Had the GP PLUS and this jacket blows it away. Gp was a nice jacket but more relaxed this is a little more fitted. Everything you see in the video is spot on. I am 5'10" 145 and size 50eur 40us fits perfect. I also added the bio back protector and the jacket still fits the same. As for all the riding details I won't know for a few weeks. The wrists and neck are very comfortable. If I had to pick one con it would be the outer pockets are a little hard to close but I'm sure once broken in they will be fine. Literally the only thing I noticed everything else is pretty much flawless. Hope this helps
Yes, I recommend this product.

Can feel it in the jacket but not annoying at all. And much better than the foam

I wear a size 9.5 in nikes so I ordered the 43. They fit a tiny bit large but a size smaller would of definitely been too small so I just threw in a pair of gel soles and they fit much better. Only thing I guess I can complain about is I wish u could tighten them down a little more. The strap really doesn't do much but other than that everything in the video is true and these are great boots

I usually wear a large but I am a medium in these. They are leather so obviously need a break in period(which is pretty fast). For the price these are great street gloves and just the one wrist strap is plenty.
