This jacket, despite the price is a really good investment if you want to have a very complete piece of design over you.
I am 88 chest, so that would put me into size 44 (Euro) but the one I bought was the 46, I was really scared because I thought it wouldn't fit me well, but since I have the liner in it all the time, then it fits awesome! (with only a tshirt under it).
The jacket weight 9lbs so its a bit heavy, but is not something you cannot carry comfortably, you forget that you have the jacket on once you get used to it (like in 3 hours after the first time with it on)
Im not able at this moment to rate the protection in it, because fortunately in this little time that I have had it I haven't had the opportunity to use it in a crash scenario, but at least the feeling of safety is huge... in fact it gives you a lot of confidence.
The finishing in everything is "top of the food chain", you can see the high quality in everything... well, mine has a little problem with the right handcuff button, every time I take of my jacket it has to unbutton! well... its a detail, but when you pay that amount of money for something, you wait for it to be perfect in every sense.
But talking about perfect... it doesn't let you freeze! it has a really good technology (I guess if all Dainese jackets have it) that lets you stay cool at all times, no matter if its warm or cold (In my country we don't have seasons, but the night here is incredibly cold, my city is 2600 meters high)
Its an awesome jacket, expensive but as long as it keeps you safe, cool and discrete but stylish, its perfect!
Yes, I recommend this product.

I´m a new user of this gloves (and newbie into moto world), I bought them because in my country Colombia, the traffic is (to put it in a way) Level: INFERNO, specially for motorcycle riders, and my hands are my main working tool... so I had to buy the best thing I could afford.
About the gloves:
First of all, keep in mind that you are getting into an armor (this gloves have kevlar, carbon fiber and the stingray protection in the arms is really hard) so your riding style changes as you put the gloves on, but not in a bad way... it is just different. One important point is the kangaroo leather... you break in fine in one day! I used them for like an hour and I felt fine with them after that.
The sizing of the gloves is true to fit in my experience, except for the thumb, it´s longer than mine (I´m latin american, so maybe it has something to do with that... maybe they do gloves for Center-European people), what is the problem there? that when you are going to use the turning lights, an unexperienced rider like me can get into a bit of trouble, but its a thing of getting used to it I guess.
The pinky and ring fingers union comes just fine, I only notice that when Im doing signs with my hands but it doesn't affect my riding at all!
About protection, I haven´t had the opportunity to test them in a crash yet (and I hope I never do) but a couple of days ago I went to play paintball, and you know how hard those balls hit... I used the gloves just for fun and I didn't even feel the shots in my hands! (later the problem was to clean the stingray, is not easy)
The airflow in the Titans is just incredible! (if you are in a warm city) ... my place of living turns really cold in the early morning and in the night, so when I ride at 60kmph (37.28 mph) or more, my hands get some more air than they need, so maybe Held could think of making non perforated gloves.
One thing I read in a previous review about this gloves is that the Titanium knuckle was not well glued, well... mine came fine and with the use I have given, nothing strange has happened.
The looks, for me it was the least important of aspects when taking a decision because I´m after protection, but still... you feel and look like Batman! (I bought the black ones, thinking about durability and behavior of the material) I think the knuckles help for that because they are kind of huge, and combining them with some good outfit, you get a lot of looks when riding, I imagine how would it be with the other colors!
I will write a review about the gloves when I have much more time with them so I can tell you about their behavior when they get old and all the insights that I get.
For now I´m really happy with my gloves, for me they were expensive... but I thought it this way:
How much are my hands worth?
