This is not my first suit, I have raced and crashed in a few suits. I trashed my last suit racing at Summit Point and I took a trip to Revzilla's store to find an inexpensive replacement. I'm 5'9" 180 lbs (fairly muscular build) 40 inch chest, 30" inseam, 34" waist. The size 54 EU fit me well (a little loose in the forearms, tight in the chest) with knox contour back protector and armored shorts. The sizing is pretty close to Alpinestars suits. It fits a little tighter than the Rev'it suits (of the same size). The quality of this suit is very good for $1000.00, leather feels nice and thick, seams look well constructed. You get full length knee + shin armor in the legs, and gp style full length armor in the elbow/forearm. The shoulder armor is somewhat watered down compared to what you usually see in the higher end Dainese suits. Frontal ventilation is good (lots of perforation), however rear (exhaust) ventilation is pretty poor. Overall the suit still breathes pretty nicely. Mobility isn't as good as a lot of higher end suits (accordian stretch panels are minimal) but still gets the job done. Overall I like the suit and it looks REAL nice in person especially considering the price. This is Dainese's entry level suit, and its WAY better than a lot of higher end suits out there.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Will keep your hands warm and dry, however if you are doing extended rides in low temps, consider heated gloves. These gloves fit true to size (I wear large, and large fit fine). I was surprised of the quality in these gloves, fit and finish is very good, especially for gloves made in vietnam. Padding and armor is better than most winter/rain gloves offer.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Deuce Pants by Scorpion Fully armed and full-cut, these ballistic nylon mesh overpants are as cool as they look. Waterproof liner adds warmth when you need it. Articulated EXO-TEC CE armor in the knees and hips combines protection with ease of movement, and wide legs can be worn outside boots. Big zippered pockets keep cargo safely stowed, and plenty of it.

I had two 50 mph lowsides in these pants (once on the left side, once on the right). I slid on my hips/butt for the entire slide both times, and these pants held up perfectly fine (no injuries sustained). They are a little scuffed up, and have a few tears near the calf area (I think the peg did that) but are still usable. I like the feature where the zipper goes up the entire side of the leg, it makes getting in and out a very simple affair. The waterproof liner is a joke (doesn't keep out water at all). Overall not a bad purchase considering I got two crashes out of them!

I've tried 3 different xena disc locks, and received WAY too many complaints from my neighbors due to false alarms. I tried this and it works AWESOME. I have a 2009 Kawasaki Zx6r and it fits around my rear rotor or front rotor fine. I have not had ONE single false alarm, and 0 complaints since I've started using this. My only complaint is that the alarm is very quiet.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I had originally intended to purchase the Dainese New Delmar jacket, however the perforated model did not come in black (which I personally require). I am 5'9" and 185 lbs (avid weight lifter) and the size 50 EURO fit absolutely perfectly, even with the Wave G2 back protector inserted. Usually I fit size 52 Euro in almost all jackets, so the fitment seems very large (order one size smaller than usual). I cannot feel the back protector at all, it conforms to my back very well. It is fall right now (temps of around 40-60F) and you can definitely feel how well this jacket flows air, and I don't even have the vents open! This is probably one of the most technical Dainese jackets out there. This jacket flows insane amounts of air, and makes for a great choice for very hot climates. The liner is very comfortable, and smells fatanstic (almost has a deodorant/cologne like scent to it). Overall, I am extremely happy with the quality, fitment, functionality and aesthetics of this jacket. NOTE: It is not made in Italy, it is made in Ukraine.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I've put about 1000 street miles on these gloves and one track day. The paper thin (but ultra strong) kangaroo leather palm offers superior feel, I can literally tie my helmet with the gloves ON with no problems. I can even operate my touch screen droid cell phone with these on! I'm normally a large in everything however I'm a medium in these gloves. The medium was a little tight but once I got them wet the gloves broke in perfectly. There is armor, padding, and double layers EVERYWHERE on this glove. The armor on the wrist and the palm sliders offer immense amounts protection. I feel these gloves are some of the best on the market, however they are not perfect. Here are my complaints:
1.) The threading on the fingertips have begun to fray and require periodic trimming.
2.) The off colored kangaroo leather palms stain VERY easily, and stay stained.
3.) There is hardly any ventilation, airflow truly sucks on these gloves.
Yes, I recommend this product.
