I go agatt. I have the pants with pads in the knee, it does not flap around. If it did I have the option of taking it out or moving it to anther position. I wear a modular helmet most of the time. I have a 3\4 with sheild and half helmet. My bike has a windsheild. Still get hit in the face with bugs and other things when wearing other helmets. Have winter and summer overpants. Textile mesh jacket for warm weather to hot. Wear leather jacket in cold. Light weight gloves in hot weather. Heavy gloves in cooler to cold weather.
