Great value for the dollar. Good vision. Chin strap is very long. Minor buzzing and grabby at freeway speeds, but excellent value for the money. Awesome casual market helmet for weekend warriors.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Great helmet. Comfortable, removable/washable pads. Decent noise protection, given this type of helmet. Face shield is easy to use and seals well in the down position. Excellent visibility. Helmet vents have good air flow. We'll see how it does in the CA summer heat. Beak does grab air a bit, but most DS helmets deal with the same issue. I minimized that issue by buying a little windshield extension for my R1200GS (happened to buy it in the past, not as a result of this issue.) As a result, almost no grab from the air unless I stretch my head to the side of the windshield.
Good fit and finish for this price range. I did see some very minor evidence of "a tired guy on the assembly line." (One of the openings on the bill was carved out a tiny bit sloppy- not sure if that was a human error or machine error. Totally not a big deal to me.) Also, some of the plastic parts such as the little vent handles are on the economy side, but that is expected for this price range. Again, not a deal-breaker at all.
Helmet size ran a little large, so when you order, go one size down if you're in doubt. Great customer service on the exchange for a Medium (I'm normally a large.)
The chin strap is very long, and I had a lot of slack left after adjusting for a snug fit. A few folds and a zip-tie, and voila, clean solution. Again, no deal breaker.
If you enjoy dual sport rides and don't want to spend $500+ for a Shoei DS Hornet, this helmet is an excellent value. Thumbs up.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I invested in these boots after I took a minor spill that damaged my calf muscle, forcing 6 weeks of recuperation. These boots have beautiful fit and finish, as well as giving me confidence due to their excellent protection of foot, ankle, shin and calf.
The boots are not fully broken in yet, however they are breaking in as expected for a boot of this type.
If you like dual sport and don't want a super stiff motocross boot, this is your boot. Excellent quality, great features and protection.
Yes, I recommend this product.
