Just picked this up from a local dealership before the first ride of the season (being in Canada it tends to snow on May long weekend). I am 6' and about 180 pounds and picked a medium size. I would recommend trying on these jackets if you can before buying them because they fit differently depending on whether the liner is in or not. However, a medium was a perfect fit for me and the pre-curved arms allowed the CE armor to stay in the correct place and stopped the leather from bunching up. After riding for 7 hours straight I have nothing but good things to say about the jacket. Through wind gusts, logging trucks spitting out rocks, and a little shower for good measure, the jacket kept me comfortable and feeling safe the whole time. Also, once the temps got a little higher the vents were a godsend and channeled an impressive amount of air into the jacket.
In short, I would highly recommend this jacket. It looks sweet, fits great, and offers loads of protection in the case of a crash. All of these things definitely makes the price tag appropriate.

I just recently picked up a pair of these from a local dealership and can honestly say they are great. They fit true to size (being a 10.5 in Merrel shoes) and are really comfortable once the buckles are set up properly. On the bike I didn't even know they were there and I had no issues getting them under the leaver on a Gixxer 600. Also, once off the bike I found they were easy to stroll in, even with being fairly tall in the ankle. That being said, the level of protection offered by these boots was a major selling point to me. Originally I was debating between these and a pair of Icon Accelerant waterproof boots. Both are extremely comfortable, and while the Accelerant does offer easier walking, it does not offer the protection of the Patrol boot. The toe cup is nice and firm but does not interfere with the toes while the duel straps allow the ankle to be securely fastened. Also, the overall construction of the boot ensures great abrasion resistance if an accident did occur. As for the waterproofness, I have yet to test it out but seeing the quality of the boot, I would be surprised if it leaked at all.
Overall I am very happy with the boots since they allow me to be comfortable while ensuring my feet are safe in the event of an accident.
