The AGV Sport perforated Willow pants are an outstanding value for the cost- they felt almost broken in right out of the box, and they're very comfortable.
I'm 6'2" tall with a fairly narrow (31") waist- I ordered a pair in size 34 to get a little extra length (I have a 34" inseam, and I wanted to make sure the knee armor seated properly- it does)- they're a bit loose, but they're snug enough that I wouldn't go to a size 32 (though it would seem they're pretty true to the size chart)- I might wear them over padded shorts sometimes, so I'm ok with a little extra room.
Unfortunately the zipper isn't compatible with my Dainese jacket (though it works fine with my old Fieldsheer jacket), but the pants come with both halves of the zipper so I will have a tailor sew it into my jacket so I can connect them.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Dainese gear has a much-deserved reputation for quality, and the Rebel jacket is no exception- it's nice to have some style to go along with excellent protection- while it definitely has some 'poser value', the fact it doesn't have the Dainese name plastered across the chest makes it subtle in a cool way.
The armor at the elbows/forearms and shoulders isn't at all obtrusive and you almost don't know it's there- a Forcefield back protector fits well in the pocket (you will need to buy a back protector- it would be great if Dainese supplied one, but they don't, and it's really a necessary item, so be prepared to shell out up to $100 for a good one that is the right size and shape).
I'm 6'2"/190lbs with a 41.5" chest and 31" waist- I went with a size 54 (US 44) as I need the width at the shoulders- it's a bit loose at the waist, but there are adjustable Velcro straps- it's snug without being tight, and I still have room for a thorax protector- I would say the Rebel runs pretty true to size, and it wasn't as much of a slim cut as I expected (at least with the liner removed)- I'm a tough fit in off-the-rack gear, and I'm very happy with it.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The Supertech R boots are extremely light and comfortable, even with the internal brace- it's very surprising that a boot with so many safety features can feel so good off the bike as well as on it.
Note that they seem to run a half-size large (which many reviews around the net have stated)- I've always worn a US size 12 (Euro 47)- I bought a pair of these in US size 11.5 (Euro 46) and they fit perfectly.
Yes, I recommend this product.
