A bum stole my last one, Only reason I would ever need to buy this product again. This cover takes alot of abuse and the old one lasted me years. Water repellence does go over time, but we're talking about a few years. Even then its just damp on the contact spots. the rest of the bike stays dry to the bone. Does also help block UV light so the cover does fade over time. Elastic on the bottom secures nicely and stays snug over the bike even in high winds. Grommet holes are great for locking up with a wire lock if your in the city which I will have to do now. Also recommend the Nelson half cover for casual or every day cover also waterproof.

I almost rather use this all the time over my full cover. Its quicker to get on and very light. I have had it out in the rain a few times kept the top bike nice and dry. Comes with nice attachments on the sides to wrap around your pegs to hold the cover down. There is also a velcro strap in the front that can be secured around your forks. Also another two loops in the back to go around the back passenger pegs or around your pipes. Size compresses down to around a liter soda bottle. I know Its still too large to fit in to most sport bike storage. Its small enough that I carry in my messenger bag or under a seat net. Reason durability is good, is that I already see some threading come loose in some parts of the cover(month after purchase). I have owned nelson rigg covers in the past and I have had the same thing happen. The cover still lasted forever with this. Also recommended the Defender 3000 cover which I also own and use for long rain periods where I am not riding or in winter when it snows.

These pants were slimmer then I thought they were going to be. So they are pretty stylish. But not really meant as an overpant unless you buy larger. Since its not high end waterproof the breathing and venting of sweat is not so great if your going in and out of buildings if your commuting and wearing these all day. Have worn these in 50 degree rain and was warm and dry. Pockets don't seal other then the back pockets so front pockets do get damp. Its also a bit snug in the crotch and thighs. And I don't have muscular legs so it could be an issue to others. The pants do flare out slightly after the knees for boots and room for knee inserts. The material also feels like its made from a tougher material then snowboarding pants and reinforced in places for motorcycle riding.

Great boot solid feel. the color is a solid black. Already rode in rain and couldn't have been more dry. Sizing is the big issue that everyone wants to know with this boot. It does run small, people say get 1 size larger. I am a 8 and got a 9 and felt that it was a half size still too large. I wear some thick wool socks and have been fine. Been riding in NY 70 degree weather with the wool socks and walking around all day and have been fine. So it should breath well. Will see what happens when the 90's hit NY. I have wide flat feet and have to say these have plenty of room side to side. For those that need more arch support your going to have to buy inserts cause its pretty flat. There really isn't any options with how tight it can zip up other then the velcro around the ankle. So if your a stickler for over the foot support this might not be for you.
