I ware this jack everyday... around town, on the slopes and for my commute to work. Plenty of great pockets in and out.
My commute involves a half-hour snowmobile ride up Mt. Mansfield, Highest peak in VT. On days like today with temps of -20°F winds gusting 50Mph that makes for -60°F wind-chill. This jacket keeps me nice and cozy. Nothing fancy on underneath just a button up cotton shirt and light weight poly fleece.
Recently I rolled a sled going some where in the order of 15-20Mph, I slid for 10-15 Ft... this jacket still looks new!

Recently I roiled a sled going some where in the order of 15-20Mph, I slid for 10-15 Ft... these bibs still look brand new!
The integrated gators are great when trudging through 40" of powder off the side of the trail! No snow in my boots. Full length zips on the legs means I can get in/out of the bibs with-out taking off my boots.
Part of my commute involves a half-hour snowmobile ride up Mt. Mansfield, Highest peak in VT. On days like today with temps of -20°F winds gusting 50Mph that makes for -60°F. I am nice and warm in these bibs. Nothing fancy on underneath just my double-chap Carhartts.
I use them while skiing as well, I push my limits and fall a lot... so far so good.

Part of my commute involves a half-hour snowmobile ride up Mt. Mansfield, Highest peak in VT. On days like today with temps of -20°F winds gusting 50Mph that makes for -60°F Wind-chill, this glove comes in handy. On days like today you will still feel the cold but it's bearable. These Gloves excel at 0°F and up.
When I have to expose my hands to the elements where they get wet/cold all it takes is five minutes after putting them back in these gloves to have them warm and dry again, gore-tex works!
I use them while skiing as well, they are great when shoveling snow too! I use them when I wash down the car to get off the salt with a rag and hose, hands stay warm and dry.

Sidi Adventure GTX Boots Based on the outstanding success of the Sidi Adventure Rain Boots , it has been decided that the full Gore-Tex version of the boot will be imported from Italy. Previously this boot was only available in Europe. This ultimate adventure boot combines the best of both worlds (offroad and touring) into a boot that is extremely protective as well as comfortable both on and off the bike. With the Gore-Tex membrane these boots are 100 waterproof as well being highly breathable. These boots come with the Gore-Tex Guaranteed to Keep You Dry promise. Soft rubber sole for maximum grip. Replaceable strap system. Top grain leather construction. Composite inner sole. Removable arch support. Exclusive cam-lock buckle system. Cambrelle lining. Slim, cool non-bootie design. Rigid, shock resistant, anatomically shaped heel for maximum protection. Split grain leather inner anti-wear/heat panel. Single Flex System upper.

Put you feet in these boots, They rock!
Eight hours out in a cool mid November rainy day with the guys and my feet were comfortable and dry all day. No hesitation to trudge through water-crossings.
Kicked up a rogue foot long 2x4 on a dirt road, toes stung like H-E-double-hockey-stick for an hour or so but they didn't break, I credit these boots to saving my stride!

Bell Revolver EVO HiViz Helmet Bell locked their RD team in the laboratory and didnt let them out until they had taken the Revolver helmet and turned it into a truly class leading modular worthy of the Bell name. When the engineering team finally emerged, the result was the Revolver EVO. With improved features like a redesigned eyeport seal to reduce wind noise, new chin curtain to keep cold air out, and an improved flip down sun shade, the Revolver EVO has truly taken Bell modular helmets to the next level in rider comfort and performance. Features Internal Sun Shade offers on the fly protection from the sun without having to stop and change face shields Velocity Flow ventilation system with FlowAdjust for maximum ventilation and temperature control Lightweight composite polycarbonate alloy shell Super stable aerodynamic signature resists buffeting and lift Integrated speaker pockets for audio speakers Contour Cut Cheekpads for superior fit and comfort ClickRelease for the fastest, easiest, tool-free shield swaps ever NutraFog II superior anti-fog, anti-scratch and UV protected shield New redesigned eyeport seal dramatically reduces wind noise Removable and washable interior for maximum comfort Exclusive Magnefusion magnetic strap keeper New chin curtain prevents cold air from entering the helmet High visibility yellow Padded chin strap with D-ring closure Comes with clear faceshield only Five-year warranty Note Though a breath deflector is shown in the product images, it is not included or compatible with the Revolver EVO.

I've spent about 120 hours in the new Evo,Hi-Viz, I feel the Hi-Viz gets me noticed for all the right reasons. In that time I have been in 85°F+ heat, but nothing below 50°F, and have remained comfortable with the airflow.
An issue with airflow is road crud has a knack for being funneled up into the helmet from the neck hole. The crud ends up in my eyes.
I am able to go two hours in the rain before the visor begins to fog, I end up having to part the visor to clear the lens, I am hesitant to use any anti-fog as the sticker warns no to, could upset the factory coating.
With all vents closed and the visor shut I still get a large amount of H2O finding it's way in and on my face, it is large "drops" so I think it collects and then reaches critical mass to let go.
The lens has scratched very easily, my previous Bell that I had for two years has minimal damage compared.
I love the built in sun visor, and the ability to flip up when stopped, as opposed to taking off the whole helmet. The mechanism for this has taken a little bit to "break-in". I still have issues getting it closed and I am forced to use both hands, and confirm secure seal before I ride. I did not have any of these problems with other modular helmets of different brands.
My chin easily rubs on the material in place to reduce hostile airflow that rides up through the neck hole, this is an daily annoyance but can be lived with if you rock a biker stash. I have wondered how my chin would hold up if I took a digger and that section of the helmet took the most abuse, their is not a lot a protective material between your chin and the world.
All in all it works for the price and I feel safe in Bells hands. If I were to do it all again I would keep saving my pennies for the next price bracket of modular helmets
