I chose my red jacket based on chest size. I'm 6'4", 175 lbs, 38" chest. Jacket fits absolutely perfect in the chest and shoulders for me. Chest and back vent as expected. There is little to no perforation in the forearms. Late summer riding in Arizona leaves my forearms and biceps sweaty so it can be tough to wriggle out of the jacket sometimes.
I have unusual physiology....really long arms, broad shoulders, small chest, so this jacket sits slightly short at the elbows, and even shorter at the cuffs than most of my other jackets. Gloves cover the gap, but even with full Knox Handroids, the rolled neoprene barely stay in them. The sleeves of the jacket seem to want to pull out of the gloves while I'm riding, and sometimes the armpits feel excessively tight. If you prefer shorties, and are built anything like me, the jacket won't make it all the way. Check pic.
However
All of this is quite easily solved by being less lazy and riding in a more aggressive tuck. The precurve and stretch panels take up and give slack, and the pressure in my armpits goes away, the elbows don't feel as short, tight and awkward. But, this causes the jacket to pull up in the back, where it already feels too short. It sits well above my hips. So much so, that I'm considering not even buying AGV compatable pants to zip into the jacket for fear that I wouldn't be able to ride the pants high enough for the zippers to connect.
Overall, good jacket, just slightly shorter than others I have.
Check image upload.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Arai RX-Q DNA Helmet Designed for the street without giving up the benefits of a racing helmet. Completely new helmet based on Corsair V shell Same wider eyeport opening as Corsair V Same face shield as the Corsair V Intermediate Oval Fit (same head shape as Quantum 2) Slightly different feel due to new cheek pads. New cheek pads come down further and cradle the head better. Made of a different density material which results in an extremely comfortable and quiet helmet Advanced ventilation Smaller, More Aerodynamic shell shape Hyper-Ridge circles lower shell to improve strength and aerodynamics Retractable chin spoiler Emergency Cheek Pad Removal system along with removable neck roll One piece bottom edge trim Race helmet for the street 5 unique size shells (XS, S, M/L, XL, XXL). Weight 1597 grams (3 lbs. 8-1/4 oz) The Arai RX-Q DNA Meets or exceeds SNELL 2010 and DOT specifications

Exactly true to the hype and reviews. It is exceptionally light, confortable. I tired it on and opened the vents and could feel airflow with only a gentle afternoon breeze moving the air. Horizontally, I can't see the edges of the helmet. It literally extends around further than my vision does. In the 3/4 forward riding position, the wind noises quiet down considerably producing almost no buffeting noises at around 40mph. With the visor down and locked, you can hear the change in noise level as it seals into place. Cheekpads are tight by design, removable foam bits are perfect for getting a "custom" fit. This helmet does not offer bang for your buck, it offers exactly what you pay for and exceeds all online pics and vids. The RX-Q DNA paint job does have sparkle flake throughout, and the stripe in the back is more red than orange imo. Like everyone else, I am extremely pleased with this product.
