I'm 6'1" 180lbs long arms and the fit is good with medium. Surprisingly, the sleeves are long enough but they do fit tight and I don't have big arms, I'd say average. I was disappointed with 2 things. First is the back protector, doesnt feel nearly as protective as my AlpineStar bio protector, though both are Level 2 CE approved, see pics, it looks like a pre-production prototype. The armor in the shoulders and elbows though are excellent yet could be slightly thinner (like D30). The main issue is that it feels delicate when you put it on (feels more like a 150$ shirt then a 300$ shirt), hearing stitches break under arm pit for example, the material is extensible, but the stitching isnt. I doubt it will last more then a season. I was going to return it, but since I'm from Canada, I already paid over 30$ in taxes and fees, and I have to pay to send it back so probably another 40-60$ with insurances. Just not worth the hassle. Lesson learned, dont buy clothing from another country unless you tried it in store first. When it rips, I'll just keep the shoulder and elbow armoes, trash the shirt and go buy a proper Dainese shirt in store.

Very confident inspiring back protector. Nice design, great fit. Slightly hot in hottest summer days. The only thing that they need to address is the Velcro, for most people I know, it barely last a summer before if doesn't grip enough to hold together. That said I like it so much I'll just have some quality velcro installed on it and should be good for a few more seasons.

REV'IT! Horizon Pants Companion to the Horizon jacket, the Horizon trousers offer 100 waterproofing. Their outer shell is basically allergic to water, repelling its pickup (assuming that you occasionally clean the shell). REV'IT! considers the REVIT Horizon trousers to be the number one choice for daily commuters and serious touring enthusiasts. Without the removable thermoliner in place, it's the most durably waterproof, abrasion-resistant, and multi-functional over-pants you will find. The fit is casual enough to wear over jeans. Airflow comes directly through the side pockets, which also give you straight access to your jeans pockets - in case you need some change for the toll.

I usually wear size 34" and fit in just about anything, this feels like a size 32". I took the LONG option so length was perfect for my 6'1" 190lbs build but it really felt like they were sized like jeans, I could only wear them without the liner or jeans on me. Also ordered the XL jacket (I usually wear Large) and same thing, too small, cant wear it with the warm liner, sleeve length was perfect to my surprised and I have long arms.
The cut and look of this suit is great, but make sure you can try it out in store cause the size charts are way way off. And really consider upgrading the armor, cause really they are pretty useless (thats why the 2 star rating on protection) the rest looks solid.
