I have a 2010 661 full face, and the visor was made from such brittle material it broke on the first easy fall. I took a piece of it and was even able to snap it in half with two fingers. So I go to 661 looking for a replacement, ready to pay them for it, and they tell me it's out of stock. Probably because everyone else broke their cheap visors too. So, tough luck. Their only suggestion was to buy a new helmet. Great planned obsolescence, guys -- the helmet is only eight months old and been used a half dozen times. I won't be buying anything from 661 again.

I have three pair of Nema race pants and three of their shorts. These are the best constructed, tough on the outside, comfy on the inside, biking pants and shorts I've ever worn. They kick butt on TLD or Fox and those are companies I admire. Nema has set the standard as far as I'm concerned. I love the white pants --look great and they come out of the wash like new no matter how much mud I get on them. Amazing.

I pitched this tent in my backyard in the middle of a Utah winter for two weeks, now. Better to test it there, than in the back-country. It held up easily to 40mph gusts, rain and light snow. I even put the garden hose on it one day when temps were above freezing. It stayed bone dry inside. Last night was -15 degrees with windchill so I tested out my Kelty bag inside the tent. Toasty warm. So far I'd say "Highly Recommended," and would call it a 3.5-season tent.

The hood and waist cinch up and the cuffs velcro tight. The funky window pocket on the chest works great for ID, so the paramedics can call your mom after you take a Superman into a tree. Behind the window is an iPod pocket that let's you route the buds through the inside of the coat. It's def waterproof but "breathable" might be a stretch. No worries though, I just unzipped the long arm pit vents, and I cooled right down. Although it's well thought out and seemingly well constructed, I don't think I'd give more than a hundred bones for it.

Well, these fit me a lot better than some of the other reviewers. The thigh pads line up a bit more forward than they do in the pictures, which is probably more useful since falling forward is more likely than falling sideways. The tail bone protector is not as described or pictured -- it's not articulated. It's a single piece of scored plastic. Until I take a shot in the a$$, I really can't comment on its effectiveness. If you can get these half off on CL (which I did) I think they're worth it. Far more comfortable to me than some of the other reviewers. I'm 6'1" with a 33" waist and the large fit great. I imagine these would be tight on a Quadzilla.
