Great waterproofing but you wouldn't think it from the fabric. It seems to be made from paper!! Only downside for me was that it compresses down to the size of a football (not that compact). However, do like fact that the jacket comes with a hood and there is a separate cinch sack for storage. Fits nicely in my seat compartment of my Vespa GT200 (but takes up about half the available space.

Jumping through hoops to get that new bike onto base While Icon cant help you bypass military regulations, they can help you meet them without looking like a construction worker The Mil Spec vest was designed to pass all military requirements for a mandatory reflective vest No bright orange reflective vest is ever going to win you fashion awards, but if you have to wear one, and you do, it might as well have the style and features that wont make you cringe Removable I.D. holder Adjustable fit Reflective taping (front and back) Storage pockets

Vest fits well (snug but stretches), vents beautifully and makes you stand out like a Roman candle. Very well made and incredible value for money. Only downside for me was the huge Icon logo on the back.

First pair I got were too small. Make sure you size up from the sizing chart provided. Very comfortable gloves and not too bulky. Went on a 2.5 hour ride in 40 degrees recent. About an hour into ride, finger tips started getting really cold. Halfway through stopped and warmed my hands on the belt casing (great way to quickly warm your hands). These are not long distance warm gloves (should probably go for heated gloves or grips) but great for relatively short distances (depending on the temp). Well constructed. I expect to get many years of good use out of them.

Initially tried the large but was way too small. RevZilla quickly swapped for an XL which fits great (if a slightly on the large size). Everything already written about this great helmet is true. One downside is lens fogging in cold weather. Went for a ride yesterday in 44 degrees a fogging was a huge problem. You have to lift or crack the visor at stop lights in order to have clear enough vision to be safe. I have ordered the Pinlock system (replacement visor plus Pinlock lens) which, apparently is the answers. However adding another $60 to an already very pricey helmet makes this an expensive purchase.
