The Dainese TRQ race out boots are by far the best boots in its price range. It offers ankle protection is that is far above what are offered by Sidi or Alpinestars. For $300, you are getting a boot that has the ankle protection that is only available on boots that cost $100 more.
Airflow is also decent. However, it probably isn't as good as the Sidi boots that have dedicated venting systems. The perforation is doing its job pretty well, but your feet will still get very hot when you are idling in traffic. The perforation will let water into your feet. So the air out will be a summer/spring/fall boots. If you ride in the wet, I suggest the non-perforated or the goretex version. The perforation does its job, but don't expect them to make a significant difference when you are idling in traffic.
These boots are extremely stylish. You can wear them under your jeans and they look very subtle. The Dainese TRQ race out boots are probably the one of the slimmest motorcycle boots available. If you want to wear your boots under jeans, these are the boots to get. I cannot wear my Sidi (or other similarly sized boots) boots under jeans because they are simply too big. The Dainese boots are extremely slim.
Finally, the size of these boots is on the smaller size. I went one size up because I have slightly wider feet than most people. If you know you have wider feet, you must go at least one US size up. If you go one US size bigger, you will find your boot being slightly too long, but that shouldn't be an issue because these boots are small to begin with. You can also wear socks to micro adjust the fitting to your feet.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The SF jacket is made with a particularly soft and lightweight type of cowhide and features removable protections in composite material, elasticized inserts in the chest and shoulders that permit more natural movements, and a zippered jacket-pants coupling system. The interior features the new 3D Bubble liner with the revolutionary ideal microclimate concept with a completely perforated structure that creates a cushion of air between the rider s body and the jacket that keeps temperatures down when things get hot and keeps all the body s warmth inside when the weather gets cold. Removable homologated composite protectors 3D-Bubble liner with air chambers D-Skin Leather Jacket-pants fastening system Adjustable side fastener Inserts in stretch fabric Reflecting inserts Pocket for Wave G. back protector

The SF Leather jacket is probably one of the cleanest and most stylish jacket from Dainese. It doesn't have large Dainese writte on it, but the reflective Dainese logos are a nice touch. You can wear this with jeansm boots and racing gauntlets while riding a Yamaha R1 or you can wear this on a Goldwing. Because of its minimalist design, you can wear this with any bike you ride. You can also take out the armor and wear it as your normal jacket.
Size is true to your usual suit size in US inches. Bang for the buck is amazing because for under $600, you get D-Skin leather, which is noticeably more supple than your regular leather. The 3D Bubble liner also keeps you warm. But I recommend wearing a dedicated summer base layer under this to keep you cool.
There is practically no airflow with this jacket, but the 3D bubble liner will keep you relatively cool. But don't expect you will not feel hot inside this jacket. This is a black leather jacket, so even with the buble liner you will still feel hot when you are idling in traffic.
My only gripe of this jacket is that it doesn't have a front chest protector pocket that most Dainese jackets have. I would also prefer the back protector pocket to be a little bigger. The back protector pocket in this jacket will only fit a Dainese Wave G back protector. So if you want additional protection, you will have to buy a standalone back and chest protector.
Finally, the fit of this Dainese jacket is more stylish than all the other jackets I have worn. Compared to other jackets of the same sizes, this jacket is a little slimmer. So take that into consideration when you order yours.
Yes, I recommend this product.

This product may be expensive, but it really works. It keeps your body cool while you're wearing your heavy leather gears. You can't compare this item with the under armor because this is made for racing gears and not sports equipment. Though they have similar functions, they serve different purposes and are designed with come rely different material and fabrics.
After putting the shirt on I feel an immediate drop in body temperature. The difference is quite noticeable.
While people feel that this shirt is same as the under armor. However this item is made in Italy whereas the under armor is made in third world countries.
The compression fit of this item is great. It feels tight, but not uncomfortably so. You wouldn't feel queasy wearing this shirt after a heavy meal. An under armor will surely work, but this is more suitable for motorcycle application.
I really recommend this product if you ride a lot in full leather gear in hot summer.
