Dainese Double Down Gloves Ventilation and riding comfort even when the temperature rises is the concept that led to the development of the Dainese Double Down Glove. Outfitted with perforated mesh fabric on the back and inside of the fingers, allowing the airflow to surround the hands, and equipped with goatskin leather inserts on the knuckles and fingers, a reinforced palm, and adjustable cuff, the Double Down is characterized by excellent ergonomics and an excellent quality to price ratio. Features Net mesh fabric Palm in Amica Suede Goatskin inserts Reinforced palm Adjustable cuff strap Pre-curved finger Perforated mesh fabric Soft inserts

Initially I was happy. comfortable, good fit, good airflow. By the end of my first season of wearing these occasionally two fingertips and one thumb had worn through. I would estimate they lasted for about 40 hours on the road. Very disappointed, and the Dainese warranty doesn't cover wear and tear. Revzilla tried to make good by offering me a discount on a replacement, which was nice, but now I've spent a lot on summer gloves.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Holds my iphone securely. The floppiness other reviewers mentioned wasn't an issue for me...I can see how it would be for a camera, for for a phone it holds steady enough to be used and read while riding.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I used this in my Kreiga r25 pack during a week-long tour. Functioned great. The only issue is finding a place to secure the tube near your neck so it isn't flopping around like some alien appendage. I fashioned a little hook out of stiff wire and attached it to my backpack strap, you want one-hand operation obviously.
Yes, I recommend this product.

After measuring my front disc vent holes I was shocked to discover that this XX-6 model fits my 98 BMW r1200c. I guess this is because the beemer has dual front discs brakes, and so each one is smaller than what you'd find on other large bikes. For once the beemer accessory is cheaper! Much lighter and easier to carry with you than the big honking U-Lock that came with the bike. I've used it for a few weeks. No problems yet.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought this pack for a week-long tour. It worked very well, I was able to carry a pair of shoes, a change of clothes, my dock kit, and some art supplies along with the hydration pack. On my bike the pack sort of rests on the back seat while I'm riding so the weight was a non-issue. When it was hot I unclasped the front to let the air into my jacket and the pack remained fairly stable. I did get a little rain one day (1 hour of light showers) and the pack stayed dry inside. When I got home I threw my old pack away. This one is a keeper.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I'm 6'2", 185 lbs. I bought both the jacket and pants in size 52. They fit well although I wore ankle-high boots, and the pants rode up exposing a little bit of leg to the wind. No biggie, with full-size boots I'm sure they will be fine. I rode for 2 hours in 33 degree (F) with no windscreen in perfect comfort. I didn't need any extra covering for my neck. Jacket cut placed the neck opening squarely under the wind shadow of my helmet. Great gear, if a bit pricey, and if I were a heavier guy...over 220 say, I might find it snug.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Icon Pursuit Perforated Gloves Fits like a glove... Youve heard it a thousand times, so have we. What actually defines how a glove should fit We think the new standard is Icons Pursuit glove. Supple sheepskin leather conforms to your hand. Plastic knuckle armor for protection, but hidden for a refined look. All over perforation for all day comfort. Reinforced goatskin palm to combat those nasty encounters with the asphalt. Try it on for yourself and then decide. This is what a glove was meant to be. Pittards sheepskin chassis for great fit Goatskin leather palm overlay for durability Integrated knuckle armor for protection Secure wrist closure keeps the glove in place Expansion gussets to improve overall flexibility Snap to keep gloves together while not in use

I bought these gloves for summer riding in New England. I wanted something visually simple, well ventilated and without palm pads. I'm happy with these gloves and have worn them on some all day rides.
My fingers are long in proportion to my palm width, so I usually buy large gloves. The sizing chart indicated I should buy medium, which I did. As I feared, the fingers of the glove did not feel long enough, although the snugness through the palm and wrist was good. I soaked the fingers in water before leaving on a long trip and the leather stretched. Now they fit perfectly. Yay for leather!
Yes, I recommend this product.
