Icon Overlord Long Gloves Strong, light, and ready for duty - the Overlord glove is the finest glove Icon has ever offered. We 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. 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.

I've put just about 600 miles on my 1125CR with the M5's. Excellent dry grip and positive feed back in the twist's. I have ridden this down to 49F temps one morning commute. Warm-up was quick and painless and grip was immediate through the small back roads near my house. I have not ridden them in wet conditions yet, but I am pretty confident they'll hold up well. I read a few reviews here and other websites including a few magazines. My father always used Metzeler on his Harley's so I followed suit. I have nothing to compare to though, my stock Pirelli tires were getting close to going. The lean angle indicator is a nice touch! I'll report back in 2000 miles or so.

Deuce Pants by Scorpion Fully armed and full-cut, these ballistic nylon mesh overpants are as cool as they look. Waterproof liner adds warmth when you need it. Articulated EXO-TEC CE armor in the knees and hips combines protection with ease of movement, and wide legs can be worn outside boots. Big zippered pockets keep cargo safely stowed, and plenty of it.

I've been meaning to write a review for these pants and so after 500 miles it was time.
I normally wear a 37"-38" jeans or slacks with a 36" inseam. I chose the 2XL-T and they fit pretty close to may work slacks and at least one pair of my jeans. The velcro adjusters at the waist can synch things up a little tighter if needed.
These fit like pants. If you want to use them as an over-pant I would recommend one size up. These fit well otherwise and breath really well. The zippers on the legs are only one-way. So you can not open up the upper portion for more air flow. The knee and hip armor is small in size compared to others, but it is "A" CE rated so you should expect some limitations. The liner removes easily enough and there are even color coded tags to help you figure out which leg goes where.
The pockets are decent and mesh lined, the thigh area is meshed lined for excellent air flow at speed. There is a single rear belt loop, but there is not enough stitching there to make it useful. I suspect a few hard tugs and it'll separate from the pant. I have had a slight discoloration on the nylon in the inside knee area from riding. I am partially blaming this on the bike making some serious heat during some of the hottest days I rode in the MD/DC/NOVA area. Keeping the knees tucked into the frame at speed and cornering probably helped the discoloration along. I assume someone with Gripster tape or similar might not have this issue.
The knee area has a pretty nice design with some extra impact padding along with some stretch material. I have the knee armor at the lowest point I could get it in the pocket and they fit to the knee and part of the shin well in the riding position. The pockets could easily accommodate higher CE rated armor as well as the hip pockets.

I bought these pants looking for some good protection and durability. I got it. Just like the video, plenty of armor and padding in the all the key spots. These are mostly a 3 season pant and do tend to get quite warm sitting still for a bit in 85F+. There is little to no airflow, the thigh pockets are great and are mesh internal, but the air has no where to go. You'll find that there is a another thin layer inside the pants that could be cut away at key points to help with airflow. This layer undoubtedly though helps with water resistance. I found that zipping down the upper leg zipper 2-3" alleviates some heat. The internal liner is plenty thick and will hold up well in the cooler months ahead, easily removed for the mean time. There is no fly per se, so using the restroom, you nearly need to slide them half way down. Knee armor fits well for me in the lowest pocket while on my short 10 mile ride. Hip memory foam appeared to fit well, although only 10 mile ride not much to report there. They have a high backing for protection of your lower back and upper hips which will undoubtedly fit nicely with a jacket that has a 8":zipper.
The bad news is, I rode in them for 10 miles and realized pretty quickly that they are short for me. I am 6'4" and usually wear a 37-38"W with a 36" inseam. Finding pants are tough for me and using Fieldsheer's Size Chart on their website I thought I could make it with these. XL-T. They tend to be a little on the smaller side or I am just bigger than I think!? I now need to wait for Revzilla to restock or I need to look elsewhere for another brand. Unfortunately Revzilla won't take them back as they have "been ridden". Off to Craigslist they wait.

Love the feel and comfort of this jacket. Lots of features from the excellent elbow protection to the cooling effects. Plenty of armor or extra padding in the key spots. I have the black jacket and it does tend to get warm if you are sitting too long. Once you get some air flowing through, no worries then. Flows really well and the liner I pulled out immediately. Just too warm here in MD for it, yet.
I picked up the 2XL. I am 6'4" with a 36/37 arms and normally 17 1/2 to 18 inch neck. 48" chest. Arm length is slightly short by 1-2 mm for me, but my gloves cover the gap fine when I am in the normal riding position on my 1125CR.

Like mentioned in the Videos, its hard to beat the price point on this helmet with all the features it has. Good cooling, easy to work on replacing out or cleaning your visor. Weight is great and the comfort for my noggin is outstanding. Well made, quality shows in all aspects of it. The small magnet chin strap gizmo gets alot of complements. Very smart, obviously aimed at customers comfort and convenience. Only have 100 miles on it, about 20 hours worth or so. Now if we could just get some Dark Smoke visors or even Transition Face Shields in that would be great!
