I bought this to see me through the colder months and it is working well. I only need a t-shirt underneath as the liners do a great job of keeping the heat in (I cancelled an order for a heated liner when I discovered just how warm this jacket is!).
It has pretty much every feature one might need when touring in different climates and it has style to match. I ride a BMW and had this jacket side-by-side with the BMW offerings which I really wanted to buy to complete the look :-) However, in terms of features, style and value for money the Dainese Teren was the best choice. Plus it is compatible with my Dainese back protector and leather pants.

I got to these after trying several different gloves from Dainese and, although expensive, they are well worth the investment. The protection is fantastic, air flow adequate and I do like the styling. I would rather the kevlar liner was not visible as the ragged yellow edge makes them look like there are quality issues with the stitching (there are not).
With regards to size, I have found that other Dainese gloves fit me perfectly when I first put them on but when curled my hand round the grips on the bike, the fingers were too short which became uncomfortable after a while. With these they are a little long in the finger which means a perfect fit when gripping the bike.

Made in cowhide with split leather inserts, the Cafe Boot features nylon inserts over the ankle and a breathable double jersey mesh liner under a vintage look to satisfy even the most technical and demanding rockers.

Decided to use some Zilla cash I had to treat myself to these. I needed a pair of boots for the winter and went for them over the Fryes fashion boots I had my eye on since they could also double up as riding boots.
Stylish and ridiculously comfortable out of the box, modest protection (to be fair, everything is modest next to my Axial Pros). I think these will really look good with some scuffs and creases on them when they break in. Slightly large in the toe box so I could get away with the 41s they had in stock v the 42 I normally wear in Dainese.
Only negatives I would say is that they look a bit chunkier than the photos suggest which gives them a slightly different look. If they were as slim and low profile as the photo it would be a 5 star review.
Can't go wrong with the product or the store. "Dainese and Revzilla - emptying my bank account since 2007"

I have owned a whole bunch of Dainese jackets from the sporty Aliens and Avros to the more austere Razon as well as various other name brands. Having eschewed predominantly black jackets as being too low key for the apparently blind drivers around here I decided to try to find something more sporty and visible which was not too outrageous for my taste.
I believe Dainese have nailed it with the Super Speed, especially the Black / White / Fluo Red version I purchased. It's comfortable, protective and features just the right amount of accent color to make it "pop". The mini speed hump does the job subtly and looks the part without being a full-on race size.
Fit is slim / athletic and the sizing is typically Euro (i.e. slightly small by US standards) but since I'm European it's dead-nuts on what I expect it to be. I wear a 50 in everything Dainese and with the optional G2 back protector in it is just a little tight. This should wear in the more I ride with it and conform to my body shape.
The collar is different than the other Dainese jackets I have owned and this is for the better. It doesn't ride up or cut into your neck at the front and there are no snaps to secure either. I think this aspect is a major comfort upgrade although I did order a Dainese neck roll to keep the cold out on chillier riding days due to the slightly lower cut.
The only criticism I would make is that not all colors are currently available in both the perf / non-perf versions and the 3D bubble liner is only fitted in certain areas, not all over the inside of the jacket like the Alien.
Now they just need to hurry up and release the matching black / white / fluoro red pants!
Dainese Contact Gore-Tex Gloves Raindrops pounding against your visor, your tires are slipping on the wet asphalt, but your wrist is steady and keeps the bike under control. Driving over a mountain pass in the pouring rain takes no little concentration and an excellent grip on the handlebars, especially with a sports bike between your legs. The Contact gloves are designed for the most athletic riders who need waterproof gloves capable of an incomparably guaranteed grip on the handlebars. X-TRAFIT technology with its a GORE-TEX membrane glued directly to the outside of the glove, helps to avoid the slipping over the internal padding on the palm whenever the hand turns. This is an excellent choice as a waterproof warm and cool (spring / fall) weather glove. It does not have a thermal lining. Protection Composite inserts in carbon on the knuckles Distortion Control on little finger Ergonomics and Comfort Goatskin leather Reinforced palm Elasticated inserts Adjustable cuff strap Tightening strap Pre-curved finger Breathable waterproof GORE-TEX membrane with X-TRAFIT product technology Other Reflective inserts Soft inserts

First of all let me say that the service from Revzilla is fantastic. My local dealer (a large motorcycle store chain) let me down. I waited nearly four weeks for them to get me the right size in these boots despite being told a week, max. I eventually got fed up waiting, cancelled the order at 3pm one day, went online immediately and ordered these from Revzilla. They arrived late morning the following day despite me being several states away and the boots being shipped ground. With service like that it's like they ARE my local dealer! Bravo Revzilla.
Now, on to the boots. I am just getting into riding for the first time and wanted something unobtrusive and form fitting but still protective. These fit the bill perfectly. I have a slim, athletic build and find that the Dainese gear is cut perfectly for me. I bought these in advance of my MSF course so that I could break them in beforehand - I really didn't want to be worrying about feel or comfort when learning / testing. However, these require no break in. Comfortable, flexible and and very true to US size for me. I can't comment on the air flow as I have yet to use them on the open road but I do not expect any issues in that regard as the upper is highly perforated.
I have tried to buy the best quality I can afford, first time (buy once, cry once) and nothing from Dainese has disappointed me thus far.
With the comprehensive video reviews by Anthony, the prices, service and selection, Revzilla is the first place I look for gear.
