This is a comfortable, understated, good-looking boot you can wear on and off the bike. Oozes the usual Dainese quality. Gore-tex doesn't breath as well as I'd hoped but that's the nature of the material I guess, and I didn't buy these for that purpose.
Comfortable enough to work around a few blocks off the bike. I walk about six blocks daily in these and can't complain.
Compared to my Torque Air Outs, these are quite a bit less protective of course, but they're enough for city riding and, for the less risk-averse, touring.
Fits true to size for me, and I have a slightly wide food.
Love Dainese's boots.

I bought these as overpants (went one size up) and now use them alone as well as over jeans/pants. Comfortable both ways. They flow lots of air, though the effect is greatest when you stand up. I do wish they flowed as much when seated, but they're still good.
The pants feel well-made and robust as well. The material is tough. I don't know quite what to make of the armor; it feels a bit soft and insubstantial, but the science behind it claims it's tough.
I haven't tested them in rain yet, so can't comment on that, though others seem happy with them.
My only gripe - well, more of a wish - is that the legs don't open sufficiently to allow you to slip them on and off with boots on. But then these aren't designed as over pants, so fair enough.
They look great too.
A shout-out to Revzilla: As usual, they were extremely helpful in guiding me through the choices and sizing.

Comfortable, stylish (for motorcycle pants), solid build quality. My only complaint is that I ordered a 'short' version; the overall length was perfect, but the knee pads are positioned far too low, somewhere in the middle of the shins. Odd.
Otherwise, I'm very happy with these.

Bought this for my Honda CBR250. The magnets work well and the bag stays in place, I didn't feel a need to use the straps.
My main issue with it is that, no matter where you place the bag on the tank, the GPS screen is displayed too far back towards the rider. So if you ride a sports bike you can forget about glancing at the screen without straightening your back and forcing yourself to sit upright momentarily and move your head back. It's uncomfortable and distracting, as the point of a GPS holder is to be able to glance at it without diverting too much attention from the road. So I would not recommend this if you ride a sportsbike.
That said, it seems well put together, was easy to install, and in general is a polished product. It's small but you already know that. If you don't have a sportsbike, I think this does the job well.

I had no success getting any Held gloves to fit properly (not sure why) and I'd just about given up when I received these, especially after reading how they fit small. Luckily, my fit exactly right. The simplest thing to do is just measure your palm as indicated. Worked perfectly for me.
I can't really describe them as incredibly comfortable, but then they are brand new and are not supposed to be until broken in. They certainly feel well built though and do not dig into my knuckles or fingers like some street gloves do. The kangaroo palm really does help feel.
Oh, and they look awesome in black.
Quick and painless delivery from Revzilla as usual.

After some trial-and-error and help from the guys at Revzilla, I finally found a good fit - 8.5, which is slightly smaller than my palm measurement of 9. I guess the glove fits a bit large. They're not tight, just right. As others have commented, the thumbs are for some reason long, which makes operating the turn signals a bit awkward, but manageable.
The first thing you notice when putting these on is the sheer level of protection. These things are tough, complex and confidence-inspiring.
The second thing is the level of comfort. I tried on a whole bunch of gloves before settling on Helds, including A*'s, Revits, JRs, and a few more. All of them were annoying to wear and felt wrong, too rigid and with the armor in all the wrong places. Despite being even more protective, the Titans are super comfortable, and the feel through the palms is great. Lots of feedback from the throttle, brakes, clutch.
Others have said these are pricey. Guys, you're buying protection for your hands. If you have $350, then these are worth at least that much.
Plus they're awesome.

A size 52 was a perfect fit for me (5'7, 180 lbs).
This is a really comfortable, incredibly well-made jacket. It also looks a lot cooler than the picture shows. The perforation is noticeable - nothing fantastic, but pretty good and certainly better for the DC summer than non-perf leathers. I strongly recommend this jacket.
Oh, and Revzilla is awesome. Great service and advice on all my gear. My new one-stop shop for all my gear.
