I wear prescription eyeglasses, but have prescription inserts in my goggles. This makes it so much nicer, mounted on the front strap of my R25, to swap out with ease.
Yes, I recommend this product.

An innovative extremely efficient load-carrying system designed for motorcycle riders. Unlike conventional harness systems the load is carried on the hips chest, transferring the majority of the load away from the shoulders and thereby preventing the neck strain experienced with regular rucksacks. Ergonomically designed with no arm restriction for long distance comfort on a motorcycle. Features Main compartment - YKK oversize zip Side access pocket with 4-point load compression Internal magazine sleeve, which can accommodate a 14 laptop Internal key-clip SUPERSPACE 5mm airspace fabric Oversize YKK coil zips Upgraded harness to enable a wider range of rider to get the perfect Kriega fit Fully hydration compatible - reservoir relocated from outer pocket to main compartment Optional Kriega 3 Liter Hydrapak + Tube avaliable (sold separately) Hydration tube routes out and over the shoulder through a covered duct located top, center of the main compartment Reflective web loops on sides of pack to facilitate easier fastening of US-10 expansion pack Schoeller DYNATECH with integrated 3M Scotchlite reflectivity 1000D Dupont Cordura base harness 420D nylon ripstop - lightweight yet extremely strong CNC 6061-T6 alloy buckles Expanding outer pocket 10 year guarantee 25-liter capacity 520mm(H) x 300mm(W) x 160(D) mm

If you ride with a backpack, this is the one you need.

I've been riding with all sorts of carrying bags, from a solo bag on my Sportster to a tank bag on my KTM 690 SMC to a 12 year old Dana Designs daypack for long trips, laptop hauls, etc... I've never been completely sold, but finally, THIS is the way to go for a daily rider like myself.
With a riding jacket, it's so frustrating to put on and take off a standard backpack. With the Kriega R25, you adjust the straps once, and forget about it. When you unsnap the front closure, you've got more than enough room to maneuver it around your jacket. No more having to take off your jacket just to get your pack off. And the whole "Quadloc" system sits all the weight perfectly on your hips, chest, and back, leaving your arms free and your shoulders happy. It's just one of those products you can't describe or understand until you use it.
The build quality is pretty stellar. You can tell they didn't hold back a stitch here and there to save money. It's all there, everything needed to keep it going for years to come.
My one disappointment (and this was more on my part of expectations) is that I figured the document sleeve against the back panel would fit a good sized laptop. I have to haul mine to work and back every day, and it's a very thick, 15" laptop with a battery that sticks out the back. It doesn't fit. But with the way the compression straps work, and the way the backpack distributes the weight, it all holds solid against my back, and doesn't budge. So it became a non-issue after a few days of figuring out how I was going to pack it.
My biggest excitement was actually using the Kube pocket along with this pack. I wear prescription glasses, but have prescription inserts in my goggles, and it's always a hassle to stow them in a backpack, having to take it on and off every time I switch out. Now I just throw them in the Kube on my front strap. No fuss...
Yes, I recommend this product.

Hope to never have to try it out, but for $30, you can't beat it. The only thing I would like is if the protector went further up and came down just a couple more inches, but that is really just a limitation on the design of the jackets. Can't even feel it in the jacket while riding, so there is no reason NOT to get it. Just do it for the piece of mind...
Yes, I recommend this product.

What can you say, seems like they would do the job. My only gripe is that being hard plastic on the outside they can bind when you're moving just every once in a while...
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought this balaclava to replace my old one that was too short and would pull out from my collar, leaving me exposed. This one does a great job, and the mesh over the nose allows you to breathe easily, without letting your nose get too cold under your helmet as I wear goggles with an Arai XD-3, and usually keep the visor cracked. My old one was Windstopper too, but it would not allow you to breathe if you had it up over your nose. This one is great.
Yes, I recommend this product.
