Fits well over my riding gear and folds up well for storage in the little pouch. Haven't tested it in real heavy rain yet, but it looks like it will be solid.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I'm generally pleased with these socks, but I wish they'd come up higher on my legs. I didn't want the knee-length ones, but these are just about two inches too short to really stay up without slipping down.

As a new rider, I was a bit concerned about riding with a backpack. The load balance is very good, and I could hardly tell I was wearing a backpack. Very little weight on shoulders and generally comfortable on an almost two-hour ride.

 Dainese Portland 2 Textile Jacket
Dainese Portland 2 Textile Jacket
Sports design and safety matched with elevated comfort levels are the concepts at the heart of the new Portland 2 jacket developed for use in the warmer months thanks to the air inlets in Boomerang mesh and the built-in Shield Air G2 back protector, which together with the removable composite protectors ensures safety in case of fall. The ergonomic design is the result of construction in stretch Mugello fabric that guarantees a constantly tight fit and the possibility to fasten the jacket to the pants by zipper. The liner has been provided with silver ion treatment to keep hygiene levels constantly high. Protection From Shock Removable composite protectors certified to EN 1621.1/97 Standard. Includes Shield Air G2 back protector certified to EN 1621.2/2003 Standard(Lev. 1). Abrasion And Tear Resistance Mugello fabric. Boomerang mesh inserts. Ergonomics Adjustment strap on neck. Wrist adjustement. Waist adjustment. Jacket-trousers fastening system. Temperature Regulation Nanofeel liner with Silver ion treatment. Air vents. External fabric with water resistance treatment. Other Features Reflective inserts. 2 outside pockets. Internal pocket. NOTE Dainese made a change in production the zippers / buttons as pictured are red anodized. However, when the jacket went into production it was produced with black zippers / button pulls, so the pictures / video are inaccurate in this respect.

Perfect jacket for warmer temps, with very good protection features. I'm 5'6" with a 38" chest, 30" waist, and ended up with the size 46 (after returning a 48 that was too bulky).

These are great gloves that offer good protection and quality. It took a few rides to break them in, but I'm very pleased with them.
