This is my first Dainese purchase, and it lives up to their reputation for fit and style. It fits right-on, so make sure you get your measurements correct (I had to exchange a 52 for a 50 and could tell the difference in sizes), and the armor will sit just right. Works well with Wave G back protector, if you decide to.
The sleeves, shoulders, and back are well-tailored for a comfortable fit in an upright riding position. I haven't tested the waterproof liner in the rain, but it works fine as a windbreaker down to about 50 F (imo). Versatile, comfy, looks good.
I'd like to have a small cell phone pocket inside the waterproof liner, but the lack of one definitely isn't a dealbreaker.

This glove was light and flexible with seemingly good protection. Unfortunately, the interior seams running along the thumbs were very uncomfortable and irritating. It would be a good glove if the vendor could smooth out the interior, but I had to return it.

These gloves do a good job of keeping out the cold, wind, and rain. The Outlast is a good thermal insulator down to the low 30s (F) and is even comfortable up to the low 70s (F). Gore Tex and the big gauntlet keep the water out well.
They're a little light on crash protection, although they do have a hard palm slider where it counts.
They also run a little small. My hand measures out for a size 10, but I needed a size 11 (to make enough room for my fingers and make sure the slider sits on the right part of the palm). They take a few days to break in, but once they do they're very comfy.
And you kinda look like Darth Vader with these gloves.

I love the look and style of this jacket. The cut is slimmer (as the video review says) and comfortable. The outer fabric is lighter-weight, and the accents are muted, so it doesn't look entirely like a bike jacket.
The waterproofing works well. I expect the thermal insulation works fine (my Firstgear HT pants are plenty warm), but the temp here doesn't get cooler than low 30s (F). Vents let plenty of air through when it's warm-ish, and the jacket is a good windbreaker with vents closed and liner removed.
The armor could be improved. The adjustable pockets are nice but necessary, as the factory armor is a little stiff and bulky. You can get it comfortable by jostling the pads around once you get the jacket on, but would be nice if you didn't have to. Also with the liner removed, the armor pockets catch on my sleeves when putting on the jacket.
