I continue to be surprised by how well thought out and made these pants are. There are reinforcements in high-use areas, dampening fabrics to reduce vibration, leather to provide grip, reflective panels to enhance visibility, pockets, zippable air vents, built-in (and removable) armor on the hips, abrasion resistance and armor in the knees, 3-stage closure...
I have gone on several-hour rides with no discomfort at all on a stock seat.
I very highly recommend these pants, and the price is spectacular for all the features.
For added visibility, I got the lightest color available. I really like how they look as well as an added bonus.

Yes, I recommend this product.

The protection offered by the jacket seems excellent overall, but by far the most frustrating thing about it is that the back panel unzips itself during every ride. The chest zipper is lockable, but the zipper that holds the back panel on is not. During a ride, it zips itself 2/3 of the way open to where it is flopping around on my back by the time I'm done. This will certainly make it worthless in a crash (and I wouldn't be surprised if it falls off onto the road before I find a good way to seal it).
The fit is flexible, but despite all the mesh, I get noticably hotter wearing it. The airflow could certainly be better.
Considering the multitude of other options available, I find it hard to recommend this.
