I just received my hi-viz Guardian jacket yesterday, and have not yet had a chance to test its breathability and overall performance in the rain. That said, I wanted to add a couple of points. First off, the jacket I received, unlike in the video, does not store by folding in on itself. There is no zippered compartment on the back of the jacket to do this. Instead, it comes with a separate storage bag (flat and rectangular).
In terms of sizing, I wear a BMW Rallye jacket, size 50 Euro (40 U.S.), and I bought the Guardian in size Large. I think it's a good fit. The Rev'it rain jacket it was replacing was an XL, but I chose L for the Guardian based on the reviews I read here.
Finally, at first glance, the jacket seems well made and I trust its performance in the rain will match that.

Shoei GT Air Journey Helmet Enjoying the ride is what motorcycling is all about and having a helmet that is comfortable and safe is just facilitates that enjoyment. The Shoei GT-Air has been designed from the ground up to be the ultimate all-rounder. With a fully adjustable ventilation system, drop-down internal sun visor, fog-free Pinlock CNS-1 face shield and Shoeis legendary comfort and quality, the GT-Air has all of the features you need to keep your focus on the road instead of on the discomforts a lesser helmet can cause. The Shoei GT-Air was developed using wind-tunnel testing at Shoeis state-of-the-art facility in Japan which lead to an aerodynamically tuned tri-composite shell that mitigates buffeting, as well as wind and road noise. The plush removable liner is comfortable, quiet and removable when you need to wash it. Light, safe and comfortable, the Shoei GT-Air meets and exceeds the needs of contemporary riders, allowing them to enjoy what they love mostthe ride. Aerodynamic Shell Design: Aerodynamic properties are maximized through extensive wind tunnel testing and professional riders feedback Multi-Piece EPS liner enhances impact absorption and ventilation Three shell and four EPS liner sizes provide increased fit options that help to comfortably fit most head sizes Molded air spoiler reduces drag and lift, as well as diminishes pressure on the riders neck while riding at speed Sun Shield Visor System: Built-in QSV-1 sun shield gives riders instant relief from sun glare in one quick motion Visor meets ANSI Z80.3-2010 standard for non-prescription eyeglasses Large and easy to reach switch activates the 3D injection-molded inner sun shield Distortion-free shield blocks 99 of harmful UV rays Forehead area of the outer shell is raised slightly to accommodate the internal sun shield, allowing the integrity of the GT-Airs inner EPS liner to remain intact Ventilation System: Upper Air Intake Vent is positioned to maximize air volume into the helmet interior Large upper intake vent positioned to maximize performance behind wind screens Easy to operate large lower intake vent Lower air intake/defroster vent reduces shield fogging and increases ventilation The rear/neck vents allow for effective air exhaust Breath guard and chin curtain included Advanced Integrated Matrix (AIM): High performance fiber materials are combined with elastic organic fibers to create a shell structure that is ultra-lightweight, rigid and resilient Interior System: 3-D Max-Dry center pad and multi-layered, polyurethane foam cheek pads Chin curtain prevents wind entry and reduces noise Cheek pads are replaceable or removable for maintenance Eyeglass compatible interior E.Q.R.S. (Emergency Quick-Release System) allows emergency medical personnel to easily remove the cheek pads from the helmet of a rider involved in an accident, in turn making the Shoei GT-Air more easily removable Standard Chin-Strap Clip: Neatly secures chin strap CNS-1 Shield System: The CNS-1, three-dimensionally curved shield is both wider and taller than the CX-1V it replaces Includes Pinlock Anti-Fog Lens for more coverage of the CNS-1 shield Dual-Ridge window bead increases contact with the shield to reduce wind noise Scratch-resistant shield coating 99.9 protection from harmful UV A&B rays Safety Certification: DOT Note: Due to manufacturer restrictions, Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States.

I've only been wearing the GT-Air for a couple of weeks, so I'll have a much better idea of how it performs when I head to the west coast in a couple of weeks. I love the internal sun shade and I have to say that it works well (it's easy to move up, or down). The shade is also the right length (not too long and not too short). My only concern before buying was how snug it was when putting it on, or taking it off (I have a Shoei Qwest in the same size (M), and there's no question that the GT-Air is "tighter". I think that's because the bottom edge of the helmet curves under more than some other helmets. It's not uncomfortable, just more snug when putting it on. I was worried about it pulling out my in-ear monitors, but I quickly got used to putting it on and taking it off without much fuss.
