Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've had the helmet for long enough now to know it's a very nice option for a convertible helmet. I'm a long time user of the Bell Super 2R and 3R and I really like those options as well so I would recommend them strongly too. Overall I'd say the follow-

Pros of the Leatt-
Very good field of vision
Very comfortable
Smaller overall and less storm trooper looking without chin guard
Magnetic Buckle
Color/appearance/style
Venting

Cons of Leatt-
Fitting System does not feel as secure
Helmet by itself is not as protective as Super 3r Helmet only
The chin guard seems to sit lower than the 3r so it protects chin more but leaves face a little more venerable.
Leatt feels less protective than the 3r
Back straps are tricky when putting the helmet on with the chin guard
Larger chin guard is more difficult to fit in pack
No ear holes when chin guard is on so less able to hear surroundings
Long visor that can hamper otherwise good field of vision
No good way to put glasses on top of helmet when climbing
Visor screw broke after one fall(never had that happen on Bell Super)

If the Bell Super 3R was a little smaller overall I would pick it over the Leatt. However, it's a bigger helmet and feels a little more confining. For trail and light enduro I think the Leatt is a winner because it is so comfortable. I would not feel as secure in the Leatt on park days like I would with the Bell Super 3r but I have a downhill helmet for those days. Hope this is helpful and Happy Trails

I want to love these gloves and at first I did. However, the padding in the palm goes too far up in my hand. It bugs me when I am gripping the handlebars because the stiff gel pad cuts into my palm a little bit. There are 4 sections of padding in the palm and if there were only 3 sections these things would be perfect. This probably won't bug most people but I am really picky when it comes to the contact point between my hands and bike. Seams, too much padding, bunching drives me freaking crazy. I'd ride barehanded if I could be I've ripped up my hand enough times with gloves on to know that is not a good idea. The rest of the glove is great, the fit, velcro closure, snot wipe, material in the palm, etc. Just my 2 cents.

I like this pack for many reasons but there are a couple of things that bother me. The suspension system is a little heavy and it takes up space in the pack. Also, the bottom of the suspension frame sits right on the waist of my shorts and pushes them down a little bit. It is surprisingly annoying and I am often needing to pull my shorts up.
I use this pack for mountain biking and the pockets and organization compartments are almost perfect for keeping things in their place.
I LOVE the waist belt pockets. They are perfect for a cell phone/small camera and energy bars. You can easily pull out your camera for those quick nature shots without all of the fuss of taking off your whole pack. The hipbelt pockets also promote staying fueled because it is so easy to access a gel shot, or a quick bite of an energy bar.
