mention that I get these things filthy with mud and sweat, and just put them in the washing machine and hang dry. Can't beat these pants. Most of the things you buy for a bike cost HUNDREDS like flashy jackets and great helmets... these pants are cheap and work brilliantly.

Schuberth C3 Pro Hi Vis Helmet The new Schuberth C3 Pro has been redesigned to improve on the original C3, which was already one of the quietest and most technologically advanced helmets ever produced. The rear spoiler, which has been further optimized in extensive wind tunnel testing, turns the C3 Pro into a real sport helmet which also demonstrates outstanding aerodynamic properties at high speeds in excess of 100 mph. With its enhanced aeroacoustics of 82 dB(A) at 100 km/h the C3 Pro is one of the quietest helmets in the world. The C3 Pro also incorporates two integrated antennas for increased ranges and better FM radio reception prepared for the fully integrated communication unit SRC-System. The inner lining, made of carefully selected materials such as COOLMAX, Interpower and Thermocool, has been extensively re-shaped and redesigned and sets new benchmarks with respect to comfort. New or Updated Features Redesigned shell is more aerodynamic and provided more downforce at higher speeds with little buffeting Interior helmet sound levels have been reduced to 82 dB(A) at 60 mph C3 84 dB(A) Interior liner has been completely redesigned with fewer seams and a more universal, interior fit Improved EPS with integrated antenna for SRC-System which improves radio and Bluetooth range New micro-lock ratchet chin strap Larger reflective panels on neckroll Improved faceshield ratcheting Integrated sun visor has a new look and improved quality Acoustics A quiet helmet means active safety for the motorcyclist. This permits the rider to concentrate on riding particularly at higher speeds. Many hours in the Schuberth acoustics wind tunnel have ensured that the C3 Pro is quiet. The comprehensive acoustics package with optimized helmet shell, wind deflector and ergonomic shape of the neck padding make the C3 Pro at 82 dBA one of the quietest helmets of all. Acoustics package makes helmet quiet Installation of a wind deflector enables the aeroacoustics and consequently the noise level to be improved still further. Only 82dB(A) at 100 km per hour (with naked bikes) Outer Shell The outer shell of the C3 Pro is offered in two helmet shell sizes and combines an aerodynamically optimal shape with excellent protection. It is manufactured using Schuberth's typical compression molding process and thus permits great stability and a low weight. Shell material S.T.R.O.N.G. fiber Helmet shell technology from SCHUBERTH permits low weight Glass fiber with a special resin added is compressed in a vacuum at high pressure to form a helmet shell which is exceptionally sturdy Perfected aerodynamics for higher speeds Upward lift 0! Directionally stable No oscillatory tendency No buffeting Spoiler integrated into the helmet shell SRC-System Ready The C3 Pro is by default equipped to accommodate the SCHUBERTH SRC-System C3 Pro (sold separately). To guarantee ideal radio reception for you, the C3 Pro is already equipped with two integrated antennas to boost reception and a Bluetooth connection. Optimum reception at all times Bluetooth antenna for wireless mobile, GPS and intercom connections to other SRC-System owners FM and Bluetooth antennas integrated into the helmet for optimum reception EPS The helmet shell of special EPS foam is modular in design to ensure optimal shock absorption. This complex segmentation guarantees enhanced force absorption and distribution and maximum safety. Made of specially optimized EPS foam Complex multizone foaming allows optimal shock absorption Inner Lining A special inner lining of the C3 Pro which was developed according to the innovative Comfort Fit concept ensures that the helmet fits comfortably and securely in all situations. The combination of carefully selected COOLMAX and Thermocool materials and the additional use of Interpower coatings also make the inner lining a highly-effective moisture removal and cooling system. COOLMAX pad system, completely removable and washable (hand wash, 30C) Optimized fit Variable for effective ventilation Adjustable for summer/winter Allergen-free Antibacterial Removable comfort cheek pads and head band pads Ventilation The C3 Pro is equipped with a further development of the proven C3 ventilation system. Thanks to the new design of the ventilation elements, the supply of fresh air is increased by up to 60. The combination of multipath channels in the EPS foam shell and the head/chin/mouth ventilation ensure that fresh air is distributed effectively over the entire head area. A.R.O.S. and Neck Strap The Anti-Roll-Off System (A.R.O.S.) especially developed by SCHUBERTH is provided as a safety feature in every SCHUBERTH motorcycle helmet. It ensures that the chinstrap is closed and correctly adjusted The helmet cannot pivot off the head from behind The risk of contact between the chin section of the helmet and the chin or throat of the rider is minimized due to the small angle of tilt The consequences of the helmet coming into contact with the chest as the result of an accident are reduced Precise setting of the chinstrap length through adjustment on both sides Micro-lock ratchet lock Faceshield The EasyChange visor mechanism makes changing visors extremely quick and simple without use of tools. City position offers maximum ventilation while traveling at slower speeds Pinlock visor prevents shield from fogging DOT and ECE certified.

