I had a RS Taichi undersuit top that needed to be retired so I gave this a go. Does what you need it to do - keeps you cool and comfortable under your leather suit at the track all day. I would experience some chaffing with my RS Taichi on the knees and elbows, but none of that happens with this shirt.
The only warning is to watch velcro around this shirt as it pulls on the threads pretty easily.
Great undershirt, highly recommended.

Forcefield Base Layer Shirt Inspired by Geothermic Phenomena observed on Earth the Forcefield Base Layer Shirt has been created using BeCool the first polyamide fibre with integrated airflow control a function that maintains body temperature during sports and leisure activities. Through a four chanelled thread BeCool has a greater diffusive area than standard thread, upto three times greater than cotton, which allows it to act like a fan forcing the skins hot and humid air towards the outer layer of the fabric while allowing cool and dry air to circulate from the outside into the surface of the skin. It is further enhanced by its softness, lightness and silky touch creating a cool freshness to the skin combined with seamless and flat seam technology to ensure that the fabric does not rub or chaff during activity. The Forcefield Base Layer also has an antibacterial element built within to help maintain freshness. Features BeCool Construction Fibre acts like a fan Antibacterial Flat seam construction Unisex sizing Next to skin tailored fit Machine washable Reinforced panels

Purchased this for my wife's track use under her suit. 'm familiar with Forcefield products and this looked worth a try. It appears to run slightly smaller than the advertised sizes. Revzilla was very helpful in the return process to go a size up.
I have Dianese and RS Taichi underlayers and this looks to be equivalent to those. My wife has yet to take it to the track to verify air flow but the fit is comfortable under her suit. Looking forward to track testing it.

I have the RevIt race socks and these are similar in fit, style, and comfort to those. These appear to be well made and given it's Dainese I'm expecting them to last awhile. Well worth the purchase.

Ordered these bags for my K1200RS instead of using the BMW system panniers. The bags exude quality with the carbon fiber like finish and look almost stock when installed. I was able to route much of the install under the seat for an OEM look. The install took about 45 minutes, as I didn't just sling them over the passenger seat. Would have been an easier install that way, but IMO they look better when the straps are hidden.

First Impressions:
I have multiple Dainese track/street related items and I have to admit I was mildly disappointed by these boots. There is nothing wrong with them per se, but I was expecting these to be a little more track focused in regards to protection. They do look good and match my wife's suit very well.
Protection:
The boot appears adequate for protection. It has lateral ankle flex which could be concerning under certain types of crashes. The slider is a type of plastic so after a few good toes slides you might be feeling the asphalt touching your toes. Overall, the boot looks to be more street orientated than track orientated.
Fit and Comfort:
As usual to Dainese, finish was really good. Unusually fit was larger than expected. My wife had to go about 2 sizes down from the recommended chart (38 from 40) to get them to fit. Kudos to Revzilla for doing a great job at assisting us to get the right size. Even at 38 they are a touch large, but given she'll have thick socks on for track use and that a 37 would be too tight these will work fine. Wife gave thumbs up to comfort. Not a boot you would walk around in but is comfortable for riding/track use.
Nutshell:
It's relatively difficult to find women's track related gear so it's good to see women's focused gear/boots coming out. While these could have been a little more track focused in regards to protection they look nice, are comfortable to wear on the bike, and would work well for my wife at her current level of expertise on the track. I'll look into more protective boots as she progresses.
Yes, I recommend this product.

The other reviews (and from the Web) shown + sale price sold me on the suit and they were right on.
I got the white/red one and some items I noticed:
1) Fit is aggressive/athletic. The suit fits me like a glove everywhere - almost custom-like fit. It appears made for athletic/thin builds - not much extra room if someone is stocky. I'm 5'10", 160# - athletic build.
If you are pairing a back protector with it ensure you step up one size. I'm 5'10", 160# - athletic build. A 48 fit snug w/o protector (T-Pro Sub 4), had to go up a size to a 50 to fit the back protector in. If you have a stocky build you may want to add another size up.
2) Awesome looking. Just by looking at it you can tell it was well made - stitching, armor, etc. all looks like thought was put into the construction.
3) Comfortable. Unfortunately it's Winter so no track time yet, but I've been wearing it around the house to break it in and it's comfortable and breathable. I can't wait to get it to the track.
Yes, I recommend this product.

A little bulky, but very warm. Went riding on a 40s day and my hands were almost sweating. Looking forward to keeping hands warm on colder days.
These seem to fit a .5 size up from usual Rev'IT gloves. I'm ok with the loose fit as I'll wear a hand liner with gloves on really cold days.
Yes, I recommend this product.
