Easy on / easy off. Soft leather - great grip(s). These went on a tad tight out of the box but adjusted to my hand in no time.

Easy to use. Easy to "see." Locking mechanism works solidly. The hi-viz yellow can be seen from a good distance.

Got the tobacco color to go with my tobacco RS jacket. I waer XL -ordered XL and they fit a tad snug but stretched to fit after a few rides. Can zip - unzip with gloved hand. Once on, they fit under jacket sleeve nicely. As maneuverable as my deerskins. I recommend.

I received my boots on a Friday afternoon. I'm a contractor by trade and I do bids on Saturdays, (in my truck). I decided to wear the boots while doing bids to sorta break them in and see if blisters or other trouble spots developed while wearing them walking and driving. Half way through the morning I'd forgotten I had them on! These things felt as comfortable as my tennis shoes! I have 3 other pairs of boots in the closet (about $600 worth) and I'll probably never step into them again. I've ridden about 4 times since I've had them and they're absolutely great while riding -- protection north and south, real easy on and off and the bottoms are STICKY! If I'm going to ride sometime during the day, I just put these on first thing in the morning and wear them all day; can't do that with any other of my boots.

Bought this high viz helmet because it seems to me that about 90% of the automobile drivers around here are texting, talking, eating or otherwise detached from the moment - especially in-town riding. My other modular helmet is a (black) Schuberth C3... and this Bell Revolver compares favorably in fit and function. My talented daughter 'sharpied' a picture of Yosemite Sam on the back of the helmet. It adds a little character but doesn't detract from the helmet's capacity to trigger the eyes. My other helmets are size large. I ordered this Bell in large and it fit perfectly.
