nothing insanely special about it, just comfortable back armor that fits the jackets it's made for at an acceptable price.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I've gone too many winters without anything better than summer gloves. these gloves feel sturdy and warm, and it was pretty easy to adjust them in a secure fashion which still allows me to slip them on and off without playing with straps. the liner can be a little complex, but nothing particularly troubling.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Sidi Canyon Gore-Tex Boots Features Top grain leather construction Contrasting texture upper Equipped with a GORE-TEX waterproof-breathable membrane Velcro closure system above the ankle Micro adjustable strap system below the ankle Full length inner gaiter Rigid nylon innersole Removable arch support Internal heel protection Internal ankle protection Internal toe protection Leather toe shift-brake pad Nylon plate and internally padded shin plate Double stitched in all high stress areas Reflective panels Bonded non-slip lug type sole Non-Bootie Designs Sidi boots do not incorporate inner booties into their design, and for good reason. Booties make the design larger and cumbersome add to the boots thickness, which interferes with shifting, plus the inner booties retain body heat affecting the riders performance and comfort. Gore-Tex Striving for peak performance Whether its a day on a wet track, a long distance tour through all types of conditions, or simply pursuing your everyday adventures, Sidi GORE-TEX lined boots will help you get there. Designed to provide comfort and protection, Sidi GORE-TEX boots keep your feet dry, even when you encounter snow, or rain. Each Sidi GORE-TEX boot is totally waterproof to keep moisture from penetrating inside, yet incredibly breathable to allow sweat to escape. This high breathability is critical to your comfort because, simply put, sweaty feet are uncomfortable feet. Inside waterproof boots that are not breathable, moisture builds up and has nowhere to go. It then remains trapped against your skin, leaving your feet clammy, uncomfortable, and more prone to develop blisters. This can be even more of a problem in high aerobic activities because the more active you are, the more your feet sweat were talking up to one full cup of water a day! Sidis GORE-TEX lined boots is specifically designed to provide comfort and protection on a hard ride or for longer rides when the weather is warmer. The patented GORE-TEX membrane is where it all starts. Nestled between the boots outer top grain leather and the inner liner, this membrane keeps water out while letting your perspiration vapor escape. As part of Sidis waterproof guarantee, EVERY boot produced is tested for waterproofness and breathability. And, to make sure the whole boot breathes the way it should, all leather and other textile materials used to construct Sidi GORE-TEX boots are tested for breathability as well. So go on take that extra step. Take it in total comfort because youre wearing Sidi GORE-TEX boots!

needed something with solid protection and waterproofing, and a low-profile appearance that wouldn't have people smirking at me for dressing up for a trip around the world just to commute. these boots fit the bill in every sense.
Yes, I recommend this product.

this nice beefy back protector fit well into my old (but still serviceable) off-brand mesh jacket. it's fairly heavy and stiff, but in the jacket, I found it flowed air well enough and was otherwise quite comfortable.

super light, solidly put-together, ridiculously wide field of view. technically, I don't see how a helmet could get much better. it's a little noisy, but I usually ride with plugs, and it wasn't bad enough to distract me in the least, and certainly cause no additional fatigue.
purely personal opinion: coolest looking helmet around.
