I was familiar with these boots from using them in the dirt at Rich Oliver's Mystery School so I knew a lot about how they wear and feel in advance. They are well made and provide great protection. Recently I had these at a track day and felt well protected and comfortable.
The velcro is quite strong and the zipper pull has some attached to it also so that when you pull the zipper up it stays in place under the flaps. On the way back from track day it rained so I got a chance to see how they perform in the wet. My feet stayed completely dry. There is a small vent with a forward facing scoop but I never felt any air flow or water - it must be above the Hipora layer to aid in vapor removal.
Ankle protection seems good and I would expect these boots to help prevent or mitigate any twists.
Fit is roomy. I usually wear a 9.5 and got the 9. The footbed is wide too so my wide feet are comfortable.
Yes, I recommend this product.

It's going to be tough for you to find a jacket with this many features and versatility at this price. It's not going to compete with Rev'It, Alpinestars and the like but if you are trying to make your dollars stretch look no further.
I've had this jacket for almost two years and I now have a real appreciation for how much value it brings to the table. My vain side wants a sleeker looking jacket but I can't deny that it has served me well and keeps going through many different conditions
Style - If you compare this jacket with a Rev'It or Alpinestars you'll find the cut a little generous. For some that's perfect but for me I sometimes look at a Sand 2 and think I'd like the fit more.
Comfort - I think of this as a 3 season Early Fall to Late Spring jacket but you could open all the vents in the Summer and get away with it. Base layers are the way to go for max comfort with the T3.
Protection and Durability - Some of the reviews here complain about stitching. My T3 doesn't have that problem but the main zipper pulls broke and I replaced them with some (better) ones. There is some sign of thread fraying but nothing I'm worried about. I took a low speed low side in the jacket and it left a couple of small holes above the left pocket. The CE 1 armor seems pretty stout.
Air Flow - One of the main selling points for this jacket are all the crazy vent holes. They do flow a lot of air at speed but if you are stopped at a light a mesh jacket or even perforated leather is going to be cooler. If you get this jacket make sure you open the rear vent or you will give new meaning to "Michelin Man".
Features - Phoslite ® material - They really work. Other riders have commented on how well they can see my jacket at night.
Vents - Work well but it's velcro city and takes a little time to get all of them opened or closed.
Rainguard ® barrier - Seems to breathe pretty well and does work in the rain
Waterproof zippered three-position shoulder vents - They really seem waterproof
Durable two-way main zipper closure with dual wind flap - It's still working but I had to replace the zipper pulls. As long as you manage the Velcro the wind and water stay out.
Microfiber-lined collar and cuffs are soft, yet durable - True
Adjustable sleeve takeup straps at the forearm and bicep help to secure elbow armor and material - Really not sure about the value of these
Articulated triple- density back protector - Cheap foam. You'll have to purchase a real one like most jackets
Tour Master’s Z.O.Q. (Zip-Out Quilted) liner features warming 100g poly fill insulation - Yep, this works. The ZOQ has made it easy for me to extend my riding into Winter
Pockets - Everywhere on the jacket including the ZOQ. There are so many I have a tough time keeping track of them.
Adjustable waist belts with TPR pulls help fine-tune the fit - Doesn't help much with bulkiness but they help.
Jacket/pant zipper attachment with the pant side included - Just a short 6" zipper
Yes, I recommend this product.
