Great product. Both DOT and Snell approved. Nice fit. Easy to snap out the lining, wash, and replace. The visor can be challenging to take on and off but the fit is secure and air tight. I recommend this helmet.

Nice looking. The Hi-viz was a great choice. The only con is the legs are too long for the average 5'4" woman. However, this height or taller is do-able. I am happy with my purchase.
Yes, I recommend this product.

You know that you are getting quality when you buy a Dianese product and this jacket is an excellent fit. The perforation is excellent and I anticipate this jacket being as cool flowing as a leather jacket can be with great protection.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Dainese New Drake Air Textile Pants Drake pants will surely interest anyone who loves to ride his or her bike especially in the warmer months without wearing a suit or leather pants in order to obtain the protection required. These previously contrasting needs have now been perfectly reconciled by Drake fabric pants. Ample air vents in fretted fabric with closing on the thighs permit fresh air to enter during riding for cooling relief on even the hottest days. When temperatures begin to drop, the air vents can be closed. Safety is guaranteed by removable composite protections in the knee and shins, while extra-strength Cordura 750 fabric offers protection in case of fall. The elastic inserts in the knee optimize the wearability of the article, which is equally suited to metropolitan motorcycle use. Features Removable composite protectors. Cordura fabric 750. Suretta fabric. Perforated fabric. Insert in elasticated fabric. Soft inserts. Calf zip. Jacket-trousers fastening system. Adjustable waist. Sanitized lining.

I bought these pants for summer use. I wanted more protection than just wearing jeans. So far I have only ridden in 70 degree weather and I am finding them to be quite warm. I don't think they would be good for weather over 80 degrees but they are better protection than jeans. The padding and armor are all in the right high impact areas. I had to drop two sizes but then they fit great. From 34 down to 28 and these fit perfectly. Nice adjustable waist.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought this because it was a great price and I wanted to try D30 back protection. It fits well in my Dainese Racing Perforated Leather Jacket. It is a little on the heavy side. I would recommend this product.

PROS:
I really like this jacket. This is my second Joe Rocket jacket (my first was all mesh) and it fits pretty good. I am a more than a curvy woman with what I believe is referred to as a donkey-booty. With this type of back-end the jacket does ride up just a bit and the back zippers at the hips are open. The mid section is a little looser than say a corset might be, which is slimming. I don't have thin arms but jacket fits there like a glove going right up under the arm-pit, but not tight nor is it uncomfortable. The arm movement is great with the expansion gusset located behind/below each shoulder.
CONS:
The elbow and spine pads are thin and flimsy. I took them out and put mine in from my other Joe Rocket jacket, which fit great. The neck opening is pretty large. As voluptuous as I am in other places, I do have I do not have a thick neck. However, a nice wooly scarf took up the space and in the summer I think I will appreciate the extra air flow. I did not like the liner as it doesn't really have much give, making it feel restricting.
RESULT:
So, I took it for a ride. My arm extension felt great, the liner was helpful (I just did not zipper it). It was 50 degrees with fair winds. I was not cold at all. I felt overall comfy, protected, and dam-it, kinda sexy. I rock this jacket!
Yes, I recommend this product.
