The G9 is the first comms gear that I have owned or used, so I don't really have a good comparison.
I found them easy to install and the website is awesome. Don't worry with the instruction manual. The Cardo website has an animated instruction manual. So, you press what you want to do (e.g. turn on radio) and an animated picture shows you how to do it. It's a nice (and much appreciated) touch.
I ride a Ducati 1100S with termi pipes. It is a little loud. I can hear the music (either through the MP3 or FM radio) clear enough and still hear the bike behind it. I love it. However, I find communicating through the phone or network at speed (e.g. over 80 km/h) difficult. I just can't hear the other person. But, they can hear me (either on the phone or another G9)...so it is the bike more than the gear. At slower, street riding, say less than 50 km/h, noise is no longer a problem.
At times, the G9 will just decide to switch off the radio or MP3 music for no particular reason. This is a nuisance more than a real problem with the device.
The voice commands are also a little finicky.
Overall, I'm happy with the purchase and would recommend the G9.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The D6 kelvar jean is pretty typical of what you would expect from Dainese. It is good looking, offers good protection and is expensive.
I would recommend it; but would also understand why folk would decide to go with a less expensive choice.
Only thing is...watch out for the size. They run a little big. In normal street jeans, I normally wear a size 34 and sometimes a 33 (brand depending). Here, after reading other reviews, I went with a size 32 and these fit well. Go a size down.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I have been wearing another brand of glove - which were roughly in the same price range - for many years. I decided to get a new pair and went with Dianese because I have had really positive experiences with some of their other products.
The Scythe gloves are SO much better than my old gloves. They offer more protection, but are also lighter and more malleable. They allow greater movement in your fingers and are more sensitive...so connect you better to the bike.
They also look great.
Furthermore, unlike many Dianese products, I also think they are reasonable value.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The SSC Delta riding shoe is good looking and comfortable. It's sizing seems to be true fit. I normally wear a 43 shoe (size 10 US) and the Delta fit me perfectly.
Like all Dainese products it is good looking, offers great protection (relative to other riding shoes...but not compared to boots) and is comfortable. It is more expensive than its competitors, but you get what you pay for...
There aren't all that many unique or novel features. It is just a high quality, good looking and comfortable riding shoe. I'll recommend it to anyone.
Yes, I recommend this product.
