I tried on dozens of gloves and none were as comfortable as these. They feel totally smooth inside with no rubbing from internal seams, and the fingers are actually long enough for me. I normally wear a size medium (or large in Alpinestars) so I was surprised that these fit me in a size small. I like the 2 piece knuckle protectors better than a one piece style because they wrap around your knuckles better. The gauntlet is thin enough to wear inside my jacket sleeve but can still be adjusted to fit on the outside. One thing I didn't like was the gauntlet sleeve piece, with the Dainese logo on it, is made of a vinyl material and not leather. There are gloves that offer more protection but they are much more expensive and even more uncomfortable, so I found these to be perfect.

Rain suit kept me dry during a 100 mile highway drive in nonstop rain. The hood felt good under my helmet and kept water off my neck. My wrists got a little wet because I was wearing short gloves, I'll use long gauntlet style rain gloves next time. Size medium fit perfect over my size 40 (us) leather jacket. My pant size is around 34 x 30 and the pants also fit good, they may be too short for taller people. I wish it came with a small storage case so it would fit in my bike better, other than that it is great.

The AFX FX-17 was the best helmet I could find at a low price. The flat black color looks just as cool as other helmets that cost $100's more. The size chart was right on for me; a medium fit my 23" head. I first ordered one size larger like others recommended and it was too big. The shape is more round compared to my Arai Corsairs street helmet which is an intermediate oval shape, so it feels a bit tighter on the front and back of my head than on the sides. The inside padding seems a little thin but it is still comfortable. It would be nice if it was Snell approved, but for the price I can't complain.

Gloves provide great protection and feel more comfortable than the older versions of Alpinestars that I wore in the past. I usually have a problem with the fingers on gloves being too short but these fit perfect. I like the black color but I'm not too crazy about the other multi-colored ones. I think an all white or all red for example would look better.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I love these jeans! They are very comfortable and provide a top level of protection in a motorcycle jean. The low rise and distressed demin makes them look less generic than most other riding jeans. Even when I not riding I feel good wearing them. My only gripe is that they only come in one long 35" length. It would also be nice if they came with knee armour or at least had a pocket for it. Other than that they are perfect.
Yes, I recommend this product.

These gloves look cool and are very comfortable. However I don't think they provide much protection due to the very thin leather they are made of. They would be a great glove for something like mountain biking or scooter riding, but I wouldn't recommend them for any serious high speed motorcycling.
No, I do not recommend this product.

These pants were way too baggy for me. They had all the features I wanted like knee pads, kevlar, and stretch panels above the knees, but they felt too loose in the legs. The fabric also seemed like it was too thin and some of the stitching was a little sloppy.
No, I do not recommend this product.

These are perfect tires. They grip better than my old Pilot Powers and are supposed to last 20% longer too. I got around 10,000 miles out my old tires so these should technically last 12,000 miles. Not bad considering that I'm throwing 160hp to them.
