If you have been a long time Vertigo owner like me (2-3 pairs) you'll just want to go buy these now.
They finally got around to something a step ahead, the redesigned air flow vent is much improved. They did drop the heal cup guards with non-replaceable but the rest is a step up. The new locking ratchet system is much easier to use. Although it does take a bit of practice to find the release clips with gloved hands.
Still, the boot itself feels much like the Vertigo, you just get more improvements that were needed elsewhere. Its still a great boot for the day-to-day ride and track days. It does still feel a tad narrow for some folks and like the Vertigo, I'm kinda between a 46-47 size so I usually go 46.

These are my first A*'s pants, my third overall leathers. Previously I have used ICON Overlord Prime and AGV.
I should have just come here first. Just like you I'm torn on which ones to fit. I paired these pants with the Celar jacket and they match really well. So well that you can hardly tell I'm wearing a pseudo-two piece.
At any rate, the removable mesh liner is what sold me along with as previously posted by others, you can adjust the waist a bit if needed. I wear a 56T and they fit perfect for my 6'4" frame. I do have just a bit of tummy at roughly 37-38 waist depending on cut. They do ride just slightly low, but with the Celer or just about any A*'s jacket you should be fine.
Airflow is good and the adjustable calf zipper is a nice touch if you need the space. Its likely the best paints they have made to date. See attached.

I grew up using Bell Helmets in the mid to late 80's, early 90's so I've always had a penchant for them.
I have had 3 Bell helmets in the last 4+ years all from Revzilla.
Bell Vortex, Bell RS-1 and now the Star, Pinned no less.
Like any of the previous models, the fit and finish is excellent as alluded to in the videos. The quick release mechanism for the shield is a pinch to work with along with replacement.
The Star is just a step above the rest. Its a hefty price point if you are just getting into riding, but its sooo worth it. The Carbon/Kevlar blend on the Pinned is a sight to behold. And the weight of a mere 3 lbs is excellent. Still, Bell has some work to do on wind noise. Its prevalent on both the Star and the RS-1. Ear plugs can fix that in a snap. The Star works very well in the tuck at speed and it is forgiving somewhat if you need to take a peek around your shoulder or down through your armpit.

CRG RC2 Brake Lever for Kawasaki / Triumph / Yamaha / Suzuki / Buell The RC2 is a brand new version of the on-the-fly position adjustable lever, designed for OEM style master cylinders. A worthy successor to the highly successful, race-proven Roll-a-Click lever, the RC2 offers a higher level of refinement and design through details that include a replaceable black delrin lever tip, extensive use of the newest CNC machine surfacing techniques, custom hardware, and precision laser etched graphics. A redesigned miniature clicker lever controls a roller cam assembly, giving riders the ability to manipulate lever position while riding. Brake fade and clutch adjustments can be tuned in with ease. Levers can be adjusted for small or large hand sizes. The RC2 levers are available in Standard and Shorty (1-1/4 shorter that the Standard) lengths and in 3 anodized colors - Black, Red and Gold. Features 6061-T6 aluminum CNC machined billet construction Six on-the-fly adjustable positions Standard or shorty lever lengths Scuff resistant, black delrin replaceable tip Integrated black plated CNC machined torx hardware Laser etched graphics Note Image shows relative size difference between Standard and Shorty

I bought my second pair of levers a few weeks back for a newer bike in the stable. I'm not sure where I got hooked on CRG levers originally but I won't buy another brand.
The fit, finish and easy of use on the roll-a-click is top notch. The break away point on the tips is an added bonus as well. Now we just need CRG to make brake/clutch guards and some more Carbon Fiber tidbits.
For day-to-day and occasional track use, you can't go wrong with CRG. The price point is a bit high but worth it IMHO. I dumped a previous bike and the CRG's held up nicely. See attached.

