I've had this jacket in Red for more years than I can remember and so when I decided the high visibility yellow made safety sense I would only look for the same jacket I've enjoyed for umpteen years but in a different color. Always stick with a winner. The comfort is outstanding, and it is easy to spot in a crowd, fits right and is just another reason to buy First Gear. I feel like I get more than my money's worth and can see no reason to have to ever replace this jacket. I bet it will last longer than I will. Ed

These are great gloves for those cold mornings or rain. The back is lightly insulated while the palm is soft leather. I use these with heated grips and have been comfortable with temperature down in the 40's and up to about 70. What I like the most about them is they aren't bulky like most insulated gloves. It is easy to work controls with the non insulated finger surface while the insulated back keeps your fingers warm. I've used them in a couple of heavy rains and they kept my hands warm and comfortable. They are easy to put on and take off with the inside Gortex layer bonded to the outside. I usually wear a large but these are a little loose. My hands are long but not big around so I don't know if a medium would fit better or the fingers would be too short.

I bought the largest one. It would droop over a normal size luggage rack like a saddle bag but I have what looks like a 14"x 22" flat bed affixed on top of my luggage rack so the bag only droops a couple inches on each side. It's huge when you need it to be and folds compactly when not as much stuff is needed on a given trip. I haven't run it through a storm yet but I am confident these type of bags are totally water proof.

Surprisingly, very good pair of boots for the price. Almost perfect fit. I'm a size 10-10.5 and since they don't offer half sizes, I ordered the 10s. Yes, tight at first. But they stretched out nicely without using bee's wax.

I ordered a size 10. Typically for shoes I wear a 9.5. Even with the size 10, it fits like a 9.5 or detestably a larger size 9. I knew for a fact an 11 wouldn't fit me because I've never ranged that high, but if you wear a 10 or 10.5 for most of your shoes I'd order an 11. Other than that, these boots are exactly what I was looking for as far as height, durability, and style. Great product, no regrets at all!

For the past 8 years I wore the Firstgear "VeraTex" boots. They were great boots and lasted longer than expected. Alas they are worn out and I ordered the same size in Kili Lo WP boots by Firstgear. Although the boots claim to be the same size, they are not. The sole length is the same but the with is at least 1/2" narrower and the instep is so tight that my foot could not slide into the boot. Same manufacturer, same boot size but different actual size. Almost like a ladies boot. If I go to size 13 I may look clownish and that wouldn't do!
