The new 2012 K4 Evo meets both DOT and ECE 22.05 safety standands. When choosing a helmet, find one that fits very snug yet comfortable. Once broken in they tend to loosen up around your head. Last thing you want is a loose helmet during an unfortunate crash.
Quoted for truth. My helmet was nice and snug at first (that's what she said... sorry, couldn't help it), but now I can nearly roll the dang thing off my head with the strap cinched down tight. Ungood!

Yeah I dunno about Cordura. I bought some cheap xelement pants that were made from Cordura brand textile and I swear, I think the stuff started to shred before I even hit the ground in a lowside. I've had a chance to inspect other gear at CG and it looked tougher.

I still wear all leather, but id be willing to give a good jacket a shot. Especially since I'm planning on riding year round.
