Over the years, I wore Vanson, Dainese, Alpinestar, Olympia, First Gear, Shoei, and most other high dollar gear, and was skeptical (and probably still am a little) about Bilt when it came out. Still, for the price, I decided to give their Explorer line a try. This was January's deal when you buy their jacket and get the pants, helmet, and gloves included.
I've bought lots of stuff from Cycle Gear and can vouch for their customer service. I'm relying on that along with Bilt's 5 year guarantee to cover me if my little experiment shows this stuff to be remotely junk.
