The camera takes pretty good video either mounted on my bike or helmet. Quality is excellent. Unfortunately, it does not have a zoom feature like the cheaper version.
The first one I purchased had to be sent back due to battery and power issues, but Revzilla replaced it.

Shoei Neotec Modular Helmet Evolving on previous designs, Shoei has revamped its modular helmet style with a streamlined and attractively sculpted shape that conveys the feel of freely moving through the outdoors in the Neotec Modular Helmet. Overall shell size is kept compact by incorporating the internal sun visors open/close mechanism inside all ventilation mechanisms are shaped and positioned in such a way as to reduce any possible drag. A redesigned aerodynamic spoiler also helps to cut lift, reducing neck strain on long, cross country rides. In the Shoei Neotec all these features combine to create a premium helmet that excels in appearance, protection, comfort and performance. The Shoei Neotec Helmet's chin bar is connected to the same axis point and mechanism as its shield, minimizing extra parts. This also enables simultaneous closing of the shield with the chin bar, which is then held in place with an easy-open lock release button. The shield lock system offers secure closure or the ability to keep the shield slightly open to allow for increased airflow. With the Shoei Neotec Helmet, Shoei now includes a built-in sun shield, the QSV-1. The visor tucks neatly away beneath a non-intrusive shell built into the helmets liner, and can be lowered with the easy control of a sliding button. Shoei Neotec Helmet Features Face Shield Features Easily operable lever mechanism Anti-fog, anti-scratch, 99 UV blocking New Pinlock-ready CNS-1 faceshield Wider and taller than the CX-1V that it replaces Includes Pinlock insert 3D injection molding process ensures a distortion-free view Improved Ventilation and Aerodynamics Newly designed vortex generators pull air through helmet 276 more airflow than Multitec Added inlets and outlets Vents are flush against helmet to maintain aerodynamics 5-Ply Shock-Absorbing Fiber Shell 3 shell sizes AIM Multi-Composite construction Lightweight yet strong Shell-integrated spoiler reduces lift and drag during high-speed riding Dual EPS Liner Multi-density EPS for optimal protection Two vents funnel fresh air through the EPS liner Dual liner channels route and disperse air evenly throughout the helmet EPS liner in chin bar All new interior Fully removable 3D interior liner Top center pad is removable and washable Improved cheekpad design allows better fit with eyeglasses Included chin curtain can be inserted into the chin bar to reduce turbulence and noise All Neotec Helmets sold in the US have a double D-ring closure Note Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States

A fairly good helmet, but I think the cost is more than it is worth. I have owned several "combination" helmets. The face shield is rather difficult to open while riding, but perhaps this will change as I break it in. The helmet is a bit quieter than ones I have had before, but when you open the vents, that all goes away.
Overall, I was a bit disappointed with Shoei. I expected much better for the price. I also wish they would have one in hi-viz green.
No, I do not recommend this product.

The gloves kept my hands warm in temperatures in the high 40s, however they do not get as warm as I would expect. The battery did not last nearly as long as the company says.
When set at anything below the high number, you can barely feel any heat, and they simply become a heavy glove. Not sure how effective they would be in colder temperatures.
They are very bulky and my hands got tired trying to grip the handles of my motorcycle.
For nearly $200, I expected something much better.
No, I do not recommend this product.

So far this has been a pretty good boot for the price. Comfortable on and off the bike. Will see how it does in the hot weather. I would have rated it higher had it been waterproof.
Free shipping is great, but UPS takes quite some time to go across the country to my home.
Yes, I recommend this product.

First one I bought was too small, had to send it back, and Revzilla sent me another right away, which fit perfectly. Excellent customer service. I have not had a chance to wear it in the warm weather yet.
Yes, I recommend this product.

 Olympia GT Air Transition Jacket (Size SM)
Olympia GT Air Transition Jacket (Size SM)
Olympia GT Air Transition Jacket The concept of a solid body jacket that transforms to an air mesh jacket makes sense if the transition is quick and hassle free. The problem of storing or losing removable panels must also be addressed. Our all seasons GT jacket tackles these issues by offering a roll down, hide away, Mega Vent Panel System that transitions from solid body, to adjustable airflow construction in seconds. The GT is also equipped with a sporty, waterproof, two stage, Thermolite lined, inner jacket giving it multi season, all weather versatility. An authentic Cordura shell with 2000 denier Cordura reinforcement insures maximum abrasion resistance. Outer shell constructed in 500 and 2000 denier Dupont Cordura MVS Mega Vent Panel System at front and back Extended length 12 arm vents Waterproof, Thermolite insulated two stage liner jacket Removable CE approved Motion Flex armor at elbows and shoulders Removable CE approved Motion Flex articulated back protector Cool mesh airflow lining Custom Fit detailing at collar, cuffs, elbows and waist. Comfort neoprene collar insert 3M Scotchlite reflective piping at front, sides and back. 8 connecting zipper for pants Seven storage pockets Two Stage Waterproof Liner Jacket - Sturdy wind and water proof rip stop nylon shell with removable Dupont Thermolite insulation, rib collar, two water proof pockets and interior cell phone pocket.

So far this jacket has performed well in the cooler weather. I am anxious to see how it will do this summer.
There were a couple of issues, however. First, on me, unless I overtighten the collar opening, the velcro rubs my neck and is very uncomfortable. I have an average size neck.
Second, the side pockets are set much too far back. I really have to strain to reach into the pockets and get something. Other than those things, I really like the jacket.
Yes, I recommend this product.
