I knew the Dainese Laguna Evo would be nice. It's great looking and quality is apparent at a glance. I opted for the perforated since I have the Alien non-perf, and I wanted something for warmer weather.
80 degrees is about all I can do in this jacket. I was hoping for more, but I wouldn't send it back if I could. I had to order the super speed textile jacket for the hot weather. Oh no, now I have 3 Dainese jackets. :)
At 6'4" 200 lbs 44" chest, a 56 fits me nicely.

Buy them while you can, if your size is available. I was looking at these boots in 46 when they became unavailable. Lucky I checked back, and someone must have returned a pair. Bought them quick.
If TCX boots fit you, these are very comfortable on the bike. Not good for walking around, but great protection for the money.

Shoei CW-1 Spectra Faceshield The new Shoei Spectra CW-1 Visor / face shield fits Shoei Qwest, RF-1100 and X-12 Helmets Q.R.S.A. (Quick-Release Self-Adjusting) base plate allows for tool-less shield removal and installation. The spring-loaded base plate (U.S. patent pending 11/799935) pullsthe shield back to contact the window beading evenly and ensures a proper seal The CW-1, three-dimensionally curved shield is both wider and taller than the CX-1V it replaces Scratch-resistant coating 99.9 protection from harmful UV A and B rays A pre-set lever can easily lock the shield in place to prevent the shield from opening unexpectedly, as well as prop the shield open to increase airflow Note Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States

I bought the chrome mirrored for my RF1100 and I like it enough that I bought one for another Shoei helmet I have.
It cuts glare without being too dark in low light. I wouldn't use it at night intentionally, but could make it home if I got caught out

This one goes to my daughter because I didn't want to bother sending it back. I'm 6' 4', 200 lbs. with a 44 inch chest, the XL is just too tight. Too bad because I really like the shirt.

I love this for winter. It's amazing how much more enjoyable cool weather riding is.
I'm 6'4" and all the way up gets me almost all out of the wind. It was noisy when I wore a Joe Rocket RKT 201 but with a Nolan N90 very quiet.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I rode to work recently at 36 degrees with heated grips at about 80 percent, and was comfortable.
I doubt I'll ever use the insulation at the palms because I want the feel, but they are very good if you have heat.

I've seen it many times in other reviews, I hope I never find out how well it protects. I do think it's the best you can get for the money, and a lot better than foam.
Slid right in to the pocket on my Dainese like it was made for it. The jacket was a tight fit anyway, but the fit didn't seem to change. Love it!

I tried to wait for a few more miles before reviewing, but cold weather has set in here and I won't be pushing these hard on cold pavement. They do feel great inside the first 1,000 miles, but most do. I'll try to update when the weather breaks.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I had my first pair for 4 years,40,000 miles, and the soles are worn. I never looked at anything else.
The first time I wore the new boots, I missed a couple of gears. They are a little stiff, but they really need no break in for walking around. Very comfortable the first time I put them on.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I love the way these feel and I trust them to protect me more than the textile pants I own. I like them so much I'm looking very hard at Dainese jackets.
I'm 6' 4" and 200 lbs and the 52 tall fit like they were made for me.
Yes, I recommend this product.
