This cover fits well and the material is very durable, but I would rather the material be a little more flexible, more like a cloth cover than being a little stiff. Because the material is a little stiff, it does not hang on my bike like it shows in the picture, or as a cloth cover does that I have for my sport touring bike. That said, it should last quite awhile due to the material, and it does provide adequate cover while the bike is in the garage.

Very happy with this jacket. I typically wear an XL jacket of any type because I prefer a jacket to be very slightly loose to allow layering if wanted. Bought this jacket in XL and it fits perfectly and is very comfortable. With the liner in, it's comfortable even in the upper 50's/low 60's, and with the liner out, it's perfectly comfortable in higher temps because it allows excellent air flow. The only reason I gave it 4 stars on protection and features is that the armor is a little thin (it's a summer jacket) and the front pockets are a little hard to get into when on the bike-not difficult, just takes a little finesse. However, overall I'm very happy with this purchase and really love the comfort it provides for summer riding while also offering protection. Quality of the jacket is very good, and I like the ability to zip into my Olympia Airglide pants if I want to. Nice product, just what I wanted.

I needed a moderately protective dual sport boot that i could use for sport touring also, and these are exactly what i was looking for. I wore them on a 3-day ride on pavement and forest service roads, and they were very comfortable, stiff soled enough to withstand long periods of standing on the pegs, and were totally waterproof (it rained all day 2 of the 3 days). I wear a 10 1/2 shoe and occasionally an 11, and customer service recommended the 10-101/2. They fit perfectly and even seemed to loosen slightly after 3 days of constant use but only to the point of being even more comfortable. Yes, they are a little warm, and the snaps take a little getting used to, but that is not an issue compared to how well they performed for me otherwise. I consider them a great buy and am very happy with the purchase

I tried a different brand that cost a little less and was dissappointed in the fit. These pants fit me true to size; I'm 6', 36" waist with 34" inseam so bought XL tall per Olympia recommendations since I will use them as overpants. They fit perfectly and are very comfortable. I may need to hem them, but will wait and see after using them for awhile. The knee pads were quick and easy to adjust and align well when I'm seated on my bike. They fit more like true pants, so go size-up if you will wear them as overpants. I especially like that I can use a belt with them. Quality and features seem top-notch. Front pockets are a little small but still large enough for keys, cell phone, etc. Overall very happy with the purchase and highly recommend. (have not had them in the rain and will update later)
Yes, I recommend this product.

Very happy with this helmet. The fit feels very secure and comfortable. I have a modular Shoei XL, and bought an XL C3 based on the sizing chart-the C3 is more comfortable and fits more snugly, especially the cheek pads. They don't apply excessive pressure for me as other reviewers have mentioned. All the bells and whistles mentioned in the video review are well thought-out, well-made, and most important are solidly functional. The ventilation is outstanding-the chin vent immediately dissipated any fog after putting the helmet on(have not yet installed the pinlock visor), and the top vent supplies a ton of air- much more airflow than the Shoei. It is very quiet, but the noise level depends alot on the height of my windscreen and whether the chin vent is open. But it's still far more quiet than my other helmets. The sun visor is very clear and works well-no more switching visors if I need a tinted visor. The ratchet chinstrap makes releasing the strap easy, even with my gloves, but the hard components pinched my neck when I looked down-no problem, just loosened it a little and we're good. Overall quite impressed by the engineering, performance, and thought that went into this helmet-couldn't be happier.
Yes, I recommend this product.
