Good glove down to about low 50s. Will work in the 40's but my hands will start to get cold after 10 minutes or so. fit is good, although, because it is a cold weather glove, it is bulky. the gloves go on and come off quickly and overall seem to be good.

This shield being pinlock ready is just awesome. If you haven't used a pinlock system before you simply are missing out. With the weather be cooler my shields have been fogging up crazy, but with the pinlock no more. I can breathe like recording the sound track to an adult movie and it will not fog up.

Fit my 2003 rc51 well. Has reinforcement in the back section so you can put it on with the bike still hot from a ride without worry about melting. The fabric feels a bit thin in other areas. My bike is in a car port so i can't attest to it's ability to repel water, but overall seems to be a good cover.

Wanted a good boot with better protection than your typical work boot. I was concerned about the width of the shoes. I wear a size 49 wide so i decided to buy the size 50 boot. Glad i did cause the boot fits great. Don't really feel them and they are relatively comfortable to walk around in as well.
I don't really feel any airflow but my feet don't get too hot either so take what you will from that.
A good buy in my book

Had a pair of icon pursuits and wanted something with more protection. The GPX gloves fit the bill, with external hard plastic, more padding, and much more substantial palm surface, i felt these would be better off if i have crash.
I don't feel airflow through the gloves, but my hands never get hot or sweaty so i guess it is flowing air.
The velcro strap is OK, but could be better. For my hand size apparently my wrist are small, so to get a snug fit i have to pull the strap tightly, but when i do this the velcro part is past where it can attach. So basically i wear the gloves a little loosely at the wrist which can cause the glove to shift at times.
But overall i am happy with the gloves.

Wanted some extra security for my bike because it is stored in my back patio. The unit seems durable and is also aesthetically pleasing. It is very easy to install onto the disc brake. Once armed it is not so sensitive that it will false alarm at the slightest bump, but it will go off if you rattle it or move the bike.
My only complaint is that the alarm could be a bit louder. it is loud enough to scare an "honest" person away from messing with your bike, but if you are inside your house and someone is messing with it you might not hear it unless you're really quiet.
But the lock itself seems good and should add a little security.

I ordered the hi-vis yellow model. This thing is bright. All around pretty comfortable with only a couple things that bother me. I have a relatively short neck and the collar, when strapped shut, is a little uncomfortable. Also the wrist velcro straps system they use is not that great, it works but is bulky.
Air flow is great and the armor is average as far as comfort goes. I really like the hi-viz and feel like it makes me more visible.

Icon Pursuit Perforated Gloves Fits like a glove... Youve heard it a thousand times, so have we. What actually defines how a glove should fit We think the new standard is Icons Pursuit glove. Supple sheepskin leather conforms to your hand. Plastic knuckle armor for protection, but hidden for a refined look. All over perforation for all day comfort. Reinforced goatskin palm to combat those nasty encounters with the asphalt. Try it on for yourself and then decide. This is what a glove was meant to be. Pittards sheepskin chassis for great fit Goatskin leather palm overlay for durability Integrated knuckle armor for protection Secure wrist closure keeps the glove in place Expansion gussets to improve overall flexibility Snap to keep gloves together while not in use

Wanted something basic and good looking. These fit the bill. They feel snug but much better after breaking in.
These are very basic gloves, and i feel as though it offers a minimum level of protection.

Wanted to have some armor protection no matter what pants i was wearing.
These turned out to be great. The fit is true to size and is very stretchable so there is lot's of flexibility. Lots of protection that can be bulky so if you wear these under jeans make sure your jeans are baggy and a little loose in the waist.
All the armor pieces are removable so you can take some out if you feel they are uncomfortable or unnecessary.

Wanted to have some riding jeans and decided on the drayko due to to it being ce rated. The jeans are a nice color and finish. It fits larger, almost 1 size larger than i normally wear, however i'm using armor padded tights underneath so this was perfect. The jeans are baggy so if you want something more fitted this might not be for you.
The kevlar lining is soft and comfy, but the jeans do get a little stuffy.
I recommend it, seems to be a good pant and hopefully it'll protect when needed.
