In the same (getting older) boat as many of the posters, and the thought of "fun sizing" has occurred more often. The PCX sounds pretty darn good. I love my electric vest, though. Does anyone know...

No particular experience with them (mine are insulated) but you might look at the Aerostich Elkskin Roper gauntlets. I think they also offer deer skin uninsulated gauntlets.

Can't remember the brand name, but I got a pair WAY long ago at Wal-Mart..they were open cell foam, and as it turned out way too big for my hands. They looked like a good idea, though.

Messenger bag....

Pricey, but I like the Aerostich Dispatch and Courier bags. I adjust the straps so the weight sits on the pillion seat, and am very happy with the results. YMMV

It's not what you asked about, but I tried backpacks (admittedly not Kriegas), and find that I'm MUCH happier with a Courier Bag from Aerostich.
