Not the most protective boot out there, but the trade-off is, as the write-up says: all day comfort riding OR walking. Bought the boot shortly before embarking on a 3800 mile trip and never regretted it. I had the "opportunity" to test the waterproof feature less than 2 hours out on day 1, riding in and out of a downpour for over an hour, and it passed. I ordered my normal size and it fits perfectly (something I've struggled with in the Euro brands - can never seem to hit the target on first try). Very good value for the money.

Just finished a long tour that fortunately offered mostly great weather - but on the first day out I encountered heavy rains for the better part of an hour, and stayed dry. I was also especially glad to have it during one stretch through heavy fog - much more visible in those conditions with this jacket than I would have otherwise been. Fit was great, and it packs up light and small, which made it even better. Would have liked a bit more breathability, especially on the last leg when temps were climbing and showers - some heavy, but intermittent - occurred through most of the day: it got too warm to leave the jacket on the whole ride, and so the final 200 miles was continuous routine of stopping to put it on, and stopping again 30-40 minutes later to take it off. But, for the protection and packability offered at the price, I can't really complain.

Olympia Airglide 4 Over Pants Quite possibly one of the most versatile and rider friendly pants on the market, the Olympia Airglide 4 Pants are the latest design iteration of a pant that has been a staple of multi-season riding for years. With a tough 500 denier Cordura and Ballistic Airflow mesh, the Airglide 4 Pants can be worn by themselves or over your regular pants depending on your application. The removable waterproof rain liner can also be worn zipped into the interior, over top or by itself to allow complete versatility of a pant that already sets a high bar for utilitarianism. Full leg zips on both layers allow for easy on and off with or without boots on and the adjustable CE rated knee armor ensures you are properly protected. Features: Outer shell constructed in 500 denier Cordura fabric with Ballistic Airflow mesh panels Waterproof over or under rain pant Full side leg zippers extend to waistband Removable and adjustable height CE Motion Flex armor at knees Cool mesh airflow lining Removable EVA compression foam at hips Custom Fit detailing at waist, hips and bottom hem 3M Scotchlite reflective piping from waist to hem Relaxed tailored fit Four storage pockets 8 connecting zipper for jackets

All in all, a good, comfortable pant. Air flow is good, not great - but that actually means it can be used on cool-ish mornings without the liner, so you don't have to hassle with that as the day heats up. Fit is also good, not great: went with the recommendation to order the size you wear in jeans - 34 - and it fits well, except for the length when sitting: I ride an FJR and the pants ride up above the top of my boot, hence the "slightly small" rating (note - when riding in jeans I usually go with a 34x34 to avoid that - these are more like 34x32.5?). Fortunately not so with the rain liner - used them as an overpant when I got caught in a storm a few days ago and stayed dry.

Nice looking jacket; seems to flow air well enough (though I bought it late in season and haven't ridden on an extremely hot day); features are what is needed - hard to beat for the price. Definitely recommended.

This is my first jacket, so hard to compare to others, but I did go through trying on several before settling on this -- and I am very satisfied with the choice for what it is: a low-cost, lightweight, warm weather jacket. Enough airflow to be comfortable on warm and humid South Texas mornings with a t-shirt underneath. The large fits me well through the chest, shoulders, and sleeves (6'1", 190 lbs); wish I could cinch the waist a bit tighter: only so much you can do with the velcro straps (and they do seem a bit flimsy). Armor seems less substantial than some others I tried, but it sits where it should and is almost unnoticeable. To me, the style is a nice compromise between cruiser and sport.
Yes, I recommend this product.
