Dainese Razon Perforated Leather Jacket The road flashing beneath your bike, the wide open spaces of the prairie, the pulsing of the pistons you can feel in your arms and everywhere else as sunlight glints off the engine chrome, and choppers riding in formation roar down the road. Constructed in leather that is both thick and soft at the same time, the Razon jacket combines innovative technical solutions like patented Microelastic inserts with the essential style and unique character of the riders who wear it. Equipped with removable composite protectors, ventilation, and removable thermal lining, this jacket is also available in a Women's version. Protection Composite protectors certified to Standard EN1621.1/97 Ergonomics and Comfort Microelastic elasticated inserts Inserts in elasticated fabric Neck adjustment Waist adjustment Jacket-trousers fastening system Air inlets on the chest Localized perforation Removable thermal liner Sanitized lining Other Pocket for G1 and G2 back protector Pocket on removable liner 2 outside pockets Internal pocket

Everything about this jacket is good—not great but good. I especially like the liner that can be removed, allowing you to stay warm when it's moderately cold outside and stay cool all throughout the blistering-hot summer. However, the jacket does get a little big once the liner is removed. Sometimes, I think it would be best to go one size smaller for this perforated version (because you'll want it during the summer and have no use for the liner), and then buy a second, non-perforated Dainese Razon for the winter at my regular size, but that's probably a lot more money than most people want to spend on riding jackets. Otherwise, everything on the jacket is good. The style is nice but the materials are definitely not as good as they can be; I noticed fraying around all the seams within a week or so of riding with it.

Shoei GT-Air Wanderer Helmet SHOEI introduces the GT-Air, a lightweight full-face helmet with improved ventilation, a fully removable noise-reducing interior, a built-in sun visor and a distinctively stylish shell that is as good looking as it is integral to its performance while on the road. Aerodynamic Shell Design Aerodynamic properties are maximized through extensive wind tunnel and professional riders feedback Multi-Piece EPS liner enhances impact absorption and ventilation Three shell and four EPS liner sizes provide increased fit options that help to comfortably fit most head sizes Molded air spoiler reduces drag and lift, as well as diminishes pressure on the riders neck while riding at speed Sun Shield Visor System Built-in QSV-1 sun shield gives riders instant relief from sun glare in one quick motion Visor meets ANSI Z80.3-2010 standard for non-prescription eyeglasses Large and easy to reach switch activates the 3D injection-molded inner sun shield Distortion-free shield blocks 99 of harmful UV rays Forehead area of the outer shell is raised slightly to accommodate the internal sun shield, helping allow for the integrity of the helmets inner EPS liner to remain intact Ventilation System Upper Air Intake Vent is positioned to maximize air volume into the helmet interior Large upper intake vent positioned to maximize performance behind wind screens Easy to operate large lower intake vent Lower air intake/defroster vent reduces shield fogging and increases ventilation The rear/neck vents allow for effective air exhaust Breath guard and chin curtain included Advanced Integrated Matrix (AIM) High performance fiber materials are combined with elastic organic fibers to create a shell structure that is ultra-lightweight, rigid and resilient Interior System 3-D Max-Dry center pad and multi-layered, polyurethane foam cheek pads Chin curtain prevents wind entry and reduces noise Cheek pads are replaceable or removable for maintenance Eyeglass compatible interior E.Q.R.S. (Emergency Quick-Release System) allows emergency medical personnel to easily remove the cheek pads from the helmet of a rider involved in an accident, in turn making the helmet more easily removable Standard Chin-Strap Clip Neatly secures chin strap CNS-1 Shield System The CNS-1, three-dimensionally curved shield is both wider and taller than the CX-1V it replaces Includes new redesigned Pinlock Anti-Fog Lens for more coverage of the CNS-1 shield Dual-Ridge window bead increases contact with the shield to reduce wind noise Scratch-resistant shield coating 99.9 protection from harmful UV AB rays Safety Certification DOT-218 Note Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States

Looks good, quiet, but doesn't vent well

This helmet looks great and is very quiet; however, I find the air flow to be a lot less than in my Shoei RF-1100, which I was surprised by. This is supposed to be a touring helmet, and so I'd expect it to have excellent venting capability. Furthermore, I'm one of those people who reads the entire user's manual for every product I buy; so I don't think it's anything I'm doing incorrectly as far as opening/closing the vents properly, etc.
