just went for a 20 minute ride in 34° weather. bottom line, hands warm, fingers frozen. 2 hrs later it's 43° and i ride back. hands warm, fingers cold (but not frozen#. the wind does not seem to be fully blocked from the fingers. this was a good test, b/c i have no windscreen nor heated grips. i'm very thankful that these gloves do make it possible to take a short ride on a cold day. they are less bulky than other winter gloves and still look like m/c gloves. one suggested improvement for Alpinestars: the cuff is great, just make the outer part with the velcro strap separate #not connected to the cuff). that way, the cuff is inside your jacket, and the 'outer cuff' would be outside your jacket. this would improve fit and function.

this helmet looks really cool and is different than anything else. goes great with a naked bike. lots of style and works well. the interior pads are a little firm, but seem to be breaking in with use. kudos to Icon for including the dark visor. i use it all the time, even at night (normally ride where there are some streetlights/etc) b/c it reduces the glare from oncoming headlights. and it all comes at a good price.

i like these better than my icon field armor guards. they fit better and stay in place better. apparently no one has figured out that the top strap needs to be located to go around the bend of the knee--that's where the strap wants to go when you move around, so that's where it needs to be to keep them in place. they fit under loose jeans or over regular or slim jeans. and the Dainese logo is cool, of course.

short glove but with a little extra protection on the sides. fit great, good protection, lots of attention to detail, and seem to be well made. i normally get a medium, and the medium fits right. i can get them on with glove liners on too. they broke in after a long afternoon ride. the palms bunch up less than other gloves i've had when holding the grips, which helps with comfort and control. that may be where the extra $50 went, b/c these are pricier than similar gloves. i'm glad i spent the extra $$$.

Icon Overlord Type 1 Jacket Type 1 meets Type A. Aggressive, ambitious, and highly competitive. These are the the hallmarks of the Type A personality. Through years of research and development, we've extracted these traits from our Icon riders, such as Jason Britton, and imbued them into our textiles, armor, and patterns. The result is our new Type 1 Overlord jacket. It's lightweight yet rugged chassis, tailored attack fit, and multi-tiered defensive armor package expose it's true nature. Aggressive, ambitious, and highly competitive. In the urban sprawl, only the strongest survive - choose your gear accordingly. Icon attack fit Durable textile chassis Removable icon CE field armor impact protector elbow and shoulder Removable icon dual-density foam back pad Icon external injected plastic protection on shoulders, elbows and back Custom printed icon graphics Heavyweight ballistic impact panels Integrated fighter mesh panels for venting Gathered elastic flex panels on elbows and shoulders Removable insulated wind resistant liner Note 4XL size is only made in black color.

a lot of jacket for the money. looks great, lots of protection, well made, liner is warm especially for how thin it is. i got a small (normally a medium in clothes) b/c i am fit and wanted a close fit. sleeves are just long enough.

I was looking for the best ankle protection I could find with the least bulk for street riding. This boot exceeded any expectations I had in finding something. I was looking at short motocross boots for the protection, but these exceed those and anything else I found for ankle protection. And they easily go under jeans, b/c I was not trying to look like racer boy. Lots of attention to detail. The cost of these is a lot of money, but when you compare features and quality, these are up there with the most expensive boots. And Revzilla had them in stock, while other stores either didn't have them in stock or didn't carry Dainese at all. Knowing I could exchange these for free if the size wasn't right topped it all off. Revzilla rocks!
I rated style less than perfect, but that's personal opinion. I rated comfort less than perfect, but that's comparing to shoes//boots with much less protection. These are not meant for airflow, so it couldn't get a good score there. They do need to get broken in a bit for gear shifting to be easy (like any boot).
Yes, I recommend this product.
