I bought this to use with the HJC RPHA Max modular helmet. The helmet is one of the lightest and I didn't want to add a lot of bulk. Installation and learning the menus is fairly easy. Sound quality is more than satisfactory.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I replaced my lace-up boots with these zipper/velcro closures. These fit well, are comfortable on all-day rides, and are not clunky to walk in. I haven't ridden in rain so I don't know how well they'll do in keeping my feet dry. The zipper tabs have velcro to prevent the zipper from opening while riding and the shin flap velcros over the top to seal the zipper. Very easy and fast to get on or off.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I replaced my Nolan N103 for this helmet and the difference is amazing. The weight, or lack thereof, is instantly noticeable. Getting it on and off is easier than the Nolan and the padding conforms well with my cheeks which reduces wind noise much better than any other helmet I've owned. Airflow (venting) is also much better than the Nolan. The only minor complaint and the reason I gave only 4 stars for features is because the inner visor fogs way too easily. The pinlock shield is fog-free but with the visor down, I have to crack the shield and open the chin vent to clear the visor. Small price to pay for an otherwise great helmet.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is my first pair of MC boots and I'm very happy with them. They fit slightly small so I went up a half size (I am a 10.5 and ordered 11.0) and they fit well. The boots are very light but still appear to be good foot/ankle protection. I wore these on two all-day rides and they were never uncomfortable riding or walking.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I have worn these on 2 rides for a total of 400 miles. They are warm and comfortable with both liners in (wind/rain & thermal) in ~50 degree temps. I moved the knee pads to the topmost position and they seem like they would help in a fall. They are understandably heavy but I have nothing to compare them to. One issue I have is the zipper used to join my jacket is sewed in the same as that of the jacket so they don't mate (like a male-to-male plug). I may bring them to a tailor to re-do one of the pieces if I find a real need to connect them.
Yes, I recommend this product.