I bought this helmet last week, & will be eating domino pizza and soup for 2 months to pay for it. Monster expensive, but I will keep it (I hope) 5 years, & I ride 7,000 miles or more a year. Over that period, it matters.
Fit: its a modular helmet. so the pressure point is over the brow. It feel weird after a normal full face, but get used to it after 10 minutes.
Airflow: Amazing. So much air flow I had a cold spot on my head at 45 degree weather. I have never closed the vents on my Arai: I closed the vent on this to stay warm. There is HUGE airflow.
Noise: I still need earplugs. I read they wind tunnel tested to 100mph: I do not think so. 100kmh, maybe... so when you cruise at 75 or higher on slab, you still need earplugs. I think the 65 page manual says "it will be so quiet you may not feel how fast you are going, so check the speedo" Ha! Really? NB: I might be harsh: at 6'1", I ride a gs with a tall seat and a tall windshield, if I were lower down maybe it would be as quiet as advertised.
Sun-visor: Amazing. How did I go these years without being able to flip down a pair of sunglasses. I'm never going back to wearing sunglasses, ever. How anybody sees under it is beyond me. Maybe the helmet isn't on straight, or they have not lowered the sunshade th whole way. It's pretty much impossible to look under it.
Pin-Lock: Amazing. I put the shield in this morning. I left Boston in 38 degree rain, and the visor never fogged up. Huge safety feature for me at least, to be able to ride visor-down and not bother with fogging up.
Colour, Hi Viz: get it. Cars see you. The 17 yr old me would never wear high viz, the 47 yr old me may not leave the house again without high viz.
Weight: its heavier than my old Arai. I can't see what the fuss is about "super light"... My Arai Q 7RR is 3.4 on the bathroom scale, the C3 pro is 3.6. Its a bathroom scale, so not exact, but the Arai is lighter. Neither are heave anyway, can't see why it is an issue.
Conclusion: there is hype about weight and wind noise, that I think honestly is garbage. It is a great helmet, it has great features and great airflow. Very expensive, and better last 5 years.

I am not an MX rider. I ride dual sport bikes, in Nevada desert on vacation, and in the North East. DR650, f800gs. I bought this primarily for protection, secondly because I ride in Summer, and thirdly because it looks wicked. I wear this over a cotton t shirt, and over the top put a XXL MX shirt. This is all mesh, so the air flow is really good. I have seen guys who just put a waterproof jacket over the top for the rain, which seems a good idea. I've tested the crash protection many times now, and never had a bruise or a scratch. Riding in the mountains of the North East, usually is steaming hot in June/July, and usually I come down onto rocks. this is perfect for me. Fit seems endlessly adjustable.

AltRider BMW F800GS Skid Plate Adventurous routes are fun for you, but can pose a threat to your engine. Protect it in style from rocks, dirt and kicked up debris by installing the AltRider Skid Plate for the BMW F800 GS. Made of 3/16 inch (4.75 mm) anodized aluminum, the skid plate offers coverage to the oil filter, heat exchanger and header pipe. It closely conforms to the underside of your bike for protection that doesnt sacrifice ground clearance. This design incorporates four flanges into its shape, creating a robust piece that deflects dangerous debris from your bike. It attaches with OEM fasteners that are completely protected, eliminating the possibility of snags. A 3/16 inch (4.75 mm) stainless steel bracket is also included for mounting, and it maintains the BMW rubber mount for ensured motor safety. The bracket extends the life of the rubber mounts by providing an extra cushion on bumpy rides, while also keeping the skid plate from twisting and shearing the mounts.

I have taken my f800gs on long 8 hour rallies and 2 day Dual Sport Adventure Weekends (the Berkshire Big Bash in MA, the Seven Mountain in PA). A big bike like the GS can do way more than you think it can, when you push it, but you have to make some changes to stock to protect it. I don;t have alot of money (my ex wife is now loaded) so spent a lot of tim making the decision on what to get. Must-have for offroad: tires (obviously) then bark busters to save the levers on the bars, a set of crash bars to protect the body, and this bash plate. This bash plate is a work of art; every time a stone hit it, it "dings" like a Swiss Cow Bell, and you know you just saved $100 bucks of damage. Off road in the north east is all rock: even fire roads have rocks the front wheel will pick up and "ding" into the engine and exhaust if not protected. Get this bash plate. It is enormous, covers everything, and is bullet proof. Comparing this to the small plastic plate which comes as stock is comparing a crash helmet to a baseball cap. It is easy (and fun) to fit, and it is precision cut and formed. Mine ha seen huge abuse, slamming over rocks, pivoting over logs, through water, the works, and it looks brilliant still.

REV'IT! Pacific H2O Rain Suit In developing the PACIFIC H20 rain suit, one of the 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

The rain suit was tested today in torrential rain for 3 hours at highway speeds. You would be nuts not to own this suit. I have the high-vis, and it is one of the best products I own. Why? well whoever said it's not waterproof must have forgotten to zip it up. It is rubber lined: it is impossible that it is not waterproof. One piece is functional. I can't understand why anyone would buy a 2 piece. I wore this today over body armor with a klim camel back. I put it on over my mx boots, which were a tight fit, to get on, but who would buy a suit that they need to take their boots off to get on? Imagine hopping around without shoes in a cloud break. The design is brilliant. This makes me want to try buying other products by the RevIt.

I bought these boots for a 5 day trip from vegas in the desert. They offer huge protection... I came down hard more times than I can remember on a rented DR, and these boots are armor plate for your from shins down. 120 degree heat, not a problem.
When I came back to CT I rode out on my 800GS without adjusting the switchgear: HUGE mistake. These boots are thick at the toe and have very little ankle flexibility. You have to adjust your gear shift leave to accommodate the toe to upshift.
Second issue that is a bit of a pain is that they are not fast to put on. 4 buckles, all need to be adjusted, takes for ever. Not a boot you throw on to jump on the bike for a short trip. These are riding boots, not walking boots.

I am 6'1", 220lbs, wear 36 x 34 Levis. I ordered the size 36, and they fit like they were made to measure. I saw in the video all the slack at the ankles. Not mine, they are perfect (bit long, so when I am on the bike they fit. The material is supersoft, and worn over regular work trousers move & bend without a problem.
The only issue I have is the armor in the knees is a. pathetic, b. falls a bit low on my leg, and doesn't seem adjustable.
The airflow is great, close to wearing shorts.
Bought these to wear to the railroad station to scrunch into my backpack: perfect fold to nothing, and are lightweight
