I really love and highly recommend this jacket. I hesitate to give it 5s for everything because there are tiny features that I would nitpick, but in general I don't think you could get more for your dollar.
Style: This jacket looks great. Very classic look; tapered to fit a woman's body but long enough to give good protection and straight enough that it doesn't make my hips look weird. I really hate those tiny little women's jackets that end at the waist or flare out weird - this jacket is neither of those. My only qualm is that being all leather with no elastic panels, the jacket looks a big baggy when I don't layer underneath (I probably could have sized down but it would have been tight with a sweater on). I knew what I was getting into, though, and in general it looks and feels great. The sleeves are long on me, but I have to size by my broad shoulders, so your mileage may vary.
Comfort - solid all around. No qualms, this is a very comfy jacket, and it's getting comfier as I break it in.
Protection and durability - This thing is heavy duty, without being too bulky and awkward. Nice armor in the elbows and shoulders without being too stiff - I can wear this jacket around town after riding without feeling weird. I take a point off because the armor doesn't seem as heavy-duty as in my textile jacket, but you do get an improvement in style. I feel safe in this jacket.
Air flow - very comfy for an all-leather jacket. It will probably get hot in the summer, but for spring/winter/fall it's pretty great. I get a bit too much air through the neck, but that's fixed with a bandana (and looks good too)
Features - what you would expect in a standard leather jacket. Two inside pockets, two outside pockets, zippers and buckles in the right places. This isn't a pockets-everywhere touring jacket, but you get a more classic look. Just know that there is no zip open/closed ventilation (I haven't missed it yet). The liner is a really nice touch.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I'm a big fan of these boots. Here's the breakdown:
Pros:
- Armored ankle and shin
- Easy on and off with velcro and zipper
- Definitely waterproof - as a Seattle rider I've had no problems with the wet so far
- Super comfy, both on the bike and off
- Great price and really excellent value
- Love that revzilla return/exchange policy! The first pair I ordered were too big, but it was really easy to exchange.
Cons:
- The velcro is a little scratchy on my calf if my socks don't come up all the way
- If the temperature dips below 40, you'll need to double up on socks. This could be a feature, not a bug though: they'll be comfy in the summer too
- They run a bit large and the revzilla page does not list the euro sizes. I'm usually a euro 39/US 8 - the US 8 for these corresponds to a euro 40 and were too big on me; the US 7/euro 39 was a great fit. I'd recommend looking up the euro sizes or choosing a size down.
Really great all around boot! I definitely recommend.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Pretty great! I was hoping that these would be a solid four-season glove, but they're too thin to stand up to temperatures below 40. Otherwise, though, I'm a fan. They're super comfy, average fit (I would say I have "average" sized hands and I'm a medium), and I love that they're long enough to go over the cuffs of my jacket. Having the velcro on the wrist plus bungee cord on the cuff is great, and super easy to put on. With a thing liner glove underneath, I'm hoping to use them all year. The only thing I would add is armor on the knuckles, but for the price these are a great deal.
Yes, I recommend this product.