 Icon Overlord Long Gloves
Icon Overlord Long Gloves
Icon Overlord Long Gloves Strong, light, and ready for duty - the Overlord glove is the finest glove Icon has ever offered. They started with a Kangaroo palm - thin for ultimate feedback form your controls yet more abrasion resistant than cowhide. Critical impact areas were treated to reinforcements of Pittard's Keratan - a flexible yet significantly enhanced abrasion resistant goatskin. The backhand is constructed from Icon's Battlehide goatskin - forming a tough yet lightweight barrier against asphalt incursion. A full compliment of injection molded armor plating provides additional defensive measures. The Overlord also features a floating knuckle design which allows for maximum articulation while reducing hand fatigue. The overall effect of these materials choices and pattern engineering is instant comfort, protection, and mobility. If you're in the market for a full gauntlet glove slip on an Overlord and judge for yourself. Features Abrasion resistant premium grade Battlehide goatskin backhand Kangaroo palm Pittards Keratan abrasion zones Injected thermoplastic knuckle and wrist protection Injection molded wrist plate Precurved fingers Aramid stitching

I bought these to go with my Overlord Prime HERO jacket and the Overlord Prime pants. I figured I might as well complete the set. the gloves have about 1200 miles on them so its high time for a review.
The protection and fit is excellent. Air flow is optimal for 3 season riding. I do not think you are going to want to ride these into the 40's. The webbing portion flows air really well and that is not going to work so well in the cold. I chose the MED size as my hand size was just barely into Large. They will take a few hundred miles to fit and work in.
Kangaroo skin is excellent providing tactile feedback but the abuse of using them will cause them to discolor over time. See pics above from other users. My wedding ring is rubbing through the material. See pics. It has not opened up a hole yet but its only a matter of time. Otherwise take care, the skin will likely last a long time. After using Kangaroo skin you'll probably want it on all your gear. Stuff is fantastic. There has been no separation of material at the seems yet so thats a plus.
As mentioned by others, the Velcro strap at the gauntlet is going to grab everything. The right glove has really taken a beating in this category. Nylon lining/webbing has separated is starting to fray. Somewhere around the 500 mile mark the gloves separated as pictured. Velcro is still able to work as intended. The left glove is fine. Nothing to extravagant. See pics.
I have placed the jacket cuffs successfully under them with the HERO jacket. Its a bit to work in but can be done. Otherwise you should ride these underneath. I can only assume that they will fit on the outside perfect with the appropriate Track Suit.

 Icon Overlord Prime Leather Pants
Icon Overlord Prime Leather Pants
Icon Overlord Prime Leather Pants Icon built the Overlord leather pant for the street. They are not a race derivative track pant poorly re-purposed for the urban environment. They are street specific and here's why. Crafted from the same 1.2-1.4 mm leather as our Overlord jacket, the Overlord leather pant is more than durable enough for the most brutal of street duty. The street specific pattern accommodates the aggressive ergonomics of modern sportbikes while greatly reducing the all too common butt sag when standing. Mechanical flex zones and integrated stretch cordura panels enhance on-bike mobility. Over the boot leg patterns eliminate the racetrack refugee look by allowing your boots to fit under the pant.The integrated plastic knee armor provides enhanced joint abrasion protection should you decide to put these pants to the ultimate test. A three quarter length zipper allows the pant to be connected to any of the Overlord leather jackets.To nip your question in the bud - no, there is no knee puck. We built these pants for the street not track, and dragging knee on the street, as we were recently informed by an irate law officer, is frowned upon. ICON attack fit 1.2-1.4MM Premium grade leather chassis Removable CE knee impact protectors Integrated hip/thigh padding Gathered stretch panels for comfort and flexibility Breathable panels for venting Strategically placed perforated leather for ventilation Premium YKK zippers Please Note Icon logos on knees are white, not black as shown in the product photos and video.

