Great rain coat to have in case of rain. I got the neon color scheme and sizing is right on. I wear size 40 with leather jacket and a large fit perfectly over it. used it couple time and does the job the way it's supposed too. simple and effective for a small pouch when folded.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought the jeans with armor and can tell you one thing it's not comfortable at all. they should have add stretch fabric at the knee area for a better fit when in riding position. it get's really tight. was hoping a better design from Dainese. anyway perhaps it will stretch with time I hope so !! sizing i wear 30/32 in regular and had to get a size 29.

It's now 2 weeks in miami weather as summer getting around the corner and can only tell you good things about it. I was looking for summer gloves with good protection and the Spidi RV are exactly what I was looking for. very good air flow !!! with a great comfort . I am a 9' hand size and I had to return the XL for a XXL they run small . thanks again Revzilla for the exchange that was painless.

this is my second Dainese and can only share good impression about it.
I wear size 40 in Dainese jacket and this one run snug compare with my Alien. I mean it's really close to your body. I am 5"11 -155 Pounds chest 39".
this is a European cut for sure.
the jacket feel good on you everything is at the right spot. elbow, shoulder and with my insert back protector this jacket feel like no other.If you ever tried a Dainese product before you know what I am talking about. the windproof liner does the job perfectly from chilly morning. I took it off in the afternoon and voila , air flow all over the inside of the Jacket, that was cool !!!! good reflection at night make you visible in traffic. both Duratex ,Boomerang fabric are well done to make a perfect all around very STYLING, protective summer jacket.
over all it's $$$ investment for a textile Jacket, but remember, you get what you paid for.

hello everyone,
I have bean riding for 2 weeks now with my new Arai and can only share good things about it.
the fit is right and comfortable, enough space for me to wear a pair of sun glasses and don't even feel them at all.
A good venting system giving you airflow all around the inside of the helmet. thanks Arai it's was hot today !!
the face shield mechanism works perfectly offering you a comfortable wind protection for your ride.
regarding wind noise I don't feel much of a different considering it's a open face. let's be realistic we all hear the wind as some point !! comfortable helmet to carry around town.
the shape of the helmet really wrap you face and make you feel almost you are wearing a full face.
at the end you get what you pay for and it's a Arai,
Me like it !!!
cheers all

hello everyone,
I ride a CBR1100XX and got the Xena XX-10 for my bike.
first of all the alarm goes on extremely fast even when you are installing it, and of course if you are having a hard time to take it off.wish happen to me every time . perhaps it's my disc brake size. I personally had to take away the alarm off the lock after too many occasions when the alarm when on for no particular reason.

this is a **** jacket in many ways. the details dainese give you for what you pay for are incredible. the leather is soft and do not need to be worn a lot to feel right. it just happen at the first time you put it on. as far as the air flow the jacket doing a great job. I live in Miami and we are now in Summer and temperatures are like 85 but feel like 92 . when driving the jacket keep you cool and give you a good amount of air flow. did I just said 85 oh boy it's hot outside !!!!!
anyway if I could describe in few words: simplicity,comfort,good protection,excellent quality
they got it right !!!!
I ride a CBR1100XX
