I had originally purchased the Alaska GTX gloves and although they are a fantastic glove, the thickness of the insulation in the palm negated my heated grips. The Fusion GTX gloves are exactly what I was looking for. I have been using them in low 50 to high 40 degrees with heated grips and my hands have been warm and comfortable.
Recently I was able to test them in the mid 40's and all day rain. With my rain gear sleeves over the glove cuffs, my hands stayed completely dry (and warm). It took the following day for the exterior of the glove to dry out (the leather portion) but the inside was dry as when I put them on.
Although more expensive than other gloves, my experience is the performance difference between Gore-Tex and other proprietary "waterproof" liners/fabrics is absolutely worth the investment.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I recently purchased the Stop Go kit for a friend's birthday gift. I've had a kit of my own for years although mine does not have the CO2 cartridges as I carry a small compressor in my saddlebag. Fortunately I've never had to use the kit for myself but I have helped two other riders. Both times the kit worked as advertised and got both riders home. The kit has sturdy components and is easy to use. Hopefully the kit is only needed on rare occasions which makes the laminated instruction card handy for a quick refresher before performing the tire repair. Great product.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Airhawk R Seat Pad The last mile feels like the first, thanks to AIRHAWK's exclusive Shape Fitting Technology. This patented system eliminates painful points and promotes consistent blood flow for a longer, more comfortable ride. Memory foam can't do it. Gel seat can't do it. Only a genuine Airhawk R Seat cushion can do it. The neoprene AIRHAWK's stretchy material has a much more substantial and luxurious feel, especially at the end of a long day in the saddle. Features Center cutout area runs from front to back of cushion Re-designed cell geometry improves airflow under the rider no hot seat Back cutaway allows for a tail bone relief area with a tapered transition for increased comfort Cushion comes standard with cover, attachment loops, and cruiser straps Cushion Material Neoprene rubber Cover Material Stretch polyester material top cover. Side panels are 3-layer knit polyester providing air circulation. Fluid-proof, non-skid base is easy to clean and durable Dimensions 15.25 Wide x 14 Deep x 2 Tall (39.5 cm x 35.5 cm x 5 cm) 3 year limited warranty

Just finished a 4,300 mile trip from Tucson, AZ to upstate NY via Grand Canyon, Zion, Grand Teton, Yellowstone, & Mt Rushmore. My Triumph Rocket III Roadster seat is good for weekend day rides, 200-300 miles but I do start to feel it at the end of the day. In anticipation of the 500-600 miles days we would be riding I purchased the Airhawk R. It performed as advertised and gave me all-day comfort for 14 straight days of riding. Took a few miles to get used to riding on a cushion of air but now I won't ride without it. Even for a short 200 mile day, I'll still be using it.

This is a comfortable, well made glove that includes protection should a "get off" occur (I still call it a "crash"). But they are NOT waterproof. At least the pair I received are not. Forty minutes in heavy rain and gloves were soaked through, hands were drenched. I do like the gloves and now use them for cool to cold weather riding when a step down from full winter riding gloves is appropriate. I wouldn't recommend these gloves for rain protection due to the lack of waterproof capability (even with the Hydratex liner). If you desire a cool to cold weather riding glove, I would suggest saving the extra $20 for the $119 H2O model and purchase the same non-waterproof Summit version for $99.

Purchased this jacket in late April and have 3K+ miles wearing it in the Northeast so far. In low 40 degree temps, just a thermal top underneath the liner has kept me warm. Construction is solid. When recent temps reached mid 80's switched to a Joe Rocket Phoenix 5.0 (mesh) as the ventilation on the Atomic 4.0 is adequate for cooler weather but not ideal for summer riding. I anticipate this jacket will being used only for cool days from now until the end of summer and then back to daily use for autumn here in Upstate NY.
I own few Joe Rocket jackets as I believe they make a good product for the price. Although they advertise to be so, I've never had one that is actually waterproof. I carry traditional rain gear for that purpose. A light sprinkle is about all this jacket can handle. Although expected, I did at least test it last week during a 45 minute ride home in a torrential rainstorm. Water actually collected in the sleeves at which point a quick drop of the arms let the water pour out.
Since I didn't purchase it for rain protection, I am pleased with the performance of the jacket so far. Solid purchase for cool to cold weather.