I have nearly a 1,000 miles on this pants so its well past time for a review.
Pros: Excellent leather protection in key areas. Padding in knee and hip spot on. Plenty of air flow! You'll want the liner on in the morning 35-45F. High hip backing gives a feeling of more protection in commonly missed area from other brands. Easy zip up and 2 snaps and you are nearly ready to ride. 360 zip for jacket attachment (highly recommend attaching the matching jacket). They feel worn-in already.
Cons: No pockets. They do fit a little large like jeans. The bottom portion opening at the ankles is fairly large. You can stuff into boots (Sidi Vertigo) or leave on the outside. Some rubbing wear on the inside portion of the knees but this is expected if riding aggressive with your knees clamped to the tank. Inner portion of calf area where the aramid and kevlar material seems to grab any sharp points on the bike.
ICON has created a winner in these pants for the Street Rider who wants a little more. These are my first leather pants and the comfort, protection and styling goes a long way. I am usually a 36-38" waist depending on cut and 35-36" inseam so finding the right combination can be difficult. I chose the 38's for my frame. Which turned out to be a little bigger than I thought. I plan on using these for a long time to come and hope that ICON continues to build on these pants as well as the jacket.

I have about 500 or so miles in these boots which are my first dedicated motorcycle boots. Protection is on par with Sidi's standard which are some of the best in the Industry. They have hardly worn looks, but they are broken in very well and comfortable in the riding position. The price point is about average I would say at this level but I am yearning for the next level. I suspect that a rider will get plenty of years and mileage out of them. I can't really say if they are track capable but in my little experience I am not expecting them too. See below.
Pros:
Finish is excellent. Well made and durable.  Adds confidence to your abilities.
Protection is on par at this level. Toe sliders are easy to remove and change out. 
Heel cup just as easy.
Stylish. Sidi always has a keen eye for this.
Heel and sole are durable and flex just enough for positive feedback on the pegs in the twists.  Easy to slip in and out of.
Cons:
The size is about 1/2" large or thereabouts. I would try them on before you buy. I wear thick knee high snow socks to compensate. I'm a regular 12 and they seem loose.
Ankle area feels a tad loose and may be size related per above but not noticeable on the pegs.  No arch support.  No big deal.
They do not feel tight in the calf area as mentioned by others. The zipper covers about 2/3 and then a Velcro flap. You'll never get it tight enough unless you are tucking pant legs and that will only last for so long.
They are not waterproof!
The bottom line for me is they will do duty just fine for out and about. I am going up to a Vertigo or ST for tracking my Buell and I will stay with Sidi. Just likely to pick one size smaller and with a little more race inspired enhancements.

I needed a back protector for my XL BUELL Jacket and it was a little tricky finding one for the size I need. The jacket's pocket is pretty small and I almost didn't think it was going to fit. I eventually had to look at Women's sizing for the dimensions I needed.
After making a few careful measurements I ordered up this one based on the technology used in the product and the dimensions I needed.
At any rate, its a nicely crafted piece of protection and the only issue I have is I wish my pocket was bigger to accommodate a larger size for piece of mind.

I've ridden about 500 miles in these gloves so its about time I wrote up something. With Fall/Winter approaching I opted for a leather glove with a decent gauntlet in the $50 price point.
Great finish and fit. Decent gauntlet length and dual Velcro straps that go in opposite directions to ensure proper fit. The extra padding is decent on the backside and on top of the fingers and does allow good movement as Anthony mentions. The reflective piping has worked out well with my Joe Rocket RASP Jacket and also like Anthony mentions you can easily wear them over or under your jacket. See pictures.
I wore them on a 49F commute to work one morning and with no insulation per se you are not going to get much warmth out of them. The thumb areas joining the palm are excellent to stave off wear with working the areas of the clutch and front brake. They provide good tactile feedback on the controls and once they are worn in you'll probably not notice you are wearing gloves anymore. Which is a plus in any riders book.
I wouldn't recommend them for the track. There is not enough protection here for what the track environment calls for at this price point. I surmise though they could hold up in a decent spill.
