Ridden about 800 miles with the jacket so far. We've had some 100 degree code red air days here in the DC area but once the bike is moving, this jacket flows air very well. You can actually feel the air coming thru the mesh material under the arms. Very comfortable, fits very nicely, looks awesome. I had to buy one size larger than my usual Euro jacket size because the arms and the jacket length were too short.
Doesn't come with the back protector, which was a little disappointing considering the price tag (maybe this is the same for all Dainese products, I'm not sure). Just ordered the Dainese Wave G2 back protector to add to the jacket.

After about an hour of wearing them, flexing/extending fingers/wrists, they are now a perfect fit. Comfortable, movement free enough for bike operation. Velcro strap on the wrist and on the gauntlet for extra snug fitment.

Puma 1000 v3 Boots The 1000v3 boot was developed with the help of Grand Prix riders and is a pro-level boot suited for any kind of road-racing activity due to its improved safety components. Features Intelligent Safety The Ghost Doctor protection device has been designed after the medically defined angles of no return, beyond which you would suffer from serious ankle injury. It limits the movement range in all four directions and becomes active when the ankle reaches a dangerous angle, making it an intelligent protection device thats there only when you need it most Increased Protection The Exo Low has a 360 degree cockpit construction that wraps under the heel, maximizing stability and increasing lateral impact protection Improved Cushioning A small cushioning structure is built into the lower portion of the Exo Low to provide vertical impact protection in the event of a high-speed crash The third generation 1000v3 benefits from ongoing evolutional change. The 1000v3 features flexible nylon toe sliders, a Bifit footbed with cut outs to improve flexibility in the forefoot, more flexible lining for easy step in/out, and modifications to the exo-low and calf protector to make the boot more able to withstand the rigors of competition

Brand new rider here, CBR250R.
Fitment-- I've been a hardcore Puma shoe buyer since high school so I've had about 15 pairs of Pumas. I got my usual perfect fit Puma shoe size (41) and it was extremely tight on my toes due to it being narrower than usual in the front. Had to exchange for size 42.
Only put 50 miles on the bike so far but after riding the 50 miles and walking around with the boots on for about 6 hours, I have to say that they are awesome.
While riding, I had good sensation through both the top of the boot, and through the sole. Never felt disconnected or numb to what was outside of the boot.
Ankle mobility doesn't feel restricted at all, although you might expect it with the ghost doctor.
When walking, your heel will hit the ground slightly earlier than you would expect with natural walking, but it isn't an impediment in the least. Walking naturally is (surprisingly) not only possible, but easy with the boot on. Not awkward at all.
The toe slider on my left boot was loose and not flush on the boot but easily removed, reset, and retightened.
Takes a good 3-4 minutes to properly and fully put the boots on, but I guess that should be expected.
There's also a bar on here for airflow...I have no complaints as far as airflow goes, but I have notoriously cold feet anyway so I don't think I'm the best judge of this.
