Quality seems to be pretty good. Not too shabby, but probably not top of the line either. Might be a little expensive though. I use this to commute to work and I can fit a 15" labtop, shoes, a change of clothes and my lunch (smashed in there). Not huge, put a perfect side for what I was looking for. The padded straps are nice and the zippers are very smooth. I have not yet used the hydration pack yet. There are quite a few small pockets all over the pack for small items as well.

These gloves are very well constructed. They flow a fair amount of air, so they are good for summer, not sure how they will be during colder weather rides. I got a large and they fit very well but the pinky finger is just a bit long. Other than that, they are great

I bought these for use with a sport bike as I didnt need toe sliders since im not much of a racer. The nonslip sole is great and are very well made. The venting is really nice when riding and my foot rarely gets hot. I wear a 10-10.5 shoe and got the size 44. They are slighly big with a regular sock on but fit great with a thicker wool sock and I think the thicker sock will be necessary when the weather gets cooler.

These boots just werent for me. I thought the waterproof boots would be the way to go but these are SO hot even just wearing around the house that i returned them. They didnt fit my feet very well and seriously look like moon boots. Not a fan. I ended up exchanging them for some SIDI Clever Air boots and they are fantastic.

Jacket is made of VERY thick leather and the armor stays in place nicely. With the liner out, the venting is pretty good, but with any leather jacket, when you are stopped, it gets HOT in the summer. I am 5'10" 170 lbs and the medium fits me well. Its maybe a tad tight across the chest when off the bike fully zipped, but when riding (which is the most important of course) it fits like a glove. Also its a great looking jacket. I got the impoved chest protectors and can hardly feel them, so those are highly recommended.

This is a great helmet. The venting is great and I dont get much fogging with the face shield switch that opens the bottom slightly. My only complaint is that the cheekpads that came with it were too tight on my face. I bought the 31 mm pads and the helmet fits great. It would be nice to be able to choose the pads that come with the helmet instead of having to buy other ones.
