Bought these to replace the ones cut off by the paramedics after I was hit by a car in 2011. This is some of the best armor barring full leathers! If you want to go for a ride but don't want to sweat like a pig in your leathers, these things are the trick! The armor is competition grade, and it works great! It is a bit pricey for what may appear to be long johns with pads, but it really works, and you don't have to get all kitted up all the time with this stuff. You can be fully protected and look like a normal person.

This is my second pair, loved the first... They were trashed when I was hit by a car in 2011, so I replaced them with the same thing. Great boot, great fit, actually waterproof! I have been stuck in some nasty storms and my feet were the driest part of me. Like the style and A-Stars sells some cool magnesium toe sliders you can put on to replace the plastic ones if you want something a bit tougher. Great boot!

I have had this jacket for a couple of seasons now and still love it! I hate to ride without any protection and this is as close as I dare get to riding in a t-shirt! Or at least it feels pretty close to me. Here in the Mid-Atlantic there is no escaping the humidity so, you are bound to get a bit warm. But, keep it moving and this jacket stays well ventilated. Sufficient protection to keep you safe as well. I was struck by a car in 2011, wearing this jackets predecessor, and it did it's job! Highly recommended!

Website stock image does not reflect revised touch-screen contact patch which is actually at the very tip of the index finger and thumb vice the pad at the tip in other gloves. Both gloves have the touch-screen patches. It makes for easier use of whichever touch sensitive device you use (in my opinion). I like this new glove a lot. I had modified my previous Rev'It gloves by purchasing the conductive thread and sewing it in, which made for a sometimes iffy operation, this glove works all the time.

Great product! Have this mounted on multiple helmets using both the clamp and the adhesive, both methods ensure it is on and stays on. The system works great. Previous bike-to-bike and rider-to-rider communication system was the Autocomm which was the best on the market at that time. This Sena system is incredible, no cables, aside from the wire I have for my molded in-ear speakers (ear buds). Works great for intercomm, GPS, cellphone, iPod, or any Bluetooth audio source. Highly recommended.
Yes, I recommend this product.
