I bought this jacket as I was looking for a light weight summer solution. New England summers are hot and muggy and my normal three season jacket was just too hot.
This jacket is really light weight. With the liner removed, this almost feels like a baggy long sleeve shirt. The mesh breathes incredibly well! The very first time using it I was really impressed with the amount of air this jacket lets in.
The liner is like a knit sweat shirt. Don't expect it to keep out much wind or water, but when the temps drop a bit its nice to have.
The fit and finish on the jacket is OK. Feels like it will last awhile.
For the price, if you are looking for a highly breathable summer jacket, this one wont disappoint.

So far, I am very happy with this helmet. After looking at several models, I settled on the GT-Air because of the aerodynamics and the internal sun shield, even though the presence of the internal shield means the helmet will not have a SNELL ratting.
So far, the fit and finish of this helmet has been really nice. The visor works really well and is crystal clear. Air flow on the helmet is amazing. With the vents full open, you can feel the air rushing through the helmet. With my old helmet I had awful wind buffeting issues on the highway. The GT-Air cuts right through the wind on the highway making for a very smooth ride.
I do have a rather large head. I bought the XL which on the Shoei size charts puts me slightly larger than what I measured. The fit was still pretty tight. While the smaller opening at the bottom of the helmet cuts down on wind noise, it does make it a little harder to get the helmet on and off. The preformed ear cups for speaker placement is a bit limiting, and the cups aren't quite big enough for my ears. The cheek pads in this helmet also run very large. The helmet comes with a medium sized cheek pad, and it will cost you $50 more to get the larger or smaller size.
Overall, I am enjoying the helmet and would recommend it!

This glove is great for cold weather riding. I have had it out on highway trips in the 30 degree range and my hands have stayed very warm. You really don't feel the wind at all through them. My hands usually are very warm in gloves so I was concerned about them being clamy in such heavily insulated gloves, but they breathe very well and kept my hands dry. I haven't gotten a chance to use them in the rain yet, but based on how they have performed so far, I don't think I will be dissapointed.
They aren't the cheapest gloves out there, but so far they have proven to be worth the extra cost.

I was looking for a pair of gloves that was going to be light weight for summer use, but still provided good protection and wouldn't break the bank. The Cortech Accelerator 2 met all my criteria. Very nice fit and padding. Plenty of protection.
The fit is good on my rather large hands, though the thumbs and pinky fingers of the glove are a bit too long.
