These were purchased for the Bell Star (Snell 2005) which was the first year of the redesigned Bell Star in 2008. The styling is slightly different than the pads that came with the helmet in that the replacements have webbing between the lower and upper pad. This doesn't cause any issue and the snaps line up correctly. Replacement color of the firm pads is black whereas the original pads were silver. Not sure if the silver pads were just for my version of the helmet or not but the two different colors next to each other don't look bad either, so it's a moot point. I prefer the firm pads over the soft pads because of the snug fit it provides in the helmet. Hats off the Bell for making different sizes in the pads, these make a great customized fit with the helmet. 50mm Firm with a Medium shell are perfect for me.

I've had this jacket for about a year and a half and probably put about 15K miles on it in all kinds of weather. The jacket is very comfortable to wear with the soft CE approved armor. Sleeves have two adjustable snaps on each arm with a velcro wrist strap and there's adjustable velcro waist straps around the bottom of the jacket. Included with the jacket are the two removable liners. One is a waterproof nylon liner and the other is a quilted liner. With both liners in, this is a good three season jacket and if you want to put a sweatshirt under that, it could be a 4 season jacket, as long as the 4th season stays in the 30's. In the summer is when this thing shines. The Armor-Link mesh material lets a lot of air hit your body which is a lifesaver when the temps hit the 90's. The stitching on the jacket is very heavy duty, but is lacking on the waterproof liner. The waterproof liner hem on the wrists came loose after about a year of ownership and the liner had only been used about 30 times. While not a deal breaker and very insignificant for a summer jacket, it was annoying. Getting most of it's use in Florida, I find the downside to all the mesh in the front panels of the jacket are bugs, love bugs in particular. They get caught in the mesh and require a little bit of effort to remove completely. The pockets are ample, inside of the jacket and the thermal liner and have velcro closures or velcro flaps. The two exterior pockets are medium sized and are easily accessed with gloves on due to the large zipper pulls. Overall, I'm very happy with this jacket...cool in the summer, warm in the winter, comfortable to wear, sturdy construction and doesn't look hideous. As for protection, I've seen two jackets after hitting the pavement at 55mph and the jackets were ruined, but the riders were fine. The only issue was that on one of the rider's jacket, the arms weren't cinched tight enough which allowed his arm to roll off the CE armor slightly, so he got a little rash there. Fit is important for safety, so utilize the snaps on the arms to get a good fit.
