I was looking for a pair of black leather gloves with good protection that would last. So far, these check the first two boxes. Hard to say about the longevity, but if past experiences with Rukka are any indicator, they should last several years.
The leather is noticeably thicker and softer than the more plasticy leather from some other brands. These are the first gloves I've had with palm sliders. I was a little worried about that at first, but they totally disappear once on the bike. I hope to never have to try them out!
The fit is good around the hand, but the fingers are a little long even compared to other Rukka gloves. After a few rides in the rain I'm sure that will change...
Yes, I recommend this product.

Very nice pants, especially for the price! The only reason I didn't rate them 5 stars is due to lack of armor. The knee armor is pretty poor in most pants, but this might as well be non-existent. No big deal as there is plenty of room for much better knee armor under the pants.
The fit is pretty baggy, which is great for mobility. Like most Klim products, the pants run small by about a size. I'm a 36 in all my jeans and some other riding pants (Olympia), but got a 38 based on prior experience and they fit perfectly in the waist.
They flow a huge amount of air.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I tested these pants during a 9 hour long dual sport ride in the rain and 50 degree temps. They were plenty warm with light weight long underwear underneath.
My legs were 100% dry at the end of the day. No pooling of water at the crotch. No leaking at the vent zippers. Without a doubt the most waterproof pants I've ever owned.
My only complaint is you can't put on your boot and then put on the pants. Well, maybe *you* can, but my size 13's would not go through.
They do run small though. I wear a 36 in street clothes, but knew from previous experience that I'd need a 38 in Klim sizes, so you might want to order one size larger.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Only had the Jacket for a week, so I can't comment on long term durability.
I did test it on an all day ride in the rain and 50 degree temps. The jacket and matching pants kept me totally dry from 8:00am until 5:00pm. The other guys on the ride were borderline hypothermic since they were totally soaked.
My only big complaint is that the cuffs do not open large enough to get a thick glove under them. Also, the storm flap over the main zipper could use some more velcro.
The sizing tends to run large. I originally ordered an XL, but exchanged it for a L. I'm 6'1" and 215 lb.
Overall I'm thrilled with it!
Yes, I recommend this product.
