I purchased this pair of socks and a more expensive pair before going on a several day tour. I like these socks, they are comfortable and have good wicking and air flow. I do not think they will last as long as the other, more expensive pair but I will enjoy them while they last.

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!

Excited over socks? Yep, that's what I would ask as well. These socks are top notch. I was reluctant to pay this much, but they are well worth it. I wear them with a full height, leather Sidi boot and they are perfect. I expect these socks will last quite some time and I will be adding another pair or two to my collection.

Icon Patrol Waterproof Gloves Eighty percent of the controls on a motorcycle are operated with your hands. The Patrol waterproof gloves were designed to keep you in control when the weather turns foul. The fully insulated and waterproof design provides maximum comfort and protection. The chassis is not only waterproof but features a mild precurve design to reduce hand fatigue. The palm is constructed of Battlehide goatskin for optimum feedback yet maintaining durability. Reinforced rubber knuckle armor covers the backhand along with a reflective graphics package. Finally, an integrated goggle wipe built into the thumb helps keep your shield clear. Waterproof textile chassis Abrasion resistant premium grade Battlehide goatskin palm Reinforced rubber knuckle armor Reflective graphics Goggle wipe on thumb Precurved palm and finger design

I bought these gloves because: 1) I am happy with my Icon summer gloves and I am familiar with Icon sizing, 2) They were priced well, and 3) These gloves had good waterproof reviews on various places on the internet.
The sizing/fit worked out well, I am 6'3 220#, I wear an XL jacket and pants, and I am an XXL in icon gloves. The features and finish are as good or better than expected. I'm happy so far with the warmth. My hands are plenty warm down to 40 with heated grips on medium. I haven't had a chance to try them in the rain yet, but all reviews I have read have been positive about the waterproofness of these gloves.

Love the options you get with the modular helmet. Read all the reviews that said the integrated sun shield was not great, they were pretty much right, but it works and it's there and it's convenient. Fit is good and I find the helmet to be comfortable. Airflow could be a tad better. Fit and finish is not up to the level of the higher end helmets. Overall, this is a great helmet for the money for me. I would buy it again.

I looked long and hard before purchasing this jacket. So far, I'm quite happy with my decision. I've been on several rides in the 90s with high humidity and been very comfortable. The jacket has plenty of airflow. I like the fit, I like the finish and quality. I have not used the inner rain shell yet, so no feedback there yet.

I stopped by a few shops before ordering these gloves. I liked them best out of the sub $50 dollar gloves.
