Good helmet for the money.

OK i could not hold off till morning, so i took a quick stroll down the hwy,

first thing i noticed about the helmit , is it fogs, not bad , and once you start moveing it clears fast, it is realy quit, and well vented , given this is not a 2h ride in august but still. feals like a realy nice helmet, and if it had a nose gard it would be perfect! 9

the gloves well paded and comportable it tones down some of the fealing or fead back i get from the bike but still nice and i am sure once you ride with them a wile they will loosen up and thing will be better! 8

the boots well for now they are new so a bit snug, the heal placement is great , but they are alpinestare so what would you expect!
the toe is not to thick, so not to worried about adjusting my shifter. alaround 9 just couse nothing is perfect!
