I bought this jacket after spending a long time researching.
I wanted a jacket that:
can be part of a two piece suit
doesn't have a race hump (not needed for everyday riding)
provided the highest amount of protection
has some air flow (I felt that too much perf would reduce durability)
This jacket fits all of those criteria exceptionally well.
After using it for more than a year I know that this was a great choice for everyday use.
There is a new updated version of this jacket that was made for some CE rating reasons. I'm sure that one is great, but if you have a chance to pick this one up, you won't be disappointed.

Shark Evoline 3 ST Century Hi Viz Helmet Sharks masterpiece continues on its evolution. Never has a helmet given you such options between street/road riding, open or full face. Improvements to the Series 3 include Easier manipulation of the chinbar thanks to the Auto-Up system. The unique motion of the Evoline remains unchanged and has become even more natural with the Series3. The Auto-Up system has been simplified - chinbar and main shield are now united in a single movement. Fabrics, finish and style. The interior of the Evoline Series 3 has been totally redesigned and is softer, better and more comfortable. Brand new ventilation design fore and aft. Overall lower weight has been decreased by approximately 200 grams. Features Lexan Polycarbonate shell Shark Easy Fit system for comfortable use with glasses Sharktooth ready Integrated drop down sun shield Removable and washable CoolMax liner ECE 2205 approved with chinbar in both open and closed position ECE 2205 and DOT approved

I've used modular helmets before but it always seemed a bit unfinished.
Evoline 3 goes that extra step to make it function fully as a three quarter helmet on the fly.
I don't use it has modular too often because I like the safety of a full faced helmet but I do use it that way when stuck in traffic or going slowly around time during summer.
I had to get some thinner cheek pads to accommodate my face. As a reference Arai RX-Q and Corsair V fits extremely comfortably for me. Shoei RF 1200 fits too narrow for me in the head.
Excellent fit and finish. High visibility (this graphic). Nice sporty shape. A big thumbs up.

Great for pairing my Dainese jackets with any riding jeans. This product wearing jeans feel much more secure. It is quite difficult to thread a belt through once you have pants on already... almost impossible actually. Make sure to thread the belt in before putting them on.
A bit cheap feeling but seems like it will hold in any event of a crash.
I do recommend this for safety reasons.

Original cheekpads out of my Medium Evoline 3 were too tight for me. I bought the thinnest pads and they made a huge difference. I don't feel so squashed anymore.
Not as comfortable or feels as good as my Arai cheekpads but not distracting or detracting at all while riding.

Great looks. Take them for what they are, they are pretty much normal shoes with minor protective elements.
They are also pretty flexible. I found them to be quite comfortable while driving my manual car, easy clutch feels.
I recommend these for some light riding but nothing more.

I've been wearing Rev'it's sand pro gloves as my everyday gloves due to their tremendous comfort but I wanted to get something more protective. I have a pair of Dainese Full Metal and Full Metal RS. Both are great but being gauntlets, not the most convenient. So I got these and no regrets so far.
I have quite wide hands. My palm is almost square. This has made it very difficult to find well fitting gloves but as a result I've tried a huge number of them. While my hands are not small, I decided to go with size Small.
My large Full Metals fit very comfortably but fingers are too long in whatever position. My medium Full Metal RSs has perfect length fingers when gripping but feels a bit too long when reaching for levers. Small Druid S-ST gloves are perfect. After breaking them in, they're comfortable always. Keep in mind that these, like any other leather gloves, break in. These were not perfect fitting out of the box.
I prefer the looks of Full Metal but these still look great on my sportsbike and on my cruiser. I recommend these wholeheartedly.

I love my Corsair V but I've found that when I wear it for more than an hour I start to get pressure points.
Finally decided to get this to relieve the pressure. It worked. The helmet still fits snugly.
Wish these were available as a choice. I feel like they really should be when you are buying such an expensive helmet... but I suppose it's good they they at least offer these as an option.

It's always difficult to find well fitting shoes as I have wide feet. I am a huge fan of Dainese but I've found none of their shoes/boots to fit me well.
Fortunately, I've found SIDI to fit comfortably for me. I do have to go a half size bigger though. On their Mega series, I wear a 9.5US but on their normal line up I wear a 10US.
These shoes are extremely easy to get in and out of from. That makes these go to shoes for riding around in town or even on the highway. They feel extremely well put together. Stiff and protective.
I worried about hard parts scratching the bike but haven't had any trouble with it.
I highly recommend these shoes. Buy the best gear you can afford and I would say these are the best shoes available for any price.

SIDI Mag 1 Boots The Sidi Mag-1 Boots feature an innovative internal brace system constructed from carbon fiber for the ultimate in support and light weight design. The Mag-1 Boots weigh in at 4.4 pounds each, or 17 less than the Vortice boots. An all new Micrometric Tecno 3 magnetic closure system makes adjustments quick and easy and the internal brace system provides ankle stability and flexibility. The rear upper is made in polyurethane and is assembled to the boot with two screws one on the outside under the TECNO-3 Magnetic mechanism, the other on the inside which holds the micrometric adjuster strap. The screws support and block the internal support system which is made with carbon fiber beams, making up the frame of the boot. This system allows excellent flex movement front-to-back while being firm side-to-side. An all new Micrometric Tecno-3 magnetic closure mechanism is easy and quick to use as well as being highly adjustable and light in weight. The TECNO-3 Magnetic closures close the boot with an extremely resistant steel wire, that is hooked to the clip with the aid of a magnet. Sidi has created an incredibly solid boot with well-chosen design elements and materials to create a very lightweight, yet ultra-protective race boot system. Features Arch and Achilles areas are covered with Sidis exclusive elastic textile and injection molded polyurethane comfort panels Arch area utilizes two TPU bands next to the TECNO-3 Magnetic closures, for a maximum support and wrap of the arches Asymmetric and shaped shock absorbing heel cup, smooth and flat inside for more adherence with the bike, with shock absorbing system in the back and outside The shell and the shock absorbing system are replaceable through a screw and an interlocking system Nylon inner sole with removable arch support pad Replaceable external shin, heel and toe sliders Nylon inner sole Dual compound sole High stress areas are double stitched TPU shift pad Perforated, Teflon treated nylon inner lining with Cambrelle lining in the toe area Recessed screws used to attach replaceable parts so as to not damage bike Toe slider made from nylon reinforced with fiberglass Toe Slider features new air intake and alloy insert Adjustable calf on the Sidi Mag-1 Boots can accommodate riders with up to an 15-inch calf diameter when measured 11.5-inches up from the bottom of the heel

I've been looking to buy the most protective boots I can get my hands on. These fit the bill.
I've been reluctant to buy the Vortice because it seemed like too much hassle to get them on and off and one thing about gear, if it's inconvenient, it ends up not being used...
Updates/upgrades to these make it so much easier to use. I do have wider feet and I wear 9.5 US in Mega series from SIDI but 10 in these. I do find them quite comfortable.
Protection seems rock solid, hopefully I won't have to find out but I do feel confident in them. I love the styling on these boots, looks technical.
Biggest takeaway I would say is the ease of usage. I would even use these everyday, given I had street shoes for off the bike.
