It's got about 150K miles on it, and it's still my daily helmet.

I should add a comment about my West Marine Foulies. Nearly 20 years old and still going. Used for motorcycling, sailing and diving.

Took my new air hawk (pneumatic seat cushion) out for the first time on sunday. Holy crap! I was really impressed. The seat on my ktm 990 adventure really sucks, and after a few hours my butt really starts to hurt. Finished a six hour ride and wasn't sore at all. Had to play with the amount of air (very little reqd) but once it was set the cushion was great. Easy on and off means its simple to remove when needed (eg in the dirt). Awesome product.

My SIDI On-Road boots, 10 years or so old now and they never let me down. Hoping the Teiz suit I bought from another inmate makes the list too.

The one Uncle Sam gave me made a great hatchet, shovel, cooking tool, tent stake pounder etc... When it finally gave up the ghost. 1973 till 2009 what a piece of crap. It had broken previously and had a home-made tanto blade. I replaced it with this.

http://www.amazon.com/Ka-bar-1278-Ka.../dp/B004NN5QEA

I will not use it as a pry bar, I will not use it as a tire spoon, I will not get it red hot and use it as a soldering iron....

Cool blade. Reminds me of the Condor Hudson's Bay knife. Bullet proof. 8 1/2" blade, 13 3/8" long, 3/16" thick 1075 carbon steel blade. Nice leather sheath.

For me it would have to be Warm and Safe heated gear. I just traded up my Gerbings gear using the WandS trade up program.

Everything is much better quality then Gerbings. The owner of the company is easily accessible. And most importantly it keeps you warm.

My only gripe is that the heated socks are just too hot and can burn your feet. I will try wearing an undersock.

The remote wireless thermostat works great. The jacket clings to your body due to elasticated panels.

I just traded in my luke warm Gerbings gloves for W&S gloves and hopefully they will be good too

I agree about the Warm and Safe. One more thing, for the ladies out there these jacket liners fit a female body a lot better than any other heated liner out there, the ladies sizes really are made women's bodies.
