Back protection is a must-have. I purchased the Wave G for my Dainese Air Frame jacket. I wear a size 38 and it fits into the compartment without issue. There is no sliding or moving around while riding either, so it gives me confidence that the protection will be there in a crash. I only wish it were Level 2 rated. Somewhat less air flow when wearing this, but still quite comfortable.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Dainese Air-Frame Textile Jacket Focus Continued comfort under changing weather conditions with excellent ventilation is hard to achieve in a ventilated jacket because whenever the temperature drops, the wearer immediately feels cold. In this case, the Air-Frame jacket offers the best solution by combining the ventilation achieved by ample inserts in mesh with protection against cold air offered by a remarkably lightweight windcheating insert. Provided with ample adjustment possibilities, jacket-pants fastening zip, homologated protectors and a pocket for a G-type back protector, this versatile jacket also comes in a ladies version. Features Removable composite protectors certified to EN 1621.1/97 Standard Boomerang fabric Quick Dry fabric Mesh fabric. Neck adjustment Waist adjustment Wrist adjustment Sleeve volume adjustment Jacket-trousers fastening system Removable wind-breaker liner Sanitized lining Pocket for backspace G1 and G2 Reflective inserts 2 outside pockets Internal pocket

This is a great jacket for staying cool in hot weather and looking good while doing it! When it comes to design, Dainese knows their stuff. I purchased mine in all black. The fit is on the slim, form-fitting side. I wear a 36 suit, so intially ordered the jacket in 36. It fit fine until I put the Wave G back protector in, then it was just a bit too snug, so I exchanged for a 38 and now it is perfect. Armor pieces are all securely located where they should be. The retroreflective pieces on the arms are a nice touch. The price is high, but that is the cost of Italian design quality. And unfortunately you will need to purchase a back protector separately, which really is a necessity given that the spine needs to be protected. But overall I am very happy with the purchase and expect to use this jacket for many years!
Yes, I recommend this product.

I have had these gloves for a little over a month now and have ridden about 1,000 miles with them. I just recently got into motorcycles and this is my first pair of gloves. I got them because I wanted something that would flow enough air to deal with hot Vegas summers. Also being my first pair, I wanted something not too expensive in case I lost them. These gloves meet both criteria well. Fit is good, although slightly long in the fingers and I feel that the material in the palm bunches up a little bit, but nothing major. Durability-wise, they have held up well so far. The only issue I can possibly foresee is that the velcro wrist enclosure is rather small, so I wonder how it holds up long term. But again, no issue so far. As far as protection, it is rather mininmal given that it is an entry-level summer glove, but that is the tradeoff associated with any hot weather gear. But from what I can tell, the leather in the palms and the soft insert on the knuckles will at least prevent any major road rash in any low or intermediate speed crashes.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I just got these last night and took a ride in them to test them out. First off let me say props to Revzilla for super fast shipping! I have been trying to get these shoes ordered through a local store and they were taking weeks to get it in. Revzilla had it to me next day!
As for the shoes themselves, they are very light and comfortable with excellent styling that is not too flashy when off the bike (I got the all black color). The lacing and velcro are easy to use and provide a secure fit. I really like the tactile feel they provide on the pegs and shift lever. They are NOT however, going to offer the best amount of protection in a crash situation since they do not extend up to the shin, so understand that you are going to compromise safety for comfort with these shoes. I am a casual rider living in Vegas heat, so I knowingly accept this compromise. But they are definitely a step up in protection over sneakers, which is what I would probably wear otherwise.
Yes, I recommend this product.
