I agree with all the good things already mentioned about this jacket so I'll just mention a couple of things specific to me.
The sizing was good: I'm wearing a size 50 (10 up from jacket size) fits nicely, even with the small Forcefield back protector in place.
Air flow through the elbows and shoulders helps keep sweating down to a minimum when riding, even in 90+ degree heat: keep the cuffs open and you get additional air flow.
I have one disappointment with the jacket: The stitching of the zipper on the jacket-trouser fastening system started to come loose after only a week of wearing. Given its purpose and the price point of the jacket I expected a lot better.

Dainese Spartan 66 Leather Pants Dainese has taken the protective aspects of leather and combined them with the comfort of fabric in the Spartan66. Innovative and patented 2skin technology is used in construction to bring the biaxial elastic properties of S1 fabric to the mechanical qualities of the leather, to which it is laminated at the points that require greater strength. This also permits extreme mobility and peerless ergonomics for the best adaptation to different body forms. Protection Pro Shape soft protectors certified to Standard EN 1621.1/97 Ergonomics and Comfort Cowhide leather S1 fabric Microelastic elasticated inserts Inserts in elasticated fabric Double calf zip Jacket-trousers fastening system Sanitized lining Other Reflective inserts 2 pockets

When I ordered the pants I wore 34/30 jeans. Using that information in conjunction with the sizing guide worked best for me in choosing the correct size, 52. I was concerned about the knee armor not being in the correct place because of my short inseam but it seems perfect when on the bike.
When they arrived they were comfortably snug. Now that they've been broken in and I'm down to 32/30 jeans they feel perfect.
The pants are very comfortable, even in the 90-100 degree temperatures we've been having these past few weeks. I've paired these with the Dainese Greyhound jacket and they zip together fine.

I originally bought this to go with waterproof pants. I've only had it in one downpour for a short time but it kept me completely dry. The under-the-helmet hood insures you won't get water down your back.
The only gripe I have is I would have liked larger cuffs so putting on gloves is easier.

I bought the small and it fit my size 50 Dainese Greyhound perfectly. Sometimes I can feel the protector is there but it doesn't feel like it's in the way and most of the time I don't even notice it.
Luckily I haven't tested its protective ability so I can't comment about that.
