Overall a good chest protector that fits just fine under my jacket. It does fit small. I'm a size 50 (40" chest) in Dianese jackets and I bought a large.
Its very comfortable and conforms to the body well when in a 3/4 position and standing/walking around. I hardly noticed I had it on at times. Typical high quality Dianese stuff.
My only minor (and I mean really minor) gripe with this is it can be a pain to get on and off -- mostly off. I would have rather had it zip up the center. However, its no deal breaker.
As far as protection I personally have no first hand experience testing it, but seems like its an adequate amount of chest/ribs protection.

I switched to these from basically a pair of workboot style boots, so was a little worried these would be goofy looking and uncomfortable to walk-in, etc, but wanted to get something with more protection, lighter and a smaller/flatter toe box. These boot surpassed all my expectations. I've put about 200 miles in them. These boots were surprisingly comfortable on and off the bike, and have a ton of support and protection. The soles are stiff, but no problems walking around in them. However, I wouldn't want to go walking/hiking for miles in them (but its not what they are really for).
I haven't had any situations with rain/water, so can't speak to the waterproofing. I will say they don't breath very well, and can get a little hot when riding in summer weather, but not bad at all -- I've rode in them in 90 degree humid heat, and wasn't unbearable or anything. Its a trade off for the the extra protection and waterproofing vs. good air-flow.
Overall, a great boot for the price.

Fit was great - 5'9 155lbs 39" chest - size small fit me really well.
The main feature I found in this jacket was it does flow a lot of air. Definitely a good summer jacket. First day with this jacket, I was sitting in my driveway with it on in 90 degree heat (60% humidity), and was sweating. As soon as I got moving at ~15mph, I was cool and comfortable as if it was a 70 degree day. I almost felt like I didn't have a jacket on given the amount of air flow at road speed.
Construction of it definitely leaves something to be desired, but given the price range its expected. I actually tugged a bit too hard on the rain liner snap, and ripped out the elastic loop on the inside of the sleeve as an example. Stitching seems good around the jacket -- but was missing a chunk of the "D" in ADV on the embroidering on the neck line.
Protection wise the armor in the elbows and shoulders fit well and sit where they should when riding. Textile down the shoulders to the wrists seems adequate (thankfully have not tested).

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 optimize 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. Sanitized lining.

Great pair of pants. Sizing was as expected. I'm 5'9 155lbs. In jeans I usually wear a 31/30. A size 48 fits perfectly. Excellent quality; no sketchy seams, threads hanging out, or brittle zippers. The armor sits right where it should when riding.
Very comfortable when riding, and walking around. Good air flow with the knee vents opened. Probably my favorite piece of gear to wear at the moment.
