When I first put it on I was blown away on how tailored it felt, such an excellent fit from the get go. The air flow is excellent on hot days and with a base layer I could drive to work at 5am no problem. Just treat it gently as when hit my shoulder against a pull in the garage the shoulder guards scratch easily but then again adds to the overall badass look.

Don't buy this jacket....Unless you want to ooze manliness, drip with stylish appeal, cause woman's underwear to spontaneously combust, and feel like your wrapped in the protection of a golden grizzly bear.
Great jacket, excellent fit and design. I can wear it off and on the bike. Goes really well with the Icon Truant boot (brown),
I'm 6'1 185 42 Chest and Large is perfect.

I very much wish I had found these sooner. I was using Run with Bull Speed and Strength Jeans, but they made me look like a Enimem wanna be, just baggy, though they served as a good over pant.
I'm 6'1 180 athletic build my waist is 33, but after the review I went with a 32, perfect fit! Even if your a 34 I would recommend a 32 they will break in.
The Jeans, you can't tell them apart from my designer jeans period. You would have to your head a foot away from my crotch to notice the color matched stitching over the knee areas, excellent job Drayko!
The feel, well, they feel like you got every cent you paid. Smooth, comfortable, and tough.
Riding, excellent, they are the perfect length, and run just a hair long off the bike, but when your on it, PEFECT height. I'm not showing any leg, sorry ladies.
Temp, door swings both ways, I get up and on the round around 5am, not cold, come home around 5pm not hot. For the mid day rides I'm very comfortable. I'll drop back here when the temps get above 85 here, but I'm sure the jeans will still be my pants of choice even as temps get up to 90.
Buy them, and you'll have zero regrets. I even wore them all day to break them in (which was unnecessary) and I didn't feel like I had heavy motorcycle jeans on and I forgot I was wearing them!
Heads up, wheels down.

Matches the bike well and the HUGE plus is I am not pulling over to change lenses, nor do I have to carry a spare one, or carry sunglasses. I am usually out of the house around 5am before sunrise and home during sunset so this helmet is solid gold for me.

I got these gloves for the cold morning rides to school/work. Do they stop the wind yes, do they keep your hands warm, no. Any temp under 50 and your hands will be cold. Anything above that and you can't feel the wind at all.
So while they do what they are called, don't be like me and try to get them for cold weather and wind protection.

I'm 6'1 185lb athletic build, forgot my chest size, but I ordered a 50, it was a little snug, since my arms are about 24 inches in length. Went to a 54 perfect fit! Now this jacket does exactly what its advertised to do, FLOW AIR. I can't imagine getting hot in this at all, so I'm glad to have it come summer time here in southern California.
Only reason I gave it a average on protection, you have to buy the back pad, which is another $89.
And the average on features, well it only has two pockets, which isn't bad, but the zippers are just begging to be snapped like twigs. The Main zipper is solid, just the two pocket ones are a little puny.
Overall VERY WORTH your $.

The Helmet is solid. Very comfortable, everything was as described in the video. For around town the vents are perfect, I'm rarely hot. On the free way I'll close a couple of them for noise reduction and viola, smooth sailing.

That's how much I love these! I went from walking around in my engineer style boots feeling like I was ducking hunting all day to slapping these Jupiter 2's on BOOM! Like I put on an old pair of my favorite shoes. The feel is solid, I feel like even though its a half boot per se, I'll still keep my feet attached in a fall. The ankle support is firm, the shift points are rock solid, the sole is firm as well yet comfortable. If you can't tell already I like my shoes to have zero wiggle room besides my toes (which these do). I like sound structural support and these offer it perfectly.
Bonus is they look great! When I'm wearing jeans or pants you have no clue I have a riding shoe on, unless you inspect closely and see the shift point.
Don't be scares off by the lace eyelets look either, I know at first glance they look like staples on the shoe holding the laces together. This isn't the case in person, they tuck cleanly under the shoe, lace up firmly, and are built tough.
Toe and Heel box are very well reinforced.
I don't see myself owning anything different after these.
