Experienced riders know that, for a good tour, the right clothing is just as crucial as technical skill. Dry, comfortable feet help you perform better. The Air conditioning Channel of the REVIT! SUMMER TOURING socks is climate control for your feet, actively and continuously regulating excess heat and moisture. This provides effective protection against moisture and temperature extremes, for both hot and cold environments. 29 MICROFIBER, 22 POLYAMIDE, 19 MERINO WOOL, 12 ROBUR, 11 MYTLAN, 5 ACRYLIC, 2 ELASTANE
I bought 2 pr of these socks in late 2010 as I was preparing for a 9,500 mile cross-country solo trip. I also bought the REVIT Touring boots at the same time. I have probably logged over 2,000 hours between the 2 pair and find them very comfortable and durable. The elastic in the top band does tend to fade after a couple of days of continuous wear but washing restores to new condition. I really do wear them and the boots even when I'm not riding. They are that comfortable. In fact, I have them on right now!

I prefer a full-face but I bought this helmet just before my 8,500 mile trek across the US last summer because I wanted the versatility. I also bought the Sharktooth Bluetooth.
The helmet seems to fit comfortably at first. A bit snug but that's what you want. The problem is that after about 30 minutes, I got a horrible headache. I mean like a true migraine. Took me awhile to figure out that it was the helmet and a bit longer to realize that it was the forehead pad causing it. The pad is a black mesh and feels fairly cushy. But just behind the mesh is a 4" x 2" neoprene pad that is glued on to the styrofoam. It's about 1/8" thick and puts just enough pressure on the forehead to cause great agony.
I have recently pulled the neoprene pad out (see pic) and plan to try the helmet again tomorrow on a 5 hour trip to Princeton. This may or may not fix the problem. I see others have had the same experience with the headaches. I'll bring my full face just in case.
Overall, I expect a much, much better product for the $$ I paid. I would not recommend this product unless you can actually wear it for an hour or so before you buy it.
