Great warm-weather leather jacket

Fitment is typical Dainese: they tend to run a bit snug, so if you prefer a looser jacket, order it one size bigger. I said it fit 'true to size' because the jackets are cut to fit snug. I wear a 42 regular coat (US sizing), and I got this jacket in a 54 because I wanted a bit more room across the chest. A 52 was tight under the arms and across the shoulders. I'm 6' tall, 180 lbs, athletic build. Length is good; I get frustrated with jackets that are cut really short.
I gave it four stars because it's expensive. Also the jacket needs pulls on the zippers you can use them with gloves. That's an annoyance on a jacket at this price.
Jacket vents really well; it's actually too well-vented to wear if the temp drops below 60 degrees unless you add long sleeves underneath.
I got white and it does scuff easily. That's just a fact of life with white leather so if the scuffs bother you don't get white or don't wear it with a backpack.
If you can afford this jacket you won't be disappointed.
Pros Comfortable, Fashionable
Cons Scuffs Easily
Yes, I recommend this product.

These gloves are worth the money. They fit great (very little break in) and the protection seems first-rate. (I have not crash tested them.)
They look good, and the black is subtle. If you want more show with your go get white or white/red. Gloves are easy to put on and take off, and the gauntlets are adjustable to the point that they will fit over my large-cuff leather jacket without issue.
My only issues were with fitment, but that's my hands being oddly shaped, not the glove. I have a size XL palm measurement, but short fingers. Price was very fair for a glove of this quality, and protection is good, so I gave it 5 stars.
If I had to do it over again I'd buy two pairs to check fit, then send one back. It's a minor hassle to carry the balance on your cc but it's worth it. Note that the glove will stretch a little as you break it in, so keep that in mind when you're choosing a size.
Pros Rugged, Fashionable, Comfortable
Yes, I recommend this product.

Expensive, but worth the money

I haven't tested this jacket in the rain, but I've had a chance to ride in cool, foggy weather in the morning then follow it up with a hot-weather ride in the afternoon. It performed superbly. I wore the full jacket in the fog/mist and was almost too warm, even at freeway speeds on a naked bike in 50 degree weather. The layers and insulation made it feel like I might as well have been sitting at my desk.
In the afternoon it got hot (85 degrees and sunny) I took all the liners out and opened up the vents and it was as comfortable as any textile jacket I've worn in hot weather.
A note on the styling: when I got this jacket my friends didn't even know it was a motorcycle jacket, so if you prefer an understated look then this is a good choice.
I went with a 4 star rating because of the price. It is expensive, but you get what you pay for.
Pros Fashionable, Comfortable
Yes, I recommend this product.
