I bought this helmet with the intent for only my son to use it. Turns out a size small also fits my wife, so I defiantly got my money's worth. I've taken my son just under 100 miles with the helmet on and he hasn't complained once! Didn't comment on protection and durability because there hasn't been a moment when that's been tested.

I love these boots. I wear them every time I ride. The zipper's a bit stiff, but it feels solid so I don't worry about it breaking. Haven't rode in a downpour, but have rode through puddles and in slight rain and my feet were bone dry and warm. However, when riding on a hot day my feet have been sweaty but nothing a good pair of socks and foot powder couldn't fix. Defiantly comfortable and I have total faith that they'll protect my feet, ankles and shins. A little tough to feel the shifter, but I've gotten used to it so it's not so much an issue as it once was. I have slipped a little on liquids on the ground, so the grip on the soles is my only gripe. Now, I look before I rest my feet, so problem solved.

Icon Overlord Textile Jacket With all the pattern engineering of the Overlord leather, but executed in a nylon chassis, the Overlord textile represents possibly the best value in textile motorcycle jackets. The durable nylon chassis, combined with large panels of breathable Fighter mesh, provides valuable protection while maintaining comfort. A full complement of internal CE impact protectors confirm the jackets legitamacy. Finally, the Overlord's precurved arms and strategic flex zones position the rider in an sportbike oriented attack posture. The Overlord textile - ready for whatever the streets may hold. Icon attack fit Durable nylon textile chassis Removable Icon CE field armor impact protector elbow and shoulder Removable Icon dual-density foam back pad Gathered elastic flex panels on elbows and shoulders Strategically placed fighter mesh panels for ventilation Removable insulated wind resistat vest Upgradable to stryker CE back protector

The liner does an alright job, but during early morning rides I found that the cold air cuts right through the jacket. It's great for the summer, but I'll be upgrading soon to the leather. Other than that, the jacket it awesome! Low sided coming around a curve and I barely felt a thing, dusted myself off, made sure my bike was good to go and rode home.

Excellent Pack for a simple carrying load

I think this bag is awesome! I use it mostly for carrying my work jacket and shoes and there's still a little room to spare. Even bought a pair of size 6 boy's shoes for my son and it fit no problem, the shoe box included. It's got plenty of pockets, two on either side of the waist strap and one of either shoulder straps that fits my phone perfectly.
A couple things you can't see in this picture the top dome part of the pack is another compartment, just big enough for misc. stuffs. I was thinking it could hold an extra face-sheild of my Bell Star helmet, but no dice. Also on the very bottom there's two zippers, one holds a cargo net to hold your helmet which straps to the D clips and the other is for a rain cover. Each is held in two separate pouches at the bottom of the main compartment.(So don't try and pull them out like I almost did). Inside there's a separation for a laptop, a clip for keys or things that need to be clipped, a couple pen holders, another pocket and two mesh nets.
As for the feel; it's great! I haven't worn it without a jacket, but there's mesh padding that goes against your back. With my jacket on, I hardly notice it's there. It's shape doesn't cause any (noticeable) drag from what I've felt thus far at +60mph and it's doesn't interfere when I check my blind spots. I noticed that my helmet hits the top part of the pack when I look up, but I honestly don't find myself looking at the sky all that often; I did it just to test the range of motion.
Overall, if you're looking for something that can carry a simple load with no problem this might be the pack for you. Sorry for this being long winded.
Pros Comfortable, Fashionable, Rugged
Yes, I recommend this product.
