If you take away nothing else: these have all the armor you really need for touring. They just don't look like it.
Fit:
42 seems to have been the right choice for my slightly-wider-than-9D feet. Loving that these aren't as narrow as so many of the Italian boots out there. They fit just wonderfully. Well, the right boot is a tad tight around the widest part of my foot. But it seems like the sort of thing that will be long-gone after break-in. All my favorite shoes/gloves started off the slightest bit tight.
Comfort:
Coming from basic Sidi riding shoes and non-proper (read: thin and unarmored) leather riding boots, these are a bit of an adjustment. They're quite thick all around due to the Gore-Tex membrane, thick leather and hidden steel shanks. My feet have a lot less "feel" than I'm used to. The bulkier boot is going to require that I adjust the shifter and more of the pressure and clicking nuances of the foot controls are M.I.A. But again, this is probably just a matter of getting used to the boots.
Heat:
They're definitely warmer than my thinner boots. But on 80-something degree days I'm not totally dying and sweat is at a minimum. I'm sure the slight extra heat is a small price to pay for the level of protection/windproofness/waterproofness the boots offer. Certainly they're a crapload more breathable than the Sidi Adventure Rain boots I tried for an afternoon. With those, I was sweating in air conditioning.
Armor:
Subtle steel shanks in all the right places with padding so you don't feel them. If you were to look at this boot and didn't know Daytona's reputation, you'd think they weren't really armored. Not true. There's a decent level of flex, enough to be comfortable. Good enough crush resistance for me. There's not any focus on torsion resistance though. But again, they're for touring not the track.
Overall Quality
I've honestly never seen a motorcycle boot with this level of refinement in material quality and construction. I'd compare the quality to the likes of Arc'teryx.

I bought the RSD Ronin jacket in smoke as my first moto jacket and I don't ride anywhere without it. With it's old-school styling that points to cafe racer culture, its perfect pocket placement for a balance of utility and streamlined looks, the thick full-grain leather, and the armor option (a no brainer), this jacket will have you dressed for the ride as much as the slide. The cowhide used has such a unique quality to it: like it was distressed by life, not by some designer in a studio. Scratches only make it look better.
What I love:
The full-grain leather protects while the perfs allow for effective airflow. One of the inner pockets is the exact size of my iPhone. The "smoke" color looks like a cream colored jacket would after rolling in some coal - really beautiful. Fits snug with just enough room for a base layer for cooler days.
Removable armor means you can still get use from the jacket after riding season is over. Armor is pretty comfortable, considering that it's armor.
What I don't love:
The armor seems to shift around in its pockets slightly; not sure if they will "set in" over time. The sleeves are a great length for arms-forward riding, but a bit long when off the bike. Also, the zippers on the sleeves don't want to stay shut all the way.
