First, about the sizing: I normally wear 33x30 jeans, sometimes 34x30 depending on brand. Based on other review here which say that the jeans run large, I ordered the size 32. Sure enough, that was the right choice. They also have a bit of stretch (lycra), so this helps. So heed this advice if you want to order some.
The jeans look very "normal" with no obvious motorcycling features. The kevlar lining is sewn in with blue thread (on the blue jeans) and so you don't have a bunch of stitching giving away that there is something unusual going on.
The only two differences from most jeans are that the front pockets are pretty shallow, and the waist is just a touch higher (which is actually okay for motorcycling). You'll have to have them hemmed to length.

I've been using the MOAB jacket for about a year now, in temperatures from the 40's through to the 90's (F). Normally, I wear the jacket in warmer weather since I have a nice leather jacket for cool days. However, with the thermal and/or rain liner in the Moab, you have a wide range of conditions that you will be comfortable in.
BY FAR this is the best jacket I've ever used when the temperatures crawl into the 80's and 90's. I'm perfectly comfortable in anywhere from 60-90 degree weather using just the mesh jacket with no liners. Venting, obviously, is excellent.
The fit is good for me, with no binding in the arms/elbows (I have muscular arms and this is sometimes a problem with other jackets). I haven't had a need to test it in the rain, but with only a liner it wouldn't be my main choice for pure "rain gear". I'm sure it will do in a pinch, though.
I can't really comment on how well the jacket would hold up in a crash. It seems sturdy enough, but I don't know if the seams or mesh would tear. But every piece of gear is a compromise in some way, and the hot weather comfort of this jacket ensures you will actually wear it when the temps get hot, so that's a type of safety in and of itself.
Overall, I'm very happy with the purchase for my needs.
