This is a very good jacket for cool to moderate temperature ranges, but it still gets quite hot. I bought the black jacket, and the hi-viz is probably better. Although, most of the heat issue is from the poor ventilation.
The length of the jacket is just about perfect, it's not as long as some of the other 3/4 jackets I've tried on, but it was long enough. It stays on my waist in a riding position and doesn't bunch up too much in front when I lean forward. The sleeves are a good length for riding, which does make them somewhat awkward when you're not riding. Overall the fit was very good.
With that said, it's a great jacket in every other way. The waterproofing worked very well for me (only 1 storm). Little touches like the magnet in the collar speak to a high level of craftsmanship.

I would not be as happy with these pants, if I had paid full MSRP. The high waist fit is very comfortable when riding, but is not well suited for walking around off the bike. The pants have very little airflow, but are made from a breathable material so it mostly balances out.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Vents are ok, but this helmet still fogs up significantly. I'll be adding some kind of aftermarket solution for that. Helmet is quite comfortable for long days and the fogging is no longer an issue after the helmet warms up.
Yes, I recommend this product.
