Provided with removable composite protectors, ventilation, and removable thermal lining, this jacket is also available in a Women's version. Protection Composite protectors certified to Standard EN1621.1/97 Ergonomics and Comfort Microelastic elasticated inserts Inserts in elasticated fabric Neck adjustment Waist adjustment Jacket-trousers fastening system Air inlets on the chest Localized perforation Removable thermal liner Sanitized lining Other Pocket for G1 and G2 back protector Pocket on removable liner 2 outside pockets Internal pocket Please Note Image is of non-perforated jacket.

This jacket is amazingly comfortable. "Micro-elastication" behind the shoulder blades allows for remarkable flexibility. I was expecting flex, but I can give myself a hug in a leather riding jacket... awesome.
The full-sleave, quilted liner helps greatly in cold weather riding. I found it tolerable down to 50 F. in a tee shirt with the liner in. On the high side, I find it comfy up to 80 F. Throw a wind proof long-sleave tee under and the cold range will get down in the low 40's; however, above 85 F. I really found it to be uncomfortable.
Protection is fantastic, though it does not come with a back protector (it does provide a place for one.) The shoulder, elbow and forearm armor is moulded for left/right specific fit. Not at all weather proof, so get some rain gear for long rides.
Style is great! This jacket looks so good it works even when not riding. Stealthy and clean. The subtle reflective, dark grey stitch work adds a safety benefit without standing out in regular light. Dianese certainly has looks down pat.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Dainese New Drake Air Textile Pants Drake pants will surely interest anyone who loves to ride his or her bike especially in the warmer months without wearing a suit or leather pants in order to obtain the protection required. These previously contrasting needs have now been perfectly reconciled by Drake fabric pants. Ample air vents in fretted fabric with closing on the thighs permit fresh air to enter during riding for cooling relief on even the hottest days. When temperatures begin to drop, the air vents can be closed. Safety is guaranteed by removable composite protections in the knee and shins, while extra-strength Cordura 750 fabric offers protection in case of fall. The elastic inserts in the knee optimise the wearability of the article, which is equally suited to metropolitan motorcycle use. Features Removable composite protectors. Cordura fabric 750. Suretta fabric. Perforated fabric. Insert in elasticated fabric. Soft inserts. Calf zip. Jacket-trousers fastening system. Adjustable waist. Sanityzed lining.

Nice pair of riding pants that breathe fairly well. Knee flaps work very well for fast, one-hand-access ventilation including zipper and grommet button. Anti-microbial lining a big plus, as long, hot rides will yield some moisture.
Style is spot on and safety integration is well placed and unobtrusive. I'd like to have seen more settings for waist adjustment, but the velcro quick draws are adequate.
After long rides, pant legs begin to stick to legs a bit, and hard braking can cause them to ride up a bit. Found myself standing up on pegs to adjust fairly frequently after the first 4 hours, but a fair sacrifice for good protection and ease of wear.
Yes, I recommend this product.

A well insulated glove that protects well against rain. Got caught in some dense fog, rain, drizzle, and outright downpour on a 3200 mile road trip. Was I ever glad to have these gloves along.
When my summer weight gloves were no longer comfortable in the cold night rides, these gloves kept my hands warm enough to keep going. In inclement weather, the gloves performed admirably, keeping my hands dry and warm. In the downpour (400ml in a day) the inside got damp when the wrists got wet. It was literally impossible for that not to happen ~ a rare occasion to be riding in.
Great protection with 4 knuckle slider; easy on and off with wrist band. Stylish and stealthy, just the way i like it.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Quick fit for rain gear. Goes on well over full gear (full boots, riding pants, leather jacket, etc. Light weight and protects well, until you get caught in a 400ml downpour. Love the drawstring behind the neck to prevent those nasty drips from falling in off your helmet. Legs have velcro to tighten around pants and boots, but I am going to add a snap button for a more sturdy connection (after 60mph, that velcro does not want to stay together.)
Breathable, yes, not so well as I had hoped, but protection is more valuable than airflow. I also used this as a wind buffering outer layer on a cold night drive. Helped to manage the temperature and wind force.
Good purchase, but I understand there are less expensive options with similar features. Bought mine in a rush.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Honestly not that big a fan, here. The overall protection is adequate, but after riding for a couple of hours, the material absorbs some moisture behind the knee and begins to bind. I find it very breathable and comfortable for the first 2 hours, but after that it is really distracting. Good for a quick ride, if you're not forgoing safety and not wearing riding pants. Fits fairly well under a pair of jeans.
The universal fit (not left or right fitted) is convenient in a rush, but not as comfy for long rides. I bought these knee pads as a novice, and now have a pair of Drake Air Textile pants from Dianese.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Although overall noise level can be a bit loud with all the vents open, this helmet is moderately quiet. Throw in some ear plugs and you'll hear not much else but the growl of your engine. Air flow, and the many vent positions to customize it, is great. Keeps my head cool even at 100 F, so long as your moving. Visibility is superb. I use a dark shield most of the time, which eliminates my need for sunglasses, which I found to not fit well inside the helmet. Sound aerodynamics as well.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Wow! What a stylish boot. I was impressed with the design, but blown away by the comfort. I can wear these boots all day without hesitation. Such amazing airflow. Great non-slip sole as well. Shame that they are becoming discontinued. I bought a second pair immediately. Grab them while they're still available.

Dainese 2 Stroke Gloves Modern and refined style, but also practicality and comfort, all distinguish this glove wirh carbon fibre inserts and pad on the knuckles, conceived for summer tourism. Neoprene cuff, pre-curved fingers and researched ergonomics ensure luxurious comfort during riding thanks as well to the ventilation granted by fabric mesh inserts on the back and perforation on the palm and at the sides of the fingers. Attention to detail, like the natural finish of the cowhide on the reinforced palm and the double reinforcement on the little finger complete the gloves features. Features Carbon fibre inserts on the knuckles, ring finger, and little finger Cowhide leather Stone PU Reinforced palm Adjustable cuff strap Neoprene cuff Pre-curved finger Perforated mesh fabric on the back of the hand Perforated palm Perforation on inner side of finger Soft inserts

My first pair of gloves, so perhaps I do not have all the means to compare the 2 Strokes to other gloves, but they are quite comfortable. Padding and protection is form fitting and stylish as well. The Velcro wrist strap is unobtrusive and stable.
I would definitely recommend these gloves to anyone that wants a rugged yet modern glove with adequate protection.
Yes, I recommend this product.
