I bought these late in the Spring season when I couldn't feel my fingers at the end of a 45 minute ride, even with ski gloves and liners. So, I haven't seen how they'll do in really cold weather (<40F) - I've only had them on medium heat so far. They should get me through the entire season between snow disappearing and reappearing.
The gloves are well-insulated and are too warm for >~50F.
One problem was that there was no paperwork in the box, and nothing available online with Gerbing. I had bought them retail at the Philly store, so I called Revzilla. They apologized and suggested I first contact Gerbing. I did so and they quickly emailed me the directions.

I bought this jacket for water protection - and it does that perfectly! I also bought it for visibility - the bright blue is hopefully helpful with "Do you see me now?".
The tradeoff is that it is quite warm on warm, rainy days. But it makes an excellent light jacket / windbreaker on cooler days.
The jacket is also a little long and ends up under your butt, providing less traction on the seat.

 Scorpion EXO-500 Oil Helmet
Scorpion EXO-500 Oil Helmet
Scorpion EXO-500 Oil Helmet The Scorpion EXO-500 immediately catches the eye with its innovative design, enhanced by a superb sharp ridge on the underside of the shell. Inspired by its older brother, the Scorpion EXO-1000, the EXO 500 Helmet is based on GT philosophy and is fitted as standard with the latest generation face shield. The EXO-500 also integrates the SpeedView built-in retractable sunvisor treated with anti-fog coating on both sides. Comprising 3 shell sizes and a lighter, more durable shell than its predecessor, the Scorpion EXO-500 Helmets will drastically change your expectations of a standard full face helmet. Featuring a very soft KwikWick 2 inner liner and triple density foam cheek pads, the EXO500 is also equipped with the revolutionary Airfit technology and a state-of-the-art ventilation system. Chances are, this Scorpion will steal the show from much more expensive helmets. Features KwikWick 2 liner soft, moisture wicking, hypoallergenic, removable, and machine washable SpeedView retractable sunvisor treated with antifog on both sides AirFit technology inflate and deflate the cheek pads to make it fit perfectly for a better fit, greater safety and shock absorption SpeedShift visor system enables extremely quick visor changes EverClear no-fog visor optically-correct, aero-tuned shield with state-of-the art fog-free technology and anti-scratch hardened coating Advanced polycarbonate composite engineered shell quiet, aero-tuned designed and wind-tunnel tested EPS-lined chin bar for additional protection Triple density foam cheek pads 3 shell sizes 3 year warranty

I've had the helmet for 2 years now, and constantly get compliments on the look and function.
The SpeedView Retractable sunvisor is totally awesome! I ride in New England where I go from shade to full sun, and I can flip the sunvisor up and down in a snap with my clutch hand.
I'm not sure that the Airfit pump ever worked, but it fits fine without it - it wasn't a feature I was looking for anyway.
I does run small compared to HJC - one size up is perfect.
I don't have anything to compare it to, so I don't know on a relative basis, but the air is a little loud coming through the top vents at highway speeds or when I crack the visor in cold weather to keep it from fogging up at byways speeds.
I have a little trouble getting my glasses in over the cheek pads, but ... oh well, it still works. [I did call Scorpion about it and got a helpful, live person!!, but they didn't have any suggestions.]

Ugly:
1) [as the reviews said] The stirrup snaps tend to pop apart when putting on. Haven't come undone when riding yet, though ... which would be distracting.
2) The little piece of velcro BETWEEN the 2 zipper halves confuses me - it just snags the ankle flap and gets in the way. When would you ride without the leg zipper zipped?
3) The ankle flap velcro and snap are so near each other, the ankle flap doesn't feel as secure as it should be. With the good fit around the ankle/calf, I'm thinking that the stirrup straps are going to be coming off soon.
Bad:
1) There is NO way to put them on with boots (only size 8.5). I used my Yamaha rainsuit bootie and it works great, though!
2) The pocket zippers don't work smoothly, and will probably break? (very fine teeth)
Good:
1) So far, only light rain, but bone dry! It feels like it's leaking at the shins, but it's dry - I think it's just the cold[er] temperature of the rainwater.
2) I haven't been a SM adult size since Junior High, but it's a perfect fit (5'8", 180 lbs, 32" waist)!
3) The jacket zipper just happens to fit my Yamaha jacket too!
